I just got a new place in Spring Valley, NY. That is a little town up the Hudson River from New York City in Rockland county. I have been given the job of assistant manager at a small auto parts shop on US 287, we make these tiny parts that go in the engines of cars. I found a little place almost within walking distance of the plant. This morning I started looking for high speed internet in NY. I am going to see if I can afford a satellite dish and the programming package that comes with it. It is not sure if that is going to be possible in the short term though. This move has sort of tapped me out for the immediate future. However my bills are going to go down a lot here.
This place is a couple hundred dollars less expensive in total than my last place. A lot of that is going to come from not spending about fifty bucks a week to keep gas in the pick up truck. My 1999 Ford F 150 is a very thirsty machine, but I am not really going to use it too much here. In fact I probably could find a way there through the woods, but that might involve jumping over a little creek. Obviously that is not something you want to mess up on the way to work. It would take me about five minutes to drive there, but I am thinking that I may as well buy a used bike out of the want ads and use it to get to work. That is a cheap way. In fact there is a little grocery store that is about as close as the plant is, so I can walk there and grab what I need.by Reginald A. Conner with No Comments
Started to work on the Soundcloud page this morning. We do not have a lot of content yet, but we have a demo tape and we have a couple of live shows that we are going to link to the page after we get it up. I am going to upload the shows to Archive dot org, because they obviously do that for free and we should be able to promote a bit like that. I think I shall try to get soundcloud comments about the archive dot org postings. I will get my brother in law to plant a few comments about them. He is actually helping me out a lot with this stuff. (more…)by Reginald A. Conner with No Comments
Getting ready to take off for Caesar’s. I am going to take along with a couple of friends of mine. They are going to be attending something called Ungagged at Caesar’s Palace, or the convention complex that they have there. I do not really know if that is like a different building than the casino itself, but obviously it is where they have the Internet Marketing conference 2014. I am just going to be hanging around though. The three of us are going to enter a Texas Hold ‘em tournament one day, but that leaves me a lot of dead time. (more…)by Reginald A.

I am kind of a recovering spending addict, and I have put myself into a pretty bad financial situation with my poor decisions, when it comes to money. I am kind of upset with myself, for my seeming inability to manage my money better. But I am hoping to learn some sound principles of managing personal finance from American Personal Finance. I really need to talk to someone about finance, because I think that would go a long way in helping me to become better at this sort of thing, which is definitely what I want to be able to accomplish.
I am not sure what all it will take to completely turn my financial issues around, but I know that I have a lot of work ahead of me. When things were at their worst, I had ten credit cards that were maxed out, and that is what got me to thinking about how my choices were ruining my credit score and probably going to cause me a lot of pain and suffering, in the future, if I did not learn how to turn things around. So that is what I have been trying to do.
I have already managed to settle with a few of these credit card companies, but it came at the cost of a lot of my credit score. I am kind of upset about that, but I am not really sure what other options I had. It was a desperate situation, and one that I did not really have many options. Anyway, I want to learn as much about personal finance as I can, so that in the future, I will be able to make smart decisions, and maybe one day I will even be able to save up a good amount of money.by Reginald A.

After being infected with HPV, I didn’t know how to feel. Knowing that you’re infected with an STD is one of the worst experiences that anyone can have and I would never wish it on anyone that I know. I’ve been living with it for several years now and during that time, I have turned down potential partners because I am often terrified of telling them that I have HPV. I don’t want to infect anyone either – I’d feel horrible if something like that were to happen because of me. Even with current HPV treatment I still was far too ashamed to admit it to strangers.
Imagine living like this. I know that there are people who have been able to deal with it themselves but for me, it’s been a nonstop nightmare. Day in. Day out. I sign up for dating websites but I just cannot bring myself to actually message anyone. (more…)by Reginald A. Conner with No Comments
When I come home from a long and hard day of work, I don’t have the energy to clean my home and make dinner. I just want to take a shower, and hop right into bed. Unfortunately, I couldn’t do that, because I still needed to eat and maintain my home. I could pick up fast food for dinner, but I would still have to deal with a home in need of cleaning. I solved this problem by hiring a maid agency in singapore. The maid agency comes by and keeps my house clean and cooks dinner for me, so that when I get home, I can relax and not have to worry about anything.
I found the maid agency from a web search one day. I was curious about having a maid in my home and thought it would be a good idea. I hired a maid from one of the services I found, and the next day she showed up at my home to start cleaning and making dinner. It was like one of those television shows where the family has a maid. At first, I felt bad about the situati0on, because I figured that I was being too lazy to clean and cook for myself, but I got over that idea.
The maid has been working out well so far. Every day when I come home, I have a hot meal waiting on the stove for me. Sometimes the maid will join me for dinner. She’s always interested to hear about how my day went and the kinds of things I do at work. In a way, it’s almost like having a wife or a girlfriend, but without the romantic involvement. I should have gotten a maid a long time ago, because it’s the best thing that’s happened to me.by Reginald A. Conner with No Comments

THE MACHINE, America’s top Pink Floyd show, has forged a 25 year reputation of excellence, extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, while creating another legacy all their own. Over the years, The Machine has touched the hearts and souls of many, selling out theaters, large clubs and casinos across North and Central America, Europe and Asia. They have also appeared at renowned music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Riverbend, Gathering of the Vibes, Buffalo’s Artpark, and Germany’s Rock of Ages.
The New York based band focuses on making every show an authentic Floydian experience for their fans. Known for performing a diverse mix of The Floyd’s extensive 16-album repertoire (complete with faithful renditions of popular hits as well as obscure gems), The Machine’s stellar musicianship, dramatic lighting and video, and their passionate delivery sets them above and beyond the rest.
In the classic tradition, The Machine explores collective improvisation paralleling and even rivaling that of an early 1970’s Pink Floyd mentality. Their use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays continues in the spirit of the later Floyd lineups of the 1980’s. The band is also known for recreating entire albums as a part of their show, accepting requests from fans, and for taking an A to Z approach in which one song is played for every letter of the alphabet. Additionally, the quartet has been sharing the stage with full symphony orchestras, including the Atlanta, Detroit, Pittsburgh and San Diego Symphonies.
