While spending a weekend in Charlottesville with our familes, my friend Frank played some tunes he likes while we were hanging out. One song he played is Eatin’ Out Of Your Hand by Bill Harrell. This is a great, classic bluegrass song.
Three versions of Eatin’ Out of Your Hand are linked below:

Quote of the Week
Just as humans are able to deny themselves an excess of the fats and sugars that their bodies are trained to crave, so too must they remain cautious about technology: “Every technology will alienate you from some part of your life. That is its job. Your job is to notice.” Only by doing this can the last generation to know a pre-internet world ensure that those who come after appreciate what has been lost.

My daughter got a really nice steam train book for her fourth birthday entitled Steam Train, Dream Train by Sherri Duskey Rinker.
The story in Steam Train, Dream Train is similar to Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo, which I reviewed earlier. Both books make a toy train in a child’s room seem to come alive as it is loaded and goes on its journey. Both are also wonderfully illustrated. I highly recommend Chugga Chugga Choo Choo to toddlers and Steam Train, Dream Train to more like 3+ year-olds as it is a longer book with more words. Both books will be thoroughly enjoyed by young railfans and their parents.

OCMS and Bob Dylan Songs
The album also includes an unreleased/unfinished Bob Dylan song entitled Sweet Amarillo. In finishing a Dylan song, Sweet Amarillo is a similar OCMS effort to their smash hit Wagon Wheel (from the O.C.M.S. album), another song that Bob Dylan had originally started writing.

Sweet Home is a Kevin Hayes number. Kevin, the OCMS guitjo player, has provided tracks on previous albums that I also like for their catchiness and humor:
