The boss has been working on his house for a long time, in fact it is more of an estate. He has been fixing up this old country house and the farm buildings around it. Of course it is all a way to show off to his friends the fact that he is successful and so he does not care that it costs a fortune. Me and a couple of the guys at the shop have been working there, today we were helping with a big CCTV system from a place call Hikvision. Of course it is a lot more complicated when you have such a large area that you want to be able to observe. (more…)
I must admit that the first time I saw my wife she was wearing long horse riding boots and breeches that really made her a strikingly beautiful figure backlit by the sun as she was walking her horse back to the paddock where I was fixing some wiring. She could tell that I was a bit flustered when she approached me. I had been working in the heat and traipsing around in paddocks filled with horse manure, so I cannot imagine me looking my best. However, she said my tool belt and the whole jeans and tee shirt thing I had going on caught her eye.
That was over 20 years ago when we first met, and now we have a daughter who has taken up riding horses in competitions. When I saw a young man eyeing up our daughter at the stables while she was wearing her riding gear, it brought back a flood of memories. It also raised an alarm in me as this was my daughter he was looking at! My wife could read my mind and told me to not trouble the boy. (more…)
I recently looked into obtaining cctv kits because of our remote location. My wife and our son live out in a sparsely populated rural area and I’ve begun to worry about the recent uptick in property crimes in the area. Apparently troublemakers from the city have been coming out into the boonies in order to boost cars and anything else they can get their grimy paws upon. That’s really worrisome to me because I’m not here much due to my position at a busy legal firm in the city. I needed protection for my family that would make all us feel better.
We looked into security cameras because our neighbor got a system and foiled an attempted home invasion. (more…)
We scheduled a corporate recognition dinner for promotions and awards a few years ago. It was a dismal failure. We had to make the following ones mandatory and on company time. Needless to say, we did not schedule many. However, one manager located corporate after dinner entertainment that made our events so much fun that we had employees wanting to bring more guests with them. We had to do ticket lotteries in order to not overbook the promotion and award ceremonies for our company.
Of course, people were not lining up to attend the ceremonies, they wanted the food and fun. The corporate after dinner entertainment we hired is an experienced comedic magician who has a really incredible act. The audience is wowed with the comedy and the illusions. It is a fun time for everyone. (more…)
