Do you believe the reviews?

When Bucky was telling me that he needs to buy a new dual amp switch, we started to look online for a reasonably priced switch. He was leaning towards one particular switch because of the compact size and reasonable price, but then he started to read the reviews associated with the switch. Seems that there were only three reviews on the item, and they all cited some issues with the switch. That made me wonder if the reviews were honest reviews, or if the reviews were put on there by a competitor trying to undermine the sale of the item.

When you shop online, do you usually believe the reviews that are on the website?

Found this cute St. Patrick’s Day Free Clip art from the allthingsclipart dot com website, and thought it was fitting to put it on my blog in honor of St Patrick’s Day. I like the green leaves…… Get it? Hope you have a great St Patrick’s Day and that nobody pinches you!

It has gotten so darn cold

I’m not one that likes cold weather. I should live somewhere where it stays around 70 degrees year around but there’s no such place. If I lived where it’s around 70 degrees in the winter, then it’s so darn hot in the summer that you can’t hardly breathe. I guess I am like everyone else and just can’t be totally satisfied with anything.

I know, I need a summer home and a winter home. I need a summer home in Phoenix Arizona. I don’t think it gets that cold in the winter there but then I need a summer home in maybe Denver Colorado. I don’t think it gets very hot there in the summer. I need to win the lottery if that’s the case. Wait a minute, you have to buy tickets to win that, don’t you?

I found what to give my mother for Valentines Day

Since Daddy passed away, Mom has not taken care of herself like she used to do when Daddy was still alive. She used to always take good care of her skin, kept her hair fixed and wore some make-up. Now she just sort of mopes around without fixing her hair and I haven’t seen her wear make-up in far too long. In fact, she’s starting to really show her age and she’s not that old.

A friend told me about a local spas They said they sent their mother there for her birthday last year and it really made a big difference in her life. She was in the same situation as my mother. She had let herself go too. They told me that they are a results-oriented medical facility and everything they do is without any type of surgery.

I liked the sounds of that because I know Mom won’t have plastic surgery but this sounds like something she would love.
