For those of you who know me, know I enjoy Christmas music year-round.  I’ll even find myself jogging to a “random” list on my iPod and a Christmas song will pop on… i’ll look around (as if people are aware of what i’m listening to?) and just keep on jogging without changing the song.

So, today I did a couple searches for “Christmas music radio online” and wasn’t very successful… DUH, I forgot to check the radio stations in iTunes! There’s an entire CATEGORY for “Christmas.”  *fist pump* Yessss! Almost every day during work, I’ll choose a radio station in iTunes to listen to quietly…FlatFoot Records is a great “college” radio station. Check it out.

Today I’m listening to “Always Christmas” under the “Holidays” radio category. Enjoy!!

Here’s a bigger picture of how to access the radio stations in iTunes.

gmail

moto Q

GMail for Windows Mobile 6.0

This site really helped me set up my Gmail account on my Motorola Q (PDA).  I had originally set up my Gmail email account on my phone as a POP3. Bad choice. It would display received emails whenever it decided to, and sometimes for only a certain period of time (15 mintues.)  OH, but then once I’d viewed the email 1 time- POOF! It would disappear from phone, no where to be found. Anyway, my friend/coworker, Chris sent me a link to the above page. I have much more control over my GMail on my phone now that I set it up as an IMAP4 account. I can now even access the folders within  my actual GMail account, and it keeps my emails banked on my phone until I decide what to do with them.

I hope this helps you if you’re having the same issues I was.

I feel like a true AMERICAN this morning. I went to my local “early voting” location, which was a small fire station, and I casted my VOTE! Yippee!!!  It’s amazing how many of us taking our right to vote for granted. There are so many women/people around the world who do not have the same right in their country. This was my first time to vote and I feel proud!

Many people also are easily intimidated by the voting process or aren’t sure what to expect, but it really wasn’t very difficult. I found my voting location online, walked in, showed my voter registration card, was handed a perforated carbon copy packed paper with my personal information listed, which was taken from me when I was guided to my voting booth. Then the lady explained what would happen once she keyed in my “number” and how to select candidates, etc… The voting booth was an electronic touch-screen. It was very simple. After reviewing my selections, I smacked the “VOTE” button at the top of the screen that was flashing red. DONE!  I couldn’t help but let the smile form across my face. I wanted to do it all over again. “Excuse me, can you turn this thing back on, please?!”

If you’re not sure if you’re going to vote, just get over it and VOTE! Many people think “Oh, I’m just one person, I can’t make a difference…” Just imagine if ALL of those folks who had the same thought were to actually vote. Hmmmm… think about  it.

PS- Elephants are some of my favorite animals.

Yea, that’s probably because you’re like 43 by now.
