It’s All In The Timing and September Is Such A Busy Time

It really bites that most of my friends and family have relocated so far from here. We do try to keep in touch with all of the various ways that today’s technologies allow us to and for the major holidays we have managed to get most everyone together as best as we can, but it still hurts.

A good friend of mine is hiring a local DJ for her 25th wedding anniversary party she is throwing in September that I would love to attend. This DJ has the latest pcdj software that is so talked about these days in the music industry. Unfortunately September is such a busy month, what with schools getting started and all the chores that are required to tend to at that time of the year, that there really isn’t any real chance that I could just take off for a long weekend for something like this. At least I know that there will be plenty of pictures that I can look at when she gets around to posting them on Facebook.

Brian Baggett the Video Presenter for Musicians Friend Private Reserve

The term “private reserve” sounds so uppity, but in all reality anyone can purchase a musicians friend private reserve if you know what you want/need and you have the means to  pay for what most discriminating players and collectors are interested in.

I have been doing business with Musician’s Friend for some time now. Their website is way up high on my “Favorites” list and I don’t see it coming down any time soon. With Christmas shopping in full swing considering it is finally after Labor Day. The musical side of the family is always looking for new musical related items. Musician’s Friend has helped me figure out the perfect gift time and time again over the years.

Online Dating Options For Mom

I had been telling my mother about online dating for months, but for some reason she was very reluctant to give it a try. For some reason, she was under the impression that you have to be knowledgeable about computers. Finally, after much persuasion on my part, she was ready to give it a try. There are so many sites it was very difficult for her to choose just one. The one that seemed the most appealing to her was a 50 plus dating club.

We began searching on the site and were surprised at how many great people there were in our local area looking for companionship. The search alone changed my mother’s outlook on online dating and dating in general. She found the site very easy to use, even for someone that may not be too computer savvy. They allow you to post a picture of yourself and make a profile explaining you and your interests. She was looking through others profiles in no time.

Dating Does Not End At 50

After several years of living the single life, my mother has recently been showing interest in dating. It has been many years since she has been on a date and she was feeling very apprehensive. The simple idea of being out there and having to play that game is very intimidating and not something she was looking forward to. So many things have changed and she wasn’t quite sure where to start.

After researching different avenues, her first choice was to try out a singles mingle that was being hosted by a local women’s club in our area. These types of events are great for locals that want to get to know each other and perhaps even make a connection. While they are a great way to meet people, they can also be a hit or miss. These events can sometimes be more like a meat market than a mature meet and greet. They often have more of a club appeal to them than a mature get together.

When our local areas single meeting didn’t get my mother any closer to a companion, she decided to let a friend of hers set her up. I know many people that have been set up by friends, I included and unfortunately, it doesn’t always end well. It can be a very awkward situation, to say the least. It also has the potential to ruin a friendship, if the meeting goes sour. Fortunately, the gentleman my mother’s friend set her up with was a great guy. However, he wasn’t the guy for my mother.
