My new girlfriend is involved with some rich people and they invited her down to the track this afternoon. They had some small involvement in one of the horses, or at least that was how it was explained to me. We were up in the jockey club for a little while, but they did not like the fact that I was not wearing a tie. It is that sort of place and I was just not dressed like a millionaire. I was dressed like one of the stable boys who help out the racehorse trainers. I really had no clue how dangerous this stuff is though. It is easy to see how easy it would be to get really bad hurt when you watch the start of the race from up close. That is where the real show is and that is what we were doing. We went down there and watched them getting the horses in the starting blocks.
Those horses are really big and powerful. One of them probably weighs around three quarters of a ton or something like that. They do not always want to get in that starting box easily. Then after they leave the gates there are like ten or a dozen horses and all of them are trying to get out in front of the other horses. The jockeys are swing the little whip things, they call them crops. A lot of the time they are going to all get in a great big pile up at that first corner. They try to get in front obviously and that is where they are all fairly even and all of them want to be in the same place. They want to be out front along that rail. That is the shortest way around the track.
We have tried all sorts of things to get rid of these wild geese, but so far not much has worked. I am the grounds man at a rather large facility where they have several hundred office workers at any one time. My job is to keep the people who are not supposed to be there off of the grounds and apparently that includes annoying birds. I guess that I need to find some professional who can do Canada geese control in NJ. So far I have been trying to run them off in a number of different ways. I got some firecrackers from my brother in law and I lit a few of them and chucked them at the geese. That did not really have as much effect as I would have thought. They flew off, but they only went to the other side of the parking lot. Continue reading Need to Get Rid of Some Nuisance Geese
Trump news that is worth reading is hard to come by these days. Since the mainstream media companies are controlled by big corporate interests, the fact that they are against Trump hardly comes as a surprise. Trump’s ideas about nationalism and his deep suspicion of free trade deals are like an alarm for the big companies who don’t care about borders and want to farm out good paying jobs to serfs in foreign countries who make barely anything. They’re so transparent about their opinions on Trump that I’m surprised so many people fall for the nonsense.
My father is one of the people who railed against Trump quite strongly from the point when it became apparent that he was going to get the Republican nomination. His anger, fear, and paranoia increased exponentially when Trump actually pulled off the election and became president. Continue reading Get a Balanced View About Trump
Being homeless, even for a temporary time period, isn’t an experience that anyone can find fun in having. I was homeless for a little bit because of an apartment fire that took most of my belongings with it. I was living out of my car with a backpack and a couple of books. I used the apartment finder for Columbia SC to find a new place to live. I was able to use this by logging into the local library’s Internet connection with my laptop. The library is one of the few places in the city where anyone can access the Internet for free.
In my old apartment, I lived on the 5th floor, and getting down during the fire wasn’t an easy experience. I had to make a rope out of bed sheets because the stairs were on fire and the elevator was not working. When I got a new apartment, I got one on the lowest floor. Continue reading Left Without a Place to Live
Getting around has always been a difficult task for me. I am obese, and walking for long distances isn’t easy. Whenever I go to the grocery store, I have to use a motorized shopping car. If I can avoid going to the store, I’ll just have all of goods delivered to my home. My limited mobility has prevented me from experiencing Pooja in person, but I can still experience Pooja online. My weight has been a burden to me and prevented me from doing a lot of things, but I won’t let it take Pooja away from me.
There was a bit of a time gap from the moment when I stopped going to Pooja to when I started getting it online. Continue reading It Can Still Be Found Online
Halloween is coming up which is the best time of years for individuals like myself who are in the industry of selling their hair. My hair has always grown absurdly fast. As a kid, it didn’t mean much to me beyond having to get my hair cut more frequently than my brothers. Now as an adult it’s an extra source of income. That’s right; I sell my hair. I’m a hair farmer, you might say. Whether it’s for curly hair extensions or straight up wigs, I sell my hair on the market for a good price.
I found this industry quite by happenstance. I was having my hair trimmed up when my hair stylist asked if I had ever considered selling my hair. Continue reading Make Money Selling Your Hair

Though the world is not shrinking in physical size, it does seem that way. With advances in technology, it is easier than ever to communicate with others across the globe. Whether through social media or something as simple as email, we are all connected as never before.
That said, there are certain parts of the world that do not have access to the best technological resources. In countries such as Peru, some areas may not even have Internet access. This can seriously hamper that area’s ability to grow and thrive.
The global economy is dependent on new technology, and if an area does not have access to this technology, it is possible that it will get left behind. This can do serious damage to a country like Peru that needs the expertise of its neighboring countries to succeed.
There are groups that are dedicated to helping countries such as Peru into the digital age. I am certain that this is a difficult endeavor, as it requires a complete change in ways of living. Continue reading The Importance of Improving Technology
