McSpadden Mountain Dulcimer for Sale in Memphis, Tennessee

I'm selling my McSpadden Mountain Dulcimer, because I am VERY short on cash. I'm in Australia, but the dulcimer is in Memphis. Thanks to my friend, Cindy Miller, I have these lovely pictures to show what the dulcimer looks like. I would love for someone to enjoy playing this instrument!

Steiglitz, Victoria, Australia

I played music and spent the night in a town called Steiglitz.....about an hour's drive from Daylesford.  I was told that Steiglitz is an old gold rush, ghost town, and now has about ten families living in its city limits.  My friends and I camped in the hay shed across from the Scotts Hotel, after we spent Saturday evening playing music on the veranda.

Radio Springs Hotel, Lyonville, Victoria, Australia -- Amazing Place

Adrian and I were playing our dulcimers recently at the Radio Springs Hotel near Daylesford, in Lyonville, Victoria, when a couple of amateur photographers asked us to allow them to take pictures.  We agreed and let the photographers direct us on where to sit.  Derrick Lee took this picture and a few others and said he would mail copies to Adrian.  I think it's pretty cool that Adrian actually received a couple of photos in the mail!  The original picture is not digital.....and I am 10,000 miles away from my trusty I took a picture of this picture to share the talent of Derrick Lee and to say thank you, publicly.  There's a photo exhibition going on nearby.

Kookaburra at Tasma House & Gardens in Daylesford, Vic

It has taken a LONG time to get this critter captured with my camera while visiting Daylesford......but, I was finally successful!

Tasma House and Gardens
The Best Kept Secret in Daylesford

This week I've been helping Adrian Kosky with his blogs about Tasma House and Gardens.  As I tweak pages and look through the window above this desk, I see amazing beauty!  Here's a simple sample:

Blogged Up

For the past few years, I have been learning how to use blogs.  I have tried several different approaches to blogging. I'm new to "Blogger," and I am still learning.

Unfortunately, I have not learned much about how to use RSS.  So, I keep linking all my blogs to each other.  Today I'm using "Blogger" to blog about my collection of blogs.
