Star Spangled Banner

Jake Shimabukuro at Wrigley Field

The Star Spangled Banner

Here's a song for Barack Obama and all who worked to get him elected. It is performed by Jake Shimabukuro, from Obama's home state of Hawaii. Shimabukuro is playing his Ukulele at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

On election night young Judy Moon Finn from Friday Harbor was dancing in the streets of Seattle with fellow students from the University of Washington. She told her Mom, my friend Therese, that as they moved out into the streets people came out of their houses, some people in pajamas, free drinks were liberally served and a whole crowd of people linked arms singing the Star Spangled Banner. Wow. It sounds a little bit different to me now.


  1. Good morning Peggy Sue

    Greetings from Plymouth UK - after reading some of your blog – hope you didn’t stay up too late last night !

    Why am I contacting you ?

    As an artist I hope you will appreciate the idea behind the following -

    In a somewhat random act of artistic interaction I have come across your blog next to mine at this precise point in cyberspace and time. Have a look at my blog – I have placed a link on it for your site – for a month or so - under the heading "My Dog Ate Blogs" – take a look.

    If you fancy being a permanent part of this blog just say yes and I will put a permanent link for you on my site blog-roll - “My Dog Has Eaten These Blogs and Says Yum Yum” – I have regular visitors from 39 countries (and counting) and regular followers – again from all over the world -from Argentina via the USA to Indonesia – so if you like the idea of lots of people from all corners of the globe paying you a visit – come and join !

    In return all I would like is a link somewhere on your site.

    Have a look and see what you think.

    By the way - if you want to print out any of my images - feel free - some are quite nice ( I hope) – just tell your friends where you found them – and remember a lot of my work is for sale.

    Hope you find my site interesting as well.

    Best wishes from Plymouth UK !
