Mighty Uke Movie

What a delight!!! Those who know me know that I LOVE my ukuleles. A lifelong pianist & keyboardist (BA in music) I now play my ukes more than my keyboards. ANYWAY today I singed up for a 14 day trial of MagellanTV because I’m a documentary junkie, and there was a movie called Mighty Uke …

STELLAR!

One of the good brothers in There’s Life posts songs for Earworm Wednesday in his blog. I always give a listen, he has posted some interesting music there. But today’s song just blew me away. BLEW ME AWAY! As a huge fan of a cappella music, and tight harmonies, and male quartets, this made my …

Bye Bye Blues

Backyard Critters

This is a video I made of a few of the visitors to our feeder and the surrounding area. I made it for a friend, with the intention of sharing it here when eventually – which is now :). I hope you enjoy seeing the critters that share our space! These were taken from inside …

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 …
