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.

Push 2 at Guitarcenter.com For Our Family Computer Whiz

It feels pretty weird to get someone that you love and care about a birthday present that you don’t even have a clue as to what it is. I have talked about my geeky younger brother who has turned out to be the family computer whiz that we all turn to with our computer problems these past couple of years. I swear I don’t know why he has decided not to make this his full time job instead of just piddling around with it and assisting the friends and families that utilize his skills and knowledge for free. I understand that he loves his full time job, but he certainly isn’t getting rich by running the local gas station that he has been managing for the past 10 years or so.

All he wants for his birthday  is computer related products and I have agreed to purchase the push 2 at guitarcenter.com for him since it was the last thing on his  wish list that he emailed everyone, which is what our family has been doing these past couple of years when it comes to gift giving occasions. That way we all know who wants what and we can communicate so easily with emails. Who would have thought, ten years ago that we would be relying so heavily on the Internet to keep in touch with each other?

I just hope I got him the right one.

Raisinets

Funny how I was typing about chocolates and just had to find some before going to bed. I found a new bag of Raisinets which have been a favorite of mine for many years. The Nestle company has recently started selling Raisinets with dark chocolate in order to jump on the band wagon that has been getting stronger each year. I haven’t even tried it myself, I’ve very happy with the milk chocolate ones, so why mess with perfection, right?
