I am very new here, and I'm really pleased that it is so easy to navigate this site. It is really nice, and I am looking forward to the next year and learning, learning, learning! Practice, practice, and practice. I am planning on going to Beckley to take dulcimer classes, thanks to this site, and I am so excited.

Happy Birthday to FOTMD! It's been a great year. I haven't been around here as much as I would like, but last day of work is Saturday. After that I'll be retired. Hope to spend a little more time here. Have a great day and celebration everyone.

OK, I'm out of the loop. What is our "official" theme song??? Please don't tell me you all mean "Boil Em Cabbage Down". I don't know it. If it is, can I just play "Old Joe Clark" instead???? Phil Myers said:
I'll certainly be playing it!

I love this site. I enjoy checking in everyday and seeing how everyone is doing and what's new. I love having a place to share my stories and learn on all the wonderful forums and groups that have been started that answer just about any question you could possibly come up with. I know it makes my day and I sure a lot of others as well . Thank you so much for your insite into starting a place so great for people to cometogether in friendship and a common love of music and the Mountain Dulcimer. A big THANKS Lisa.

Strumelia, that is not really you is it? Tho' I suppose the hunk of pie might just be a link!! And party time is nearly with us......



Strumelia said: No, that's not me, it looks to be from around 1920's to me. That would make me pretty long in the tooth! But it does represent how I feel. Smile.gif

Seems like every other week is a party around here. I can't get any work done! lol

Hey you guys are starting to embarrass me! (but thanks!)Remember, FOTMD stands for friends (plural) of the mountain dulcimer. It's not about me- this place would be pretty dull with just me here! We should all pat ourselves on the back for making this place special. It's so great to have this little shack where any of us can just stop in anytime, sit on the porch to cool our heels, swap stories, work out some tunes, show some snapshots, and cut ourselves a hunk o' 1 year anniversary pie in the kitchen...

I know many of you can't believe FOTMD is already one-year-old, but I can't believe it is only one year old! I just assumed when I joined that you folks had been discussing dulcimer-related issues for years and I was crashing a long-standing party. It is amazing how quickly a sharing and considerate online community has been formed. There is so much anger and venom on discussion boards all over the Internet that it is a joy to come to FOTMD to find kind-hearted, friendly, and encouraging people with whom to share a musical passion.I assume we have simply taken on the personality of our beloved founder, Strumelia, who continues to nurture us with her knowledge and love of traditional music and those who like playing it.

Coming up on July 29th 2010.....Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer's ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY .

How can it be ?? Seems like just a few short months ago.

And as if that weren't exciting enough....
likely in August a week or two right after that, we will reach 1000 MEMBERS . Amazing!
