Things and people I missed

I hope you all have enjoyed my SUUSI site. Indeed, for me, this was the year of the Green Flower. I sang this song for Anne on her birthday, and she really enjoyed it.

The things I missed were Detrich Hall (Owens was a madhouse), La Bamba, and Neuro-linguistic Programming (conflicted with my own workshops), and some contra dancing (wanted to see johnsmith instead). People I missed were Marlene and Bob Lieb, Peter Mayer, and Craig Johnson.

Workshop proposals due in October

I've never filed an application to lead a workshop. I might have a change of heart this year and make an application. But, my problem is -- perhaps like that of others -- having too many ideas on what to teach. I can't narrow the decision to one or two ideas.

Problem 2

My next problem is from the fact that I really enjoy being in class. This is a vaction. Going to class and only needing to bring a pencil is such a snap. Teachers can't take classes and there are always so many good offering to choose among.

Blog your ideas here

I'd love to encourage pending teachers to pitch there ideas for classes here, at this blog. Perhaps we can fish for feedback, before the class submission is even made?

In the weeks to come, I might like your honest reactions to what I'm thinking about offering as an instructor.

Personal SUUSI page

Jim's photo archive is a treat. Now I've got to invite him to this blog.

Invited Alexis -- SUUSI Boyz soon

Alexis has been the long-term leader of the SUUSI Boyz. I sent him an email to introduce the concept to him before going to all the boys (as there are only a couple dozen). I'd love for this blog to get a good jump-start from the SUUSI Boyz.

If you are NOT computer literate, this blog utility is still easy to understand. It is free and operated by Google. With its recent IPO, Google is flush with cash and I'd expect this to be around for some time.

The color is "PINKish" out of respect for tall Paul. He has requested that the SUUSI Boy's Ts be pink.

Another thing to do is subscribe to the blog. One email is then sent to you as the content gets updated. And, without using a password, you can insert you comments to any other posting. A good rule of thumb is to post 5-times as a comment to once as a "contrubitor" -- as contributors put their message(s) on the front page.

Other web pages are good support tools too. So, this does NOT really take the place of the offering from the other(s).

Blues Class Invited

The first group I invited to join this blog were participants in the Blues songwritting class, including Lightn' Bob. We sang a song dedicated to Tom Ridge on the last night.
