Music Down In Nashville Way

July 13th, 2014

Each time I call my nephew Steve, who lives down in the Nashville Tennessee area, I get such a kick out of hearing his voice on his voice mail. He is a DJ and I swear he has the best professional DJ voice that I have ever heard. This is one person that I want to not pick up when I call, because I always really do enjoy his voice.

Not only does he do a great job as a DJ but he is really good on the drums, which happens to be my favorite musical instrument of all times. I wish he didn’t live so far away because I really miss hearing him play. He used to get together with a bunch of friends and have jam sessions that could and would last until dawn. They were a great group of kids. I hope he still stays in contact with them, if nothing else at least via Facebook.

I hope that Steve enjoys the exciting Roland SPD-SX that I ordered and had shipped down to him. A couple of close family members and I all pitched in together to make sure that he got his dream sampling pad, which he has been wishing for for the last couple of years, but couldn’t manage to save up enough cash to purchase himself. If anyone in the family deserves to have their wish come true, he does.

Swing Dancing, Today’s Social Dances

July 11th, 2014

Spent time online looking for swing dance lessons in my area. YouTube had some pretty cool videos that helped me make the decision to sign up with The Dance Doctor John Casses in Santa Monica in the southern part of the beautiful state of California. I have always loved to dance, but dancing with a partner isn’t always all that easy when it comes to “hand dancing” as I call it.

Check out this video from YouTube and see what I’m talking about and I’ll keep you posted on my progress from time to time.

The Wonder of Junk Drawers

July 8th, 2014

I just couldn’t take it anymore, my kitchen junk drawer runneth over and it will not even close properly anymore, so I pulled up my sleeves and dove in with both hands. Amazing the things that one finds in these types of drawers, located through-out the house, a good amount found its way to the trash can, but I did find some goodies that have been long gone and forgotten.

My one treasurer is a plug-in timer that I can plug my T.V. in at night that will automatically shut it off, hopefully well after I have fallen asleep. I will experiment with it tonight and see how it all works out. Anything that will help reduce my electric bill these days is worth giving a shot.

After finding numerous useful things that had been stashed away for so long makes me wonder what I will find when I finally clean out the closets!

Taking Care of Business

July 6th, 2014

Took a little time the other day to look around a bit online to see if I could find a good reliable fulfillment service company that I could recommend to a good friend of mine that is in need of the type of services that these types of companies offers.  It took a bit longer than I expected because to be honest I wasn’t 100% sure what exactly a fulfillment service did.

I had no idea how many types of fulfillment companies there were, but considering that my friend lives in the southern part of California I do believe that  AMS Fulfillment Services will do the job for him. I sent him the link this AMS and I just got word that he is thrilled with the idea of using AMS and has been in contact with them. That makes me feel good, but you know I really think that that is what friends are for, to help each other, when and if they can. Since I consider myself to be pretty good on the Internet and not everyone that I know has that opportunity, I try to do as much research as I can, when I can. I hope that this works out for him, if not I would feel just awful, but at least I tried.

The First Of The Month Is Here Again

July 1st, 2014

I’m afraid that the beginning of a new month only means that I have a ton of bills that need to be paid. Bill paying is something that I don’t enjoy one bit. I have though recently turned to paying most of them online, which is saving me time and money in the long run, I was a bit nervous at first but every time I do it it gets easier and less nerve-racking.

My sister is urging me to try to do my monthly bills through my bank that offers free online bill paying, but I keep putting that off. I seem to have everything under control the way that I am doing now and am not looking forward to having to input all of the information needed in order to go that route, maybe one day, but not any time soon.
