Yoohoo - am I the first? Okay, I'll start. I retired in January because my employer shut down.I'm home all day.Busy but relaxed. I'm outside in the yard almost all day.Our wooded lot means I can work in the shade from morning until dark.My BP was always high when I was working. Went to the doc and BP is now 115 over 75. Retirement is good for yourhealth. Breakfast was yogurt, 1/2 banana and coffee (a major food group); lunch was celery, cumber and red pepper with grated Italian cheese- eaten leisurely on the shaded back deck; dinner was a salad with ham - the real ham from big chunks - , a crescent roll and carrot cake, all with a nice glass of Riesling.Also use an elliptical, going 3.25 miles in 45 minutes on level 15 out of 20 on the machine. Tryin' to live a bit longer!! Oh, and playing dulcimer is good for your health, too. Iwork on a song or 2 each morning and again in late afternoon. Ear yoga. I'm always more tranquil after playing tunes.

Mountain Dulcimer Cd's you like to listen too.


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

While I was following the links from those messages here (which is always trip worth taking!), I came across Stephen Seifert, who plays the md like it was a uke, a guitar, a harmonica and a sweetheart, all in one.If you need some more superb playing and singing, check him out, especially at the Pickin' Porch. Yes, he does traditional, but with a cool twist. Hope you enjoy it.

That is a classy pic!! The lighting, the coats, the facialexpressions and the black & white plus blond and brunette, all look like an album coverfor either folk or blues/rock. I was 15 in '67. Soooo much fun! Thanks for the shooting star.

Here's one from my teenage hippy days... (I'm the blond one) I think it was around 1967 and I must have been 13 or 14.
I remember buying that fur coat at the Salvation army for like $3. Right away my friend Susan got one too. LOL!
