THE UKETTES ON OUR CRUISE TO MEXICO





I wanted to share this with all my bloggy buddies.  Some of you don’t
know this but I am in an all girl ukulele group....

We went on a cruise to Ensanada, Mexico .
We were able to take advantage of all the cool locations on the boat to
shoot our first “Video”..Our own talented Hannah did the editing and her
boyfriend Mark shot the video...Click here to watch:

BEING IN “THE UKETTES” HAS BROUGHT ME A LOT OF JOY.  IT HAS ALSO
HELPED ME WITH PERFORMING IN FRONT OF PEOPLE, WORKING TOGETHER
AS A TEAM, AND HAS ADVANCED MY MUSICALITY.   I NEVER DID MUSIC WITH WOMEN BEFORE AND WITH PLAYING WITH  GUYS I TOOK A BACKSEAT.
I WASN’T ABLE TO BE ME AND REALLY LET LOOSE.
                                              


ON A TECHNICAL NOTE, THIS POST HELPED ME TO LEARN HOW TO POST A VIDEO, 
WHICH I HAVE NEVER REALLY TRIED BEFORE.  IT SEEMED TO WORK OK BUT, HOW
DO I POST THE ACTUAL YOUTUBE CLIP...CAN ANYONE ANSWER THAT FOR ME?

AWESOME!!!! That was just so darn cute Cynthia...and look at you..you're a 'show girl'! That was so much fun to watch but I bet it was even more fun to be on the cruise. I love your friends tattoo's...did I tell you I have two myself? Shhhh. You girls have to make more of those videos..I think there's lots of people who would enjoy watching them. It's great to see women out there having a ball! If you find out how to put a video right on your blog please let me know ok...but the way you did it worked perfect. Look how far you've come my friend. Awesome! I hope you have a wonderful day....Maura :)

Hi there Cynthia,
You rock !!!! That was great and you all look as if you are having such fun. I think that an album needs to be made. Do you still play with the Ukettes ? I hope so.
You have so many talents, Cynthia. Writing, jewellery, music....and I bet there are a few things that we haven't seen from you....yet !!!!
I haven't a clue about how to put videos on my blog. I'm hopeless. I can usually work things out when I want to do things but, not if it's compicated !! You seem to have managed it O.K.
Have a rock and roll week. XXXX

Well, you KNOW I'm a big Ukettes fan and I LOVE your video! It looks like you had a lot of fun making it -- love that big blue and silver sombrero. And Cynthia -- pretty sweet "Dwight Yoakam moves" right at the end!

Janet said...

What a fun video!! It's plain to see how much fun you're all having. As for the YouTube stuff, I'm so not techie!

PK Studios said...

okay, that's SO weird that we picked the same one! I was trying it out but thought that I could go back to my original but NO, I CANT! I'm not ready for a change yet! : ) But I can't figure out how to find my old template. Part of the problem is that I don't have a nice photo like you do for my title...just my logo which doesn't look right on a beige background. Hmmnmm. And look at the time! EEEK!

Blessings
