I wanted to create this blog as a place where I can store and retrieve information for future reference. I chose the name Humble Uker Ramblings because I have started out strumming my father's 1950's painted Harmony ukulele. I think that the greatest appeal of the ukulele as "the people's instrument" is it's humble simplicity. My contact email is HumbleUker@gmail.com. I have also been working on a blog for the Baritone Ukulele called Humble Baritonics.
Celina from the C Monkeys and the UCSC, shared this fascinating link with me. I love old black & white movies and the famous actors and actresses in them. Yes, there's a sense of nostalgia, a slower pace, less blood, more emotional suspense. I am currently reading a biography of Irving Berlin. Here's a bit of history on Johnny Mercer by Robert Fulford.
