Just listen to me, I know what I am talking about

To me, music is important. I don't think I could make it through a day of work without my iPod anymore. Luckily, my wife is also into music; we share a lot of the same tastes in music (which helps with CD purchases), but not always. Here are a couple recommendations that you may feel are old, outdated, boring, slow, whatever. These are two artists I started listening to in high school. Both are extremely talented musicians/groups who are still to this day making music after decades.

--Stevie Wonder--
Some Favorite Song Titles: I Wish, These Three Words, Overjoyed, Ribbon in the Sky, Knocks Me Off My Feet, You and I, Superstition, Blame It On the Sun, I Believe, Sir Duke, Living for the City, For Once In My Life, That Girl

Some Favorite Song Titles: Lets see, the entire first album (under the name Chicago Transit Authority), the entire second album (you have to listen straight through), the fifth album (one of my favorite first records, which I still have), Alive Again, Old Days, Free, and a lot of the ninth album (Greatest Hits 1)

I have many, many, many more favorite songs of many genres. If you would like to discuss music, or view my library, let me know.

I really, really don't understand what the deal is with running stop signs. It is becoming so prevalent that I now assume most people will do it. In my observations I can even watch cars and a lot of times tell who will do it. And what's worse, are the stop signs at work (we have many). They might as well not even be there because they give a false sense of security to me, the pedestrian, that a car might actually stop there. I just get sick of feeling that people feel that their life is so much more significant than everyone else's that they must rush ahead of others to save precious seconds causing frustration and worry to those abiding by the laws.

And don't even get me started on those people with 'Kids First' license plates, speeding through school zones... but I digress.

I am revamping the new site as I never really liked the way it started. I just got something going originally. I am close to a layout I like and soon, I can leave it alone for a while.
