Trying out Different Betting Strategies

National Hunt racing has been one of my favorite things to see for a long time, but I didn’t start betting on races until this year. I had been curious about it in the past, but never made any bets because I wasn’t sure that I would be able to win. I’ve had unsuccessful attempts at trying to win the lottery in the past, and that soured me on the whole idea of betting money. I started to change my mind when I saw how some of my coworkers were able to win money from making small bets.

I decided to finally give betting a shot and asked my coworkers if they could help me. Each of them had their own ideas of how to start betting, so I just listened to all of their strategies and compiled what I thought to be the best suggestions into one guide. I made a small bet on one race and lost money.

A Safe Way to See the Countryside of Spain

My daughter is graduating from college this coming June. She and her friends want to take a vacation backpacking across parts of Europe. Of course, my main concern is their safety and I wanted to see if I could help them find a safe way to do this. After doing a little bit of research I found a company that offers walking holidays in Spain. This seemed to be a pretty safe alternative than just aimlessly hiking around in a foreign country. This company offers guided walks/hikes in addition to hotel accommodations and all meals are included.

Free transfers to and from the airport are available. This will take them directly to the hotel which is located in the 16th-century village of Parcent. The village itself is going to be exciting for them to explore with its array of local shops, bars, and restaurants. The mother in me is going to worry about if all of them are going to eat enough. Well, that is another thing that is taken care of.

Become Financially Secure Through Investing

My bank account has been looking pretty good this year. I started with investing in AIM early in the year, and now I’ve got a pretty decent profit from it. I’ve earned enough to put myself into total financial security. Before, I was just a person who was essentially living paycheck to paycheck. I barely had enough to put away into savings, especially because I was paying away loans and credit debt. I was starting to think that I would never be able to escape debt, but I decided to take a chance one day. I put some of my savings money into investing and it worked for me. No longer do I have to worry about my finances like before.

Catching a Criminal in the Act

I hate when restaurants will open up locations in areas that surround mine, but won’t come here. One pizza restaurant in particular did this, and I was so mad. I decided to take matters into my own hands by opening a franchise of this restaurant. For a while, it was great. I could have the pizza I wanted, while making money from the restaurant. Then one day the restaurant was robbed after closing time. The thieves broke in and only took money from the cash register. After that, I looked into getting one of those CCTV kits to keep an eye on the restaurant.

The robbery was horrible, but it wasn’t the end of my store. All of the money wasn’t stored in the cash register. There was a safe in the back of the restaurant that was used to store money temporarily, until it could be deposited. Since the robber didn’t know about the safe, all he did was take cash from the most visible source.

A True Family Bonding Experience

Going out into the country for clay shooting in Bristol has to rank as the most enjoyable experiences in my life. I go often to the club with my grandfather and my own father and it’s always a great way to bond with the family. With the political divisions in the country, it’s also a great way to spend time with my Tory father and grandfather without having to worry about politics rearing its ugly head. Considering my strong Labour stand, politics often comes up and you can imagine the arguments we’ve had over the years. All of that goes away at the shooting club.

The shooting club itself is a marvelous structure that’s been around longer than I’ve been alive. Some of my earliest memories consist of me tagging along with my grandfather while he shot clay pigeons on the club grounds. Then we would tour the gun room and look at all the amazing firearms they have available for club members to use. It goes without saying that I couldn’t wait to grow up and be able to shoot alongside my grandfather.

I Have Been Doing Some Shooting

I have been working to establish some new relationships with clients this weekend. I went clay shooting in Bristol along the southern shore of England. In fact that is a lot bigger of a deal that you would think that it is if you were from the USA. In Texas they have some crazy people who go to Denny’s with their assault rifles and it is perfectly legal. They are making some sort of weird political statement about the second amendment. They do not have that over here in the UK. You do not have the right to bear arms and you do not have obscene levels of firearms violence either.

Making Better Sense of Food Waste Management in My Restaurant

When I started a restaurant I never knew how much food waste there would be. We have waste vegetable matter from food prep and we have a lot of prepared foods, such as breads, that are too old for retail sale, but not too old to be consumed. I wanted a way to have food waste management make more sense. The breads are all perfectly fine to be eaten. I take a loaf or two home for my family to eat. However, it is what you would call day-old bread. We are not going to sell it to customers, but it is still great tasting and perfectly nutritious for every other use.

Passing on My Hobby to My Daughter

Considering my decades long penchant for clay shooting, it was practically inevitable I would attempt to pass on my love for this engaging hobby to my children. I always imagined sharing many days at the range with my son, teaching him to love this passion as much as I have over the years. I caught the bug from my own father, who was quite skillful with a shotgun and won several awards many decades ago in the sport. My plans ran into a bit of a hitch when my wife gave me a daughter rather than a son.

But who cares? Women can shoot just as well as the men and I have met many women over the years who are as enthusiastic about this sport as I am.

Putting a Great Product Idea on a Website

Our daughter had a great idea for a product. She took some scrap lumber from the framing of our outdoor garden shed and had us cut it exactly five inches long. My friend Ruiz Morgan cut a whole bunch of them. She then took some flat white paint and flat black paint and expertly painted the pieces of wood after she sanded them. Then she stenciled sayings on them and embellished with some freehand painting. They were little desk signs. She sold a hundred of them, so we got a web designer in Bristol to make her a website to sell them online.

Now we offer display stands and there is a sticker on the back of each one with her business name and a barcode for pricing. Her product is now pretty much available anywhere due to being online, and she sells a lot of them.
