YuleTube: Ray sings Rudolph

Our Putumayo holiday CDs are great, because they have music from all over the world and/or versions of holiday songs that are totally different and fun. Such as this bluesy rendition of "Rudolph" by Ray Charles. I'll keep looking for more Putumayo songs on YouTube, but let's start here. Enjoy!

i'll have a cup of tea, and tell you of my dreaming

I usually have such nights full of dreams, but I'm bad about writing them down in the bedside "Dream Book". Today, however, I was better:

- I'm on a big cruise ship like boat, and there's a giant sinkhole in the water. The boat is trying to get away from the sinkhole. During all this, the person next to me is making moves on me using a dramatic modern-dance style of physical action.

- I'm getting organized while at a passport-type counter, and dealing with my laptop. There are lots of people, and I'm trying to keep my laptop from being stepped on. Finally, I'm in line behind a person with a 3-tier, 4-seat-per-tier mega-baby-stroller.

Haven't had a flying dream in a while, though. Bummer. I like the flying dreams.

Anyone else have some good dreams?
