SEO Ranking

I'm working pretty hard to get my page ranked.  Penguin didn't really affect me much, I actually jumped from a 0/10 for page rank to a 2/10 at about the same time.The company I used to work for is my main competition.  They currently rank 3/10, and my coming up the ranks for keywords in our area has apparently made them nervous.  I rank right behind them, but lost a slot today.  They're listing themselves in paid directories, and I can't afford to do that kind of thing now.If anyone knows…See More

Taking Care of Your Leather Furniture

Leather Furniture is beautiful.  It's a great investment, doesn't go out of style, and can last FOREVER...if taken care of properly.I've always liked leather.  Whether it's a pair of boots, a jacket, or that great looking Living Room Set you have that's Chocolate Brown...it's just beautiful, and classy.  Just promise me ONE thing.  Don't use saddle soap on your leather, unless it's for a pair of boots.  That stuff will dry your nicer leather out, causing it to crack and age prematurely.  That…See More

Profile Information

Website
http://tomjoad.newsvine.com
Interests
Politics, Business, staying fit as I get older (not an easy thing), Martial Arts, blogging, and learning to be a man in this crazy world. There's so much involved in that last one, that one could spend a lifetime and still be trying.
Books
"There Will Be Dragons" - John Ringo
"Deshi" - John Donohoe
"The Wheel of Time" series by Robert Jordan
"Angels and Demons" - Dan Brown
Movies
"Dark Knight" - For obvious reasons, I hope. There's no happy ending, and many were upset. This movie shows that the struggle between good and evil is by no means as simple as some may think. So much goes on behind the scenes...
"Iron Man" - This is a powerful tribute to the idea of one man making a difference. Thank you, Marvel Studios and Stan Lee
"The Incredible Hulk" - The scene outside the city, after he destroyed the helicopter is the most eloquent portrayal of the difference between men and women that I've seen to date.
"The Last Samurai" - Simply for the quote "Honor lives in the hearts of those willing to fight and die for it." Not in the movie, but one of the trailers.
Music
Sugarland - Jennifer Nettles knows what it means to be American, and every single song she sings portrays this, whether she realizes or not.

Jason Mraz - The happy Eminem.

Meatlof - Got me through bad times growing up. It's nice to know someone else feels as strongly as you do, sometimes.

Lady Gaga - Something about her makes me think of DeNiro's wife in the movie "Casino". While a married man has no need of them, every bachelor out there requires a beautiful, classy companion on his arm for social engagements. She's it.
Quote
"Any sentient being has the right to freedom, but with that right comes the responsibility to use it correctly, to not impinge on others freedom, and to ensure that one's own freedom is everlasting."

"To be born free is an accident. To live free is a privilege. To die free is a responsibility."

Choosing a Professional Carpet Cleaner or Floorcare Specialist

Posted on April 27, 2012 at 11:18pm 0 Comments

Gentlemen (and Ladies),



As I blog here on AoM, I'm trying to keep the articles relevant to the general theme of the website.  I put up something about dealing with Spots and Stains not too long ago, and today I'm going to talk about some of the pointers of choosing a proper, professional cleaner for doing work in your home.



To begin with, I'd like to address a…

Spot and Stain Removal

Posted on April 20, 2012 at 12:30am 0 Comments

Hey guys (and gals),



I've recently opened my own Carpet Cleaning company after working in the industry for several years.  One of the things that most people don't seem to know much about is how to deal with spills, spots and stains on carpet in their homes.



First off, let me qualify this by elaborating on the difference between a spot and a stain...and yes, there IS a difference.  It's considered a spot when there is a substance on the carpet that coats and obscures…

Rug Cleaning

Posted on April 7, 2011 at 7:52am 0 Comments

Wanted to show off the rug I had to clean by hand yesterday.  It's a Mercerised Cotton Rug, which means it has been treated with a sodium hydroxide bath, then an acidic rinse to neutralize the previous chemicals, the general idea being to increase the strength and luster of the fibers, affinity to dye, and resistance to mold.

 

As such, this was a particularly delicate rug, requiring that it be cleaned by hand.  I had to take a sponge, dip it in cleaning solution, and squeeze…

Power Inverter & Installation

Posted on November 17, 2009 at 12:07am 0 Comments

Gents,



My father has helped me out with installing a Power Inverter in my truck. This is one that he's had for a while, and it only produces a modified sine wave (early technology from at least 7-8 years ago), but it's a 3000 watt BEAST.



First, he built a custom box for it, two cooling fans on each side to promote airflow through the box and over the inverter. He's made attempts to ground it a little better than it is, but has only had limited luck with that. I've tucked… Continue

Hey I saw your comment in the hat forum. I bet a flat cap or fedora would be a good choice for you to wear. Although if I were you I would not wear a real small style fedora. By the way I recieved an email once about that April 15 tea party. Do you know much about it? Is this a serious legit thing? I am an Obama supporter and voter, and this truly a horrible thought.
