Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Association Summer Institute at Oberlin -
and I hope it's going singingly, if not swimmingly. :) How is it going, and how are you? How did the travel go? Here's Pete Seeger talking about singing Gospel before singing "Down By The Riverside Pete Seeger 7 24 1963" - https://youtu.be/bYe-bLaqhhY - (a good Quaker song as well).

Medical appointment 'annual prevention physical' - which Dr. d, who went to Stanford as undergrad (whom I met for first time and liked) prefers to call an 'annual review' went well. I weigh 183.8 pounds light! with a blood pressure of 100/63 - both excellent from my perspective. My diet of the past 4 weeks or so is showing results - an additional low carbohydrates, low salt diet with increased movement. They took blood fro lab work, which I should hear about soon re further preventive knowledge. Good veggie diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, but far fewer grains these days, plus an egg and multi-vitamin a day (for b12 and iron).
In Monday, July 8th's World Univ & Sch Live Hangout on Air -
"World Univ & Sch Live Hangout - News and Updates - Stanford Affiliation further?" ...
... I talked much about affiliating further with Stanford -
2) Law, both in ~200 countries' official languages -
3) California BPPE licensing for Bachelor and Ph.D., and
4) Handshake platform (affiliations potentially with greatest universities in US) for hiring interns/ externs, but am not sure entirely what the next steps for this are. Stanford CDH meeting this Thursday at 4 -
"CDH Workshop: MyHeart Counts- How Mobile Apps Expand Research Possibilities"
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cdh-workshop-myheart-counts-how-mobile-apps-expand-research-possibilities-tickets-63447019744 (and where Stanford Chair of Medicine is also the CDH's Director).
Recording all of the tunes The College of Piping's Green Tutor vol 1 as a kind of Tune Tutorial on the D chanter of the Scottish Small Pipes is happening, and I'll follow suit with the CoP Blue Tutor Vol 3, and possibly the Golden CoP Piobaireachd Tutor Vol 4, too.
Haven't heard back from the National Piping Centre's Roddy MacLeod or Finlay MacDonald yet about lessons - re even to approaches to producing my upcoming "Honey in the Bag" Scottish Small Pipes' CD (potentially with blockchain, and Google Bach Doodle AI for writing harmonies). I wrote too Lorne MacDougall about this, but also haven't heard back from him. Am in waiting mode.
On with A) writing my next book of poetry, B) further Scottish Small Pipes in D (then in B flat too) recordings - both here and on Cuttyhunk - and C) World Univ & Sch development. T seems promising, but would like still to connect with a MD too.
Ancestry.com which I just got into - with Mark MacLeod's encouragement - and will send DNA into soon, is blowing my mind - and will update this soon http://scottmacleod.com/ScottMacLeodFamilyHistory.htm. Will show you Ancestry.com on Cuttyhunk, Ma!
Are you growing vocal community fulsomely? Sounds like a fun week of singing!
Ancestry.com is "also a whole new approach to history itself in an amazing way," - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/07/aurorae-boreraig-isle-of-skye-scotland.html - with more about conversation with Mark MacLeod here!

Aurorae: Boreraig, Isle of Skye, Scotland, this cairn to the MacCrimmon pipers, hereditary bagpipers to the Clan MacLeod, but I don't recall (from the 1970s) this particular event of John MacFadyen piping, Musings about the latent, very latent, Scottish IDENTITY I think I learned, and with regards to this web pages' pictures - http://www.clan-macleod-scotland.org.uk/clan-history * * * A kind of a latent MacLEOD identification seemed to happen in our family from when I was 10 or 11 or so at least, I think Dad, with his very Scottish name, Gordon Kenneth MacLeod MD (my name too - Gordon Kenneth MacLeod III, where my nickname is Scott ... and that Dad ... until he became a medical doctor), MacLeod family history emails with my cousin Mark MacLeod, Genealogy and DNA - "I hope that with enough MacLeod DNA we might be able to reduce the uncertainty on where James Edward McLeod was born" - before he arrived on Prince Edward Island in the 1850s, (Ancestry.com related pages/links here - http://scottmacleod.com/family.htm) * * * Having recorded all of the bagpiping tunes in the College of Piping's Green Tutor Vol. 1 on the Scottish Small Pipes on an A chanter, and appreciating how this goal of recording so that others learning the SSP in A could learn with a Tutor (by playing with eventually), I think I'm now going to try to record as many tunes from the CoP Green Tutor Vol. 1 as possible that work on the Scottish Small Pipes on a D chanter - and soon on B flat chanter, which is coming in the mail, Just began a Scott Gordon Kenneth MacLeod family tree in WikiTree - https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/MacLeod-2524 ~- https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/07/aurorae-boreraig-isle-of-skye-scotland.html -
