The original wallpaper that came with Windows XP was inspired by Bill Gates’ childhood. He wanted something that reminded folks of laying back in a field and watching the clouds go by.


I totally get that. I’m kind of enjoying sitting in the Jeep and watching the clouds go by today during my lunch hour. I’m accompanying it all with one song on repeat. Naturally, it’s “Follow Your Bliss” by The B-52s. I’d share a video of the track with you, but the Verizon Wireless connection near work today is just awful.

But I’m not going to let that ruin my bliss.


    1. The Follow Your Bliss song fits quite well with the Windows XP wallpaper.

      Do you remember the Weather Channel playing “Follow Your Bliss” when they showed the forecast back in the 90s?

      1. I don’t remember watching The Weather Channel back in the day. Then again, I’ve never been one to watch it now either. I’m one of those “stick your head out the window and see” kind of weather guys.
