New Laptops for Our New High School Kids on the Fast Track Through College

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on November 1, 2016 in General with Comments closed |

Kids going to high school. Wow! The time flies. I remember them in diapers like it was yesterday. Now I am waiting for Cyber Monday laptop sales to give them both new computers to use for their high school years. Both of them are part of a program for them to graduate with an associate degree when they finish high school. My wife and I decided we would give them all the tools they need to succeed. Of course, the new computers will also be able to be used for fun and gaming too. You cannot get around that.

Both kids are going to be in visual design careers that include the need to be experts in photography and videography from shooting to editing. We got them subscriptions to cloud-based image and video editing software professionals use, and we are making sure their laptops have discrete graphics cards that can render high-end 4K video without a problem. They are going to be power users of their new computers right off the bat in their high school classes. Read more…

New HVAC Installation for Small Business

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on September 15, 2016 in General with Comments closed |

My company has a broken AC unit in its building, and I guess I should get it replaced, even though I’d rather just forego paying for the replacement. I am kind of cheap like that though, and I know that some expenses have to be paid for, even if you don’t necessarily want to fork out the cash. Anyway, I am looking for info on HVAC installation in NYC and companies that perform such installations. I would like to go ahead and get this taken care of, since I am going to get it done. Might as well not put it off, as nothing good ever comes from procrastinating.

If it were just me, then I probably wouldn’t get a new HVAC system put in the building. Read more…

Video Production for New Advertising Experiment

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on June 25, 2016 in General with Comments closed |

The company that I work for in Singapore has never really put out any advertisements before in its history. For basically the entire history of the business, we have relied on word of mouth in order to get the word out about our company and the products and services that we are offering. It has worked well, but I think it has reached a limit and so we are trying to find a video production house in Singapore e that we can hire to produce some videos for our company, that will serve as advertisements and help us to get more customers.

It is very importnat that we are able to find some new customers, because if you do not refresh your pool of clients with new customers every so often, then it is almost guaranteed that your business is going to stagnate at some point. This is definitely something that we would like to avoid, as we are at a point where we are trying to expand our operations and offer some new products and services. But we can’t do that unless we have demand for the new products and a healthy base of customers to sell them to.

We have had little growth in new customers in the past year, and so we are going to try to do some new things to find new customers. Top on the list is the advertisements, but there are other things being done as well. We are also going to upgrade the website for the company, and part of that is going to involve putting some informational videos on the website for potential customers to watch and learn more about our products. We are going to need to have those videos produced as well, and hopefully by the same company that we have produce the advertisements.

An Apartment That is Perfect for Us

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on May 17, 2016 in General with Comments closed |

My daughter and I have been on our own for her whole life. She is now 15 years old, and I consider her opinion in any major events in our lives. When I found out that the rent was going up on the house we had been renting, I knew that it was time to look for a new place. I asked her what she thought, and she got pretty excited. She told me that there are apartments for rent in Lewisville TX, which is just the next town over. I was concerned that she would have to change school districts, but she was okay with that.

A New Spot to Play Pool

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on April 23, 2016 in General with Comments closed |

I usually play pool at a local bar on the weekends for fun. My friends and I get a couple of drinks and pick a table and try our best to beat each other with alcohol flowing through our system. One day the bar closed down because the owner couldn’t afford keep it open. The owner decided to move to another state and left the building behind. We were left without a place to play pool and hang out, until the idea of playing in the Marq in Tampa Florida came up. One of my friends lived in the apartment building, and didn’t tell us before that the building had its own pool table.

This was the reason why our friend was always so good at pool, even while drunk. Read more…

Infrastructure Changes to Keep a Historical Building Truly Historical

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on December 19, 2015 in General, Historic sites with Comments closed |

Our new air conditioning system on the roof of the historical building came with some logistical issues for maintenance. The manicured lawns and landscaping were kept in pristine condition, and we had people touring the building every day. The inside was retrofitted to provide AC that was unseen. We were clever in hiding the vents. We did not foresee the problem of access to the units on the flat sections of roof until after the fact. Instead of having maintenance needing to be seen with ladders during tours, we had fixed access ladders installed inside. They are hidden inside closets and lead straight up to the roof.historic-museum-building

They are welded with thick rungs that are easy on the feet. The verticals are round for easy handholds. They are painted a dark brown to look like wood. Even if someone opens the closets and looks inside, it just looks like a wooden ladder at first glance that leads to an attic space. Read more…

A Church App That is Very Helpful

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on June 28, 2016 in General with Comments closed |

When I first started attending the church I am at now, I knew that it was where I was meant to be. The pastor was and continues to be on fire for the Lord, and his excitement is quite contagious. Everyone uses their talents to contribute however they can, which is why I was put in charge of technology. I quickly had the church online with a great website along with a social media presence, and then I talked with a Singapore app developer about having an app designed specifically for our church family.

There are nearly 300 people who attend, and I knew that number was likely going to continue to climb. I wanted to reach people however possible, which is why an app is really good for us. Nearly everyone, even the older members of the congregation, has smartphones, which meant that they would be able to fully use the app. I also knew that it would probably reach people who just wanted some basic information about who we are and what we do.

A Tattoo of My Favorite Cartoon Character

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on June 6, 2016 in General with Comments closed |

I never considered getting a tattoo until I saw one on a friend. I had no idea she even had one herself until she wore a bathing suit to my pool party. She had always had it covered up, and it was not something she would bring up because it was just part of who she was rather than something to give her attention. I really liked it though, and I asked her where she had it done. She told me that an artist at a Costa Mesa tattoo shop had inked her just a few years ago, and she gave me the contact info to look at their website.

I went there and was really amazed at what I saw. I had always considered tattoos something that bikers or military men did. I just have not seen a lot on the women that I am around on a regular basis. I was really impressed with the different pictures that I saw of people with tattoos. Read more…

Tennis Bets Are the Easiest

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on April 15, 2016 in General with Comments closed |

I make a lot of tennis predictions on matches because it’s one of the easiest ways for me to make money. People like to bet on football matches, or try their hand at things like baseball, but for me, it seems that it’s simpler to make money on tennis. The other sports have way too many variables that make it so much harder to tell who is going to win. Aside from boxing, tennis is one of the easiest sports to predict. All you have to do is pay attention to the play styles of the players, and you can get a pretty good idea of who the winner will be in any given match.

My friend doubts my ability to pick the winner of tennis matches, so I made a bet with him. Read more…

Leaving the Work Life Behind

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on December 24, 2015 in Work with Comments closed |

At a suggestion from one of my cousins who knows a lot of interesting ways to make money, I looked at the Ewen Chia reviews for a marketing strategy. My cousin looks for any way to avoid having to take a normal job. He feels that these jobs lock you into a certain role, and you become dependent on them to the point that you don’t leave, even if you have the urge to do so. I can’t say I really disagree with him, but I have been given a steady paycheck by one of these jobs for the past 4 years.

A slew of positive reviews surrounded the Chia name. I couldn’t find a single flaw about it, no matter how hard I looked. Read more…

Learning from the Best in Affiliate Marketing

Posted by Timothy Castonguay on December 23, 2015 in General with Comments closed |

If you have never heard of Ewen Chia, then you are obviously not in the online marketing business. Mr. Chia is considered to be the best affiliate in the entire world, and he gets this title because of all the hard work that he has done to make himself the success that he is. He has written a book about how he worked himself from very little to making his first million dollars strictly by doing online work. He also has become so successful that he is able to share his secrets with people who are serious about wanting to enter this very lucrative market. Read more…
