Oh music and musical instrument! There are lots of things to choose and lots of brands to admire. Just like these pa speakers at musiciansfriend.com which are all adorable. The one that I like most is the QSC K12 Powered Speaker Dual Sub Package with the most promising price and features. The next thing that I like is this Mackie HAD 12” 2-Way Arrayable Powered Loudspeaker pair package. I just like these two. How about you?
Manitou Incline was once a railroad with at least 2744 steps.
It was not easy climbing in here but it’s fun. It’s bonding with nature and it’s healthwise.
As 2017 ticks along, April is visible in the next few weeks and what seemed like a far off event is literally just around the corner. The Aintree Racecourse is getting ready to host the UK’s biggest horse racing event of the year. The Grand National is one of the country’s most eagerly anticipated sporting events and millions of people tune in to watch it every year.
If you are one of the around 150 000 racegoers that are expected to attend the event over the three day period, then you can really make your experience as awesome as possible with just a little preparation.
Here’s the ultimate checklist for the Grand National 2017:
Know when the races are taking place
While many people attend the races for the social scene, most of them have also put bets on the horses and are hoping that they’ve backed a winner. Whether you are there for the races or the entertainment – do yourself a favour and grab a Grand National Ladies Day event guide brought to you by William Hill – to ensure that you don’t miss a thing.
Get your bets in early
Whether you are betting online or in person – you should always make sure that you do so well in advance. The traffic to websites spikes just before a big race and this can cause it to crash or slow down heavily and the queues at ticketing stations run the risk of not moving fast enough to place your bet in time.
Lose a bet gracefully
No one likes a bad loser, and you are bound to have a few bad bets as well as good ones. Ensure that if you win that you do it graciously and share the positive energy around. If you lose however, don’t fret, stress or make others around you uncomfortable. Remember that there are other aspects of the day to be enjoyed.
Let out your inner fashionista
For many people the Grand National is about being seen and it is the perfect occasion to dress to impress. Remember that it’s spring so don’t wear anything that’s going to be too hot, but also keep in mind that the weather is unpredictable and you should bring something warm with you in case. Get on your most fabulous shoes, beautiful dress and of course statement hat to make sure you stand out from the crowds. Heels are a great idea but keep in mind you’ll be walking on grass – so factor that in before you pop on the stilettos.
Simply enjoy the spectacle
The Grand National is ultimately about providing entertainment and is meant to be enjoyed. Some people take the event a bit too seriously and seem to stress about everything just a bit too much to have fun. Don’t fret too much about your bets or what you look like, and rather just let yourself enjoy this annual spectacle as much as possible. Drink, dance and eat to your heart’s content and simply have a great time.
Last night, I tried to call up Citi for my credit card since I already did a balance transfer on my new bank to save some bucks from the interest. I talked to a customer service and I asked where their customer service center location was. The one who answered said that they were located in India. I kept on asking him to repeat some of his words as I couldn’t understand some part of it (maybe he couldn’t understand my accent as well :D), until he transferred me to another department which was the fraud department to confirm if it’s really me. I knew the girl had a Filipino accent and I was happy to hear it. I asked her if I can speak with her in Tagalog or Bisayan dialect but she said that I needed to talk to her in English for quality assurance purposes. Well, okay. After she reset my security question, she transferred me back to that Indian customer service. So, I think Citi call centers were located in India and in the Philippines. Anyway, I asked that CS of why until now that it’s March the balance transfer that was being sent and processed by my new bank last end of February wasn’t reflected in my account when the other banks like Chase and Bank of America accepted my balance transfers for a long time. That Indian Customer Service replied to me, that it was not received by their company coz maybe it was lost by the mail. What the..?
So, maybe I need to do another balance transfer (?!). Oh well, I’ll do another balance transfer at the end of March (I think) if my balance transfer payment will still not reflect in my Citi account. Anyway, Citi card is a good credit company (positive review on their side).
Anyway, relying on credit cards for emergency purchases or for any other purchases is not really a good thing. I learned my lessons already. Building good credit history is okay. But I think, I really need to build my saving power, I mean, who need a good credit history when a person has lots of cash? Well, lessons learned. Enough is enough in using my credit cards. But I thank God for my experiences though!
Oh I love bitcoin but sadly I am not an investor of it. It is good news today for bitcoin investors as this cost more than the gold today. Wow! Anyway, I have known a friend who invested a lot with bitcoin and pretty sure she’s having great gain with her bitcoins. It’s such a blessing for everyone!
