Weekend Birthday Song

It's a birthday weekend, and along with Prince Charles, Claude Monet, and Jawaharlal Nehru, the Hackwhackers share a birthday on the 14th with Aaron Copland. Here's the beautiful "Simple Gifts" from his Appalachian Spring, photos by Ansel Adams. (Note: "old timers" may also recognize the portion starting at about 2:25 as the theme for "CBS Reports" -- you know, Edward R. Murrow... "Harvest of Shame"?...when network news divisions had a soul...) Happy Birthday to us all!
