The New Snow Leopard

28 08 2009

I’m really excited that my MacBook Pro will be getting an OS upgrade. Snow Leopard is on it’s way! As I was trying to order the $29 upgrade from the Apple store, I saw the tagline for the box set that has the OS, iLife ’09 and iWork ’09 for $169. So I thought that I would go ahead and upgrade it all. Makes sense right? Spend $169 now or spend close to $500 later. Hmmmm. In this economy, let me think about this for a minute.

So as I was trying to order the Box set, I checked out MacMall on pricing. Good thing I did. I just got the Box set for $149 plus $3 shipping. Better than the Apple store. Whoo Hoo! Apple would have cost me $169 + $12 in tax (free shipping). Hmmmm. Let me think about that again.

Shop around folks. You never know what deals you’ll find, especially with this economy. Every penny saved can add up quick!

I had a rather interesting day today, as I discovered a ‘new’ photo supply store in Tampa.  Okay, so they’ve been around for more than 30 years, but new to me.  Their website isn’t anything exciting, just a few basic pages, but the customer service INSIDE the store couldn’t be beat!  Friendly people that had no problems with me just asking questions.  Very informative people that really know their stuff.  Unlike a certain big box store that’s in Countryside Mall that I go to when I need the occasional lens wiping cloth…..  (Do I really need to say who it is?)

Great selection there, friendly people, and if you don’t see it, they can order it.  And the prices are pretty reasonable.  I’m sure you could find the same products online for cheaper, but you definitely won’t get the service that goes with it!

Go check them out for yourself!   1020 West Busch Blvd. Tampa, FL 33612  813-935-9339

Okay, so I had some fun playing around today.  Here are some star patterns that you can have for free.  I know this sounds stupid, but don’t try to claim them as yours.  Give credit where it’s due…

If you want it, drop me a line.  I’ll be happy to email it to you until I figure out this whole download thing.  The web can be such a tricky thing…

A woman’s husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day.

One day, when he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer.

As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, ‘You know what? ‘You have been with me all through the bad times.

When I got fired, you were there to support me.

When my business failed, you were there.

When I got shot by that robber, you were by my side.

When we lost the house, you stayed right there.

When my health started failing, you were still by my side… You know what?’

‘What dear?’ she gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth.

‘I think you’re bad luck… get the hell away from me.’
