A few days ago my sister was telling me that she was thinking about creating a website, but she couldn’t decide what name she wanted to use. She was torn between a couple of different names, and a couple of different suffixes. I suggested that maybe she would want to go ahead and buy all of the domains and have them “re-direct” to just one name, and then she would just maintain that one website. She didn’t understand what I meant, so I explained that if she went online and typed in “www.musician.com” she would automatically be redirected to a different website. I explained that is something that can be done by the techs at GoDaddy when she sets it all up. I hope she takes my advice!
Long ago, I remember my Grandpa getting his first “high tech” radio. It was a Sony. He was so proud. We could listen to the Tiger’s game without the transistor radio and not have the interference that usually happened during a great play.
When I got a job and was able to buy my own stereo system, I bought a Sony because of grandpa’s. I didn’t know anything about these kinds of things, but I remembered the name and the fact we could listen to our baseball. I also loved the fact that I could slip in a cassette and rewind, fast forward and in general have a “tape” that wasn’t a bulky piece of plastic called an “8 track.” It was great!
Now as years have gone by, I catch a grin. On the weekends my kids have “PlayStation” get together groups. Basically a party! They have Sony PlayStations and work them in a frenzy that I have never seen before. The kids have tried to teach me how to work the controls, but I haven’t got the hang of it. I can’t understand how they move their fingers so fast. It amazes me. I have to admit that I sit watching them and I wish I was a bit younger!
When Tiffany told me that she was going to buy Nicole a bridal robe for a bridal shower gift, I had no idea what she was talking about! I had never heard of, nor seen, anything called a “bridal robe.” So I asked Nicole if she would send me a link to a website that showed me what she was talking about. She sent me an email, that said “click here for bridal robes” and when I clicked on the link, it took me to a website that was selling a lot of bathrobes that had been personalized to indicate that the lady wearing the robe was a newlywed. What will they think of next?
I am a collector of spices. I don’t care what kind it is, if it sounds interesting I buy it. I love to go to various stores and look at the interesting spices from all over the world. But this time shopping, I was looking for the perfect spice rack. Since I knew that it would take me hours and hours to get out of the store if I went, I opted for the online shopping. I sort of got lost for a few days instead of the mere hours it would have taken me in the regular store. The internet can be pretty cool for things like this, I must admit!
I debated about about the certain kitchen spice racks I wanted to get, and kept going back and forth between pages. (Can you imagine what I do in stores? LOL). I loved so many of them and of course wanted to keep the spending down to just what I needed. I finally made up my mind and bought some great items. Now I have more room. My beloved spices are somewhat organized, and I even have an idea how to use the racks and bottles for holding my little sewing do dads! Am I finally getting organized???? Scary thought for my family, but indeed no doubt a welcome change from my clutter!
Today I spent the day putzing around and cleaning. The kids go to their first half day of school tomorrow and I’m not feeling the greatest. But indeed I hope ya’ll had a great weekend and keep safe.
