I was looking at tubas for sale online and found myself thinking how people say that money makes the world go round, but I don’t believe that. I think music makes the world go round. Music is in each of us in some way or another. Some of us just listen to it  and some of us make it, but it touches us all in some way or another.

If you play and old song, most people will tell you what they were doing or what was happening in their life at that time when the song came out. I am no different. I can hear a song and automatically it triggers memories of days gone by. So embrace the music and let it guide your memories.

The Learning Curve

Since I am fortunate enough to work in an office, I get to learn many things that I would not normally know about. I had the chance recently to learn more about what a dedicated server was and how it affected our business. We rely heavily on the internet and need to keep our website going at all cost. We bring in a lot of business that way and it is important to our bottom line.

It turns out that a server is what keeps your website running. It performs many basic functions that are important. Things like security, redundancy, and latency are all important factors to be considered. Another item we are concerned with is managed hosting. This is a practice that allows us to concentrate on making money as opposed to spending our time trying to figure out what is wrong with our site.

Another word that came up was colocation. I must admit that I didn’t have a clue as to what is was and was interested to find out. This is an option for people who already have a server but want someone to take care of it for them. Servers can be temperamental and it takes a lot of skill to keep them going. I was glad to learn more about the subject at hand and hope I will soon be able to talk more intelligently about it.

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!
