A Trumpet Case As A Birthday Gift From WWBW

This particular trumpet case at wwbw that I have finally decided on looks like a good quality product at a good price, just in time for me to order for my oldest son’s birthday,  that has just crept up on me this year. At WWBW they don’t charge any shipping fees on the majority of orders and I’ve had good luck with them in the past so I hope that they pull through for me again this time around.

They have such a great variety of trumpet case that have a wide variety of price points to please just about any type of budget that a customer could ask for. They also offer special discounts of educators which I think is the cherry on top for this company! I guess this is one good reason that they have been around and in business for well over 35 years.

As my kids grew older it seems to get harder to find and be able to afford presents that they will actually appreciate and use. This case has been on his wish list since before Christmas. I’m glad that I remembered just in time.

Parenting Discussions

Last week I discovered a discussion board about parenting. The very interesting part of the board is that the users are separated geographically, with one board for parents in New York City an another board for parents in San Francisco. Evidently, plans have been made to bring on more cities in the near future.

In the meantime, it is amazing to read the different attitudes between parents on the two coasts. This is beyond mommy blogging and quite an introspective on mothering differences. And, of course, I have opinions on several of the topics, so I have made a few tentative posts to see if my thoughts are received well or will I be flamed for my opinions?

Blender Drinks

When I was young and frisky, blender drinks meant an alcoholic beverage that we ordered from the bar while catting around the bars and clubs on the weekends. A blender drink was usually a Daiquiri or a Margarita, served in large stemware with fruit garnishes and sometimes, if you were lucky, even little chinese umbrellas spearing the fruit and resting on the edge of the glass.

Nowadays a blender drink means a healthy substitute for a meal. I use fresh orange juice and crushed ice as a base, and add whatever fruits and sometimes vegetables that I have on hand, usually at the least a banana and strawberries. But it can be apples, pears, blueberries, blackberries, or grapefruit.

If fresh fruit is hard to come by, I pull a handful of something good from my freezer or dump a can of something packed in light syrup from the pantry shelves. A few minutes in the blender and I have a tall cold drink that I can take with me on the run. It isn’t hard to come up with nice looking garnish that is good for your health as well.

For A Fleeting Moment In Time

It ‘s just that as much as I love music, I just don’t know all that much about reading music or playing any of the musical instruments that are designed and made to make beautiful music. So when my daughter started asking me if she could get a guitar and start taking lessons I was floored. She has her eye on a few guitars at musician’s friend, but to be honest I just don’t know if that would be the best way for her to go right off the bat.

I don’t mind getting her a guitar but I really don’t want to invest more money than I have to before finding out the whole story as well as having concerns that she will lose interest and I’ll be left holding the whole bag, the guitar, the all mighty 22 watts amp along with all the other pieces of that brief time that my daughter expressed such an interest in learning some type of musical instrument or learn how to sing!

A New Beer For Women

I just heard about a new beer that is being promoted in the state of Maryland specifically for women called Chick Beer. Now how cool is that? It is supposed to be a premium light American lager, which sounds perfect for what I like in a beer. I can’t wait until it hits the grocery stores around my area, I’m anioux to give it a try because I am also told that they are going to be donating a part of their profits to charities that are out there that are helping to empower women and I’m totally down with that!
