Wednesday’s Dose of Sunshine: Organizing a Playlist That Will Put a Smile on Your Face

Planes, trains and automobiles – a lot of us will be hitting the road today – 38 million or so according to AAA.

If you’ve got a few minutes before you go, add a little dose of sunshine into your trip by creating a Thanksgiving playlist for your MP3 player. Try to pick songs that will have you humming along and smiling as you battle the crowds going from point A to point B.
