I just ordered a new case for my Ipod Nano from ifrogz thanks to the gift certificate from Boni & Travis. They are really pretty cool. You can custom configure the case and band to any color.

This is the 71st Annual Old Time Fiddler’s Convention, the oldest and largest mountain music convention in the world. Over 1100 campers will setup in Felts Park and contestants will come from all over the world to compete in Bluegrass Music,
