Best Buy or Worst Store Ever?

I have been a customer of Best Buy ever since I first heard of them back in the early 1990’s. I have purchased TV’s, home appliances, computers, car stereos, music, videos, you name it. I also use Geek Squad for servicing these products. I’m a loyal customer, but will go elsewhere if I see a better deal. But I don’t often find better deals… as of now, my relationship with Best Buy is on hold. I need a couple of items for my computer. I’m shopping elsewhere for them. I expect I’ll be shelling out $200-300. That’s money Best Buy won’t be getting as a result of this fiasco… I spend about 1K a year at Best Buy. Whether I ever spend another dime there is entirely up to them.


Advantage Ford: 2014 F150 Platinum and C-Max Energi

Ok, it’s been quite a while since I did a product review for this site. It wasn’t intentional, just something that happened. It’s even been a longer while since I reviewed the Ford F150. The last one was the 2010 I bought four years ago. I was just coming off a three year lease of a ’07 F150 and I wanted another one. I’d been having my truck serviced at Advantage Ford and liked the service department, so I decided to buy from them.


Buying My Piece O’ Desert – U Can 2

Land, it is said, is in short supply. There’s only so much of it to go around. As the demand increases, the price is sure to go up. Unlike the housing market where we have seen major fluctuations over the last 25 years, undeveloped land just seems to go up. In Los Angeles County there are only two cities that are not fully developed. What this means is that these two cities still contain areas of land that are zoned agricultural and therefore cannot be developed (aside from a single family residence). It also means that this land is considerably less expensive than “developed” areas which are zoned residential, commercial, or industrial. Further, it means that if LA County is going to continue to grow and develop, it must develop these areas.
