Iceland Photo Giveaway

Tjorn_1 You would think that I would have thought of posting this link, but I didn't. Thanks Ms. K for the gentle reminder.

In her wonderful Sigh Club blog, Ms. K is offering an Iceland Photo Giveaway. All you have to do is visit this link, tell her what your favorite blogs are, and you'll have a chance to win a lovely photo of Iceland. And believe me, the prints come out beautiful. So, please visit her blog and tell her that "Joe says hello!" Okay, you don't even have to tell her that.

I found out recently that a friend of ours is going to Iceland in April. You can only imagine how jealous I am. But, though the jealousy is coursing through my veins, I will ask--if anyone has any good ideas for things that are going on in Icleand in April, please let me know. Feel free to use the under-utilized comment section.

Music Anyone?

As our Iceland trip becomes more and more a thing of the past, it seems to be harder for me to keep up on new Icelandic music. Anyone have any recommendations on great new CDs from Icelandic bands? or, even better, great new Icelandic bands that have CDs out?

I'd appreciate your advice in the comment section below, or send me an email if you'd like to be all friendly and stuff.
