Wow the metronome that I remember using back when I was a kid taking piano lessons for the lady who lived on the corner of our street, sure look a whole lot different from the one that I was so determined to keep up with. I hated those piano lessons, but my mother insisted and for three long years once a week I marched myself down to the corner and really tried my best to do my parents proud, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me at that time. I would love to take piano lessons now but I don’t think my mother would consent to paying for them the way she did back then.
The metronome guitar center that resembles the one that I used, looks much like this one:
winter wood metronome
While the ones that are available and being used today look like this:

What a huge difference to get your tick tock on!
It’s true that it takes money to make money. I know several people that are getting into the Online Trading and the Online Broker business and are fairing quite well, so far. I myself don’t know a darn thing about IRA Accounts or Mobile Trading, but would love to know more about them.
I know that the Internet would be a useful tool in learning about these financial opportunities, but I think that the writings would be so dry and filled so many long million dollar words that I’d lose interest in just a few short minutes of reading. So I’d prefer to learn by someone explaining and or showing me first hand. I mean I do know a bit about Stock Trading, I just would like to know more of a variety of what I’ve managed to find out just from watching TV, reading the newspaper and listening to the local news programs all my life. They certainly didn’t teach us anything about this type of stuff back in high school although I’m sure that they have classes in the subject now a days.
Maybe I’ll call one of friends that is knowledable about such things and we will do lunch or dinner together and I can pick her brain on the subject while we eat. You are never too old to learn, as they say!
How can I say no to my favorite nephew’s request when he is such a good, honest, hard working young man that I have had the pleasure of being around. When so many kids are either in trouble or causing trouble this one is a straight A student and honest as the day is long, a nice change of pace wouldn’t you say. He is learning to play the guitar and really has his eye on a warwick 5 finger bass, that he sent me a picture of today on Facebook. It is a nice looking piece of work, I have to admit. I’ll have to see what I come up with in the near future, maybe a Christmas present issue to keep on the back burner.
Even after viewing the DVD’s of the two boys during their junior high school wrestling matches that my kid sister sent her an jerk of an ex husband, the jerk claims still see that there is no way in the world that my two nephews couldn’t be his. Any fool could take on look at either one of them and see for a fact that these guys look just like mini version of the creep. So now it looks like my kid sis will be shopping for paternity tests to purchase just to get this guy to shut up as well as put up. I know that her feelings are hurt, but some things just work out in the end and hopefully everyone will be better off because all of it and it will all be over and done with once in for all.
Playing any kind of musical instrument has never come easy for. I took piano and guitar lessons as a kid, but never really amounted to anything and now that I am older I really wish that I had tried harder and kept up with those lessons. For Christmas my Dad bought me a real cool hohner harmonica and a nice neck holder to go along with it as well. I was puzzled as to why he picked something like out for me and asked him why and never did get a straight answer out of him. But I have picked it up a few times and played around with it and now am interested in learning how to really play the darn thing.
I’m told that you can find lessons online, so that will be my mission for the weekend. I plan on staying inside since the weather is supposed to be cold and nasty and I don’t want anything to do with any of that. So with my fireplace going and my Internet I’ll be good to go for the entire time.
