    Finished up brewing a beer that I started on last night. Cleaned up my mess. Went out and posted signs for the candidate debate that my community club is holding. Put down some pavers around the porch, much more to be done there, though. Now we are about to head out to a drum circle.

    Sorry you asked yet?

    Well, I am back from the drum circle now, so I will tell you.

    It is a gathering where people get together and play drums. Sometimes people will also play digeridoos, rattles, shakers, recorders, etc as well. Normally the players form a circle so that everyone can see everyone else. Most of the drums are hand drums, played without drumsticks, by hitting them with your hand.

    Most, though not necessarily all of the drums are of an African style called djembe, pronounced gem-bay. There are also African drums called boogeraboos (not sure of the spelling), and doondoons (?spelling again). Then there are a couple of Middle Eastern styles called doombeks, and tablas. Let's not forget the good ol' bongos, congas, baliphones, and several others that I don't know the name of.

    Now.... are you sorry you asked?

    Drum circles can run the gamut from crazy jam sessions with everybody playing different rhythms, to very structured affairs with something akin to a director calling in certain drummers at particular times to play their individual parts. The two different ones that myself and my son go to are somewhere in between, with a rhythm being agreed upon, but everyone is free to play whatever they want that still fits with that rhythm. The one we went to tonight is a very family oriented situation, with little kids running around and such.

    No, actually it sounds interesting. I'm sure a beer or two makes it sound awsome!

    It didnt actually hurt THAT bad... I got it on ice immediately, and the only time it hurt was at home, when I took it out of the ice to put on burn gel and a bandage... after about 10 minutes it was numb again. I think i melted my nerves to avoid the pain...

    Right now he is on his knees on a sidewalk in Bangladesh, doing emergency open heart surgery on a random peasant woman.

    No, but her incredibly hot sister will be forever grateful. The sister's warlord husband doesn't share those sentiments.
