Tuesday’s A to Z challenge: “D”


Event Type: General Blogging

Start Date: Tuesdays, recurring weekly

Description: Every Tuesday I offer the “A to Z challenge”, walking step by step through the alphabet.
Last week we had the “tagged C”-challenge, so this week we’ll create a new turn with “D” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “D”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “D”!!! Myself I’ll focus on the protest song “Donna, Donna, Donna”:


Donna Donna, once introduced by Joan Baez: the song was a political statement in Israel during WWII to encourage resistance vs. Nazi racism … read more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donna_Donna.
background music: me, singing (multitrack recording with bass and guitar)

    What a nice rendition of the song, Fritz. It’s interesting to know that it’s a song about a calf being led to slaughter. Thanks for pointing out that it was a politcal statement during WWII. It’s always nice to learn new things everyday. My Photo Story involves Dinosaurs with an artsy music video. Have a great week ahead! =)

  8. What a blast from the past, Frizz. As teenager with a £4 guitar I used to sing this song, and sing it and sing it (poor parents). I love your version. Here’s my D – Double bass, double take and all that jazz down at the Eagle Tavern: http://wp.me/pKVAM-wE – photos raided from Team Leader’s B & W jazz phase.

    Also with 2 Gilad Azmon tracks on the end. Don’t know if you know this jazz man – a man of very left-wing views, but funny too. And a fantastic musician.

    • hi Debbie,
      I like Bruxelles very much, we have some friends there, sometimes we had a jam session in an Irish music pub; it is a very interesting city with many laid back people and great museums!

  11. Nice rendition Frizz, I don’t remember this song at all! My D is decorative this week: http://wp.me/pL5Ms-ZR


    • Hey Jude,
      “In line with the Islamic prohibition
      against the use of anthropomorphic forms…”
      – as a photographer I’m always sad about such restrictions!
      But you are right, this was a chance for a certain architecture
      and the world of ornaments …

    I missed ” C” as I was traveling and I can playfully mix “C” and” D” with the giant coat that I call my Bear Coat. I only break it out when it’s really freezing. I took a nice walk during a late night snow in my COAT in the DARK : ) http://wp.me/a2dwKf-1gd

    Your dogs are just so well mannered!

    Agree… fabulous music and singing! Thank you for sharing! Here is my entry for D: http://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/2014/01/28/tagged-d-dolomites/


    • Dolomites, interesting: “During WWI, many paths were cut into the range for military use. One of the famous wartime trails is the “Road of Tunnels”, which passes through 52 tunnels…”

  24. I don’t recall this song but I liked it and the information, Frizz.
    I do recall a song with the name Donna but it’s quite different
    and a lot more romantic.

    Thanks for hosting the alphabet challenge.



  25. You get better all the time, Frizz. I would guess my “D” is for “damn good” music. Bravo! 🙂

    like fish for breakfast
    I would not fight for this
    (but for scrambled eggs!)


  36. I learned to play this song 45 years ago from a Public Television show. Will have to see if I can find it on the internet. Thanks for the meaningful information about what it meant. I did not know.
    Always enjoy your music.

  37. Her name was Laura Weber and I found the music of Dona Dona (their spelling) on Spotify.
    I learned it in the 60s. She was on Public Televsion and taught guitar. That is how I learned to play.https://www.facebook.com/FolkGuitarWithLauraWeber

    she made me smile with “I had in mind D for donuts as in Dunkin but am not really too crazy about it because of my diabetes…” [I have diabetes too]

    I like her comment: “daring deer
    steps out from among the trees,
    quite close to where I was standing,
    to see what was going on.

  43. Even though we are cat people, sometimes a dog can steal your heart – please have a look at


    • wonderful intro:
      “D is for Dog
      the Devilish kind
      Digging up Dirt
      out of sight
      out of mind…”
      I’ll never forget our dog
      SARAH R.I.P.
      a bobtail, English sheep dog –
      thank you for giving a bridge
      to our dog memories;
      had fine days swimming with the dog in the ocean,
      having our daily breakfast with the dog,
      the evenings, the walks in the forest,
      playing with our children,
      he was an important part of the family:
      It seemed he had a kind of humor:
      stealing the ball during a soccer match –
      was the star for the audience –
      or when he ran into a church
      disturbing consequently a wedding ceremony…


      • Thank you – I am so glad I could bring back some happy memories for you: Sarah is gorgeous! I once knew a sheepdog that thought he was a lapdog, you can just imagine…
