Oh that's awesome - thanks! Happy, healthy 2014 to you too! BTW if you are on FB, find me!

Demetrius said...

THANKS for this and all your writing over the years!

Curious if this is an actual playlist on your computer/devices.

Thank YOU for the comment Demetrius! The answer is sort of. This list is what was on my monthly playlists on iTunes. At the start of a month, I create a "January" etc playlist and add to it as the month progresses.
