If anyone deserves a break in their lives it is certainly our military personnel who have gone above and beyond and put their lives on the line for us all back home in the land of the free and the home of the brave, right? Most of us know or are related to someone who has or is serving our country, so we know how hard it is for them in so many ways, so any assistance that they are entitled to is a good thing. The Post 911 GI Bill is designed to help them in many ways, one of them being their education.
My brother-in-law is planning on taking advantage of this Post 911 GI Bill and is looking into taking some classes online with the well known Ashworth College that has a huge selection of online courses at very affordable prices. So along with their low prices combined with the benefits offered with the Post 911 GI Bill he should be go to go in a few years with a degree that will help him get a better job when his time is up in the military.
He is looking forward to taking classes online, which will be better than having to attend regular classes that would interfere with his very busy schedule on and off the base. I’m so proud of him and wish him all the luck in world in this challenge that will forever change his and my sister’s lives forever. I can’t wait for graduation, I’ll be the first one to be there to show my support and love for this man who my sister has placed so much trust in the last couple of years.
One of the Big questions these days is about the affordable health care act that will affect each and every one of us here in the good old U.S. of A. Going online can be a great resource for this issue. I have found a great affordable health insurance website that folks in North Carolina can turn to for all of their insurance questions regarding this affordable health care act as well as other health insurance concerns.
This website is nchealthagency.com. My best friend lives in the beautiful state of North Carolina and we share a lot of information via emails and Facebook. The 21st century has truly made communicating a much more interesting, easy and fun way to learn things and to keep in contact with people from all over.
We are so happy to find that our hard work has paid off, complaining to the city about the horrible Apartment Mailboxes that are in such bad shape in the low income apartments that are located on the street behind ours. These apartments need a lot of help and all we can do is keep trying, one step at a time. This has been a big step as far as I’m concerned. There is no need to have people’s mail in old decrepit Commercial Mailboxes that are falling apart and so badly broken that their mail ends up strewn all over the hallway for everyone to have to walk on or walk over, or even worse, take from the rightful owner. That is just crazy and asking for big trouble for so many people that deserve to be treated as such.
So after a couple of City Council meetings and tons of letters we are glad to see them installing some nice CBU Mailboxes over there last week. I’m sure that the slum lord that owns and runs the place isn’t happy about dishing out some of his millions of dollars that he makes each year on his rentals, for brand new Cluster Mailboxes, but we really aren’t concerned with his finances at this point, since he is always seen driving around town in a nice expensive brand new car every year. My God, how some people sleep at night is beyond me!
Next we are going to work on the trash and garbage problem, which will help with the roach infestation that is over whelming in those nasty old buildings that little babies, little kids and whole families are trying to live in and make a life for themselves.
It appears that there has been an extra big push on making sure that your home and or business address plaque can clearly be seen from the street. There seems to be a lot of address plaques that are giving our emergency personnel a fit because they can’t see them and get to the location that they need to get to through their dispatch system that is directing them to an emergency. This issues can turn deadly and more people need to make their address signs easier to read, especially at night.
A lot of cities are going around and painting the house numbers on the curb to help this situation, which I think is a grand idea. Although many cities and towns don’t have the funds available to do this for everyone, so it is up to us to us to purchase an address sign that will do the trick. I’m glad that my taxes are being put to good use and that they provide us all with this safety issue.
I remember when I used to deliver pizza, as a night time job. It was a struggle trying to find the address on many houses and people would get upset if their pizza didn’t come pipping hot. That job didn’t last long, I can tell you that.
I have always enjoyed the look of a house that has window boxes for plants and/or window boxes for flowers, especially the ones that actually are being used and tended to and are full of lively plants and flowers. The house that I grew up in had flower boxes galore around the place. My mother took it upon herself to make our house and our yard as nice looking and homey as possible. When ever I drive by the old house I keep expecting to see those flower boxes and am always depressed to see that they have been long gone and forgotten by newer owners and/or tenants.
The city does a good job keeping up with the care of the flower boxes that have in Old Town. With some of the horrible heat waves that we always can look forward to experiencing every summer, I’m sure it hasn’t been an easy task keeping things from suffering from all the extreme weather that has been messing with us these past couple of years and always looking as good as they do. I’m impressed. My city taxes are hard at work there folks! The roads suck but the planters always look great! LOL
