The past few months my friends and I have been going to a local karaoke bar. I’ve gone up there a few times myself, and have been quite annoyed with how tall the microphone stands have been set up. I haven’t been able to figure out how to adjust the height easily. I was thinking about suggesting to the karaoke DJ that he might consider replacing his microphone stand with an atlas ms25. I don’t know him very well, though, and hesitate to make any suggestions until I get to know him better.
One of the things that confuses me at times is when two different brands of a product decide to make similar products and give them the same model names. I would think that there would be patents and copyrights to prevent these types of things from happening! Case in point – I was watching some YouTube videos about the squier telecaster guitar and saw that the Fender company also has a telecaster guitar. Apparently the squier guitar is made in China, and the Fender is made in the USA.
The squier seems to be less expensive to buy than the Fender. I’ve seen some YouTube videos about the two different ones – one was doing a “Blindfold test” comparing the two. I don’t know which one I would buy if I were in the market for one. They both seem to produce some pretty good music!

This is the first year I have been old enough to vote and I DID IT!! I hope you did too. My grandmother told me that this is one of the most important things I can do to help our country. It doesn’t matter if the person I voted for wins or loses, my voice was heard either way. That’s a pretty empowering feeling to know that my one tiny voice will be heard. I just hope the best man wins no matter which one it is. I just hope they help all of us and not a select few.
I’m pretty sure I would like to get an IPad but I’m keeping an open mind and am going to check out the competition as well. I want to handle all of the different tablets before I make my final choice. I guess it’s kind of like taking a new car out for a test drive before deciding which one to buy.
Most of my friends have the IPad but some of the guys at work are using some of the other tablets out there and convinced me to at least give them a try. I can’t wait to see what they all offer and what kind of package deals I might be able to get.
I’m all for recycling. I told you about my microwave oven going out, right? Well my grandmother told me I should recycle it instead of just throwing it in my trash because the magnetron has radiation in it and that is not a good thing to be put in a landfill. I totally agreed with her and took it to our local county recycling center. They told me they would be glad to take it but would have to charge me $5.00 for the disposal fee. Say what? All they were going to do with it was throw it in the landfill. I told them that I thought they recycled microwave ovens; after all, the only thing wrong with this one is the main control panel was going out on it but the magnetron, transformer and fuse were all still good. He looked at me and said “I have no idea what you’re talking about but if you don’t want to pay us to throw it away then you could always take it to the Goodwill and donate it. That’s one way to get rid of it without paying us. “SAY WHAT???? I was totally appalled at what he was suggesting. I had no choice but to take it home and put it in my trash. I hated doing it but it was going to end up there no matter what I did.
