Managing all these passwords is driving me nuts!

Well, I’ve done it again.  I changed the password on our WI-FI and I can’t remember what I changed it to.  I’m sure it was something very generic so that I would remember it.  I usually stick with pet’s names.  The password I use the most is a dog I had years ago followed by random number.  But, nope, I didn’t use that this time.  I’ve tried my other go-to’s such as Password, Mom’s maiden name, the street I grew up on.  Nope,  not them either.

We just have way too many passwords to remember and we have to change them so often.  I wonder what the count would be if you counted how many passwords we are actually trying to remember at one time.

When I worked outside of the house, I had so many passwords at work.  Then I’d come home and try to remember the password for banking, or email, or in this case, WI-FI.

I though of buying a small notebook, but I would literally have to carry it every place I go.  Also, there would be a lot of scratching out and changes whenever I had to change a password.  There has to be an easier way.

Tongue Twisters

My father loved word play. He worked on crossword puzzles, loved riddles, and was always challenging the kids with tongue twisters and puns. This is a tongue twister that I don’t remember hearing as a child, but when I found it on Facebook today it made me think of my father. He would have loved this one.

Love My Gaming And My Music

Since I was a young child, I have always enjoyed playing games on some sort of gaming device, whether it is an Atari, a Nintendo, a Super Nintendo, a Sega Genesis, a Playstation, or even an Xbox. My all time favorite gaming system would have to be the Playstation 3, it is by far the best. It has so many awesome features, and not to mention a wide selection of games to play on or offline. I had no idea I would be using it as much as I do, or I would have bought it as soon as it came out.

I use it to not only play video games, but to watch Blue Ray movies, check my Facebook, have video chats with friends and family, download music, watch Netflix and so much more. I have recently located a great woodwind brasswind retail store that I have written a bit about on Facebook as well. I can’t imagine life without Facebook.

I honestly can not wait to see what Sony has in-store for the upcoming Playstation 4. What can I say other then I love my gaming! And thank the good lord for all the various types music (old and new) that we have access to with just a few short key strokes!

Searching Out New Music

Since I rarely listen to the radio any more, how am I supposed to hear the new music? There are new groups and performers coming out every day. I need a way to hear at least samples of the new music to decide if I like it or not.

Amazon has some – if not most – music with a way to sample 5-10 seconds of a song before decided if you want to buy that single or CD. That is helpful, but i wish there was a way to sample a random selection of music over the internet so we don’t have to rely on corporate radio for our new music.

Schecter Guitars

Some of the Schecter Guitars are some great alternatives to some of the more expensive guitars on today’s market. One of these days I swear I am going to order a guitar online and then take a few lessons to see where I stand when it comes to learning the guitar.

What I don’t want to do is sink a ton of money into something that I am so unsure about, but I don’t want to waste my money on a piece of junk either. I think a nice Schecter guitar just might just work. I love the shape, the color and the price of these sweet looking things. If I’m going to go this route I will want to purchase one of the seymour duncan pearly gates bridges that I hear so much about by some of the musicians that I know and have talked to over the years.

Maybe if I get a decent tax refund next year. I really should try harder to start (in a timely fashion) the gathering up all of the paperwork that I need to take over to my step-mother’s house. She does my taxes each year, so far so good. I also love the fact that she does them for free, can’t beet free!
