Audio Cable Line

Technology is awesome, as we all know, and we all say how great it is until it doesn’t work, right? Technology and I don’t always have the best working relationship, although I do try my hardest until I finally get so fed up that I have to call in for some type of back up.

Lately my audio cable line has been giving me trouble. Lord knows I don’t know a soul who can help me with this current issue, so I buckled down and went online to the Guitar Center’s website and ordered a new monster cable. So many to choose from, along with a wide variety of price points, so I went for a mid way product at $25 that will give me 3 feet of a good quality cable to my speakers. It should be arriving by the end of next week, until then the old one has been tossed into the trash can.

Good Work

I work for a very large company. Despite the uncertain economic times, we are fortunate to be expanding. That is good news except for the fact that we have had some problems with having enough space to do our work in. That’s why we have decided to build some new buildings for our company. I play a role in that and it has been interesting to say the least.

One thing my company ask me to do is to have some input on the amount and types of cabling we needed for the new offices. I needed to find a Structured Cabling Contractor to install the wiring. It was not as easy as it sounded and I had quite a time with it. I knew it was very important to get it right the first time. Getting the right Structured Cabling Contractor was the key.

I finally found a company that could help. I visited a site called mason247 dot com and found the installers I needed. They had plenty of experience as data cabling installers and seemed very good at what they did. It was a match made in heaven and I was very lucky to have picked the right company. Our building is now up and running and we are very happy with the results. I am good at my job!


One thing that worries me about my daughter is her security. Since she has started college, she walks around the campus to get to her classes. That is not so bad, but some of her classes are at night. While the lighting there is pretty good, there are some places where it can be a little dark. It worries me that she is alone and vulnerable. I have talked to her about this and she promises me that she is careful.

Despite her promises, I worry just the same. I was talking with a friend of mine when he suggested that she might want to carry pepper Spray as a way to thwart any would be attackers. I liked the idea and went online to see what information I could find on the subject. That’s when I came across a site called brickhousesecurity dot com. They have a wide array of self-defense products.

Another item that caught my eye was a GPS Tracker. I thought it would be nice if she would carry that around so I would always know where she was. You never know what will happen in this world and I would be devastated if something happened to my daughter that could be prevented. I feel so much better now that I know she is safer than ever!

Choose Your Instrument

Never really understood why so many people think that music lessons begin with the piano. Most modern homes do not have a piano in them, although I believe everyone in my family does have a piano or electronic keyboard in their homes. Even if we do not play, having a piano was expected by my family – we are a musical family and the piano is our heritage.

Of course, all the cool kids play guitar or one of the best ukulele instruments. So I wanted to take guitar lessons. My parents said that the only way I could take guitar lessons was if I took 3 years of piano lessons first. Gaaaa!

Turns out that  did not want to play the guitar THAT badly. But I do wonder why they insisted on piano lessons – I never really wanted to play the piano – I just wanted to play the guitar.

Eminent domain

One thing that nearly every homeowner fears is the ability of the government to declare the right of eminent domain. This is when the law allows land to be forcibly taken for use by the government or others to help the public at large. What it usually means is that homeowners are forced to sell their property even if they don’t want to.

While I believe that in a true emergency the government should have the right to use your land, I feel this law has been abused. There are many cases where the courts are granting large companies the right to others property for little reason else than profit. I think everyone should check into this situation and voice their opinion.
