Online Shopping Revolutionized

I found this post that I copied and pasted below (in quotes” that I had written back in March of 2009. I have to laugh at the way I sound being so thrilled with the benefits of online shopping. Eight years ago many of us were just beginning to learn our way around the Internet and starting to take advantage of the knowledge that is now available with just a few key strokes . Knowledge certainly is power.

So not only can we find information about the companies that are still working in the old brick and mortar stores, like finding what our local guitarcenter hours are at their various stores located all across the country, as well as being able to stay put and do that shopping without even leaving the house. Using the Internet for all that it has to offer these days.

“Online shopping is definitely going strong these days, people are doing all that they can to save their money in every way possible. The Internet makes it so you don’t have to leave the house, so there is no need to pay the high prices for gas to go running all over town with. Not having to deal with parking issues and grumpy sales associates is a major plus also.
Many of the shopping sites only list stores that have paid them to put their link on them, while ShopWiki has all of the stores listed for your use in reviewing and purchasing numerous items online.
With golf season fast approaching I have found the need for a new pair of golf shoes, so I’ve been spending some time looking around and comparing prices and styles from various merchants, wanting a good looking and good quality foot wear for the sport, but not wanting to pay the high prices that I had seen at the mall the other week when I had the misfortune of spending a few hours there with a friend. So ShopWiki has made the task so very much easier with the way that they have revolutionized online shopping.”

What's Up With KFC

The last couple of times that I have gone to KFC it has been a disappointment. I have talked with several other folks that aren’t happy with what KFC has turned into as well. Either they have closed earlier than than posted, or they have run out of chicken or don’t have any of the new grilled chicken that they are advertising so heavily.

I think the Colonel would be rolling over in his grave if he knew how things were being run these days.

A Night With The Elks

I went to my first meeting with the local Elks lodge last night. It is a small group of folks that are trying to do a lot of good for the community and I have to give them my respect for that. They focus on kids and Vets, two very well deserved causes.

The meeting didn’t last as long as I thought it would. They kept it up beat and interesting. I just might have to join them after all. It’s all good!

Today's Doctors

I called my doctor’s office today and wanted to speak to the doctor I was told that he wasn’t in today. I asked if he could be paged or called with a request to give me a call. To my surprise I was told that he only responds to emails. What is up with that? What if I don’t have Internet access. Crazy!

You Tube

I heard on the radio, on the way to work today, that YouTube is celebrating their 5th year anniversary. Hard to believe that YouTube.com has only been around for 5 years. YouTube has become a big part of my life these past years and I’m grateful that it managed to become such a fantastic resource for music and video’s.

On the radio they were talking about the worst YouTube video ever. I decided to Google “Worst YouTube Video and this one popped up. I must say that it isn’t the best video ever, but certainly not the worst. Makes me wonder……
