Electronic Drums

I’m sorry but I really have never heard of electronic drums until I went online at www.musiciansfriend and found some to check out. When the heck did electronic drums come out? Where was I when this happened.? Not that I have a vast knowledge of musical instruments, but I have had a love affair with drums all my life.

I really wish that I had taken drum lessons as a kid. I did take piano lessons for two summers but gave up on that and was not happy with my parents when they told me that I couldn’t change from piano to the drums. I still hold a resentment about that but have kept it to myself all these years.

Thomas the Train

What is it about the Thomas the Train movies that grabs the attention of kids everywhere? They are nothing more than a man reading a story book out loud, like any parent reads a bedtime story. And they are in British words and phrases, easy enough for an American to understand, but obviously different from what the kids here are used to hearing.

My grandson absolutely loves anything that has to do with Thomas the Train. I can send him any present – a book, a new train, a sticker book – that has Thomas on it and he loves it. I even found a website for him to play Thomas games and watch short Thomas the Train videos on the internet when he comes for a visit.

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.

Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Pickup Bridge

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!

I Love Roses

In high school, I was able to find a part time job after school at a local florist shop. I loved that job and still love flowers – very easy way to score big brownie points with me.

In fact, I’ve worked for several different florists for short periods of time over the years. At the major holidays they are usually glad to have experienced help and I enjoy the hub bub, helping out, and being around the flowers and plants.
