Finding The Perfect Boss Guitar Pedals

There was no way that I would have thought it to be such a challenge to find the right boss guitar pedal to give to my kid brother for his 19th birthday, which will eventually come this May 17th. I have  been looking online a bit here and there and I just felt that it was all over my head. I know that he really wants a boss guitar pedal, a tc electronic flashback delay toneprint  but there are just too many of them out there for me to choose from, so I am going to play it safe and give him a gift card for $100 and tell him to find the right one and put that money towards purchasing the correct one that he wants.

There is going to be a good sized birthday celebration dinner at our folk’s place. Not sure how many are expected to show up. But then we never know until it happens with this very large family that is know for last minutes circumstances. It’s such a drag that so many of us have moved so far away and we don’t get together much these past several years. So we will see who turns up to help celebrate Steve’s 19th birthday. This will be that last birthday that entitles him to be called and/or referred to as a teenager! It’s a pot luck dinner so I think that I’ll bring my well received meatballs to share this time around. I haven’t made them in a while and they are always a big hit.

Games For Girls

It wasn’t too awfully long ago that one would have a hard time finding games that targeted the girls that spend a good amount of time playing games online. But there has been a big push to get more games out there and I’m glad to see that it is working.

My 12 year old daughter enjoys all types of games, but there are times that she really wants to enjoy being a young girl, and doing girlie things, so I’m glad that she found a site that is all about  Girl Games at Easygirlgames.com.  She tells me that they are pretty easy, fun and that they have a wide range of games for girls spend their free time checking out. She is getting too old for toys, but still a bit young for boys and still spends most of her time at home, rather than running the roads or hanging at the mall with her friends. So gaming is a good way for her to spend some of her free time.

Sound Great On Or Off Stage

It really thrills me to hear from my youngest nephew Todd that the amplifier for the acoustic guitar is totally appreciated. And that it is being used, along with the beyerdynamic headphone set, so I am told, almost on a daily basis as well as providing a sound great on stage when they manage to actually land a gig.  I managed to get a few of my sisters and brothers, his aunts and uncles, to contribute enough of their hard earned cash together to get him a good quality amp that I found online for a real sweet deal. It arrived in plenty of time and we didn’t have to pay any shipping or handling, so that was a major plus that helped me convince some of these relatives that aren’t known for wanting to spend any money on anyone other than their selves.

It’s pretty cool that over the past couple of years I have been doing more and more of my shopping online. Last Christmas holiday, I didn’t have to go to the local mall or any of the other numerous brick and mortar stores in the area. The only things that I had to go out and purchase were the food and of course the gas that it took to get there and back. There are places that will and do deliver food products but they come with a price. It’s hard to get anything for free around this part of the country, except for online purchases.

Make An Impression With Vistaprint

Who isn’t familiar, by now, with Vistaprint and their very affordable business cards that so many of us have ordered and are using right this minute, some where, by somebody out there. I mean think about it –  having a business card is a very big deal and business is booming for Vistaprint who is well established and well known from all the attention that it has received via the Internet and the TV.

What gets me is that I had no idea that they had other products and items for sale, which I found online at Vistaprint dot com only because I was looking at BestOnlineCoupons dot com, which is a site that I always look at before buying anything online. The have the best coupons and coupon codes, promotions, free shipping offers, all kinds of special offers for online shoppers like myself. So I’ve made it a habit to look there first and I can tell you that I have saving a good chunk of change by getting into that routine.

This time around I found Vistaprint coupons and tons of other listings for savings for Vistaprint orders, like a Vistaprint free shipping code along with some Vistaprint coupon codes that can add up to real savings. Codes are becoming the way to go online these days. It drives me crazy when I order something that I found on the Internet and when I’m filling out my name, address, etc it asks if I have any coupon codes and I find myself lacking one I just don’t feel right and take a peek at BestOnlineCoupons dot com and see if I can find one, most of the time I can, considering the sheer amount of online merchants that they have listed there to be taken advantage of.

Red Skelton

Red Skelton–Patriot and Prophet

Red Skelton was one of the greatest comedians of his time. I used to watch his television show as a kid. He was a great entertainer, but was much more a Christian and a gentleman.

Watch this clip from one of his TV shows from 1969.  He always closed his show with something of inspiration. He was a great role model.

Hope you enjoy this, because he was a “prophet before his time”! This is one of the most touching and patriotic items I have seen in a long time. This one will touch your heart! Enjoy and remember. Help spread this important message:

Red Skelton–from his television show in 1969 WOW! Just think, he said this on his television show in 1969 and really had no clue it would ever come about. SAD, isn’t it? What a wonderful and worthwhile clip to watch and share with all your friends and acquaintances!
