Online Buying Guides

If I have any options to review a product and/or service, you can bet that I will be utilizing every type(s) that I can get my hands on. It’s a whole new world out there. It’s amazing to think that we managed to live our lives without computers. At some point in the late 80’s we have become more and more reliant on what used to be referred to as the World Wide Web. I mean when is the last time you have even heard the words World Wide Web?

With all that the Internet has to offer almost all of us in the 21st century, it still surprises me that there are still some of our senior citizens who are bucking, kicking and screaming all the way to any computer who just can’t wrap their heads around even some of the most basic functions, even explaining all that they are missing by not using e-mail can’t entice some people to get on board.

My grandmother was a bit slow at getting used to the whole computer concept, but it didn’t take long once she starting realizing how useful it can be. One of the advantage that came into play during the holiday gift buying season. She actually took her time and checked out different guitars that she found at one of the major music websites that have just about anything that is musically related. It seems that a friend and neighbor told her about Musician’s Friend, which Grandma felt safe enough to go online, find a particular buying guide and actually ordered a wonderful guitar at a great price. Free shipping is always a plus when ordering anything online.

The Meaning of the Season

Just a little more than a week until Christmas and the holiday season hustle and bustle in surely in full swing. It came to me today how much Christmas has changed in my lifetime and how commercial it’s all become.

It seems most families spend way too much money for items their friends and loved ones probably don’t really need. Weeks and months of shopping and preparation turns into a few minutes of present opening frenzy. My immediate family takes a laid back approach to the holidays and mostly just enjoy a nice meal and the time together. I’m also sentimental enough to believe that Christmas should be an attitude we have in our hearts all year.

Luna Guitars A Plenty

To be perfectly honest, I had absolutely no idea what any of the Luna Guitars were, much less – where to find a good one at a decent price. I am glad I discovered the WWBW’s website, which gave me many options and ideas to toss around before making a final decision. I mean really it’s already December for heaven’s sake. Christmas seems so far in the distant that I just can’t seem to get into the mood of thinking of anything that goes along with the holiday season, but I am a procrastinator.

I think if my two sisters pitch in as well we can purchase an affordable Luna Guitar much like the one below for Jason for his birthday, which unfortunately falls on Christmas Eve. Poor kid gets robbed of his birthday every year no matter how hard anyone tries. He is a good kid and we want to make sure he gets a good gift this year. Being 13 is hard enough.

Holiday photos

I found a walgreens photo coupon for Walgreen’s at 50% off photo books, cards, prints and a lot more. I am going to use mine to make holiday Christmas cards to send to my family. I also have a couple of other projects that I want to use Walgreen’s photo for. The photo books I am making for family gifts of the children, I am going to give to their grandparents. All grandparents love photo’s of the grandchildren and my parents are no exception. Photos are easy to do at Walgreen’s with the new technology they have. I can put my card from my camera right into the monitor and select only the pictures I want to use, without having to have extras to store and take up space in my house.

The walgreens photo code I found for this project will help my costs stay to a manageable level, making it easier to save money for other Christmas gifts. Walgreen’s does the best photo’s of all the photo shops out there. Looking for promotional coupons is something I do all the time, because saving money is important when you are raising kids. It helps me to be able to buy more of the extras we all want to give our children.

I go to Walgreens for a lot of stuff. Their deals on Holiday decorations, costumes, etc are always worth the trip there. We even get out prescriptions there too. I am going to make sure that I share this discount with all of my friends and family, so everyone can take advantage of this promotion this holiday season. I encourage everyone to do so as well. You will be surprised at just how many different projects you can do with Walgreen’s photo shop. So give it a try and see what you can create for your family too.

Transmission

Well the transmission went out on the truck. That really stinks. Transmissions cost a lot of money, unless you get one that is used. Of course, if you get one that is used, there is no telling how long it will last. If you know how, you can rebuild yours, but a lot of people don’t have that kind of skill. I have to do a lot of research today and see what I can find for a transmission. I may be able to find a re manufactured one. That is actually my best bet. It will still cost almost a thousand dollars though.

Thanksgiving

A holiday that I really love is Thanksgiving. I love all of the traditional foods and the time spent with friends and family. This year the tribe will be gathering at my home and I really can not wait. I have started cooking the pies and some of the breads already and will be ready to pop the turkey in the oven on Thursday morning.

My sister will be arriving the day before and will be staying with us, I can not wait it has been forever since I have seen her and I am excited to be hosting her family this year. Get ready the turkey is on it’s way, loosen your belt and sit down at the table.

Hosting via the web

Hosting your own website can be a challenge if you have never done it before or have a lack of computer knowledge.  Personally, I am not a computer guru so when I decided to jump into the world of technology I decided I better get some help.

Recently, I have been taking some classes on horticulture and wanted to be able to share this information with others.  I absolutely love gardening and constantly yearn for new knowledge about plants.  One area that fascinates me is new species of plants.  I envy the horticulturists out there that are able to create and breed new plants.  One new species I currently am researching is what the article called bleeding tooth fungus.  The plant is very cool looking.  The plant is pink in color like the gums on a human and drips blood- colored liquid.  I am not sure if this plant is toxic but I imagine it must be.  The more brightly colored plants are the more poisonous they usually are.

My new website will be produced by a web hosting company.  They have been very helpful and have given me the confidence ot continue my goal of spreading horticultural news to the world.
