Beat 360° 4/19/10

Ready for today's Beat 360°? Everyday we post a picture you provide the caption and our staff will join in too. Tune in tonight at 10pm to see if you are our favorite! Here is the 'Beat 360°' pic:

A stranded airline passenger queues for information at El Prat international airport on April 18, 2010 in Barcelona, Spain. All flights in and out of Barcelona's El Prat and 16 other Spanish airports have been grounded due to a plume of volcanic ash drifting across Europe resulting from the eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland.

Have fun with it. We're looking forward to your captions! Make sure to include your name, city, state (or country) so we can post your comment.

    I don't ever want to hear a pitch for merchandise made from volcanic mud, volcanic ash, or the like . . . I'll keep an open mind when it comes to dead sea salt products.

    You buy a ticket via internet, get you boarding pass printed yourself, find your gate, which has changed in the meantime and you try to board the plane at the right time. That's the way to become a selfloading cargo
