This morning Sunshine challenged me with a tag of 8's. Not the Sunshine that emanates from the hot ball of fire around which the Earth revolves at 66,000 miles per hour but the blogger Sunshine with random thoughts. She told me it would be hard and I cannot resist a challenge. She was right. It was hard!It really made me think. When I finished I saw no point in not posting it. So here it is:
8 TV shows I like to watch:
I don't watch a single TV show but I know about them as I read about them. I watch only music channels. So I am listing the ones I regularly watch. For added information I am also listing one song that each one regularly plays these days :-) I am sure this more than makes up for the TV shows.
1.VH1: The song I like is 'We are golden' which is climbing the charts these days
