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.

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.

One of our dogs went missing 2 days ago. We have spent the last couple of days searching the woods and the neighborhood, calling everyone that we have a phone number to in the neighborhood searching for our beloved adopted Squeakers.

Last night the phone rang and it was a lady that lives over 5 miles away, informing us that our dog was in her back yard looking very tired, hungry and thirsty. We hauled ass over there and found our Squeakers in pretty sad shape but safe and sound.

What nice people they turned out to be. They went the extra mile to find out who this dog belonged to and made the effort to contact us and take care of our dog until we arrived.

I love hearing from my best friend who moved to Texas almost 4 years ago. I miss her so much, we have been best friends since the 4th grade and you couldn’t ask for a closer and better friendship then what we share. Thank goodness for cell phones, email and Instant Messaging, that way we can communicate almost on a daily basis. We always have so much to talk about, it amazes us both that we don’t run out of things to say to each other.

She bought a Chevrolet Silverado when she moved down there. She wanted a new and reliable car to depend on while finding her way around her new home town. She has found the need to find a reliable car repair and service center in order to get a brake job done that she knows is needed on her fairly new car. The Internet has made that task a much easier one to tackle. She found a great site at repairpal.com that has assisted her in finding a good Dallas auto repair shop.

She isn’t married and has no one to turn to for help with car issues and she needs to make sure that the place that she picks will do her and her new car good, all the way around. With vehicles it is a never ending battle keeping them up and running. I wish her luck.
