There’s a Puddle and Some Mud…

We have a massive puddle in our driveway – it’s so big that every spring my neighbor and I joke about having waterfront property (and somehow, the joke never gets old – I think it’s because we’re delerious due to the warm weather).

Spring is finally here – and the kids are out all day, every day in the puddle and mud. I thought I’d share a clip from my tribute to puddles – it’s a song entitled “Puddles” (ok, so I’ve never been terribly creative in the title department). Enjoy!

The Virtual Campfire…or how about a little Chicken on a Raft?

Need a song, or two, or seventy? I was casting around for some tunes to sing and play, and I must have typed in” campfire tunes” and KABOOM (or KA-GOOGLE) I found The Virtual Campfire.

I ignored the fact that somehow the idea of a virtual campfire is a little pitiful and clicked onward…to find…lot’s of songs! Not only lots of songs, but lots of songs sung by British people around a real campfire…crazy, but just so crazy that it works.

To give you a sample, here’s that well-known favorite, Chicken on a Raft.  OK, so maybe it’s not your favorite song, but it’s a darn good song, worth singing, and it’s some indication of the depth of Virtual Campfire’s library…it’s big, and fun, and goofy at times, but definitely worth perusing and singing along.

p.s. If you do sing along, try to light a real fire so you’re not so pitiful…or if you’re entirely comfortable with the virtual world, play this video of a virtual fire and then sing-a-long – with your virtual friends.
