Did You Know About the Blue Microphones Spark?

Did you know about the blue microphones spark?

The newest in this prograde microphone is a small mic that provides a "unique Focus Control switch for a wider range of high-to-low end sonic signatures." This is something that aids those working at an in-home studio, providing them with the equipment needed to make those pro sounds.  This small sized mic can be used both with instruments and vocals.

Did You Know About the Power of Mantras?

Did you know about the power of mantras?

While training for triathlons, there are many moments that I'd like to just stop. When it's hot outside. Or raining. Or I'm tired. But I've learned over the years the power of mantras, or mottos. I have four that I really rely on.

 Of course there is the one I taught the little girl I used to keep and she used on me: "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can..."

Or one that was used when my son was in training for his black belt: "Train hard, test easy."

Also my favorite before jumping into the cold pool: "Don't think, just do it."

And my all around favorite: "I am stronger than...._________"

That last one is perfect for any moment of weakness as you can insert whatever it is that is bothering you (I am stronger than the heat; I am stronger than my tired legs; I am stronger than I thought I was.)

I have found the power of mantras get me through many of those tough moments of any workout or long training program.

Priced at $225 with free shipping makes this little pro grade recorder/editor/mixer affordable for educational institutions; they even allow this pricing for homeschooled students. This device helps you sound like a pro while still being fairly simple to use. To get this educational edition you do have to provide proper documentation of your educational facility.

Did You Know I May Need an Intervention?

Did you know I may need an intervention?

I have been working at an outdoor sportswear company for nine months now. I love the deals we get on great clothing and accessories. I have really stocked up on some cool stuff. Today they were sending me photos of some stuff as they unloaded the new freight boxes!! Of course there was only one of each size so I had to go on over today on my day off to pick up the next newest thing!! I think I may need an intervention.....

Did You Know About Thrifty Advertising?

Did you know about thrifty advertising?

Our church is always having functions that we need to advertise for. And of course we always want the best deal possible. We have to use our funds wisely, so we do look for cheap brochures, give aways and other ways to advertise our events while still being cost efficient.
