My sister and her kids came over today since the snow storm warranted the closing of all the schools in the area and the kids were driving her crazy around the house. It was a great way to spend the day with them without a bunch of other relatives around to distract me from spending any type of “quality time” with them, like on the major holidays that bring the family together for our family holiday meals. In fact I didn’t have to cook a thing, sis ordered pizzas to be delivered and we just kicked back and enjoyed the day together inside, nice and warm like.
Wow I never knew there would be such a wide variety of Behringer mixers online until I sat with my nephew for over an hour today on his laptop that he brings with him where ever he goes. He is trying so hard to save up enough money to buy a mixer. I asked him to show me what he was talking about. When I hear the word mixer I think of a cocktail mixer! Certainly not anything to do with the music industry! Well I got myself a pretty good education on mixers today and I hope that he can manage to save up enough to get the one that he is so looking forward to getting. Maybe I can get him over here and help out with some work around the place when the weather gets warmer. I wouldn’t mind sliding him some cash to help out.
Each Christmas holiday season I realize what a great concept it is to give people a gift card instead of just some junky gift that they don’t need, want, use or appreciate. One of my nephews really wanted one of the guitar this past Christmas, not something that just one of us could buy for him. Instead we all decided to give him gift cards in the amount that each of us could afford in hopes that he would get enough to be able to save up enough to get him exactly what he wanted.
Now that Christmas is way over and done with, he has found the right one to fit his budget. Now is a good time to buy since businesses are trying to deplete their stock in time to do their annual inventory and get new items ordered and placed on their shelves for the new year’s hot ticket items.
He sent a pic of the guitar that he has placed his order for to all the relatives that helped pitch in and made his dream happen. Or at least it will be in a few weeks when it arrives at his door step.
I have nothing but good things to say about our Direct TV Service, since switching over from our old cable TV provider. My parents kept telling me that I should switch over to Direct TV, it took a while to convince me of course, but I’m glad that I listened to them about this issue. DirectTV has provided me with exceptional service each time I have called on them to do so, not that I have needed to call them very often. Their customer service is great, and I am glad that I can pay my monthly bill via their website, which saves me time and money as well.
My Direct TV System gives me all the channels that I could possibly want and need for a decent enough price. The programming package that I subscribe to is a mid range one and suits our needs perfectly. I mean how many channels does a family need to get for heaven’s sake!
I wouldn’t go back to cable for all the promises in the world, once I find something good, I stick with it and I like to spread the word. I love my Directv Service and would recommend it to anyone looking for good quality satellite service.
The “submit button” was pushed this morning for the pro tools 11 at guitar center that I have been eyeballing online for my kid brother’s birthday on March 30th. He will be turning 30. That is a big deal for most people and he is no different. So we are holding a good sized surprise party that should be and hopefully will be a blast.
He has been wanting this Pro Tools 11 for a while now so I figure I’d try and put a smile on his aging face on his big night. I hope we can all pull this surprise party off. It is really difficult to keep any type of a secret in this family so it will be interesting to see how this all pans out. I hope the weather will be a lot nicer by the end of March, so far it has been cold and windy with lots of rain, sleet and snow.
This is a good video about the Pro Tools 11 on YouTube.
My middle daughter went and got herself hitched up and married a few years ago with a guy from Louisiana. It was unexpected and ended up badly after only a few months. They had moved down to Louisiana to be close to his work and his family and it was a real pain to have to go down after driving for 16 hours and retrieve her and all of her belongings when things went sour. He was a drunk and a druggie who liked to abuse her emotionally and physically and we just couldn’t have that. Besides she was newly pregnant and we didn’t want our first grandchild to be brought up in that type of environment.
We got her back home, she lost the baby and life went on. Last week she got something in the mail which told her about the Louisiana divorce settlement that is in progress which is being handled by the Gallagher Law Firm in Louisiana . It was an emotional moment but it has to be done and over with at some point. There is no time like the present, as the saying goes. It will be nice for her to be free and clear of this guy once and for all. She ended up losing the baby, but sometimes things happen for a reason.
