"Pack Up and Let's Fly Away!"

I’ll admit it. I’m addicted to travel magazines. I await their monthly arrival and each month pretty much doing the same. I flip through the pages go “oh that’s nice” and toss it away.

Episode 44:Real House Music… Chicago Style

One hour of  soul  quenching beats. Hell yeah! I mean how could you not have a joyous day with a harmonious start like this?!  When the music builds and “I’m addicted to drums and I’m a slave to the dark beat” blares I mean really,  how does it get any better than this?
