  • Original Salt Water Taffy

    Posted on by Gav

    My husband and I saw this the other day when we were at Winco. I like Salt water Taffy, and since moving to OR, haven’t found a place near by that makes fresh Taffy I know there a place by the Ocean, but still not exactly close enough to go there often.. I bought a assorted package I have to say I even liked the chocolate when normally do not care for candy. The Orange I do not like but I think I have only found 2 candies with the flavor orange that I like. :) The odd thing is I do not like blueberry at all, but candy is okay.. So clearly I have some strange taste buds.. Well I have to say these taffy are yummy and i have to hide them, from myself or I might eat to much.
    I might decide to carry some on me in my car, because sometimes after my shift I am ready to eat. I should probably talk to my insurance agent and find out if I should have more insurance on my car because of my job. I have full coverage, so this is a good thing. There are many good insurance companies i am happy with state farm but than again I am not near don allred insurance of burlington nc. When we moved to Oregon we looked at other companies and found that State Farm was the best price for us.


  • Better windows I hope better electric Bill

    Posted on by Gav

    We recently got new windows in our apartment. I am happy to say that at least this management team is trying to fix some of the issues.. My apartment lost half its electricity because someone wired our apartment drunk. Okay maybe not drunk but we lost half of our power the day they put the siding back. Thankfully the guy was not electricuted that would have been horrible. I wish we’d do something about the heating during the winter time. Dad room sometimes is ice cold along with the living room unless I use the fireplace than the living room is nice and warm. I love having a fire place but maybe if management every thinks about redoing the heating they will talk to http://comfortservice1.com and see what they offer. The struggle is we have baseboard heaters so it kind of is hard to fix this and boy does it suck up a lot of electricity


  • Better than a Ap

    Posted on by Gav

    I have recently found a ap or something that supposed to be like a metronome, but I think that a sr18 would be alot better than any ap. The thing with the ap I can put on my phone or on my tablet is probably going to be easily overpowered, but a drum machine would not be that easily overpowered. To be honest when i go to a concert I would rather have live music but I do see the need for a machine to do it sometimes. Talk about a way to cut down on the cost.


  • It finally came

    Posted on by Gav

    Last night I was taking Dad out to dinner. We was more than halfway to the restaurant when my cellphone rang. Since we was walking I answered it. Ended up heading back home because they told me they would be here within the next 25 to 45 minutes so I had told them we are out let me head back home. Well, the bed was here within 10 minutes after we came home so that probably about 30 minutes to get here. They set up the bed, where helpful, and polite. The delivery guys did a nice job of setting up the bed. I told them I appreciated them bring the bed, before their delivery dispatcher told me because Dad really needed a good bed to sleep on. None of us had a good bed for sleeping. The bed looks great.
    What I do not appreciate with Sears delivery is:
    1. No communication that is effective between them and the customers. The customer should never had to call a company, to find out where their delivery is at.
    2. The I do not care attitude I got from a operator. I am the customer, if I am unhappy I might blog about it, and well it makes your company not look so good. The company that Sears uses is Delivery Solution in my area.
    3. Having to call them several times before the bed got here, and being giving the wrong information. Had I been told the bed was on a other truck and would be here sometime today, it might have prevented me from feeling more annoyed.
    What I liked about the Sears Delivery is:
    1. They set up the bed for us which is what we ordered.
    2. When I voiced a concern about the house being small, they looked before finishing the bed assembly. They listen to my concerns.
    3. The delivery people did not make a mess out of my apartment, even though they had a small space to work with.
    So now that the bed is resolved. I have decided to probably never again have Sears delivery something, unless I can carry it home, or drive it over in my car I will not buy it. Why because of how the first day of when I was supposed to have my delivery played out. Yes I might shop at sears when I need something and Sears is the better place to get it but furniture or other products that require delivery I think I will pass.


  • Still no bed from Sears

    Posted on by Gav

    First I called the delivery people, who told me that it wouldnt be for a couple day, I told them how unacceptable it was. Eventually they told me they could have it to me tomorrow but couldn’t give me a delivery time. The Oh well it on the truck still and we have to bring it back in and put it on a new truck…
    Again I was irritated why do I have to wait to find out when this bed gonna be here. (writing this while tired, been up since 5am) So, I called Sears cooperate. I told them I wanted to speak to the manager of customer relation because I was very displeased with their services. They sent me to a customer case manager, when I explained the situation and told him, “This is unacceptable, to be treated this way as a customer” I also let him know I didn’t want to shop at Sears anymore because of all the I do not care attitude, and notice on their Facebook there was a bunch of complaints all similar to mine. I had explained to the person that First I got told between 515pm and 715pm, no bed, so at 730 I called and spoke to someone with a I don’t give a rip attitude, telling me it would be around 1030pm that the bed would be here….. and ect that already been said here. I made it very clear that it was unacceptable and them calling me FIRST, to explain the situation would have prevented me from become irritated.
    The customer service manager wasn’t pleased to hear what I had went through. I explained to him, I stayed home the entire time waiting for the bed. I kept dad up to midnight because we was waiting because I was still expecting the delivery guy to come since he said he would be here. I let him now that I took away dad night out to eat last night because we was waiting for Dad’s new bed something he need today not in a couple of days. I told him that I wasted 7 hours just waiting for them to be here with the bed. Now I am being told that this wont be delivered and with out a time. The attitude of “ I don’t care, or Its not my problem.” He apologized and agreed we should not have experienced it. He listen to me.
    His resolution was to call their Delivery Solutions, and find out why and see if they could make the delivery better. I spoke with a manager at their delivery place, which I was connected to, who told me that he agreed that they had missed up and that it was unacceptable what had happened. He put a 50$ credit for me on my rewards points. Not sure if I want to get anything form Sears right now but maybe I use it for something that I want.. Shoot I still don’t want to give them my business even though Corporate was more listening. He told me that they would tried to make me one of the first people to get the delivery. I would much rather be up early in the morning at least if they run 7 hours late, Dad might actually get a good night sleep. And I am gonna try to get a few hours of sleep. I honestly don’t feel good I didn’t sleep good and three hours of sleep probably is not enough for me right now.
    I will say this I realize there are other people on their delivery routes, and that they have to meet those routes too. I honestly think when a company screws up the way Sears delivery did, they should make contact the customer not the customer contacting them. I also think that the should get the items to their customer the next day, and not tell them they have to wait anywhere from 1 to 3 days. Yes they have other people to deliver to but the customer who is like me should be taken care of in a timely manner, especailly when it something important like a bed or refrigerator. Things that a person really can not do with out.
    Dad will be 92 in August, he a WW2 vet, and has Alzhiemers and dementia so taking away his dinner because of the oh gee we dont have to meet our delivery times, is not acceptable. Yes I fed him dinner but Monday been our go out to eat so dad can have some socialization and get out of the house. This did not happen. So thanks Sears. At least today I can take Dad out for dinner…. For sure I’m not gonna plan something when Sears should be here. I am gonna try to get some sleep hopefully Dad stays a sleep till I decide to get up. I’m tired and actually feeling sick. I will be updating once we get the bed.


  • Displeased with Sears

    Posted on by Gav

    I am a bit pissed, right now. I really am irritated. I pushed dinner later in the evening, hoping to be able to take dad out for his dinner tonight.. We decided to get Dad a bed, he needed one that was more stable we bought it from Sears, our local store. The process went great up until 730 came. They told me it would be anywhere between 515 pm to 715 pm today… When i called they told me 1030 now I am being told 11 pm…
    So here my problem, it’s not that they are late. The problem is they didn’t bother to call me, to tell me we are running late. I spent most of the day preparing dad bedroom for his new bed. and well clearing some of the stuff away for the living area. Okay fine.. I can handle late what’s pissing me off is NO ONE CALLED ME. Hey we are running late, this is what happening. I would have been understanding, I get it sometimes people run behind.
    The other thing that really bugging me is that when I called the operator didn’t at all seem sympathetic to my problem. so yeah not happy right now. Dad is 92 yrs old next month and now has to be up close to probably midnight so that he can have his bed. Dad normally goes to bed at 9 to 9:30 pm.
    I am really annoyed that the operator had a I don’t care attitude, because they really running behind. Okay I get running behind, but at least act like you care a bit about your customers. I almost wonder if one of the problems sears has is how they schedule their deliveries. I have a neighbor who I was talking to today and told them I couldn’t bring them to the store because I had to wait around for Sears to deliver a bed. They told me they was waiting for sears too and was expecting them at between 3 and 5pm… Okay wait a minute! How come they got a 2 hour earlier time slot and live what 100ft away from me in the next apartment building of the same complex. Seriously something seems really wrong with that. Both of us since we was close together should be delivered to around the same time frame. So I am not sure what happened. Maybe it’s the type of things my neighbor and I was waiting for who knows.
    The sad thing is I was planning on saving money once I get a job, and getting a new Sofa bed for the living room because we need one of those sometime soon. The sofa we have isnt working that great and I was hoping to get a new one eventually now I do NOT even want to use Sears because of what a Epic fail the delivery and the end process was.
    The good thing is that the delivery guy called me and said that they had 2 more stops before me and would be here at 11pm probably.. Maybe they be here earlier and I won’t be so pissed off, but I am not going to hold my breath.


  • Natural Grocers

    Posted on by Gav

    They have open a new store near me Natural grocers. I am glad they have it open now. Its been open probably for a couple of months now at least. They have such a wide range of gluten free options, so I only have to go there to get most of what I need. It has made the last couple of months so much easier for grocery shopping, and a couple of their staff members have learned my husband and my name. This makes me feel good. The best thing is that I dont have to spend a ton of money to buy what I need.


  • Aloe Cure Juice with Pulp

    Posted on by Gav

    My husband and I decided to try Aloe cure. It supposed to help with stomach. I have to say it taste pretty good I got the one with Pomegranate. The taste is a little hard to describe, there is pulp in it so it does take a bit to get use to. The pomegranate is not overpowering it is good and seems to complement the aloe juice nicely. The nice thing is, is that the bottle fits in any of my cub holders in the car. Now if I had a ATV i would maybe need to look at honda atv parts for a cub holder.


  • Natural Grocers

    Posted on by Gav

    On Sunday my husband and I had our date night. We decided we would stop at the new grocery store near us. We didn’t know they had been open for over two weeks. They are here in Happy Valley Off of SE 82nd Street. I was shocked at all the gluten free options they had for me. Normally I have to run to several stores just to get all the products I need. I am happy to say I think I can get at least 80% of my shopping done, there are some things I will not buy there just because I can get the same things for cheaper. There is not much traffic at this store yet because they didn’t do a good job at advertising it and because the window that closest to the main street 82nd still makes the store look closed. I hope they solve this problem so they can get more traffic. They are in a large place so many items to choose from, the nice thing is if they do not carry a product or item they are more than happy to order the item you would like. This is nice because some stores are unwilling to. I found many items I could eat and the best thing was Gluten free Challah bread from Katz. I decided to give it a try because this might make things easier on Friday night when we have service, grant it I like making it too but some weeks I dont have time.

    Today I ended up going back to pick up groceries. I left with 2 bags of food for under 70$ and most of these items were gluten free. The really nice thing is they have a baking section that has several gluten free items, including angel food cake, brownies, cookies, most anything you can think of. Their fruits and veggies werent many but what they had was good. I bought spanish, Strawberries, pears and mangos. So I am surprised that my bill wasn’t really high. I also found a couple of other things which I haven’t been able to have in a while because it not carried near me. They had donuts and muffins and more than one type of bread or donuts to choose from they even had muffins. All gluten free. They had several cereals I could have gotten too. I found some Rasin corn brain too which I havent had rasin brain in a while because of my allergies.

    They have a big vitamin section and personal care section. I am just amazed.

    The staff there are all very friendly and helpful, with out being overbearing.


  • How many keyboard for that

    Posted on by Gav

    I have heard a couple of songs that I have always wonder how many additional kurzweil it require for a live performance. It sometimes clear that the artist has used multiple tracts to cover it. I know some bands have 2 keyboard players but it made since for the band. I sometimes prefer listing to simple songs with not many parts to it. I love singing and sometimes I enjoy playing keyboards but I haven’t been able to in quiet a while. I still dont have my guitar.
