A-Z #Gratitude: #Thanks for #Ukuleles

Thanks for the Ukulele and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

The ukulele well-played has commanding simplicity and passion.  I like Smells Like Teen Spirit, and this version.  The song is imbibed with Nirvana and Kurt Cobain’s raw energy; and the ukulele brings that out beautifully, while precise plucking of strings tenderly draws out the angst of – as it’s introduced in this video – “…a teenager in love”.

    I was invited to a multi-national potluck supper, and was brain dead with what to make.  When that happens, I usually fall back on Spanish Tortilla de Patates, but I had yellow turnips in my fridge – not potatoes.  I’ve…Read more ›
  • Leeks ‘N’ Lentils
      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›
