Disco time

My eldest son has started having the odd disco at school. This is obviously making me feel old but the kids seem to love it.  They run around rather than dance but they have a great time none the less. The school uses some great Venue Lights, a DJ and lots and lots of glow sticks. [...]

Batiste Dry Shampoo

The first time I heard of dry shampoo, I thought it was a gimmick. However the person using it swore by it. So I decided to try it. And honestly I loved it. I have thin, greasy hair that I have to wash daily. However with young children that can be hard to accomplish and [...]

Harp vs Guitar Cases

As you know we recently purchased a rather pricey instrument. We bought a harp. As it is so pricey and it does need transporting, we thought we would invest in a carry case. A canvas carry case cost us over £300!! Can you believe that! Considering the harp is expensive, I did not feel like [...]

Pretty Things!

My daughter is really into pretty gemstone jewelry. She saw a similar bracelet to this and asked for one. At $28 dollars it is not going to break the bank and it is pretty.

Micro Terror

Who would have thought that a great orange micro terror at musicians friend was just a hybrid guitar amp? Well not I but there you have it. I am assuming it is so called it's eye catching, heart clenching name because of the amount of sound such a small box can give off.  For a small box, [...]

Amaretto Disaronno

If you have not heard of Amaretto, then you have no idea what you are missing. Amaretto is a sweet almond Italian liqueur. If you like almonds and liqueurs then you will love this drink. A word of warning, it is so easy to drink that it is very easy to over do it and [...]

I am probably not the best person to review the BCF2000 but from the little that I do know and understand I can give you my opinion. I think it is a good starting midi controller at a good price. If you are after something very proffessional and you know your stuff then you probably [...]

I do not know if you have ever heard of Grisbi but these are my utmost favourite biscuits. First of all, I must point out that have a huge range. I used to think they did just Chocolate Grisbi but then I found out they have a huge range and not just the three (Amarena, [...]

Lapel Microphone

It is amazing just how far technology keeps going. I am not that old but I remember being at school and being taught to project my voice so that everyone can hear me because it was essentially easier to rely on the children being able to project their voices than to get good performance from [...]
