Walmart Product Replacement Plan - Sucks! Don't waste your time and money!

Bought a vacuum on, and purchase the 2 year Product Replacement Plan.  Few months down the line, the vacuum stops working. and I recall that I purchase a replacement plan.  Well I'm on going on almost one month and still no replacement.  I've called four times and they keep getting the run around.  I purchased the vacuum online and they want me to send them a receipt through mail.  I wonder why is that.  I could just forward them my receipt through email.  I did buy this shit online.  But they claim they never received the mailed receipt and thus I don't get refund.  WTF!!

Free Shipping or Not Free Shipping,

I wanted to order a box of paper from Office Depot, because I remember how quick their service was when I use to order paper for my previous employer.  Literally the next day or two.  I'm in need of copy paper severely.  So I point my browser to, and sure enough they are having a sale on copy paper.

that's like paying $3 per real of 500 sheets and it clearly states FREE Shipping

But I got disappointed because when I tried to check out the website charges me $9.95 for shipping.  I guest I'll go to ebay and pay $33-$35 for the same box and get free shipping.  Just have to wait more than couple of days.

So, the lesson here, double check your total when shopping with 

But don't write them off the list, just contact the webmaster like I did, and hopefully they'll fix that hickup.

More $3 tops at Walmart.

Found these $3 tank tops at Walmart and grabbed them for my daughter.  Just something for her to wear around the house or so.  As new season comes in, retailers are making room for new inventory.  So that means, this is the perfect time to shop for good deals.

Kroger on tom hill sr blvd - deli review

So a friend just moved in the neighborhood and we wanted to grab lunch after getting our nails done on Tom Hill Sr. Blvd.  I suggested to go across the street to Panera Bread Restaurant but my friend wanted to show off the deli inside Kroger.  I must admit this Kroger far exceeded my expectations.  They have a soup and salad bar.  And friend's favorite is the cheese and olive section.  We ordered your typical one entry and two side dish.   To my excitement, I wasn't paying attention to the service at first.  But I did notice how we had to wait for our food for so long and how slow the server was.  Maybe she was tired and nearing her clock out.  So I dismissed that.  But what I couldn't dismissed, was the food, was serve cold and seemed like it has been seating dry for so long.  I was really disappointed when I took a bite of the so called chicken tenders, they tasted like they just left the fridge.  That's how cold the meat was.  I'm not the one to complain.  but my friend did.  

So the server, offered to please us by giving us both fresh and hot chicken tenders. But what really made my day, surprisingly good, was the free chicken salad they gave us.   I should have ordered this instead.  The chicken salad had grapes in it and it was deliciously made.  So Kroger did made up for my bad lunch experience.  But I don't think I'll eat there for lunch again, but I will definitely buy more of their chicken salad.

hot chicken fingers

So on my way out, I did grab a bag of apples for less than $5 bucks
which my daughter loves to snack on.

More $3 blouses at Walmart

I'm always looking for a good deal.  And sometimes, you don't have to go to thrift stores or second hand stores.  You can actually find better deal at your nearest Walmart.  So summer is nearing its end and fall is right around the corner.  And that means that a lot of out-of-season clothes will be mark down and it's the best time to go shopping.  Check out Walmart prices on every day clothes, $2, $3 and $5 deals.  

I call them the Martha Stewart Blouses.  The perfect casual top you can wear for gardening, or running errands.

So you know I had to grab a few of them.  At this great deal, I couldn't afford to pass up.

Yes, even this Hawaiian wanna be blouse, I did grab.

The more I visit Savannah, the more I want to stay

My second visit to Savannah.  Last time I was here, I was overwhelmed and became exhausted quickly.  This time I was a bit prepared.  I tried to cover as much as I could but I ran out of time more quickly than anticipated.  Although I had the same allotted time from my previous visit.  I did learn something about Savannah or the historic district atleast, that is "Trolleys or Street Cars are free to hop on downtown".  And that is really one of the fastest way to get to know the area.  But I prefer being on foot.
and that you could buy an all day pass and ride city bus for $3.

Technology and Crochet

I love tech gadgets.  and I love being a graphic artist and a web designer.  If someone offered me a trip back in time, I will not go without my tech gadgets, such as my laptop, tablets, ereaders, smart phones, digital camera, etc.  But lately, crocheting have been taking over much of my time.  And it has helped so much in my technology withdrawal symptoms.  Just when I thought I couldn't survive a day without my gadgets, I found that crocheting have provided me some sense of serenity and when I am crocheting, it takes me into a trans like meditation.  It allows me think and create at the same time and to do so in pace.

I often now wish that I have taken this craft much attention and seriousness in my youth.  I did learn how to crochet at a young age.  But thanks to YOUTUBE, and all of its wonderful tutorials, I learned so much in so little time.  and thanks to etsy, I am able to earn some cash with my creations.

So being computer savvy with an ancient craft goes along together.

Updates on my tomato plants

Truly my first garden and I've learned plenty and ready for next season.  I know what to do and not to do.

  1. Water your tomato plants only once per week.  and don't water them if it rained that week.
  2. Add a ring of epson salt on the base of your plants so when it rain or when you water them the magnesium will get absorb.  Your tomato plant is magnesium deficient if their leaves are yellowing or lime green.  Adding a dash of epson salt around the plant solves this problem.  Do only once per two months.
  3. Add calcium, like crushed, unpainted sheet rock to the dirt mix.  It will stop any end rot issue.
  4. give your plants some space and support.  which I failed to do so.  But next time, I will.
  5. Spank your tomatoes.  Roll a piece of newspaper and tap lightly, beginning from the stem and up.  The vibration trigger blossoming to yield more fruits.  
  6. plant flowers close to your tomato plants to attract bees.
  7. Next year I'm planting strawberries around my tomato plants container.
