Christmas music

If there's anything that really annoys me about this season, it's how much deliberately Christless holiday music gets played. Even the local Billy Graham station falls prey to this malady. So for Pandora, Deo Gratias! I've created a station just for specifically Christian music celebrating the season -- here's a link.

Like all Pandora stations, it's a work in progress. But given how thin the reasons they give for playing the selections they do, I think that either they have a hard time wrapping their software around my nearly completely traditional tastes in Christmas music, or they aren't willing to fess up to their recognition of it.

Your comments at

were spot-on.

I do now plan to read your blog regularly. I hope you don't feel compelled to change the alternate title.

Merry Christmas

Thank you for your kind words. Every so often, I'm lucky enough that the Spirit wants to use me, and more so when I respond to that desire. I have no particular plan to change the blog's name, given how robust the response to my invitation for alternate names has been. /|;^)

But for you to read my blog regularly, I'd have to post regularly. I just don't see that happening.

By the way, your chow is a lovely fellow.

Good gravy! That is a shiba inu, man! Chow indeed! Harumphf!

All five of them wish you a Merry Christmas, in spite of this most egregious misidentification!

Duly noted on what it would take to be a regular reader. I guess I will be a regular checker.

For whatever reason, that post on can only be found at the Google archive or else by reading the page's source code. No clue why comments 60-70 were truncated.
