Apart from my on-going posts relating to life-as-a-stay-at-home Dad, one thing I rarely post are Public Service Announcements.
Hovwever, if you use PANDORA while you write/edit,, let me ask... have you heard about SPOTIFY?

Now, I have no financial (or other) dog in this race - and this PSA is just my humble opinion, but if you like Pandora, you'll *love* Spotify... :)
I only found out about Spotify last month while I was travelling to see my old man. I assumed Pandora had a box in Holland, but I was mistaken.
I shared this with Peter, an old, bald buddy of mine, and he was like, "Ja hoor, just do Spotify, man."
|My old mate, Peter from Edam, home of the cheese:)|
"Do Spotify?," I said, over breakfast in downtown Edam (with nary a clog, tulip or windmill in sight.) "It sounds contagious... What's a Spotify?"
He explained and I downloaded the app for Android in about five minutes. For the next ten days, I had music on my smartphone (and laptop) the entire time.
Wikipedia has a lot of technical information here, but here are some, for me, positive differences between Pandora and Spotify.

>>> You can *rewind* a song (love that!)
>>> It's free for basic service, (which isn't "basic," it's awesome.)
<<< You can go into your " radio stations" and choose specific tracks, not just wait in hope...
>>> The ads on Spotify seem shorter and less obtrusive.
<<< Spotify sets itself up at the bottom of your screen, and just waits to be clicked on (no more pressing the x close button by mistake :)
Anyway, just wanted to share the info and let you know there is another option to Pandora - if you're interested!
Have a great, music-filled weekend, y'all ;)
