SheetMusicPlus

SheetMusicPlus

5/9/19

I'm a professional musician. Before Amazon, this site may have been the go to place to get sheet music. Your neighborhood music store will also use this site to order your music. I ordered a piece of sheet music recently, and ordered express shipping too because my need was immediate. Never got here. I got an email this week saying that it was returned as undeliverable. They refunded the sheet music price but when I called about being made whole for the shipping, they said pretty much, too bad, not our problem, go chase down the shipper and complain to them. I suspect that they didn't get the addressing right.

Lessons learned: I should've gone with my gut and ordered Amazon even if it wasn't under Prime shipping. I would've at least gotten it. Also, Amazon hands down has much better pricing. Even if you use the publishers' websites, you'll get equal pricing (and prob less shipping) through them. However, if you want to wait forever to get your music, pay over standard shipping prices and chance that it might not get to you, absolutely, go with sheetmusicplus. For me, never again. If I'm going to get screwed over, at least I want it to feel good.

I found a coupon for this home cleaner on Groupon with an expiration date 6 months after the day I found it. I called and texted repeatedly, and finally got a response several days later. I was all ready to hire him but he said that he wouldn't honor the Groupon coupon. I pointed out that it was supposed to be good through March 2019 which was months away, and he simply said that he changed his mind and decided not to honor the coupon anymore. I don't know why he did that - was his business so slow that he had to raise his rates back? Anyway, after seeing this arbitrary decision to just pull his sale price, it's a huge red flag to me about this business and I sure wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. I eventually found someone else with total integrity in their pricing and quality.

The concept of home concerts is not new, but in recent years is pitched as a viable way for a performer to maximize their touring time/travel. Concerts in Your Home was acquired by the Listening Room network, which purports to have concerts in public spaces vs residences if I understand the site correctly. I suppose acquiring CIYH was a way as a business to have your cake and eat it too. The site and related online articles I've seen about this org suggest that their domain is pretty small, mainly the state of FL.

Having said that, it's not clear just exactly what sort/genre of performer they want. I don't see classical music listed in the types of concert they host or when they try to describe what sort of performers they admit. But aside from that, what are the various types/examples of performers they want to have in their roster? Folk? Rock? Acoustic only? Rap? Blues? No amplification because it's for smaller venues (and how small are these public spaces?) It's all very nebulous and unclear. As a performer, I've studied this site twice over the course of a year and it just isn't clear to me what the expectations and desires are.

The biggest thing that shuts it down for me, even if I was a performer of one of the genres they do peddle, is that once admitted, they shake the performer down for another $245 according to the website for the privilege of 'belonging' to the roster. Quite bluntly, this is a bad business model. I've found other home/small space concert networks around the country that don't shake down the performer for money, and have happily become involved with those networks without paying anything.

Kroger shows up as stores with different names throughout the western US. Where I live it's Smiths Food and Drug. They have Kroger branded goods and gasoline. Their prices are better than Safeway and Albertsons by far. Meat and produce are good. Gas is usually the lowest in town.

They have a decent selection of wines/liquor, and the prices are somewhat competitive though I find Total Wine to offer more value across the board. What really keeps me from going in is the incredibly cheesy and tacky advertising on their billboards. It just makes the business seem cheap. I feel better shopping at Total Wine personally. They stand on their own image perfectly without having to make stupid jokes in their ads.

These people are the only ones who provide the electricity so it wouldn't do any good for anybody to complain about the service. However, one thing that they can control is their buggy smart thermostat system and application. It gets disconnected all the time, and I constantly have to back out of the app and retry, then usually on the second attempt it connects me to my thermostat.

You have to have trash pickup and there's only one co in town to do it. Yet, it would be easier to pay my bill if a) the interface was more than just rudimentary functionality, and b) if they had an app so we can pay whenever we like. I doubt that technology is anything important to a bunch of garbage collectors though.

Indeed

Indeed

I've used Indeed to search for jobs. They have a great many openings posted, but I personally found a lot of them in my field to be people trying to mislead you into thinking that it's a bigger/better job than it actually is - I know that from being very connected to players in the industry here. I suppose that eventually you could find a job here, but it seems that the really good jobs are not advertised. I sure haven't seen them. Maybe good for temp or seasonal jobs, but they don't seem to be openings that I can't find when I search other common job sites.

I used Honey as a browser extension for quite a while, most notably on Amazon. Shopping over a great variety of items, I found that the savings that Honey finds for all of the items is either the same savings as Amazon, Walmart, Target etc, and when it does find a difference, it doesn't seem to be more than 25 to 50 cents cheaper. I believe that Honey takes up some unnecessary computer/tablet/phone system resources, which can slow your device down. Not worth it to me.

Place was clean, counter staff courteous, and prices are pretty good. That said, I got the bulgogi dinner. It didn't taste like the charcoal grilled bulgogi that I've had at other local restaurants since it was probably just fried, and tasted actually like sukiyaki meat. I like sukiyaki a lot so I didn't have a big problem with the taste. Only wished that it tasted like authentically prepared bulgogi.

Megabus

I took a round trip day trip from Las Vegas to Phoenix on 9-29-18. On the outbound, the driver engaged with us before the ride, telling us about his experience/experiences as a driver, then explained everything we needed to know about the ride, including the wifi and what rows didn't have power outlets. He also asked everyone if they wanted to see a movie during the ride, explaining that due to some people not liking the movie going on, he needed to ask to make sure everyone was ok with it. He offered up some good choices for us. HOWEVER, on the late afternoon ride back, a different, and clearly a new and inexperienced driver took me back to Las Vegas. No personality, didn't explain anything beyond the stops he was going to make, nothing about the wifi (which only worked 1/3 of the trip before it quit), and when a couple passengers asked if we could view a movie, he just said very flatly, NO, and sat down to drive.

I say that he was totally inexperienced with the route because 1) he had to use Google Maps on his tablet, and 2) he took the turnoff into Boulder City, local roads with lots of traffic lights, to get back to Las Vegas, when it is in fact possible to just stay on the new freeway and end up on the same Beltway much sooner! He added 35 minutes to the ride as a result and we arrived really late. I'd ride Megabus again because the price is right, but sure as hell hope that I don't get him for a driver again! I don't have nearly 6 hours to waste riding with a driver who has no clue what the most direct route is. Review would've been 5 stars without this bozo.

I get these as a result of surveys usually. I've had no trouble with their Visa gift cards to date. I wish that they could be used at more than just limited online sites though.

Coffee here is fine, but Starbucks decor is more inviting, better ambience, brighter visually. Just see how you find more people inside at Starbucks than this place.

Monster has one of the most comprehensive job search databases out there. Easy to drill down into areas of specialty, useful email alerts. I've used it a few times, getting my next employment through them.

I've looked to Newsweek in both paper and then online editions for many years. Unbiased, reliable reporting, like journalism used to be.

Since Craigslist started to charge $5 every 2 days for your services ad, and Thumbtack.com charges wildly arbitrary amounts for the same services up to $20 for just responding to an ad (not even getting the client themselves), this website is one of the last legitimate, oft-used, FREE, and widely distributed classified ad sites in N. America. The only downside is that if you need to advertise in multiple cities, then you're supposed to wait 2 days before submitting another one. Otherwise they'll go in and delete you ads. But if you can work within their rules, then they give you metrics on how many people have viewed your ad, which is something that the other two above don't have.

Stayed at the Hilton Harbor Island in San Diego recently. Nice clean hotel. I got a real good deal at Hotwire for it. Good service. Only complaint is that parking is $25/night! That's awfully steep for even San Diego, and it is just plain generic open parking.

Bayclubhotel.com

Bayclubhotel

I've stayed here several times. The rooms are clean and I've not had any problems. The rates, because it's San Diego, are going to be expensive for any hotel, decent or dump, but having said that, the value vs quality is acceptable here. Restaurant has always been good. Parking is lower than similar hotels, at $10/night so I can't complain too much. I'd stay here again.

Steak n Shake is generally throughout the midwest, and where I discovered them. But now they have some in the Southwest. All are equal in quality and service. The food is good and nicely priced, great shakes too.

There are a lot of dim sum places in town but Orchid Garden has great food at the best prices. Clean, nicely decorated, nothing cheesy, food is always hot and tasty, servers come with their steam tables often enough, good fast service.
