Vegetable/herb garden, worm bin, and fish tank all rolled into one

‘Go to sleep happy’ music: Friday Sessions

Awhile back, my husband Chris was playing around with a new keyboard on a Friday, trying out various patches, and came up with what he calls ‘Friday Sessions’.

You can listen to samples and/or download Friday Sessions online, or learn more about Chris Taylor here.
