Two Buses for the Wedding Guests

Two Buses for the Wedding Guests

When my daughter told me she wanted to get married at an outdoor park but have an indoor reception nearly 30 minutes away, I was trying to figure out the logistics of that. It ended up being a very small affair where she only invited 69 people, so there were around 77 total including the bridal party. Instead of everyone driving their own vehicles between the two places, I asked her if she had considered transport services in Singapore. I knew that there were companies that transported larger amounts of people via buses, so I looked a few up to see if this was an affordable option.

I was able to fill out a form at some of the sites, and all of them got back to me in a timely manner. That is where the similarities ended. Some of the prices were really high, much more than what we could afford for such a short time. There was one company that gave us a great quote though. Read the rest of this entry

We Had Trouble in Our Own Backyard

We Had Trouble in Our Own Backyard

I was amused, but very thankful, that Canada Geese control in New Jersey exists. I had just moved to the state, and could not figure out how Geese could ever be a problem. I previously ived across the country where it is rare to see them. In fact, I had only seen them twice in my life prior to moving to my new state. I saw them once in a petting zoo, and I later saw some at a pond when I was on a business trip. I was elated to see that there are so many of them around my neighborhood when I moved here. However, I have since learned that they can be a big problem.

I have two small children who love to play outdoors. Read the rest of this entry

I Am Working on the Farm

I Am Working on the Farm

Of course most people do not think of there being farms here on Long Island, but my mother’s family has had a farm here in Suffolk county for at least a hundred years. I have learned a lot of things there. For instance the other day my neighbor asked me if I knew anyone that did Suffolk county tree removal and I asked him what he needed to have done. Of course what he needed was a tree dropped because it was blocking his satellite signal, especially when the weather got bad. At any rate my grandfather has taught me all about this sort of this and I figured that it was not really that big of a deal, although I took some precautions. I climbed the tree with a bow saw and cut the top of it off. Of course I tied it to a rope and when it fell it did not go all of the way to the ground. That way it did not make a big mess when it hit the ground. Read the rest of this entry

Red Flags Up Beware Of Fake Talent Agencies

Red Flags Up Beware Of Fake Talent Agencies

For years, the modeling industry has been plagued with predators and con-men who pretend to be legitimate modeling agents and claim to have top model talent agencies; but in truth, victimize teenagers and con them out of thousand and even hundreds of thousands of dollars. These criminals have spent years perfecting their evil trade and these hapless teenagers are no match for their cunning.

These, so called, modeling agents feed your ego, vanity and need to get what they want. And once youre victimized, the authorities can do little to help you recover what youve lost. Save yourself from the sting of being scammed by being able to identify the red-flags warnings when dealing with these fake modeling agents.

More often than not, these bogus model talent agencies will advertise heavily on television, radio, newspapers and the internet. These scammers will try to lure you by saying that they are conducting Screen Tests for commercials. Then, these fake model talent agencies will claim that theyre clients already appear in several national ads.

Once you bite into their alluring ads, one of their modeling agents will ask you for a prepaid fee for your “screen test”. After they conduct the screen test in a local hotel, they will ask you to buy a copy of the screen test for an additional fee.

The modeling agent will, then, tell you that youve passed the audition to lull you into a false sense of security. But almost immediately, the fake modeling agent will ask you for, yet, another set of fees for you to be part of the model talent agencys introduction program. The modeling agent will claim that they have a high success rate of those who join the model talent agencys induction program. The modeling agent may also claim that the model talent agency he works for is a member of some independent modeling association to keep your confidence up.

In the end, you never truly get anything worthwhile from all the fees youve paid and if you still havent given up hope by then, the bogus model talent agency will continue to bleed you for more. Demanding a refund is next to impossible too, since theyve covered their misdeeds with waivers and receipts and the modeling agent will use these documents against any claim you make. Always be aware of these telltale signs of a scam.

Legitimate modeling agents never ask for up-front fees of any kind. And, real model talent agencies simply ask for casual snapshots of the model applicant. So, dont let your excitement get the better of you; and always use your head.
