It’s All About the Music Today!

Today, I’m working on the house and playing some of my fave CDs. I have one of those nifty speaker systems that is built into every room so I can listen anywhere. It’s up loud. Yeah. You will come to find upon further visits to my blog, that my taste in music is all over […]

Mountain View and SETI

Before I got distracted again, I was pondering the answer to the great Mountain View, California debate. I have this blog and two online stores with site meters.
