Online shopping is so convenient

Ever since our local small town has become practically a ghost town, we have been forced to do more shopping online. We have no interest in driving six hours to the big city to purchase a specialty item like a bach trombone mouthpiece can be ordered and delivered to our house with a lot less time and trouble! I prefer to take my business to a local company, but sometimes you just can’t do that!

Saving Money

One thing I would like to start working on this year is doing a better job of saving money. It seems that when I get a check, it’s gone before you know it. My bank account isn’t growing any and I am living from week to week. I was hoping to find a few ways to save money and build a cushion in case times get really hard.

One area where I spend a lot on is food. I eat out a lot and thought that if I could eat at home more often I would spend less on my food. I have also been living high on the hog recently and spending a lot on home repair. I may want to take a little break from that and save some of my money instead. What would be really nice is to make more money in the first place. That would be the best!

Microphone stands for sensitive microphones

When Alicia asked me for a recommendation for a microphone stand that would work well for her sensitive microphones, I headed online to do a little bit of research on the subject. I have to admit (to you) that I really did not know the answer right away! Of course, I did not want to admit that to Alicia! I like to let her think I’m a wealth of information! It wasn’t very long before I had the answer for her, and recommended she look into getting an atlas ms25 stand. The reviews I read indicate that will do the job, and the price seems reasonable as well!


Jackie was showing off his new v6 mixing machine last night. I didn’t realize that he was getting that serious about recording music! That little machine sure does seem to be able to do a lot of things! The package that he bought included a lot of software that helped him to produce and mix songs right out of the box! Pretty nifty little machine, if you ask me!
