New carpet or wood floors?

Well after the major leak last month with the water heater, I have noticed that the carpets smell and even having them cleaned has not helped. I am very sensitive to smells and it just won’t go away. So I am going to pull them up, but I can’t decide if I want carpeting again or wood floors.

On one hand, I love the carpets in the winter because you can’t feel the cold floor. However, wood floors are easier to keep clean and in the event of some kind of flooding like before, they are easier to dry. Of course, then I can get some throw rugs to have around that will compliment my different rooms and look really good. So the entire floor wouldn’t be bare at all.

If I go with the wood, and it looks like I probably will, I have to decide if I want a traditional wood floor or squares. Should I do it myself or have someone else put it in? From what I understand they are not difficult to put in and my brother says he will help if I decide to go that route. I will have to decide soon because I cannot take the smell of mildew any longer.

Les Paul Deluxe

You would have to be blind not to see and appreciate this Gibson 2015 Les Paul Deluxe Electric Guitar  that I have been eyeballing for some time now. This not only looks fabulous but sounds awesome as well.

I should know, I have actually had the opportunity to play one at the at guitar center hollywood hours that is so well known at our local 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.

Sunburst Is Way Cool

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!

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.
