Back in business! aka Every Light in the House

Whew! It was touch and go there for a few days. In one of the stupidest things I've done in recent memory, I caused the links to my blog to disappear; then earlier today, the blog itself vaporized. But we're back in business now.

If you haven't been able to land here this week, not to worry - you still have time to enter the Big 7MSN Giveaway. Click here for details.

Stressing about the missing blog has left me unprepared to post any new stories or pictures of the herd, so I'm just going to play along with the iPod virus that's been spreading. I caught it from one of my favorite wranglers, Karen, at Life at the Rough String. Here's the deal:

1. Put Your iTunes on Shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. Write down the name of the song no matter how silly it sounds!
4. Put any comments in brackets after the song name.
5. Tag at least 10 friends.
6. Anyone tagged has to do the same, because fun pointlessness spreads like a virus.

Consider yourself tagged if you want to play along.

As long as we're on the subject of iPods, did you know it is possible to cause grievous harm to yourself with one? Click here for the scoop.


  1. LOL. Love the answers...very uncanny. I'll play along. Carolynn & Cow's Fabulous Adventure is sadly drawing to a close, so will likely get to this next week.

    I thought something odd was going on over here at the Ranch...glad to hear you got everything sorted out.

  2. This was a fun post! Now if I only had an I-Pod I could do it too!
    Happy Thanksgiving!!

  3. Thank goodness! I was wondering what the heck was going on.
    On my blogroll I'd see a new post at the 7MSN but when I tried to come read it you weren't there! :(

    As for the contest, I'm at work (boo - technically I'm done so I'm not sure why I'm here!) To be exact I'm in the office which is just off the bar so I am reading blogs and listening to the karaoke from the bar (yeah, I *know* you're jealous!! lol)
    I am wearing brand new grey dress pants and an apple green sweater.

  4. Seems as if you got some very fitting answers to your questions, lol. As for the i-pod incident, i suggest a silicon cover for it. It will solve the problem, and we won't have to worry about whether you are dead on your mud room floor as we eat our turkey today.

  5. iPod?! Who can afford one these days? LOL I can barely afford to keep my heat on! Can't wait for Christmas so I'll have money from mom for the new digital tv I need. My other tv died last month. I've resorted to or other sites for tv shows and music.
    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  6. I did wonder where you had gone when I kept getting an error page for your blog! Glad you are back :)
