It’s Christmas already

December 1st, 2008 by Vincent

Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon

“About five years ago someone from California sent me about 20 CDs with Blind Melon music. I had not listened to any of those until recently. When I ran across this CD I felt that I had found a treasure to be shared with all the people who love Shannon. After thinking about it for days, I have concluded that Shannon would have wanted me to give this as a Christmas present to you and you and you and you and you … so Merry Christmas!”

    Another way to find great prices is buying Hollister Clothing online from their site or an outlet. Some online prices can be up to 90% off. Buying online not only saves time but also saves money.
