I teach technology for the children. I read poetry for the soul. I play banjo for the fun.

I've taken lessons from Patrick in the past.  I found him because I was searching for someone who could teach me slide techniques and blues riffs for the banjo.  I am excited for Patrick to get his Blues Project off the ground for a completely selfish reason.  I want that instructional DVD!

Patrick's youtube videos taught me how to play clawhammer style. Successfully. Because of those videos, I contacted him and took a few online lessons.  His help and advice helped me improve as a player. I'd pay $50 to get the instructional materials he is putting together for this project so am happy to contribute. Can you spare a few bucks help a banjo player out?

Saw this young singer-songwriter last year. She and Danny Schmidt are worth going to see if they travel through your town.

This is so cool!
Laying eggs on a cliff?
Don't make them round. A seabird called the Common Murre, known in Britain as the Guillemot, has evolved conical eggs that are unlikely to roll off the bare seacliff ledges where they are laid.

Gives me some ideas for summer reading....and re-reading.

I'm thinking of starting a "Fringe Day" at work where we take on the different personalities of our various counterparts from different dimensions. Subtle and not so subtle changes in how we act and behave based on events or lack of events from our multiple selves. One day I might be "Gimpy Al" from the universe where my dog Angel went demonic when I was 10 and bit off my toe. Gimpy Al has a chip on his shoulder, walks with a cane and calls everyone who doesn't agree with him "snooty". He isn't much fun to be around but surprisingly has good taste in shoes.
