    The Independence of Renewable Resources 

    It's pleasant being able to have reliable electric providers in a time when our energy infrastructure feels to be vulnerable to cyber attacks and to time itself. American's infrastructure has recently felt to be crumbling around us due to a lack of upkeep in the past 50 or so years. It's an unfortunate symptom of the misappropriation of funds and taxes. It's my personal wish that we could have a choice in where our energy stems from but unfortunately the vast majority of American's energy is, for the time being, always going to come from oil, gas and coal; the top three pollution causing natural resources on the planet.

    The United States still remains the number two polluters on Earth, right behind China. This is not something that we should be proud of in the least. It's something that we should all be working toward improving. The best course of action for the every day citizen is to pressure lobbying groups to plea to the policy makers. We need better policy in place. We need politicians who care about the future of our culture and America's place in the grand scheme of things within the global economy.

    If we continue to rely on both foreign resources and limited, finite resources we're going to find ourselves in dire straits when those resources begin to peter out. We'll find ourselves paying more for oil over seas while being unable to provide our own energy. Germany is a great model for what we should be looking toward as a model for an energy infrastructure. They're building themselves up to become completely independent of Middle Eastern interests while providing their citizens with everything they need with solar energy. They're close to being able to provide 100% of their energy on renewable, green resources - more than any other nation.

    The Perfect Pair of Sunglasses 

    When I decided to buy some designer sunglasses, I wasn't sure if I should go to a local store or try to buy a nice pair online. I figured I would get them faster if I just went to the mall, so that is what I did. However, it did not take me long before I decided that there was nothing at the mall that I would like. There were some decent ones, but none of the designer variety that I had saved up my money for. I then went online and did a search for designer brand sunglasses, and I found a really nice website this way.

    This site sells such a huge variety of different brands of sunglasses. There are ones from Ray Ban, Tommy Hilfiger, Valentino, Nike, and so many others. I thought that it would take me a while to find the right pair, but then I found out that I could filter my search to make it a lot more expedient for myself. I had always wanted to have something by Tommy Hilfiger, but I never imagined that it would be a pair of sunglasses. I didn't even know Hilfiger designed sunglasses!

    I set up a very simple filter. I just looked for Tommy Hilfiger sunglasses, and I was able to look at the dozens of Hilfiger sunglasses on the site. I really liked a pair that had a lot of orange incorporated into it since orange is my favorite color. I went ahead and ordered them after reading some positive reviews on this particular pair of sunglasses, It was really nice that I was able to get free shipping on my sunglasses too. They were delivered within days, and they are not only comfortable but extremely effective as well. I don't think I'll ever own another kind!

    Teenagers, Too Much Toilet Paper and a Clogged Sewer 

    Why do teenagers use a whole roll of toilet paper after each bowel movement? Is it a conspiracy? One of them would go in to do their business and come out with only a few sheets left on the roll. I would notice this when I just changed the roll. They are always careful to not take the last little bit. Otherwise they would be obligated to change the roll. Well, all that toilet paper has to go somewhere. Unfortunately for us it built up in an old sewer line and we needed sewer cleaning in Bronx NY to fix it.

    Old terracotta pipes might be solid and intact at the joints so they will last another hundred years. However, sometimes they might have a little rough ridge or piece that things like toilet paper get hung up on and build up in that area leading to a blockage. A power snake from the company that does sewer cleaning in Bronx NY broke through the clog easily. A visual inspection using a sewer camera showed right where the solids where hanging up. The cutter on the power snake even knocked loose the little bit of mortar or whatever it was that was forming a ridge inside the pipe. It should be good to go for a long time now.

    The plumber told me it might be a good idea to back off on the amount of toilet paper being sent down those old sewer lines. He said most of the time it just dissolves into a slurry, but apparently some brands are more durable than others. I told him that we have four teenagers. He said he would be back soon and smiled before he left. I chuckled a bit. He told me he had kids and understood what I meant. Also, he told me he has no idea why they need to use a whole roll of toilet paper every time either.

    I Needed a Professional Painter 

    When I decided to paint a few rooms in my house, I thought it would be fun to do as well. That lasted just a few hours though before I realized I was in over my head. I had bought a few things to get started, but I soon realized that buying a few paint tools from a local store does not turn a person into a professional painter. I knew that I needed to hire an expert painter in Bergen County NJ to finish the job for me. Actually, it was to start the job, because I really did not get that far with my painting endeavors.

    I looked online because I wanted to hire someone who actually has a paint business. I did not want a handyman for a number of reasons. First off, I would not be sure if the person really did not know what he was doing. With a professional painter, I knew that I would be able to look at some information on the Internet, such as his business website as well as personal testimonials from people who have used his service before.

    I also wanted a professional because I knew that he would have all of the right equipment. Just buying a few things made me realize that paint supplies do not come cheap, so I wanted someone who already had all of the right equipment. Finally, I wanted a professional because I knew that if they somehow messed up, they would be insured to fix it. I really was not expecting this to happen, but I have learned to be careful in any business dealings. It turned out that I did not have to worry though because the painter I hired had all of the rooms painted in no time, and they look absolutely gorgeous!
