Ouch! I might substitute White Castle for McDonalds - although I haven't eaten at either in decades. But, hard to argue with the rest of it.

I recently acquired a Ohana Tiple. Ten steel strings in four courses.I have it tuned in standard Ukulele tuning. A Tiple makes a lovely jingle jangle kind of sound. Having lots of fun with it.
Here is the wonderful Ed Askew playing Morning Light on a Martin Tiple.

This little Junco and family have been spending a lot of time at our feeders. The Holly bush was crushed by the weight of snow that we received on Sunday. One lone branch is still upright. He likes to rest there when he isn't searching for the best that the feeder offers.

This song was in the soundtrack of a movie I saw this week end. I had never heard it before ( I don't get out much :-) )  I've played it over and over.

Robert Frost On Life

Frost always had a way of compiling multiple thoughts into a succinct thought. It was a gift he had. Some may say he was simplistic, some, overly simplistic, but I always felt that he had a way with the simple truths.

Goodnight, all, and I hope you dream the dreams of Kings tonight!

And then there is this. I've had to listen to a few of these negative comments when plant based diets are discussed. Not sure why people feel so threatened. 
A Merry Monday to all

Being challenged that your possibly operating on ethically shaky grounds, can be a bit jarring for some folks!

I'll admit it. I've always loved the Hurdy Gurdy. This performance gets a little wild when the sampling kicks in. Enjoyed every minute of it.
Thanks to +Paul Gottesburen

This sounds like Bear McCreary met up with an early 90s industrial band. That is a good thing, and hard to believe this is all possible with one instrument.

At some point, I have to understand that I'm not going to be able to play all the instruments, or speak all the languages, or do all the math and science, and just enjoy performances like this.
On a list of things I most anticipated sitting down to cover on Colossal today, the hurdy gurdy probably wasn't in the top thousand topics, but then I stumbled onto this video and had to share it. The piece is called Omen, written and performed by Guilhem Desq, who uses an electrified version
