Getting set up to DJ

My newphew is starting his own DJ business! He’s been moonlighting with a friend of his the past couple of years, helping him out here and there, and he’s made a pretty good income with it. His friend encouraged him to get his own equipment and striking out on his own. His friend has given him a second-hand turntable, (yes, it still works great!) and gave him a list of equipment that he needs. He offered to buy him his pick of turntable cases to help him get started. Isn’t that sweet!

Happy Easter Eggs


One of my favorite parts of Easter is boiling eggs and then dipping them into little pots or cups of color. I love to make different shades of color and draw designs on the eggs. That is something special we’ve always done as a family. I guess it is our little tradition. We do it even without any little kids around to hunt the eggs later.

For the past couple of years my hubby has been complaining that he can’t find a styptic pencil anywhere. I have even gone to different stores with him to look, and the ones that I’ve been able to find he insists aren’t “good enough.” I just found one online at pinaud at and I am going to show him this picture and ask him if he wants me to order it and try it out.
