About Me

I was 15, a young buck on my own plantation about 37 million years ago. Things were different back than. Our star went supernova in what you call M37, our home Snowball was similar to your own.

How I Can Help

I can only help you with 3 questions 1. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll tootsie pop. 2. Why knowing what we know and still eat a hotdog. 3. How to spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Interests

Cream colored ponies, crisp apple strudels, door bells, sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles

I know a lot of people will disagree with me on this but this is the way I feel....

If you buy from websites based in China a good rule of thumb is don't buy technology (phones, computers, cars etc...) and food (baby food, formula etc...).
If you buy anything at all...maybe cheap plastic things like cd holders and make sure they aren't priced over $5. The quality of products here are like the stuff found in claw machines in children's arcades. If you are a mannequin and in need of that shiny $5 gold watch to go with that shirt than be experimental and go for it.

PS. Don't order more than one item at a time that way your never out more than $5.
Here is a small translation chart for this website...

When they say = it really means this....
minutes = hours
hours = days
days = weeks/months
fast shipping = faster if you walk/swim to China
free = how much money do you have?
reliable = it will break soon if not already
customer service = fake person/A.I. overdosed on drugs simulated chat box
We will fix it = add more problems
We will reship the item to you = Unfortunately it went down with the Titanic
want you to be happy/satisfied = please buy more junk from us
100% money back guarantee = 100% guarantee you won't get your money back
nice picture of product = nice picture of someone else's product
Thanks for your feedback = it's going into the trash
We apologize for all inconvenience = send more money
Sorry to hear that = send more money
Best regards = thanks for your hard earned cash
Please inform us your order number = so we can lose or delete it
I can't find your order details = here it is, oops down the shredder
I can check it for you = I need to go clubbing all night long!
please let us know = don't bother us
feel free to contact us = don't bother us
if you have any questions or comments = don't bother us
we will call or contact you = not in your lifetime
Please don't worry = you better worry
There is policy to protect the customer = Our policy is to steal lots of $$$
We will guarantee your rights and interests = I guarantee you have no rights here

I hope you found this helpful.

Looks like a discount website from Newegg.com . Bought a stop sign thing for the garage. I was very cautious because of the low price , its brand new and no one else had reviewed it here beforehand. Felt a little bit better after I was able to log in with my Newegg account and it had all my personal information so it was a legit site from Newegg. I got free shipping and no tax here in N.V. They gave me order confirmation, tracking and when it was shipped via e-mail.

You just bought a bag of high quality vanilla beans, now what? This is a great site on how to make high quality vanilla bean extract, paste and sugar. Remember if you want to make it a Christmas gift it takes 3 to 6 months for the full flavor of extract to form which means you need to start soon. Also don't go cheap on the Vodka buy Smirnoff or better. I followed this recipe to the letter and was very pleased! Amazon.com using a vendor called Vanilla Products USA had great results from the beans.

They are only interested in making a buck from you. There is no way to get a free credit report and getting information without paying is impossible. I tried to dispute one item that Equifax had that TU and EXP did not show and it kicked me off the server. I tried again and got locked out from the "dispute" page saying that the information I provided in the security questions did not match. I know what I was paying for my mortgage and car loan not Equifax apparently. Once it locks you out there is no way to get back in and all it says is to fax my dispute with a copy of my driver license. It is probably sitting on the floor in their basement under countless of other disputes that other people are forced to fax in. Its been a month and I have not heard anything!! There is a phone number on the website to call but it says you must provide the 10 digit dispute number which it won't give you because you need to get their credit check plan for $17 or premier plan for $20. I think that Equifax planted this information on my report because it is only listed under medical with no information as to who is claiming this debt. I did manage to track down the address and phone number to this claim for $239 and they have the wrong information about me and my son. This company Escallate out of Canton, Ohio said it was from Saint Rose Hospital which I did go to. So I gave them the benefit of the doubt and called the hospital about past unpaid medical bills which they could not find any and if they did it would of been $25 for my deductible since I carry blue cross. I asked the hospital if I didn't pay and it went to collections would they use this company Escallate and they said they only use Grant and Weber. So I called Grant and Weber which is located next to the hospital and they have no record of me and I found out they do not sell unpaid debt to anyone else.

There seems to be little recourse and I feel helpless about this. You can look up Equifax on consumer reports and see about similar issues people have.

Only place I could find Superior Brand Coffee. Shipping was free but you got to buy at least $60 worth. Since I was buying in bulk anyway it was a non-issue. These come in 4 or 10-12 cup foiled packets that you see in hotels, restaurants and gas stations. Superior brand coffee was sold by Sara Lee to Farmer Brothers. It was difficult to get directly from Farmer Bros so thanks coffee house express. It was 8 days before I received my order but FedEx tracking said the snow on the east coast has affected shipping.

Easy to put in order for pizza. Easy to use coupon codes and you can pay here or pay when you pick up. The pizza is great and it gives you the time the pizza will be ready. Usually in about 10 minutes or you can put in the date and time you want the pizzas to be ready.

I was looking to make some Valentine editing for my photos. I came across this recommendation from Bob J. Its not Photoshop but it has an amazing amount of the most important tools and is very easy to use. It all works so amazingly well that I was waiting for the catch where it asks me for a credit card number but it doesn't. I was able to edit and save photos on my hard disk. Its Express and Advanced versions are all just a click away. The best part is that it is free and all works within your browser so there is no downloading. This baby is a keeper!!

Their mission here is to spread meaningful content far and wide.

They do this by showing very interesting videos of interesting points such as
these......

* Too Many Women Don't Have Fun In Bed. Maybe It's Because Their Partners Never Took This Class?
* Ever Hear About The Lady Who Spilled Coffee On Herself At McDonald's, Then Sued For Millions?
* A French Film Showing Men What Being A Woman Feels Like Kinda Nails It
* A Dude Trying To Ban Abortions Is Asked A Question He Never Considered. It's So Obvious It Hurts.

I bought some large stainless pans and a manual turn yourself popcorn thing here. All arrived in about a week without any broken glass lids. Excellent quality here is why I gave 5stars. Nice selection of cooking stuff. No overcharges on the credit card, and they emailed me a coupon for free shipping on my next order.

I've always been a bit curious about roasting my own coffee beans. I finally decided to take the plunge last week. This site assisted me greatly and educated me on ordering and roasting my own beans. It has a learning center tab that educates you on what, when, where and why's on green coffee beans.
Of course they make money on selling raw coffee beans and equipment for roasting and brewing. There is plenty of free information to be learned here too. I must say I really just got into it to see for myself if it could be done and if it really makes a superior cup of coffee. I ordered 4 different beans....

1 Ecuador Palanda APECAP Organic Fair Trade EAPECAP
1 Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Negele Gorbitu Organic Fair Trade EY1
1 Flores Bajawa Ngura Organic FBN
1 Sumatra Mandheling Bies Utama GR1 TP OFT SM

I also tried ordering some Costa Rican and Hawaiian but they were out of stock. I got the beans in 3 days (priority mail). No errors on the credit card charges. I also got a hand written thank you letter from them. WOW that's rare and it made me feel all warm inside like the time I ate a half pound bag of peanut m&m's. They have coffee from all over the world and they only sell Arabica beans which is what I expected. Not a Busta bean in sight!!

Read on to see my personal fling with roasting....

They included a free sample bag of coffee that I didn't order which I used first for practice. It was a medium-dark roast type of bean so I roasted it for about 11 to 12 minutes and it came out like Peet's dark roast coffee to me. Next I tried the Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Negele Gorbitu which I did in 6 minutes which was not long enough and tasted way to fruity and less like coffee. I ended up throwing it in the trash. I tried again for 9 minutes and it came out really smooth. They recommended waiting a day after roasting so I did. I have not tried the other beans yet. After this experience I can really appreciate my cup of Joe after roasting, chaffing, grinding and brewing my own beans. All I can say now is been there done that. I will come back to this review in a month or so when I perfect my coffee roasting temps and times. I will edit it and tell you what I think is the perfect cup.

I know a lot of people will disagree with me on this but this is the way I feel....

If you buy from websites based in China, Nigeria, Congo, Namibia, Iran, Syria, etc etc... a good rule of thumb is don't buy technology (phones, computers, cars etc...) and food (baby food, formula etc...).
If you buy anything at all...buy cheap plastic things like cd holders and make sure they aren't priced over $5. This goes for palm reading too.
Also when you order from places like this don't give them a credit card number otherwise you will be overcharged. Use something safer like a disposable credit card that only has $5 of credit.

PS. Don't order more than one item at a time that way your never out more than $5.

One thing I like about this site is the vast amount of products available. They sell everything. I was able to order some sheet music from a specific author and BAM!. I should order more stuff from here more often. The price was retail price though but that's because its sheet music and very hard to find locally. Supply and demand at work. I was looking at burr grinders for a new coffee machine and found some good prices so I might order one of those. I can't believe I waited so long to order from this site. I guess I am just a bit weary of new places to shop.

I love this site because it gives me access to high quality commercial equipment at reasonable costs. I wanted to get a coffee maker that had no after taste from plastic, like the nice ones I see at the Circle K. I was looking for a coffee maker that was stainless steel inside and out and found it here. I got tired of buying mediocre coffee brewers every year. I ordered a Zojirushi Thermal Carafe, Curtis Pourover Coffee Brewer and filters. It did not cost me much more than what a high quality keurig system would cost. Shipping took a little longer for the Curtis Pourover Coffee Brewer because they noted this item is not stocked in their warehouse and ships from the manufacturer directly. Luckily I noticed the disclaimer on the details page so I knew it would take longer. Easy to pay and check out and fast shipping via fedex IF item is stocked in their warehouse. Otherwise takes longer.
I also was considering a commercial microwave from here but they do not have turntables in them, weird? I decided to refrain on that idea, but the meat grinder section looks interesting. Oh well, I guess I got a lot of browsing to do.

P.S. I noticed on the filter page they don't necessarily show the same filter pictured, matter of fact they used the same picture on almost every filter type. Make sure you read the fine print or google the item model number to get accurate picture of what you are buying!! The picture of the brewer and carafe was accurate.

If you feel there is something wrong or unusual with your body and you feel embarrassed by it, check this site out. They have lots of pictures, videos and informative data on "embarrassing things". No stone is left unturned on this site so the pictures and videos are very graphic. NOT FOR KIDS TO SEE!! There are full videos on the corrective operations themselves. There are several apps for your phone to help monitor your health. You can type in your conditions on your illness and it will search all related illnesses. Also search by body part and click on the avatars to show vicinity. Also search by symptoms and it gives a huge list to choose from alphabetically. Great free site with no advertisements. Also you don't have to sign up and in or give out your e-mail etc etc...

Burger King offers some very interesting prospects for a fast food website. They offer delivery in certain areas of certain states VA, MD, FL, NY, TX, CA, CO, NV and IL. I live in NV but just outside of the deliverable area. They have a cool offer if you use their delivery service. They have a loyalty program in which you can get your Whopper, TenderGrill, Tendercrisp, Premium fish or Original Chicken sandwich on every fourth order for free. This site is useful if you are away from home in a hotel or student dorm. Couldn't find a calorie counter on the site.

Can't expect much from a fast food website. I was checking for e-coupons but they didn't have any. They have your menu's, calorie counter, store locator and mobile app. Better to just go eat there but watch out for the calories on a large frosty shake (caramel 990) (chocolate 870) (strawberry 780). yeewow!
