last minute gift ideas from old Uncle Max
the fact that you have taken the time to read,comment and/or post on this blog (i think) means you have some sort of pride or concern for the city of Detroit so here’s what i propose: each one of you that reads this should take some of those precious few remaining ” last minute dollars” and get a gift that directly supports this area that we live in. buy someone a product that is based locally like a new Carhartt jacket or for you hotshots out there i’m sure you know someone that wouldn’t mind finding a new Corvette under the tree. since we all know someone who eats occasionally (some more than others) gift cards for local, independent restaurants are a swell idea or maybe just pay more attention to the place you’re shopping and make sure it’s not a giant retail chain that really doesn’t need your thirty bucks to help pay the phone bill. supporting local business really does make a difference and i think we all forget that sometimes, i try my hardest to direct my money very specifically but even i stray once in a while…i’ll admit that i occasionally gas up the ol’ Daewoo at the Mobil station and run over to the Outback steakhouse for a Bloomin’ Onion!
