The door is open – come on in.

  Enter at your own risk…it’s kind of a mess here! The first picture is of me at my desk working on moving all our music from cds to the computer. We recently bought a Creative Zen 60 GB MP3 player as well as a 160 GB hard drive for backups. Our thinking is that all our music as well as our data will be on the new hard drive.

It hardly seems possible that we could be hoping for rain!...
