My hubby and I have noticed a lot of suspicious activity around our place lately. Not long ago somebody actually came onto our property and put sugar in the gas tank of our riding lawn mower! We have a suspicion who had done it, but we have no proof. I’ve suggested that we get some kind of trail camera to use to record what goes on at night, and I’ve actually started to do some research about which type to get. At first I had difficulty in locating reviews of the different cameras, but I finally was able to find it here on this website that sells different trail cameras.
For a website that sells cameras, the reviews seem to be pretty honest, and I will ask my hubby to read the reviews and see what he thinks about getting a few of the cameras and placing them around the property. We might even catch a few great photos of the wild animals that live around here – maybe even catch a glimpse of that black bear I keep hearing about!
A few weeks ago our company started a campaign to grow the business. They issued new loyalty cards that will give customers discounts and rewards. The loyalty card is free, all the customer has to do is sign up with their name and telephone number. I’ve had really good luck signing up a lot of the customers that I’ve had contact with. It really is a good deal for the customers! But I really don’t understand the regular customers that come in that could really save some money that absolutely refuse to sign up! Must be nice to be wealthy enough to put your nose up in the air and say “I don’t want a discount!”
Dean has been talking about checking out the selection of new saxophones at musicians friend the next time we go to the mall. He’s been putting aside a little bit of money every week from his paycheck, hoping to save enough to buy a new one before the year is over. We’ve found that sometimes the best time to buy things like this is during the Christmas shopping season – there are a lot of good sales on just about everything because all of the retailers are competing very hard with each other for the Holiday shopper’s money.
While looking around online for a soundbite or YouTube video that might demonstrate to me what a cyclone drum really sounds like, I found this video on YouTube of a couple of street musicians in Chile that dance while playing the drums. Although they are not using cyclone drums, apparently they call themselves the Cyclone Drummers. Their performance was very good – if I had seen them perform I certainly would have tossed some money in their collection hat!
Recently I discovered a drum called a cyclone drum. It is supposed to sound like a storm. I’ve been trying to find out for myself (as in actually hear it for myself) because I thought that buying a cyclone drum by schalloch at guitar center would be a cute little Christmas gift for my pre-teen nephew that seems to enjoy using everything in the world as a percussion instrument. The little drum is under $15. Maybe I’ll just buy it and give it to him and hear what it sounds like when he opens it at Christmas.
