Strat Pickups

I am not a musically inclined person. Don't get me wrong, I love music and enjoy listening to it often but I do not play an instrument of any sort. When I hear of different music parts that I have never heard of I find it interesting to see what these things do. For example strat pickups, these items can be installed on Strat-style guitar and they help create authentic tones while lowering the noise content. That's interesting to me because I don't know much about this stuff and anything to do with guitars are pretty cool.


In my job I do a lot of walking some days. When I first started in this position I would try and walk very quickly and it helped me to drop some pounds that I was having a hard time getting rid of. Well this winter I have put on about 3 pounds and I thought I should start picking up my speed when I am walking around the halls at work. Hoping that if I do this day after day that I can drop those 3 pounds. So I got off to a good start today. It felt good to walk fast until this afternoon I suddenly felt pain in my left thigh area. I thought to myself, "Oh you got to be kidding me!" So tonight I am sitting here with a heating pad trying to calm the pain down. I suppose I will have to gradually get back into walking fast. It's a bummer that I hurt myself so easily.

Reviews for Hunting Cameras

A former coworker of mine loves to hunt. He will sit for hours up in his tree stand waiting for that perfect buck to cross his path so he can take it down. One day he came to work and was showing us his hunting camera. It was so cool to see all the pictures he had captured of the deer and other wild life in the area he had it located. It was a really nice camera and I'm sure he took the time to read reviews for hunting cameras. There are so many of them and if a person is going to invest in something like that it's wise to know what your are planning to purchase before hand.

Tax Time

I hate tax time. I get nervous doing them and this year I had 4 to do. This past weekend I was busy getting them done and today I filed the last one. What a relief! Luckily none of them were too hard to do. Now we can sit back and enjoy the rest of the year and look forward to some refunds. It's nice to see my boys receive a refund. They can sure use the extra money. Before we know it I will be sitting down filing again. It just seems to go that fast.
