A Monster on my Footsteps

Irene is about 175 miles away from Orlando right now but we are having squally blustery winds and weather from the storm. They, the weathermen said we weren't supposed to get any but there it is pouring rain overflowing the drain pipes and a howling winds lashing the trees back and forth. I just won't be comfortable until that pitbull of a storm moves away into open waters. Don't want to send it to South Carolina either where my friends are either. I don't want it to go to New York even less where my daughter and granddaughters are at. Please Lord just don't let it hit land. Of course Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven. If at all possible keep the bad weather off shore and away from us! Amen.

Hope this is the worse of it. Hurricane weather just brings bad memories of the time several years ago, 2004, to be precise when a caravan of hurricanes barged through Florida. Never again please.

Tune in Radio

Recently, I was trying to find a radio station where I could listen to live radio coverage of the passing of then Tropical Storm Irene over Puerto Rico, when I remembered that Radio Rock a Christian Radio Station in San Juan recommended a Tune in Radio app for Smart phones and the internet. This is how it works: you go to the website, you download the free app to your phone and then you can choose to listen to a live streaming of radio station some where in the world. The app arranges the radio stations by continents. After you choose a continent, it allows you to choose a region, and then a specific country. So for Puerto Rico, I had to choose North America, then the Caribbean Islands, then I chose Puerto Rico from among at least 20 other islands or nations. Once in Puerto Rico I had over 20 radio stations that I could choose from including Wapa Radio, Noti Uno, Radio Rock, Radio Redentor, and Sal Soul. Let's say I get homesick and want to listen to music from home, where ever home may be this is all I have to do. Good Lord I guess if I knew Arabic I could listen to a station in Iraq, or if I knew French I could feasibly listen to what is happening in Paris. Knowing English, I could pick up stations in Australia or New Zealand.

I think it is fantastic. Something like a short wave radio without the scratchy sound or having to buy a radio. I think it is really neat. Thought everybody would like to know.
