The most talked about shopping day of the entire year, the so-called Black Friday is always kind of crazy and in 2014 it turned out to be no different than the craziness of the years gone by. There are crazy stories about Black Friday all around the internet, some are tragic and others just puzzling. Every year we hear about all kinds of crazy things that happen on Black Friday. Some are understandable, like saving tons of money on the years must have electronic device or gadget while others are not understandable at all. Below are some of the more notable that I read about in the day or so following this years Black Friday, 2014. Topping the list of Black Friday craziness is a story about a twenty two year old Chicago, Illinois woman who was shot by an ex-boyfriend. After shooting the twenty two year old in the head, he former boyfriend then turned the gun on himself and fired. This crazy Black Friday shooting happened at the Nordstrom department store at 55 East Grand Ave. in Chicago Illinois (USA) on the first level of the store.

My third installment of “My Featured Website” is about a website called eGeek Universe (www.egeekuniverse.com). On eGeek Universe there are all kinds or articles, stories, tips and other information about electronics, mostly consumer electronics like cell phones, MP3 players, tablets, laptops and things along those lines. Instead of just providing you with information you can get on other websites or blogs, this website provides it’s site visitors with a more down to Earth way of presenting the information they share with their site visitors. I have been to thousands of websites and blogs that were covering electronics in one form or another and they all seem to be kind of “BLAH” as far as how they present their information, kind of like their target audience are robots or something. Most of the information online can be found on many different websites so I think it’s best for a site to try to provide that information in a better way. That way if their readers enjoy reading their articles, stories and posts they are more likely to come back to that website or blog and maybe even bookmark the site. Who knows, if someone enjoys a site enough they mightREAD MORE !
This is my second installment of “My Featured Website” so I thought I would talk about one of my other favorite websites, eBay.com. Now I am sure pretty much everyone has heard of eBay. They are the biggest online auction website in the world and have been around for getting close to twenty years. Many people who are looking to buy something online start at eBay.com first to check for product availability and prices for those products. On eBay you can buy just about anything that can be shipped or sent by the USPS (US Mail),UPS, Fedex and any other carrier. You can even buy things that can’t be shipped like cars, boats, etc. On eBay.com you have large and small business selling their goods as well as individuals selling as well. Here pretty much anyone can sell what they have to offer and the little guys get a chance to compete against the bigger companies for your hard earned money. Most people who know or have heard about eBay know them as an online auction website and that is what they are known for. However one thing that not everyone knows is that on eBay.com you can buyREAD MORE !

I’m starting a new page in which I will be featuring a certain website or blog few times a month. I will discuss why I think it deserves to be featured in this section, either good or bad. I will talk about my thoughts and views on the website from my personal experience and some experiences I have talked about with other people. These sites are not featured in any particular order or anything. They are just websites or blogs that I have either been using / visiting for a while and have something to share with everyone about that website or maybe just a new site I have either discovered or been told about that I think there is something to be shared, good or bad.

I have lately been having that feeling of knowing I am just getting too old. I found myself reflecting yesterday on how things were about twenty to twenty five years ago (or so) when I felt like I would be young forever and I wasn’t going to be like the older people I had seen my whole life. I then started thinking about the way life is now and they way it was back then. Boy have times changed without me realizing how fast it has happened! I have recently caught myself noticing how much more dependent on technology people are getting these days. Many people feel like they can’t leave their house without their cell phone and possibly some other electronic device or gadget. People just can’t seem to comprehend what life would be like without those precious devices. Many people feel utterly helpless if they forget their cell phone, iPod or other MP3 player or maybe their cherished tablet. I am starting to think that I am starting to feel like my parents probably felt when they were around my age. That feeling like what we grew up knowing has changed and life will never beREAD MORE !
