Fender Super Champ Guitar Amp

A very good friend of mine is an inspiring musician and had begun traveling around the US to inspire others with his beautiful music. He recently was given an Eastwood H44 Airline guitar by his Mother last Christmas and is playing it every time I talk or see him. He had brought to one of our mutual friends attention that he is having a financial crisis due to being laid off by his last job a few months back.

Being me I always want to bring a big smile on someones face when they are having hard times, so I thought Id do some investigating on exactly what more he needs to start his musician career besides his new guitar. I had found out from his sister that he has been searching around for a new amp to connect his guitar to, because apparently the one he had was in bad condition and didn’t work half the time, like it was supposed to. I took a few days to search around for one, and came across the best fender super champ xd that was within my budget at Guitar Center.

I ordered it immediately, and my oh my – my friend was so surprised and so overwhelmed that he got an amp for his guitar. He had mentioned that he wanted this exact amp for quit some time now, just had a hard time gathering money up for it since he has no income. After some time of practicing more and more, he had what it took to become a Rockstar and started a band of his own. Today he is in LA, performing and inspiring many. I couldn’t be happier for him, and he constantly says he couldn’t have done it without the help of his Mother and I.

My Starcracks Dealer

For a long time I only ordered one thing from Starbucks and only went there about once a week. I knew that I liked that one flavor and didn’t see any reason to risk $5 on a drink that I wouldn’t like. But after a while I found myself looking forward to going to Starbucks every day and started getting bored with the same old drink. So I took a chance and was surprised that I liked it. But I should not be going so often and I can’t help it.

There is no other place that tastes like Starbucks.

My sister called me today really bent out of shape because of the letter that she received from the I.R.S. informing her of the mistake that she made when she filed her taxes two years ago. A mistake to the tune of $3,000, ouch! I’m not sure how she is going to handle this, but if the whole family has to pitch in to make sure that this is taken care of, then so be it. That’s what family is all about, or at least it is supposed to, guess we will find out here real soon like.


Back To School

School starts September 2nd, the Tuesday after Labor Day and there is much to be done for us both. A few things we have managed to take care of online. We ordered some really cute clothes for her that should be arriving here real soon.

We got most of the school supplies that we are sure are going to be needed. We won’t know what the rest is until we go to Back To School Night where we will get her schedule, meet her teachers and get the supply lists that hopefully will only have a few surprises on them that we aren’t all ready prepared with and for.

We also took care of the guitar parts needs so that she will have her martin om-28 acoustic guitar in best possible shape for her first year of guitar lessons in public school. She basically taught herself how to play and has had several people teach her a few things here and there but she has never had a formal class and is excited to be in a class that she will enjoy instead of one of the core classes that she finds so boring as well as challenging.


Leo the Lion

In the next couple of weeks it will be the start of the astrological sign, Leo. This period goes from July 23 until August 22, so if you were born between these dates, your “sign” would be Leo.

The best thing about a Leo is that they are strong and self confident, often a leader. My brother is a Leo. He always seems to know the right thing to do and I trust him.

The Lion, Leo
