Thought I'd post this here as well:

http://www.folkblues.com/uke/

It's a veritable library of all sorts of things uke-related, from instruction to buying ukes, festvals, all sorts of different subjects. And all because I was researching George Harrison's love of the ukulele. :D

No, no, she's a fish that's just a little bit

Hey Kelly! I was poking around some of the uke sites and at Ukulele Boogaloo they have a spot called Uke World. You snap a pic of your uke in front of a famous (or not so famous, lol) local landmark and send it in. There are some very cool pics and I came across this....that I thought would be of interest to you. :hug:

I loved those, Laura :) I wish I had taken a few pics of just my uke in London now.

This was my favourite, H.C. Andersen

There are too many good ones, lol! The dinosaur! The beautiful, scenic ones...

Wish I could think of somewhere here....oh wait, I can. I just don't want to go to downtown Detroit all alone to do it, lol!

I think we all need to submit pics there- and of course, here! :D

LOL! Those are brilliant! I'll have to try and do that with Bret in New Zealand lol. Sheffield doesn't really have any landmarks. It has a lot of fountains, but I don't think Bret can swim :worry:

I like the idea of a statue....maybe the Fist (Joe Louis) or the Spirit of Detroit, posed so it looked like my uke was in their hand.....:)

One of these days! :D
