Anyone who works from home will appreciate the pros and cons that come along with it. Working in cozy slippers and a commute consisting of about 10 stairs - definitely cool. Juggling time between kids on Christmas break and a busy work load - a bit harder.

We've been working on our new website, pricing and logo (stay tuned!) under the most hilarious conditions. I am sure most office workers don't get interrupted by co-workers every 12 minutes asking for snacks, complaining that their toy eyeball has dust on it or surprising them with the sounds of the annoying Crazy Frog game (thanks for that Nikki...) Check out http://www.crazyfroghits.com/crazy.html and imagine trying to compose an email with that in the background....

Fortunately Chris has taken a break to hang out with them outside so I can catch up on an overflowing desk.

With a New Year's resolution to post more, I wanted to share one of my favourite websites in the world- www.pandora.com. Our friend Neil Thornton got me totally hooked on it. It's a free site that uses cool technology to create customized stations for you. You just tell it the name of a few songs or artists that you like. As the site says "It will quickly scan its entire world of analyzed music, almost a century of popular recordings - new and old, well known and completely obscure - to find songs with interesting musical similarities to your choice. Then sit back and enjoy as it creates a listening experience full of current and soon-to-be favorite songs for you. You can create as many "stations" as you want. And you can even refine them. If it's not quite right you can tell it more and it will get better for you." Hope you love it as much as I do. Back to work!
