New Ukulele World Record

851 ukulele players amassed in London's East End on Saturday to set a new world's record for most ukuleles played at once (which is 850 more than what my family would consider sufficient). The old record was 401, established in Stockholm in 2007. But will it remain the record for long? Not if these guys have anything to say about it. (And remember, the old Chicago saying, "uke early, and uke often.")

Hey! Right there in front, with the magnificent beard, is my dear old Uncle Rufus!

He's visited Seattle twice in recent memory and each occasion, like himself, was a delight.
