First Sign of Christmas 2016 - July 29

Jul
29

Hey, it's here.

For last several years (perhaps over 10 years?) the first sign of Christmas at Costco was these Christmas ribbons.   I always see them in late July.  Today, July 29th, at my Costco shopping, I expected to see those Christmas ribbons, and I there they were.

I was excited to see those ribbons  You know how much I love Christmas. To me, it's fun and exciting when I see the first sign of Christmas.  It so happens that Costco is the store that officially releases Christmas products the earliest.  This adds to my mental association between Costco and festive feeling.  When I think about Christmas, I think about Costco. My Christmas will not be the same without Costco.

We still have long Summer months left.  But, seeing these ribbons changes my internal energy.  Things wil be different now that Costco has officially hinted Christmas 2016.

We will have good time this Winter.  And, soon, 2016 will be a history.  So, now is time to show love to my friends and family before I look back with regret.

Enjoy~!!

LED Tubes at Costco - Died after 11 months

Jul
12

OMG. One of my LED Tubes died after 11 months.  It's supposed to last 45 years.  It didn't even make 1 year.  I am disappointed. 

I took it back the next day (Costco handled it no problem) - and I bought the same pair as a replacement.  I hope they last 45 years as they promise.  This was a little hassle (waste of my time), but I was glad I bought them from Costco.  Imagine if I bought them from elsewhere, or online store, etc..  then I'll have to package it and ship them back???  I avoided a major hassle because I shopped at Costco.  

Buying a defective item is something you cannot avoid. It's nobody's fault.

Below is my blog from 11 months ago - about the light tube.

 

#####

The new technology is here.  And it's available at Costco.  This is quickly becoming an old news.  But, for now, I am excited about this new technology.

You can now replace 4 feet florescent tubes with LEDs without modifying internal wiring of the fixture.  You simply replace the tubes.  They are expensive, but not by much.  I replaced 4 tubes in the kitchen ceiling, and I am happy about how they perform.  They save electricity.  They will last 45 years.  So, I wrote down the installation date on the tubes.  If they stop working after only 44 years, I will take them back for a refund.

Technical Info

  • Uses 17 Watts (instead of normal 40 Watts)
  • Instant on
  • No humming (buzzing) noise.
  • Cool white 4100k color
  • 50,000 run hours (45 years in normal use)

Below: "11-04" written by the prior home owner. 
This irritates me.  Did he mean November 2004? or April 2011 ?

Garage Sale - July 2, 2016

Jul
04

I didn't find a Michelangelo, but I hit a small jackpot today at a garage sale.

Below picture shows about 75% of what I bought from one garage sale. I also bought a buch of earings (not pictured).  I paid about $10 for everything I have on my hand . They are all sterling silver.

I am hoping to sell these from here, at my blog, not via eBay.  We'll see...

Important Reminder - Your AmEx card will stop working tomorrow

Jun
19

This is important.  I wanted to double check with some of you.

Starting tomorrow, your AmEx/Costoco card will stop working PERIOD. Don't get confused and think you can still use your AmEx/Costco card at other places outside of Costco. 

Your card will stop working completely.  According to AmEx website, you cannot even access your web account starting tomorrow (June 20, 2016).

Good luck.

Garage Sale - June 11, 2016

Jun
15

This is one of the top reasons why people enjoy garage sales.

It was past 10AM.  I was coming home from garage sales.  By 10AM, every garage sale had 100+ visitors checking out their stuff.  So, you can't expect to find anything significant.

When I was almost home, I saw my neighbor having a garage sale yet again.  I didn't buy anything from them last 2 times.  But, I stopped by anyway, because you never know...  That's the whole game, you never know.

Then I found this solid 925 (Sterling) silver earings with Turquoise (?).  I believe they are vintage.  I still need to clean them.  They were 50 Cents!  My educated guess is that I can sell them for $15-$20 (plus shipping) on eBay.  But, I'm not going to sell them on eBay.  It's too much hassle.  And I don't want to pay fees to eBay & PayPal.

I would rather sell them to my website visitor for $6.  Let me know if you want to buy them. :)   (* plus $3 shipping).

Too Much Free Time - Columbo

Jun
15

On Sunday, I watched a few episodes of Columbo (70's TV show).

One of the episodes showed a building in LA. So, I got online and looked for that building.  I am pretty sure I found the building.

Then I took a nap.  ZZzz....   Crazy good timez.  :)

From Columbo (70's)

What I found online. 40 years later.

Keep using AmEx until 19th - Start Using Citi at 20th

Jun
09

Keep using your American Express Costco card through June 19th (Sunday)
Start using your new Citi card on Monday, June 20th. 

Your Costco rewards will be carried over to your Citi card automatically (according to Costco).

If you received your new Citi card, activate/check-in your card.  You can do so by calling or getting online.  It took me about 5 minutes (or less) to check in online.

I don't know about you, but I have absolutely no reason to use American Express card anymore.  I've alway thought American Express was hoity toity.  Costco was the only reason I opened the account.

Enjoy~!!

PS. Oh, Christmas is coming to costco in 7 weeks.  :)
