Hold on to Your Gyros

As fall approaches, one takes a look back at summer. And in this look back, a fall is recalled. That fall belonged to a gyro.

Gyros are predominantly the creation of Greek restaurants, but for a time in the early 1990′s even Jack in the Box gave them a go. But the legitimacy of that fast food version is questionable, because gyros NEED to be stripped from a vertical rotisserie.

Nevertheless, clearly gyros can be eaten on the go. But be sure to keep that kung fu grip on it, or you will be repeating a sad tale much like mine.

After a ball game this summer, I grabbed a gyro in a side restaurant while walking back to my home. It was late at night, and when I turned a corner inexplicably the gyro fell from my hand and became a victim of gravity, crashing to the ground and oozing out onto the porous paving.

Here’s hoping the rest of the year is not so tragic.

My Quiet Retirement

A few months ago I retired. I began going to lunch with a group of friends who are also retired. We realized quickly that we were all bored and needed something to occupy our time. All of us had worked at large companies, but none of us wanted to go back to that lifestyle again. We decided to open our own boutique pastry shop.

We all have different roles in our new business. Mine is making sure our brand name gets out there, and this includes taking care of the packaging. I thought it would be challenging since I have always worked in human resources. Fortunately, I found a great company to help with the packaging aspect.

This company does contract bagging. They design and manufacture plastic packaging for any number of products. They even make the bags for consumers to bring their products home. They have no problem with putting our new company name and logo on these packages and have solved one issue in our start-up company.

The Best Town For Work

My family has always been part of the rodeo circuit. We travel from town to town and ride bulls. These contests are always well attended and lots of fun. Yes, it is a dangerous way to make a living, but that is all we have ever done.

Each place we go has different amenities for the regulars. After a while, we get to know everybody at an arena. The events staff is generally a permanent fixture for every venue, and we depend on them doing their job. They are good at what they do, and we appreciate them.

Without the local staff, events would be chaos. They make sure there is a clear schedule for the entire weekend, and everybody knows what they are supposed to do and when it will happen. In many towns they even take the time to chat with us and see how we’ve been since the last time they saw us.

Annie Was Vindicated

Annie had been getting harassed by the local police for years. Ever since she reported one of them to the Chief of Police for breaking into her home, they had made it their mission to make her life miserable. Annie was tired of it. She had lost two good jobs due to their harassment, and had been forced to move four times. Each time she moved, it made her son and her so sad. They longed for a home they could stay in forever, and never have to move again. One day, she was passing by an electronics store when she got an idea. A new item the store was selling would be a perfect solution to her problem. She bought it, and installed it at home. The next time one of the policeman came to harass her, she was ready. Prepared with evidence, she contacted a lawyer and showed him what she had. She had installed Bolton CCTV in her home, and finally had evidence against the police harassment. Now, she and her son could live in peace once again.

Chasing A Dream

I always dreamed of being a model when I grew up. I always loved taking pictures and thought I looked great in them. However, I received a lot of discouragement from my family members and friends. I was told that I would never make it as a model. The words hurt, so I went to college after high school instead of pursuing my dream of becoming a model.

It turned out that college was not for me. I dropped out after a year. I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a model after I dropped out. I hired a wedding makeup artist Manchester, hair stylist and wardrobe stylist to help me get my look together. I also hired a persona trainer to help me get in shape. I took some professional photographs and sent them off to a modeling agency. I am still waiting to hear back from them, but even if the answer is no, I will still pursue my dream.

A Fun Filled Visit

After months of planning and preparing to go to Singapore I was finally on my way for two weeks of fun and adventure in another country. When I arrived I went right to the Singapore hotels to check into my room and unpack. My room was very spacious, clean, affordable and the staff was very friendly.

My first visit was to the Wave House Sentosa to hit some waves, I could not believe I was actually riding 10 foot waves. Later that night I ordered room service and was off to the Avalon club for some drinks. I did some shopping for the next couple days and then visited the Maritime Experimental Museum and Aquarium. After two fun filled weeks I was ready to go home and relax, I will definitely be making arrangements to visit Singapore next year.

Maintaining My Fridge

It may seem as if most individuals take technology for granted and even appliances. When my fridge of fourteen years finally decided to kick the bucket, I didn’t even know what to do with myself originally and I couldn’t fathom having all of my food spoil. So I did what any other decent citizen would do and I rushed to the nearest appliance store and started browsing for fridges. I noticed that many said they have water filtration media built inside and thought this was awesome that the water coming out of my fridge would be filtered and I wouldn’t have to worry about drinking it. I bought a fridge that contained this description the very same day and I am very satisfied with my purchase overall. I truly appreciate my fridge and I am so grateful that technology has allowed us to have such an appliance. Without it I do not know what I would do.

A Golf Story

It’s not clear of the origins of golf and is still being debated and researched. Still it’s a general acceptance that modern day golf began in Scotland around the Middle Ages. The game remained popularity only in Scotland until around the 19th century. It then started to gain notoriety as it began to spread throughout the rest of the United Kingdom. From there it spread in the United States of America.

The game has developed from there into a science to include a set of stringent rules and a landscape filled with pit falls at every turn. Sand traps or silica sand bunker, ponds, hills, even level turf, and of course the rough, all design to exhilarate the senses.

Golf has become synonymous with high profile players such as High ranking military personal, politicians, business persons, and a variety of super star entertainers. However golf has long been opening itself up to the general public where profession and beginners alike can enjoy the game.

In summary, it’s a great outdoor sport that’s easy going, a non-contact sport that can be played by any age group, if it’s your cup of tea.
