All my favorite songs have the same thing in common.

If anyone can I dentify these four chords I would love to know.  Then I will be able to play all my favorites.

My Favorite App

This post is dedicated to my favorite "legal" app from the app store. As many of you know I watch about 60 hours of TV a week. It's my other job. The pay isn't good but the payoff is priceless. Ask anybody that's played TV/Movie SceneIt with Brenda and me.
I recently switched to DirecTV after DishNetwork notified us that they were raising their rates. Even after they dropped our local American Idol station. Anyway, I love DirecTV especially the ability to set my DVR from my phone. Here's some pics of the process. If any of you already have DirecTV and you don't have this set up yet, you don't know what you're missing.

Step 1:
Get DirecTV
If you don't already have it, you can comment and I'll give you a
 code that will give you a Benjamin($100) to switch.

Step 2:
Download the DirecTV App from the AppStore
It's free.

Step 3:
Click on App Icon

Step 4:
Search for your Show or Channel

Step 5:
Choose to record The Episode or The Series

There ya go. I use this app several times a week. Especially when Jenny talks about shows she watches.  If she likes a show it has to be good, right?

Don't you hate it when you want to be entertained and they try to sneak in a commercial on you? I hate that!! The biggest culprits are Idol sponsored by Ford & Coke and Biggest Loser sponsored by 24Hour fitness & Subway. They remind me of the Truman show. Give me a break. If I wanted commercials I would watch you live. ::gag:: 

You need to have an internet connection to your DVR. You can either connect it directly or wirelessly. Let me know if you have questions. Enjoy!!

Surgery today.

Brenda's getting ready to roll into surgery and I just realized I
didn't tell you guys what's going on.

Ever since her c-section her voice hasn't worked right. They checked
it out and she developed a growth on her vocal cord from the
intubation. Today they're gonna remove it and hopefully give Brenda
back her voice.

Keep us in your prayers.

Do You Smell That? Yep that's my new car.

Well after much research a few sleepless moments and an "intense" negotiation with the loco-al Hyundai dealer, we made the short drive to Magic Mountain and bought a car from them.  What a difference.  I don't know how the Bako Hyundai dealer stays in business with how poorly they treat their customers. 

Before we went to the first dealer, Brenda was so excited to have her first new car buying experience and naievly thought it would be "fun."  

We used to watch a reality show on A&E called "King of Cars" that follows a crazy car dealership in Vegas. They make the car buying experience look fun. Brenda was very disappointed. At one point, 4 hours into it, Brenda complained of a headache and said, "Just take me home." It was kind of like a kid who sees their mom pushing a vacuum and thinks it looks like fun. They want to try it. Then after 3 passes they realizes it's work. 

Let's just say when it comes to buying cars I put on my "game face." I get like Donald Trump and no deal is good enough until I'm convinced they are losing money by selling the car to me. I know it's ruthless, but it's my money! They can make money off the next guy. 

Long story long we ended up driving to Valencia and the buying experience was what Brenda thought the first experience would be like. We did all the negotiating online and a couple phone  calls and when walked into the dealership there; easy breezy and it was a done deal. NICE!!

Needless to say we love our new car and it will serve our growing family well.
