Several years ago I found a pretty cool website that gave me the opportunity to sell some of my old movies, DVDs only. The way it worked is that with the money that you banked from the sales of your DVDs could be used to purchase used DVDs from their site, which worked out really well. Unfortunately the laptop that I was using back then crashed and I lost everything that was on it. Losing the Bookmarks really hurt and I had a difficult time finding tons of the sites that I had Bookmarked along the years. Of course that particular site was one of the many that are long gone and only a memory.
Anyway I have been doing some de-cluttering round the place and realized how many movies we have accumulated again throughout the years. Ones that we have watched over and over and really don’t stand a chance of ever being viewed again by anyone in this house, ones that certainly won’t be missed and no one would lose any sleep over not having around anymore. I figured there must be other websites that assist in the process of getting rid of DVDs and the like, other than eBay. I just don’t like eBay or Craigslist for that matter and would prefer not to hold a yard sale or set up at a flea market just to get rid of some old movies.
I did find a place that gives you cash for your CDs, DVDs and tons of Video Games, so I thought I’d pass the site for musicMagpie.com along for others to utilize in you find yourself in the same situation as I am in. It’s fast, easy and free!

The wife and I have mixed feelings about our eldest daughter, Marie, looking for houses for sale in Calgary, which is in Canada, and is well over a 40 hour drive from here. We are excited about her finding such a wonderful opportunity in her field and we always knew that she would land some where far from home, but there is just no way to really prepare for something like this when the time finally comes.
The Cliff Stevenson Group has been a great help with their Calgary MLS listings. The wife has taken quite an interest in helping Marie with her search for the perfect home in a place that none of us know anything about. My guess is that it is making her feel like she still has some control out of the whole deal. After a while all the real estate websites start looking alike, but theirs keeps them coming back, so they must be doing something right in order to keep the two most important females in my life content. A super friendly website can make a big difference for a company, no matter what type of business it is trying promote.
I’ll continue to let them do the legwork and then I’ll step in, if needed. But they have assured me that they have it well under control for now and that the task of figuring out the packing and the moving will be assigned to me when the date gets a little closer. So far we are looking at September, but it could change at any moment, so maybe I should thinking and start doing a bit of research with movers that will travel into Canada.

In our delivery business we have one very significant problem, we deliver newspapers at night, so finding addresses that are not well marked is a huge problem. In some of the neighborhoods we deliver into this problem haunts us nightly.
After doing a bit of searching we have found a solution to our problem. Golight has a very nice spotlight. This great light is perfect for our business, and Larson Electronics has a huge selection from which to choose, including the “Go Light” that I want to purchase.
Check out the Larson Electronics web site at magnalight.com to see their complete selection of Magna Lights they have on hand, including the “Go Light” I have selected. They have everything from spot lights to flash lights and everything in between. The remote control spot lights are also very nice, and I am thinking about purchasing one of them in the near future.
In our business the inability to locate an address in the darkness of night can be very frustrating and this great light will help us to combat that. I love the fact that the black case color matches my Tahoe and will look very nice mounted on my truck. I think if you are looking to purchase spot lights for your fleet of vehicles, this web site can put you “into the light,” so to speak.

Thought of visiting my father for the longest time, considering I hadn’t seen him since I graduated from College a few years back. I kept catching life’s curve balls and had major financial problems hitting me every time I turned around, so it was very difficult to plan and afford the travel, plus rent while I was out of town visiting my dad.
After such a long time of saving every penny that I possible could, I could finally go! Knowing my fathers biggest habit of smoking cigars, I decided to search the net to find a gift I could bring or have sent to him, and came across a site that offers cigar accessories. I was so thrilled to find a site that offered great accessories at such decent prices. I found a few things that I thought he would absolutely like, and placed my online order in no time flat.
Not long after I had gotten a phone call from my dad, telling me he had a few packages on his doorstep, and was so excited. He waited for me to get there to open the boxes, and when I arrived, it didn’t take him a second longer after I had stepped into the door, to grab the boxes, along with his box cutters and open them with such excitement.
He was totally thrilled and seemed so happy to have his new cigar accessories, and both of us enjoyed our time together. I’m glad I could get him gifts that he actually uses time and time again. Since I won’t be there on Father’s Day, I was glad to see him and spend some good quality time, Mother Nature was on our side, which certainly helped.

I think that I would have a problem with wearing any type of uniform to work, but I do see some of the advantages of having to wear one. Yes you do have to purchase these clothing items, so there is that cost right up front that can prove to be a challenge. Not being able to pull anything out of your closet would hurt me big time. But they have come a long way with today’s medical uniforms that are out there for the huge number of folks that are all ready in the medical field and for the steadily increasing and ever growing amount of people that are entering into this very stable and ever needed profession.
I have found a few sites online that have some nice looking clearance nurses uniforms scrubs that I think would look cute on my kid sister. I’ve sent my findings over to my other sisters and have been waiting for a response to see if they want to go in on some of these clothes with me to give to her for her birthday in the first part of July.
I might have to just break down and call them and see what I can get out of them on the phone, but if I do that I have to know that I will have several hours that nothing will need my attention. You get me and any of my sisters on the phone and you can count on us talking for at least 45 minutes and many times much more than that. And I have 3 sisters that I have to call!!!
