Welcome to The Ark



Welcome to the 4th annual "The Ark Music Festival"

This is something that we've done every year for the past 4 years. Find your favorite tunes and post a YouTube, talk about your favorite bands or songs, post an inspirational lyric, or just hang out, listen to the tunes and chat.

It's always good clean fun.

For those who don't know how, or have been having issues posting videos, I've updated the help files. Just click here and read post number 6.

Here is a link to the previous blog.

Rob: you were busy while I went back to snooze. Haven't listened to "Hats Off" for some years and I never knew exactly what he was sayin' - still don't even with the lyrics but can't that feller pick?
Nice fish! That can't be Pottery holding it though.

It is indeed!
That's how I look, sometimes...

Some days are Stone….

Today was Diamonds !

Okay, man. Gotcha covered!

The Same Old Rock



And the lyrics

All along the ancient wastes the thin reflections spin
That gather all the times and tides at once we love within
That build the edges round the shrouds that cloud the setting sun
And carry us to other days and other days to one
And full the single stillness of the mirror that is made
By each and every one of all the colours in a shade
Inside each eye is sitting like the sword inside the blade
And longs for once upon a chance to open love's cascade
For here we stand – hand to hand
Fighting for the Promised Land

And you try to tell me with consternation
That you have found me a brand new lock
Then you try to warn me that there's only one combination
One new sling – the same old rock

There is a famous straggler stood on the edge of time
Who held the staff but did not feel the pain
He multiplied the mystery with utterance sublime
And crossed his heart for those who died insane

His friend a restless mouthpiece 7000 years of age
Trends to flash a face to shape his ways
Everlasting light is burning bright inside his cage
He's only got to breathe to fan the blaze

Such a groove to have him here on-board Her Ladyship
The man who makes his living out of bed
Such a gas to see him flying through his ceaseless lip
One day, someday soon, he'll lose his head
And withering in the galleries with eyes fixed on the door
Are who and you and me and thanks a lot
And those who see but cannot stand to walk on any floor
For fear that good is something bad is not

But loud and clear is the call
In black and white across your wall
Damn it all, man, can't you see

And you try to tell me with consternation
That you have found me a brand new lock
Then you try to warn me that there's only one combination
One new sling – the same old rock


And his web site with a pretty good bio.
Now...hows that for service!
:o)

The one I was looking for goes something like this (Thumps forehead repeatedly):
Pause.
Sheesh! now raining seriously here and I'm distracted with thoughts of my latest unfinished complex roof absorbing water as we speak.
Roy Harper:
"Loud and clear is the call
In black and white upon your wall
And Dammit all, Man
Can't you see?"
I have no idea what the title is but one can not go wrong listening to this guy. As Led Zeppelin recorded:
"Hats Off to Roy Harper"!

Morning Rob:
I read the "How To" and found a musician but saw no need to embed because all I got was adverts on my search. Here's the fellow I was thinking of from Wiki:

Good Morning, and thanks!
A 10 minute version of Little Wing is just what I need to go with my coffee today!

Oss,
I knew a girl in high school that could get dressed, do her hair, and make up, while driving to school. (don't try this at home kids) Speaking of can't drive 55. Getting off 417 onto I4 then 27 was rough. Lucky I didn't get busted.
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 101 Comments: 33363
I will leave you with this. Gnight and be well all!

Edit: better version....



Since some of us are bachelors for a bit )me included(, I found this appropriate :P

No, I shouldn't......but

At least she was not driving this time Rob :)

I'm going to take advantage of the fact that I can watch whatever I want on TV tonight. I know, 500 channels, Vid on Demand...probably still nothing I want to see, but I do have a lot of stuff on the DVR.

Then maybe I'll actually go to bed at a reasonable hour.

So, with that in mind,

some ni-night music.
Take your pick!







Good night and rest well my friends.

Oh, almost forgot.

Still feel kinda bad for those guys, but they kept eating the other passengers.

LOL my Friend!
Some good Music there, thanks.
And I agree about the 'leaving on the jet plane'. Not one I sing along to!
Anyway, have a good time !

There!
I lamented mournfully!

Now...the sun is setting. My favorite time of the day.
Then I need to feed the pets.

Back later.

Okay, so...
This morning, we get in the car and pull out of here at 10:25. Figured 10:30 would be plenty early even if traffic was jammed up on I-4. But I told her 10 because I always add a half hour just to make sure we get out the door on time. Well, we did...barely. 1st order of business was to fill the gas tank. Well, naturally gas went up this week. I stopped at $40.00 because I figured it was plenty and watching all those $$$ spin by was beginning to damage my calm.

Got in the car. Didn't even get out of the lot before she whips out a bottle of polish and begins painting her toes.
What?

You can't do that!

Of course I can, I'm a professional!

Yeah, and if I hit the brakes your gonna paint a professional stripe all the way to your ankle.

Then drive smoothly!

Okay...I just shut up and watched the road.

Well, somehow, whether attributed to my skill or hers, or a combination, she completed the task...without any stripes or other incidents. The leather seats survived unscathed.

Anyway...I told her I was gonna tell everybody on the blog that she was riding down the road painting her toenails red. That is when I was informed that it was not red...it was coral. Well, see...this is exactly why I don't do the claw paint shopping around here.

I joked about posting "leaving on a jet plane" on the blog, but told her that I wasn't going to post that. It's one of those things that I really don't want stuck in my head.

If someone else wants to post it...Okay. Just not one of my favs. However, if lamentations is what Pottery wants, I'll see what I can do.

Here's one for starters.

Give me a few days before I have to get mournful okay?

Angie called. She landed safely at the destination, where her sister is picking her up. Flight was good except for a lot of turbulance says she.

Sounds like some good eating going on.
Had some chicken salad and crackers.

Hey, it was quick, easy, and only one bowl to clean.

Oh...and Shep, I didn't send that rain.
Don't recall you asking of it.
I only wish for what is asked for.

Angie is in the air, I'm home.
I'm also beat.
Traffic was horrendous!
So, I'm gonna have to chill out for a bit.

Will read up on all your adventures a little later.
Thanks for keeping an eye on the place guys, and for keeping the tunes spinning.

That's OK.
You can take a few hours off.
But we expect you to be back this evening....
Playing songs like "leaving on a jet plane" and whatnot and stuff, with mournful orchestration.....

heheheheheh, just pulling your Hoof, Hood.
Take care!

"Wish me Strength, Fortitude and Stuff."


That's an easy one.
We wish you Strength, Fortitude and Stuff."



And because Rob sent me my "afternoon shower" 45 minutes ago, I'm off the boat project and headed straight for the guitar for some rainy day tunes. :))


Appreciated !
All is going well, although the heat index is 99f, and I am drinking hot coffee.

Son came by, with a group of people and a truck-load of cameras, to film a young man cutting head-high grass with an old-fashioned 'swiper' which is a cutlass on a long handle.
This for a project/documentary he is working on for Gov. Propaganda (and to be fair, in Celebration of our Olympic athletes ahead of London).

The story is, that one of our first medalists was a weight lifter, and he said that he learned to lift when he was 12 years old.
His father kept goats, and every morning and evening he would have to go and cut a huge bundle of grass, clean and jerk it to his head, and walk 2 miles home....

Then, it was considered "growing up".
And Men were Hard.
Now, it would be considered "abuse".
And Men are sorely lacking.

Me too. It is called Pulled Pork in Georgia and the Carolina's and lots of other spots. If we are lucky it will be pulled apart with fingers and forks. Say 1700 - 1800 for sliders.

Cranked up the grill added water bath and applewood chips. By 0640 the Pork shoulder was on and smokin. Should have the 7 lb beast ready by 1800. Carolina rub. Looks like nice shoulder. Add a little vinegar slaw and rice and away we go. Grill is about 205 - 235. Hard to keep it steady.
Passing showers. Rigged a Beach Fly to keep the thermo probes dry. About two and half hours in and temp up to 110 F.

I have the Knife.
Hang on, I won't be long......

HEY - WAKE UP YOU SLACKERS - ITS 0515 HOURS

Roll your bones out of bed and hit the showers

We have places to go, people to see, and things to do

Rob - hit the road headed for the airport

Pottery - get that Honey-doo list out and prioritize

Shep - oh yeah, you are now retired like me

Ylee - tote those bags, lift those bales

HUP TWO THREE FOUR, HUP TWO THREE FOUR

OK, hit the ground running

Remember what happened to the Dinosaurs!!!


NO! NOT THAT.....

In fact, due to an errant error emanating early, I seem to have misplaced the document.
It's lost and gone, forever.

So, during our regular meeting over breakfast, there will be a New List created.
But I will ensure that there are a diversity of distractions, dark alleys of doubt, diversions and do-not's on my part during the discussion.

A man has to be proactive, at times.
It's the Survival Instinct, as you know.
Wish me Strength, Fortitude and Stuff.
These plans can often result in Nasty Surprises.
Member Since: October 24, 2005 Posts: 0 Comments: 24801
Yep, I'm up!
Good Morning. Thanks for the tunes and stuff.
Gotta start getting my act together.
Taking the big car. Gotta check oil & stuff, get it loaded, run through the check list, and eat something.

I'm gonna need more coffee.

Good downpour, plenty lightning.

I'll take pot's dinner:) I cheesed out with grilled cheese, tomato soup & some raw cucumbers.


Burp !
'scuse me...

Kingfish was yummy, with fried rice and a salad.

The North Coast was as pretty as could be today, calm, clear.
Nice view of the Spanish Main from down there, about 6 miles.

Tide was just about low and falling fast so current through the Bocas was strong.
Caught the fish behind Chacachacare island, then went into La Tinta bay to swim and eat.
Lots of Hawksbill nests on the beach.

We are dogsitting our friend's Dachshund and last night she slept under the covers with us. Today Tloml took Roxy to a neighbor who raises small dogs and the report was: Roxy is covered in fleas! Tloml is off to the Vet and I get to wash the sheets and vacuum the mattress.
- and finally listen to anything I want on your blog.
"Ragland" just winding down now.

Well, Skye,
That doesn't sound half bad either!

Angie leaves tomorrow for a week so Cappy will be locked in his cabin for the rest of the night.
(don't knock unless somebody is bleeding!)
