Man, I had forgotten how good Pete Seeger is. One thing I never knew though, was he had his own TV show. Luckily youtube has our back: The Weavers (he was a member) Mississippi John Hurt: part 1, part 2, and himself with Johnny and June Carter Cash. (For a little variety Pete on the Johnny Cash show.) more inside

The Paul Daniels' eBay Transactions Blog. I'm sure many of us recall magician Paul Daniels' heyday in the 1980s with his lovely assistant Debbie. (He has his own blog, btw.) Someone discovered his eBay username and is blogging everything Paul buys and sells, including complex commentary on the bidding process. Another example of having too much time on your hands.

Boonville California is a small town in the Coast Range Mountains between the Sonoma Valley wine country and the Mendocinoo Coast. It's a scenic area and largely agricultural, but it's most widely know for Boontling, a folk language created there in the 1800s. With a vocabulary, of over a 1000 words, it was remarkable to hear. But, sadly, it's on the brink of pikin' to the dusties.
The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon You may have heard about Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon before. In fact, you probably learned about it for the first time very recently. If not, then you just might hear about it again very soon. But, there is Littlewood's law, which states that we each can expect a miracle to happen to us at the rate of about once a month. It appears our grip on reality is slim. more inside

This is Haywards Heath "The average sized town between London and Brighton on the A272". So much to see and do, fine cuisine, great shopping and friendly pubs. Sadly love connections can no longer be made.
