Classic Rock N Roll

Rock n Roll’s Slinky

I have enjoyed spending my Friday off of work, getting some things around the house done and quite honestly a good amount of time just chilling and spending time on my laptop, while eating up all the left-overs from the past couple of meals.

I hate throwing food away, I can be a real stinker about wasting food. I’m kind of OCD in that way. But then we all have our own little unique oddities, needs and wants in this life time. But that is for another time to write about!



So while doing some idle YouTube surfing, I ran across a video concerning these Ernie Ball 2251 Slinky Electric Guitar Strings that I sorta remember hearing about years ago through some friends of mine that had one of those basement or garage bands before they all got caught up in relationships, careers, health and kids. We still keep in touch, though usually via Facebook rather than jam sessions that we all had such a blast doing for those days gone by.

Nothing too fancy was really needed, a good guitar or two, a decent keyboarder along with the best speakers, usually something along the line of the b-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer  that is pictured below. If you don’t have decent speakers you might as well not even bother. But that is my opinion and I do feel strongly about it.

Anyway I thought I’d post the video here and share what I learned. Figured I’d put it on Facebook as well and share it with some of the gang. I’ll use it as my “topic of the day”.

Breakfast for Dinner

I usually don’t get to eat a nice big breakfast each morning. It is usually on the weekends that I get to take the time to cook up some bacon or sausage and some eggs. Making pancakes or french toast is a nice treat, so I’ve decided to make pancakes and sausage for dinner tonight. A nice change of pace, it’s all good.

Insurance Needs

I know how important it is be have all the necessary insurance that it takes to maintain the quality of life that we have become accustomed to these days. I have been meaning to look into changing insurance companies. I’ve been busy comparing different contracts with my cell phone provider, my home phone provider and my satellite TV provider, but haven’t gotten around to the whole insurance bit.

Having the Internet makes these tasks a bit easier to deal with. I Googled “Homeowners Insurance Somers, CT” to see about finding a better rate with my home owners insurance. I found a company called Paradiso Insurance that has a very user friendly website. One that gives you a “Virtual Agent” to take advantage of and you can get instant quotes right online, which is way cool!

While I was at it I Googled “Life Insurance Somers, CT” as well as “Life Insurance Tolland, CT” and found the same company Paradiso Insurance” up at the top of the list that Google provides you with, so that was nice and easy. I’m all about easy and anything that will help expedite things is a good thing as far as I’m concerned. I’m not getting any younger, but then who is, so I need to have all of my ducks in a row for when my time comes that things are taken care of and life will go on a bit smoother without me around to take care of it all.

Memorial Day

They say that a lot more people are going to be on the road this year for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. It seems that people have cut back these past couple of years so much that they feel that they need and deserve this long weekend and are going for it like it’s now or never. Wish I had plans to do something fun and exciting, but it’s not in this year’s cards for this gal.

Step Up To The Plate

I have to tell you that after the 3rd grade I’m pretty useless as far as math goes. Thank God for calculators, I’d be lost with out mine, I can tell you that. I’ve always been the one to help the kids with there homework but sometimes it can be a bit over whelming and I just have to throw my hands up in the air and declare it an impossibility.

Now that the kids are getting older and are in middle and high school it has really turned ugly. I’m just no good with Statistics help with their Statistics problems that they seem to keep bringing home. Anything but math and we would be good to go.

I’ve been doing a bit of research online in finding a statistics tutor that can step up to the plate and lend a hand, when needed. Tutorvista dot com has a complete line of tutoring assistance from the earliest of grades all the way up to the college years. You can try them for free, to see what they are all about and then sign up for further assistance if warranted.  They offer an unlimited monthly package for a really decent and affordable price, worth checking into.
