I need some help growing the site folks! I want to do a series of contests to grow, so let’s start now! If we can get 250 Likes on the Facebook Page, I’ll do another $50 Visa Gift Card giveaway! Share the HLO page with your friends!
Remember in some previous videos I mentioned how bad the sidewalk situation is around here? It’s very weird, it’s the only place around like this. Now it made the news…although good luck getting anything done about it, it’s been like this for decades. This is the main road I go down and said I was almost getting clipped, and where people were parking in the street for a friggen junk sale! Bay News 9
I searched high and low for racks that would work well with my 2005 MINI Cooper S, since it has some special consideration for mounting without damage. The factory rack bolts through the roof but that’s not for me. This model looked like the winner after going through the configurations on the website, and I got a great deal on it from High Mountain Sports. It’s extremely beefy, light weight, easy to put on and off and can be adapted in seconds for any vehicle pretty much. I’m putting the supports on the glass and license plate, and using the optional large rubber dumbels for the top strap mounts. It holds both our bikes securely and I’m very happy with it so far!
I snagged another set of super cheap glasses, this time from another company Coastal.com and they just arrived – under $16 to my door complete! A couple months ago I had an eye exam to get an updated prescription and wanted to test the waters with internet ordering to save some serious cash. I’ll put the video I made for my first pair that arrived a couple weeks from eyebuydirect.com ago below too – but this pair is really great and now I have two pairs complete for under $60 lol!
So I’ve been looking forward to my bike rack for the last week and it finally arrived today. I researched brands, reviews and models and settled on the King Joe 2 because it has specific features to work with my MINI Cooper S with spoiler. Today UPS dropped off the box, the invoice has the correct part and whoever pulled the order can’t read, because it’s not the right unit. I guess ‘King’ and ‘Spare’ look the same. So after going to the store fully expecting a simple exchange and the correct item to be shipped expedited…NOPE. Target online and Target stores are NOT connected! I had to fight with a manager to even let me return the damn thing and save return shipping! They couldn’t even look up my order let alone get the right product out, and I had zero option of getting the right one overnighted. My only option was to “place a new order”. So I did. FROM ANOTHER COMPANY and I even saved $15 finding one on sale from High Mountain Sports.
Thank you to my friend Kim of http://kimberly-photography.com for sending me this kick ass (see what I did there) hotsauce! I’ll put it to good use 🙂 There’s a recipe on the side for hot beans so that’ll be a great first test to go as a side to a recipe I’m doing next week for the site!
