Shopping with Ailsa
Well, if you haven't guessed by now, I happen to really LOOOOOVE Shopping -- especially Comparison Shopping!
And now there's MORE SHOPPING! It's my brand new page! I'm just working on this to create a 'neater' Shopping Page where everything is listed under Special Headings... come see what I've done, so far!
You'll find All Sorts of Stuff -- Financial Stuff, Mortgages, Real Estate, Hot Tubs(!), Jewellery, Sports Stuff, Decorating Stuff, Holiday Stuff .. All sorts of Great Stuff, so pop into the Next Page and have a wee look!
I think I'll just leave some of these banners on the site, for now, since the companies don't change -- just the ads! I add new stuff almost daily, whenever I come across something I think my readers will like or need! Mostly, I'm adding the new stuff to the More Shopping Page, because I'm busy building a new Shopping 'Center', if you will, so that you can find things a lot easier! Ain't that nice?? ha,ha,ha!
If you're looking for a particular product, drop me a line and I'll see if I can find it for you!

Please Support Our Site by clicking on the Banners that appeal to you. We really appreciate your support!
Just sit back and take a 'scroll' through my Shopping Page...you can run and get your Credit Card when you find something really cool! Happy Shopping!
On the off-chance that you've never bought anything on-line before, it's really easy and very secure. I buy stuff on-line all the time, and it always works out well!
The Mountains are covered in Snow, again (I can finally see them again -- we have a great Mountain View, but it has been too hazy from the fires to see them for over a month, now, so it's like seeing an old friend, again, when the haze disappears!).
If you love to Ski or Snowboard (or you're lucky enough to live where you can Golf Year-Round...), you'll like this site.
I think that you know me enough, by now, to know that I don't believe in paying more than you have to for anything, and that includes Drugstore Stuff... Check this site out.
BRADY BUNCH Wall Clock
This 8-inch wall clock shows ALL the Brady kids against a
flower-power background and a pink plastic frame. Requires one AA
battery, not included.
You'll be amazed at all the cool stuff they have for Decorating at Walmart. Here are some direct links to make your 'surfing' a little easier!
Here's a nice fresh new ad that I just thought was funny! You can't NOT laugh at the word 'swell'! ha,ha!
Have you just moved in to a New Home, or haven't gotten around to getting your New Address Labels (me!)? This is the company where I get my Business Cards.
Look what I just found! A link for Scottish Golf Products from St. Andrews... remember that I'm Scottish, so this is all very exciting for me!
Well, I spent a good part of today trying to order a copy of East of Eden (John Steinbeck) so I can participate in Oprah's Book Club. You can click on these Banners to get your copy, and I have to go find another one for Canadian Readers -- it's always good to have lots of Choices!
I just finished East of Eden, and man, what a great book! If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this, yet, or you're looking for a great book to give to someone, this is it. I never have very much time to read, but I found myself stealing as much time as I could to 'get back to the book'! Now I really miss all the Characters, so I must go out and read all the rest of Steinbeck's Work! Some of it I've read already, but I think I got a lot more out of his work, now.

You won't believe the great stuff you can buy at Hickory Farms! I really love the Fruitful Tower -- that would be fun to get as a gift!
I just came across this Bracelet -- isn't it gorgeous??
<>I love this Scalloped Vase -- I sent it to my wonderful friend, Kim, and she loves it -- lovely gift! I just got this for my Mum, as well -- this is by far my favorite gift to give, these days! I hear the Gift-wrapping is gorgeous, too, and that's always a nice touch!
I just think these are gorgeous -- this'll be the next ring I (or rather, Dwight!) will add to my collection of pretty things!
This is the coolest little invention -- perfect for folks with tons of Digital Photos (like meeeee!)
Here's another one!
In case you can't get to Hawaii, bring it home to you!
Dwight and I have talked about perhaps living in Hawaii for a year or so one day... I actually had my State Teachers' Test Results sent to Hawaii back when I lived in California. We're still hopeful!
And now for somewhere nice to wear your fancy new Bikini, or to take the person you bought it for!

Save your neck -- you know when you cradle the phone in between your ear and your shoulder, then you end up with a major pain in the neck! (Although that sounds more like when you've talked your way into a new relationship...ha,ha,ha!)
Here's something great for the Bride! It's amazing how many photos and Wedding Paraphernalia get away from you when you're in the midst of a Wedding! Great for keeping your Memories in Order, and easy to access when any one at all comes to the door! ha,ha! (Come on, we all know that Wedding and Baby pictures are at the very top of the list of 'Pictures we must share with everyone' ! Ain't nuthin' wrong with that!!)
I had to search the Internet a few months back to find some Costumes for Cara's School Play. I came across this ad and thought this might help for School Plays and, of course, Hallowe'en or Costume Parties, if you're lucky enough to be invited to one!
Parents are always looking for cool new party ideas, and having a Birthday Costume Party is always fun...girls are endlessly happy with any sort of 'Fairy-Princess-Ballerina' Costumes, and boys love anything to do with Space-Cowboys-Superheroes'!
Hey, I tried to raise Cara in a 'gender-free' way at first (everything in primary colors -- red, yellow and blue -- it was the 80's and this sort of thing was very popular...!), but this stuff is ingrained! I can't believe the difference in raising a girl versus a boy. Aidan is interested in Machines, Trucks, Building, Super Heroes and anything Electronic -- we had to tape up all the Stereos when he was 8 months old, because he was climbing on the units and removing the wires! It's amazing, really!
Uh, oh! Looks like a little spelling error in the above ad, ('whiles', as in, "I gots me a Botanic Garden Fondue Set whiles I was Shopping with Ailsa..."!!! ha,ha,ha! Hey, who cares if you're getting 65% off!)
10% - 60% Off -- not bad, eh?? (I'm out looking for great deals for you!)
Trading Spaces is one of my favorite Design Shows -- Cara and I were hooked when we first saw an Episode of Trading Spaces in a Hotel in Hope, B.C., right in the middle of the Canadian Rockies! Vern and Ty are our favorites!
This little Box with the 'x' is actually Amazon.com -- I have no idea why it won't show up as a picture, but it always works! I just bought some Books for my Brother-in-Law in Ontario from them -- always great stuff at great prices.
Hey, did you know that Amazon sells all sorts of Hardware?? Tools, Lights, Outdoor Equipment and Furniture -- and they're linked up with lots of Top Name Stores, now, so you can find pretty much whatever you want through them!
Check this Card out! Is this cool, or what?? It's from The Bank of Scotland (my Homeland!) -- be fun to whip this out at Dinner, huh?? Don't worry if you're not Scottish (how many times does that come up in conversation?!)... Credit Cards are not what they used to be ... everything is sooo International, now! So go ahead and Apply!
I just thought you might like to look at this girl! I happen to really like Exercise Equipment -- I just got a cool Stepper for Cara (our 15 year old) that is great, and Dwight got me a Total Gym for Mother's Day -- don't worry! I asked him for it for my new Exercise Room! It's an amazing Fitness Tool!
I just went into this Walmart Site to Check Out the Gym Equipment -- they have a fantastic selection, and I have to say that their prices are incredibly low... they have my favorite Stepper for only $49.95 -- it's the one that is quite small and does not have the Arm Rest, so you'll get a much better work-out, especially if you add Light Hand Weights. Check it out -- you'll be very pleasantly surprised at the cool stuff you can get!
You know what? Dwight got me the Total Gym from Walmart -- it is one of the best Exercise Machines I have ever used, and takes up relatively little space. It's gentle exercise, in that it uses a Pulley System, so it won't hurt your Back, and it can easily accomodate any fitness level. Good for Men and Women!
Well, if you're a Fisherman (Dwight loves to Fish! And Aidan just got a Scooby Doo Fishing Rod from Walmart!), you'll recognize this as an ad for a Fishing Lure!
This ad is huuuuge, but I think this is one of the coolest little inventions!
Maybe you'd like to pick up some Show Tickets for yourself or as a nice (very nice!) gift!
I'm a major Simpsons Fan (I've even written a few Scripts for them -- all I need to do now is sell them to the Simpsons! Hey if you know an Agent, hook me up!), so I always like to add in anything involving them! D'Oh!!
They have all sorts of cool things at this site -- I just got the Lord of the Rings Ring for my daughter, Cara, and she loves it!
This one's just for fun!
Maybe you're into writing... check out this great site! Lots of cool stuff and great info for writers.
Hey, have a wee look at these books and see if there's some great summer reading for you!
Maybe you're tired of shopping and you'd like to take a little R & R Break!
This is really cool Chinese Paper Art -- click on and have a wee look

Well, this is really more of a 'gift to yourself'...

Most people would do almost anything for a massage...except for buy it for themselves!
Dwight just bought himself a new 61" Sony Big Screen TV -- it's huuuuge! Maybe you know someone who would like one, too?? Shipping is waaay easier when you buy on-line!

I love to Bake Cakes and make other Sweet Treats for my Family and Friends, but now that I live so far from most of them, this Service is great!
Don't these look delicious??? These are a great gift for someone who lives in the U.S. !
>The really cool thing about Fleurop is that they can deliver pretty much anywhere in the world, so you can send Flowers to your Mother wherever she lives! And won't she be extra happy???
I got my Eyes done at the Culver Eye Centre. Check out their site and 'see' (ha, ha,ha!) if this might be right for you!
Hey, you know what would be cool -- to Have a REAL 'Sight-Seeing' Vacation! You could book a 10 day Vacation in Calgary, Alberta, Canada ( Calgary has long been a major center for Eye Surgury -- Cosmetic and Necessary...).
You could 'pop in' and get your Eyes checked to see if you're a good Candidate for the Lasik Procedure (sight correction), with an Appointment, of course... then you could scoot out to the Mountains and check out the gorgeous Hot Springs, take in a little Golf, Swimming, Hiking, Fishing... whatever you like .. then come back and get your Eyes done. You could do your Follow-up Visits with a local Optician.
And don't forget, if you're working with U.S. Dollars, it's like getting 25% off the entire Vacation, including the Eye Surgury! YaaaaHooo! Finally, the Low Canadian Dollar is paying off! ha,ha,ha!
