I waited for a good while, trying to save up some money and pay off my car loan. It was a great thing though when I got out of the basement of my Mom’s house and found a good North Charleston apartments that is really close to where I am working right now. It takes me about ten minutes to get from there to my office door, less if all goes right. That is a really big help to me, since my Mom’s place is a much longer drive. Read the rest of this entry »

Comments Off on Apartments in Silver Spring MD for Senior LivingFebruary 12, 2017 / Real Estate
This may sound crazy to most but I’m thinking of moving across the country to the Washington, DC area. What’s so crazy about that you might ask? Well, I’m 68 years old and want to explore Washington, DC and the surrounding areas. They are so rich with our country’s history. I opted to settle just a bit outside of DC in Silver Spring, MD. I’m looking for recommendations for apartments in Silver Spring MD. A senior community would probably be best suited for me. My tolerance for mischievous children has severely decreased.
I think I’ll have my things packed up here in California by a moving company and arrange for them to arrive in Silver Spring two weeks after I do. I’m going to make my trek across our fine country an adventure by taking a scenic train route. Read the rest of this entry »
Comments Off on An Apartment That Has a Garage Too!February 8, 2017 / Real Estate
I was interested in looking at the amenities for different apartments in North San Antonio before I picked the one that I wanted to lease a one bedroom apartment from. I knew that I wanted to have a nice apartment, but I also wanted to make sure that I was going to have fun outside of my apartment too. I knew that I would spend a lot of time using the community amenities, so I had to make sure that the complex I chose had plenty of amenities for me to use.
When I saw the Regency at Lookout Canyon apartments, I knew that I had found my next home, and that was even before I looked at any of the layouts for the one bedroom apartments. Read the rest of this entry »
Comments Off on Losing Inhibitions to Express Desire for Your MateJanuary 6, 2017 / Uncategorized
I have always been somewhat shy and even telling my husband that I thought he was attractive or liked him when we were first dating was difficult for me. Not because I didn’t feel those things, but because I had difficulty putting them into words that didn’t cause me to blush or stammer. I recently found my nerve, put aside my shyness and have been expressing my language of desire in more adult terms and my husband loves it.
My husband and I have been married for fifteen years and have a very nice life living in the suburbs with great jobs. We decided to not have children and that has made us very free in our lives. We have traveled a bit and are usually the last to leave parties, not having to worry about getting babysitters home or getting kids up for school in the morning, but we are very conservative people.

Comments Off on After Work Fun Near the ApartmentsDecember 22, 2016 / Real Estate
After work, I go to a bar near the Sandy Utah apartments and have a drink with a couple of my friends. We usually have some beers and play a few games of pool before calling it a night and heading to our homes. One night when we were at the bar, a group of people comes over to the pool table and challenges us to a game. We were confident that we would win the game, even in our inebriated state, so we agreed. We easily won the game, and then the group challenged us to another game, but this time for money.

Comments Off on I Really Found a Great GirlfriendDecember 20, 2016 / Real Estate
I have really lucked out when it comes to college girlfriends. When I met the girl I had no clue that she had any money, although I realized that she had more money than me after I took her out a few times and she paid her own way. Obviously most of the time the girl expects the guy to pay for everything, but then one day she picked me up in a new Lexus and told me that we were going to look at luxury apartments for Jacksonville FL. Apparently she was about to turn 21 and that was a really big deal for her, because both sets of grandparents had trust funds for her. After a bit she told me that both of her parents were doctors.

Comments Off on Going Back to School in HendersonDecember 7, 2016 / Real Estate
I was pretty bummed out because I had lost my job a few years ago. The only good thing about it was that I was given a very nice severance package that did include some educational help as well. I knew that I would have enough to live on if I did not go too crazy with my spending for a couple of years, and that is why I decided that going back to school was in my best interest. I looked at Henderson apartments after being accepted at Touro University in their pharmacy program. I figured if I am going to do this, I may as well do it right.
I wanted to find an apartment that is close to campus because I did not want to have to commute a long way in either direction. I knew that I would be most comfortable in an apartment rather than a home or even a dorm. Read the rest of this entry »

Playing a musical instrument has many benefits. Being able to play a musical instrument can impact your life in many ways and benefit you on many levels, whether it be physically, mentally or emotionally. Let us delve a little bit deeper into the benefits that playing a musical instrument can give you.
It has been scientifically proven that learning a musical instrument affects the brain in a much positive way. This is especially true for children. Indeed, it has been shown that young kids that listen regularly to music or practice a musical instrument do better in school than their fellow pupils. Adults can keep their minds sharp by playing an instrument.
Learning a musical instrument in general is not easy. Because it is not easy, the person has to stick to it if he or she wants to progress. This has the advantage of developing and teaching discipline to the music student.
It has also been proven that playing a musical instrument does wonder to reduce stress levels. Of course, a soft sounding instrument might be better to that effect also playing drums is also very liberating and a great work out that will let you feel content after a good session. You can thus not only soothe your mind but your body as well.
When you will begin to be able to play a few tunes on your instrument something great will happen. You will feel satisfaction.

True, it will be hard in the beginning and maybe not all that fun, but I urge you to stick with it, you will soon have fun. Youll be able to play for your family and friends, at parties, etc.
It is important that you chose the right instrument for you if you want to benefit from all these advantages. Chose the wrong one and it could be more of an headache than anything.

Playing different things with right and left hands is one of the most difficult skills the beginner pianist has to learn. Still, this is the core of piano playing and so it is something to be mastered at an early stage.
I have known very intelligent adults despair to their piano teacher that they’ll ever get anywhere and I’ve known tiny little tots take to it like a duck to water. It’s one of those totally unfair situations when some brains seem to be set up right whilst others have the wiring right for most things but askew for piano playing!
There is no need for anyone to despair with piano lessons ‘though. Just follow the advice below and you will find it easier to learn to play piano well. Sometimes you may feel you are getting nowhere but, although improvement may be slow it will still be there if you persevere.
Consider these three steps to success.
First make sure the piece you are trying is easy enough for you. Don’t try to run before you can walk. Adults often think they can race ahead past the first pieces in the book. Take it steady.
Remember that it’s not just about training your fingers for the piano keyboard, but your brain has to cope with many, many new commands. So, take your time and take each piece steadily. Think about the hare and tortoise and when you start to play the piano, slow really is the best policy.
Second, make sure you are confident about playing each hand separately. So well in fact that you would not be put off playing by any minor distractions.
You should be able to play the left hand and sing the melody of the right hand at the same time or perhaps you might like to try playing the right hand and talking to someone at the same time. In other words, it must become part of your subconscious, so that your hands will just carry on, wherever your mind may be!
Lastly, be sure to take everything slowly at first. When practicing independent hands take a very slow tempo. Watch your fingers playing the notes and know that you are in control.
As soon as you start to play with both hands, cut the speed in half (way slower than you think you could play it or that you know it should go) and be very, very precise over how you play the notes. Watch the fingers playing the notes and be aware that you’re in control of every movement they make (you are, aren’t you?)!
By following these simple steps, you will learn piano very quickly. For some people it will happen almost instantaneously whilst others will have to struggle, but if you persevere and keep repeating these steps the hands will eventually seem to know instinctively which piano notes to play and when.

The Indian Mystical Singer of the 14th Century Meerabai (1498 -1547) was a Rajput princess born in Kurki a small village near Merta which is in the Nagaur district in Rajasthan. Her father was Ratan Singh Rathore who was a warrior of the Rathore clan. Her Mothers Name is not mentioned or known in any of the biography of Meerabai. Her mother was supportive of Meerabais religious tendencies but her mother died early.
When Meerabai was just six years old, her mother gave her an image of Krishna, with whom she would talk every day and night. Krishna became an integral part of Meera’s life. Meerabai was married to Prince Bhoj Raj at very early age. The new family did not approve of her devotion to Krishna as Meerabai refused to worship their family deity, and she would say that she was only truly married to Krishna. Meerabai lost her husband at very early age in the year 1527 in a battle against the Sultanate.
Meerabais devotion at first was confined to her and within the house, but at some time during her devotion she would be carried away with the joy and love for Krishna that she would dance away on the streets of the city singing the songs of praises and love for Krishna. Meerabai would get so engrossed in worshipping Krishna that she would forget herself. She has in that trance state created such beautiful writing which was the reflection of her heart. Meerabais poem and other composition reveal the different stages and experiences of her life. The prayer songs that she composed are still popular among the worshippers today.
Meerabais life story is pieced together from her poetry and stories and as recounted by her community. Her life story is debatable for its historical authenticity. Also what happened to Meerabai is a mystery. People still have a question as to how and where did Meerabai die. But as per the legend goes and the belief of the people Meeras unconditional love and devotion for Krishna, she vanished in the temple of Krishna in Dwarka. It is said that the sanctum doors closed on their own when she was inside and when the doors opened they found her sari wrapped around the image of Lord Krishna. Meerabai had disappeared.
