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.

 

 

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.

Blogs, Good Information To Be Shared

It still amazes me to find how many people are clueless as to what a blog is. I seem to find blogs every where I turn and of course I have my blog that I’ve enjoyed dabbling with and on for a few years now that I’ve encouraged plenty of people to read when they can. With so many businesses turning to the online customer blog to help market their products and services I find it hard to believe that so many people that spend a good amount of time online aren’t reading all the good blogs that are being provided to us. Customer Service is a huge deal for most people, I know it’s a huge issue for me since I have been in some type of customer service jobs all my life.  I hear that musicians friend customer service number can put you in touch with a team of experienced sales reps that will bend over backwards for anyone who is interested in any of their products and have questions to be answered to help make an educated choice by today’s musicians.

My step father has been experiencing some pretty bad back issues these past few years and is always going to different doctors trying to find a way to keep his quality of life from getting any worse than it is now. The last doctor is hooking him up with one of the TENS Units that we have been hearing so much about. These Muscle Stimulators have helped so many people with their pain issues and are becoming more popular each year. So we all have been reading up online on the one that he is going to be using, the LT-TEC Dual Combo TENS Unit and Muscle Stimulator and we are anxious to see if it will do the trick for our step father who deserves so much more than he is getting from the doctors around here.

The Up Dating of Maps

The way that they are constantly changing the names of countries it would be hard to keep up with the job of being a mapmaker these days. But I guess that it would be good job security though. I am pretty familiar with the globe and what is where, and who belongs to who, but sometimes I’m really thrown for a loop about some places.

This time stemming from a conversation at work with a buddy who is planning a unique vacation for his family this summer vacation season. He has had enough of Disney World and the typical family style get-a-ways that they have fallen into the routine of, so he has gone online and has spent a good amount of time researching to come up with The Great British Holiday at Butlins Minehead.

Memories of Christmas and The Family Music Celebration

Each Christmas brings back a flood of memories of many of the holidays during my childhood. The one thing that I miss the most is the family music that was always made and played at my great aunt and uncle’s house. Coming from an extremely musical family it only made sense to celebrate with music. Just about everyone played at least one musical instrument and if they didn’t they surely had a great singing voice. If by chance you couldn’t do either you were kept busy in the kitchen and the dining room making sure that there was a steady flow of food and drink ready during the entire celebration. Since I can’t play any instrument or carry a tune, I can only thank goodness I was a kid and didn’t have to partake in that. I was too busy running around the house, the yard and digging the music being played in the living room.

Uncle Earl was my favorite (for a variety of reasons) I can still see him playing one of his many beautiful gently used saxophones that he was so proud of. I could never understand how a person could play one of these saxophones. It requires so much breath, surely one could possibly pass out from the lack of oxygen being passed through the body. Actually most of the windwind and basswind instruments require such a talent, a talent that just leaves this person breathless.
