Our 2006 Chevrolet Silverado seems to be in need of a brake job, sigh….More money being spent on transportation, will it never end? If it isn’t one thing it is another with the vehicles that we have at this point. It seems that each month one of our vehicles is in need of something or another. My husband is pretty handy with a wrench but today’s vehicles all need the attention of a computer and so many specific tools that he just doesn’t have handy, so it is almost impossible to do anything other than take it to the shop for the required work.

It depends on the vehicle and the credit card balance at the time of the required work. This time I decided to use the Internet and see if I could find a decent auto repair shop online that might be able to assist us with this task. I found a website Repair Pal that allows you to type in your required location, required service needs and the type of vehicle in need and then leads you to companies that are out there that can help you. It was pretty cool actually, I found a repair shop that I had never heard of, so I gave them a call and I have an appointment for the morning. We will see how it all pans out and I’ll keep you posted.

The Animal Planet is doing a wonderful job in bringing attention to the brutality being done to dolphins in many countries with their new show Blood Dolphins. I found this clip on YouTube.com and wanted to share it here. I hope more people watch this show and that it enlightens a lot of good people to the atrocities being done to thousands of dolphins each year.

Checked my email late last night. I was worried that we were going to lose power again with all the seriously extreme weather that we have been blasted with for so long. I made sure that I got all of my prescriptions filled, got a full tank of gas, milk, toilet paper and charged my cell phone, just in case.

I was tickled to hear that the Ableton Software Controller that I had ordered for my brother-in-law’s birthday yesterday, arrived in the mail, and his is thrilled with the gift. You never know when you order something online if it will arrive in time. Usually it does but once in a while something happens, which throws me into a panic. I have learned to order things in more of a timely fashion, just in case.

Any one who knows anything about playing music can appreciate what a good amp can do for you. So I thought that the rivera amp would make a great high school graduation gift for my nephew. He has had a tough last couple of years with his parents splitting up and having to up and relocate, which made him have to finish his high school in a totally different state, leaving his friends and class mates that he grew up with. He even had to leave his buddies that had put together a pretty decent band.

The garage at the old house was a perfect place for these kids to meet and hang out. Most of that down time turned into time for playing music. A lot of his old friends  keep in touch with him via text or Facebook, but we all know that things just don’t stay the same after you leave. We have been hoping and praying that he would make new friends at the new school but so far he has become what you would call a loner, which makes me sad. Hopefully this new amp will pick up his spirits some. I miss hearing him play.

My younger brother was in a band back in Middle and High school with four of his close friends he grew up with in the neighborhood. Over the years as the grew up, they ended up either going off to college or started a family, but none the less they are still the best of friends and still play music and send it to each other over their iPhone’s. That being said, my younger brother has been talking about how he needed to get an interface to be able to record his audio to share with his friends through his iPod or iPhone.

When he mentioned it, I thought about his birthday that was quickly coming up later in the month, so I jumped onto the computer and looked around for some options that were affordable. the words “buy apogee duet” caught my eye and I clicked on it. It took me to the exact item I had in mind for an unbelievable deal. I just couldn’t say no, so I ordered it and had it shipped to his house. When he had called to tell me he had received his gift, I was thrilled to hear how excited he was to have it. I nailed it, he’s been bragging ever since, and is sharing music more then ever to his friends and many more.
