http://www.austin360.com/ Sometimes I like to play 'World Turning' on vinyl (from 'Rumours' by Fleetwood Mac, their first album with Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham), on the Yamaha system out back - we love the Mick Fleetwood drum solo with the volume turned about half way up. Christine McVie is very powerful on on this tune - a collaboration with Buckingham. Don't try this at home with your headphones. LoL!

Dancing is real big around here. I recently took dancing lessons at the university by joining a folk dance group to learn world dancing. We really like the two-step around here, 2/4. Polka music and dancing the two-step is sort of like a the 'polska', which has a 3/4 beat; a Swedish dance style, but the Polka dance is apparently from Polish roots. Polka music has very popular ane over time evolved into Ragtime dances, Rockabilly and Cajunta music styles. Further south, polka music began to sound a lot like Cajun music. My favorite is the 'Beer Barrel Polka'. LoL! Polka Swing Two Step: http://youtu.be/gyTXIzQEvCs Texas Saturday Night: http://youtu.be/zj1JCUKD9XM
