    The Miata burned to the ground to less than 7 inches tall (don't even ask about the LoPrinzi!) so there was nothing left, just ashes, a piece of transaxle and metal puddles where the wheels melted....

    Ah, but only one of them is the "ukulele" print, Bill. But, still, how many other places even have *one* ukulele print for bathing trunks??? :D

    Okay, I’m just back from a visit to Hawai’i Island (more in a bit about great ukulele thing that happened to me there) but unpacking I realized hubby needed new bathing trunks. I went online to...

    Yep, it takes a little bit of time (about 45 minutes, non rush hour, as I recall) but is quite easy from the Waikiki area. Be aware, though, that at the museum end, you must walk through a...

    Yep, definitely get the notation down, fretie, but, even more importantly for the LUE stuff is to *memorize* that fretboard. Knowing the notation is needed, but you really need to get the fifth,...
