Speaking Out

Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Pumpkin, Toffee Coffee, Peach, and Very Berry.

Chocolite Bars: Buy 3 Cases (48 bars), get a free 15 dollar yogurt card.

Two weekends left for your holiday shopping. One of our customers just asked us if it would be OK to pick the chocolates and other snacks up now or if she should wait. The answer is now if you want to make sure that we have it. Unless you are planning on giving bakery items for Christmas, the other gifts will all be fresh and good for Christmas.

I looked last night at new speakers for our computer at home. Boy, does this get confusing. After three hours of research, I came to the conclusion that if you're not looking to spend a lot of money, you're going to end up on the short side of sound on either the high, mid, or low range depending on the set.

The good news is that many of the middle priced speakers ($50 to $100) actually seem to get pretty good reviews despite their reported shortcomings. Since we're really looking for something to listen to music with first and play games second, that does help to narrow it done. If I can make it to Fry's or Best Buy to give some of the units a listen, I might be able to make a decision this weekend.

I look at these as a type of Christmas present to us. Although the speakers we have now are good enough to play games with and listen to music while we are at the computer, the new ones will allow us to fill the room and possibly more with music. For this, we need a little more power than the current 12 Watt system. I am, however, trying to be good and not go overboard.
