Each year I really try to budget the money that I end up spending on presents during the holiday season. This year, once again, I am going to try my best to avoid using any of my credit cards and to do most of my shopping online. I’ve been looking at classic behringer mixers today and was surprised to find some that I think I can afford for my youngest brother’s present. He and I are really close and I know how much he loves his music. You can bet I will have my camera ready on Christmas day when he opens this special gift.No Comments »

I used to love watching Gene Simmons on his television series “Family Jewels” I’m not sure if it is coming back this season or not. One of my favorite episodes was when he performed for our service people. It gave me goose bumps, big time.
I’m so grateful for YouTube, because I found the video there. Check it out!No Comments »
Told my mother that I would look around and see if I could find some cool, different, interesting and exciting promotional products for her and my dad to use at the next Trade Show that they have signed up for in order to get more business generated for the mail and packaging store that isn’t doing so well during these horrible economic times. They opened this store about 8 years ago and it was taking off pretty well at first and then our wonderful government had to go and screw things up so badly that most people are experiencing tragedies left and right. They worked so hard to get this small business set up and working that it just kills me to see them losing money month after month and I really want to be able to something, anything to try and help in any way that I can.
I have been to a few Trade Shows in the past, they are a great way to drum up business and network with other folks in the same boat. I’ve seen plenty of promotional items that I thought were just a complete waste of time and money as well as finding some pretty cool giveaways along the way. I mean we have all seen our fair share of promotional candy, logo pens and pencils, promo golf tees and key chains. I want to find something that will really catch a person’s eye and something that they will really use, enjoy and keep around in order to keep the business name on the front line.
Off the top of my head I am thinking of looking to find promotional stress relievers, we could all use some stress relief these days. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors these days. Check out this cool standing pig stress reliever that I just found online www.buypromosonline.com at . I have always had a thing for pigs, but I don’t think my folks would be impressed so I have a lot of looking around to do the next couple of days.No Comments »
It always seems that we are missing a charger for at least one of pieces of equipment that we have found ourselves relying on more and more each day. I usually just deal with it and move on but sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do and that is to find a battery or charger at BatteryHeads by going online online.
They have a huge selection and so far I have been able to find the exact cord that I am in need of and they get me order to me in a matter of days. It sure beats running from store to store, always starting at Radio Shack in a mad attempt to match up what I need with what they have for sale. Not always the best way to go these days.No Comments »
Have you guys noticed how much better VH1 has gotten in the last few years? I didn’t have it for a while because cable got so expensive but got it back this year after going to www.direc4u.com and looking into satellite packages. The good news is, that channel totally rocks now! I spent some time watching it the other day and there’s a show called Single Ladies which is new and takes place in Atlanta, where I’m from.
There’s also a lot of great reality TV gems on there like Basketball Wives that I love getting lost in after a long day at the office. I can’t believe people make fun of VH1 like it’s some old person’s channel – I think it’s just the kind of stuff I love watching! I’m not huge into TV anyway but if every station was like this one, I think I’d make a lot more time for sitting down in front of the boob tube. At least it hasn’t gone the way of MTV and gotten totally out of control!No Comments »
