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.”

Milk

There are so many types of milk on the grocery shelves these days. Regular, 2%, 1%, skim. Then there is the lactose free and now we are seeing more and more soy milk, which just cracks me up because there really isn’t such a thing as soy milk, it is soy juice. But I guess no one would be attracted to a product called soy juice. What a joke!

Stormy Weather

We were warned that we could expect a few thunder showers yesterday afternoon, but my god what a storm that turned out to be. I had taken a stroll down to the city flea market, it was an extremely hot and humid day, the vendors were all anxious to leave and get out of the heat. All of a sudden the winds kicked up, big time, the sounds of all of the merchandise being blown over and crashing was as loud as the thunder, with papers & posters flying through the air and numerous canvas tents that most of the vendors use for shade were flying about like balloons.

I made it to my car right as the rains came. I felt bad leaving so many of the vendors in such a state, but I asked a few of them if they needed by help, but they all seemed good to go. I’m sure thousands of dollars were lost yesterday in merchandise, props and equipment, not a profitable one for most of them in the end.

Fun Ahead on July 31st

My folks have asked me to come over next weekend and give them a hand around their place. They are planning a big party on July31st and there is a lot to be done in order to have the place ready for the big event. My mother went online and found several fiber glass planters and wants them all ready by the 31st. I’m sure she was eyeballing my aunt’s newest fiber glass planter that she just purchased online and got the idea from her to use the Internet to find her new fiberglass planters. Eplanters.com seems to be the place to find a good fiberglass planter, they offer free shipping and a no hassle return policy, which is always a plus for today’s avid online shoppers.

They have a wonderful house, the house that we all grew up in. They have done a lot around the house and the yard in order to keep it kept up and updated with the times. They don’t often entertain a big crowd, like the one expected in a few short weeks. They have invited over 75 people, but expect to possibly see about 45 and they are finding themselves a bit overwhelmed with the date creeping up so quickly.

I have my work cut out for me, but I don’t mind. Lord knows they have busted their butts for me all my life and it is the least that I can do. Plus I’m coming to the party and look forward to having a good time with my folks and their long time friends, along with several family members.

Old Folks

A little old guy is walking around in a supermarket calling out, Crisco, Crissssssscoooo!’

Soon an assistant manager approaches and says, ‘Sir, the Crisco is in aisle 3.’

The old guy replies, ‘Oh, I’m not looking for the cooking oil. I’m calling my wife. She’s in here somewhere’

The clerk is astonished.

‘Your wife’s name is Crisco?’

The old guy answers, ‘Oh no, no, no. I only call her that when we’re out in public.’

‘I see,’ said the clerk.

‘What do you call her at home?’

‘Lard ass.’

You gotta love old people!!!
