WHAT WITH it being Earth Day and all that, I thought I'd post a pic of my 'washing machine' --

Who needs one of those big boxes that uses too much water and electricity? This requires nothing but 'lad power' and a tub of water to operate. A lot cheaper to buy too.

I've been using it about a year now and it does just fine. I think I actually get my laundry cleaner with it! Naturally, I use a 'solar' clothes dryer as well. Forget electric dryers; they're a waste of space and energy.

I gave myself some birthday presents yesterday. A big heavy-duty set of pruning shears -- spent the day lopping off branches and sprucing up the place. Also more block-out curtains to help quiet the house/studio a little more. Every bit of attenuation helps.

So, I should get onto recording, right? Well, after I pick up all the branches lying on the ground, perhaps I intention was to do a simple 'folk' album but the more time I spend on it, the more I feel like making it more polished and produced. After all, I'm not much of a player and that will show if I keep it simple! One way or another, I will have at least one song finished and posted online soon -- my song about the Florida Folk Festival. Want to have it out there before the festival occurs at the end of May.

And then, fifteen more...chose 'em all some time back, though there may end up being a change or two. Okay, back to work. More later!
