And a strange, very young kid playing slide.......I know most of the players in Nashville, and I never saw this kid before. Must be some up and coming kid I know nothing about. Interesting, and VERY talented.

I suspect my agents will be posting me about him soon.
Amd one day, soon, you maybe singing this song about me.

Looks like the dobro/slide guitar player from Bering Strait. They were a bluegrass band out of Russia. 60 minutes' Morley Safer did a piece on them in 2008 or 2009. They work out of Nashville. Two CDs that I know of, plus a lot of session and tour work for other acts.

Hi Mark,

Trying to copy a utube kitty link - hope it works

I really like this - it just seems so French moody and melancholic, like one of those olf French language films from years ago.

Hope it works

Tom

Hello all, I have a kitty question.
About 3-4 months ago, we took in a stray kitty we named Mia. I posted about her at the time. Rose, my wife, doddles over her all the time, and calls her constantly. I have been very nice to Mia, but she doesn't like me at all. She runs from me, or when I have been lucky enough to pet her, she turns her back on me. That is not the problem though, as I handle snakes all the time, and even though some are very friendly, others are not. They all have good homes with me.

We have 5 kitties in all, with the other 4 being males from 13 to 17 years old. The 4 boys have always been good natured, even though the tuxedo cat and the Maine Coone have had a few scuffles over the years. Mia is next to impossible to get in a vet carrier, and requires a 45 minute battle and chase to wear her out so she can be caught.

The real problem is that she is bullying the 13 year old Siamese mix, named Graham. He is a very sweet and timid kitty, and Mia is driving him crazy, attacking him under the bed. His habits have all changed, and he is extremely nervous all the time now. Mia was an outdoor cat, but now lives indoors, as there are many predators where I live. I am open to suggestions of how to tame her down a bit, and stop picking on the smaller, older Graham. My wife and I feel really bad for the little kitty. I have asked my wife to not call Mia all the time, and just treat her like the rest of the kitties. She had singled her out, trying to make her feel welcome, but she is very stand offish. I am thinking that she should be treated just like "one of the boys".

If anyone has any suggestions, they would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

Steve

They just don't sometimes understand the meaning of sleep.

That is an understatement!
The kitties think we should get up at 4:30 AM on weekends!
There is no off button to the kitty alarm clocks!
I think they all went on the Internet, and saw the clips of Simons cat.
