Synthetic Reeds Might Be The Answer

Having never played any instrument that required a reed, I never realized what a pain in the neck a reed could be! A natural reed has to be kept moist (thank you bacteria!) and it can warp and crack. Today I have learned about the benefits of using a synthetic reed that won’t warp and crack, and it seemed to be a good idea to me! This YouTube video I was watching (below) addresses those issues and demonstrates the use of the Signature models synthetic reed. I think it sounds great, don’t you agree?

Now this is a pretty neat gift

My father is one of those people that has to know what the 5 day forecast for the weather is so he can plan the next five days.  Well I couldn’t believe it when I found a 5 day Wireless Weather Forecaster by Brookstone. That is absolutely the most perfect gift I can get for my father. It’s also something that hopefully no one else would think to get him.

One year I got him a scale model of an Indian Motorcycle like he used to have and my sister got him the same thing but it happened to be a different color thank goodness. Well I bet that won’t happen again this year.


When Dave told me that Ellie wants a pair of eskuche 33i headphones, I thought it would be easy to find reviews on them (I don’t want to buy anything that has bad reviews) so I went to YouTube (which is a place I tend to trust for reviews) and was disappointed (and frustrated) that I could not find any reviews on that particular set. On top of that, they don’t seem to be “in stock” at my favorite music supply website! So I guess I’m going to suggest to Dave that he ask Ellie if she has another choice that she would be happy with!

Mother’s Day

Well Mother’s Day is this weekend and I am getting a surprise ready for my mom and my boyfriends mom. I have invited them out to breakfast on Friday and we are going to meet here at my house. After breakfast I am taking them to a day spa for a full day of “the works”. My father and my boyfriend have helped pay for it. I am paying for my mom, my hunny is paying for his mom and my dad is paying for me. That helped a lot for sure. We all get to have a relaxing day and enjoy ourselves. I am so looking forward to this.
