The Personalized mailboxes that are popping up all over the county are really entertaining, unique, interesting and most times tasteful. These wonderful custom mailboxes are a great way to express your individual lifestyle and tastes as well as making your address more easily located when 911 is called for emergencies. We still hear on the news once in a while how a person wasn’t saved because the firetrucks or ambulances couldn’t located the property, which is just a shame.
Today mailboxes and posts come in just about every shape, size and color and in a variety of price ranges. One thing that a lot of people don’t know is that once you install your mailbox and posts it becomes property of the United States Post Office, something that I learned the hard way when I was putting flyers in people’s mailboxes advertising a yard sale. Man didn’t I get a bawling out from a neighbor who used to work for the U.S. Post Office. I still avoid this particular neighbor to this day because he got so nasty with me that day. But now I know not to put anything in or on a person’s mailbox.

The subject of secure mailboxes came up at dinner again last night. This is a subject that seems to keep popping up more and more and it appears that I just might have to start looking at locking mailboxes here real soon. Every now and then a neighbor will complain of someone vandalizing or worse yet stealing out of their mailbox and with the ever growing threat of Identity Theft these days, this just leaves all of us a bit unsettled.
I really love our current mailbox, my kid brother made it in his shop class and gave it to me for my high school graduation gift, which really touched my heart. He is my favorite of all of my brothers, and I have six of them, so replacing this special gift for a bigger and better safe and secure mailbox just isn’t going to be easy. Which is why I keep putting off buying one.

I’ve been cruising around the Internet for the past few months, looking for the perfect mailbox since my current one is in such a sad state. Mailboxes are important not only to assist your postal carrier in delivering your mail, but Mailboxes also help the police, the ambulance drivers as well as the fire fighters that would need to locate your address ASAP. So it is important for all mail boxes to have their information easily readable.
Justcommercialmailboxes.com is a major distributor of good quality Commercial Mailboxes, Apartment Mailboxes and Cluster Mailboxes along with the necessary accessories and replacement parts that are unique and affordable for CBU Mailboxes. I really like that they accept PayPal, I use my PayPal account for all of my online purchases if I can help it and have been doing so for many a years so I’m glad to see that more and more online orders are being made available utilizing PayPal. It is a free service that a lot of people are turning to and it has many advantages for today’s increasing numbers of online shoppers.
Anyway, it sounds as if I’m promoting PayPal here and that wasn’t even the point of this post. LOL! I will be ordering one of the couple of Mailboxes that I’ve narrowed the search down to. I just can’t seem to make up mind and commit to a particular one. Some times I go through these stages, it is the Libra in me, or so I’m told.

At some point I really would like to see a nice set of stainless steel fireplace accessories along side my fireplace, I really like the look of stainless steel and would like to have more of it around the house, it could really drastically change what the place looks like. The Stainless Steel Store has a fantastic selection of stainless steal products, all made by blomus, in which I have been browsing through, as of late. One day I will have this old place turned around and looking a bit more updated and modernized.
The outside could certainly use some work also, of course and I have been looking at their many blomus stainless steel mailboxes as well. There is something about a stainless steel mailbox that seems to trip my trigger and I look forward to actually deciding the perfect one with the right look made by blomus. The Stainless Steel Store really has gotten my attention, with unique stainless steal items that I’d like to see around here at their website of Thestainlesssteelstore.com, a good site to look around at.

I keep forgetting that my niece is only 11 years old and that there is so much that she doesn’t know that I just assume she knows. Like we were driving by the apartment complex that we always pass on the way to take her home from spending the night at my place last night, when she asked me what these pieces of equipment were that look much like the photo below.
When I told her that they were cluster mailboxes, she looked at me like I had come from some alien planet. It was hard to keep from losing myself in laughter, since I was behind the wheel and driving on a pretty busy street at the time. Bless her heart, she just couldn’t picture in her head that the people’s mail that lived in those apartments were placed in these types of mailboxes. Oh to be so young and innocent again…….
