Black Friday begs the question of why? What is the purpose? All year long I’ll shop at a store only to be denied a “special” bargain since I refuse to stand in line at 5AM and make a mad dash into a store. I can make fool enough of myself on this blog without doing that on this mystical shopping day.
One of the little things to look for on Black Friday is to check out the items online since sometimes those specials are available before the store opens. I got a Tom Tom that way. Got it Thursday night for the “special” price. Free shipping.
Looks like Plowgate has really stepped up now that Middleboro’s own version of Billy Fallon has stepped forward with a select group of taxpayers - even if some are from Oak Point (where every day is a tax free holiday). Now a smart lawyer and a smart judge would want to examine this issue in April. Maybe they’ll at least get a smart judge.
Why do entitlements seem to come to those who should be least entitled? I just get tired of paying for multi-generational layabouts. So many needy get lumped into the same lock box by what appears to me an every growing group of scam artists that use government programs to the detriment of others.
Steve Pagliuga has spent 17K on phone messages and I think 16K of it has been to my house.
Global warming is in the news and all because it looks like many researchers have pulled a Clark and fudged data. To put some icing on top they also discussed ways of dissing and intimidating critics. Sounds familiar.
I really don’t find much in the way of bargains at the big box stores. Usually we shop sales and do coupons and have found that to more match even the large volume purchases at the box stores. The few items I will but I take advantage of when they give me a yearly sixty day free pass. I just can’t see paying to shop.
Blogger Shark (BS) seems to be very confused on his site. Open…closed…opened. There are meds that can help. I’m sure Suo could put on his SCUBA gear and help with the meds since the shark is toothless and not a threat except to LL. Have a copy of Clark The Toothless Shark to donate to the library. Some questions still exist as to the identity of BS but I like it as a mystery. Why have everyone know so you can be a public humiliation like JP?
Speaking of the BS, Suo has made an offer in the comment section that is difficult to ignore. Could be an easy $200 for a local charity.
Charities. Amazing what some of the CEO’s pull in. Can be millions. There are several sites that give a breakdown of how much actually goes to those for whom the charity is designed to help. I tend to keep almost all of it very local.
Watching President WOW interact with his daughters makes me smile.
I see little things popping up in the news occasionally on health care reform that make me nervous. I see the excessive taxes on upper incomes and wonder what will that threshold eventual be lowered to? Probably to zero. Now I read of surtaxes on so called blue plate plans.
For BB and his running. When you buy a jog suit make sure it has a zippered pocket so we don’t have to search for your lost trinkets through the woods. Second bit of advice is when Bogo says take the trail on the left since it will be dry always take the trail on the RIGHT.
When an individual represents an organization one would hope they would research their data before posting it. Mistakes happen and I have had to correct information or delete when I discovered - or others did - that said information was incorrect. Simple to do and actually adds some legitimacy. Shame it is a lesson that is totally lost on some.
Middleboro Schools has a great online system for substitute teaching scheduling. A third party provider and it is excellent. Maybe the town web site will follow?
