Lily Pad Concert

Tunefoolery

To cap off what has been a beautiful fall October day, I strolled happily to the Lily Pad in Inman Square Cambridge to take in a tunefoolery concert. Tunefoolery, of you are not aware is a group of musicians who have had mental health issues. These talented players play instruments, including guitars, accordians, flutes, clarinets, pianos etc. Some play acapella. Some play instruments and sing.

ANSWERS ALL MY SILLY QUESTIONS ABOUT "SURVIVOR"

I have watched, religiously, the CBS reality television show SURVIVOR, since it began in 2000. While watching 30-plus seasons, I acquired a long list of behind-the-scenes questions that could probably be answered via the Internet. But perusing the web is not my style. If possible, I like to go to a real live source.
