Tunes, jams, MUSIC

I listen to a pretty good variety of music. Madonna to Metallica, Bach to the Beatles, the Stones to Supertramp.

Thing is, I like to really mix it up in the car.

Luckily, my hubby installed his old car radio in my car - and it has a USB slot. I have an 8GB thumb drive with hundreds of my songs (ripped from MY CDs thankyouverymuch) on it.

My favorite thing to do with my music list is to put it on Shuffle.

I refer to it as the "Music Mix of DOOOM".

On my way to work the other morning, I heard Madonna followed by Seals and Croft and the Violent Femmes. Then Metallica followed by Lonestar and Tone Loc.

And yes, I sang along with each song. Like a boss. Ok, like a tone deaf boss - but whatever. At 6:30am no one else should care!

I've been told I actually sing fairly well - but I will only do it in the car. Think the Flintstones - when Barney had to sing for a commercial - they put him in a tub. The episode is called The Flintstone Canaries.

Ahh... good times.

What do you like to listen to?
Any "Car tunes" that you HAVE to have in order to move on down the highway?

Winning is fun!

All of my friends know I enter *zillions* of blog giveaways.
Ok, maybe not that many - but still.

Sometimes I even win!
2 of the items below came in the mail today. What a nice treat to come home to!

A couple of weeks ago I won a "flash giveaway" from "What's Cooking Love" over on Facebook.
It was a $25 Visa Gift card!
Alyssa is a sweetheart - I got the thing in less than 2 days. :)

I also won "The Laughing Tree Organics" giveaway over at "Peace Love Organic Mom". I can't wait to use my Citrus shampoo and conditioner... and the lip balm is YUMMY!

I just opened up the "Eggland's Best Baking Kit" that I won from "Mostly Food and Crafts". An Apron, whisk, spatula, bowl scraper, re-usable shopping bag, and a nice *big* glass bowl - all branded with Eggland's Best.
Oh, and a certificate for a dozen eggs too.

Word of warning - looking around at Danielle's blog (Mostly Food and Crafts) is liable to make you HUNGRY.

Just sayin'.

The title of my post is "Winning is fun!" but it is more than that. I have found some great blogs while doing the blog-hop-boogie and entering everything I can get my keyboard & mouse on. There are so many bloggers putting up so many cool posts - and the recipes? WOW!

Thanks for stopping by -
