Offer: Computer tech support (near downtown Cambridge Galt) 55d - Unique service we think you have not, until now, considered ... maybe didn’t even know you needed!!! During the past year Ivory H. Kitty has puuurrrrrr-fected her monitoring of home office tech support. She is practiced at customizing our computer screen and insuring we see every single letter and digit by enlarging the font size from every day how-hum boring to gigantic closeup with a mere swipe of her tail. Further she can throw that darn spellcheck into over-drive testing with a light dance across the keyboard. Very impressive! We think that keeping this wonderful “help” knowledge to ourselves is the utmost in selfishness and so, in the spirit of the generosity of Freecycle, we propose that a remote and free-franchise training, over zoom of course, of your own in-house four legged technicians may be in order. Perhaps they even have some techniques Ivory H. Kitty his missed? We look forward to negotiations.
Offer: The Dry Look (Man’s hair product) (near downtown Cambridge Galt) 55d - Long long ago, at the beginning of time, not only did young men have long hair, they also wanted it to stay in place to keep that rebellious look just so, but without the smelly spray-netting the women had been using. So "The Dry look" was invented to fill the glaring gap in the market. It is still used in makeup artistry for film (have you noticed that men jumping from the roof of one train-car to the next never mess their hair in the wind?). So .... if you think your look could use some stay-power while you tape your daring Covid home videos ... or you just to keep your look “pristine”, please message me why this collector’s item ought to be yours!
