FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

CSN Stores Discovered

One of the most interesting aspects of the Internet are the things you stumble across or who stumbles across you. CSN Stores found this blog and approached me about doing a review. No specific item, just go to their 200 stores and look around until I saw something I wanted to review. No pressure to write a positive review, just write a review. Talk about letting a kid loose in a candy store, a really, really big candy store.

I initially got hung up in the lights store. I found solar powered street addresses which I really like for making sure first responders can find your address. I also liked the solar powered spotlights. One which I hadn’t seen and called my name was the solar powered shed light. That would have come in handy the night the power went out and I groped my way back to my shed to find my generator. Flashlights are great but sometimes you need both hands for a task, the solar shed light looked pretty darn cool.
I spent the whole darn day looking over the CSN site. Believe it or not it took quite awhile to decide what to review. There were so many things from which to choose. Considering my eclectic interests, you can see the problem. (I like eclectic better than scatterbrain, it seems so much more professional.)

I finally decided to stick to things I am most familiar with and that, of course, are tech items. Considering the abysmal weather we have had that has provide us with myriad power outages, I decided on power protection. I’ve requested a UPS (battery backup/uninterruptible power supply). I am a firm believer in power protection so this seems like the best choice for a near future review.

I will test it and review it here.

BTW I am impressed with an operation that is looking for independent opinions on their service and products. It goes with out saying that I am impressed with their astute choice of bloggers to write a product review. LOL Seriously though I like the fact they are proactive and courageous enough to say pick anything (within a price range) and review it. That shows a confidence in both their product line and their service. I look forward to reviewing the product.

This was not a paid blog.
