What a pleasure to rise this morning blinded by  fluffy snow outside my window!  (Even more a pleasure when a broom was all I needed to clear my stairs and car!)  It’s no blizzard, but it will do!  In reverence to the pleasant winter precipitation,  I found some snowy numbers for you today.

A sparrow in the studio! In an attempt to let some of the heat escape from the sauna, I mean station, a door was propped. Apparently a little sparrow friend thought it a fine idea to hop on in.  Quite a surprise  when it came hopping into the booth with me!  After trying to gain some trust, I introduced an exit strategy of a cracked door, and he re-entered the winter wonderland!  Fun for creatures great and small!

  1. While I’m well aware that’s it’s completely juvenile, I’m still cracking up that you managed to find more than one song with “taint” in the title.

    Also, according to the Ken Burns doc, it’s Bix BY-der-beck.

  2. Scratchy Vinyl says:

    Oh there are more than two! I almost played ’tain’t nobody’s business… but I thought it might be overdoing it. I can only imagine there are more! ‘Tain’t is a fun word, it is not. Taint: to infect, contaminate, corrupt, or spoil (among other things). The correlation between an absurd contraction and the word itself makes me smile.

    And yes, I generally can pronounce Bix’s name properly, I had misspelled it however, so technically I was still correct. Thanks to the caller who helped me sort out my moment of confusion!
