We lived in England for a time. My dad totally busted my chops about how nasty scones are. How they were actually pronounced "stones" until someone got cute. He's wrong. The scones I am in love with, thanks to a certain Davis family, are wonderful, light and fluffy.

7. According to my Pandora Shuffle, I like Jadon Lavik and Josh Radin and Ray LaMontagne and Downhere and Brett Dennen and Jack Johnson(always). I'm not big on music, I never know who the it person is in music land. I listen to sermons and talk radio and
