Happy Holidays from Ten Penny Bit
Two tidbits left over from last month:
1. What is an Indian Summer? The answer was provided by John French
It seems that at the end of the year settlers knew that when all of the
harvest was done, the Indians looked upon those last warm days as a
chance to send out a few more foraging parties against the settlers to
increase their provisions. So "Indian summer", or the days of warmth
after all of the harvests and first frost, were a time to be watchful
2. The band name; well, it's overwhelming, and we are going to listen.
Ten Penny Bit will remain Ten Penny Bit. Thanks to everyone for their
imput. As we expand into other areas of music, you may see us forming
another band to explore these areas, but Ten Penny Bit will not change!
3.A site you MUST check out:
The Kennedy Center Millennium Concerts Online: HUNDREDS of free concerts
to watch and listen to, with programs from Celtic, folk, blues, jazz,
dance, ethnic, classical, top name performers in their genres! All you
