Music will self destruct in 24 hours ("Little Shepherd" sung by Roger Whittaker). I haven't heard this one before, lovely, reminds me of Annie hence the title and the Candy Cane. Interesting that it was originally a Shepherds crook. ~Pat

Hello Carol, I used to write in HTML in the basic gallery until it was stopped so we upgraded to a premium site where it is legal to write in code.

So that's what I do, convert the music into a swf. file, upload it using a ftp. editor to my own website then link it to here on the comments page.

I delete the music after 24 hours or so. I dabble in web design managing a few websites so like to do this sort of thing. Thanks ~Pat #9126533

DID YOU KNOW? Candy Canes - History: The symbol of the shepherds’ crook is an ancient one, representing the humble shepherds who were the first to worship the newborn Christ. Its counterpart is our candy cane (so old as a symbol that we have nearly forgotten its humble origin).
