Easy stock trades

by on Sunday, August 16th, 2009

In the dark ages I used to have to call my stock broker to make a trade or to buy some stock, and of course he got his cut first, someone had to pay for his new car. The best thing I have found in the last few years is online trading and First Trade is the very best online broker that I have found, they let me trade from home or work and do not charge me like the old stock brokers did, that is the part that I like the very best. Low cost and very easy to use, is a winner in my books. Stock trading is fun again thanks to First Trade.

Now that the stock market is on the rebound and I am back in the blck I am very willing to start stock trading again and I look forward to using First Trade to help me make more money and most of all I think that dabbling in the stock market is fun and a great way to make a little extra money too.

First Trade is a great online company that allows you to trade stocks, Mutual Funds, ETFs and Fixed Incomes at very competitive prices and that is what I am looking for in an online trading partner, check them out and see if they have what you are looking for in an online trading partner.

At work

by on Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

The new job that I have taken is wearing me out. I took a delivery job to help pay the bills and I am being driven into the ground at an alarming rate. I guess the biggest hassle about this new job is driving around in the daylight in all of the traffic. I just am not used to driving around in all the mess that driving in the daylight causes. I have driven at night in little or no traffic for so long it will take me a while to get used to the traffic, if this is the biggest hassle that I have I guess I can handle the stress of the traffic and do the best job that I can.

Trade show

by on Monday, June 8th, 2009

A couple of times a year our delivery company goes to a trade show and this year will be no different. Every year we put up trade show exhibits and this year we will be getting our trade show exhibit from Gilbert Displays. This will be the first year we have worked with this company and from what I have seen so far this will be our best year ever. Over the years we have went from having a single table to having a full sized display with video and I am sure that this years display for the trade show will be bigger and better than ever.

Gilbert Displays has every thing you need from the ground up for your trade show display, Gilbert Displays designs and custom makes the displays for the trade show displays and I think  that is out of this world. I love the imagination that goes into building a trade show display booth and I think that Gilbert Design has itself at the top of the field in designing trade show displays. Check out the web site for Gilbert Displays at http://www.gilbertdisplays.com/ to see if they can design something for your company at the trade show you attend every year.

Back to normal

by on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

After three long and stressful years we can finally go back to normal. Our contract with the local newspaper is done with and we do not have to get up at 2 am unless we want to. No more getting out in the cold or rain unless we want to. No more putting up with any crap from the newspaper and we do not want to anymore. It is just a relief to be done with that mess. I am taking a few days off to charge my batteries and get back on a normal sleep cycle then I will hit the streets again.

Last days

by on Saturday, May 30th, 2009

We delivered the newspaper this morning and then we have the Sunday paper tomorrow and then collecting the returns Sunday night then collecting from our stores one more time Thursday and Friday and we are done with our contract. It has been an interesting three years and I had a lot of fun with a lot of headaches at the same time. I am looking forward to moving on and getting another venture started, after I take a few days and relax, something that has been three years in the works for a trip for the two of us.
