Happy Thanksgiving!!

(To our American readers;
if you're Canadian, Happy Belated Thanksgiving!!)

(Oh, and if you're from somewhere
that doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving,
pick a favorite holiday and we'll extend
our best wishes for that one, too.)

We're taking some time off
to celebrate the holiday in our own way
here at Rambles.NET, so no new reviews today.
Best wishes, and see you here soon!

Someone pass me
a drumstick!

You think we're done? Ha!! Come back for more next week. (Meanwhile, browse through our vast archives of past editions and find some good stuff you might have missed over the years. We have more than 18 years' worth of our work online for your perusal, totaling more than 15,000 reviews!)

Thanks for stopping by!! I'm afraid you'll be disappointed, if you're here for new reviews, however. You see, today is St. Patrick's Day, and the guy who runs this website is a fiddler in an Irish band. That means today -- and, in fact, this whole week -- is incredibly busy. LOTS of shows, and little time for editing and coding.

So please, enjoy the holiday, have an Irish beer or two, support your local musicians ... and check back next week!
