Professional DJ

When Annie told me that she was thinking about having a friend of hers DJ at her wedding reception, I was a little bit surprised. I happen to know this particular friend, and he is not a reliable person, and he is not a professional DJ at all. I know that Annie is on a budget, but I have a feeling that she just might regret having this person perform that very important function at her wedding. I encouraged her to check out this site I found that was created by a professional DJ company. I hope that by looking at that website she just might re-think her reception plans and hire a professional. After all, memories of the entertainment of a wedding reception are pretty important memories!

Amazing guitar prices

Every now and then I will come across a YouTube video that is about an airline damaging someone’s very special guitar. The general theme of the video is that the airline had employees that did not take proper care of the guitar and the guitar ended up completely destroyed. The guitars were expensive, and perhaps even historical and therefore irreplaceable. And the videos are lamenting the fact that the airline’s employees in charge of handling damage claims of this nature were very nasty.

I’ve always felt that it was awesome that the customer took to the Cloud to bring the issue to the public eye, bringing pressure on the offending company. All of these memories of those videos came to mind today when I was comparing online prices of the guitar that my brother told me that he was thinking about buying. My goodness gracious – I am always shocked by the prices of good musical instruments! No wonder those musicians get so upset when an airline damages one!

Wow, wasn’t I way off base with the thought of how much an electric guitar would cost these days. But seriously I haven’t had much to do with any type of musical instruments other than the little kiddie types that I have around the house for any of the little kids to play with when they come over. I think there is a tambourine, cymbals, bells and a triangle or course. I try to have a variety of toys for visiting children to play with and enjoy instead of sitting them in front of the TV set.

But back to the price of guitars – I was looking at some of the guitars with my sister’s oldest son, Eddie. Eddie just turned 13 in February. I can’t believe that he is now officially a teenager! He has managed to gather up a good amount of gift cards from his birthday and Christmas, in hopes of purchasing an electric guitar soon. I was totally caught off guard to see the price ranges of anywhere between $100 to close to $3000! Of course Eddie will not be satisfied with anything under $400; there were over 40 to choose from in the $300 – $500 range.

Where IS George?

When the clerk at Food Lion gave me change from my twenty, I found a Where’s George bill. I never seem to remember how to log in my “account” on that site, but when I find the bills every once in a while, I do put them in for tracking.

This bill said:

This bill has traveled 116 Miles in 2 Yrs, 188 Days, 10 Hrs, 6 Minutes at an average of 0.13 Miles per day. It is now 116 Miles from its starting location.

The initial entry read this: My name is Isabella and I am four. My daddy is going to use this bill to buy gas on his way to work tomorrow.

Although it is cute to think that a four-year old has a “Where’s George” account on the internet, I doubt this little girl has a clue as to what it is all about. I think adults who make accounts for their kids or pets and then write as if they were the kid or the pet – those people are just weird.

Pretty jewelry online

I really like jewelry. I can’t decide whether I like yellow gold or white gold better, so I try to have a little of both in my jewelry box. I think that white gold, and sterling silver look better on me than yellow gold, but I don’t like how quickly sterling silver tarnishes, and white gold just doesn’t seem to have the same kind of shiny quality to it. So I found myself not being able to make up my mind when I was shopping online and looking at Reeds.com for Kendra Scott jewelry which item I liked better – there are so many pretty earrings to pick from! I wish I could afford to buy them all!
