Flying Drones Were Popular In 2014 And Will Be Hot In 2015

 Yes the flying drones are going to be a hot toy for 2015. Yes even in 2014 they were very popular. You know when I was a kid we did not have anything like these flying drones. The closest thing we had to a drone may have been a light wooden glider with a wind up rubber band. These glider air planes are still available at Amazon and Ebay today. I remember a few years ago buying one for my son. But the flying drones are just amazing and can do some awesome flying maneuvers. It is one of those toys that I would definitely recommend to anyone for an awesome gift.

It's The Season For Giving So Donate A Toy, Clothing, Food Or Something For Someone In Need


   If you are interested in donating here is a link to the website , so spread some Christmas cheer this holiday season  http://www.toysfortots.org/default.aspx .
This is the season of giving so why don't you buy at least one toy and donate it to the poor. This way a young child who has little will have something. It does not necessarily have to be a toy. It can be
some kind of food or maybe some clothing. I remember when I was a kid growing up the church always had a basket where you could donate something for the poor. I think every kid always brought in some canned food or boxed food. I do think I remember some kind of a toy being in the basket. It always made me feel good in my heart to give something. I can remember growing up and not having very much ourselves. My mom and dad were divorced, so we lived with our grandparents. I remember going to some veterans club or something where they gave us dinner and then gave us a toy. I never forgot that and I never will. Here is an excellent website
  So during this holiday season donate something, because it comes from your heart.

  Thank You and HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!!!!!!

Winter Is Here And It's Time For Warm Boots

  It is cold and snowy here in New York. Yes the snow has arrived and you do need some kind of Warm Winter Boots to wear outside. I still have my old hunting insulated boots that I wore every time I was out in the woods hunting for deer or small game. Those boots always kept my feet warm and dry. When you are out in the woods in snow you will need good warm boots.
  Of course there are different kinds of winter boots. I remember some winter boots that looked like a dress boot, so you could wear them anywhere. When I was a young child we had our buckle boots that slipped over our shows. Yes they were not easy to put on when you are a kid. My mother had us slip plastic bags over our shoes and they went on much easier. Eventually I had similar boots, but they had a zipper. Then as I got older we had the green tall boots that you put your foot in with no shoe. They had long laces that tied all the way up. We wore heavy warm tall socks and those boots kept you feet very warm especially when you were sledding down that hill in the cold weather.
  As I got older I did have more adult boots that looked like a dress boot. They were not bad at all. They were warm and comfortable as well as easy to slip on. The only problem is that you had to bring your shoes or sneakers with you. Then I did have another boot that tied all the way up, but had a liner to keep your feet warm and dry. You will find that some boots can be expensive and others can be fairly cheap. Usually you can find them at target or at walmart. There are plenty of boot you can find through Ebay or Amazon. So there are plenty of different kinds of winter boots to choose from. Some boots are comfortable to wear all day while others are not. So don't wait for your feet to get cold, buy those Warm Winter Boots today.  My advise is read the reviews before buying.
  Thank You for reading and Happy Holidays.

How About Giving Gift Cards For Christmas

  If you are older and can not get around like you used to or you want to make gift giving simple how about giving some GIFT CARDS to your family and friends. There are gift cards for all the major stores and even online store like amazon.com and ebay. There are gift cards for toys, food, musical instruments and much much more. They used to give us gift cards at Christmas for Wegmans Food Stores. I know when they did that it saved us some money and helped in different ways. It is one of those things that you can put in a Christmas Card for your family and friends. GIFT CARDS would make a nice stocking stuffer for someone. Maybe a gift card for buying video games. The other nice thing is that if you do not know what to give someone they can go to the store and buy the gift that they prefer.
  If you do give a gift card make sure of what the expiration date is on it. I know that some of them do and if you do not buy something by that date then you lose out. So make sure you do not lose your gift card and make sure to use it as soon as possible. There are many different kinds of gift cards for example E-GIFT CARDS . There are gift cards that are basically a debit card for Visa where you can specify a certain amount of money.
  As far as my personal feeling goes I would not give GIFT CARDS to someone as a main gift. To me it would be more of an additional gift. I still like giving someone something that they like all wrapped up, so I can see the joy and happiness on their face when they open their presents on Christmas Day.  I don't think I would like to see a Christmas Tree with nothing but GIFT CARDS under it. It just doesn't seem right. As usual with anything there are good and bad points to the giving of gift cards. I would just keep it as something else to give someone.

A Shortwave Radio New Or Used Makes An Awesome Gift For Christmas

  Christmas is getting ever closer and I am sure you are thinking about all the presents you would like to see under your Christmas Tree this year. One of those awesome gifts could be a nice Shortwave Radio. You can choose from a new shortwave radio or you can choose a nice used shortwave radio. If you are a collector of SHORTWAVE RADIOS or AMATEUR RADIOS I would search through Amazon.com and Ebay. Just make sure to check on the reviews and the reviews of the seller first. There quite a few different brands of shortwave radios to pick from. There are the ever popular Grundig Shortwave Radios, which do an awesome job. I know my Satelit 750 has always amazed me. It came in very handy when my Amateur Ham Radio was in for service.

Where Can I Find That Christmas Present Online

  Yes at this time of year we are all thinking about what to put on our Christmas lists. Yes get out there and find whatever you want to find under your Christmas Tree. It can be anything from a toy, Ham Radios , Book, Tool Set, Stereo or anything. So find those special Christmas Gifts now. We always seem to buy some inexpensive things and one present that is a little more expensive. Of course that is what our budget is like. If you can afford the expensive things then I say go for it.
  This time of year through the holidays is really a time for giving and not for getting. If you are religious then I would look for some nice things to put up around your house, apartment or room.We usually have some ceramic items like a ceramic turkey for thanksgiving or some pilgrims. Now for Christmas I think it's always important to have a nice Nativity Set . If you not religious look for a good Santa Claus and a nice Christmas Tree with plenty of lights and tinsel.
  One item that is always nice is to have a good book on Christmas. The story of Santa Claus or Twas The Night Before Christmas is always great to read to your children. Popular items all year round these days are all the different video games. There are so many all I can say is search for what you like or look at some youtube videos about the video game. Also check out reviews on a video game you may be interested in.
  If you are doing some shopping on the internet then I am going to suggest either Amazon.com or Ebay. If you are shopping at stores then go to your local shopping malls. Stores like Toy r Us are the best for toys. My other favorites stores are best buy, the Guitar Center, Rowe Photography, Target, Home Depot, Lowes and Sears. Of course there are many many other excellent stores to choose from to buy that special Christmas Gift .
 Thank You for reading and get that Christmas Shopping done.

Read Any Good Ham Radio Books Lately Or Just Studying For Your Next Ham Radio License

  Now may be the time to get your next study manual for your next ham radio license. Maybe you have decided to go for your first Technician License. Either way there are plenty of good study manuals available. Yes there are plenty of free websites that offer free study material. I have done that myself and it was very helpful. I did have some old Ham Radio Study Manuals from radio shack quite a few years ago when I started thinking about going for my first Ham Radio License. My favorite choice now is to purchase the Gordon West Study Manual for the Ham Radio Extra License.
  Yes at this point I have my General Ham Radio License and I am starting to study for the Extra Ham Radio License. I am going to get it through Amazon, so I can study through the winter months and then take it during the summer. That is what I did to get my General Ham License and it worked out very well. So maybe you should put one of them or more than one on your Christmas list. The nice thing with these study manuals is that you can purchase it with the audio cd, manual and practice tests. Of course there are other study manuals that are very good as well. The arrl study manuals are a good example.
  There are also plenty of other books on various subjects that have to do with Ham Radio. You may find plenty of books on antenna building. You may be interested in building a moxon antenna, dipole wire antenna or maybe a yagi antenna. There are also books on other subjects that are related to radio, such as shortwave radio or Electronics and Electronic Test Equipment. You may also be interested in one of the ARRL Ham Radio Manuals that have an unbelievable amount of information. My advise is to go through amazon and ebay. There are also plenty of Ham Radio Dealers on the internet that carry books on ham radio as well. Universal radio and MFJ are sources for good reading material on hame radio.
  Well that's all for now so Thank You for reading and Merry Christmas !!!!!!
