Friday

Rickie Traeger: Black Friday……… Bring Back Z-Nation! Project Blue Book :)




I hope everyone is having a safe and wonderful weekend! 

So what was your thoughts on your Black Friday experience?

Mine:  Retailers should be ashamed of themselves!   I saw many places doing the following tactics. I been keeping my eyes on several items and planned on buying them for Black Friday.  So I know what the prices have been for some time now.

Well………  I waited until black Friday to get a “deal” on them.

The retailers RAISED THE PRICES UP A LOT on the items.

Then saying heres the Black Friday “deal”  and that “deal” was either AT or ABOVE the prices the items I have been watching, prices BEFORE Black Friday.

Example: Canon Powershot SX530  Normally goes for around $200-$230.  Walmart price before Black Friday was $245.   For Black Friday they said the retail price was $479, but the Black Friday “deal” was $250.  So much for that deal………  And a day after Black Friday it is $249.

But I saw this happening by several retailers on several items.  SMFH

I did see a few deals on some items, so to be fair I did see a few deals.  But it sure is nothing like it used to be awhile back ago.  When you really got the deals on alot of items, and you actually got a good deal on the items. Nothing like that these days.  When I worked in retail in the past, I learned some of their marketing tactics.  And one of them was to say you have a deal on this item. And make it appear there are several of them in stock. But they ONLY PUT 1 IN STOCK.  So they can draw you there to the store on that deal. And when you get there it has been since long gone because only 1 was in stock, and they can legally say they had that deal on the item, all while drawing you to their store.

I lost a lot of respect for retailers because of their marketing tactics. Reminds me alot like politicians. They lie to you, to get what benefits them…

Time to change themes here now, LOL.   I am super excited!  Project Blue Book is coming back on TV!  I am like really excited. I love that show.  Speaking of tv shows though, Walking Dead is now off until February. I kinda hate this mid season finale crap. But in another way, it kinda nice to draw the season out some through out the year.  I wish Z-Nation was back on tv!  I miss that show.  It did a lot of stuff walking dead wouldn’t of said or do. Bring back Z-Nation!

 








Rickie Traeger: Good afternoon everybody I hope everybody is enjoying their Friday afternoon




Good afternoon everybody I hope everybody is enjoying their Friday afternoon.

I’ve been going through and updating the Rockford Scanner Pages on the website. I updated the FOIA pages, the about me, and a few others. I still need to go through and update several more so that is my plans for today. Hoping to make it more professional looking and easier to access is my overall goal. So be sure to check those out!

I did not realize one of my favorite shows called supernatural was back on TV. It started back in October and this is the very last season of it. So as I’ve been updating the website I’ve been trying to catch up on supernatural. Hard to believe the show was about to and after the season. And again hard to believe I was unaware that it started up already, LOL. I am on the second episode and as usual it is an amazing show. Yes, I am biased because I love the show, LOL.

I was thinking about adding a few RSS feeds on the side of this website and also on the Rockford scanner website as well. But if I do so it slows the loading time down some so I am currently on the fence on doing so. I have a lot planned out for the future of the websites. But I’m not ggoing to say exactly what right now. I have to focus on one task at a time. In my main focus right now is updating the current content that is on the websites before adding any new content. Now that being said I have added a bunch of new content. Maybe I should added this paragraph to the first paragraph above, LOL.

Jimmy is doing His weekly Friday night Fun net on the 195 repeater at 8 PM tonight. So be sure to check in If you have your ham radio license or at least listen On the scanner.

I’m going to pop up here for now like I said currently updating the websites and watching supernatural. I hope everybody has a warm and safe Friday!
