Digital piano reviews

Posted by Malou at 12/08/2015 05:45:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Our son at nine years old is really into the percussion group of things. He loves playing the xylophone and his keyboard. Its amazing to sit back and listen to him playing by ear rather than reading his book of music. But he says to us the songs I like aren't in the book. So we've spend hours tracking down some of the music he likes to play. A friend of mine told me about the new digital pianos but I'm not sure  until I read digital piano reviews. I'm sure he will love it for his Christmas present.

Fish aquarium

Posted by Malou at 12/08/2015 05:35:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Our salt water fish are getting so big that my husband went on craigslist a few weeks ago and bought two bigger aquarium. We always thought that it would be nice to put the aquariums into a custom book case type stand in the living room. So to my surprise I came home and he had the whole stand built. Now setting up the aquariums can take some time with all the new things we have to buy.

Kiss guitar picks

Posted by Malou at 9/13/2015 07:56:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post
About three years ago it seemed like every couple of months we were changing out our guitar strings. The company that we had always bought our strings from had changed over from one manufacturer to the other. And just like an uncomfortable pair of shoes if they don't feel right they don't feel right. So we ended up trying two other brands until we found the right ones for us. At one point my neighbor brought over a bunch of guitar picks. But after using them a couple of times we went back to our kiss guitar picks that we can depend on.

Change in weather

I can't believe how fast fall is on us just like winter to spring it seems to come on so fast. This spring we went from twenty five degrees to seven degrees in two days. Last Sunday we were at ninety degrees this Sunday we're at fifty degrees. Its too bad we didn't have more days at seventy degrees. Lets hope.

GlassWithATwist.com presents custom beer mugs

Posted by Malou at 7/19/2015 08:29:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post
I remember many years ago  as we walked through the state fair my son  pointing out different glass figurines on a display shelf of a custom glass company. The picture on a mug was of two kittens standing on their rear feet swatting each other and each of the kittens were exact images of our tiger kitten.  He was so excited when we bought that mug and brought it home. It still sits in a special place for our memory of our cat that passed away after many years. Glass can be so beautiful and hold so many memories of events through your life. We recently surprised my niece with her name and husband's name and date  of their wedding. She was talking about all the gifts that they received but nothing with the date of their marriage. Besides their wedding certificate and some napkins GlassWithATwist.com presents custom beer mugs is an awesome site that has so many different ways to describe your memory in glass for eternity.

Duck calls

Once in a while its fun to watch Duck Dynasty. It goes to show you in America even a bunch of hicks with a good idea can make millions because I'm no hunter I didn't realize how much money could be made off in a single duck call especially from the duck commander.  Looking in an ad that was sent to us from a sporting good store  I can't believe the prices of a good duck call  could be upward of two hundred dollars.

Aurora 16

My neighbor next door has a few different collections. Besides having his own family band years ago he now collects old band equipment guitars, amps etc. It seems like every other weekend he's dragging something through the side yard to show me. My husband also has quite an expensive collection of guitars. This past weekends surprised my husband with something new. The aurora 16 as they were down in the basement hooking it up I heard my husband laughing with Paul saying I guess  you're going to start buying new stuff now? 

Feeling sick

Posted by Malou at 6/12/2015 06:22:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Lately we have all been feeling sick. And I mentioned to my husband it seemed like the county water had more chlorine smell on it. Sure enough he tested it and its about ten times the normal chlorine level that it had tested about two years ago. So instead of just boiling the water to feel safe we went out and bought some Nestle's  bottled water until the town gets back to him on why the level is so high.

Eddie van halen string gauge

Posted by Malou at 4/05/2015 03:03:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
So we finally figured out a date for the kids and a couple of relatives to come over for a weekend to try to revive  the family band.  After my son telling me  he needs a new foot switch  he also asked if I could buy a eddie van halen string gauge. So far the list of things has grown from one thing to eight new things I have to order. What they all don't know is next weekend I have the electrician coming out to install a couple of new circuits to carry the power that we need for the new amps.

Snack time

Before having our Easter seafood dinner  everybody was ready for a snack after the big breakfast had wore off and I was ready for everybody because I had baked apple strudel cupcakes. They were the hit of the day so far but wait for my seafood to be done cooking.

The Hanger Project Men's Hangers

Posted by Malou at 3/26/2015 07:16:00 PM 2 comments Links to this post
About ten years ago my husband decided to sell his business. He went to work for a global company it specializes  in just  building store fronts. A lot of times when they are constructing  the fronts the owner of the store wants to come up with an unusual interior making his store unique to all the other ones that are out there.  Some of the things that he builds may only take a day to build them but what you don't see is how many hours went into utilizing a designer sometimes an architect and hopefully the ideas that come from the owner of the store. A three day job sometimes requires ten extra trips back to the store tearing out a new built to replace it with another new build.
 
My husband heard the owner discussing the different kinds of hangers they were thinking about using in their store. In a way my husband could understand what the debate was about. Over the years the coats and jackets that I bought my husband a lot of them are very heavy and you need special hangers to hold them to keep them in shape. The Hanger Project Men's Hangers  has very unique hangers  that can accommodate anything  that you might want to keep in shape for many years.

Hungry fish

Posted by Malou at 3/26/2015 06:57:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Our salt-water fish  are becoming so finicky. I ran out of their regular food the other day so I boiled up some fresh clams then chopped them all up and they didn't seem to like that very well. They like their store bought cube shrimp. The next morning I let them starve for a little bit before I feed them the rest of the clams. I guess they figured out they better eat it or go without.
