When Sandy told me that she has asked her boyfriend to take dance classes with her, I thought for sure that would be the end of that relationship! I’ve never had good luck getting any men to dance with me – ever! Even going to a nightclub with live music, it seemed that the men simply did not want to dance! Imagine my surprise when Sandy told me that her boyfriend agreed to take classes from the dance doctor of los angeles! I’d say that guy is a real keeper, to be willing to take dance classes to keep his woman happy!

Technology and the music business

Last night I was talking to my sister about how much the music business has changed over the years. We had come across an old vinyl album our father’s band had recorded in a music studio back in the ’50s and were wondering where we could find a record player to use to listen to it. We were talking about how back then it was unheard of for people to have all of the recording equipment at home to cut professional quality recordings. Anyone with an Internet connection, a shipping address, and a credit or debit card can go online and pick out what they want, buy now, ship overnight, and pay later. Before you know it, you have a recording studio in your very own living room!

House Warming Party

Tonight I visited one of my friend’s new home. She was having a house warming party. I brought her a basket filled with kitchen utensils and dish towels. I found some dish towels that had grapes and vines on them since she is doing her entire kitchen with a  grape theme. They were a cream colored with purple and green grapes strewn about.

Anyway, what really excited me while I was at her house was her bathroom. It was absolutely gorgeous. She has one of the most stunning vessel sinks made of earth toned marble. Her counter tops where in a similar marble color. The flooring was a breathtaking tile that I wish I had in my house. It looked easy to clean and was probably heated too. I’ve always thought heated floors were fancy. All of the linens were a cream color with a brown accent stripe. The whole room looked warm and inviting in it’s natural tones.

The rest of her house was just a beautiful as the bathroom, but I just couldn’t get enough of how lovely even the guest bathroom was. Normally the big bucks are spent on the master bathrooms and not the guest baths. She’s one lucky woman to have that gorgeous home.

The Right Way to Remove Weeds

So, I mentioned before that the weeds in the corner of my back yard are just so darn stubborn and won’t go away. I did a little bit of research an this is what I’ve learned about weed removal.

I’ve been pulling the weeds up out of the ground. I’ve always been told to make sure I get the roots out; that’s why I pull the weeds. Well, just pulling the weeds out might not be enough. Apparently some weeds have a really long or a large cluster or roots. If I just pull them up I might break them and leave a bunch of the roots behind. This will cause them to grow back. To make sure I get all of the roots out a good solution is to use a spade and dig the entire root base out of the ground.

I guess I’ve been doing it wrong all these years. I had no idea at all. I now have a project for the rest of the weekend. Hopefully I manage to get all of the roots out and I’ll have a weed free backyard in no time.

Need a new instruction manual

Jason was really psyched when the new rocktron all access arrived, but he was really angry when Stephie’s dog chewed up the instruction manual that came with it. I don’t know how many times I’ve warned them not to leave papers lying around on the floor! Maybe now they’ll start to pay closer attention to my warnings and pick up after themselves a little bit better. In the meantime, I’ve gone online and found a replacement instruction manual that we could print off online. Thank goodness for the Internet – it has saved the day again!
