    Is it true that they get you down to the harbour at St. Peter Port when the fog rolls in? I spent several hours on anchor watch on a Baltic Trader waiting for it to clear once.

    I live on a small island but, about 9 miles from my island, there is a 'very small' island called Sark.
    There are no cars, no tarmac roads, limited electricity, two pups & a few hotels, bicycles & horse carriage is the only transport.
    However it is one of the most beautiful places in the world & they hold two folk festivals every year.
    One is quite large, held over four days & quite expensive but the other one is a much smaller affair.
    In this great little vid you can get a bit of the atmosphere of the smaller festival (look out for one of my didges)

    How is that oven tuned?
    Is it a stone oven? What do you cook in there?

    Jim, I only work part time so I do have some time to play, never enough hours in a day though!
    It seems my photo bucket account has become corrupted so I cant get any pictures up at the moment.
    I intended to buy a pre cast dome but they are expensive and very difficult to get delivered so I built my own mould....

    Very cool, fox! The father of my daughter's best friend built an outside pizza oven similar to that one. Another friend of mine built his own tandoori oven.

    I like Philip Lipsky's ability to one-man play the didgeridoo, overtone flute, drum, foot rattles, and play the Irish Bouzouki simultaneously. Lot of us encouraged him to break out and sell some albums, which took about a year. Think he's gotten some notoriety and is playing in a new group now.



    Makes me wonder if I could even play the mandolin with the didgeridoo too.
