9 Reasons to Learn Yiddish ... by Linsay Does Languages



An quick, interesting video that gives a big of the history of the Yiddish language. I would probably find it really interesting to compare different languages if I were to study Yiddish. Though, the truth is, I'm not likely to study this language in the future because I tend to focus on the languages with the largest numbers of speakers. Saving this link is more wishful thinking than anything else. I may feel differently after I've finally learned Mandarin.

Polyglot Problems: Language Hoarding



I wouldn't say that I find having a lot of links saved as a problem to be dealt with. It might not make the blog interesting to others. But, I find it useful. Over the years, I have saved all kinds of videos on this blog so than I can find them again. I often go back and look at resources that I've saved here. If I never need it again, I can disregard the links.

Create Your Own Chevron Acoustic or Electric Guitar Case via Zazzle

Bands and musicians can personalize these customizable guitar cases via Zazzle with your own logo or custom design. In each sample below, you can change the hot pink background to create whatever effect you want. For instance, choose a bright color to contrast with the black chevron pattern.




Almost any color code will look great in a seamless tile with this white seamless tile pattern.




Here the monotone zigzag pattern creates a two-tone pattern. No matter what color you choose for the background... your pattern will have two shades.




Create your own online store and sell custom guitar case. I've had an online store at Zazzle for many years and find it a great way to earn some extra money. You can try different patterns, or create templates with monograms or personalized text that customers can use to create their own design.
