A Korg Microkorg

To be perfectly honest, I had absolutely no idea what a korg microkorg was, much less – where to find a good one at a decent price. I am glad I discovered The Guitar Center, which gave me many options and ideas to toss around before making a final decision. I mean really it’s on the middle of October. 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.

I think if my two sisters pitch in as well we can purchase an affordable synthesizer 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.

Cool Nights

As I went to work tonight the cool night air made me shiver. It was down in the low forties and breezy. Made for a cold night riding around with the window to the truck rolled down. I know it will warm up later on but it was plain cold last night, the first really cool night of the fall season and I know that we have many more to follow, It takes me a while to get used to the cold I am cold blooded so it takes me a while to get used to the cold weather when it starts. Looks like tomorrow will be about the same so it will be bundle up time for me for a day or two I guess.

Cooler Weather


Today was our trash pick up day and we had a lot of trash bags filled with leaves and sticks from the last storm out at the curb. The trash had been out at the curb for 3 weeks and last week they picked up about half of it. I was very pleased when I left for work this morning that they had finally picked up the rest of the trash bags. Of course after 3 weeks they had killed the grass under them and it was a ugly mess of stuff that they did not pick up, sticks and paper but I can fix that, I am just very glad that the trash is now gone.

Medicare for Mom

As I have mentioned briefly, I care for my 74 year old mother. She came to live with me almost three years ago after taking a bad fall. I love her to death but honestly with her doctor appointments, and prescription refills all the time, it can feel like a part time job. She sees her regular doctor every two months, her cardiologist every three months, and then there are the quarterly appointments to have her pacemaker checked. Luckily, I have a job that allows me to leave and take her to her appointments without any trouble.

We are fortunate that she has good health insurance, including medicare part d. Most of her prescriptions are very inexpensive and very affordable. One, new prescription is $80 per month which is steep! We are fortunate that she is actually on very few prescriptions considering her heart problems.

She is worth it though and has always been there for me, throughout my entire life. I am happy that I am able to have her live with me and care for her. I will never be able to repay her for everything she has done for me in my life, but this feels like a small step towards that.

Night Creams

Ever since I was a small girl I have used many different night creams to help keep my skin moist, some worked very well some not at all. I got to searching on the internet for some night cream reviews, what I found amazed even cynical old me.

The one night cream that I have used for years was not given a very high score on the web site that I found with the very best night cream reviews. Night Creams has a great web site with a lot of information on which night cream is rated high and which ones are rated low. I plan to make my night cream choices from here on out on which ones have been rated higher than the rest.

I love the way that a good night cream makes my skin feel and I have always been very selective on which night cream I use and I see no reason to change that now that I am on the down hill side of 40, I need a better night cream now that I ever needed when I was 20. All the help I can get to choose a better night cream will be appreciated very highly.
