The Issue Of Boxers

My daughter is always coming up with something that just seems to blow my mind, but I guess that is what most tweens do to their parents, sigh. Her latest issue is with the under garments that she is currently wearing, she is complaining that she no longer wants to wear the underwear that I have been buying for her since she stopped wearing diapers and she now wants me to buy her boxers, like the one’s that her best friend is now wearing.

I can’t imagine how uncomfortable this girl is wearing boxers under her tight fitting jeans. I have tried to explain to my daughter that her jeans will not fit the same if she starts wearing boxers but she has a strong will (wonder where she got that from?) and a mind of her own and of course I am just her mother so what do I know right?

Guess I pick her up a couple of pairs these weekend and see how they feel to her and take it from there. I’ll bet we will need to go shopping for jeans that will accommodate all that extra material that will be bunching up inside.

Girls Wearing Boxers

Soldiers Dancing the Cha Cha

A friend of mine showed me this video at least 4 years ago. We got the biggest kick out of it and watched it over and over dozens of times. It took me a while to find it again and it still makes me laugh and I wanted to share¬†it here.¬†These guys are too darn cute……

This particular video has to be in the top 5 of my “all time favorite” YouTube video’s!

Rock N Roll Has A Slinky

pure nickel sound

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.

So while doing some idle YouTube surfing, I ran across a video concerning these Ernie Ball 2251 pure nickel 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.

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”.

Actual Crack in a Boeing 737

This is scary for anyone who travels frequently by plane!!!!

Actual crack in a US Airways Boeing 737 window frame! Fliers beware of the sub standard maintenance on the airplanes that you fly on. This is an actual crack that was found in the window frame on a 737. I’ll definitely think twice before flying USAir.


Keeping Your Customers Happy

I really enjoy and appreciate it when I end up in a waiting room, like at the E.R., and they have a Commercial Satellite TV to offer us poor folks that are usually stuck sitting there for at least 6 hours or more. There is nothing worse than sitting there waiting with nothing to do and nothing to occupy your time but a bunch of old, out dated magazines that are usually coated with all kinds of germs from the hundreds of people handling them with all kinds of nasties on their hands.

I’m noticing that more and more businesses are hooked up with the likes of a DIRECT TV Business Account to keep their customers/clients entertained with a touch of class with a nice large screen TV and plenty of channels to choose from. It’s really a nice change that I’m all for these days. We all spend much of our time in waiting rooms and being able to watch TV is a nice change of pace.

Business Satellite TV is much more affordable these days for most businesses and you can get a quote right online for your business if you feel you have the need to keep your customers happy while waiting. It’s all good!
