Repair shops

Being a car novice I worry about sending my car to repair shops just in case they try to rip me off. That’s why I used to go to a friend’s workshop hoping he would look after me and not rip me off.

That was a few years back when I could drop off my car and pick it up on the way to and from work. Nowadays since working from home it is quite a distance to go to my friend’s repair shop and sadly I neglected my car until I started getting all sorts of car problems.

That’s when I realized that I really need to look after my car but I didn’t want to travel far to my friend’s repair shop so I took it to my local repair shop. Surprisingly this local repair shop didn’t rip me off! They were very good with the repairs and I am most impressed with their customer service. I guess I was judging books by their covers which was the wrong thing to do. There are good reliable repairers out there and I need to trust them more than I did.

Breeding budgies

The Australian budgerigar is the world's most popular pet, and therefore the world's most popular bird as well. Don highly recommends breeding budgies as a hobby, particularly for kids. As well as being very easy and great fun, it teaches them about basic animal husbandry and introduces them to applied science.

An aviary is not the best breeding environment for budgies because they tend to fight, much like humans in an overcrowded house. Don recommended putting your breeding pairs into cabinets. These are a bit like pigeon holes, with one pair to each cabinet. A nesting box is attached to the outside of each cabinet, usually with a hinged lid to allow the owner to check its contents. Budgie cabinets with nest box cost about $60 from pet shops.

Phoenix auto repair

Currently I’m having both my cars serviced. It’s been a long time since I’ve had them serviced and they need it badly. When I was living in Phoenix I used to take my cars to Phoenix auto repair for all my car services and repairs. The people down there are very knowledgeable and professional, and they specialize in all car makes and models which suits me just fine because I take my Ford Escort down there.

Being a noob with cars I used to worry about mechanics ripping me off just because I don’t know anything about how cars work. I can rest assured that my cars would be in good hands with Phoenix auto repair because they look after my car really well without doing unnecessary work. They are however very thorough with their work like adjusting the timing belt and replacing the water pump periodically. I would definitely recommend this mob to all my friends and family in Phoenix.

Growing broccoli

Growing Broccoli is easy. It's a member of the same family of plants as Cabbage, Cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts (Brassica family). It's a cool-season vegetable that prefers its temperatures on the cool side. Broccoli has shown in many studies that it and other members of the Brassica family produce a cancer-fighting substance called sulforaphane.

Maternity Clothes

You know its hard trying to shop for maternity clothes that won't make you look so unattractive. Fortunately for all of us there's one place where you can still look good during your pregnancy and that's from where you can find all the clothes you need and still not break the bank. Looking at those gorgeous looking clothes makes me want to get pregnant already!

I'm back

Well well well, looks like I've never left this blog. Everything's still the same as I left it as if expecting me to come back soon and I have. What with the business going on at the moment I haven't got the time to keep updating the blog lately but hopefully I can squeeze some time to pay some attention to it like what I'm doing now. I'm back.

Just like in the Bible

My friend's mother brought the cutest baby crib I've ever seen; they call it a moses basket and rightfully so. It's just like the basket from the biblical story and when you put the baby in it it was just so adorable. I think you can get them from the leader in baby bedding on the internet. Check it out today.
