I drove by a bunch of fellows dressed up in orange and black bumble-bee striped outfits picking up trash along the roadside the other day. These enviromentalists were enthusiastically picking up McDonalds bags, Starbucks latte cups, PBR cans and whatever else mindless idiots toss out of their cars. What a treat to actually see someone "pay back their debt to society". How 'bout we turn off their taxpayer funded cable for a couple of weeks this summer and have them learn how to fix potholes?
i admit I am not as "tech savvy" as I would like to be. Needed a little help programming a ringtone into my cell phone so I asked number one son Kyle to give me a hand. Mission accomplished and Kyle proceeds to inform me about "Pandora". This is a really cool website for people who enjoy listening to music while putzing around on the computer.
Here's how it works: after setting up an account (did I mention this is free?!) you enter a song or artist you like and Pandora creates a "radio station" for you featuring songs similar to your entry. Let's say you like "Laughter In the Rain" by Neil Sedaka. If you truly do like "Laughter in the Rain" by Neil Sedaka forget about Pandora and go directly to "Web MD" and get some help. Quickly.
