While many of us don’t do the Black Friday shopping it is nice to know that as we prepare the  meal  if we need something there will be  some stores such as Kmart, Walmart, Dollar General, Family Dollar   which will be open early. (See list below to confirm)

DOLLAR TREE will be open at 8am but will close at 4pm if you need foil pans or paper dinner napkins and such.

You might want to make your shopping map including the times and locations of the stores you plan to visit.


  • Best Buy Stores: Open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving (six hours earlier than last year’s midnight opening.) until 10 p.m. on Friday.
  • Belk — all stores open by 8pm on Thursday, November 28. See the Belk leaked ad scan here.
  • CVS — Traditionally open regular hours on Thanksgiving, and the Black Friday freebies are usually also available beginning that day. Pharmacies may be closed for some of the day, however.
  • Dollar General 7 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day and continue throughout the weekend. Go here to see sales
  • Dollar Tree 8am to 4pm at the one on 71st between  Memorial and Mingo in Tulsa  (Check with the ones in your area.)
  • Family Dollar starts at 8 am! http://www.theblackfriday.com/family-dollar-blackfriday.shtml

  • Sears: Open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving until 10 p.m. on Friday.

  • Staples: Open at 8 p.m. until midnight. Reopen at 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Friday.
  • Starbucks — Historically, non-mall stores are open all or partial hours on Thanksgiving Day, then close for a few hours before they start brewing coffee for caffeine-deprived shoppers on Black Friday. Look for some stores to stay open around the clock, though, especially if they’re in open-air shopping centers.
  • Target: Open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving until 11 p.m. on Friday. (Target will also be offering hundreds of deals online on Thanksgiving morning that will include almost all deals that will be available in the store.

  • Wal-Mart: Open 24 hours at most stores, although we haven’t yet heard what time the Black Friday doorbusters will go live for 2013..
  • Walgreens The Walgreens Black Friday 2013 ad leaked, and it shows that most locations will be open on Thanksgiving Day with up to 50 percent off toys
    Black Friday freebies and deals go live at 12:01 am on Thanksgiving.

A Math Trick

You too can absolutely amaze everyone you know as you introduce this to them.

I had lunch with a friend today who told me about a neat little math trick.

Take the age you will be this year (2011). Add the year you were born. The sum of the two numbers seems to always be the same number no matter whose birthday is involved.

Try this on your mom, your dad, your siblings, your neighbors, your co-workers, etc., (you get the point).

Sharing Your Files


We’re always looking for ways to e-mail large files without getting cut off by cranky e-mail providers. Those files may be pictures, videos or audio messages. Once upon a time, my friend Marc and I would make micro cassettes and mail our messages instead of writing letters. This could be a great alternative to plain email. People could actually hear the excitement, or sadness, in your voice rather than mis-reading words online.

As I’m sure you have discovered, e-mail folks set a limit on the size of files we can send – and when we exceed that limit they get nasty and bounce those great photos we tried to send to Grandpa.

This great place lets you upload files as large as 2 gigabytes — and there is no need to register or sign up. You simply upload your file and your link is instantly ready to email to your friends and colleagues. You can upload as many files as you want. Your files remain accessible for as long as they are being used and can be downloaded an unlimited number of times.

Great service and it’s on the house! Just click on the link in the first paragraph.
