I do not believe that it is a coincidence that Google Glass is available tomorrow for the general public. They have announced that for one day only they are going to open up the e-commerce store to sell Google Glass for $1500. It just happens to be tax day.

Now don’t get me wrong… buying a pair of Google Glass on tax day HAS to be more fun than paying taxes. There’s not a lot of things worse than taxes, right? I’m certain that a Google employee has already figured out based upon search history and their ‘big brother like’ profile of google users WHO will buy tomorrow.

What about the rest of us who don’t see the purpose or are a little freaked out at the idea of wearing Google Glass around in the world? What are the REAL implications of people walking around with a camera hooked up to their world surroundings?

I wonder if any landscapers are gonna be early adopters in Google Glass? Do you think you’d wear them as you’re cutting grass and maintaining yards?

But there HAS to be a better way to spend $1500… right?


Here are just a few.

Don’t forget Man’s Best Friend. Perhaps you should take some of your tax refund and get Stella a Superior Home from Clark’s Woodwork. They range from $50 – $400 (unless you need the XXXXL home… Which is available! 4foot by 8foot custom dog house for $1295.00)


Or perhaps you’re pulling out that lawn mower for the first time this spring and finding out that it died sometime in the last few months. There’s no way that it is gonna be resuscitated and you need to bury it and buy a new one. Might I suggest a Honda Lawn Mower? It will only take $400-800 of that Tax Refund.


And maybe… just maybe, you want to splurge a little of that refund on a zero turn or riding mower this year. Forget the pushing… you’re gonna cut in style this year.

Perhaps you can upgrade to a Cub Cadet!  That’s right! We sell Cub Cadet now!


Maybe you want a front engine tractor for $1800 or a Zero Turn Cub Catet for $2500. These will cut your cut time and make for a more enjoyable Saturday instead of pushing your mower for hours.

Maybe you’re getting ready to go camping with the family for Spring or this summer. Perhaps you have been considering a portable generator that will help you stay connected while getting away. A Honda EU 2000 Super Quiet Generator is a GREAT way to spend that tax return. Much better than Google Glass. And you can get one for less than $1000.

Or maybe you want to have a little more fun with your tax return. There are more fun ways to spend $1500 than buying Google Glass. For instance:

Maybe you should purchase an XL Big Green Egg and Kit for Less than $1300! That will come with a whole bunch of EGGCESSORIES that will make your Spring and Summer much better!

You can even get a Big Green Egg Large Egg and Table Combo for less than a pair of Google Glass! Do you REALLY need to be THAT connected to the internet? Pick up a large table, egg and a bunch of EGGCESSORIES for less than $1500!

Or perhaps a Traeger Smoker is in your future. You can get a Traeger for $500 less than a pair of Google Glass. That leaves A LOT of budget left over for groceries for your Traeger. Pick up a Texas for $999

But… If you do buy Google Glass, Can I try them out?
