This is a sun RISE Folks – I don’t get to see many of those.
OK FINE ! I did realize that I had gotten up far too early that day and did end up going back to bed for another while.
Now about AMAZON…..
I mean Amazon.com NOT Amazon.ca. I wondered why I only shop on Amazon when I’m in the States.
Is it because when I’m in Canada I don’t think of it ?
Or maybe because the .ca website just doesn’t have the great selection that the .com site has ?
Or maybe it is because the prices are different ??
WELL, here is the answer to the last question.
A set of Solar Rope Lights (100) on Amazon.com sells for $31.06…..
And yet the IDENTICAL set on Amazon.ca sells for $80.60 !!!
Make no wonder Canadians try and make their purchases once across the Border !!
NOTE: If you’re gonna order anything on Amazon why not go through BARBARA'S BLOG and click on the link from there. That way she gets a few pennies from the sale to go towards her gas expense.
Once I arrived in Quartzsite – and got an address for mailing – I ordered a few things:
First up was another one of those Motion Sensor Lights. I bought one here last year at Discount Solar (for the front door) for $60.00 plus tax. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this light.
I has an LED Bulb included (and we all know how expensive they are !!) so no drain on your batteries; you don’t have to worry about if you’ve turned the light on or off; and (for me) it’s a MAJOR security feature.
With shipping included it came to $52.50 !!! This was the price tag right on the box. So I saved $10.00+ by going through Amazon.
I installed it yesterday – with some help from a Neighbour. I took a gazillion pictures as I was removing the old one to ensure I knew what wires went where. I was at it for HOURS !!
But it was this little doo-jigger that I had trouble with. I simply could not get the new wire in and crimped. I guess my hands just don’t work that way. Now if JIM or TERRY were here I know they would have made quick work out of this little job.
But thanks to a Neighbour it is now wired and I was able to finish the installation – which included having to drill two new holes in the rig.
All I have to do now is put some caulking around it.
I like the black one much better on my rig than the white one…
The light over the front door….
I also ordered a bottle of this cleaner for the bike’s windshield. Even WITH shipping it was cheaper than what I pay for it at the HD dealer.
Also needed a new cover for the bike. In the big wind storm we had while I was in Overton, NV, my old (very cheap) cover got destroyed. This one is a much better quality.
And it even comes with hooks that you can attach under the bike so the cover doesn’t blow off. I won’t be bothering with that though.
AND it even came with a cable and lock !! No, I won’t be bothering with that either. But I’m thinking this cable and lock will come in handy for something else.
Those of you that know me well know that I have a BIG PHOBIA !! And NO we are not talking about it !! So if there’s anything I can do or buy to deter UNWANTED GUESTS into my rig I’ll be doing and buying it !!
BARBARA told me about this Product – I ordered SEVERAL boxes !!
Noticed solar rope lights UNDER JEAN & SKIP'S rig and asked about it. They told me it was another deterrent for ‘Henry’s’ so I ordered TWO sets !!
And that is the end of my Amazon shopping. My Credit Card is starting to melt !!! LOL
