Meet My Home-Made Guitar

After many years of thinking about creating some sort of home-made instrument or guitar-like object, I finally got up the nerve to actually do it. Yep, I built a little guitar out of a cigar box, a stick of wood, and some nuts and bolts and things. I just joined and downloaded the plans and got advice and ideas from the other members of the site. If I can do it, it's got to be pretty darn easy.

Hearst Castle Tour

Here, as promised earlier, is the final video of the "Vloggers Caravan 2010" road trip, a tour of the Hearst Castle, in San Simeon on California's Central Coast. The Castle was built by architect Julia Morgan for William Randolph Hearst, newspaper mogul, inspiration for Orson Welles' Citizen Kane, and Patty's grand-dad. The music here is another original soundtrack by yours truly - to hear it without the tour narration, click here for my music page and select "Casa Grande."
