Trying to think ahead for the holiday parties that I’ll be attending this year and planning my wardrobe around the dresses, shoes and jewelry. I had to throw out a few things and now I need to replace them. I want a couple of pretty sweaters or long sleeved dresses, but all the holiday dresses seem to be either sleeveless or short sleeved. What is wrong with these designers? Some of us don’t like our arms and shoulders to be covered in goosebumps. We need long sleeved fancy dresses!
Thanks to a friend who gave me the heads up on another free music service online. This one is called Spotify. Its also free, but it limits you to a certain number of total hours each month or you hae to pay monthly for unlimited free streaming music. The advantage to Spotify is that you can select any particular song you want and generate a complete playlist of songs. They let you share playlists among other users, so if you get tired of the same old same old, you can grab someone else’s playlist and listen to something completely different for a couple of hours.
For about two years I’ve been listening to free music online by using a web site called Pandora. It’s a good service – you only have to endure a few commercials to get the free version. The only issue I have with Pandora is that you cannot pick the actual individual song that you want to hear. You can only select an artist and hope that they eventually get around to playing the particular song you want. And the music only streams while you have an internet connection. You cannot download any of the music and listen to it offline. But as a free service, it’s pretty nice.
