Read Full Reviews At Musicians Friend

Whenever I research an item via the Internet I always take the time to  read the full review articles that are written for consumers such as myself. I really appreciate it when they provide positive as well as the negative.

Not all companies do them both so when I was looking at the Musician’s Gear TRS – TRS Patch Cable 8-Pack (17″) Right Angle items that musicians friend canada has to offer I was impressed that they provided both types of reviews as well as free shipping and handling as well as being marked down  to a crazy low price that you just can’t beat that with a stick!

Strong Steel Shelving

My Uncle James has always wanted to have his own garage/shop in the backyard of his home, and had been planning to build it on his own for as long as I could remember.  Well  in the middle of June last year he came across a little extra money and began making his plans a reality, and had asked me to look around to find good, sturdy shelves for him to store all of his belongings he needs to have in the shop.

I began my search right away while he was in the process of building it, and found a few good deals and such but nothing that stood out, until I jumped on the net and came across an awesome site that offers strong steel shelving for a great price.  I told my Uncle shortly after finding the perfect fit for his needs, and he was so excited to order them that he didn’t wait at all, he jumped on the computer while still on the phone with me and ordered them. With a lot of hard work and time invested, he finished up his garage/shop and was very happy he could start getting some work done in his own space with strong, and sturdy steel shelves he can rely and depend on for a life time.

Many Used Alto Sax Choices

Wow the price range for a used alto sax is certainly a wide one. With so many choices, the Libra in me is finding it a daunting task in trying to decide on which one would be the best fit for my cousin as well as my wallet! And not knowing all that much about this particular musical instrument put a whole new spin on it. But I have to say that I put my “big-girl panties” on, went online with the guitar center chicago website that is so user friendly and their sales representatives were spot on so we managed to get her done!

It really didn’t all that long to finally come to a decision, place the order and place a check mark on my Christmas shopping list of names and move on to the next online purchase. I know it sucks to start even thinking about Christmas, but let’s face it is less then 100 days before Christmas!

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.

Good Tunes

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”.

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.
