Learning How To Drive My Blog-Auto

Okay, it's one thing to be able to write and put up a picture...but trying to add a youtube to post has been a severe challenge for this oh-so-last-century gal! Just copy here and paste there...well, it wasn't working. Picture my ankles being gnawed-upon by the trolls I know live in cyber-space. They seem to have an APB out whenever I'm trying to drive my little cyber-car across a new bridge. By this morning I was ready to drive the reeblefrazzinrattafrat computer right off the Home Bridge and watch Blogdom go blub-blub!

Okay, time to make a cuppa, breathe deep and have a little Jack Handy talk into the I'm a good person and...darn it...people like yooztoobies. Steeling myself with good intent, I had another look and thought...hmmm, what if I change gears between the two options for the post....

It was as if I spoke the word, "Friend," at the doorway to the Mines of Moria when I hit the little preview button! To celebrate, I'm going to share one of my favourite musical youtubes, featuring a nice young man from Tacoma, Mark O' Connor, on the fiddle. Did you know that he used to take guitar lessons from Dudley Hill, of Pearl Django fame? Dudley is jammin' with the rest of the Great Band in the Great Beyond now, bless him and his family. The South Sound can be very proud of its musical heritage.

Here's Bobby McFerrin (wrongly named Bobby McPerlin) Yo Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, and Mark O'Connor, with a version of "Hush Little Baby," guaranteed to make you smile and sway. Maybe someday, I'll even learn how to make a video...and turn it into a youtube...and post it. Ooh-la...I hate the sound of trolls laughing and drooling. Let's listen to some music, shall we? I'll drive.
