More live Aussie Rules Football from Melbourne. Essendon leads North Melbourne 71 to 61 with just under 9 minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

And no one is waiting for anyone to come back from the hospital, thank goodness.

I tuned in to a Celtic Thunder special on PBS during the gap between the end of one show and the start of the evening news.

The first song they performed after I tuned in was "The Dutchman" set in Amsterdam and written by Chicago's Michael Peter Smith.

The next song was "A Place In The Choir" by Bill Staines, an American folk music icon and winner of the National Yodeling Championship.

Ah.  This is obviously some strange usage of the word "Celtic" that I hadn't previously been aware of.

They tried, I suppose, by messing with the lyrics.  The first line of the chorus is "All God's critters got a place in the choir" but they changed critters to "creatures."  They changed possum to otter, and raccoon to weasel, but they left in the alligator and coyote.  The only good thing was hearing the line about critters with bass voices (which, come to think of it, includes a hippopotamus!) being sung by an actual bass.

 

Yes, the fourth line is a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference.  Well spotted!
