It’s getting closer to the time we can move into our brand new condo over in the riverbank @ fernvale. We have been very excited anticipating the big move to our new place. I like the fact that we will be living close to the river. I have always enjoyed taking the train down to the area so we could walk along the walkways next to the river. It is a peaceful area to me. I have my favorite spots that my wife and I share.
The nice think about the Riverbank @ Fernvale is that it is very close to all the things you would ever want to do. We have access to the LRT (trains) to get anywhere we need to go in a hurry. We used to have a car years ago, but we sold it since it is cheaper and easier to just ride the trains. We have big shopping places close by, yet we also have natural areas close to our home as well. I don’t want our planned children growing up just seeing a cityscape. Our dog really likes it when we take her to the nature trails.
We looked at the shopping, dining, nature areas and the schools before deciding to send in our application to get a condo here. We did not wait too long. These places sell out long before some of these buildings are even built. Investors are interested in the better properties along with potential homeowners. We made our decision soon after the project was announced. This helped us to secure the exact condo we wanted when we got to see the floor plans.
Now we are just waiting for word of when we can move in. That is the only drawback about buying a place under construction. You get so excited wanting to move in right away even before the ground is broken for construction. It should not be much longer now. Development goes fast here in Singapore.
When I got started into this Internet business thing I had a hard time at first. I owned a brick and mortar store and the way I got customers to come in was different than how I had to get it done online. Years ago I relied on having an ad in the telephone book to get customers. That was how people looked for us and found us. We hung up a big sign on the building too, and we advertised in the newspaper. My online business was different. I needed more info on how to get customers online when we expanded our business presence to having an Internet store.
I was the parts guy in our region. All of those big and little parts you might need to fix just about anything were what we carried in our warehouse. We still have a huge inventory of parts consumers look for but discover are difficult to find. We have parts for old and new things. Selling online was an easy choice. It opened up a world of customers to us. However, we needed great SEO so that no matter what type of part people were searching for they would see us in the top search results.
However, on the other hand, we did not want to show up so much for things that we do not carry. There are auto parts stores everywhere, so we do not carry those things. That is what you call some really highly targeted SEO, and you need real professionals to pull that off. When people are using a search engine to find what it is you are selling, you want your business to be the first thing they see. However, you do not want to attract them to your business if you do not have what they want. This is why we took our time to get more info on the best SEO services that were available to us.
An interesting ad popped up in my email one day. The ad told me to visit the site here for a one of a lifetime deal on a train horn. I wasn’t too sure what a train horn was, but I had an assumption that it was exactly what the name suggested, a horn for a train. It turns out that a train horn is a horn that you install in your car, and it makes the same sound as a train. It was one of those things that I didn’t think I had an interest in, but that was until I actually went to the site and saw what it had to offer.
I wanted to have a horn for my car. The car I was driving was a pretty old model that belonged to my parents. They gave it to me as a starter car until I had enough money to buy my own, but since the car is still in working order, I didn’t see much of a reason to get a new one. The car could use a bit of remodeling, and the horn would be my first change to it.
I selected a nice train horn and had it delivered to my home. I went to work on my car and installed the horn in no time. The horn sounded great, and I’ve been using it as much as possible while driving. Sometimes when I’m not even driving, I’ll press the horn just to hear how it sounds. The train horn has given me an interesting idea for my car. Maybe I can continue on with the theme of trains and make modifications to it to make it more like a train. A smoke stack on the top for the car would be pretty neat.
Insurance is a part of life, as far as I’m concerned. I remember growing up hearing how important it was but I never quite understood just how saturated our society had become with it. It’s shocking to think just how much insurance is actually available to us and the types of insurance exist for us to sign up for. Sure, you can easily find something like home insurance deals as easily as you might find car insurance. But what about those insurance plans that you hear about in the news, the off-hand comments made about this singer or that Daredevil whom have certain body parts insured? How does that work? Does it ever make you wonder that maybe you too should be doing as they are doing and insuring parts of your own body just in case something should happen? Like, for instance, for the most part a lot of the work that I do is on my feet. I do a lot of walking – so why not insure my legs against damage? If they are gone, I would lose out on a lot of money and a lot of work!
Yet, is it worth it do it? I’ve never actually taken the time to look into these kinds of insurance plans but they must have be wildly expensive or so I would think. It makes you stop and wonder what sort of company would be in the business that they are willing to hedge bets against this kind of thing. Take the gamer who insured his thumbs; a smart thing to do, no doubt, considering he was making his fortune via gaming and thumbs are an integral part of gaming. And yet, how does a company gauge the cost of his payments for something like that? What sort of data do they have in order to give him a fair price?
