Diva Dan Is At A Doorway Of New Opportunity & Career Path

Diva Dan Returns

I am so excited to announce that Diva Dan’s Kitchen Show will be returning back to MIKEYSSMAIL and Diva Dan’s Private You Tube Channel in about 3 Weeks. Diva Dan’s Kitchen Show will be appearing through other media such as filming and magazines.

Daniel is working a temp job right now for a garden centre in our area. Pulling very long days. Due to it’s seasonal nature… it’s expected for him to be laid off or reduced in hours. So Daniel is preparing for the future.

Daniel is undergoing preliminary test filming and trials with his own creation of Diva Dan’s Kitchen Show. Daniel was discovered through Mikeyssmail. His first few shows have demonstrated knowledge, now it’s just honing his presentation skills and personality.  

This is the second opportunity to come for Daniel as we were slated to appear on Reality Television due to Daniel’s Kitchen Show 2 months ago. We turned down that opportunity due to filming location and time restraints.

Now it is up to me to learn how to edit better. Film better angles and a lot more speed. Daniel needs to work on his online personality in giving more of himself. Daniel tends to be quiet and more serious when filming by himself. We need to up his personality.

This opportunity is “Freak’n Huge”. I am more excited for him. Daniel is on the gateway of being known world wide for his cooking and kitchen knowledge. Those who know Daniel, know that Daniel’s true passion is gardening and cooking. Daniel is able to combine his gardening and knowledge of growing his own fruits and vegetables… apply it to the kitchen… then transfer for world wide via Media.

More to come in the weeks ahead!

Daniel is calm and collective… I am jumping up and down with excitment for him.

Are Store Sale Signs Great or Showing Us The Extreme Mark Up Of Products?

Are Sales Signs Great?

Are Sale Signs That Great?

I admit… I’m a price shopper… A NOW ON SALE sign will get my blood pumping and automatically I am thinking of the money I am saving… So what’s the problem.

So what’s the problem here… well what if you needed something that wasn’t on sale. You know a sale will happen but of course they won’t ever tell you that… and if it does go on sale, the store may not have enough in stock to begin with.

Diva Dan and I were looking for an electric lawn mower.

  1. Diva Dan doesn’t want to use GASOLINE and cause more pollution with mowing the grass.
  2. He’s hit a rock with our lawn mower and I think busted the internal gears. It still works but sounds like a farm tractor.
  3. Our current lawn mower is doomed for the dump.

So we were looking at Canadian Tire to buy a new mower. (It’s like a Home Depot but Canadian Version). They have this 14″ Lawn Mower for $159.99 but we think it’s a bit too narrow! So we decide to continue to shop for the next size up… but the next size up is regular price and we don’t want to spend that type of money at this time.

I was looking for the Canadian Tire flyer and seen that 14″ mower again but the price has dropped to $90.00. With taxes, the price savings is nearly $80.00.

Which brings me to my point!

If I was compulsive, I would have bought the lawn mower for $159.99 plus Taxes = 181.00. and Merely 3 days later the flyer comes out saying the price had an $80.00 price drop for THIS WEEK ONLY!  I turned to Diva Dan and told him… if we would have bought it… we would have just been ripped off by $80.00.

When I see a sale sign… my immediate reaction is… OH LOOK… They can drop the price by $80.00??? Does this mean there was that much mark up in the product to begin with. We’ve all heard of loss leaders could this have been one of them?

I bought a mixer that day for $12.00, regular price $40.00… they were having a sale… dropping the price $28.00… YES I BENEFIT in buying it on sale like this… but for those who purchased the mixer at regular price… did they just get screwed over?

So I am thinking it’s working like this… IMPORTED FROM CHINA equals really cheap but REALLY HIGH MARK UP… Charging the suckers who pay full price are compensating for those like me who are waiting for the sales.

Diva Dan’s Counter Top Mixer was $100.00 off the price… so how can they drop a price $100.00 in the first place? Wouldn’t they have been better off to lower the regular retail price and sell more of it, instead of few at a higher cost.

I believe what Donald Trump says and don’t quote me on this… “You can make more money selling stuff at a reduced price by selling more volume than you would selling it at a regular price and selling few!”

What do you think? Are We Being Scammed?

Mikey So Tired…

Tired Behind The Scenes

Usually I have a drive that is beyond the regular person. Pushing out ideas and forever dying to get a crochet hook into my hands and create something.

I don’t know what’s happened to me but in the last two days. I am so exhausted…

Could this be weather or what? I am not sure… something strange is definitely in the air this year. Our house is being over taken by the common house fly… they are in large numbers and have no problems overtaking a kitchen. I finally broke down after too many of them decided to use my glasses as a perch! I invested in fly paper traps. I can’t believe how many are stuck to the traps…

I feel like I want to sleep when I get home but I get this guilt feeling of trying to continually produce!

I’m crazy I know!
