There Is No Arizona

A country song called “There is no Arizona” was one of the most clever lyrics to talk about heartbreak and longing. I haven’t heard it on the radio for a long time, probably 8 or 9 years. But it sticks in my mind and I often think about Arizona.

I used to want to live there and even flew out there for a job interview with the CEO of new franchise organization. But I just didn’t get the warm fuzzy feeling about Phoenix that made me want to move out there. It is a beautiful city, but not where I want to live if I have a choice.

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.

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

Not Impressed

It just dawned on me that my current contract with my cell phone provider will finally be done and over with come the end of June of this year. I’m going to have to get busy and see what I sweet deals I can come up with in order to get a better cell phone, at better rates and hopefully much better coverage. I haven’t been impressed with Verizon since the day that I signed on the dotted line all most 2 years ago.

Cell Phones have come a long, long way in the past decade or so. I don’t need anything fancy, just a phone that I can text on, make and receive phone calls and maybe use it to take a picture every now and then. No Smart phone needed here folks. I’d be happy with an old flip phone but they don’t make them with a keyboard for texting. Butt calls are so embarrassing.

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.
