How to Turn Off the Furnace Fan When the Heat is Off

I’ve searched the net far and wide and definitely couldn’t find a solution as to how to turn off the fan on my furnace that runs even when the heat is off. Oh there were tons of websites telling me to turn the thermostat onto “auto” or to simply call in a furnace technician but none of that was good for me. Why? Well for starters, turning the thermostat onto auto did not work at all and hiring a tech was just not in the books especially for something I can guarantee could be done on my own. The problem was, as mentioned, there wasn’t one site on the internet that actually gave me a working solution. So I decided to take matters into my own hand. I gave a call to a […]

Use Your Gillette Razor 60 Times More Than You Usually Do

Honestly, it can be done. And there’s no damn good reason that we shouldn’t be able to use our Gillette razors to shave our faces or body parts, many more times then the length of time the blue or white strip wears out. We’re told by Gillette that in their advertising and have been told for years, that once that blue strips wears out, we need to start using another razor. It’s interesting how a Gillette razor won’t last as long as a toothbrush even though their made of steel. Through some strange reasoning the human mind supposes that when that rubbery gooey strip has run it’s course so have the metal blades. Oh how pompous of you to believe such a tale. Do you really have that much money to burn? You know the […]

The Key Elements Of A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Plan

Chapter 13 is a plan for debtors who wish to keep some of their secured property such as a home or a car. A security interest is created most often when a consumer buys a new product such as a home, auto, or tools for doing work. Because the consumer items are expensive, the debtor needs to take out a loan. The creditor wants to have some assurance, other than the credit-worthiness of the consumer, to insure it will get paid. To protect their loan, the creditor then requires that the consumer agree that if they don’t pay the loan, the creditor can repossess the item that was purchased. Debtors can also agree that creditors have a security interest (a right to repossess collateral on default) even after they’ve purchased the item. Many […]

What is Debt Consolidation And How Does It Work?

Debt consolidation refers to combining the many debts of a consumer into one obligation. A debt consolidation is a way of combining some or all of these debts into one payment. Essentially, the debtor agrees to take out a new loan. The loan allows the debtor to pay off the many claims in return for paying one larger claim. Most consumers have multiple debt obligations simultaneously. Paying just one debt is simpler. Consolidating the debts may have financial advantages too. Consumers who own a home or a car will pay a monthly principal payment plus interest (a loan payment) for the obligations. Home and car debts are often given because the debtor agreed to return the home or car if the loan is not paid. A debt that uses collateral (a home or […]

What Conduct does the Automatic Stay Stop and What Conduct it Doesn’t Stop

The filing of bankruptcy petition (chapter 7 or Chapter 13) automatically stops a lot of activity by creditors. Any creditor who doesn’t stop the activity may be subject to sanctions by the bankruptcy court. There are exceptions as noted below. If an exception doesn’t apply, then the creditor must formally ask the bankruptcy court for relief/permission to continue their conduct. The main things that debtors should know is that once they file a bankruptcy, in most cases, they will be able to breathe, have time to plan their financial future and STOP the harassing phone calls and collection agencies. Collection agencies can no longer directly contact the debtor by calling them at work or at home. Creditors must stop all court case actions. All attempts to repossess your home or your vehicle must […]

The Top 10 Incidentals To Be Ready For When Purchasing A Home

When buying a home it’s always important to ensure everything is in order, and this especially comes true when dealing with the incidentals of buying a new home. On my website where we provide listings for homes for sale in the Brantford area, we get inquires on a regular basis asking us not only whether they can look at various homes for sale, but they also inquire as to what other incidentals, or, hidden costs they should save up for as well. It’s not as simple as saving up the money or obtaining a loan from the bank because during the whole process, unforeseen things will come up that will require you to dip into your saving or pocket book.

Must Read 7 Best Tips To Prepare Your Child For A Visit To The Dentist

Dentists are feared all over the world, by children and adults alike. Most people dread that visit to the dentist, and will only do so when it is absolutely necessary (after that agonizing toothache, or when a tooth falls out or gets broken during sports). Dental phobia is definitely a concern shared by millions of people, and some people will never undergo dental treatment unless they are first sedated. Therefore, if you have been dreading your child’s first visit to the dentist, you are in good company. It is also safe to assume that your child is not looking forward to that visit either, unless they are completely unaware of what goes on in a dentist’s office. Either way, there are certain things that you can do to make that first (or second, […]

Integrating Into The World Of The Amish

The Amish wouldn’t be the Amish without their religion. Their lifestyle and indeed their communities are all religious-centric without exception, and because of this anyone looking to date within the Amish community needs to fully understand their own perspective on religion before getting into the dating scene. About 90% of all Amish people choose to be baptized at the end of their adolescence, or Rumspringa, so by the time they’ve matured, the overwhelming majority will have made a lifelong commitment to their faith. Converting is a huge taboo within the Amish communities. If you run into someone who has not yet been baptized by the Amish church, then religion will be a subject that you two can discuss between yourselves, but if you meet someone who has been fully baptized within the religion […]

Give Me The Top Ten Best Things About Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is a powerful tool for restructuring personal finances, discharging oppressive debt, and granting the “poor but unfortunate debtor” a fresh start. While there are several different methods for filing bankruptcy found in the various chapters of the Bankruptcy Code, the most popular is a liquidation bankruptcy found in Chapter 7. If you need a refresher on Chapter 7 or just some common knowledge, simply follow the following link for the basics: It’s Time to Start Fresh A Chapter 7 is an “erase-your-debts-and-start-fresh” bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7, non-exempt property is taken and sold to pay creditors.

Dionne Warwick’s Latest Attempts to Discharge Over $10 Million in Taxes

Have you heard the news? In September, the bankrupt soul singer Dionne Warwick filed a lawsuit against the United States and State of California to discharge federal and state taxes dating back to 1991. Warwick had previously been granted a Chapter 7 discharge by a New Jersey bankruptcy court in July, and now seeks a determination by the bankruptcy court that her tax debt was included in that discharge. The Internal Revenue Service filed a claim in Warwick’s bankruptcy totaling almost $7 million and the State of California filed claims at over $3 million. Warwick’s attorneys assert that all of her federal and state tax debts were included in the July discharge order. They stated that all of the taxes claimed owed by the IRS and State of California were assessed more than […]

Do You Hear Scratching In Your Walls? You May Need Mice Control

I can’t tell you how often people think that the little noises in their walls are insects when in fact it’s a huge sign they need specialized mice control. So earlier this week I was in Ancaster at a client’s house where she clearly needed mice control or the walls in her home were going to eventually be completely ruined. She was hearing frequent little scratching in her walls in various parts of her home and she decided to give us a call. After I arrived and the home owner explained her problem to me I decided to take a little visit to the attic to see what I could find, if anything. Well I wasn’t surprised. What I found is what we in the animal control industry like to call a mouse […]

The Dangers Of Harbouring Wildlife In Your Home

So I’m not talking about keeping a snake you’ve found, I’m talking about the health risks of stray wildlife like raccoons and squirrels that have made a nest in your home. And it is dangerous. Let me put together a scenario for you to imagine that might put harbouring wildlife in your home into a new perspective. Imagine you’ve seen a few baby raccoons walking around your roof. You think to yourself “hey, it’s not too bad, maybe I’ll just let them stay in my attic for the winter. They’ll probably leave after the winter and there’s nothing wrong with giving them a little heat during the cold days”. Well, generally speaking, the animals themselves will probably do humans no harm and if they reside in your attic, that’s probably where they’ll stay […]
