Personal Safety Devices

I’m thinking that it may be a good idea for either me or my parents to look into and buy pepper spray for my now teen aged kid sister. She only last week turned 13 and is just starting to get into the social scene, going to the mall with friends, attending a few parties here and there, well chaperoned I’m sure. But none the less I think that she should really consider carrying some type of personal safety device and know when and how to use it, if necessary.

I’m sure that we could find something useful online, and will look into it and speak with my mother about it next time we talk. I’m not there to keep a good eye out on her and it is a wacky world out there and she is a prime target at her age.

RV Covers

My mom and dad have a great RV that is basically a Toyota truck cab and engine and a short stack camper in the back. The camper has a queen size bed, small table and bench seat (that folds out to another bed), tiny kitchen and a full bathroom with shower. This camper is about half the size of the Airstream camper that we used to take on the road when I was a kid, so we call it “The Mini.”

My folks don’t travel as much as they used, so “The Mini” has been parked in the back yard of their summer place for several months, next to the Airstream. I decided that buying RV Covers would be a good anniversary gift for them. The covers are easy to put on and will keep them clean. Their anniversary is next month, so I will check out the covers on Camping World’s web site and see if they have the right fit for the two campers.

I was thinking about doing this for Christmas, but came up with a different idea for that holiday, leaving it an option to fall back on for the other numerous gift giving occasions that come up through out the year.


Lyrics for Rap and Hip Hop

Music is life and life is music, I can’t imagine my life without music, in fact since my mom was a dancer and my father was in a band, I wouldn’t even be here without music. Hubby and I both enjoy all kinds of music and I have instilled the love of all music in our kids the best that we could.

Our teenager has always enjoyed music, like most kids do, and now she listens to this new musical concept called “Rap.” I really am not a fan of this type of music although now and then I will hear something that I enjoy bouncing around to, but not too often.

I was on the Internet the other day and was looking up the words to a song that my father would have me sing as a kid called “Little Sir Echo” and I was surprised how easy it was to find them with all of the sites out there now that help you in your search of song titles and lyrics.

This isn’t the best video that I could find but for some reason it interested me.

Mommy Is Going To Cook Tonight

Today my sister had sent me a few receipts over the Internet that her and her family seemed to enjoy, and I find them to be very different then what we usually eat in my household. My son and I are going to go shopping for the ingredients we need to make something new and tasty that the entire family will love to eat for dinner, plus I think I need to do more cooking, I’ve been slacking in that area lately.

By the way I do love my husband’s attempt in “Southern cooking”, but I do think it’s time for mommy to step in and take charge of the kitchen once again, and have a part in sitting down with the family and smiling and enjoying our delicious new food experiences.

Full bellies before it’s time to go to bed of course, I always say, or you wont have a good night’s sleep. My son had told me that he wants to help mommy cook dinner tonight, which by the way I think is an absolute great and fantastic idea. I can’t wait to try out our new food creations, and hopefully we won’t burn the kitchen down in the process!

Eminence Speakers I Like It Spicy!

People that know me well, know that I do intend like it spicy. Life is just too short to take things too seriously. Music is one of the best things that help entertain me as well as keep me healthy, mentally and physically.

One of the best things my parents did for me was to keep me playing some type of musical instrument and having our next door neighbor willing to teach me on any of the various instruments that I was interested in learning. Mrs. Crandell played just about any instrument and had a great attitude about life and music that she passed along to numerous neighborhood kids through out the years.

Piano was the first thing that I wanted to play and I figured that if I could play the piano it would make the learning of any other instrument an easier task. After I had a decent understanding of the piano and was feeling pretty secure in my self I started with the weekly guitar lessons next door, using her kids electric guitar until I knew I was going to continue and then she would encourage my parents to go ahead a purchase an electric guitar all of my own.

That guitar and the eminence speakers made a huge difference in my life from that point on. One day I might buy another guitar but not any time soon. There are so many types of guitars on the market these days, I wouldn’t even know where to start.

speakers can make or break you
