    It was wonderful, I was most impressed by Steve Roy. Did you notice that snhug and Steve were the biggest, if not only standing ovations? Glad it is over, it made me very tired.

    When I opened the microwave this morning, I found a bowl of softened butter that I had put in there for the last pineapple sheet cake batter. Thought that last one baked up a bit differently... my apologies to anyone who got the butter-free pineapple cake - but then again, you're welcome for the calorie-savings!

    When I was leaving the hotel this morning I got into my truck and noticed someone had stolen My GPS, Yes I left a door unlocked on my truck. When I go home and took the trash to the recycling center someone was tossing out there Old Gps, So I got that one for free. Not as good as my other one but hey I really need one for my job. Just one more way I was blessed during this event.

    It was a fun time. I lost a music stand case, anybody see it at the end? I left early and could not find it.

    I had a great time, and I was amazed at the performers.

    we are veryfortunate to have so many people so close.

    I just joined SNHUG on MeetUp a couple of weeks ago and haven't been to a meeting yet. I bought two tickets to go to tonight's Luau...thought it would be a chance to get to know the group. My husband was going to attend with me, but came down with the flu, so now I have an extra ticket. I'm not sure if anyone is looking for a last minute extra ticket for a friend. If so, you are welcome to mine! Let me know!

      Hope your husband feels better soon, and hope you'll come jam with us every other Friday starting this week! All levels are welcome!

    We're in "Count Down" mode right now, the excitement begins! Be sure your name is on the door list, time is of the essence if you and/or your guests need tickets! There may be rooms left at the inn also. This is going to be Legendary!

    If you guys might still want to include "Take it Easy" in our jam sesh, here's a good representation of the chords. http://www.uke-chords.com/songs/take-it-easy

    The intro is just G, C, and D7.

    It doesn't have the chords that are played in the background when the banjo player does his thing at the end, but I can teach you those. It's super easy because it just goes back and forth between C and G. Hopefully Toby might want to solo for us!

    Here's the Eagles recording of the song which can be used for us to play along with for practice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzC7_im4_ac
