When my sister’s house was broken into a few months ago, it really opened up our eyes to just how rampant crime has become. Sure, we have heard the news stories, but we still thought we were far removed from it. My sister just lives a few miles from me, and it is a very quiet area. Thankfully, no one was home so no one got hurt, and nothing of great value was stolen. It made us realize that we needed to be better prepared though, and that is why I looked into ADT home security for not only my sister and myself, but for our parents too.
I had actually looked at several different companies that offer home security systems and monitoring, but I was most impressed with ADT for a number of reasons. The main one is because of their reputation. A few of my friends have them and they have never had any problems with them. (more…)
I want to move to Florida, because I need to live somewhere where it is hot, or at least, fairly warm, all year long. I am getting older and these old bones do not handle the winter very well. One issue is that I got a hip replacement recently, and now whenever it is cold, the hip aches terribly. I am going to check out Jacksonville FL apartments to see what I can find. I don’t really care too much where it is located in the city, but since I have a bad hip and all, I would like either find an apartment that is located on the first floor of an apartment building, or located in a building that has an elevator.

My friends think I am making a lot of money. They get this idea when they visit me at the luxury Salt Lake City apartments where I live. The first thing they notice is the ornate fireplace and big rooms. They think I am making a lot because they assume this place is costing me a fortune. The nice thing is that my friends would never ask me how much I am paying in rent. It would be considered rude. However, I do not dispel their assumptions by telling them how much my rent costs. I figure I might as well at least look rich for a while. Anyway, they could always call the management office and inquire about rental rates.
I really like it here. I get a lot for each one of my rental dollars spent. I like the apartment building, my neighbors and all of the nice things in place for residents. The grounds are kept neat and clean. They also have a tennis court and a very nice swimming pool. (more…)
