Have you ever heard of rubber guitar strings? The first time I had ever heard of them, it was while reading a review of a kala bass guitar online. The reviewer was talking about how much he loved the guitar, especially with rubber guitar strings! He claimed that the rubber guitar strings helped to eliminate sore fingers! I’ve never heard of such a thing! I wonder if my parents had put rubber strings on my guitar when I was a teenager, if I would have continued to take classes. I quit because my fingers hurt so much!
I have always loved the family Christmas party where all of the musicians bring their instruments and jam for an hour. I especially love listening to Jason plays a short solo on his tenor saxophone. He has a great on-stage presence. When you watch him perform, you can tell that he is really enjoying what he is playing. It makes me wish that I had been able to develop that same passion for music at a younger age – I might have been a great musician by now!
I was so surprised to be able to find the boss fender reverb pedal that Dave put on his Christmas gift wish list when I was shopping today! I was at the mall, and just happened to be walking past a store that sells musical instruments. I didn’t think I’d have any luck finding it, but I went straight to the employee standing behind the counter and asked him if he could help me. When I showed him the list, he told me that he only had one left in stock, and he took me right to it! Within just a couple of minutes the item was paid for, bagged, and I was on my way out the door to finish the rest of my shopping! I am so glad that gift is out of the way – I thought that was going to be the hardest one to find!
Your furnace works hard for almost half of the year, and it’s too easy to forget about proper maintenance and replacing it when it’s time. The last thing you want is to have to replace a furnace in a hurry because it stopped working – although with 24/7 emergency service, even that is possible. Still, it’s better to watch for signs that it’s time to replace your furnace before it breaks down and leaves you in the cold for hours at a time.
When It’s Old or Wearing Down
Schedule a consultation with Belknap Heating and Cooling to take a look at your furnace if it’s been giving you any issues or is more than a decade old. If parts are wearing down and it’ll cost more to replace them than to buy a new furnace, it makes sense to upgrade. If it’s still operational but over a decade old, the newer models will prove much more efficient, which will save you money on your heating bills.
With tax credits, discounts and specials, the cost of replacing a furnace is likely to be far less than you imagine. Plus, if you shop once the cooler season is underway – particularly if you wait until late winter or spring – you’re sure to find even better discounts. At the very least, you need to arrange twice-a-year cleaning sessions with heating experts to keep your current system in top form.
I live in a little house my Grandma had and is renting to me real cheap. I love it but it’s in need of some fixing up or fancying up I guess I should say. I really want to wallpaper the kitchen on two of the walls where the kitchen table is (I call it the dining area) and the bathroom needs new wallpaper too. I think the paper that is in there was put up in about 1900. I’m being serious because it looks like real old newspaper and the dates on it say 1900. It’s just plain and simply UGLY!! I gotta see if I can find a discount wallpaper site online. If you know of a good one, let me know. I bet Grandma knows of one because she seems to be able to find just about anything online.
