    I wrecked my knee a few days ago and I'm hobbling around badly. My plan was to spend the entire day along with performing with The CC Strummers at 3 pm, but I might only be able to do the performance. I'm seeing the orthopedist Tuesday, maybe get a cortisone shot or something. I especially don't want to miss Rutts.

    Sorry about your knee. Sounds like you & I don't have good timing for messing up our knees, but we are going to make the best of it. A day of ukulele will make us feel better.....emotionally, if not physically. Sorry to say, my cortisone injection last week didn't help much. Fingers crossed that I can make it from Salt Lake City to LA & back without too much trouble.

    I think I'm going to have to print a lot more lead sheets for our CC Strummers play-long.

    Good video, that was a great segment Mitch. Made me want to go and I’m already going. Oh course I also wanted to strum every uke on that display table.

    What a day yesterday! The 4th annual Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival is now officially on the books.

    Words cannot express how grateful I am to all the friends, helpers, volunteers, vendors, instructors, performers, former students, attendees, participants for all the positive energy and enthusiasm that sustained the day and made all the visitors feel welcomed.

    Believe me, I have already made copious notes on how to improve things for next year. Some ideas have taken 4 years to materialize, others are just things I wanted to try this year but may not have worked out quite as I'd hoped so they may need to be tweaked or 86'd altogether.

    Thanks again and see you next year!

    Thanks!!
