One of my jam recordings was featured at Sing Out today. 
We didn't realize it when we picked this week's tune, but old-time instrumentalist John Walkenbach has been tangentially featured in Folkfinds previously; he is among the old-time mentors Mexican banjo picker Juan Cordero found in the Tucson Old-Time Music Circle. 'Opera Reel,' our favorite from his Soundcloud page, does present a first of its own for us, though, being the first time we've shared old-time in its most beguiling state: that of the ...

Thanks, +Paul M .  No, when the Library became part of the Pima County Library, the terms of use changed to prohibit "outside groups" from using the meeting rooms after hours.  If I am ever able to start getting out again, I would like to check in with the city and see if any of the space in the new Community Center/Golf Courses/Fancy Restaurant is available for free.  _Yeah, good luck with that._

This isn't really surprising. I'm sure she's a good Christian, which is what counts.

Scary.

Yet, come November, it appears likely that one of our two major parties will ask Americans to imagine a President Trump or Cruz or Rubio. One can but hope that, in its collective good sense, the electorate will experience a massive failure of imagination.
This year it's different. Breathlessly, Republicans await the outcome of today's New Hampshire primary. In times past, New Hampshire was, variously, a check on Iowa, a force for moderation, a saf...

Single payer doesn't necessarily eliminate private insurance, and those mysterious 'men in the middle' bogeymen are not necessarily the big problem - the US medical care system itself is fragmented, poorly managed, not outcome-based in its investments and just inherently expensive. Single payer would help, but isn't a complete answer.

I dug deep and bought a KitchenAid microcomputer controlled toaster. It's been working well for many, many years and you can choose your toast level - and it'll toast every slice to that level every time.

Really; I can ask for #11 and feed a whole loaf through it 4 slices at a time. Every slice will be exactly #11. Worth every penny; I suffered with cheap toasters for too long.

In the early part of the last century, a company called Frostilla tried to convince women that men were turned off by smelly hands.

I'm surprised churches in the U.S. can't do this.
MOSCOW (AP) — A Russian regional court has ruled that an Orthodox Church diocese can repay part of an outstanding debt in prayers rather than money. In a ruling that went viral Thursday, the Nizhegorodsky Regional Court…

In 2007, Obama said, “The cynics, and the lobbyists, and the special interests [have] turned our government into a game only they can afford to play. … They think they own this government, but we’re here today to take it back.”

Yeah, right.
Today, just like in 2007, Obama spoke passionately about his desire to reduce the influence of big money in politics.

It is hard to write a weighty topic on a smart phone.

Granted, it is a Republic - supposed to be a representative one - and I've almost made the argument that it is supposed to be a representative one precisely because the founding fathers worried about the electorate making badly informed decisions and wanted to reserve the right to overrule the tyranny of the Democracy if they felt that was the case. The Electoral College is another manifestation of this principle in our Republic's framework.

The fact that people do not understand the intent or reason or even that this is the case, is a strong argument for why it was set up that way.

On the other hand - It is arguable that it makes a sham of our Democratic principles when it is exercised the way it was between Bernie and Clinton in New Hampshire. It looks like as much of a Star Chamber and Kangaroo Court as those of Old Europe that the founding fathers despised.

If the Democrat voters want to run a 78 year old far Left socialist, let them. If the Republicans want to run a d-bag Reality TV show windbag with too much makeup and a bad toupee who is a caricature of the WORST sort of American, let them.

Just in time for my birthday -- one week from today. Now, people will have nothing to fear when they sing that song for me.
Warner Music Group and others who fought to hold the copyright on "Happy Birthday to You" have given up their claims to the popular song, according to the terms of a proposed settlement deal that signals the end of a contentious three-year dispute.
