The Crunching of Numbers

Adding fractions has always given me problems, actually any type of math has always given me problems. 4th grade math and 5th grade math was a real huge struggle for me. I actually had to go to summer school one of those years before graduating to junior high. That really screwed up that summer for me and I started working extra hard after that so that I’d never have to do that again.

Back then we didn’t have the Internet to turn to. Now a days students can find tutoring on their computers, how cool is that? A handy dandy online Algebra solver would certainly come in handy for this kid back then when I finally got into High School. At this point in my life I depend on my calculator to get me through the day!

Cardiff Castle

Looking around online just a bit learning some of places in the surrounding over in the U.K. that a group of the family is planning on visiting in the near future, if we can work it all out. I have to say that Cardiff looks pretty cool. I’d love to visit the Cardiff Castle that was built by the Romans, who were the first people to settle the area owing to its strategic location at the centre of three river systems, set up their original wooden fortification in AD 55 high atop the hill overlooking Cardiff.

This castle has over 2,000 years of history that they are willing to share with the public, with tons of events for everyone who visits and tours the castle and it’s grounds.

I just checked the weather there, it is sunny and in the 50’s, pretty much the same as here!

Satellite Versus Cable

When I first moved into my new home, it was cable ready, but I knew from the start that I would prefer to subscribe to a satellite company instead, which I switched to immediately after all of the final paperwork was signed, and everything said and done, in the closing of the house. For the most part I have been happy with satellite, it has been just recently that I noticed an increase on my monthly bill and due to a lot of the high winds that we have been experiencing here, I have lost our signal a whole lot more than usual.

The main issue I have right now is the selection on movies that they have to offer as of late, on their Pay Per View Movies, the last couple of times that I have wanted to just kick back and order a movie just by clicking a few buttons on the remote, their hasn’t been much of a selection that I find appealing enough to order.

Karaoke Music at Ace Karaoke Accepts PayPal

My nephew, Billy, really has taken his time and put a lot of thought in to how he is going to spend the Birthday money that he has accumulated throughout the week. Some people put some restrictions on what he could use their gift of either cash or gift cards, but I gave him the total freedom to do what he wanted to do with it, which works for both of us each year. I actually sent him money from my PayPal account to his PayPal account and he is using his PayPal account for more and more of his online purchases, I know that I rely on PayPal for a ton of transactions and more websites are accepting PayPal which is always a plus for me.

The vocopro karaoke at Musicians Friend, which is where Billy is doing some of his shopping at accepts PayPal, of course along with the other major credit cards. Billy sent me the link to this karaoke music online store to show me what he was considering ordering from there, which I thought was nice of him.

He really is a good kid. I’m so glad that he is into music, all types of music, not just the junk that they are producing and playing these days. I like a variety of music and appreciate all types of music. So many teens get sucked into the music that all the other kids are listening to and what they are surrounded by and don’t give any other type of music a chance. Unless of course their parents listen only to country music, whether it be in the house and/or in the car, this kid will be at least exposed to a different type of music, which hopefully opens doors to other types of music. Music is Life and Life is Music.

 

 

Gaylord Spings for Great Golf

Being the avid golf fan, the past time has become a weekend ritual for myself and son. Each Saturday we head out to our favorite greens, the Gaylord Opryland Resort Golf Course,Gaylord Springs. It is such a great place to get in a terrific game of golf, and during the last several years of my playing, those sharing their love of golf have became great aquaintances.

My wife does volunteer work each weekend, so she is always hassling me to remember to set the security choice alarm before I walk out the door. Once this is done, I am lost in my world of golf for the remainder of the day. She always love to hear my stories of the great game I played today!

My game gets better with every weekend that I am out there playing. Although most say no, I still think I could be as good as Tiger Woods one day. The golf course at Gaylord Springs is 18 holes, with a clubhouse that wil take your breath away. I think playing there will help me play like him one day.
