Takamine Jumbo Cutaway

The Takamine GJ72CE-12 G Series jumbo Cutaway 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar that I just ordered online will arrive well before I need to get it ready for shipping out to my nephew in Arizona. This will be first summer that he will be spending in their new home, so many thousands of miles away from the rest of the family that has a traditional Memorial Day Weekend gathering.

I want to wrap it up nicely and ship it to him as soon as possible as to avoid having to rush at the last minute, as I usually do. It’s a good thing that this company doesn’t charge me the shipping and handling costs to get it here to me.

A nice looking piece of work, wouldn’t you say. Next on my list is going to be to find a good priced peavey classic 20 amp that will be able to blow the paint off of the walls!

Eating Out, Saving Money

I know how important it is for my mother to get out of the bed/recliner so I have decided that we can go out for a meal once in a while as long as I find some place that won’t break the bank. There are a tons of specials, deals, coupons and discounts out there available to the people that know how to get the best bang out of their buck by using all that the World Wide Web has to offer.

So today I spent a good amount of time looking online to see what I could find as far as local restaurants go and find some good deals to take advantage of during these couple of weeks that I have scheduled to stay here to help my mother nurse her way back to the best health possible. I did find a few sites that were for real and I am now armed and dangerous with all kinds of deals that we can go out and enjoy.

With this heat wave going on the last thing I want to do is cook a hot meal at the end of the day, so eating out is the best plan that I can come up with and I do believe that it will do us all some much needed justice these days.


Each Wednesday morning my sister and I attend a small business networking meeting that is held at our local Country Cooking restaurant that starts at 8:00am, which is way too early for my taste. I am and always have been a night owl and I really don’t like getting up early and going anywhere that early, but we really get a lot out of those meetings and it gives her and I a chance to spend some good quality time together, I just wish that these meetings were at lunch time.

This Wednesday we are scheduled to have a guest speaker that will give a presentation and talk to us about how important small business marketing is and how to utilize and maximize local search engine optimization options that are so important in today’s world that is now all about the World Wide Web.

It is becoming clearer and clearer that the local Yellow Pages isn’t the way to go these days. So many people think that just because they have a website that their website will bring them tons of customers but little do they realize that their website needs tender loving care and upkeep in order to bring in business. And we both want to learn what it will take in order to get our website in the best working condition possible.

Our brother, the computer geek, has taught us a few tricks of the trade but we really need to hear and talk with a professional in order to really get things going the right way for us. Times are hard and the right way to advertise is very important for business large and/or small. It should be an interesting morning that I guess I won’t mind too much getting up so early to attend this time around.



Auntie Is Coming

Since my daughter and I have to leave this Friday to head back home because her school’s Spring Break is finally over, I have been really freaking out with the thought that my folks still need someone around to look after them. My mother is insisting that they will be fine, but I’m not at all convinced that this is true, so I wish thrilled when my Aunt Becky phoned this morning to talk to me about her coming and staying with them in my absence for a while.

She won’t be able to get here before we leave but hopefully will arrive just a few days after, so with that said I can quit worrying about leaving my folks all alone and start worrying about other things, because worrying seems to be something that I am quite good at.

Pumped Up Kicks

I’ve heard this song on the radio and always find the beat so up lifting that I end up bouncing around while listening to it. I finally wanted to know more about it and needed clarification on some of the words so I went to YouTube.com and found it. I had no idea that this was such a dark song and that the artists were singing about such violence.
