Can't wait to start listening to Christmas music. I start in October at some point, gradually adding it in and I just realized we are only a month out from that month!

Yes, you can vote as much as you want.

If you haven't been over to the "Other Holidays" section of the forums, there's a great discussion thread about the late Thanksgiving this year, and how it may effect Christmas decorating.

Thanksgiving isn't until November 28th!

Hope you all have a good day planned!! I'm definately looking fwd to the long(er) weekend!!! I've got a little cooking to do tonight for the weekend, & hoping to have time to run some of our things out to the lake tonight so tomorrow after work all that stuff is already there & I can just head to the lake!!! YAY!!! Several of our lake neighbors are coming up already tonight! Getting a head start on the weekend. Lucky ducks!!

Enjoy your day!
ahh fog days! LOL, around here when that happens the buses are just cancelled for the day.
I am looking forward to enjoying our weekend at camp! We were already there this morning and set up all our tents. So looking forward to this weekend. Enjoy yours too!

Remember "Jingle Bells" with the barking dogs? They're along those lines, only with cats. They're cute, but I wouldn't listen to them all day! They're still available on Amazon as MP3 downloads.

And---oh, no! I just discovered there was a third album, "Rhythm and Mews," of non-Christmas music. "Dueling Banjos" in meows? Really? I gotta hear the samples when I get home ...

Therefore, we are struggling financially, and are having a tough time spending extra money on marketing my business, when there's nothing coming in. Add that to the fact that I haven't worked for 9 months.. there are monthly & annual fees that are very high. I based my love for real estate on my experiences buying & selling, and didn't know the other side of things. I researched it, but there are laws about not discussing $, so I could only find out so much. I don't know that we can afford the fees while building my business. After I went to work for my broker, I was told that many agents are in the -$ for many years. It doesn't help that I don't know a lot of people here, much of the business is based on referrals. I am looking for supplemental income of my own right now. Prayers would be appreciated!! =]
Seems as though the devil is always in the details, and there's always something "they" didn't tell you. It will be a tough decision whether to stick with it or find something else. I'll say a little prayer for you.

I think you can "nominate" as many songs as you like. As I understand it, the top 100 are the recordings with the most votes throughout the year. They get played in a countdown on Merry Christmas Radio, hosted by Jeff, RadioJonD, and JayIsh.

I've been throwing some Christmas music into my listening, but I don't go all-out Christmas until after Halloween---it gives me something to look forward to!
