Playing beautiful music

Call me silly, but I like the music that comes from kazoos because it makes me smile. It reminds me of fun things, like being a kid and playing your kazoo and wow didn’t we all think we were going to grow up and play in the orchestra! I think that kazoos may be the first instrument children learn to play in school, at least that is how it was when I was growing up. Kazoos and recorders. The good old days.

DVDs and stuff

I have been looking for a cheap ez dupe single target dvd duplicator at musicians friend because I’d like to have a copy of my DVDs so that my kids don’t ruin the originals. The problem is that I don’t know if copying them gives me the option of using the title menu and skipping through chapters, etc. Back in the day copying a DVD required special software and one lost the ability to skip chapters, etc. It was basically put the movie in and watch the whole thing. Period. End of story.

My sister is celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary in July and my other sisters came to me with the idea of throwing a large party. I am always in for a party, but I don’t want to be the one stuck doing things like changing the CDs and urging people to get out and dance so I started looking online for ideas and I came across this website which was quite helpful except for the fact that the DJ is in South Carolina, which is just a bit of a drive from northern California, where our party will be held. So, the search continues.

Making Music

When I think of wind and percussion instruments I think the Disney movie The Little Mermaid.  One of my favorite songs on that soundtrack is Kiss the Girl and if you’ve seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about.  Anyway, my daughter is a musical whiz kid and plays many instruments, and drums is next on her list.  So long as my ears (and nerves) can handle it.   I may invest in some new earplugs.

Longest Month Ever

This month has been filled with busy, busy, busy!  Kids going here and there, school started again on the 6th so I've been doing homework and the like every day.  Then there are the doctor appointments and veterinarian appointments and grocery shopping. It's like a never ending list of stuff to do.

And on the flip side of all that, I feel like the month is just dragging on and on and on.

who knew!

When my daughter got married last year, there were three young men, under the age of 10, who were not wearing the same suits as the groomsmen. When I asked why, I was informed that a tuxedo for boys is quite difficult to find. Who knew. Then, oddly, today I was thinking about it and walla, a website that offers tuxedos for young men and boys. Who knew!

Time to Start Thinking of Gifts

I know a few people who still believe that pearls are what their grandma wore. I disagree completely. While I don’t wear the old fashioned Donna Reed string of pearls, I do have several pearl necklaces that I find to be quite stylish and classic looking. Now that the gift giving season is upon us, I am leaving a few well-placed notes around my house hinting toward how awesome it would be to receive a new piece of jewelry for Christmas.

Immegration Attorney - abogados de inmigracion

I live in the scorching desert where the weather is great nine months out of the year and where immigration is a topic 12 months out of the year. I know many people who have needed an immigration attorney during their lifetime, and a few of them will need one in the future. Luckily for them, there are many abogados de inmigracion to serve their needs and to counsel them on the best options available to them to protect themselves and their families the legal way.
