Native Instruments

Since I seem to come from such a musical family (I was left out of that whole loop) I will be spending a good amount of time this holiday season online looking at various musical equipment, instruments and all the wonderful accessories that are available these days.  Not only have I been looking at all these goodies but I’ve place several orders and am anxious for them all to arrive safe, and sound..

One of the better sites that I’ve spent a good amount of time and money at has some pretty terrific Native Instruments that I know my kid brother would just love to get his hands on. I’ve all ready purchased a birthday gift for him, several months back actually, so I have sent him the link to the site on Facebook.

Funny how we really don’t talk face to face much these past couple of years, it’s come down to using texts, Instant Messaging, email or Face Book. The only time I really see him is the few times a year that the family tries to gather for Thanksgiving and Christmas. He just isn’t the type of person that is comfortable around family, he’s pretty much a loner, but we still love him and won’t stop trying to reel him in any time soon.

Around Here

I really like the new led lights that my son put on his dad’s truck for him today. I’m so glad that he his finally starting to show some interest in spending more time around here with his dad rather than running around town with his friends playing their very loud, outrageous music and having their sound activated lights that at times really gets my head a pounding. I never used to be so sensitive to certain lights. I am even noticing that I’m having a harder time driving at night. The oncoming headlights are getting harder for me to stay on the road.

The weather has been delightful and they both have been getting a good amount of things taken care of around here this past week.  Now if only I could get them to help weed and harvest the garden so I could get that under control. I really want it done by the middle of October.

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?

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!
