      1. LP: Numb; I do not know why but this song just touches me.
        Pink: A latest release it is. ‘Hurts to be Human.’ ‘Try’, ‘Just give me a reason’
        Need to hear the ones you mentioned. Today will surely Spotify these songs. πŸ™‚

      2. I was wondering why I couldn’t find it! You meant Linkin Park! And while I love that song too, I meant LP – Laura Pergolizzi. LOL Here’s the two different versions of Lost on You. Both are incredible!

    If you could travel anywhere and money were no object, where would you go and for how long? I would do a world tour visiting every continent and every country and getting at least one geocache in each country! I’d probably start at the bottom of the world and move north…

    What is your favorite ethnic food? Indian? Chinese? Thai? Venezuelan? Mexican? I can’t decide.
