Babs Powers and the Store that Wouldn’t Die
September 28th, 2007 by Babs

Okay, since my online store had pretty much beem kaput, I had been planning on closing up shop. In fact for about a month the site was essentialy down because I hadn’t paid my annual fee on time to keep the store’s domain active. Yet, in the past week since the store’s been back up (in “view only mode”), I’ve received about a half dozen notifications for subscription sign ups. Add to that the fact that last night I had a total stranger come up to me at Ottoson Middle School’s Open House and ask me if I was the Mistress of the Bishi Harem, I’m now starting to wonder if closing the store is such a good idea. I’m toying with the idea of keeping the site up as a display, but going back to eBay to do most of my sales. I may be giving up more money, but then I’ll be selling more, too.

In other news, never buy a Ford Taurus. You may recall an earlier post where I mentioned that after the fuel pump and filter had been replaced, the car suddenly stopped knocking. Well, it started back up again a few weeks ago, followed by the engine light coming on a week and a half ago. As the engine light came on a week prior to the fuel pump dying I thought it would be a good idea to get the car hooked up to a computer and figure out what the hell is wrong. According to the computer the car is running lean. File that under “I could’ve figured that out”. In fact I did. :) Our only problem is that the computer can’t tell us where the extra air is getting in. Our mechanic spent a good hour going over every section of the engine area, looking for a leak. Apparently it is well hidden. Even if the part that needs to be replaced is cheap, it’s going to take forever to find it, meaning major labor fees. :P This fucking car better live long enough to see 200,000 miles!
