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.
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?
One of the Big questions these days is about the affordable health care act that will affect each and every one of us here in the good old U.S. of A. Going online can be a great resource for this issue. I have found a great affordable health insurance website that folks in North Carolina can turn to for all of their insurance questions regarding this affordable health care act as well as other health insurance concerns.
This website is nchealthagency.com. My best friend lives in the beautiful state of North Carolina and we share a lot of information via emails and Facebook. The 21st century has truly made communicating a much more interesting, easy and fun way to learn things and to keep in contact with people from all over. So if I can help her by sending this info about this particular health agency nc then so be it.
When I first starting watching this video that was sent to me today in an email I just wasn’t in the mood to sit through yet another You Tube video, all though it clearly states that it is less than one minute long. I’m glad that I sat down long enough to watch it. It picked my spirits up and has kept me grinning all day when I think of it.
A friend of mine decided to email me and tell me what she believes is the best way to remove a tick. This is great, because it works in those places where it’s some times difficult to get to with tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark hair, etc. Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20), the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.
This technique has worked every time I’ve used it (and that was frequently), and it’s much less traumatic and easier for me. Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can’t see that this would be damaging in any way. Wish I had known about this sooner and I hope that I can remember it when and if it happens again.
