Ooo, I Want! New Putumayo CD

I love Putumayo’s CDs, and we have at least ten or so. I’ve yet to hear one of their compilations that I didn’t enjoy.

Celtic Dreamland CDBut I really, really adore their Celtic collections, and I’m a big goofy nut about lullabies. I don’t know why—maybe it’s because nobody sang them to me—but I can’t get enough of them as an adult.Be warned: I do sing to babies. Anybody’s babies. I can’t resist snuggling a sleepy baby and lullabying away.

With that in mind, you can better understand why I just went nuts over the ecard with snippets of three songs from Celtic Dreamland that just arrived in my email. And ooo! There are more samples over here!

And hey, I like you people, so I’m sharing the joy with you.

Some of Today’s News in Atlanta

I managed to avoid the crime news, which is always horrific. Okay, I mostly avoided it. The three boys under 10 who are being charged with kidnapping and rape is getting to me. That poor little girl!

Transgender candidate misled voters, suit alleges

Actually, these guys seem to be suing everybody but the dogcatcher down there in Riverdale.

What does Ms. Bruce’s gender have to do with how she’ll perform as a city council member? Nothing, of course Ir’s been brought up because a couple of sore losers just won’t let go. Asshats!

Trumpet the news: Elephant is going to be a mom

But she won’t deliver until somewhere around April 1, 2009! 22 months of pregnancy. Dumbo never mentioned that little fact.

In metro Atlanta, profile of those in need during the holidays has changed

It isn’t just during the holidays, either. Food banks across the country are seeing more and more working people who need help. They’re having to reduce the amount of food given to each person or family because the demand has outpaced the supply so much.

I can’t say that I’m surprised. I know too many people who are just barely scraping by, and it isn’t because they’re irresponsible. It’s just how the American economy is, and something needs to change very quickly.
