I understand music does aid plant growth but if I sang, it would put them in an early grave.
I can't carry a tune. It is so bad my husband wouldn't even let me sing in the shower.

I work with the public and am rarely alone. Between phone and customer conversations when I come home to the outdoors I savor the silence. I love to listen to the birds singing, squirrels barking and at dusk the frogs, toads, whippoorwills, crickets, even the coyotes howling Silence here is deafening.

Welcome!

Hi Pod
nice to talk to you,*
Ref you thinking you can't sing !!! my other half thinks just the same as you and ive told her if you listern to people like Joe cocker, "with a little help from my friends "fame" and even Rod Stewart, and if you can imagine how they sound when they sing without all the backing ? Have they really got good voices?

Try listening to irish folk music and the verious singers, and again you'll soon understand it's the song and not the singer, Everyone and anyone can sing if they really want to, just find a song thats made for your range,
I was in the school choir for a few years without singing a chord, (i use to mime) I only joined because at the age of 11 i had my first fancy for a girl who loved singing, anyway we got a new music teacher and she pulled me out of the line_up one afternoon and said i was out of tune and flat, she made the rest continue to sing and when they'd finished she praised them all and said i caused the ill function and i'd have to leave,

D'Oh! "I'd never sang a word, I'd just pretended" Confused

Not only did i loose my first love "even if that girl never had a clue about my feelings for her" but i was the scapegoat for a half deaf music teacher :shrug:

So to hell with those who say you cant sing, just ask yourself who can? And you'll not hear any plants complain or how about starting off by Whistling

Whistling I can do! I think my vocal chords are who can't carry the tune (not me)! Rolling on the floor laughing

My husband loved Irish folk music, now me? I loved Joe Cocker! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I liked your idea about miming, do you think it might help my plants grow? Green Grin!

Hi Pod,
Well i dont think the plants will know if you've got the radio on, but another thought ref who can and cant sing just think of the song titles ie over the hills and far away,!!!

maybe when the writer of that song tried it out on his partner and finshed singing it and then he asked "Well what do you think of it ? How did it sound? and where do you think i should sing such a song?

Hence the titla was changed to "Over the hills and far away" Hilarious!

I listern on my P.C.to live irish pub radio "Dublin" all day long.

Try typing in Irish pub radio dublin , And see if you can get it !!!! The introducers keep saying its a free worldwide program and if you really like irish folk music then this is for you, Van morris, the dubliners and lots of groups you've not heard of.
Im listening to "Will ye go lassie go" by a scottish group called the corries as im sending you this,

perfect couldnt be better, the sun's trying to get through the morning clouds the lawns drying out from the nights dew and a mist is rising up off the lawn to meet the sun's rays and another days about to start,

Walkies first for three of mans best friends and after breakfast its a day in the garden,
Who could ask for more out of the simple life Thumbs up

Have a nice day Pod and let me know it you can get irish pub radio.
