A Good Kid Made Bad Choices

This entry was posted in News on by .

My friend’s house was broken into not that long ago. That is sad enough, but who did it made us all stop and think about this world that we live in. It was a friend of her youngest son. Her son didn’t even live at home anymore, but the friend broke in because he wanted to steal just enough to be able to buy his next fix. That is what he told my friend anyway at the police station. One of the first things she did was go to at the suggestion of one of the police officers that she knows pretty well.

I think it was a shock to most of us who know this young man because it is just so out of character for him. He had gone to church with so many of us, and he was basically a good kid who just made some bad choices. He was at the point where he did not need coddled though, because that was not going to help him. Continue reading

Professional Help in Finding the Best Employees

This entry was posted in News on by .

The company I work for has designated me to assist in the recruitment process for new employees. This is a rigorous process as sometimes it can be quite difficult to weed out the poor matches for our company. We strive to have the best employees with the latest skills and knowledge. I’ve been thinking outside the box and have come up with the idea to hire a recruitment company that places the best candidates in a financial services recruitment agency in bristol with leading companies. This just may be the best route for us to take and place the responsibility on them to match us with the best and brightest employees.

One huge benefit of using a recruitment company is that if we find that an employee they placed with us is not a good fit with our company we just have to pick up the phone and let them know. They will then start looking for a replacement candidate. Another benefit is that we can have a predetermined trial period for the recruit to work with us before we extend an offer of permanent employment. And, this works both ways. Continue reading

Pruning the Trees in My Parents’ Back Yard

This entry was posted in News on by .

It has been many years since I have been back home to my parents’ house for a visit. Since it was the holidays and I had some extra vacation time I decided to visit them for ten days. They were just as excited as I was for the visit. After I arrived, it was just as I remembered growing up. There is a lot of truth to the saying “there’s no place like home”. But I noticed the trees in the backyard had been neglected and we needed to find a company that provides tree service in Nassau County. The trees I used to climb and swing from as a child have become overgrown and need some attention. They are a bit scraggly looking and need quite a bit of cleaning up. A friend that I went to college with is a partner in a professional tree service company. I gave him a call to see if he’d be willing to come out and take a look and give us his professional opinion. He agreed and said he would come out that very evening. Continue reading

Making My Final Arrangements Was Something I Had to Do

This entry was posted in News on by .

I don’t want to leave anything to chance in my life. I am probably one of the most organized people that I know, but that allows me to live a comfortable life without any worry. One of the things that I had been putting off though was looking at Jewish memorials in New Jersey. I knew that this was something that needed to be done, but I was not looking forward to picking out the memorial that would end up marking my grave site one day, hopefully in the far, far future.

I know there are some people comfortable with death, but I am not one of them. Continue reading

This is Luxury Living for the Five of Us

This entry was posted in News on by .

I have a pretty big family compared to my friends and family. My husband and I have three children, and we would have had more if I had not had to have emergency surgery after my last delivery. As a result, we can only be a family of five, but that is enough for us. My sister told me that we should look at the Regency at Outlook Canyon apartments when we decided to look for a bigger house to rent. She has a friend who lives there, and she was even considering moving there herself.

At the time, we only had a three bedroom house. Our two youngest daughters had to share a bedroom, and their older brother had his own room, though it was quite small. Though they never complained, we wanted a lot more for them. When she told me that Regency has four bedroom apartments, I still was not convinced. Our children were already used to small living spaces, but I wanted them to have something nicer. Continue reading
