17: Don't Stop Streaming
I checked out Last.fm and was pleased to find they had golden oldies like the Carpenters, Olivia Newton John and Barry Manilow. You can stream the 1970s and 1980s just as easily as you can stream today's music. I stream baseball games, football games and radio stations. It is a convenient way to stay connected. It works best with high-speed Internet connections (duh!) otherwise you get frustrated by all the buffering. Another fun thing: if you miss a favorite TV program a lot of times you can find it on the Web, either at the network site or hulu. I caught up with "24" using this method. My church streams its 11 o'clock service (good if you are sick and can't go in person).
