Calling all Maytag Neptune Technicians

Hi Neptuners,

If you are a Neptune technician and you are tired of getting kicked out of folks' home after handing them a ridiculous $900 bearing repair quote then see http://www.neptunekits.com/special/ where you can order your own Neptune bearing tool kit and bearings in bulk. Offer them a $150 - $225 repair quote instead... Now you can also receive potential future Neptune repair business as well because they did not junk their Neptune.

I get emails from Neptune owners asking if I have any technicians in their area who have the special Neptune Bearing tool. Let's face it, not everyone wants to change their Neptune bearings themselves and would like someone who has the Neptune bearing tool to do it for them.

Well, what are you waiting for? http://www.neptunekits.com/special/

Until next time...

Fleetwood Mac in Columbus - It was a great concert!

Hi Neptuners,

I would not say that I am a die hard F.M. fan but I really enjoyed the show last night. Those folks can still shake the rafters and sound good while doing it! We were in section 102, row Y at the Nationwide Arena among a full house of fans. We must have been in front of a bank of speakers because the decibels were really cranking.

I have to say that Lindsey Buckingham's pickless style of guitar playing was really impressive... I wonder if he would help on my third Neptune song? Hold on... Let's publish the second Neptune song first! Lindsey broke out and really played some great solo guitar sometimes banging on the guitar and looked like he was very pleased after the song was finished from the expressions on his face.

Let's say mick fleetwood can really play the drums as I was looking forward to the Tusk song which has a unique drum pattern. I did not realize how well Mick could play as I am not a avid fan of F.M. Do you want to beat on Mick's virtual drum kit? See http://www.mickfleetwood.com/MFleetwood_project/menu_movie.htm and click on 'virtual Drumming" link. You can just move the mouse over the drum elements or press the number keys. The bass drum is key #3 and is my favorite. The cow bell is there but you can't click on it :>(

The rhythm section was not complete until we talk about the tightness between Mick and bassist John McVie. What is the matter John McVie? You need a website?

It was great to see Stevie Nicks live for the first time, too! I've seen her in videos but never live. Stevie was awesome! She has a unique flowing way about her while she is performing? Watching her eyes makes you wonder if she is really there but she sounded great. Someone in the front row area was trying to hand her a bouquet of flowers during the whole show. Finally, Lindsey picked them up and handed them to Stevie towards the end of the show.

Some of my favorites they played:

Gypsy
Rhiannon
Second Hand News
Tusk
Sara
Landslide
Gold Dust Woman
Oh Well
Stand Back
Go Your Own way

They finished the show with Silver Springs after the second Encore.


What a show it was! Tickets were $160 each with the Ticket Master fee, Oh Well.


Until next time...

The New Neptune Song is just about ready...

I can hear the excitement building about the new Maytag Neptune Song. The www.neptunehelpsong.com already has 675 hits the last time I checked.


I will give you a few hints:

1. It will be placed on my http://www.neptunebearing.com/ site.
2. I will post a poll on this blog so you can vote on it.
3. It will have a faster tempo and have a cajone which adds a nice sound.

In case you are wondering... Here is a cajon you can look at:


Until next time...

I took a vacation recently to New Smyrna Beach Florida

Hi Neptuners!


I just got back from vacation Tuesday morning where I enjoyed a week in Florida. We stayed at the http://www.thepelican.com/, a two bedroom condo on New Smryna Beach. It was in the 80's when we arrived on Sunday, April 5th :>). My wife's uncle owns a condo there and ours was next to his. We had a great time! All of the balconies face the beach and ocean for a great view.







We also visited the http://www.ponceinlet.org/ Ponce Inlet Lighthouse on Wednesday. It was a nice site to visit and we climbled the 203 steps to the top. It was very windy that day.









Of course, we took the 2 little ones and my in-laws to the Disney Magic Kingdom on Thursday and boy was it busy! We stayed until 10:00 pm and had to drive 1.5 hours back to the condo afterwards. The admission total was about $455 for all 6 of us... WoW!




Here I am with my little ones and in-laws...









In addition, I spent alot of beach and pool time in the sun Friday, Saturday and Sunday and yes I used lots of sunscreen... We also drove on the beach in our Town & Country van. I saw a couple of cars get stuck in the sand in front of our condo so I was concerned about the van getting stuck but we did'nt get stuck. The kids had a ball driving up and down the beach with the side doors open!






Bummer, I got a $101.00 citiation, too :>( .... I'm innocent I tell ya!

No, it was not for speeding. I will explain in a later post.


Don't worry, I had 2 people helping me back in Ohio ship the Maytag Neptune 12002535 wax motor repair kits, Neptune Bearing & Seal Kits and the Neptune Bearing Tool rentals while I was out.


I hear that there is another Neptune song in the works... To hear the first Neptune song go to http://www.neptunehelpsong.com/.


Until next time...
