I was watching an interview of Jeff Bridges on YouTube that was produced by gretsch guitars and I thought it was really funny that he talked about how when he was a child, he took piano lessons and he hated taking the classes. He talked about how he complained so much about practicing and taking the classes that eventually his mother let him quit, saying that he would regret it later in life, and now he says his mother was right – he does regret it now! That got me wondering about how many times my mother nagged me to do something, and whether she was right or not. My conclusion was – no, she wasn’t right!
And for my hubby, who has a Harley Davidson Wide Glide, the cutest gift basket I’ve seen for him was when I was looking for gift baskets for men and found one that took shape in the form of an insulated ice chest that was big enough for a six pack stuffed with a teddy bear dressed in biker leathers, a picture frame that looked like a motorcycle with the wheels area cut out for two photos, and party snack mix along with other edible treats that he would love to eat!
With a little bit of thought about the recipient, it really isn’t all that hard to find and give a great gift basket that lets the recipient know that you didn’t just run down to the grocery store and buy a “generic fruit gift basket.” Gift baskets CAN be really nice gifts!
One of the things I love about the Internet is how you can use it to learn how to do things! For example, I often use YouTube to watch videos on how to make things, or use things, or repair things! For example, I was watching a tutorial on how to use an Aviom A360 Personal Mixer:
I also like how you can use the Internet to buy things instantly – so many websites are from wholesalers, or retailers with websites set up so that you can find the product you need (like the Aviom A360 Personal Mixer and with just a click of the mouse you can Order online here and within a few days the product will show up on your doorstep! When you live way out in the country, going into the big city, or the nearest shopping mall sometimes simply is not an option. I love having the Internet to fill in the gaps when I need to get (or learn) something!
Well, yesterday we had company and I was feeling better so I decided to rustle up the dinner. I discovered that we were all out of veggies! Apparently we have been out of veggies for quite a while and no one bothered to put them on the shopping list or buy them. Well, that explains a lot! Now I have to rummage through the pantry and figure out what ELSE we are out of and generate a GOOD shopping list and do the shopping!
