I don't know to this day if she has worked out why I like walking in the woods.  It's a moot point and I wouldn't like to push it.  She is not a fool and can easily put 2 & 2 together so she may realise but say nothing -  but in fact, on balance I think it has not occurred to her that I'd walk naked in, what to her is, a public place.

This tune, a dynamite version of "What a Little Moonlight Can Do", from 1935, which has Benny Goodman, Teddy Wilson and a young Billie! Free swinging jazz from top performers and musicians having fun, before they all became superstars. An absolute delight!

Great stuff! Thank you for that Duane.

However, you also wrote:

Why there are still people that do not like jazz is beyond me!

My twenty year old son says the same thing to be about rap music (which I remain convinced is correctly spelled with a leading silent C).

Have fun,

Indeedy!  Thanks for the link!  Being a Benny Goodman fan, picked up from childhood playing my grandma's 78 records and then being somewhat educated in swing Jazz as a teenager by my uncle and inheriting his Jazz cds when he died, it's nice to see that at least one of us, Duane, is as big a musical taste fossil as me! LOL!  :D (I miss the animated laughing out loud emoticon from TSNS!)

I thought everybody loves Billy Holiday, no disinterest in Benny Goodman, or they just haven't been exposed to it. Wasn't there a movie about her? Wasn't Diana Ross "Lady sings the Blues" about a Billie Holiday character?
 What's so unusual? SHe be blues, original soul, emotion expressed in a vocalist's song.

Tonight were going to a local blues extravaganza of several groups and local talented favorites, tomorrow night rhythm and blues.

JAzz without her kind of heart, I find dull. The drum brushes, the go no where, all up in the head, no affect, melancholy stuff, the new jazz, I dislike. I dislike fat ladies singing opera, I am still angry at disco, it sucks.

Everything else, I either can't get enough, or I like some of it, or not too much of it. I have a tendency to identify constructed commercial music and be disinterested, even ripped off by it. That's my personal tastes.

What I'm into changes through time, week to week. Lately, I'm off on Indian classic, some 90's soft rock, ancient local country: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9kPdEDr7oA

A smattering of punkrock, and anything that pops up on eclectic KXCI radio: https://kxci.org/
Listen Live.

To each his own...I suppose that it's all good.

OOps! TOPeeK!!!uh, I..uh...hmmm? DF loves zydeco, we dance. She can't handle more than three, sometimes two punk rock songs in a row...uh, we dance naked when ever we can...it is somehow much better that way...even punk rock is better naked, apparently...but not more than three songs, Pistols, Rancid, but not Circle Jerks...Not Circle Jerks, not even naked....

Back to topic,

We discussed the jacuzzi thing again today and whilst it's probably a pipe dream (water pipe that is!) Mrs N had been doing some research on swimspas.  I took the opportunity again to say firmly that even if we could afford it, I wasn't interested in purchasing such a thing if she insisted that swim costumes had to be worn.  Quite matter-of-factly she said "No, I wouldn't make you wear trunks if we had our own jacuzzi or swimspa.  In fact I might not even wear swimwear myself - it seems silly, you wouldn't wear one in the bath, would you?.  Woo hoo - is emancipation dawning!  There appears to be some liberalisation of attitude at any rate (see AHG topic).  I do hope so!

If you get one point out the paragraph in the instructions which indicated that clothing tends to upset the chemical levels which kep it clean and safe.

Endeavor to persevere.

REally?! How is that, JOhn? Does it explain? I know how clothing upsets my chemical imbalance, but the water, well that's a new one. Sounds like another argument for being naked. Can you inform us, please?

I don't know the full details but my son-in-law, who is in no way a nudist, forbids all clothing in their hot tub because it plays the cat and banjo with the chemical balance.
I believe it is something to do with the chemical residues which remain in the garments after washing.

Er..is that tautology?

I shall look out for the clothing vs chemical balance thing as we research.  Never mind luxuries like spas! First hurdle is to get the house conveyed  - which is no mean feat given the parless state of the legal profession these days!

I've never owned a spa and I wonder at the chance of a bacterial issue. The temperature isn't hot enough to get rid of all the little buggers so chlorine is used for the rest.

I have read articles about the benefits of nudity in relation to the absence of clothes. A prime environment for bacteria are the warm, moist sites on the human body that are also shielded from UV radiation.

Between the UV and the chlorine I guess most bacteria are killed.

It is curious how many people will agree to being nude in a spa but nowhere else.

What is it about spas?

No, that's one of my favorite lines by comedian Chief Dan George, in the 1976 classic movie "The Outlaw Josey Wales"!!!!
