Back in action

I am back in action after my blog was locked for 4 years


For all you people that want to get a good deal on all those high fashion items well look no further. If you are like me you never know where to look for the best sample sales where here you go www.hoozdooz.com I happen to stumble upon this site when I was looking for cheap Xmas gifts and I ended up at the G3 sample sale and got my whole family taken care in one stop. I don’t know to much about any other parts of the site but it seems that they have fashion job listings and so on. But for sample sales this will be my one stop shop.

Zap Bang Done

Zap Bang Done

Over Priced, Bad customer service, and very slow to finish the job.

For those of you who are looking for a web programmer ir if you are stuck on JOOMLA then Zap bang done seems like a good idea. Zap Bang Done will handle all your joomla needs. I have used them for Joomla Jobs. One Jobs was to have them build a Template from a photoshop layout the price tag for this was 1900.00 . Next I had them design some Mods for the site – again 1100.00  Both jobs took them for ever to do.

I wanted try Zap Bang Done becasue I see there banners all over the joomla site. Right off the bat this is a very good Idea But way to over priced I mean way to over priced. If you just take a little time there is a job posting area on the Joomla Fourm. This are has worked out great for me. I had another template built from just a joomla poasting on the joomla site and it cost me 600.00 and it was done fast and amazing. Great idea guys but run very poorly

Here is my story of HSBC in NYC. I was off to go on a week end hiking trip to Boulder CO when my wallet was stolen in the airport in NYC. So I called HSBC to cancel my cards then I asked them what they could do tohelp me out. Remember I only have 40.00 in my pocket. The Lady on the phone from HSBC told me no problem we can send you a new card to your hotel. Now and I both are thinking great I have no worries. WORNG!!!!! then she told that it was going to take 5 to 8 days to get there. Great I will be home by then and I will have no need for it. I asked her ” Is there any other way” She told me no I am very sorry. So HSBC Stranded me on a hiking trip in Boulder with no money. After talking with 5 other HSBC people they all said that they were very sorry but that could not help me out. When I got back from the trip I stopped into my HSBC branch and I was fronted by a Branch Rep James J Otoole. When I told him my story he had every excuse why HSBC did what they did. Then told me if you don’t like our bank there are many others in NYC that I can bank at.

So my story here is Don’t bank with HSBC they can careless about its customers.
