Are you stuck in a truck without a CD player or without an auxilary input for your MP3 player. Now you have a solution. I found this over at ThinkGeek.com

Will the cassette tape ever die?

In between the beloved LP record and the now familiar CD, there was another music media format - the cassette tape. It was very popular during the 80's and one thing that definitely made it standout was that, unlike a LP, you could easily record onto a cassette tape. Before that your recording options were primarily limited to reel-to-reel tape machines, which were usually pretty large and sometimes not so friendly. Being able to record onto cassette tape also lead to the ever popular "mix tape" - which was usually a collection of kick ass songs you'd give to your wannabe girlfriend or someone else you were trying to impress.


This MP3 player is built into a standard cassette tape, letting you use it as either a
uniquely old-school-style MP3 player, or with any car cassette or cassette player to play your music. You will have no problems listening to hours of your favorite songs via the built-in SD card slot, and you can easily change to different songs if you have multiple SD Cards. If you are into retro style looks but with a new technology upgrade, this is a MP3 player worth adding to your gear.

Nice blog, I saved it to my bookmarks... You're right, that DOW chemical plant in freeport is HUUUUGE! When I entered, it's almost as if they have their own highway system. I stayed far away from the actual plant because my trailer was in the drop yard but I still had to drive quite a ways from the guard shack and scales near the entrance. I would love to go explore places like that. Theres some paper factories in Washington and Oregon that are equal to that size and they want you to maneuver a truck and trailer through the streets... tons of fun!

The DOW plant does have it's own highway system. They have work trucks that have special license plates and the trucks never leave the plant. The place is unbelievable big.

I just noticed something. Does then second picture look a man's hand but with a bunch of bracelets on? I know that some guys do wear bracelets but those don't look like what you would normally see a guy wear.
