I thought that was pretty old school

As a kid I attended the oldest, most worn out and depleted middle school in the district. It was the butt of local jokes, a building so dilapidated that it was only in use while they could build another school somewhere close. My education was pretty much the same as anyone in any other school, I think, but the setting made it hard to concentrate. The facilities were so outdated that we simply didn’t have the resources for a lot of modern teaching materials. The electrical grid for the place was weak, there was no internet connectivity for the computer lab, and most of the classrooms didn’t even have air conditioning. The school pre-dated a time when facilities had central HVAC systems, which means that it barely even had any ductwork outside of the administration offices. Some of the classrooms had window mounted box AC units, which were barely strong enough to cool down a room full of teenagers. Most of the classrooms didn’t even have that much, a ceiling fan and an open window were the only methods of cooling they had. On the hottest of days they would double-up the classrooms, so that every kid got to be in an air conditioned room for the day. With that many kids jammed into one room the air quality really suffered, it smelled bad, and all the body heat seemed to cancel out the AC. I won’t tell you that air conditioning is needed for education, but I will say that it really does help out a lot with learning.

I was looking for the discount

The way the two of us make decisions these days is certainly different.  When was the last time you consulted a phone book to find a local restaurant or arrange for any services?   In truth, even in our own home, the “Yellow Pages” are simply put into the recycling bin when they arrive. The technology that is now at our fingertips far exceeds the information found in the book so the two of us depend upon it for our everyday use. In fact, I really almost guess sorry for anyone who pays for advertisements in such periodicals because numerous of them end up with the same fate around the country.  Take restaurants for instance, years ago, if you wanted to find a single in your space you would need to be usual with streets, phone prefixes, or even things you may have seen. Now, you can simply type in something like, “5 star restaurants near me”, plus get a complete listing of what type of food, customer ratings, plus even view the menu before you go. It is the same for just about any industry you can think of.  Companies who are aware of the power of the internet are more willing to make sure that their clients are ecstatic with their goods plus services. Now, they are also aware that a downside review can hurt them. When our family was looking for someone to service our oil furnace last Fall, the two of us headed to the laptop to search for plus study about the local companies before making our choice. There was a single that had various reviews that stated that they were not reliable plus that they never bothered to show up for busy appointments.  We steered clear of that a single plus went with the a single with a high customer rating. The a single the two of us chose even had a fee schedule posted so the two of us knew about how much it would cost for the services before the specialist arrived.

Giving the services a try

The way every one of us make decisions these afternoons is undoubtedly different.  When was the last time you consulted a PC book to find a local restaurant or arrange for any services?   In truth, even in my own home, the “Yellow Pages” are simply put into the recycling basket when they arrive.  The technology that is now at our fingertips far exceeds the information found in the book so every one of us depend upon it for our everyday use. In fact, I truly almost feel sorry for anyone who pays for advertisements in such periodicals because several of them end up with the same fate around the country.  Take restaurants for instance, years ago, if you wanted to find a single in your section you would need to be correct with streets, PC prefixes, or even things you may have seen. Now, you can simply type in something like, “five star restaurants near me”, plus get a complete listing of what type of food, buyer ratings, plus even view the menu before you go.  It is the same for just about any industry you can know of.

Now, they are also aware that a setback review can hurt them. When my family was looking for someone to service our gas furnace last Fall, every one of us headed to the ipad to search for plus learn about the local companies before making our choice.  There was a single that had various reviews that stated that they were not reliable plus that they never bothered to show up for tied up appointments. Every one of us steered clear of that a single plus went with the a single with a high buyer rating.

My expectations were let down

Working as a government business means that you must adhere to all the crazy regulations that go along with the job.  Now, I know that there are planning commissions, studies, plus engineers involved in most projects, but, some of them have legitimately antiquated opinions. I know that some of the people running things need to join the modern century because they are resting in the way of progress.  Both of us have been trying to build a modern facility to help wounded veterans rehab from the lasting effects of PTSD. This state of the art facility will address both physical plus emotional needs plus it needs to be as welcoming as possible, both of us asked to have specialized, zone controlled Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C units that make little to no sound.  Sometimes the hum of machinery can imitate conditions that repair members experienced when on the front lines. This can make matters worse for them plus hinder their reclaimy. The people in charge don’t want to spend the extra money for the units plus want to install a traditional Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system. Large, industrial units can be noisy plus inefficient.  I recognize they figure it is unbelievable enough for all the other buildings so it should be unbelievable enough for this one too. I have a plan to set up a simulation locale for them so that they can hear for themselves the difference between the two systems. The Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C business that we are dealing with she is more than willing to do this because she understands the importance plus would much rather install the quieter units as well. I hope it works because it could mean the difference between a successful treatment center plus one only adds to the problem.

Now, you can simply type in something like, “more than four star restaurants near me”, plus get a complete listing of what type of food, customer ratings, plus even view the menu before you go. It is the same for just about any industry you can believe of.  Companies who are aware of the power of the internet are more willing to make sure that their customers are ecstatic with their goods plus services.

We have a few pieces of furniture

I entirely  suppose that our mom has lost it!  She has been a bit uncommon for years, but, ever since she inherited a substantial amount of money, she has entirely  gone off the deep end when it comes to certain things. This last project she took on has entirely got us wondering if she is stable or not.  She has the money to do it, but, hiring someone to completely redo a room, just because it is Summer instead of Wintertime, is over the top. She now wants to have a storage device so she can customize her house, furniture plus all, for the seasons!. That is crazy! Most people simply change out a few pictures, maybe some knick knacks, or something like that with the seasons, no our mom.  She feels that now that she can afford it, she should have pieces, even furniture that suits her mood plus the time of year. She even hired a designer to come in plus offer advice on her home. That alone is a costly process. Her home is always well kept plus she has great taste, but, I entirely hope that she isn’t wasting money on all of this. The next thing all of us know, she will be having someone build her a current family room table or something.  She does love her lake house plus all of us want her happy. I am going to try plus talk to her again about completely increasing things plus hopefully she will listen to reason. If she wants the furniture to look different, she could always have some custom slipcovers made to change the fabric out each season. Then she wouldn’t need to store extra furniture or waste money on it either.

Sometimes you have to take advice

When my son called and told me that he found the perfect home I was cheerful for her.  She has been residing with roommates for the last several years and has been simply angry so I was blissful he would finally have a area to call his own.  As I was talking to his on the iphone I asked his if he was finally ready to take some of the furniture that he had left behind at the house and put it in his new space.  She hesitated, and it got me wondering why he would not have jumped at the occasion to finally have his own belongings. She said that he would get back to me and then he asked if I wanted to come see his place that weekend.  I said sure and planned to go over on Sunday and figured I would take a couple of his boxes with me. Surely he would want some of his things, but when I arrived I then understood why he had been so hesitant. Apartment was extremely small and there was no way his things are going to fit there. As the two of us start having Tim Hortons Coffee he asked if his father would be able to build his some custom chalets to put in the living room so he would have a place to store his clothes.  The living room was so small that it barely fit his full size bed and a couple of evening stands so he wanted some chalets to hang on the wall. I told his that I was sure that that could be arranged and after that I started looking online to see if there were other custom pieces of furniture that might fit better in his space. I ended up purchasing a small loveseat that fold out into a bed for the residing room and a even smaller dinette set for his kitchen area.
