Acappella App to Try at Home

Cool app. And a peaceful song.

A Guest Post by Jay Davis

My daughter Katie experimented last night with a recording app for singing called “Acapella.” I posted the result, with her permission, on social media, and I was told it might be a nice thing to share with the community.

I do so, both because it is a lovely, short piece of a beautiful song, and also because she really enjoyed the app and you or someone in your home may as well.  In essence, it allows you to record/video yourself singing with yourself, not a bad option in these physically distant days (ok, fine, it might not be a great option for some of us to have our only singing accompaniment be ourselves, but it doesn’t have to be shared with anyone 🙂 ).

It is apparently $9 per month for its full capabilities, but you can try it out for thirty days for free, and Katie is currently only using its “free if songs under 60 seconds” option.

Eclipse 2017 in Dubois, Wyoming

Summer Bucket List

A Guest Blog by Jay Davis

Our extended family experienced the Eclipse in the tiny town of Dubois in the Wyoming badlands.

Our observation spot was wide open and stunning. My brother and I enjoyed a pre-eclipse run in the moonscape of the mountains. With totality approaching, we made pinhole viewers and played with the amazing light and shadows. (The cowboy pinhole picture turned out so well in the shadow … the picture doesn’t do it justice.)

An unforgettable experience!

Bike the Prouty – Check

Summer Bucket List

A guest blog by Jay Davis


I’m so proud of Julie and Andrew, who rode his first 35 mile Prouty ride, with the last five miles grinning his way through pouring rain.  The day before, I enjoyed 111 miles of Vermont dirt roads with Scott Nichols, Scott May and Don Powers on The Dirty Project, also contributing to the cancer-fighting fundraiser. A great couple of days!

River Camping on the Connecticut

Summer Bucket List

A guest blog by Jay Davis

Setting off for the river

Bought the longest racks EMS had, filled the car with stuff, and we set off on an epic wilderness advent…. ok, we were actually going for a single night camping trip about four miles from our house. But the weather was great, kids were psyched, and we made sure the car had no room for screens!


The main photo above was from our campsite in the morning. You can see all sorts of wildlife while canoeing the Connecticut River…..
