Not a lot to report, so I wander

Not a lot to report. I'm going back to bed in a little bit. Last night's triumph was getting Pandora to play on the netbook -- Haysus the Asus -- meaning I can have my music wherever I want in the house. Like bedside, near the humidifier and the Kleenex. Otherwise, a ramble.

Hey, 98.6 I'd love to have you back again


hope to follow the Ravens online, would love to be able to watch. This depends on several things, including me being awake.

Meanwhile, Temp still not exactly where I expect it... local and regional accents being what they are I thought I was being given "C-Pack" and that's not it at all. Whatever it is, it is doing stuff, yessir.

I won der -- is their someway I can ban the Beatles from a "channel" on Pandora. I absolutely am not buying beatles music, and most of it doesn't stand up well to say ... The Rolling Stones. Maybe I just got cynical in my old age.

    Neilg Young, Sugar Mountain

And this just in -- PKD nominees

I *do hope* they have it right, but I got this and it snd it said for immediate release:
