If I have any options to review a product and/or service, you can bet that I will be utilizing every type(s) that I can get my hands on. It’s a whole new world out there. It’s amazing to think that we managed to live our lives without computers. At some point in the late 80’s we have become more and more reliant on what used to be referred to as the World Wide Web. I mean when is the last time you have even heard the words World Wide Web?
With all that the Internet has to offer almost all of us in the 21st century, it still surprises me that there are still some of our senior citizens who are bucking, kicking and screaming all the way to any computer who just can’t wrap their heads around even some of the most basic functions, even explaining all that they are missing by not using e-mail can’t entice some people to get on board.
My grandmother was a bit slow at getting used to the whole computer concept, but it didn’t take long once she starting realizing how useful it can be. One of the advantage that came into play during the holiday gift buying season. She actually took her time and checked out different acoustic guitars that she found at one of the major music websites that have just about anything that is musically related. It seems that a friend and neighbor told her about Musician’s Friend, which Grandma felt safe enough to go online, find a particular buying guide and actually ordered a wonderful guitar at a great price. Free shipping is always a plus when ordering anything online.
Last year was such a great holiday season for the family. I can only pray that this year works out just as well. The Martin guitar that I got for my kid sister was such a big hit with her. I am not sure what I could possibly get her this year that will thrill and delight her just as much. But I know that her expectations are high and I don’t want to disappoint her. She deserves the best of everything.
I have been thinking that she might like a gift card so that she can buy some type of accessory for her guitar. Maybe a new travel case, or a Capon, or possibly some type of a new special effects item . Part of me thinks that boss me50 Gift cards are a great option. But honestly, a gift card does not give you the thrill of opening a present and holding something fabulous in your hands right then and there.
If it was up to me, I would give everyone a gift card and be done with it all with one full swoop. But for my kid sister, I’ll make an extra effort.
I have never really checked into a lot of “holidays” that are written on the many calendars that I rely on to keep me on track and on time. When I saw that today was “Flag Day” down in Mexico I felt the urge to see what the Mexican flag actually looks like and to find out a bit more about about it (which was zilch).
Sorry, I haven’t been posting much since the Holidays. They went by so quickly but took so much time to prepare for. It doesn’t seem right that Christmas should be one day, or one morning actually. Seems we should have more time to relax, enjoy, and spend time with our families. It feels that the true meaning of Christmas has been lost in the hustle and bustle, of the finding the perfect gift, and preparing the perfect meal.
Christmas has changed so much in my lifetime. As a little girl, we’d go downtown and look at all the big department store windows. They would have mechanical displays that were simply adorable. Wish my kids could see what I saw.
Anyway, I am back and will be blogging more. Happy New Year Everyone!
To be perfectly honest, I had absolutely no idea what any of the Luna Guitars were, much less – where to find a good one at a decent price. I am glad I discovered the WWBW’s website, which gave me many options and ideas to toss around before making a final decision. I mean really it’s already December for heaven’s sake. Christmas seems so far in the distant that I just can’t seem to get into the mood of thinking of anything that goes along with the holiday season, but I am a procrastinator.
I think if my two sisters pitch in as well we can purchase an affordable Luna Guitar much like the one below for Jason for his birthday, which unfortunately falls on Christmas Eve. Poor kid gets robbed of his birthday every year no matter how hard anyone tries. He is a good kid and we want to make sure he gets a good gift this year. Being 13 is hard enough.
Hosting your own website can be a challenge if you have never done it before or have a lack of computer knowledge. Personally, I am not a computer guru so when I decided to jump into the world of technology I decided I better get some help.
Recently, I have been taking some classes on horticulture and wanted to be able to share this information with others. I absolutely love gardening and constantly yearn for new knowledge about plants. One area that fascinates me is new species of plants. I envy the horticulturists out there that are able to create and breed new plants. One new species I currently am researching is what the article called bleeding tooth fungus. The plant is very cool looking. The plant is pink in color like the gums on a human and drips blood- colored liquid. I am not sure if this plant is toxic but I imagine it must be. The more brightly colored plants are the more poisonous they usually are.
My new website will be produced by a web hosting company. They have been very helpful and have given me the confidence ot continue my goal of spreading horticultural news to the world.
This is our song. It is almost exactly what I said to him all those years ago. I was amazed when I heard this the first time. I couldn’t believe that someone had written a song so close to what happened with us. It’s heartening to know that I am not the only one with this scenario.
Although it is still summer, I can’t help but think about how winter is right around the corner and all of the things that come along with the winter months. I am not a fan of winter. The cold, the snow, the icy roads and then of course there is always all of the holidays that come along with winter. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.
Now is a good time to start thinking of who I am going to feel obligated to purchase Christmas presents for and how much money I plan on spending on it all. I am going to start now. There are a lot if things on sale right now because stores are trying to get rid of their summer stock and make way for items that are needed for back to school and for the cold weather that we all have to prepare for.
Last year I managed to purchase every single gift online. I got a lot of my shopping done at musiciansfriends website since so many of my friends and family are into playing music. I didn’t have to actually go to any of the old brick and mortar stores, except for the food items that I needed for the various family holiday dinners. I would love to be able to brag about doing the exact some thing about for this year’s celebrations.
Shoes have always held a special place in my grandmother’s heart. She is always looking at the newest shoes on the market. Many of the ones she looks at she would never be able to wear but she still enjoys looking at them.
One type of she really likes is the Minnetonka shoes. They have many styles on moccasins. All colors are nearly available including with or without fringe. My grandmother isn’t especially concerned with fringe but she does like the color purple. I am not sure if she has any purple moccasins but I’m sure she will soon.
Frye shoes, I do not believe she would care for as much. I, however, think they look pretty cool. I particularly like the boots. I think I may look into their boots when I get my motorcycle. The other style that I really liked was a pair of sandals from Josef Seibel shoes. They will be perfect for this summer when I go out on the town!
