Subject: RE: Mudcat Worldwide Singaround - On Zoom Mondays
Just dropped in on a whim, after spending a fair amount of time on Chiff and Fipple and latterly wasting vast amounts of time on Twitter over the last few years.

Delighted to see there are some familiar names still showing up, and totally unsurprised to see Joe still doing that public-service thing.
And almost nostalgic to see that my old work email address popped up when I logged in again, given that I retired in 2011.

I originally ventured into the Café on a work-related mission, believe it or not: a senior official in my workplace wanted to quote some verses of "The maid of Aughrim" in a speech, and I was blown away by how, within 24 hours, Catters in different parts of the world came up with more information than I could possibly use. So a worldwide singaround sounds particularly appropriate.

I drifted away from the Mudcat for a variety of reasons, one of which I won't go into, but also because, as a non-singer, I always felt like a bit of a chancer with little to contribute, and C&F became a better fit. I might listen in to one of the next Zoomarounds.

BTW, does a surgical circumcision count, Joe? ;-)
