Listening to my Last.fm radio station through their Facebook app … an expansion on my favorite music. Nice service.

Decorated little tree last night. L. said, “Now, Christmas is in my heart.”
@apeterson Is there something wrong with being rooted in the past (even before the ’90s)? So long as it allows the canopy to grow stronger.
