Divine Twine

For the past several months I drive my sister to her singing/voice lessons which in the part of town that has a good amount of quaint small town locally owned businesses, right at the far end of old town. If I forget to bring something to read and the weather isn’t being user friendly, I always have the option of taking a nice stroll around the few city blocks and enjoying the sights, the smell and the whole “warm and fuzzy” feeling that one gets when walking in the part of town that is just reeking of history, generations after generations of families who worked so hard to make a name for them selves in town and have managed to hold onto their small piece of the world through the good times as well as the bad times.

One of my favorite shops is all about crafts with various twines and paper goods along with packaging and other interesting  baking tools and goods that today’s bakers can just go wild using on their baked goods! I have never been considered a good baker, but I’m not necessarily known for being the best either. I used to have a blast in the kitchen when my daughter was much younger and she actually wanted to spend time with me in the kitchen. Those days are long gone!

My all time favorite was to make and bake various types of Christmas cookies with her to give out to friends, neighbors, co workers and family members. We would even send a batch to school for her to give to her teacher as a holiday gift. We would use the recipe that my grandfather used from back in the day when he still lived in London as a boy. I have made sure that this recipe will never get lost and that it will forever be considered Grand Dad’s Special Christmas Cookies!

Take Your Family to a Place They’ll Never Forget

Have you always wanted to bring your family on a vacation that everyone would love to go on? Do you wish you could afford a few hotel rooms on top of the flights for each of your family members? Well instead of reserving several hotel rooms for everyone to stay in, why don’t you rent a kuta bali beachfront rental unit that everyone can stay in?

This is the perfect way to save some money, keep your loved ones together, and relax in a luxurious villa that will melt everyone’s stresses away. This is how your vacations should be instead of running up and down hotel hallways from one room to the next to visit your loved ones. Then you have to listen to several hundred other tourists do the same thing. Vacationing in a hotel room is not the ideal vacation for you and your family.

This vacation is a special trip for you and your loved ones if you have never flew outside of the United States before. Even though kuta bali is still one of the islands of Indonesia, you are still traveling to a tropical island. This can make it feel as though you are traveling to a foreign country. In a way, you are traveling to a foreign land because you won’t find the scenery and landscapes like these anywhere in the United States. There are so many different things you and your family members can take part in when you vacation to there. With miles of  sandy beaches that you can lay out in the sun on. With your own luxury villa rental unit, you can have your own private beach all to yourself so you don’t have to share it with any other tourists.

When you vacation to a tropical island, you’ll find there are many things you and your family can do during your stay. You can try your hand at surfing the waves, or you can go hiking or visit the local historical landmarks. You can also go boating and fishing if your family likes to fish. Other activities you can take part in include swimming, sunbathing, shopping, dancing, and much more. Great memories that your family will remember for a lifetime!

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.

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!
