I'm really enjoying this Bluegrass Sessions concert I downloaded from GDLive a few weeks ago. It has Bela Fleck, Sam Bush and a bunch of other people on it.

My bro, who is back in Africa, keeps emailing me dispatches about his genealogical research. I'm starting to lose track...

Apparently we have a cousin in Australia who has been able to help him with one branch; I assume she is a cousin many times removed. I love Australia. We may visit there again next year. We may end up moving there someday. Tomorrow would be fine with me!
