She and her twin sister have their birthday on the 23rd (Thursday), so I've got some stuff lined up for them. The wife wants a gift card to Victoria's Secret and a pair of running shoes (easy enough) and my sis-in-law is a total tech geek, so she's easy to please with a quick trip to Best Buy.

All I asked for is a few Blu-Rays and a new beard-trimmer (love sporting the scruff during winter). I bought two new TV's and a new car this year, so I'm more focused on giving this holiday season.
Stop playing...she said "jump" and you said "high dear?" Mine is trying to get rid of my perfectly fine bachelor furniture and "we" both decided "we" would.

Re: What you want or getting for Xmas!!????!!!

As a family we are sponsoring a family that we will buy some presents for the kids and something for them to give to mom and dad. We also buy them food for a christmas dinner and other esentials. When we all chip in we spend around $400 to $500 and its only $50 per family to make these kids christmas a happy one.

That's awesome

All I want for Christmas is a healthy child. As many of you know, my wife is expecting our first child this spring, and it's been unfortunately a challenging pregnancy. Honestly it's very touch and go right now. I've already lost 5 relatives this year, not sure how much more loss I can take. So my parents, in-laws, etc. have asked me what I want for Christmas and I really can't think of a single thing. Really nothing matters other than this baby.

Back in the day when I worked in Marriott sales , Bose was one of my clients. they built their own mountain to place their headquarters on top in Framingham Mass. It is so sick! They have all these different demo rooms set up and stuff.

About Bose - Directions to Bose
For car audio also. Polk Audio made the best subs I ever had in a car (had JBL, Kenwood, Rockford Fosgate, many other brands). Polks hit the cleanest and hardest. The best were a pair of 10s in a bandpass box...people thought I had 15s. They were incredible.

Bose is good for home, but they're nothing special for cars. They're often installed as "premium" or upgraded factory systems. They usually have a small factory amp that allows them to sound better than the factory system. So yeah, they're a lot better than the base stock system, but I'd never upgrade to one. My wife's car had a Monsoon system from the factory, it thumped for a stock radio, but I've since replaced it with a Blaupunkt HU and Pioneer speakers (they're cheap) and it sounds better.

My favorite brands for car audio:

Subs - Polk Audio, prefer 10s for clarity, still plenty of bass
HU - Blaupunkt or Alpine, Eclipse is good too
Speakers - Infinity (have in my car) or Pioneer if on budget
Amps - Have had Alpines and Kenwood that were good, but the best bang-for-the-buck is California Amps made by Profile. They're very underrated and are awesome performers, especially for subs. Had one of these back in the day, still my favorite of all I owned. Was bulletproof too, survived 2 car accidents (nether my fault) and still kicked.



Now they look more like this:



And of course, I always did my own installs.

Wow...I hope the baby and mother are both safe for you too. Even in an ordinary pregnancy, it's still a nonstop worry until the baby is actually born. The protective parenting instincts kick in before birth.

Please keep us updated, hopefully with positive news.

Actually, believe or not it was my idea. Her birthday is two days before Xmas, so she's already getting some gifts from me for that. We're looking to buy a house next fall, so we need to be upgrading/buying more furniture anyway. Honestly, I'm psyched to get a new TV stand. The one we're using now for a largest TV is too small. Looks silly in the living room. We're still renting, so I'm not going to wall-mount. Too much of a pain to fix when we move out.

Here's hoping you have a happy and healthy holiday season, and more importantly, and healthy little one this spring.

Sorry I had no clue about your wife and her pregnancy. I will keep you guys in my thoughts and please keep us updated.

We actually decide not to sponsor a family this year and instead we are going to donate the money to a battered womens home that is having financial problems. They are actually to the point of having to close their doors so we are donating to them and asking friends to do the same. The club I'm in is going to do a quick vote tonight at our Christmas party to donate some money to the home.
