He had a left hand like God. He didn't know what key he was playing in, but he played them all. He could play the ragtime stride bass, but it bothered him because his stomach got in the way of his arm, so he used a walking bass instead. I can remember when I was thirteen - this was 1896 - how Turk would play one note with his right hand and at the same time four with his left. We called it 'sixteen' - they called it boogie-woogie - Eubie Blake remembering William Turk, from Giles Oakley's The Devil's Music, BBC

Jeez Louise, what is that thing that Stuart uploaded?? Looks like a cross between a kiwi, an aardvark and a tasmanian devil. A kiwidevilvark?

I'm afraid to ask.  :P  Actually, it looks familiar but I dunno what it is called -- some kind of anteater?  Stuart, what the heck is it!?

It's Almiqui. A native of Cuba, Almiqui was thought to be extinct until a live one was discovered a few years ago. Almiqui lives underground and seems to only come out at night. Almiqui is also on a Cuban coin and a stamp. Almiqui's rediscovery is the kind of thing that gives me hope.

Aw, but thou art wrong.

If you zoom in on the United Kingdom, Guernsey and the Baliwick of  Jersey are indeed on the map (as well as Herm and Sark!).

I wonder when the "zip code" table will be finished.  Rural zip codes in central Washington do not work - I have to enter a Seattle or near Seattle zip code.  Even with this minor glitch, its great to see the weenie map.  I might have missed it, but is there a link to the map on the home page or left navbar?  Cheers, Charlie

Right below the calendar on the left column "Member Map"  with a graphic below.  Maybe I should add a link to the User Menu...???

Hey when I lived in Central WA we didn't want Seattle to know we were there.  :)

Well I owe it an apology it does have Guernsey  :o except that it is still wrong in that it's the Balliwick of Guernsey instead of the Balliwick of Jersey, but really who cares as it's a great improvement on the other map we had  :)

So now, how do I delete my original entry, can't seem to do that!

Post your pins folks if you are so inclined, only 40 so far.

Interesting to see we have a weenie in Tenerife in the Canary Islands!
My favorite auntie, who gave me first guitar, lives there.

GRRRRRRRRRR!! I've been trying to post my pin and all I get is "Invalid City - please try again". The concept of an invalid city rather appeals to me poetically, but how the **** do I get my pin and (very fetching) photo onto the map? I don't want have to go to City Hall and tell the Lord Mayor that actually this place does not exist; it was a city when NYC was a couple of shacks by the Hudson...

Helpppp!!

Can you delete feeble attempts for pin postings.  Google has finally updated their zip code table.  Please delete

I will repost a new pin with picture.  I might win an award for the "clueless postings".  I still have to look at the .php/htm code for the weenie clock.  I am still swamped.  Happy holidays!  Cheers, Charlie
