I love Pandora. For my money, it’s the best free online radio station you can find. Create an account, create a new station, recommend artists, give thumbs up and down, and it “learns” the style of music you like and recommends music based on your tastes. It’s a great way to hear your favorite classics and be exposed to new music. You can’t listen to select songs on demand like you can with some other online radio stations, but I love the wide variety of music and the new artists I get exposed to on a regular basis. I’m sure I never would have been exposed to some of them, were it not for Pandora. My current station is simply called David Gray – one of my all time favorites. The station on Pandora plays nothing but David Gray and similar artists; folk, acoustic rock, etc. I love it. Sign up for your free account at http://www.pandora.com/.
Herbal Coffee from Teeccino. A couple months back I realized I was drinking too much caffeine, so I cut back on my coffee. Well, I started back up after our daughter was born because she has been keeping us up at night. A couple weeks ago I wrote about how I was drinking coffee again and a reader mentioned an organic herbal coffee alternative made by Teeccino. The main ingredients are carob, barley, chicory root, and other flavorings. It’s not coffee, but it’s pretty good. The reader recommended cutting it half and half with regular coffee if I still wanted a little kick from the caffeine, but not the full dose. It sure beats cutting regular coffee with decaf! You should be able to find it at Whole Foods Stores, select health food and other grocery stores, or get a free sample from their website (requires signing up for a newsletter).
