Les Paul Online

We were so tickled to find that they have found a teacher to teach the guitar at my kid’s junior high school. There has been such a demand from students the past couple of years to teach the guitar that their persistence finally paid off and there is no a lot of anxious kids ready to learn. I found a good slash les paul pack at musician’s friend online along with various other musical sites that the Internet can now bring to any kid who has Internet access anything that they can dream of in an unlimited variety of options.

a great package deal

I wish that I had taken some type of lessons back when I was a kid. I would love to be able to have what it takes to make music. It’s such a great talent that I admire in anyone that plays any type of instrument.

If it’s not one thing, it’s another

We had a major back up with our water system that made a complete and total mess that took forever to clean up. Well, at least it was clean water and not the sewer.

It was a few minutes ago when I went to the basement to do a few loads of laundry, when I found that my washer and dryer are not at all working! Hubby came down to take a look at it, and had told me that we needed to get a new washer and dryer, Ugh! If it’s not one thing, it’s another unfortunately. Guess I need to go on-line and start comparison shopping right away with the amount of laundry that this family goes through!

The Flute

I can’t help but wonder where in the world my daughter got the idea that she wants to learn how to play the flute. She has gone through several instruments, trying to find the right one for her to really concentrate on and learn. I really thought that she had given up on music all together until last night at the dinner table when she announced that she was finding flutes to be interesting and was feeling the urge to learn how to play one.

When I hear of flutes I always think of Christmas. Since we are experiencing a heat wave right now, just the thought of Christmas was exciting and I found myself really encouraging her to go ahead and give it a try. Hopefully one of these days she will figure out the perfect instrument, it could very well be the trumpet. As far as I’m concerned you won’t know until you try. I think we will start with an inexpensive flutophone that I can order online for only a few dollars!

A Day at the Pool

Today was the perfect day to go to the pool. Everyone slept in a little late this morning. We didn’t get back from the fireworks until nearly midnight and everyone was wired up from all of the excitement of all of the wonderful displays that our local recreation center produced this year, in celebrating the 4th of July.

Happy 4th of July America

Once the house started waking up and everyone had fed their face with some type of nourishment from my fully stocked kitchen. I went shopping yesterday and spent a fortune on items to take with us to the show, things like beer, wine, wine coolers, sodas, Gatorade, bottled water, chips, dips, crackers, cookies, fruits, well you get the point. So the kitchen is now over flowing with munchies that should last all week-end long, maybe.

Anyway, we decided that today was the first nice day that we have had in a while so we packed up all of our swimming pool gear and took off for a day in the sun and water fun. It was great, fun was had by all, even Hubby came along this time, which is rare these days, and now I’m totally beat and sun burned and ready for bed.

By the way, a belated Happy Independence Day to America, may God Bless us all!

NoBrainerBlinds – it’s a no brainer indeed

When we first moved into this house we are now in, we thought we needed to get rid of all the white paint that was everywhere. So we painted room room a different color to make it more comfortable for us to live in. We went nuts over all kinds of really nice piece’s of furniture with matching tables and curtains and and some nice blinds that just fit with the room.

Well my husband and I were thinking about upgrading our window wear and try to make it unique as possible, so we got on to the computer in search for window blinds that have our style we were looking for. We came across a company called NoBrainerBlinds that sells unique window blinds, and we were so amazed on how fabulous these blinds were. Each and every one of them were very much unique.

Not too long after ordering, we put up our new blinds and we were so happy with our choices, talk about great service, with wonderful options.
