And what a beautiful Friday morning it is, the sun is shining, the skys are blue, and I’m wearing my sandals. LOL 😀

I’ve been changing my boots for more appropriate footwear, and oh my goodness… I’ve gotten some blisters. The shoes fit, it’s just I’m not used to wearing them for eight or more hours. So today, it’s my comfy sandal day. I wear these all the time, I’ve traveled in them- from Fort Wayne airport to Chicago and finally to Dallas. I’ve walked miles and miles at various conventions; GenCon and Wizard World Chicago. And at the end of the day, my feet are tired but not OMG sore! Best sandals ever from Sketchers! I’m going to have to find a second pair. I’ll probably bury these when they are no longer wearable. LOL I’m silly.

And a brief app review:
Rdio not to shabby. I’m not to sure about the 14 day trial, when I saw it on Appsgofree I thought it was free Free!! But for the moment, it’s cool. However it’s not really a radio app, it has a search function, and yay! I was able to find a few artists I wanted to listen to. And you’re able to close the app, and go play on other apps. So that’s cool. Also when your auto-lock engages, the music is still playing. We’ll see if I pay for this one.

Anyone know of a good radio app? There’s times I just want to listen to one of my two favorite radio stations, 107.9 out of Indy- plays a lot of music and it’s not all the trendy stuff. Just a nice mix. My other favorite radio station is 104.9 out of Muncie/New Castle, an oldies station. I like listening to their play list too. They’ve started playing more than just oldies, and it’s a good fit.

So that’s the brief app review.

I hope ya’ll have a lovely Friday, and a great weekend!

some new music
