My younger brother came to visit me from West Virginia and was so eager to see him after so long. I hadn’t seen him for about 2 years and so many things had changed since. The one thing that hasn’t and hopefully will never change is my yougest brothers love for music. He has been an aspiring musician ever since he learned how to play guitar in the forth grade.
When he visited I had talked to him about his music and said that everything was going great and he had a show to perform at a few weeks after his visit with me, he was super psyched about it. When I asked to see him play, he got out his guitar and his amp and started playing and he stopped in the middle because his amp wasn’t putting out what it was supposed to sound like.
Poor guy was so bummed until I had the idea of searching around on the net for a new amp. He leaped up and we scurried to the computer and looked around, and we came across genz-benz amps at Guitar Center
online. My younger brother saw the one he had been wanting for a long time and needless to say I ordered it right away for an awesome price. It arrived shortly after and I’m so thrilled that my younger brother now has his new amp he wanted, and is now creating beautiful music to share with the world. I expect front row seats from here on out!

Besides the heat and the humidity that we get to look forward to come July and August, the issue of mosquitoes is always a concern. I have a small fish pond in the backyard that I always have to be careful with so that these pesky critters don’t take over and make life miserable with all their biting, the itching and the constant swatting of.
And of course there is always the concern of the West Nile virus that becomes an issue each summer as well. I’ve never known anyone to contact this disease that is spread by mosquitoes, but each year the news is full of cases being reported all over the country. What with the swine flu scare that we are still experiencing out breaks now and then and now we have to concern ourselves with the good old reliable West Nile virus that is expected to start hitting in the next couple of weeks, right along with the cicadas. I actually have seen a few of this 17 year old cycling cicadas. So far they have both been dead. I can hear them buzzing from a distance and just know that at any given moment the are going to be right on top of us and life will totally change and revolve all around these nasty critters.
I’ve been looking into purchasing some of the new and exciting mosquito magnets that I’ve been recently hearing and reading about. I went online and found some positive sounding mosquito magnet reviews, so it looks like I’ll be giving them a try this year and see what they can do for me back in the pond area this season.

Oh girlfriend, it was nice to chat with you online this morning. But really bummed me out to hear about the trouble your brother had over the weekend. Don’t want to bust you out in my blog, so I won’t go into the details but want to share some thoughts with you.
While working for the law firm downtown, I learned a few things that I want to share with everyone who reads my blog.
First off, DO NOT EVER go to court and represent yourself. GET A GOOD LAWYER! The prosecuting attorney and the judge will eat you up if you try to go it alone!
Second, find a GOOD LAWYER who specializes in the type of case with which you need help. A DWI lawyer is not the best resource for a divorce. A personal injury attorney is not the best way to stay out of jail if you have a criminal charge to face. Etc.
I know of a DWI attorney in the Raleigh NC area who might help your brother, Mark T. McCullough, who is well known for being a good DWI lawyer. He has a good website with contact info. If you need a good DWI Raleigh NC lawyer, you should at least talk to him and hear what he has to say.
Hope it all works out.

My boyfriend and I have been thinking about getting a puppy and making it part of the family. I had talked to my brother in-law about it and he told me to make sure it a safe breeder puppy, which I wasn’t completely clear on how to do what he was talking about, but when I asked him, he told me to go onto the Internet and to Google the words puppy mills and read up on the subject.
So I did and I found that you can learn so much about what you can look for, and what kind of things you should find out before you go to the store and see a cute puppy, purchase it and walk out. You can save hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars just by taking the time to do a bit of research, and of course with the Internet it can’t get much easier than that.
Puppies In A Circle
May 7th, 2013
An old friend of mine (a bartender by trade) from Texas emailed me earlier today, his news is always so sunny and cheerful (living in sunny north Texas, easy to see why) but this time he seems to be feeling very, very low and had no good or positive news to share with me this time around.
I’ve known this man for over 30 years and have seen both his ups and downs and he is feeling pretty blue right now. The economy is effecting everyone and bartenders, that survive on tips, are feeling the impact desperately so. He is considering going back to driving a cab, part-time, if they are hiring, if not he has driven the city bus before and left on good terms, years ago, but he put in his time, all the same.
He isn’t a young puppy any more and really isn’t too keen on working two jobs again, he thought those days were over and done with and was doing pretty well until about 2 years ago. Credit Cards have been his biggest issue, he is a compulsive buyer and just stretched his credit to the limit and now things have gone all crazy on him.
My buddy is considering filing for bankruptcy, I think this just might be his smartest move that he has done in a long time. It won’t be easy, but nothing worthwhile is easy. There are plenty of good bankruptcy attorney in north Dallas, it should only take a few minutes to search online to find the right one that will do the job for him. I wish him all the luck in the world.
