Good City Fireworks Show Last Night

There was a pretty good fireworks show downtown last night. The Fourth of July is always a big deal around here – rednecks just love the chance to buy fireworks from the tent stands that pop up all over the state the last two weeks of June. I know guys who save up all year just waiting for the chance to buy fireworks and stock up.

The city always has a free concert on the riverbank for several hours with the Nashville Symphony and a handful of B Circuit singers to entertain the crowd that gathers for the free fireworks show at dark. It’s an expensive treat for the city to be spending money on in this bad economy, but it is a tradition and we southerners are pretty big on keeping our traditions going every year.

Old VCR Tapes

by on Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Going through the garage I found an old box filled with VCR tapes. You know, those huge plastic rectangles containing spools of magnetic tape? The ones that used to cost $39 and $49 for the newest releases back in the 1980’s?

It was kind of cool to look at all those old movie titles and remembering why I liked them enough to spend that kind of money on them. and now they are not even worth $2 at the Goodwill or Used DVD stores. Not exactly a good investment in those tapes, was it?

Check the Statements

Most of the time I get my bank notice that my statement is ready for review and I just dlete the notice and don’t worry about. I manage my money closely and know what I put in thee ans what I am taking out. Therefore, I should know pretty close to the balance without going througha lot of drama once a month to balance the account.

For some reason I took a longer look at last month’s statement and damn, there is a $6 charge against that account by the bank. I’m thinking, WTF?, and called the bank. They said they are now charging $6 a month for me keeping a checking account at this bank. There’s no way to get rid of that charge except to change banks and find someone who will give me an account for free. So, now I’m on the hunt. I’ll be damned if I’m paying this bank $6 every month just for the privilege of them holding my money for me.

In the day to day operation of our small delivery business we sure do go through a lot of printer ink. We are always looking for cheap ink to keep our printers going. We have found the perfect place to purchase our ink from when we need a new ink cartridge we simply go to Ink Grabber and in an instant our ink cartridges are on there way to us no muss no fuss. This is the perfect way to purchase ink, from the comfort of our home office, it can not be beat. No more trips to the office supply store and no standing in line it can not get any better than this for shopping for ink cartridges.

Easy stock trades

by on Sunday, August 16th, 2009

In the dark ages I used to have to call my stock broker to make a trade or to buy some stock, and of course he got his cut first, someone had to pay for his new car. The best thing I have found in the last few years is online trading and First Trade is the very best online broker that I have found, they let me trade from home or work and do not charge me like the old stock brokers did, that is the part that I like the very best. Low cost and very easy to use, is a winner in my books. Stock trading is fun again thanks to First Trade.

Now that the stock market is on the rebound and I am back in the blck I am very willing to start stock trading again and I look forward to using First Trade to help me make more money and most of all I think that dabbling in the stock market is fun and a great way to make a little extra money too.

First Trade is a great online company that allows you to trade stocks, Mutual Funds, ETFs and Fixed Incomes at very competitive prices and that is what I am looking for in an online trading partner, check them out and see if they have what you are looking for in an online trading partner.
