Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Today we lost the "Queen of the Blues".  Long may she survive in the hearts and minds of those who loved her and her music.  Like the old song says "Heaven must have a hell of a band".

heard this on NPR coming into work this morning. I got a couple of chances to see Koko, one was the Delta Blues Festival back in the 80's, down in Greenville, MS. Man, that lady could flat wail a song. She will be much missed, what a great blues singer, always attracted the best players for her band!
