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.
Most of the gas stations near me have gasoline that is almost up to $2.00 a gallon, I use my Kroger card and get .10 a gallon off but it still takes me a good chunk of change to fill up my truck.
I was really hoping that I would not see gas prices getting this high and I can not understand why we can not get a break on the gas tax from the state. Even a few cents would make us feel better and make us look at the government with a little less hate. I hope gasoline drops soon, it is getting hard just to pay for the gas to get back and forth to work.
Easter has finally arrived! A sure sign of spring! I am very excited for this Easter because I will be visiting both sides of my family and having two dinners! I love Easter dinner. But it’s not just about the food, family and friends sharing the meal are what count most.
I have been busily preparing the dishes I will be bringing to each dinner. Easter morning is going to be super busy. I promised my best friend I would attend her church’s sunrise service and afterwards I have to get on the road. With all the activities planned on Easter I had no choice but to start preparing ahead of time. Desserts, vegetables and appetizers are all part of the menu items I am to bring with me.
The best part of Easter that I am going to enjoy is watching the little ones search for Easter eggs during the Easter egg hunt. They always have so much fun looking for those eggs. The looks on their faces are also a joy when they go to open the eggs to see what treasures are inside. I am not sure who started this tradition but I do not truly believe they knew the impact that would be on the children’s parents. Sugar, is the primary impact I am referring to towards the parents. Luckily for all of us the weather is suppose to be decent and so the solution to the sugar high the little ones will be experiencing is so keep them running around outdoors!
Just a little more than a week until Christmas and the holiday season hustle and bustle in surely in full swing. It came to me today how much Christmas has changed in my lifetime and how commercial it’s all become.
It seems most families spend way too much money for items their friends and loved ones probably don’t really need. Weeks and months of shopping and preparation turns into a few minutes of present opening frenzy. My immediate family takes a laid back approach to the holidays and mostly just enjoy a nice meal and the time together. I’m also sentimental enough to believe that Christmas should be an attitude we have in our hearts all year.
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.
Well the transmission went out on the truck. That really stinks. Transmissions cost a lot of money, unless you get one that is used. Of course, if you get one that is used, there is no telling how long it will last. If you know how, you can rebuild yours, but a lot of people don’t have that kind of skill. I have to do a lot of research today and see what I can find for a transmission. I may be able to find a re manufactured one. That is actually my best bet. It will still cost almost a thousand dollars though.
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.
She is so beautiful. Just look at the color of her eyes, If I didn’t know better, I would say that had been photo shopped. It doesn’t really matter though, because the picture is beautiful to look at.
I have always loved horses. Most girls do as kids, and then when they grow up, become ambivalent about them. I have retained that love and always will have it.
With this cold weather and all this rain, I have a craving for comfort food. I think I will stop at the grocery on the way home and pick up what I need for a nice pasta dinner.
I especially want to get a loaf of fresh baked Italian bread. My favorite grocery bakes the bread right there at the store and it often goes on sale for 99 cents a loaf. I like to cut thick slices of the Italian bread and spread a garlic butter on it, then pop it under the broiler for about a minute to heat the bread and toast the edges. Sometimes I even toss some grated cheese on top of the bread before broiling it.
That garlic bread plus the pasta and a small green salad make a nice dinner.
