Rockin' Around Blogland

Ok, I admit it.  I am a music nerd.  Despite my son's best efforts, his mom is not technologically adept and has never downloaded a song from I-tunes or put music I own in the cloud. And modern music leaves me - well - uninspired.  I like oldies.  And I like country.  Sometimes.

Anyway, for my birthday this year WH bought me an I-phone.  I immediately fell in love with the JoAnn's ap.  I am all about having those coupons HANDY.

But today I was surfing around blogland instead of making the quilt top of the baby quilt I'm making for the Operazzi Ball auction, and I ran across this post and it made me literally laugh out loud!  Scroll all the way down and look at the music Amy discovered in her basement.

What do these two facts have in common you ask?

Well, the other day I headed into the sewing room to do a little fabric therapy, and decided it would be even more relaxing to have a little music.  I had recently downloaded the Pandora ap for my I-phone, but the only stations I had in my Pandora account were Christmas songs.  So, I punched the "new station" button and it said, "Enter artist or song".  Well, I was stumped - what song?  What artist?  Hmmm, do I dare?   My go-to all-time-favorite group was - well - Simon and Garfunkle.  Ah, who cares?  I no longer have children in my home to laugh at me, so what the hey!  I punched it in, and now I'm transported to my childhood.  Literally.

But guess what other artists are on that station?  John Denver, The Beatles, James Taylor, Billy Joel...

Ah, quilting heaven.


  1. Ha ha! Welcome to the 21st century! BTW you need to subscribe to Joann's texts too. They often give you an extra coupon. One day I used on Joanns app, one text message and two paper coupons ! Good times!

  2. I used to laugh at my mum when she played S&G at home. Then in my 20s I discovered that I LOVE them too. I was lucky enough to go and see them a few years ago on their final tour in the UK. I went with my parents and my brother, it was incredible.

  3. You like the same music that I do, I wonder if I can get a Pandora app for my Blackberry. I have to wait until the end of the year and then I'll be getting an iphone, too. You seem to like the same music I do. Neil Diamond, too.


I love comments! Please - make my day!
