Epiphone Explorer Bass

As our youngest son grew, we found he had a variety of interests. He had a love for music and began to teach him self how to play the guitar. There were many he was interested in. Some I hadn't even heard of before, such as the epiphone explorer bass. He enjoyed the Fender Guitars also. It was amazing to watch him grow as he learned. He still enjoys it to this day.

Yesterday was one of the laziest days that I have had in a long time. My husband had to go to work at five in the morning, so I got up with him and stayed up. I drank coffee, got back in the bed, and flipped on the Dish. I started watching “Vampire Diaries”. Season two was playing and I had already seen season one. By the time it was eight o’clock, I had already watched three episodes and was onto my forth. I decided to eat a little breakfast and let the dog out. I hopped back in the bed. Finally at one o’clock, I started worrying about everything that I hadn’t done that day. I had been sitting in the bed, avoiding all of the work that I needed to be doing, and watching a teenie bopper show! I could just imagine my husband walking in unexpectedly and laughing when he saw what I had been up to all day. I told myself I was just going to watch one more episode. I finally got up and at them at two o’clock. Sometimes it is nice to just stay in the bed and watch some television.


We have done some remodeling in the last two homes we have owned. Right now, in fact, we are in the process of changing some things in our house. Many of the light fixtures really weren't what I wanted so we did install some new ones. I have always been one to change switchplates too. There are some very unique ones and many styles and colors too.

Gas Prices

It is sad that we think gas prices of just under $3 is a good thing. I know that it has been much higher but $3 gas is not good. My hope is that it goes down under $2. Will it happen? I really don't know but I would love it. It makes me wonder what, or who, is keeping gas prices high. Is it just a political deal? What do you think?

It is pretty awesome that we are having this great weather and it is January. People are wondering what is up with the warmth during a winter month. I don't mind at all. My opinion has been that once January rolls around, winter is mostly over. We don't even have snow on the ground. A few weeks ago we got over half a foot of snow but thankfully it is gone now. It keeps attitudes much better for me and others too.


My husband is always so good about going shopping with me. Though the years he has enjoyed stopping in at the local radioshack. He seems to find some great specials there. There is such a variety of products. They have radios, speakers, TV mounts and more. We feel they can be quite competitive which is nice. They have been around for years and continue to go strong.
