Paid Advertisement: Sherrill Tree Equipment – Not just for the pros anymore.

This is a paid advertisement for Sherrill Tree Equipment.

Yeah, I’m big time now.

Way back when, in a state far far away, Jersey to be specific, me and two of my closest friends decided to do my mom a favor and cut down three tall pine trees she wanted removed from the back yard. It was going to be pricey to get a pro to do it. So we said, “Well, can’t be that hard.” Turns out it wasn’t. Trees will generally fall to the ground once you start cutting into the base. The issue quickly became where were they going to hit, how much damage would they do, and how maimed and mangled would we get in the process.

You don’t have to live with that uncertainty anymore. Sherrill Tree has been in operation for 50 years. While they cater to the pros of the tree cutting business, they now provide a great website for us civilian types. They have it all, from instruction, to safety equipment, to the essential tools needed to take down a tree. For me and my buddies, the safety equipment would have been nice, as well as a little instruction on how to direct a tree away from the house.

I think the cooler feature about Sherrill Tree is how they also equip other types of tree enthusiasts. It’s well known we at Frank’s Place digs smarts. Well Sherrill Tree deals with tree care professionals but also connects quite frequently with other tree-climbing enthusiasts including educators, scientists and fun climbers.

That’s just smart right there.

Paid Advertisement: Deal Dash – It’s the real deal.

Have you ever seen friends on your facebook page show up with a picture like this and the words, “so and so likes…” next to it?

Deal Dash

I have, and now I finally know what it’s all about. It’s from a web site called DealDash.

Deal Dash is a penny auction site, where apparently you must have the patience of a mongoose ready to strike a cobra. It’s a lot like that other site that starts with e and ends with Bay, except it’s more exciting, all products are new, and shipping is free and immediate, not dependent on seller.

Gotta be honest, I had my doubts but I’ve been checking the site out for the last two days, reading the reviews, etc… It’s legit folks. Those deals they have on their home page are real. What I found in the reviews is patience is the key if you want to land those really incredible deals. So time will be as big an investment as your pennies. And it is truly a penny auction. Each bid is a penny at a time. The bids always start at 0.00 American dollars and each bid pushes the price up one penny at a time.

The site has a frequently asked questions tab for some good help before getting started and according to the reviews the support people may be the friendliest on the internet.

So if you have the time and the pennies and like the excitement of winning stuff, take a run at DealDash.

… and all you people smart enough, or should I say crazy enough, to still be working on your own cars. Have I got a deal for you. Well, not me, but Vast Auto Parts does. Vast Auto is a web based car parts store in Los Angeles. The site is amazingly user friendly. In my experience, which is not vast, (see what I did there – jokes are free, car parts aren’t), most car parts web sites are not easy to navigate for the casual or weekend car fixer upper type person.

Vast Auto, however, is very easy to use, plus they have live chat if you need immediate help. In Addition to that, you get free ground shipping if you live in the lower 48. That’s a one stop shop experience for all things auto my friend.

Need auto parts…come to Vast. It’s a blast.
