Christmas Candles15Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004), better known by his shortened stage name Ray Charles, was an American musician. Ray was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm & blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records.[1][2][3] He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums.[4][5][6] While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.

    I just got outdone by a 6 year old. Just finished answering the door. It was the Postman delivering a box. I look at the company name, and I am like …..I did not order from them. I look up myself on that site, and there is the order. Yeah, you guessed it…….Peanut put in the order……I didn’t even think she knew how. No more storing CCArds for future orders on sites..
    What did she order? Three different science kits for kids.
