    Be careful of Banfield Animal Clinics

    All, I know this is overall a uke forum, but, many uke lovers are also animal lovers, so, I need to share an experience I just had locally with a veterinary clinic that is apparently a national chain. This past Sunday I took my cat in for an emergency visit to a Banfield Animal Hospital...

    Nickelodeon movie to feature a uke?

    So, while my roommate was watching *shudder* Spongebob on Nick, I saw a commercial about some new movie that they are premiering tomorrow.

    Washington DC or Baltimore?

    Hi all, I just moved pretty much squarely halfway between Baltimore and Washington DC. I'm just curious if there are any groups around here who get together and play. I know a few weekends ago when I went to a music shop in Cantonsville there was a group that was either in a lesson or just...

    Dying for a uke fix

    So, I ordered my uke from Hawaii Music Supply a little over a week ago and it is still in the queue waiting to be processed. I'm TOTALLY ok with the wait, I'm just SUPER impatient and I know it'll take a bit on shipping too once they get my Makala set up all nice and pretty like, so, in the mean...

    Missing my Hawaii home...

    Hi all. I'm a novice guitar player and Pacific Islander by blood. I lived on Oahu for the past couple of years but recently moved to Japan and now I'm dreadfully missing the sun, surf, and poke. I always loved the sound of a uke and while I was in Hawaii I fell even more in love with it. One...
