    Season 124 - Ready...Set...Write!

    Okay - it's songwriting week. Something I've thought for a while now would be a cool theme. I've been away for a while so I'm not sure if it's been done. If so, we're doing it again. First - basic rules apply. Ukulele front and center, don't post until Sunday, you've got until midnight...
