Learning to ballroom dance

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.

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!

Mini keyboard

When Christie brought home the new m audio oxygen 25 I was really surprised how small the keyboard was. I didn’t expect that she would be very happy with the device at all. But within minutes of plugging the USB keyboard into her computer, she was playing music with a big, silly grin on her face, and I was happy that she was happy. I didn’t dare ask her how much money she paid for it – I didn’t want to ruin the moment!
