    It’s a lovely day. I had to run an errand so I thought I’d take a uke along. There’s a Woody Guthrie song I still hope to squeeze in, but if not, here’s one that we played at our jam Thursday (first time together indoors since March 2020!

    This song by The Go! Team was my favorite song of 2018, and since then I always watch the video on May Day. A link to the original is below.

    Belated happy May Day, comrades!

    Here's one from the I.W.W. Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent...

    Hijos del pueblo, te oprimen cadenas
    Y esa injusticia no puede seguir,
    Si tu existencia es un mundo de penas
    Antes que esclavo prefiere morir.
    Esos burguesas, asaz egoistas,
    Que asi desprecian la Humanidad,
    Seran barridos por los anarchistas
    Al fuerte grito de libertad.


    -Ralf Youtz

    My videos are here.

    The future is unwritten.

    Andy and Ryan, thank you for your encouragement!

    Er ....

    (Actually, this new fibre business is not without complications! There are two networks on the new box, but I can only access the 5G one at the moment ... which SHOULD make it possible to join in these riotous Saturday events! Unfortunately, though, it means that I can't access my Kindle Fire (on which I record my vids) as Kindles aren't up to 5G ... so there may be a bit of a delay before I can contribute to this week, Ryan! (I haven't yet discovered whether I can toggle between the slower network (2.4 Ghz) - which, at the moment I can't access - and the 5G network.)

    I have emailed Stephane, our local expert on all things Internet, to ask for his assistance and am waiting for him to get back to me (he tends to turn up unexpectedly when it is convenient for him.) Life is far too complicated!!!!
