Arch Guitar

We saw this guy yesterday -- 

very interesting classical guitar on his 11 and 12 string instrument

What is an archguitar?

The archguitar is a modern instrument designed by Peter Blanchette and Walter Stanul in 1980. Archguitars can have from 9 to 11 strings, giving them a much larger musical range than 6-string guitars. Most of Blanchette's recordings are of baroque, renaissance and modern classical music, though the instrument lends itself well to all acoustic styles.

Why did the Bear Cross the Bridge ?


 This bridge is on the   Old Donner Pass Highway.
It has a spectacular view of
   Donner   Lake  and   Donner Pass on Route 80.

A bear was walking across  Rainbow   Bridge  ( Old Hwy  40 at Donner  Summit ,
Truckee) on Saturday when two cars also crossing the bridge scared the bear
into jumping over the edge of the bridge. Somehow the bear caught the ledge 
(see unbelievable photo, above) and pulled itself to safety. Authorities decided 
that nothing could be done to help Saturday night so they returned Sunday 
morning to find the bear sound asleep on the ledge.

After securing a net under the bridge the bear was tranquilized, fell into the net, lowered, then woke up and walked out of the net.

There is a moral to this story you know.

This old bear made a wrong move and found he was hanging by his nails.
Somehow he was able to pull himself up onto the ledge where he saw he was in a very bad, impossible
situation and what did he do?

Yep, he took a nap and sure enough the situation took care of itself while he was asleep. 
The moral is that when confronted with a bad situation sometimes the best solution is . . .
 take a nap.
