A week or so ago, I was out throwing garbage when I heard some music playing in the background. A look around, I saw some speakers on the side street. I figured it had to be the town’s idea and a few days later, speakers were sprouting out around the Main Street area downtown. Had I known that the town was thinking of purchasing some speakers for the entire town, I would have recommended some excellent cerwin vega intense 152 v2 passive speaker at musicians friend instead of the ones that are currently being used. Sure there are music going all day now but nothing compares to these speakers that I’ve seen online. Wished the town would tapped into my expertise instead of just purchasing something they are not familiar with.
These just came in from our supplier and they have been selling like hot cakes. I guess this town just see the joke in having this sign in their home because most people do smoke a stick or two of weed and find nothing wrong in it. They are at $40 + tax and if you want one – come into our store and get it.
We can also order any LED signs that you like – but please give us time to order them directly from the supplier for you.
I thought about buying gifts for my nephews and kids of friends this year and decided to start something new and traditional for our family or within our friend’s circle. Some army challenge coins or collectible coins for each one of them instead of things that they can easily get in town or around the market.
These gold coins will only keeps its value and my kid’s can pass them down to their kids and so forth. It would be a family heirloom in the future, something that my future generation can remember me by and to teach them the value of family, love and also how to save money. I’m excited to start a new tradition in our family. What about you?
Yes! We bought a PS4 and not the Xbox One and I’m quite happy with it at the moment. What do I think of it? well, the Blu Ray seems to run better with the PS4 and graphics for games seems better too. As for the size, it’s quite similar to the size of the PS3 but performance is said to be way better.
There were already quite a number of games for the PS4 even before the console was released but I haven’t had many come into the store yet, so am not able to test the games to the max. So more on the PS4 when I’ve played with it a little bit more.
Yes! that’s the reason why I need a bigger store, unfortunately, we still can’t find one to buy yet and the spouse don’t want to move unless we own our next store. They do sell, once they are on the shelves – but shelves space are limited, so you can see why I am thinking all the time about expanding. But this store’s feng shui is so good according to the spouse, she is just not willing to jinx it.
We are not a hardware store but there are some tools that I need around the store for my work and home, so I go to http://www.reidsupply.com for all my tools, maintenance need as well as cable and ties. I like that I can get everything online and under one website and they have just about everything a handy man would need for home and work.I do work a lot on entertainment equipments that need repairs, so some of the hardware that I need can be bought here. And if someone wants to borrow them, I tell them where to get them.
Previously used games are games that were played by another player and he is done with it and wants to trade in for another game or some money. Why parents wouldn’t buy previously used games for their kids is beyond me. Previously used games works just as well as any other games put out in the market and they are way cheaper than the new games.
Take for example the GTA V that just came out in the market – 2 weeks after someone played it, he sold it to us and we resold it for $40 – which is like $20 less than it’s original price. So why not right? why do parents need to pay full price for them when they can easily get them at our store.
We never buy new games, we just wait for someone to sell it and then play it. Same like a console – why buy a new one when you can pay less by 25% for a perfectly good console. Sure there is the argument about warranty but look, most system just don’t die on you, unless they are very old or they are misused. Like I said – all our games and consoles are used – and not one has died on us. So be a smart consumer, don’t give in to the big boys and spend your hard earned money on something that you can get cheaper for.
I don’t want to be a rock star or anything near it but it’s fun to be able to make some music with the things I’ve learned thus far with my guitar lessons. The rocktron utopia g100 at guitar center was recommended by a fellow student in the music school that I’ve been going to and together we want to make some music just for fun. Maybe, one day I will be good enough to play in a friend’s wedding or a family reunion. It’s a healthy hobby as the spouse would like to put it and since she is all for it, we’ve decided to chip in with a few friends and see what sort of music we can make. If all else fail or we sound horrible, at least I can resell it at my store.
Buyers Beware! when shopping on ebay. Being a veteran shopper and seller at ebay, you would think that I wouldn’t be scammed or lose any money – after all ebay did promised to keep the buyers safe. But it is not the case when I bought a retro game for $150 – received the game and found out that the game didn’t work at all. Wrote to seller and he noted that he was selling it as is, even paypal sided with the seller. So I lost $150.00 with no appeal to the situation. So I opened the game to see if maybe I can fix it and to find out that the game wasn’t even what it said it should be. GOD DAMN IT!
So yes, you still have to be very careful when you are shopping at reputable site such as Ebay.
When a friend is moving out of town, what do you do? of course, help him if he asked you to or even if he doesn’t and reluctant to see him go, I would offer my help. With some lowboy trailers , it would definitely have made things very easy but since we didn’t have a lowboy trailer, we had to make do with the trucks and SUVs that we have. I think it’s time that I invest in one of those trailers because it does come in handy and every other month, we have friends moving out of town and some friends coming back from the city. Either way having one of those trailers would be great.

So how does it work? well, the wireless speaker is built into your pillow and transmit the sound directly to your ears without disturbing your partner who may be fast asleep right beside you. But I’m wondering if it doesn’t make any sound, how can you actually hear it well right? But that’s what it said it will do. For $129 – you can order this online at Brookstone. Looks comfy enough and if you want to keep the spouse happy, it is a great investment.
A copy of Minecraft xbox 360 came into the store recently and since the kid is into minecraft of late – like building boxes on the internet, I figured I would bring it home and play it with her on Sundays. Sundays are our father and daughter time – and playing games with her seems to make her happy, so this is what we do.
While some people might think it is quite childish, I find it quite fun. The knocking down walls and finding your way out of tunnels and caves. The adventures are simple enough that my 9 years old can understand, so it’s a perfect game for a father and daughter’s team, in fact we have another player on Minecraft and that is her aunt.
We watched the Internship today and it was hilarious as hell – with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, how can it not be a good movie right? But is internship at Google really like that? I don’t know but I know for sure that Google does feed their staff and they have all sorts of cool stuff in their offices to help their employees relax and play. A lot of tech savvy offices are also trying to follow what Google is giving to their employees like Microsoft, so I’ve read.
Anyhow, the movie is about 2 sales men who lost their job and don’t know a thing about computer or technology but ended up being old interns in Google and how they came out as champion of the internship competition with a group of unpopular nerds. A must watch if you haven’t on the big screen.
