    no twisting... ie. the dance, unless you must...i hear it's a great cardio workout..and good for lower back pains... no twister, well maybe, that's an idea.....no twizzler's, no naughtiness...well, maybe a little..he he!
    hopefully you'll find this 'twist' challenging...maybe annoying...i'm just glad i won't have to participate! i'd fail!
    and we have guest judge's as well! a progressive folk /psycho-billy/ band that is touring the country but based from my little town of eureka springs, mountain sprout!
    i'll post links to their site and some of their songs.
    more tomorrow!!! let's have fun! let's uke!
    just uping the ante...making us all better players...pushing us forward....like this whole seasons have done!
    i hope you all will embrace it and rise as you have all done so far!
    and there will be prizes!
