Recently one evening lost my dog, he had got loose from his collar while outside, so no collar. He wasn't gone all but 15 minutes. Had a number neighbors had seen him but searching for a couple hours was fruitless. Got online signed up to Pawboost, it was free for the basic account, what the heck right? The next morning got several texts messages and Facebook message that he'd been located. For being in a basically rural area wasn't holding out for much. The site links your information to all area shelters, Facebook, Law Enforcement, Humane societies etc... Within the first hour his information and mine had been sent to at least 35 sites! WOW! Almost better then posters. While I was on the site saw other found animals in the area. What a great way to find an owner which I had to do 8 months prior... did eventually found that owner, more luck then anything Can't say enough about this site, easy to sign up, use and keeps you informed also offering other tips. Check them out!

MSN was an OK homepage at one time. It now is total liberal BS and ads, so many popups (even with blockers) Which is ironic in a way trying to make money while slinging liberal BS. Today was checking their weather which I believe is weather channel link. Was looking for temp's showed 77 with rain as I looked out on perfectly blue skies knowing it was suppose to be warmer today. A check on other weather sites just in case of stray clouds... nothing a stroll and gander outside nothing to all horizons and the predicted warmer 88 temps. THEY can't even get the weather right! I will now use google or bing (like their pictures and news tabs on the bottom). MSN went so far left, it left my screens for good!

I've done some business with Z1 over the last few years. They have some hard to find parts for "vintage" motorcycles and some repo stuff and generic. Their online store is easy to navigate and if not in stock at least it tells you. The parts I've purchased arrived quickly with the usual notifications, which is great! This site has been great for keeping my old motorcycles running! Good company to use!

I bought online some hardwood flooring for some minor repair. The process was easy to follow and the price was actually cheaper for exact same thing then Menards or Home Depot, all of which are in my area. Notifications and updates were appreciated. Helpful employees at my local store, all in all went very well. Lately with Menards dumb mask covid policy and home depot number restrictions, Lowe's has got more of my business. I think the store experience is hit or miss like most. The online was good, not great, but good.

I've used RockAuto for a number of years and literal have ordered hundreds of different parts of all categories. I have had only had one or two parts that were defective, and replacement was just as easy as the ordering... I've had more trouble with local auto parts stores then that! Shipping times are usually a week or less without paying the extra. Maybe the only complaint or warning would be the "wholesale closeout" parts, they are closeout for a reason, just be aware you may have to return or opt for regular stock to be safe. Highly recommend these guys as long as you don't need the part immediately but even the overnight shipping option just brings price up to about local parts stores. This site has definitely saved me money over the years.

The title says it all, colorful pictures, articles are just moronic not even close to news. Weather is ok for an overview, sports a joke. Whatever happened to just reporting and not giving an opinion. I don't buy this paper any more because my bird died and don't need any cage liner. Only time I even see it is the free ones at hotels.
CNN

I try to find a balance in news. There is none here, just opinions. I don't like to be lectured, and only given opinions. The only time i even glance at CNN anymore is when I'm stuck in an airport. Think the weather channel would be more important there but CNN pay to spew their hated and arrogance. Wish FAA/airport commissions would give me the weather channel! I'm delayed for weather not politics!

Been trying for 3 weeks to return a helmet that doesn't fit. They were happy to take my money and then delay shipping by 2 weeks. Terrible company no response at all via phone (on hold for over an hour numerous days, don't bother) email is automated response. No response from a month ago. Automated response from follow up's, voicemail nada. The positive reviews must be from their employee's. They take your money and hopefully you get your part, anything else forget... lost me as a customer and i will warn everybody i can not to use them!
Update
Finally got an answer after waiting another 58 mins on hold. Took 2 minutes to resolve. Rep did send me a message here which was good. Still my rating stands, the non response by normal means is unacceptable. They need to charge upon shipping not right away. All I can say to those waiting, hang in there I guess at least one person works there.
