Once in a while I will read some type of savings tips 2015 that actually has some ideas and information that I can actually use for my own purpose(s). With the economy still in such crisis, most of us are still trying to make ends meet. So many people are still working more than one job, have sold off any thing that isn’t essential to their existence and our still finding it hard to keep food on the table, a roof over their heads and clothes on their backs. I know of one couple that never gets to see each other because of working so many hours in various locations here and there and barely having any time to see their kids and have a chance to enjoy anything in life that they are working so hard to keep. This just makes me sad.

So much time and gas is being wasted sitting and crawling in rush hour traffic. Once in a while the price of gas will go down a bit but it never lasts long, and never gets low enough to make a difference. It is just a tease to the people that depend so highly on gas to get them to all of the places that they need to get to day in and day out. Right now the price is seeming to go down a bit and of course it all depends on what city/county on how much you end up paying. I know that I try and compare prices when I am on the road and take advantage of the lowest prices when I can. I don’t have a “smart phone” if I did I would could and would use the apps that are currently being offered that tell you the gas prices of the stations that you are close to. I don’t think that I will ever have enough extra money to purchase one of those types of phones and I would be a bit put off to find out that my phone is smarter than I am!

Anyway, I know that a lot of folks are turning the offers being made by the numerous payday loans and cash loan store that are always an option. There was an interesting read on Face Book about 321 loans complaints that was an eye opener. It seems that these companies are popping up all over town. They must be doing pretty well in order to be able to afford the rent that it takes to have a business in town. One store in particular always cracks me up with their female mannequins that have moving arms that are holding signs promoting their services. The wigs and the outfit that they dress them up with are always designed to catch your eye and bring attention to them. I have to say that this marketing idea is unique and must be a lot cheaper than paying real people to stand out in the weather flashing their signs.

Hopefully things will turn around before too many more families are torn apart and lives destroyed. Who would have thought that it would have lasted this long, certainly not I. If all else fails you can always turn to folks like Jeremy Marcus in Florida that have dedicated their lives to helping people in need or you can go online and find that Aegis Legal Center can be reached here, there and just about anywhere these days.

The first time I saw this I about laughed my fanny off! Every couple of months I look it up and it always brings out some laughter from inside me. There are plenty of days that I desperately need a laugh. Thanks YouTube.com

You would have to be blind not to see and appreciate this Gibson 2015 Les Paul Deluxe Electric Guitar Heritage Cherry Sunburst that I have been eyeballing for some time now. This DeeeLuxxxe Guitar not only looks fabulous but sounds awesome as well. I should know I have actually had the opportunity to play one at the music store at the mall. I have been a real good girl this year, I wonder if Santa will bring me one and put it under the Christmas tree for me to find on Christmas morning.

I have always loved hearing the drum. I wish that I could have learned how to play the drums when I was younger, heck I couldn’t get past the first year of piano lessons. YouTube is a great source of entertainment and I found this video that I thought was cool enough to share here showing a young dude playing the drums on his (or his mother’s) pots and pans.

Each Christmas brings back a flood of memories of many of the holidays during my childhood. The one thing that I miss the most is the family music that was always made and played at my great aunt and uncle’s house. Coming from an extremely musical family it only made sense to celebrate with music. Just about everyone played at least one musical instrument and if they didn’t they surely had a great singing voice. If by chance you couldn’t do either you were kept busy in the kitchen and the dining room making sure that there was a steady flow of food and drink ready during the entire celebration. Since I can’t play any instrument or carry a tune, I can only thank goodness I was a kid and didn’t have to partake in that. I was too busy running around the house, the yard and digging the music being played in the living room.

Uncle Earl was my favorite (for a variety of reasons) I can still see him playing his beautiful yamaha sax that he was so proud of. I could never understand how a person could play one of these saxophones. It requires so much breath, surely one could possibly pass out from the lack of oxygen being passed through the body. Actually most of the windwind and basswind instruments require such a talent, a talent that just leaves this person breathless.
