Music.....

Just wanting to share a music site my mom told me about: http://musicovery.com/index.php?ct=us

You pick what kind of mood you're in: Calm or Energetic, Dark or Positive, what genres of music you like, and it gives you a line-up and starts to play. Kind of an online i-pod, it seems. Anyway, it's pretty cool.

This morning I picked calm & positive and so far I've heard Dave Brubeck, Nora Jones, Natalie Cole, Chris Rae, and Ry Cooder. Django Reinhardt & Michel Petrucciani are up next. A few of these musicians (Chris Rae, Django Reinhardt & Michel Petrucciani) I've never heard of before. Anyway, give it a go. It's nice to have somebody else pick the line-up for a change. I get to hear new things this way. And nothing I haven't liked yet.

Oh, and thanks for all the comments about the flower pics. I've been loving seeing all these flowers. We had some good rain, and some decently heavy winds last night, though, that knocked over one of my poppy plants. It had 3 blooms, and a number more pods ready to bloom, and I think it was just too heavy to keep standing in the wind. I'm going to tie it up before I head to work, hopefully the stem wasn't broken & it will recover.

My little red flowers are all gone. On Saturday I had 8 of the little blue flowers on that one plant. I've got a couple more of the Gerbera daisies now. 3 all together. I've also got a couple of little purple ones that are blooming & are such a pretty lavendar color.

Connie, I hope those poppies will bloom for you this coming spring!!!!

Have a Blessed Day!

Thanks for the link, I'll have to check it out.

I hope your flowers continue to do well.

I have a signal! It is sketchy (don't know how long it will hold) and not the one from the school, but it's a welcome sight (as is your blog).

Sounds like a great site. I'll have to take a look at that one.

Hope your plant wasn't too badly damaged and that it recovers nicely.

Hi Kati....I'll have to try the music site. I just posted about one called Pandora.com....you pick a song you've always liked and they play songs similar to it. Then you rate their choices (tell them what you like and don't like).

It's a project of some kind, so while you're getting free music, they're figuring out what makes songs similar to people (kind of....).
