I just spent the last five days leading up to July Fourth on our houseboat on Lake Oroville. A very nice place to be, but one of the best/worst (choose one) things about it is that I was without an Internet Connection for all that time. When I came back to Planet Dry Earth on July 5, I was pleased to see so many comments posted to the last blog entry.
Please understand that there are very few things that give me a warm and fuzzy feeling about the Internet. But this really did, so I'm really inspired now to keep it up.
Rosa, your suggestion for posting sound files is a great one. I'll see how easy this is to do. Not only is there the technical part (which I will be able to handle), but I need to see if it's possible to license actual song examples to use without getting into the murky field of copyright infringement. There's got to be a way to get around that, and if anybody knows an easy answer to this, please let me know.
Stand by for more specific responses to your questions.
