Mastodon Joy

I wrote recently about how my “home instance” in the fediverse had apparently closed…remember? Well good news! Apparently the owner was out of town and not aware that his instance had gone down.

Sight-Reading Practice

I’m a pretty good sight-reader on the keyboard but have had to work on those skills on my ukuleles. Today is a beautiful day outside, and “the boys” are at their Promise Keepers conference, so I thought it would be a good time to make a video. What the heck, there are a lot of …
