Rather than the impersonal Tracking feature, I'll wish my writers friends at AD (and others that don't read or listen to me) A MERRY CHRISTMAS! Besides, you can't upload this fine watercolour print of a Winter Scene in the tracker feature.
No, I did not "paint" this beautiful watercolour but my sister who has infinite good taste sent it to me last year with the comment that my Dad used to paint like this! Of course I love the card and I hope you do too...

I was to have posted a notice here of a podcast of my Christmas music but looks like Christmas will be gone before I can get the mp3s ripped and ready and loaded. (It IS a lot of work on my slow computer!) It is a recording of classical (Handel) and English Christmas carols (no voice, only keyboards)such as "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" with jazzy improvisations added, that I did some years ago (not on CD) Nobody seems to want Christmas music afterwards (FREE of course) but if anyone's interested perhaps I can still do it.
The podcast would be available on my new Google Blog and would play automatically when you go there. Any takers? Otherwise too much work for no listeners.
And thanks to all my reviewers here at AD and especially to those handful that have patronized and supported my musical release efforts. It is much appreciated and needed. Stay safe during the Holidays...
Peace & Goodwill to All, Michael Guy

Well whatever it was that i heard, I loved it of course...I am very fond of piano.
I have not really worked in my blog, I am glad to have seen this post to remind me. Yours looks nice & I like the auto play of music.
I love the card, I also used to paint like that. I did one similar, but I put a raggady wood mail box & post where the tree is & the tree on the other side & the snow on a cabin...I regret I gave it away
Hope Your Holiday's Are Wonderful
To bad Comcast don't come out you will be a jet on line when they do, it's superfly & superfast....

Thank you, Michael. I posted my "homemade" Christmas card a couple of days ago as a rhyming acrostic. I send you warmest greetings with love and peace,

If your father painted like that, I know where your artistry comes from.

Will look for those jazzed-up Christmas songs next year.
