Subject: happy? - Sept 9 (Birling)

The 1st US national birling championship was in Omaha Nebraska on= 9/9/1898

In July 2005, the major birling event was at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. Check ESPN "Great Outdoor Games" next April or so. Also check each July in Hayward, Wisconsin The Lumberjack World Championships® [begun in 1960]

        For he goes birling down a-down the white water;
        That's where the log driver learns to step lightly.
        It's birling down, a-down white water;
        A log driver's waltz pleases girls completely.

                "Log-Driver's Waltz," by Wade Hemsworth; but not on his Smith/Folkways record.
                On the other hand, the McGarrigles' cartoon of it is just fine and includes too
                few seconds of actual birling in the wild.
