Quickly Passing Through the Stops

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:30 am

Whenever I have to travel on the long road, I would always bring enough change to fill up my cup holder for when I go over the toll bridge. Once I didn’t bring enough change, and I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to pass, but the operator was nice enough to let me through that one time. Now I don’t even bother with the change. I got a card at http://hgsyukle.com that can be used at the bridge. All I have to do is swipe the card and drive right through. I can add more funds to the card, even while I’m on the road.

Recently I forgot to add some money to the card, and all I had to do was use my phone to do it. Using my phone, I went to the load website and logged into my account. I did an automatic add using information that I already had on file, and I was ready to go. (more…)

High Accuracy Balance for Reasonable Price

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:30 pm

I am perhaps a bit obsessive when it comes to measuring things, and I like to have a great deal of precision in my life. I think it is due to the fact that I have always been interested in science, and indeed, I majored in Chemistry when I was in college. I am looking to buy the best analytical balance I can find for a reasonable price. I know that some of the very precise scales out there can be extremely expensive, and I am not sure I need something that is on the high end of the scale. I remember the ones that we had in the chemistry lab at college, they were so accurate that you could literally just blow on them and it would register on the scale.

To that end, those very precise scales had glass enclosures that could be closed after loading up whatever you wanted to weigh. That way, changes in air pressure, say from a draft coming down the hallway, would not lead to inaccuracies in what you were weighing. It was definitely handy when it came to measuring out chemicals that needed to be mixed in exact proportions to achieve the desired chemical reaction. However, I think it is a bit excessive for my needs, and what’s more I am sure that such a balance is out of my price range.

Regardless, I still want to buy one with a high degree of accuracy, and I am hoping to find a good price on one that can measure in increments of one milligram. I don’t think that I really need anything more precise than that, even if I do kind of want something more precise. That should be fine for what i am going to be using the scale for anyway.


A Party at My New Apartment

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:30 pm

I found my first apartment at http://www.thestratfordapartments.com. After moving into the apartment, I decided to ccelebrate by having a get together with some friends. I didn’t want it to turn into some kine of wild house party that would get me thrown out of the apartment before the dust could settle in, so I only invited a certain number of people, and told them not to tell anyone else. I was still pretty worn out from moving all of my items into the apartment, so instead of cooking food, I just decided to order some pizza and chicken wings.

My friends came over and some brought beverages and food with them just in case we needed some extra. One of my friends loves to drink beer more than anyone else, and brought a giant keg for us to drink. I’ll drink a beer from time to time, but I don’t love it enough to drink a whole keg. I hope my friend wasn’t planning on doing some kind of keg stand like during his college days. (more…)
