Grandfather Clock Family Tradition

A home with a Grandfather Clock makes me think of continuity, warmth and family togetherness.

Traditions have always been important in my family and I like to carry on the special ones so my children and grandchildren will have good memories of certain times in their lives to remember, talk about and even laugh about! Can you imagine learning to tell the time from your Grandfather as he shows you his prize possession of a Grandfather Clock sitting proudly in his home? As a child and even as a young adult I recall the pride my friends Grandpa showed when we asked about his clock!

Some families are lucky enough to have grandfather clocks in their homes. I like the continuous ticking of a clock in my life, and the soft chiming of the bells day and night to tell me the time. Sure I could look at my cell phone to see the time, or the stove clock, but chimes keep me aware of the hours ticking away.

Ridgeway makes the Grandfather Clock I'd enjoy in my living room! With free shipping and free in-home setup, on purchases over $1100.00 this clock would be a perfect gift for me if anyone is looking! Be sure to listen to the chimes - which ones do you like best?

Hey I thought you might be interested in CardSwap.ca. We are a peer to peer market that allows you to buy and sell discounted gift cards.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CardSwap.ca first in Canada: Launches to redeem $600M of unused gift cards
Toronto - CardSwap.ca is a peer-to-peer online market for discounted gift cards. It serves two types of people: Savvy shoppers who are looking to save money before heading to the malls, 10-40% off face value; and gift card holders who would prefer to have cash. With registrants doubling monthly, CardSwap launches this holiday season by providing trusted third-party services to this unserved niche of consumers. It’s like an eBay exclusively for gift cards, but better, as CardSwap provides a guarantee on the funds and value in the card.
It is estimated that as much as 10-19% of gift cards are never redeemed, probably forgotten or lost. In a $6 billion dollar Canadian industry, this is a huge problem.
CardSwap is now giving consumers holding these unwanted gift cards a choice. Simply: Register, post the gift card up for sale (which is verified before listed) then sit back. The seller will receive an email notification when the card is sold. Sellers have full control over the price of the gift cards and are charged 6% (minimum $4.50) of the sale price.
In the current economic climate consumers are looking for ways to stick to a budget with minimal change to their current lifestyle. Not only can consumers receive a 10-40% discount they can be sure that all the gift cards posted are valid, secure and can be purchased quickly and conveniently.
CardSwap has already attracted thousands of registered users who have enthusiastically embraced this new online site.
