Happy International Women's Day!

Do you love roots/folk music, ukuleles and inspirational lyrics? Do you love women who follow their bliss in a totally kick-ass way? I DO!!

So here's a special treat to mark International Women's Day -- The Ukettes (Cynthia, Hannah and Laura) from California singing an original song written by Cynthia called "Can't Keep a Good Girl Down!"

This is what International Women's Day is all about!





You can find a few more videos by The Ukettes on YouTube. And guess what? Cynthia has also just started a blog called Beatnheart -- check it out here!

What a great way to start my day. You always make Monday's special...and every other day, too...but Monday's I usually have a case of the blah's until I visit you. Thanks for being you.
