    Rant Warning!
    I do not like to post unpleasnt tidings but I must speak out! On Tuesday I had some scheduled blood work done. Later that day I received a call fron my primary care physician that my Creatin and BUN levels very very high I I should report to my neprologist or the ER. I did both. Iam told I have 5th or end stage renal disease. I have never had the failure of a complete organ system before and I do not yet know what this means. The kidney doctor who told me to go to the ER was going to visit the next day didn't show and the idiots at my nephrologist's office buggered up things so badly that they can't possibly see me for at least three weeks. Iam asymptomatic and feel fine except for whatever turmoil this news caused. Iam taking things philosophically but won't know what to do about things for three weeks. Susan, my wife is a basket case. A RN for 37 years she says she is despondent because there is nothing she can do. That is a troubling statement but Susan's state of mind is more so. Iam not looking for sympathy here. I'll figure things out and take appropriate action. My heath has always been bad, (I had over 500 hospital visits before I was 12). but I do know how to adapt to things.

    Thank you for your patience with this rant.I had to let you'all know or I would explode.


    Tommy,my thoughts and prayers are with you and Susan. I hope that you will receive better treatment in this coming week and that perhaps the long wait won't materialize as it now seems that it will. Big hug. Another big hug. And another. Linda

    Thank you so very much Tenor. This was the easiest by far of the three I did this week. Hit Or Miss https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQgBxikxSbc was loads of fun and frustration. I have to say I would choose it of the three for learning something new.

    I have done loop tracks in gb before but this one taught me so many things. First of all keeping time with a metronome is a skill! I ended up laying a separate metronome track against my vocal recording, and then had to split the metronome track and readjust it to the vocal track just slightly. I then used that metronome track as a reference to split the bass track and the tabla track to get them in sync with the vocal track. Loads of work but what a learning experiment it was for me!

    Reason To Believe was the first song I recorded before I got sidetracked trying to keep up with all of you who inspired me to push myself
    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

    I appeared in a summer stock show when I was 14. It was a positive experience for me, one I've never been able to recapture. I love the verses and the chorus, but I need to work on the bridge, so if you have any advice...

    We had a go at this one at rehearsals with the band, and I thought why not record a version for the seasons.
    This is a U2 song written by Bono and his mates, this is called If you wear that velvet dress.

    Okay, I managed to get a single song for this week. It's been crazy for me the past few weeks - I work at a campground during the summer, which is a fun job, but gives me a lot of strange hours! I had chosen songs to do for the past several Seasons, but every week, the time just got away from me.

    There's a little hiccup in the last verse, but I finally got this after several takes. Afterwards, I did more takes to try for a flawless rendition, which didn't happen, so I decided to stick with this one. So anyway, here is Joni Mitchell's song, Both Sides Now, from the year 1967.

    This is a song called "Something Following Me" from Procol Harum's first album, which came out in 1967.

    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!
