It has been great to see the attendance high and keeping high, even over the Easter weekend, and also to see different boats on each occasion, some of whom are new to LTSC Meets. Bucklers Hard was another good gathering, although as far as I was concerned not entirely incident free.
I naturally decided to keep somewhat to starboard going in to leave plenty of room for the turn to port, but somewhat over-did it. Tuska€™s resident professional skipper later told me that this is the fourth time something similar has happened to them in recent times whilst berthed and involving an insurance claim!
Chichester two weeks later was a much less stressful and a more pastoral affair for Selene and myself.
I did not make the Poole Meet, Selene being out of the water to have her annual anti-foul, sail-drive service, and scrub up. The recent Open Day, and otherwise, seem to have provided us with a very good new intake of members specifically interested in sailing on yachts rather than dinghies, and in a couple of instances who own nice cruising yachts. One thing that does concern me is finding ways to get those who do not own boats sailing with those of us who do, and thus into the swing of things. It is not so bad for those who are free to sail on Wednesdays and can Meander, and this does provide some sort of a way in for new members. One thing we could do, although not because of all the other meets until the autumn, would be to restart the Saturday Saunterers in something like its original form. So we should perhaps try again in the autumn, but with proper pre-announced destinations and the draw of a decent lunch.
A closely related matter is that several of those who have joined recently have sailing experience but some time ago, or on dinghies rather than yachts, and have said things like their a€?knots are a bit rustya€? (hint - try not using wire rope?) At least one took the very sensible step of taking an RYA Competent Crew course before actually coming along to join the club.
Something we could do, which would also get people meeting each other, is to book the pontoon one Saturday, get two or three yachts alongside, and so some revision of basics like knots, how to make up lines on a cleat, springing off, etc. Keith Willis, our Rear Commodore Sailing, with a couple of other dinghies, is intending to sail an Osprey to Alderney this summer, something that is well documented as a tradition in the club years ago. As everybody knows, Mike Kelly is our admirable Admiral as far as the LTSC Annual Cruise goes, and year after year he works very hard at researching the itinerary, making berth bookings etc etc.
He usually goes on the cruise on Graham Swetmana€™s boat, so it was interesting when I caught him during one cruise looking severely at Graham and pointing and I captioned it.
I think I converted the photo to B&W with an intent to use it in the then printed a€?Cruising Newslettera€?.
So a very nice weekend.A  The facilities at Chichester are excellent, and the marina is well run with a smooth running system on VHF where you book in when wanting to leave and then get called in groups of 3 or 4 when it is your turn for the lock. Keith Willis, our Rear Commodore Sailing, with a couple of other dinghies, is intending to sail an Osprey to Alderney this summer, something that is well documented as a tradition in the club years ago.A  Duncan Wright is intending to take his RIB across with them, as I believe is Dave Gorringe. An ethereal blend of two voices, guided by fate to find each other, travels the wire from iTunes to earbuds and into my ear canal a€” so exquisite, ita€™s almost unbearable.
Hannah and Maggiea€™s almost unearthly harmonies evoke descriptions like a€?Simon and Garfunkel crossed with the Indigo Girls.a€? Indeed, they have been included in a number of Simon and Garfunkel tributes.
When Hannah was around 10, there was an electric guitar sitting in the living room, a leftover from one of her fathera€™s stage roles.
The drama club would host coffeehouses every first Friday and that was where Hannah first performed solo, singing her songs and accompanying herself on guitar. Maggie was in chorus, but switched her energies to forming rock bands when she was still in middle school. Although Hannah earned a degree in American Studies with a focus on Race and Ethnicity and Maggie in Comparative Literature with a focus on English and Spanish Literature, it would be music that defined their path going forward.
The house to which Hannah was assigned was an old, Victorian-style residence (the oldest on campus) that, at 50 coeds, was smaller than most.
At some point they harmonized on one anothera€™s songs and some friends suggested that they sing together.
Hannah graduated in 2011 and moved to New York City, with Maggie still having one year left. In January of 2012, they recorded their second album, the aforementioned Muscle & Bone, and released it in May. Hea€™d come backstage to change costumes and she would witness the transformation of her father to an actor with a€?elaborate costumes and crazy makeup.a€? She absorbed the idea that investing onea€™s time into performance and the arts was a valuable thing. Maggiea€™s dad was happy that she was playing acoustic, and wasna€™t thrilled that her goal was to play rock. There was a broad range of types of performance, ranging from poetry and music (Hannah would sing and play guitar) to displays of visual art or even hair styling. In 2010, Hannaha€™s junior year, they sat down to play music together working on covers and originals. Hannah graduatedA  in 2011 and moved to New York City, with Maggie still having one year left. In January of 2012, they recorded their second album, the aforementioned Muscle & Bone, andA  released it in May. I have not been that far up Southampton Water before, but you cannot get lost - carry on until you have just passed the big silver dome that houses the incinerator and the view ahead is full of cranes, containers, and container ships, and you have reached Marchwood YC whose pontoons will be on your left. The food was good and they had, perhaps appropriately for the 1950s architecture, a beer on tap that seemed to be something that has disappeared from the pubs down here. We brought up temporarily on the C pontoon hammerhead whilst Peter Bennett went ashore to get a berth allocation from the HM - they do not operate on VHF and we could get no signal on our mobile phones. All was OK as I started in, taking account of the cross-tide, but just as I had fully turned into the fairway there was a sudden very heavy gust. Mike Knowles has been working valiantly on lists of those who want to find yachts to sail on, and of skippers willing to take new crew.
However quite a few of the newer people are younger and work, so cannot sail and make their initial contact with skippers on a Wednesday. In recent years it declined to a very pale imitation of the Meanderers, with a meeting in the Solent Room one Saturday every month. Ideally I think it should be run by a newer member and one of those who are working mid-week since this would provide some a€?creative tensiona€? with the Meanderers. And if there were sufficient interest we could have a yacht or two doing a€?trips round the baya€? meantime to get crew introduced to skippers, etc.
This for those of a historical disposition later got renamed TellTales whilst remaining still purely a Cruising Newsletter under that title, until eventually we, the cruisers, agreed to let the rest of the club also put other stuff in it because the general LTSC Newsletter a€?Mainsheeta€? had become essentially defunct. Selene is due to go back in the water tomorrow, sans radar pole, after being anti-fouled etc. I have not been that far up Southampton Water before, but you cannot get lost - carry on until you have just passed the big silver dome that houses the incinerator and the view ahead is full of cranes, containers, and container ships, and you have reached Marchwood YC whose pontoons will be on your left.A  The very hospitable club is housed in what is left of the old military port with a classic taste of MoD guard-house architecture.
So what about some yachts going across with them - for one thing this could provide some berths for the evening for the dinghy guys, for another would be much in the a€?one-cluba€? spirit, and we could probably have quite a good evening, either in Braye or up the hill in St Anne, once we are there.
Hannah Hickok and Maggie Kraus, a lesbian folk-pop duo, look at all the facets of living a€” loving, losing, friendship a€” as if peering through a microscope, taking the facets apart and reassembling them with delicate, faerie fingers.
In a perfect world, I think their articulate expression of lives so sharply felt and lived could change a listenera€™s DNA. Her parents were actors but her mother quit the theater when Hannah was born in favor of another career path.
In addition to the exposure to Broadway musical theater tunes, folk revival classics like James Taylor and Joni Mitchell were played often.
She was a member of the all-female and coed a capella groups and the chorus all four years of high school. After learning the basics, she and a small group of other campers performed for everyone in camp. Shea€™d coax boys into being members of her bands, selecting roles for them (a€?OK, Brian, youa€™re gonna play drumsa€¦a€?), regardless of their lack of experience.
She hated the results and invested in an MBox, a portable computer recording interface (with mic and instrument ports) for computers. Hannah ran the coffeehouse events each month with few exceptions, and with even more regularity when she was house president in her junior and senior years. So Maggie visited Hannah regularly at Hannaha€™s campus residence and found the vibe relaxed and inviting, more so than her own residence.
At the end of the summer they completed a two-week Northeast tour, their first extended travel on the road. After Maggie graduated they embarked on their first national tour, jumping from Portland, Maine to Nashville to Salt Lake City. We were thrilled to include them in our late-night guerrilla showcase at the 2013 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference and wea€™re eager to help them promote their new album. What a splendid start to the season, a Meet every fortnight and glorious weather more or less throughout. I did not like the berth allocated, A10, which was narrow and going to be hard to turn into with the wind, which at that point had freshened to about F5, blowing straight up Selenea€™s stern as we approached up what little fairway there is between A and B.
Selenea€™s T-keel conveys rather little lateral resistance unless she has a bit of way on, and I was slewed and blown onto the protruding anchor platform of a 19 metre LOA Grand Banks MV (ironically called Tusk) berthed on the B pontoon hammer-head.
In my case when leaving one sounder display showed minus 0.3 metres for a couple of moments (I have two displays with different offsets!), but we escaped nonetheless. However he reports the obvious - skippers are conservative creatures, and like taking their established crews! Memories of my time as an RAF cadet marching into various airfields in the 1950s came flooding back, see the picture below. But locked in with only a short free flow period, and 7 miles from the sea, would not be to my taste as a permanent base.
Because Hannah and Maggie plunge a rapier of emotional honesty into the psyche, the listener might become a better person, more empathetic. She performed in musical plays a€” her first was when she was 5 a€” and was in chorus all through grade school and high school.


He taught her how to play The Beatlesa€™ a€?Blackbird,a€? the first song she ever learned on guitar. She always liked music and, like Hannah, she was exposed to folk revivalists James Taylor and Joni Mitchell. There was supposed to be an a€?officiala€? staged performance at the end of the camp session, but it never happened. In 2001, Maggie was 11 going on 12 when, with her own allowance, she bought the Fender Stratocaster that she still occasionally plays.
In high school, tired of wrangling other students into supporting her, she returned to acoustic guitar and performed with two friends as an acoustic trio. Using her acoustic guitar, she began making her own digital recordings of songs using Pro Tools software.
There was a large living room where everyone would gather together at teatime once a week on Fridays. Shea€™d roam the halls, listening for good voices singing, perhaps idly, that she might recruit for the a capella group. Toward the end of Maggiea€™s freshman year, there was an event where graduating seniors were given a send-off banquet.
Later, in December, they opened for Dar Williams, an inspirational figure and thus, for them, their most notable performance to date.
Images,snapshots,and pics often capture a sentiment,a mood,a feeling,or even an idea of a person who's at the center of attention.
Having seen someone else get into difficulties up there and have to be rescued and turned in by the HMa€™s assistant in his dory, I asked the HM for somewhere else but no joy. Or, to be exact, the pole on Selenea€™s stern holding my radar and other antennae was (the radar is there because the self-tacking jib does not give enough clearance in front of the mast).
Other than the streaming hay-fever I was suffering from, the whole weekend was extremely pleasant. I started the Saunterers and then persuaded Sheila Wicks to take over, and it worked well for a while on the basis that it would go to a definite place where we could all get ashore for lunch, one not normally frequented by the Wednesday Meanderers, and that the destination would be announced by e-mail a couple of days in advance once the likely weather was known. Perhaps if we go to Marchwood again I should take one of my trumpets along so we could do a proper colours ceremony? A case in point is the stark beauty of a€?Curfewa€? from their second album, Muscle & Bone. Initially, shea€™d crank the sound up on a little amp, playing a€?awful musica€? in her bedroom.
At some point in high school, the computer crashed, taking hundreds of hours of recordings with it. When Hannah had settled in, she wanted to replicate the coffeehouses shea€™d experienced in high school, so she offered to organize a coffeehouse event at teatime one Friday per month. We recommend a visit to their website, where their blog will provide more insight into their gentle, quirky humor as well as photographic glimpses of their adventures on tour. Throughout the years,pictures has become one of the most popular ways to capture memorable moments. At least I got the mast and the shrouds past before the gust, but the radar pole suffered, see below. An extremely nice meal was had by all on Good Friday in the Chichester Yacht Club, with their hi-tech buzzing and flashing devices to tell you when your individual meal was ready for you to collect. This not only provided a vehicle for those who were not free on Wednesdays, but also for those whose boats were not parked in Lymington. Hannah wrote the song and sings the lead vocal with a call-and-response from Maggie in a passage near the end.
Her first performance was in sixth grade in a school function called a€?The Extreme Concert,a€? a faculty showcase she was allowed to enter. Nevertheless, she continued writing and performing at a lot of fundraisers, open mics, showcases and other school events. Hannah, visibly moved, thought, a€?Wow, this girl knows what shea€™s doing.a€? The song is on their first album and Hannah stated that it has been a fan favorite and has won two songwriting awards. They were upset but not discouraged and committed wholeheartedly to continue playing together. Hannah wrote the song andA  sings the lead vocal with a call-and-response from Maggie in a passage near the end.
And certainly,for a tantamount of consumer and shoppers you cant put a price tag on family and holiday pics. So unfortunately did Tuska€™s bow and varnished capping rail, and various efforts by the HM in his dory and others who took a line on the dock, pulling in opposite directions, bent a couple of Selenea€™s stanchions and damaged her gel coat for a few centimetres along the toe rail when rubbing against Tuska€™s prow. On the lay-day, Easter Saturday, Robyn and Peter, with most of the others, walked into Chichester itself, whilst I stayed around the boat and did a few odd jobs, and ate lunch in the very nice marina restaurant. I dona€™t think it is a coincidence that the idea began to decline once Sheila handed it over and the path of least resistance as a copy pure and simple of the Meanderers took over. So unfortunately did Tuska€™s bow and varnished capping rail, and various efforts by the HM in his dory and others who took a line on the dock,A  pulling in opposite directions, bent a couple of Selenea€™s stanchions and damaged her gel coat for a few centimetres along the toe rail when rubbing against Tuska€™s prow. It might simply be an unrequited love song, but it could easily describe a heartbreaking failed connection between two people, one who is gay and one who is straight or who is latently gay but not ready to accept a same-sex relationship.
She took lessons in her first year of high school and then learned more on her own by figuring out how to play covers. Maggie quickly seized the opportunity to organize her own a€?unpluggeda€? coffeehouse events. This past summer, I attended the 2013 CT Folk Festival and saw them perform and introduce new contestants for the songwriting competition. Decades after the invention of the first camera, a large number of consumers and shoppers continue to take pics, in a hgh tech fashion. That evening we had a a€?pontoon partya€?, but on the grass, and Andie and Mike Smith whetted some peoplesa€™ competitive instincts by organising an egg-and-spoon race.
Hours were spent learning chords for songs she wanted to sing by researching guitar tabs on the Internet, figuring out how to play them.
This past year also saw them begin recording their third album, In the Company of Strangers, their first with Purebred. This past year also saw them begin recording their third album,A  In the Company of Strangers, their first with Purebred. Instead of the antiquated bulky cameras with huge lenses,consumers and shoppers frequently use SmartPhones and digital cameras to capture images and to take holiday pics.
From family gatherings,to family picnics to traditional weddings to the holidays,consumers and shoppers often seize the opportunity at planned events and during the holidays for instance Thanksgiving and Christmas to take pictures of loved ones,family,friends and co workers.
Having gotten acquainted with Hannah in the Smiffenpoofs, Maggie had watched YouTube videos of her playing acoustic guitar and singing, so she invited Hannah to perform at her coffeehouse.
Having gotten acquainted with Hannah in the Smiffenpoofs, Maggie had watched YouTube videos of her playing acoustic guitar and singing, so she invited HannahA  to perform at her coffeehouse. Hannaha€™s performance at Maggiea€™s residence would be the first time either witnessed the other playing live. Since founding csaccac Inc in 2010, as Founder and President,I fill many hats including Product Tester and photographer. Like a smack addict, I play the track again and again, nodding off over and over in rushes of aching, sweet melancholy.
And truthfully speaking,in the beginning I experienced some difficulty;however,after I purchased my first digital camera I began to feel comfortable and enjoy the ease of taking pics with a digital camera. Highly recommended.THEN A BAND TOOK TO THE STAGE WHICH TOOK US BOTH COMPLETELY BY SURPRISE!
Months after I purchased my first digital camera,I set my sights on a tripod, a universal stand to hold my digital camera.
The main reason I purchased a tripod__ at the time, I wanted to create high quality self pics and group pics. Eventhough, I've had my tripod for some months,I am still learning the ins and outs of both my digital camera and tripod. Well,if you havent guessed or envisioned what the featured product for the month of November 2013 looks like or remotely even resembles __then as productor tester I guess I'll do the honors first__it's my tripod. Eventually, I wanted to find out what the craze had been all about and the reason that consumers seemed to ofA  been trading in personal computers for Tablets,_well, at least leaving them at home.
Ultimately, I placed online an order for a NookHD+ then opt to pick up the tech item from the store instead of waiting for it to be shipped to my place of residency.
AA  few weeks with the NookHD+, I was hooked_eventhough, IA  wasna€™t a fan of touchscreen only. And in all honesty, since the beginning of the Smart Phone craze, I had insisted upon that all of my primary tech gadgets used for work, research and blogging had to be equipped with a QWERTY keyboard. However, in this particular instance,The NookHD+, again, touchscreen only, I made an exception. As I continued to learn the ins and outs of my newly purchased NookHD+ , at the same time, I began to inquire about the accessories compatible with the tech gadget.
In doing so, I foundA  the tech item had a Stylus Pen specifically made to use with the NookHD+.
Weeks later, I purchased a different kind of Stylus Pen , I noticed while standing atA  the checkout counter at Walgreens,pictured next to this article is that Stylus Pen. Quite astonishing the Stylus Pen worked wellA  with both of my tech gadgets ( Smart Phone & Tablet).
A frequent question a tantamount of consumers and shoppers find themselves entertaining especially during the holidays when manufacturers and retailers offer what they consider to be great deals and bargains. After giving the device a run for its money as well as a brief critique of the various apps and functions,I stated in my review of the Nook HD+ how pleased I was with the tech gadget.
Further into the critique, I also commented that I was soooo pleased with the tech gadget that I wanted to protect my investment.


Based on my income and budget,I considered the purchase of the Nook HD+ to be a major purchase of the year.
Shortly after, I purchased the Nook HD+,I began to look at the recommended accessories for the tech gadget.
Eventually, after I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange 14 day trial period,I chose to protect my investment with a Nook HD+ cover. As I began to search and think of different items that could be the product of the month for September,I began to heavily weigh in on August's product of the month,the Nook HD+cover. Hours later,I arrived to the assertion that there's more than one way to protect your investment. With the assertion___, there's more than one way to protect your investment, I made the final choice to make Smart Phone covers as the product of the month for September. Furthermore, within the past five years,Ive purchased several Smart Phones from Virgin Mobile.
To be truthful, I've even purchased Smart Phone insurance,a good choice because a few months later my Smart Phone had an accident.
Despite all of the stuff I tried, sampled, tasted and tested during the recent months, as a result of a long review and critique besides from featuring the Smart Phone as a product of the month,I began to think of the different ways Ia€™ve used to protect my Smart Phone as an alternative product of the month. For instance,Smart Phone insurance has been one the ways I protect my investment from unexpected accidents. Ostensibly, there's more than one way to protect your Smart Phone from accidents such as, for example, you accidentally drop and break your Smart Phone or in some weird, odd, freak accident as you rush out the door you accidentally step on your Smart Phone or heaven forbids the same thing happens to you that happen to me, a few months ago, I dropped my Smart Phone in the toilet.
Without a question, eschewing further debate, Smart Phone insurance is a great investment for consumers and shoppers who use their Smart Phone daily and for work. Best of all, Smart Phone insurance usually saves the consumer from digging deep into their pockets. So, what about before those mishaps and accidents, if you havena€™t figured it out__ there's more than one way to protect your investment. Even though, at first, I might of skipped over protecting my investments, I am more open to the idea of investing and protecting my major purchases.
Here's an example of what I am talking about, I currently have several Smart Phone covers to protect my Smart Phone from breakage, moisture, and malfunctioning.
Varying in price,color,size and shape, most of today's Smart Phone manufacturers and retailers offer to consumers and shoppers Smart Phone covers as an accessory. From passwords, to anti-theft apps, to screen locks and codes, there's more than one way to protect your investment.
Regardless of the price, and hopefully it is within your budget, a true frugal savvy shopper knows the importance of protecting their investment. Above everything else,both I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange process,quite remarkable,I even have the receipt to prove it. Unlike sooo manyA  items, I ve returned and exchanged in the past,__it,meaning my Nook HD+ survived the fourteenth days as printed on the receipt.
A business practice that's part of Barnes and Noble store policy that allows customers fourteen days to return an item.
In short,the 14th day, adhering to store policy was the final day that I couldA  actually return my Nook HD+ and get cash back. It goes without saying ,I readA  the instructions,totally unavoidable with a new tech gadget,as well as,downloaded apps,and,uploaded wallpapers. Not quite sure,on the day I purchased my Nook HD+__ifA  in fact, I would be satisfied with my purchase,I chose at the time not to purchase any kind of accessories. As it turns out,I was soooo pleased with my purchase of the Nook HD+,I wanted to protect my investments. It doesnt matter if you're on lunch break,on a mini vacation,at a webinar or conference,filling out an online report or having to send emails can be a hassle if you don't have a wifi connection,a Broadband device is just one of the many tech gadgets that consumers and shoppers frequently use to get an internet connection.
Constantly,on the go,I wanted to have access to wifiA  while away from my place of residency.
Because,I perform an arrary task that frequently requires wifi access ,I purchased a Broadband to Go device from Virgin Mobile. Egregiously,as a Virgin Mobile customer and fan,I live by Virgin Mobile products except in the case of Virgin Mobile wifi devices. Recently,I purchased Virgin Mobile's MiFi 2200 to conciliate my worries about not being able to access wifi home. Aside from very slow internet speed,the device could only connect to one tech gadget and,the 3G USB plug n play stick broke too easily. Affordable,great to have on hand for shopping emergencies,the latest in recycling,a recyclable tote makes shopping less of a hassle.
Ditching the old biodegradeable plastic bags for a recyclable tote,it's a smart move and a great investment for frugal,savvy,and environmentally conscious consumers and shoppers.Available in most local chain stores and at grocery stores,recyclable totes are becoming the better choice than leaving stores with the traditional biodegradeable plastic bag. Part of a movement to get consumers and shoppers involved in recycling and to think about going green,consumers and shoppers now have the option of trading in those plastic bags for a recyclable tote. A frequent shopper,I usually purchase a couple of recyclable totes to hold store purchases and other stuff. Eventhough,I like having the choice to purchase a recyclable tote,I havent completely stop using biodegradeable plastic bags. However,I have to point out the fact that when a consumer and shoppers purchase a recyclable tote they're not limited to using the tote only in that store,that's why they're called recyclable totes because they can be used more than once. In fact, most recycable totes last for more than a week,I should know because I still have a few leftover from the previous month. A great deal,a really good find,a price you wont find anywhere else,and the best price among competitors,I love a great sale and I love rewards for shopping.
Savings and Rewards,for most consumers and shoppers,it's all about getting the best price for items purchase daily.
From household supplies to groceries,anyone who shops frequently knows consumers and shoppers love a really good sale_,the economic recession of 2008 could be the culprit. In fact,since the 2008 economic recession savings and rewards has become extremely important to American families on a budget. For many American consumers and shoppers,the unexpected downturn of the American economy caused a disruption in their daily activies thus forcing consumer and shoppers to rethink the way they shop and how they shop. As a frequent shopper and consumer,I am constantly looking for a great deal and sales on items I purchase regularly,mainly because I do live on a strict budget. Admittedly,after the 2008 economic recession,I rediscovered coupons,and began clipping coupons frequently. In addition to clipping coupons,I also began to check sale ads at home and at the door of stores before shopping. Along with making a shopping list,clipping coupons at home,checking sale ads at the door and comparing prices,these days one of the best ways to save and get the best deals,I feel without a question has to be with a savings and reward card. And speaking honestly, a savings and rewards card from your local chain store should be a consumer or shoppers BF(bestie).
A must have for consumers and shoppers who seriously want to save,a savings and rewards card. Throughout the years, my experience with last minute shopping in most instances was not too pleasant. Admittedly,I empathize as well as concur with consumers who express sentiments that last minute shopping makes the shopper(consumer) feel uncomfortable and forlorn with the just thought of buying a gift at the last minute. Often tight on funds to purchase a gift ahead of time,last minute shopping for an overwhelmed consumer with a limited budget could cause the consumer to be late and in some instance not to attend the event or special function.
Subsequently, over the years, I have come to realize that last minute shopping it's not the best of fun. As a result, I definitely would not recommend last minute shopping to a consumer as a shopping tip. Unequivocally, shopping for special events and functions such as finding an appropriate could take several visits different stores. Finding the appropriate could mean spending an entire day in a Hallmark store reading cards, it could also mean spending all day on the phone with friend or relatives discussing gift registry,preferences,stores,likes and dislike of the recipient. Ostensibly,the older you get the adults in your life expect two things from you one not to embarrass them in public and two if you don't have a gift to bring at least show up at special functions on time. Indeed, an earnest shopper as well as a meticulous shopper knows finding the right gift or card for a special function could require hours of shopping and visiting different stores. Shopping done precipitously could result in purchasing the wrong size,color, or something way out in left field. Don't wait until the last minute to shop for a party,baby showers,bachelorette bash,birthdays,holidays ,and anniversaries avoid uncomfortableness and the feeling of being inadequate,plan the week before. On certain days, I have even shopped the day of the event that often leaves me feeling embarrassed ashamed, and guilty about my finances even worse depress. Incontrovertibly,last minute shopping in many instances could causes the consumer to become distraught,exasperated, and disconcerted not surprisingly all the emotions take away from the planned day. What's more important being punctilious for the planned event or arriving with a hand picked gift for the recipient or recipients? Ultimately,the answer remains with the shopper (consumer) The answer should be non bias and based on the event as well as the recipient and not the shoppers wallet . The meticulous consumer that normally keeps track of birthdays, holidays,and anniversaries with calendars,through emails,P DA's ,Smart phones and other tech savvy gadgets of courses would not necessarily share the same feelings of a last minute shopper .
