Online Storage or Live Auction.

A real slump in Auctions

storage auction and flea marketThere’s been a slump in our regular live auctions lately and I guess the baby boomers. aren’t retiring and downsizing like they have in the past. There’s been a good run of quality items for that very reason … well…  I”ll just have to wait for the second wave.

Plan B

So, I’ll go to plan B, that’s what I’ll have to do, go back to my favorite, the Storage Auctions.

You know the reality show that you watch on TV. You know, where the auction junky finds a fortune by sticking their bare hands into an unknown container of?

That part is just silly, Eh!

For a blog writer, if you are ever in a slump for something to write and you need inspiration, check out the storage locker circuit. Some of the lockers have a lot of good, bad or ugly stories to tell.

Open the door to a nice, neat looking boxes, and a couch and chair which are surgically wrapped in plastic Or, open the door and it’s as if somebody stood in the doorway and just threw the items in. (Now there is one upset person)

Taking the fun out of the auctions

A lot of these locker auctions are now being sold online with only a couple of terrible looking pictures to go by.

So, buying these lockers is not for everybody.

Live storage auctions were bad enough before with only a flashlight to find your prize, so, number one rule at those auctions is to bring a really good flashlight and a good imagination.

Now,… how do these companies expect you to bid on something with a blacked out picture that’s taken upside down?

You have to be either stupid or nervy.

Must be a lot of nervy people out there,  the online delinquent storage business is doing good, so, call me “Nervy”

But, these delinquent lockers could be a lot of work, and did I say … you’re bidding on these lockers with very lousy photos.

As we speak I spot this large locker with skids. Why would they pay $700? rental a month to store skids? And why would somebody buy these skids? No money in skids! So. Call me stupid.

“I just bought a job “

I did find some gold once…  I think?

Anyway, …

It’s not for everyone.

Olympic Athletes on a Natural Adrenalin High

 

 Can Olympic Committees check for a natural high? We all know that Adrenalin Rush can’t be measured, the energy, …  it can’t be seen, it’s just there.

 2018 Olympics have come and gone and what a show!

Couldn’t help but notice,  at the top of the ski runs, the skiers lining themselves up to give it their all, and overcame a coach or a friend, giving them a big hug, bunting of the fists, wishing them good luck. The 2 and 4 man bobsleighing teams, all hands touched, wishing themselves good luck… All the way through the games, well-wishers were sharing their energy. They gave that person an edge, a little extra of your energy that they needed to pull it off. You can’t measure it with a blood test; you can’t test it through chemical analysis. It’s just there.

That athlete just got a little extra adrenalin fix from a well-wisher, but then,  you have to wonder, we all give each other handshakes, big hugs, and a pat on the back. Do we all do it for a deep down unknown reason? Is it just a tradition or is there more to it. Sharing of good energy could be a power booster. The athletes are already pumped; they trained long and dedicated hours to just qualify to be at the Olympics. I’m not just talking about our Canadian Olympians, but all the hard working athletes from around the world.  These dedicated people are already on a natural high and that extra bit of positive energy from a well-wisher might just have been enough to win that gold.

And that’s all they needed.

The pure energy that is produced in a stadium full of well-wishers can’t be measured, it’s just there.  Whether it’s our home countries’ team or not, we all feel sadness for an athlete that just didn’t make it or worse case scenario, getting hurt.  We might yell a little louder for our own homegrown team but overall, we root for all other teams as well. So the energy you can’t measure, it’s just there, passed on from one to the other.

These athletes dedicated their young lives to be the best and more importantly, they brought the world together for one short period of time. You made us all proud.

That’s what the Olympics’ is all about.  Eh!

For those athletes that don’t play fair, then they shouldn’t be amongst the real hard working Athletes that do.
