The drought has broken BUT.....

Where I live we have had a drought for so long that I have managed quite nicely for the last 17 years (and 8 since I had kids) without a clothes dryer.

What's Up

Hey everyone, I'm El Llama, more commonly known as Jake, so call me what you want :D. I like ska, but I'm not an expert, so please be nice to the newbie. I am hoping to expand my "ska ear", so to speak, and discover bands I haven't listened to before. I play the guitar, the saxophone, and clarinet. Until later, see ya!!

Jake, El Llama, whatever....
