Easter Gifts For Customers

Some people give easter chocolates, easter flowers, easter cakes and even easter cookie dough to their customers. But this year, I think we might have to get bottles of  l’aromarine  and stuff them in the easter basket to give out to our customers. Of late, some of the customers that have been coming in don’t […]

Yard Sale Find

Local yard sale on FB is fun to watch – especially when the prices are right – but once in a while you have people asking for prices that I would sell the exact things for in a store – so it’s no longer a yard sale find.  These set of Guitar Heroes and games […]

The Blunt Umbrella

I need a special umbrella – not just your ordinary one.  One that doesn’t break on me – when it’s pouring cats and dogs – one that doesn’t flip inside out – and embarrass the hell outta me in the middle of the road.  But to pay $80 USD for an umbrella – mannnn! it […]

Damn You, Garbage Guys

Once again the lid has been broken off my garbage bin out by the side walk. They just don’t care how they treat other people’s property. And since I can’t booby-trap it to take off a leg or something, I’ll just have to re-attach it, again, and try to make it more solid. Again. New […]

Windows 7 Starter

So we just bought a netbook with Windows 7 Starter on it  – we are so used to our Windows Vista in our old netbook – we find that the Starter comes with limitations.  You see you can’t even change it’s wallpaper for one and you can only run concurrent applications on a PC at […]
