That’s right.  Don’t Stop Believin’ 

I have always loved Journey.  There, I said it.

And now, I have another reason to love the longtime band- their new lead singer- Arnel Pineda!

This guy is a rags-to-riches story. Journey found him on YouTube. Are you kidding me? Notice I linked his name… He has a page on Wikipedia now !!!!!!!  And he sounds just like Steve Perry… I love a good story!

Arnel, from the Philippines, grew up in poverty and basically sang for his supper, and now- 

Arnel has breathed new life into Journey, they just released a new album, and they have now performed on Oprah

Nice work, gentlemen!  You’re done- the best is yet to come!

My Antique iPod

This was my iPod until a few days ago.  I was one of the first people with an iPod.  I am normally not that trendsetting; my husband had heard about it at his high-tech workplace and got me one.

I remember, I kid you not, riding on Metro and people asking me what it was.  Then Oprah featured it on her ‘Favorite Things’… and Poof!  Magic!  You gotta love Oprah…

The same week Oprah declared the iPod one of her favorite things – 2 different people actually

stopped me on the street to confirm that what I had was ‘the iPod that was on Oprah’.

That was many years ago and believe it or not, my IPod worked until about a month ago.

My husband got one a few years ago that was super-snazzy compared to mine, and much sleeker.

But his died around the same time mine did… like a sweet, old, married couple, or something.

So my husband surprised me with a brand new iPod Nano for Valentines Day (the smaller version of the iPod which only holds about 2,000 songs).  I currently have 26 songs on my iPod so it’s plenty big.  I know, I’m adding songs.

And when he found out that a new battery for his would cost almost the same amount as a new iPod nano- he got himself one too.


Look at the difference in these iPods.

And the instructions are a few sentences long.  Pretty amazing, huh?

Reminds me of a trip to Best Buy last year to buy a new cordless home phone.  Woops, sorry, no home phones have cords anymore, unless you get a ‘retro’ one from Pottery Barn  Back to Best Buy: I was disappointed with the size of their phones- they were all so

small.  I wanted a bigger one so it wouldn’t get lost flushed misplaced.

It’s 2009.  What an incredible world we live in… now if I could just figure out how to sync-up the remote for the TV and the one for the DVD player; now that would be incredible.
