Shopping

I’ve been updating my Halloween inflatables and yard blowups sites the last week or so and noticed there seems to be more new ones for 2013 than a normal season.  I know it’s too early to start thinking about Halloween but it takes me awhile to update the sites plus the smart shoppers buy their Gemmy Halloween blowups early.  The reason is because the good ones always sell out fast and normally there is a limited supply of all of the styles of airblown yard blowups.

Anyways this year there are some pretty cool Halloween inflatable blowups for the 2013 season.  Some of the products I added to my site are the new airblown neon Halloween inflatables which both Walmart and Spirit Halloween carry online.  My guess is that these airblown inflatables for the yard will most likely be the best sellers this season and will be the first to sell out.  Right now there are only a few different neon inflatables but we will add more as we get them from the merchants.  Below is an example of the neon Halloween blow ups.

You can compare prices but make sure you also consider the coupons we have on the site when doing so.  Like right now the Sprit Halloween coupon I think is for 20% off any one item in your shopping cart.  On the other hand Walmart always has free site to store shipping on their Halloween inflatable products so make sure you weigh out which one is the best deal.

A few of the other cool inflatables for Halloween are the rat in the trap and the animated Halloween stage coach.

If you’re looking for some cool airblown Gemmy Halloween archways for your yard we have a few of them too.  These are great decorations for your yard and look great if you can put them right in front of the door for the kids to go under.  Our personal favorite this season is the scary cat inflatable archway which Is below.  Just click on it to check out a few of them!

There are quite a few new Halloween blowups this season and as we get them we will add them to our site at www.halloweenblowups.com .  One thing to keep in mind is like we mentioned, the good Halloween yard decorations sell out fast.  Some of them do however come back in stock as the season gets closer but not always.  Most of the Walmart inflatables for Halloween and Christmas that that walmart carries are only available online.  The same goes for the Spirit Halloween blowups.  You can check out all of the new airblown Halloween and Christmas Inflatable Blowups for 2013 below.

Yes, just another shameless plug while we wait for the snow season for Halloween from the Golden Snowman.  Hey, it helps pay the websites bills so what can we say other than have a great day :)

I’ve been having trouble with my Keurig coffee maker for about a month now and was deciding whether to try and fix it or buy a new Keurig single cup brewer. One of the problems was that the de-scaling light was flashing which I came to find out that it meant it needed to be cleaned which was easy but do it after your done with your coffee for the day because it takes about 4 1/2 hours to clean it 😉 .  You will also find a few Keurig coffee makers to buy or purchase here.

The other problem was that it slowly started giving me less and less coffee every time I used it lately. I was finally down to only getting about a third of a cup on the highest setting. When I took the top off the reservoir I could see that the water would be sucked up through the pump and heated up but then it was just being pumped back into the water holder. Obviously the reason for me not getting a full cup of coffee.

I was hoping to not have to buy a new one because after all, the Keurig k-cup brewers aren’t the cheapest ones around. Not cheap but they are one of the best tasting coffee makers in my opinion if not the best. That plus you also have a zillion types of flavors of k cup coffee to choose from.

To make a long story short, OK, you all know me and you know I can’t make a story short but read on because I did end of fixing a couple of problems with my Keurig coffee maker that I thought would never happen and it was easy too. I mentioned on my FB page that I was having trouble with it and a friend said that he bet that he could tell me how to fix it so I gave it a try.

I had to fix the main problem first because it would have taken too long to clean it first seeing how I was only getting about a third of a cup of coffee. He showed me a video that was online about how you should clean the needle that pokes the hole in the kcup and that the water goes through. I actually tried what the video said to do a couple of weeks ago but I didn’t do it quite right. Go Figure :( The first time I took a paper clip and poked it through the hole in the needle but didn’t poke it through far enough. That and I didn’t realize that there are to holes where the water comes out of. BE CAREFUL BECAUSE THE NEEDLE IS SHARP!

Problem 1) Here is how I fixed the problem of not getting a full cup of coffee with the Keurig coffee maker – I took a paper clip and unbent it enough so I had about 2 inches that was straight. I then attempted to find the holes before I finally smartened up and went and got my reading glasses so I could actually see what the hell I was doing 😉 . I took the paper clip and slipped it into the first slot on the needle and put it in until it couldn’t go any further. Don’t be afraid to poke it in there pretty good. Then I continued to move it all around in a circular motion while also pushing the paper clip in and out for about a minute or so. After I did the best I could with the first slot in the needle I did the same with the second one. Yeah the one that I didn’t even know was there the first time I tried this.

When I was done working on the Keurig’s needle slots I hit the button as I would to make a cup of coffee without the k cup in it of course. The first time I ran the water through I didn’t get quite a full cup but I did get more than I was getting along with a ton of coffee grounds. I repeated running doing a cycle of just water and got the full cup that I was hoping for but there were still some coffee grounds in it. It was now not only giving me the amount that it should be but it was also brewing and pouring faster than it has in a long time. Conclusion was my Keurig coffee maker was fixed and working right again :) Unfortunately the de-scaling light was still flashing.

Problem 2) Here is how a video online told me how to de-scale the Keurig coffee brewer – Get yourself some white vinegar, enough to fill the reservoir where you put the water in. Empty whatever water may be in there and fill the reservoir with the white vinegar. If you have you coffee maker set to turn off power automatically after a certain amount of time you want to change that so that it will stay on at least four hours. This is important from what the video said.

Now without having any k cups in brewer hit the button to make a cup of coffee like you normally would do. Don’t forget to make sure you have a cup under there first 😉 Yeah, like that has never happened before huh 😉 Then empty the cup of vinegar and keep repeating it until it tells you that you need to add more water. STOP THOUGH! Don’t add any water yet! You need to let the coffee maker sit for 4 hours while it is still on.

Once the 4 hours are up dump any of the vinegar that is left in the water holder and fill it up with water. Run as many cycles as it takes like you were making a cup of coffee until the water is all used in the reservoir. Hopefully now you have cleaned you Keurig coffee maker good enough so that the de-scale light isn’t flashing any more :)

I for whatever reason you couldn’t fix it or are looking to buy a new Keurig coffee maker you can check out the ones we have here that are from Walmart and sold online. Just click on the one you like and you will go to that Keurig product at Wal-Mart and don’t forget that you can order it online and have it shipped for FREE to a Walmart store near you for easy pickup.

As I’m going through my house that is up for sale I came across a really nice wooden Molson Canadian beer cooler that I have had for awhile now. I was looking around online and only came across one that was Molson’s. There were a few other brands on the same cooler which I believe were made for store displays. If interested you can either get in touch with me on the contact page above or give me a ring at 315-656-9703. This is pick up only and it’s in the Minoa/Fremont area just outside of East Syracuse.

I have never used it so I can’t really tell you how it holds ice. It is built solid and it isn’t light. In other words it’s not a cooler that I would bring to the beach or to parties. It’s kind of heavy empty so I can imagine how heavy it would be with a case of Molson’s and a bag or two of ice. It is an awesome display that you would use though at your house where you don’t have to drag it around 😉

I really like it and this Molson Wooden Cooler is in really good shape but I decided to get rid of it to make more room here and to make the move easier when the house sells. Plus for some reason my Budweiser’s just don’t seem to go great with the cooler 😉

Click Here If you are looking for a nice 3 bedroom house in the East Syracuse Minoa school district you can check the house at Craigslist which also has a few pictures along with contact info.

I figured I would list it on here in case the Golden Snowball site has some Molson beer drinkers who may be interested in the collectible wooden cooler :) Asking price is $85.00 which is a good price considering the other coolers were selling for $159.00. Oh it get’s better though as always. Tell me you’re a Golden Snowball fan and I’ll drop the price to $65.00. That’s the best offer I have gotten so far and our visitors here always get bumped to the front of the line 😉 You can Click Here to Check out the Collectible Molson Wooden Beer Cooler that I listed on Craigslist. Don’t forget this is pick-up only in the Fremont/Minoa Area.

Have a Great Week All :)

If you order you personal checks through your bank you may want to try ordering them online and save. I figure while we are on downtime from the snow and right now in a heat wave I would make some shameless plugs for my shopping sites. This site you will find some good deals on both personal checks and business checks and forms that you may need for your business.

One of the check companies that we deal with has a pretty good special going on for personal checks. If you visit my check site go to the bottom of the page and you will see a link for 4checks .com. You will also see a coupon for first time buyers to their site. The coupon will save you quite a bit off of 2 boxes of personal checks. If you don’t add any extras you should get 2 boxes of checks for around $10.00 to $14.00. Unless you get free checks from your bank you should save at least 60% with this special.

Click Here for Personal Checks and Business Checks

If your looking to order business checks or forms then use the link at the top of the page. I believe that will automatically set the coupon code for you. If not the code is on my check site at the top. You should get up to 50% off your orders of business checks. So the bottom for personal checks and the top for business forms and checks and make sure you use the coupon codes. You will also find a ton of themes for your bank checks. An example is that if you type Syracuse in the search box you will come up with some cool checks that have the Syracuse Orange logo on them along with pictures of the dome and Otto 😉 These are the ones I order online through my site. Just click the link below and thanks :)

OK, yes this is one my few shameless plugs in order to sell a few 2013 calendars.  I figure before all snow breaks out I’ll get some plugs in on my shopping sites.  Hey, this site is more for fun than to make money but I still have to eat every now and then :)  In reality I should probably not be eating and on a diet but we won’t go there :(  Anyways if you’re looking for 2013 calendars we have them including the farmers almanac calendars for 2013.

We have over 4000 monthly, page a day calendar, yearly and any other calendars for 2013..  There are quite a few dog calendars and cats including puppy and kitten calendars.  Lots of landscape calendars for 2013 along with children’s, horses and pretty much any theme you can think of.  So if you need a new calendar for the new year feel free to check out the site. We also have 2013 daily planners, organizers and desk and wall calendars with snow, woo hoo ;).

It’s 2013 wall Calendars and the merchant I use has free shipping specials for a limited time.  Thanks all! Oh, and feel free to share the calendar site with your family and friends.  If I sell 100,000 calendars I get a free one.  I’m joking of course about the free one :)

Wow, It’s hard to believe that it’s that time already to set the clocks ahead again isn’t it?  Yup, come tonight before you go to bed or when you wake up tomorrow don’t forget to set the clocks ahead one hour.  Or if you’re like me it normally takes a couple of days before I get around to it.  My clock on the car radio was never changed in the fall so that one is good to go 😉  Don’t forget that the fire departments recommend that you also change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors each time you set the clocks.  I still remeber how my Mom use to hate setting the clocks ahead.  She knew she was going to be losing an hour of sleep and for what ever reason she would think about it until the clocks were set back again.

Yesterday was a pretty good snow day and night where I live, just outside of the city.  It cam down pretty good  off and on and last night the winds came through along with the snow and made it look like it was winter.  Unfortunately it doesn’t look like that’s going to last too long with warmer weather in the forecast for the next several days :(  This season is going down to the last snowflake that falls and Rochester is still looking pretty good right now.

I have a feeling that it’s going to end up kind of like last nights SU basketball game.  Syracuse was behind pretty much the whole game but started an awesome comeback.  The only problem was they came up just a little short before time ran out.  Well time is running out for Syracuse and the rest of the cities in the Golden Snowball contest and it just may be an upset when the buzzer rings come the last second of April.  Being a big SU fan though, I never give up until the buzzer rings.

Shameless Plug Time – I’ve been getting quite a few sales from my Pets products site the last few weeks since I put it up.  I’m not sure if the prices online are good or not or if it’s because there are a lot of good products like cat and dog food, dog houses, pet products for horses and so on.  Anyways if you have a pet and buy online check it out at Pets Products Online and thanks :)

Have a GREAT Weekend All 😉
