It’s been a long time since I’ve done any type of shuffle on this blog. Lots going on at a personal level. But even with all that, music is still my healing mechanism. Once Thanksgiving rolls around, I start getting into the holiday spirit. One of the first places I go to is to music. This year is no exception. This Christmas will hold many firsts for me. And I’m okay with that. So tonight, I am putting aside all the angst and rhetoric that goes along with this blog and focusing on music. Songs from my earliest memories to the present day.

Heck, in the spirit of Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate), let’s put all the festive stuff here!
A note to newer readers who haven’t been here since the beginning. Back in 2014, in the first six months or so of this blog, I picked up an idea from Kilroy’s Delaware to add Twitter hashtags to each title. I didn’t realize this was highly annoying to many readers until someone pointed it out to me. I’ve cleaned up some of those old stories and removed those hashtags, but I saw doing this a lot of the Christmas themed articles still have them. My apologies! Last year I took a long overdue vacation from the blog so only a couple of articles saw the light.
