Interests:
[Jamming] [Socializing] [Helping]

Occupation: Web Developer

Age: 60

My Instruments:
My main fiddle is a hard used but wonderfully sounding D. Salzard that's about 130 years old, with a one piece back to die for, and appears handmade. My second fiddle is a very early Suzuki Nippon that looks like it was repaired by a backyard body mechanic with Bondo and epoxy, but manages to sing quite nicely. And I have an early 20th c. German Strad which is plain-plain-plain until you put the bow to her, when she turns into Cinderella at the Ball, with Dark Rich Tone. And I've got a 4th fiddle that's a german trade fiddle, a project I am currently working on, and a 5th that's a german trade, probably a Mittenwald, that needs work that I picked up recently at the flea market. I've also got a couple basket cases that came in recently. One's repairable, an amateur made fiddle from New York, but it needs the whole pegbox/scroll grafted. The other is for parts.

Watching the Weather Reports

Tuesday, September 09, 2008 @8:02:55 AM

I'm registered for this weekend's Greenwood Furnace Folk Gathering and have been looking forward to it for awhile. Well, I just checked the weather for the weekend and right now they're predicting 50% chance of rain ** all three days. ** This is a camping event.

Hopefully that forecast will change. But if it doesn't, the decision becomes do I wanna risk having my arthritis flare up while camping in the damp (pretty much inevitable if it rains to any degree) after driving 120 miles to get there or just bag it, and lose the 60 bucks registration fee. There is a local event on Sunday I can attend as an alternative, and the weather report for here in the Easton area, though there is a possibility of a passing shower, it doesn't seem like it's anywhere near as inevitable.

Maybe it's time to sacrifice another weatherman to appease the gods.
