Hip Hop Handwashing Song

Here’s a fun hand washing song for all ages that will make you smile. 😄 Watch the classic performance from “The Wedding Singer.
Screen shot from “The Wedding Singer”
If you wash your hands through “try to move your feet” and rinse them off, you should be up to 20 seconds.

i said a hip hop the hippie the hippie
to the hip hip hop, a you dont stop 
the rock it to the bang bang boogie 
say up jumped the boogie 
to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat

now what you hear is not a test--i'm rappin to the beat
and me, the groove, and my friends 
are gonna try to move your feet
see i am wonder mike and i like to say hello
to the black, to the white, the red, and the brown,
the purple and yellow
but first i gotta bang bang the boogie to the boogie
say up jump the boogie to the bang bang boogie
let's rock, you dont stop
rock the riddle that will make your body rock
well so far youve heard my voice 
but i brought two friends along 
and next on the mike is my man hank
come on, hank, sing that song

Mountains and Wordsworth

Original Watercolor by Michele Cooper (15x22”)If you follow my instagram or Facebook art page, you have probably already seen this painting and the following quote. I include it here for those who haven't seen it yet.
Mountains can reflect emotional influences, so as to lift the spirit and powerfully affect for good the moral life of humanity. William Wordsworth expressed this in his poem "Tintern Abbey", published in Lyrical Ballads (1798):
Therefore am I still
A lover of the meadows and the woods,
And mountains; and of all the mighty world
Of eye, and ear, well pleased to recognize
In nature and the language of the sense,
The anchor of purest thoughts, the nurse,
The guide, the guardian of my heart, and soul
Of all my moral being.

Watercolor Class Winter/Spring 2020


Wednesday, March 11, night class at Skagit Valley College is cancelled until further notice.

Friday, March 6 Intermediate watercolor class is postponed. King County Health has issued an announcement asking for people 60 and older or anyone with underlying health issues not to go out and so that means many of us. Also anyone who’s pregnant 🧐

I am sending you a link to that announcement and you’ll probably see it on your nightly news tonight. 
Presently, I am not aware of anyone that we are associated with who has this virus. So stay healthy, take care of yourself and I will check with you before class next week.

Session 2 of the Guilded Gallery watercolor class is cancelled. Because of under enrollment due to caution regarding community spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) we are canceling watercolor class previously scheduled for March 5-April 2, 2020. It is hoped that this epidemic will have passed sufficiently to allow class to resume sometime in April. Meanwhile, I trust you and those close to you will stay calm, safe and healthy.
