First I want to thank everyone who wished Niel well. He and I both appreciated your thoughfulness. It made us feel good. He is slowly getting better!

I received a meme from Shanny and I finally have a chance to respond! Thanks Shanny. I have to list 10 songs from my mp3 player. I don't have an mp3 player, so I'll just list some from my computer. This was difficult to choose. I love all types of music.

1. "Desert Rose" Sting
2. "Hey Mama" Black Eyed Peas
3. "Ms. Jackson" Outkast
4. "All I Want Is You" U2
5. "Sweet Home Alabama" Lynrd Skynrd
6. "Something So Strong" Crowded House
7. "Wide Open Spaces" Dixie Chicks
8. "Pictures of You" The Cure
9. "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
10. "Synthesizer" - Electric Six

The hubby and I currently share a computer and he has a heck of a lot more music than I do. I haven't found the time to get more. Most of the music we both like. So its good. The total amount from both of us is 382 albums, 419 artists, 87 genres, 91 songs. Although Niel believes we have more.

The last CD you bought is: I actually brought two new cd's. U2: How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, and Gwen Stefani's debut album.

What is the song you last listened to before this message? "Fell Inlove with A Girl"by the White Stripes.

Write down five songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you. Oh lord this is a tough one. There are so many.

1. "Love Song" by The Cure.
2. "Winter Love" The Doors (My wedding song)
3. "Instant Karma" John Lennon
4. "Eleanor Rigby" The Beatles
5. "Maybe I'm Amazed" Paul McCartney

Who are you gonna pass this stick to (three persons and why)?
Kim cause I want to know besides Dave Matthews what she listens to, Irah and Tammy cause I am curious.

I found out neat info from this month's issue of Martha Stewart Living:

"Cacao Beans, from which chocolate is made, were once so valuable to the Nahua Indians of Mexico that their centers, called nibs, were used as money.

William Faulkner wrote his 1936 novel Absalom, Absalom! using a fountain pen, changing inks from blue to green to black at different points in the manuscript.

Pasta was not commonly eaten in the United States until the late nineteenth century, but Thomas Jefferson developed quite a liking for it while serving as an ambassador in Europe. In 1788, he sent his secretary to Naples purchase a macaroni machine.

Quilting became so popular in the 1920's that when the Depression hit, flour companies started packaging their goods in colorful patterned sacks. Thrifty quilters would use the flour, then incorporate the sack fabric into their crafts.

Demand for coffee increased sharply in the American colonies following the Boston Tea Party; at that point it was considered a patriotic gesture to choose coffee over tea.

Only 54% of Valentine's Day cards are delivered through the mail the rest are hand-delivered."

I updated my "Help in The Kitchen" section. I actually renamed it to "Help In The Home". Since the info I have can be used outside of the kitchen. All added material is at the end. I update that, along with my "In The Pot" and "Popcorn Bowl", "Ticket Stub", sections quite frequenlty. My "Headphones and "Workbag" sections a little often.

Hey is that a typo? How can you have 382 albums and only 91 songs? hehe. Wouldn't you have at least 382 songs? I'll have to check my iTunes at home see what my stats are.
