[Callers] Callers Digest, Vol 38, Back to Ellen's Green Jig

Another nice variation on Ellen's Green Jig that Graham Hempel here  
in San Diego came up with, is as follows:

A1 Do-si-so neighbor
Women do-si-do
A2 Men do-si-do
Actives swing
B1 (rest is the same) Circle left
Circle right
B2 Duck for the oyster figure, finishing with ones ducking under to next

This is really good for beginners. Balancing and swinging for 12  
counts is sometimes a lot for new people who don't know how to swing  
or balance, so limiting it to just the 8 count swing without a  
balance works out very nicely.
