Last week we had the “tagged i”-challenge, so this week we’ll create a new turn with “j” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “j”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “j”!!! Myself I’ll focus on “John Henry”:

John Henry

Let me sing the ballad from JOHN HENRY (thanks to Jeff Burns from Brooklyn, he added his 5-string claw hammer banjo to my vocals, kazoo and guitar).

    I have Jurassic Park for today! And an instrumental for you! Enjoy! =)

    • I didn’t know this wonderful music before – the sound of the instrument: great! I like the musician’s concentration! for sure needed by the flying dinosaurs during flight avoiding crashes, making good touch downs; P.S.: I read today in the German news magazine DER SPIEGEL, that 40% of US citizens do not know, that human beings are followers of animals, developed before – is that possible, that creationism has such a power of blocking information? And no Jurassic park project makes it better?

    • hi Lynne,
      nothing compares to your J-lamp with the acrobatic upside down stunt! Not even the “Fragata Presidente Sarmiento originally built as a training ship for the Argentine Navy and named after Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, the seventh President of Argentina, considered to be the last intact cruising training ship from the 1890s…”

    • just a little push; sometimes we need a little push by a child, to make the next creative step forward, dear Tish; today, early in the morning, on our daily path to the bakery, my grandson asked me: “Why do have Donuts a hole in their middle?” I had to hesitate, but then felt a push, looking to the sun uprising: “It’s for the sun,” I answered: “the sun likes to shoot her first beams through the hole of a Donut.” So my little grandson (aged 4) stretched his Donut-hand to the sky and the sun made her first early morning shooting.

  16. When I read your post today I thought of John Lennon and wished to share some of my favourite songs: http://collinesblog.wordpress.com/2014/03/11/remembering-john-lennon/
    The music is a little different to what you shared with us today but I hope you enjoy it 🙂

    • thank you, Colline, for “Remembering John Lennon” – he wasn’t only a musician, he was a kind of philosopher, politician, agitator for social change too… (together with Yoko Ono) – of course I often enjoyed playing many of his sometimes very ironic songs too …

          oh I’ve a creative song writer now – that’s what I’ve been longing for so long: your permission, to sing your lyrics: that challenge will make my day today! Actually it’s still night here, but during daylight I’ll send the results to you: my singing on soundcloud and wikiloops – and a blog post with a quotation of your lyrics, my singing – and of course a back link to your page, O.K.?

          Jack and Jill,
          are hipsters still
          drink mason
          Jars of water
          B2
          Jack Jives by night
          his band’s delight
          Jill dreams
          of being a potter
          CCCCCC3
          Jack’s day Job sucks
          roundabout he mucks
          writing Jingles
          down on paper
          D4
          Jumbled days slide by
          with lone Jailbird sigh
          yet still he is
          a Japer
          —————————
          II. BASS – A5

          Just so Jerky
          B6
          in skinny Jeans faded
          vintage closet raided
          they ate all

          Jack pops Jam cakes
          Jill lovingly bakes
          vegan to keep
          to keep her figure
          D8
          an idea Jolts bright
          Joyful time is right

          III. – A9
          Jack and Jill
          quite fit the bill
          Jolly in a big
          Joint venture
          B10
          now Judge and Jury
          in capitalist fury
