Section 76 re-uploaded. I recorded anew the whole piece where the beeps were. No idea where they came from, perhaps some sort of electric interference... :hmm:

Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

yes it was strange, or maybe the cable was a bit loose. Luckily it was not throughout the section. It's perfectly corrected and now PL ok. Thank you !

Section 38 - Canadian Boat Song

2:28

I think this should probably be slower to match the tempo of men rowing but that might be a bit too slow in this case. Don't laugh too much at my French.

your French was excellent Alan, no reason to laugh at it. And you can even sing it :mrgreen: I loved the tune of the song too, did you invent it ? And I think the tempo is just fine, it's not wild-river-rafting that they are doing here, I hope.

PL ok, thank you

it's cool to read about how big the different states are :shock: a very interesting chapter. Well about the predictions, maybe we would need a Canadian to answer that one.

Thank you so much, Matt, this one is also PL ok.

I feel really sorry for Uncle Malcolm. He's looking out for everyone else, apparently to his own detriment, but who's looking out for him? :hmm:
