Secondhand Air-condition

My father and I talked about buying air-condition at home because of the weather.  We are using three electric fans at home and our electric bill is as huge as having air-condition at home.  So we decided to buy air-condition one day.  We are not in a hurry too because we have our priorities.  We have to settle everything before adding expenses at home.  Also, we are considering to buy a second hand air-condition for the price is cheaper.  However, we have to check very well if it still works good and in good condition too.  We both agreed and we will just wait for a perfect opportunity.

Yesterday I got a message from a friend asking me if I am interested to buy air-condition.  She bought new one and thought of selling the old one.  I mentioned to her before that we thought of buying a/c that is why she contacted me first.  Unfortunately, the timing is not perfect.  We have lots of issues at home that should be settled first.  A/C is not our priorities.  Even if the amount is just right, we have to let it pass.  My friend is giving me a discount that is why I really wanted to grab it but sad to say I have to decline it.  Maybe it is not yet time to buy a/c.  Electric fan is not bad though.  Better luck next time I must say.

Downloaded Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Every time I am updating my blogs, I never forget to have my dictionary with me for sometimes I am not familiar with the words I am using, I automatically check of the meaning.  I sometimes use word/words that I read before and thought of using it to give some variety to my article.  This is also to make sure I am using the word/s correctly.  Yes, I promised to use only simple English words, however, sometimes I feel like using other terms to make it sound nice.  It is also good to use other words for it widens my vocabulary.  I used to be a bookworm, but when this new technology surfaces, I seldom open or read books.  My bad. 🙁

When I saw an application of Merriam-Webster Dictionary, I downloaded it without second thought.  It really helps me a lot especially when I am out and feel like writing while waiting for someone, I can search for the meaning of the word/s using my phone or tablet.  I am really glad that this app is invented.  My niece saw me searching for the meaning of the word she asked me once and thought of downloading it to her phone.  Instead of bringing the heavy two volume dictionary that we have, it is best to have it on her phone.  Not heavy and she can search the meaning of the word easily and fast.  Technology these days really helps in our daily life.  Sad that we are dependent with the technology but happy for it makes our work easy and fast.  Still thankful of this development but let us not forget the old ways.

My radio is giving me headache

The radio I have in my room was given to me by my older brother five years ago.  Actually, I beg of him to give it to me because I do not have radio in my room, and I like listening to music before going to sleep.  Also, to listen to when I am not sleepy yet.  My radio is my company since the sister got married.  I find hard to sleep alone.  Yes, I am scared of the scary thoughts I have in my mind from the scary movies I have seen in the past.  You may laugh at me I wont get mad because it is true.  I even laughed at myself too.haha!

I must say, the radio helps me a lot to keep me away from scary thoughts before going to sleep.  Sad to say, my radio is not in good condition lately.  The volume is making me sick.  I can’t listen to my favorite songs because of the broken volume.  The volume is full, and I can’t reduce it.  I have tried reducing the volume but it is not functioning.  I told the brother about it and he just laughed at me.  He said that the radio needs to rest and I should get a new radio.  I guess I have to accept that the radio is busted.  I will try to bring it to the shop and see if they can fix it.  I really need my radio badly, especially when I am alone.

Choosing the Best Metallizing Service

Metallizing services are used everywhere from the automotive industry to the world of packaging consumer goods. But what if you aren’t sure where to find the metallizing services you need? How will you even know where to start? If you’re in the market for PVD, consider this a quick guide to getting it done right.

Understand the Process

Did you catch the acronym above? It stands for physical vapor deposition, and it’s an important part of vacuum coating and other metallizing processes. If you aren’t sure what it is or how it affects your metallizing, it’s time to do your homework before you go shopping for these services.

Consider Pricing Requirements

How will you be charged for the metallizing? Are you expected to pay a lump sum, or can you satisfy your bill in installments? Exactly what services are you getting for your money? Will you receive any kind of warranty or insurance policy to protect your materials even after the metallizing is done? These are all important questions to ask before a single surface gets coated; due diligence today can save you a lot of headache tomorrow.

Think About Features and Functions

Some PVD services are available in a variety of colors, making them ideal for things like lighting or packaging. Others may be applied to everything from plastic to glass while others have more restrictive applications. There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to the kind of metallizing you seek; just make sure you look at all of your options before setting on any in particular.

Research the Manufacturer

If the company hasn’t been in business for awhile, you may want to take your money elsewhere; it’s never a good idea to be someone’s first customer. On the other hand, if they’re a recognized name within the industry, you can feel comfortable that they’ve been around the block and know what they’re doing. You might also read customer reviews to get an even better idea of how they operate and what you can expect from them.

Whether you’re packing products or looking for high-grade PVD coating for industrial processing, these are just a few of the things you’ll want to keep in mind as you search for metallizing services. It’s a decision you should only make once, so don’t be afraid to take your time and get comfortable with your choice.

New cartridge for her printer

My sister is having an issue on the printer she bought two years ago.  It does not print well.  She brought it to the store where she bought it and the attendant told her that it needs new ink (black and colored) and needs some cleaning.  The sister paid the amount of the inks and the cleaning.  The sample print is nice so we thought that cleaning and new inks are the problem.  However, after few months of using the problem is back again.  Of course the sister is angry.  To her the money she paid for the inks and cleaning is wasted.

The sister does not want to buy new printer because her printer still looks good.  The only issue is that it does not print well.  She decided to bring it to the other shop that is expert in printing issues.  After checking the attendant told her that the printer needs new cartridge.  It is a bit old and not in good condition.  It requires replacement.  At first the sister is hesitant of the suggestion but buying new one is more costly.  She take the risk on the suggestion.  The sister’s decision is worth it because the printer now prints really well.  It looks like she is buying new printer.  She can now print test papers and lesson plans continuously.  No more jamming of bond papers.
