Yesterday Jeff asked me to help him out. He’s in a real bind. His wife Bonnie has told him that she wants him to buy her some Vera Wang Perfume for her birthday. He has been in a real tizzy since then because he has no idea where he can go to buy any Vera Wang Perfume. So Jeff called me up and begged me to buy some for him to give her. I asked him what in the world made him think that I would know where to go to buy Vera Wang Perfume?
His answer – because you always smell so good! Well, I have to give him credit for being smart enough to come up with that good an answer! I told Jeff that I really didn’t have time to shop for him around town, but I’d go online and see what bargains could be had. I have quite the reputation in our social circle for being a savvy online shopper! I told Jeff that he needs to find out which fragrance in particular Bonnie wanted, and to get back to me and let me know. Once I know for sure which fragrance she wants, I’m sure I can find him a good deal!
This year, for father’s day, instead of buying my father a box of cigars, as I have been doing for so many years, I have decided to buy him a nice set of cigar cutters. He has been complaining about his current cigar cutters and I know that he hasn’t gone out and bought new ones, as of yet.
Since Father’s Day is coming up in just over a months time I think that I will go ahead and start looking around online and see what is out there on the World Wide Web. We really don’t have any tobacco stores around here, the closest one is over an hour and a half’s drive from here and I rarely go to that part of the state. Online is the way to go. I’ll be looking for free shipping and discounts along the way. I’m in no hurry, but I don’t want to wait until the last minute either.
The world is getting smaller every day it seems. The friends that I grew up with have all scattered around the globe. I am so glad that we have email and texting to keep in touch! I miss them all very much and love to hear from them and hear how they are doing, how their families are, who they are working for (or who is working for them!) and how life is treating them in general. Pictures are always a plus.
I do find myself nostalgic from time to time, wishing that we all still lived close together. I miss the great times we had together, the parties we had, the great group dates we went on. Oh dear, I’m depressing myself!
And don’t even get me started on all the wonderful things that Facebook and the other social networking sites. You won’t catch me anywhere near all that drama that is responsible for ruining so many relationships in so many ways and on so many levels. Thanks but no thanks, real life is difficult enough to handle just the way it is without everyone, everywhere knowing your business and everyone elses.
Today I was reading an article about a new product for sale called Luminaze that is made from a mushroom that grows in the Swiss Alps. The product is being marketed to the consumer that wants to lighten dark spots on their skin. I found a website that talked about the product, and watched a video that demonstrated it as well. Basically the consumer washes the skin first, then applies two different products from the company to their skin. I’m not sure why it is a two step product, and which step does what, but with my limited knowledge of science would suggest that if the two products were mixed together in the same bottle or jar that the active life of the product would be significantly changed, and that the resulting mixture would either decrease in strength or increase in strength. Either way the end result would not be desirable.
The product is claimed to work in only seven days. The website indicated that there is only place in the United States that I can purchase this product, and that is at Nordstrom. I went to Nordstrom’s website and found that I could buy it online for $120.00. Since I’ve been seeing age spots on my arms the past couple of years, and have been unhappy with their appearance, I think that I will put this product on my “wish list” for the next time I have a little bit of mad money to spend!
Earlier today I was online looking at the eoncode web 2 print website and saw a link to what they called their “demo” site. Well, being a naturally curious person I decided to see what I could learn about their products from watching the demos. The only problem was, when I reached the landing site, there was nothing there that acted like a demonstration! What is up with that?
