Two different brands with the same model names can be confusing

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!

Make Your Wedding Guest Book Special

A couple’s wedding guest book can be so much more than just a book that people sign their names as some type of roster sheet to know who attended the wedding. A wedding guest book can be a special place in which friends and family leave words of encouragement and support for the bride and group along with signing in that they were in attendance. How much more special would that be than a plain list of names.

It also doesn’t have to be just a regular book. You could have your guests leave messages for the you in or on something other than I book. For example, how about having everyone sign a picture of the bride and groom. A picture is something you could have framed and display in your home and remember the special day each time you walk past it in your home. I know I personally would see a picture hanging in my home more often than I would dig out a guest book in a box somewhere in the attic.

If you want to go with a more traditional guest book there are many styles that you can choose from to coordinate with your wedding theme and colors. I bet you could even have a guest book custom made to match all of the other decorations. Just remember that the wedding guest book can be for more than just a list of guests in attendance.

Wedding Decorations For Every Style and Budget

Wedding decorations can rank right up there with the bride’s dress when it comes to stress levels in planning a wedding. It doesn’t have to be stressful though. You can start by flipping through some wedding and bridal magazines or surfing wedding websites online to get some ideas.

A great way to determine what wedding decorations you would like to have at your wedding and reception would be to first select a theme. Once you have a wedding theme it will make choosing your decorations so much easier. In addition to a theme, choosing a color scheme can steer you in the direction of decorations you light like. Ask yourself what kind of style or look are you going for, elegant and classic, or modern and refined? No matter what your style is there is something out there that will fit into your vision.

There are wedding decorations for every budget, from caviar and diamonds high on down from there. You can even have your wedding decorations custom made. This is great for every bride because she’ll be able to have exactly what she wants. With custom designed decorations you can make sure all of your decorations match or compliment each other well if you have the same company do everything.

Nice little stocking stuffer for the bass player

When I was going crazy, trying to think of stocking stuffer gift ideas for the adults in the extended family, I remembered that Cousin Steve plays the bass. So I think that the next time I’m at the mall, I’m going to make a point to buy some Bass Strings to put into his stocking! Won’t he be surprised to see something like that instead of a candy bar or an orange!
