Hi to all, my dear sisters and brothers!

Morning ZZ and everyone

Cold and dreary here today, but only on the outside.
Spring is taking a while to get in gear
so while I wait..........
I listen to Dickey Betts play some Dead tunes


Purple69 - 3/31/2004 at 05:16 PM

Saturday is the day of the Maple Syrup Festival in this area...beautiful weather for all the visitors...the sap is flowing, the pancakes will be cooking, my husband will be playing banjo and the sun will be shining on all.


ZekovicZoran - 4/1/2004 at 08:26 AM

Good morning, sweet sisters and brothers!
Sunnnnny morning! In Memory of ER (Atlanta 8.8.03) is on now.


Purple69 - 4/1/2004 at 01:04 PM

origapch - 4/2/2004 at 01:10 PM

OK it's cooler today. Low of 52 and high today is going to be 73. I think I'll go out turn some music on and clean up the bike and hit the road for a ride on the longest country backroads I can find today. Since we only have about a week of spring before it becomes summer I've got to take advantage of it while I can.

No sun here, just gray and drizzle this morning, but clearing up now.
The sun was trying to break through, but evening is settling in
so looks like we'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Cool and gray. Sun still trying to show its face, it's a tough struggle today,
clouds, sun, clouds, sun, seems like the clouds are winning right now.

I'm routing for the sun, need some of those warm rays.....


CanPeach - 4/4/2004 at 06:40 PM

Same for me, LW...we even got snow two nights ago...

The sun is shining right now, but it feels like a crisp, sunny, winter day...not spring.


ZekovicZoran - 4/6/2004 at 07:00 AM

Rainy day! Temperature 3 C. But, ABB makes nice weather!


Purple69 - 4/6/2004 at 02:03 PM

Hi my dear sisters and brothers

Pretty much the same as yesterday...cold and windy, with sun and clouds--a "Simpsons" sky.


Sunbeam and bird song wishes to all!


Purple69 - 4/11/2004 at 08:28 PM

I've been too busy to visit with my friends here.

Congratulations on your 2000 peaches, Purple! And thanks for sharing your success with us.

By the way...it is SNOWING outside right now!!

Bad weather. Rain didn't stop 6 days. Only 6 C. Where is the sun?


origapch - 4/14/2004 at 05:37 PM

The best of the day is here now 68 degrees and very windy. The rain has finally stopped.


ladymule - 4/15/2004 at 03:55 AM

Yes, LW, we got snow, about one inch! The snow is gone now, but it's still cold!

Zoran, the sun has been on my side of the pond ...sorry to hear about all that rain...hope the sun comes out for you soon.

origapch, you seem to be getting lovely temperatures...can you send some of that heat up to Canada?!


Hope all are well...what happened to Purple? Maybe he is busy practicing guitar.


ZekovicZoran - 4/15/2004 at 08:22 AM

1 inch = 2.54 cm of snow?

Hi, sisters and brothers,
it`s lovely weather outside
real spring
i do feel sorry bout the snow in Canada, ladymule, will send you some good spirits to blow it away


origapch - 4/15/2004 at 06:30 PM

Ok, Just to spread the cheer its 72 and blue skys over head. A tad bit cool for mid April in Tampa. This is one of those perfect days we wait all year for.


floyd - 4/15/2004 at 07:32 PM

Out here on the plains, in Overland Park,Kansas, it is very windy and a nice 72 degrees. We have a lot of windy days out here, although the spring days are some of the more pleasant. My dad used to say, "Everyone talks all the time about the weather, but no one can do a darned thing about it." He also said that the two things a weatherperson knows for sure at any one time is the current temperature and the current time.

The Allman Brothers play at Sandstone Ampitheater when they are here - it's an outdoor complex. Now it is called Verizon Ampitheatre. Verizon Ampitheater is in Bonner Springs, a western suburb of the Kansas City Metro area. I miss the beach!!!!!

Peace Y'all..........

I love it too, brother Dave. And I enjoy the yard detail--so far, I've picked up branches, sticks, pine cones, garbage and dug up the thistles.

I hope your nose clears up soon...do you have allergies?

By the way, we got the big wind here too...I was concerned about the big pine tree beside the house, falling ON the house or the cars. That was a mighty wind!!

Sure thing LM

I love them too, so bright and cheery...funny thing about mine is that
they keep coming up in different places each year.....???? I'm not exactly
sure why that happens, but I think some of the animals dig them up
to eat them, (some of the animals eat the bulbs)
then they pop up somewhere else the following year....
I'd like it if the patches got bigger each year too,

Anyway, it's another spectacular day out here in Kansas, and my Golden Retriever is just so glad to be alive.

Peace Y'all..........


ladymule - 4/29/2004 at 03:37 AM

floyd, indeed I am Canadian...an hour and a half west of Toronto

It sounds like you've been getting some nice weather in Kansas. We got another cold day here. If it reaches 25 C here tomorrow, I'll........be as happy as a Golden Retriever!

Peace to you, too....


Purple69 - 4/29/2004 at 07:30 AM

yeah, Ladymule, it`s shirt-weather right now, almost got to sweat under the sun......so that`s why you haven`t beeen around here for a while ( sbow and storm ) - hope you get shirt-weather soon too....


floyd - 4/29/2004 at 07:31 PM

Ladymule, good phrase that "Happy as a Golden Retriever." I have a six month old Golden, and they are too happy! Sounds like where you are in Canada is nice country. I've been to Calgary and Edmunton, but not to the eastern side of Canada. Y'all have a nice country uo there.

Peace Y'all..........

Finally, back in Florida after being away for 2 weeks. When I left in Mid April it was 84 here in Florida. I traveled to cold weather in Chicago, a day of snow in Detroit, rain in NYC for 3 days and finally beautiful sunshine and warmer weather the past few days in the Carolina mountains. Next week its off to New England where I hope spring has arrived.
Todays forcast in Tampa looks like a low of 70 and high of 85 with rain mixed in somewhere.


Purple69 - 4/30/2004 at 03:27 PM

A beautiful sunny day to all my sisters and brothers out there. Here in Kansas City, we have fifties and light rain, a perfect evening to put six Allman Brothers CDs in the machine and mellow out. Where is that 20 degrees coming from, somewhere in Europe?


Peace Y'all


ladymule - 5/1/2004 at 03:26 AM

floyd, thanks very much for the kind words about my "home and native land"! I've seen a little of the beautiful, U.S. landscape. When I was 14, my parents took me down part of the California coast and I have been to the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania because I have relatives there.

Ontario is very beautiful with lots of lakes to swim in.


The temperature has been in the 20s C for the last two days. Naturally, I'm as happy as a six month old Golden!


Warm, weekend wishes to all my friends here.

Purple69 - 5/3/2004 at 09:16 AM

but now it`s sunny and warm again
sunbeams to you all

Sure could use those sunbeams here Purple...
Nothing but gray, rain and cold outside this window


ladymule - 5/3/2004 at 06:48 PM

It's only 6 C {40 F} and overcast...not very pleasant...however, the tulips and daffodils are in bloom and the maple and cherry trees are sprouting leaves. Unfortunately, the grass needs to be mowed.


Purple69 - 5/4/2004 at 09:53 AM

hi, sisters and brothers.......spring...almost as usual


petri - 5/4/2004 at 04:13 PM

Hi everybody,

The spring has arrived here in Finland, yesterday it was around 20 degrees Celcius and for tomorrow they have promised around 23-25 C and sunshine. Can you dig it? In Finland! And crocuses are blooming...

Purple69 - or anyone else, have you watched any ice hockey world championship games? Finland is going quite strong...

floyd - 5/4/2004 at 10:41 PM

Here in Kansas, we have rain, a bit of wind, and last night we were in the mid thirties. It is really cool living out here on the prairies, except for those darn tornadoes. The grass really needs mowing here too, and we are supposed to have another hot summer.

It's all good!!!

Peace Y'all..........

Thanks! Whaddaya mean, you didn´t watch them on TV? Finland is going to meet Canada tomorrow... Tough game...

Ladymule, sun will eventually shine on Ontario... Ontario sounds a lot like Finland, I mean lot of lakes. By the way, my father has a female cousin who lives near Toronto with her family. My parents visited them a few years ago and brought a lot of photos with them from that journey.


ladymule - 5/6/2004 at 01:58 AM

petri, thanks for the sunshine wishes...although it was cool again today, I did get some of that "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" sun today!

I don't know anyone from Finland. I did become friends with two guys { Harco and Frank} from Holland who were over here working for their computer company. They were big music fans so we took them to Toronto to see Jazz is Dead. Needless to say, a great time was had by all!

Good luck in the hockey tournament. It's too bad we both can't be winners. Please let me know how the game turned out.


petri - 5/6/2004 at 12:59 PM

You have a good weekend too!

I hope the rain has stopped for you. We had extremely warm air and sun today. I was in shorts and sandals for the first time this year. It's dark now and raining really hard. It feels like a rainy summer eve.

ZekovicZoran - 5/17/2004 at 07:57 AM

Dear sisterd and brothers,
weather report from Swiss for the last week (I was in Geneve): hot and suny (and everything other things are great in Swiss). Here is not so worm (only 9 C), but now is 10:00 AM and I hope it will be better. Our song, from Serbia&Montenegro, at the festival Eurosong in Instanbul was 2nd (Great!), but that music (something like pop) is not for me.
Best wishes to all of you!

And the weather report for Kansas City and surrounding areas is cool and rainy. At 12:45, we are cool, with no rain, although more is on its way. It is cool to hear about weather from Switzerlad, and Europe. That is one beautiful country. What about it, y'all, how's the weather where you're at?


Peace Y'all

Here in the north, on the east coast, it's gray, foggy and humid.
Was cold and drizzly earlier, now it's still just plain lousy.
Neither hot nor cold
just uncomfortable

Ok you southerners and left coasters, give up some of that sunshine!

warm air, a little bit of wind

barbecue weather for tomorrow.......


origapch - 5/19/2004 at 12:27 PM

Finally back in Florida heat after a week of sunshine with in the Carolinas. I have seen Spring several times this year in my travels. It was late February here in Florida, late March in Atlanta, late April in Detroit, Chicago and New York and finally May for New England. As one who suffers from allergies it has been quite a year of sneezing so far. I hope Spring has arrived in Toronto when I go up next week.
Back on the positive side I rode my bike up to NC on the 10th and spent a week riding thru the mountains of NC, SC and GA. This is always an experience like no other to see the beauty of the mountains mixed with springtime.


floyd - 5/19/2004 at 06:35 PM

Here in Kansas City we have had big rain storms overnight, to the tune of four inches per hour in some places. We have the emergency crews bringing people out of their flooded houses, and for a minute, I thought I was back in my native Houston after a hurricane hit. A news crew got trapped in rising stream waters, so they just stayed put and did those live cut ins. Today, it is sunny, and tomorrow, the forecasters say it will reach 90 degrees. That's early for us for that kind of heat.

Here in the midwest, the weather changes so much that I almost feel sorry for the weather forecasters.

Peace Y'all..........

Hi Purple...thanks very much for your concern.

The weekend was pretty hellish around here. Lots of rain, thunder, lightning, and wind. There were two tornado touchdowns in the area on Saturday night and one smaller tornado that touched down yesterday morning about ten minutes from where I live. There were no injuries, only property damage.

We did see the sun in the late afternoon today!

Hey Purple, it sounds like you need some cheering up, so I'm sending you some {{{{{{good vibes}}}}}}.

We've had some fairly nice weather the last couple of days. A little rain, some sun, a mix of blue and cloudy skies and slightly cool temperatures. So, we had our first bonfire of the season in our backyard last night. It was beautiful...a lovely warm fire with a clear, star and half-moon filled sky. Some trees were dark silhouettes, while others reflected the fire's light. We listened to Chet Baker, Cream, Pink Floyd and of course, the ABB.


ZekovicZoran - 5/28/2004 at 06:30 AM

Latest enviro news:

--ordered and will receive central A/C on June 8


Also, just got tickets to see J.J. Cale on Sun. June 27 and Little Feat on Tues. June 22 in Toronto. Now, I don't feel quite so deprived.

What concert plans do y'all have for this summer?


ZekovicZoran - 6/4/2004 at 07:46 AM

Here is a rain, rain and again rain (what about worm spring?). It will be better, I hope so, because 15th June is a day of Metallica concert in Belgrade at footbal stadion (there will be about 40,000 of people!!!). I don't like that band so much, but... (I am waiting, you know what... ABB in Europe!).
Best wishes to all of you, my dear sisters and brothers (that is really magic: "Brothers and Sisters" LP, "Come and Go Blues" is on right now).

Hi Colin, nice to see a fresh face here too


harvey - 6/4/2004 at 11:16 PM

Hi Purple, thanks for the welcome, I was just trawling around the site trying to bring some sunshine and this seemed like the ideal place, by the way, why do you have my photograph as your avatar ?


dutchoneill - 6/4/2004 at 11:54 PM

Ok, this is my first post...I have been a fan (on and off) since '69. I must say I lost interest over the years with some of the lineups, but I am back on board big time with this crew. Saw them last summer at PNC in NJ.WOW!!! Going back in August. First saw them closing weekend at the Fillmore, then a few months later (probably one of Duane's last shows) at the central Theater in Passic, NJ.
Glad to be a part of this family.


Enzo - 6/5/2004 at 02:16 AM

Welcome aboard to the greatest ABB family, bro Dutch!
Nice to see new, old faces in the family!
Hi to all of you, dear sisters and brothers!


ladymule - 6/9/2004 at 02:06 AM

Welcome to Colin and Dutch , and Hi to all my brother and sister friends!!

Purple, you have cool weather? That spells "relief" to me. Including the humidex, it was 38 C or 100 F here today! I hope it warms up for you...

Zoran, have a great time and please tell us all about the Metallica show!


ZekovicZoran - 6/9/2004 at 09:05 AM

Dear sister ladymule, first of all, thank you. I am not so creazy about Metallica, but, I think that will be a good show. The report will be here at 16th of June.
Hi to all of you, dear sisters and brothers.

floyd - 6/9/2004 at 01:56 PM

Yeah, welcome to all our new members, the more the merrier. I saw a documentary type program on Metallica, and although I am not really familiar with their work, it was very interesting. Kirk Hammit was a student of Joe Satriani at one time - wow, what a greta teacher. Anyhow, Metalicca has overcome some tradegies in their time also.


Peace Y'all..........

Oh, it's hot here today.....97 and steamy...with no releif in sight


harvey - 6/9/2004 at 08:02 PM

Stormy Wednesday night here, lets hope it clears the air because I am off to the coast at the weekend.

I was in Sydney earlier this year and Metallica were headlining a weekend event. I didn't go to the show - not really my thing and couldn't get tickets even if it was - but I couldn't help feeling I was in a time warp later that night when all the fans turned up after the show in the bar where I was drinking - late teens, early 20's, dressed and looking just like Deep Purple fans of the 70's. Oh where have those days gone when I used to look just like my avatar (that Purple is sharing with me) ?

Well, my friend, i don`t look like Che, i ain`t that extreme but i love Deep Purple and the hair is still long, that`s the reason for this avatar....and Metallica ? my boy loves em, he`s 17 and is going to see them tomorrow on a big festival here in Austria,
peace


harvey - 6/9/2004 at 09:06 PM

Yeah, I like Deep Purple too, it was great to see Roger Glover get up on the stage with Mule on their Deepest End DVD. Hope your boy enjoys the show.

Regards, Colin.


ladymule - 6/10/2004 at 03:33 AM

Hey Erik, thanks for the lovely compliment!

We had another hot and humid one today but cooler air is supposed to move in tomorrow.

Cheers y'all!!


ZekovicZoran - 6/10/2004 at 09:39 AM

As a University professor I can write only this:

Allman Brothers Band 10
Deep Purple 8
Metallica 7

The best mark is, of course, 10.

Hi to all of you, dear sisters and brothers!


floyd - 6/10/2004 at 09:29 PM

Yeah LyricWriter, I do have a new avatar, thanks for noticing! The question is, who really looks like their avatar? Do you look like yours? It is something to ponder alright. Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner, but I've been busy lately.

The weather here is rainy, but very welcome. Kansas City has been behind in rainfall.

I don't listen to, or follow Matalicca, but I know they have two really good guitarists. It seems to me that these guys have been around for a long time, and they really work hard on their music.


Peace Y'all..........


lyricwriter - 6/10/2004 at 10:27 PM

It is a question to ponder floyd....

Do I look like mine? Well, maybe a little, I've got the curls, but their just black, not black and orange ha ha
She was the closest I could find. I suppose I'd be a cross between this one and ladymule's. How about you, do you look like that guy?

Weather here has cooled off this evening and a light rain shower is beginning. Supposed to get some more heat tomorrow.


harvey - 6/10/2004 at 11:09 PM

The reason I chose my avatar is because I used to have a picture of me on my student union card where I looked the spitting image of Che, just like the avatar. Unfortunately that was 30 years ago and now I have short grey hair and look more like Steve McQueen in Papillon.

[Edited on 6/10/2004 by harvey]


ladymule - 6/11/2004 at 05:03 PM

Colin, I think Steve McQueen is a rather attractive man!

'Tis a beautiful day...sun, blue sky, and cool, dry air.

Well, if I'm not likely to see my favourite band of all time this summer {ABB, of course}, I'll see my second favourite: THE DOORS. I've passed on the tour before--no Jim Morrison or John Densmore, forget it--but I've warmed up to the idea over time. Hey, I'll get to hear Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, some of my all-time favourite songs and hopefully, some smokin' jamming! Anyway, to make a short story shorter...today, we scored front row center tickets to see THE DOORS Tues. August 3, in Toronto at the Molson Amphitheatre!

Has anyone seen either the original or reformed DOORS? Is anyone planning to see them this summer? I know the original band played in Europe as well as Canada and the U.S., but I'm not sure about the current band's touring schedule.


Enzo - 6/12/2004 at 02:36 AM

LadyM,,,,,,, did you folks ever get that a/c installed yet??


ladymule - 6/12/2004 at 05:13 PM

Hey Dave, thanks for asking. Yes, we had the A/C installed this past Tuesday {2 ton Carrier 38TKB}, just in time for two days of oppressive heat and humidity. I notice on the Snow thread that you set the night temperature at 65 F. Is this because you like it very cool when you sleep or is there another reason? Also, I'm wondering if you can give me some advice. I'd like to get more cool air upstairs because it is too warm. Should I close some of the vents on the main floor or do I have to go to the basement and adjust the levers on the air pipes? For heat, I have all the vents wide open and the levers set so more warm air goes to the main floor. This works well in the winter. I'm hoping I can just close some vents on the main floor, but if I have to go adjusting levers I guess I will. I would appreciate it if you could pass along to me anything else I should know. Thanks very much for your help, Dave!

Another gorgeous day today...

Hey Kim,
i`ll see the Doors on July 18, in Wiesen, a really lovely festival site. Unfortunately i couldn`t see Jim as i was a little boy when he passed but i think his ghost will be on stage
peace and a lovely weekend to you

Hi Colin,
yeah, the Deepest End DVD is a gas, i love it a lot. I just fetched my boy and his friends and....they were blown away by Metallica, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Motorhead....but on the way home we listened to....Beacon 04 and a Purple show of the nineties...i`m happy he likes all that music, gives hope to me that this planet is not lost,
a peaceful day to you,

Ladym ,,, ok ... with the outside air temps at 95* during the day it's best to keep my thermostat set at 73-74 degrees ..... I like it 65-66 degrees at night ,,, I freeze my family out ,,but we have plenty of blankets and currently my wife is experincing hot flashes which in turn heats up the bed ( I like her body heat during the winter ,,,lol) Soooooo,, 65-66 at night isn't so bad after all! Now it takes 400cfm of air flow to make 1 ton of a/c which would take care of a 400 square foot room ,, therefore a 2 ton unit will only cool a 800 square foot home .... Question ,,, how big is your home and was a cooling load calculation done by the installing contractor?? You might have to close the vents downstairs and maybe think of installing ceiling fans or buy a pedistal floor fan for your upstairs comfort ..... Another question ,,, what is the cfm rating on the fan coil unit( the blower unit ) ?

Hey Erik, that is great news. Have a wonderful time! Could you post sometime after the show and give me a sense of what to expect when I see them in August? I will be interested in your opinion of the show.

I was a girl {nine years old} when Jim passed so I too was unable to see him perform. Maybe I'll catch a glimpse of his ghost at the show--I'll keep my eyes, ears and heart open.

I hope you are having a lovely and peaceful weekend too...

[Edited on 6/13/2004 by Enzo]


Hey Dave, thanks for your help!

I don't know the square footage of the house but it is not particularly large.The contractor said that a 1.5 ton would work but might stress the system a little, so for an extra $100.00 dollars we should get the 2 ton. He did not do a formal cooling load calculation although he was in the house and knew we had a lot of new windows and a new front door.

I could not find the cfm rating on the fan coil unit. There is no rating given in the literature assembly booklet for the installer and the owner {that I could see, anyway}. I did go outside and note the information about the fan motor located on the Unit Rating Plate:

Fan Motor 208/230 Volts AC
1------------PH---------60----HZ
1/12--------HP--------.50----FLA

I don't know if the above is useful information or not but it seems to be the only info I have on the fan motor.

Regarding closing the registers on the main floor, they say in the booklet that "supply-air and return-air registers should not be blocked [because] restricted airflow lessens the unit's efficiency and life span". Do you close any main floor registers?

We do have a pedestal floor fan as well as other fans and we did use them upstairs for those two hot days when we had the A/C on.

Thanks again for your help Dave and feel free to call me Kim, if you like. I'll answer to both Kim and ladym.


Enzo - 6/14/2004 at 03:25 PM

Hi Kim ,,, Well as you know heat rises therefore the upstairs would require more a/c .... What do you set your thermostat to during the evening hours ?? It's a fact ,, never block or restrict any return air grilles ,,, however with supplies you could adjust ( not completely shut down )) the damper in the room/rooms that are not being occupied ((bathroom etc-))....If the contractor used the exsisting ductwork and did not re-duct to determine the proper cfm per room then there will be hot spots.

I am so happy! It's a suny day in Novi Sad (16 C now). Today is the day - Metallica in Belgrade (Belgrade is only 90 km far away from Novi Sad). Tomorrow I'll write some impresions here.
Hi to all og you, dear sisters and brothers!

Hope you enjoyed the show Zoran - lovely blue sky sunny days all over Europe today.


ZekovicZoran - 6/16/2004 at 07:43 AM

You are right, Harvey! Yesterday night was a great. Nice weather, lot of people (more than 40,000), 2.5 hours of music. Metallica did its job quite good. I can say very profesional for that hard work. It is not really my kind of music, but it was a great show.
Now, I am waiting for my kind of music (of course, ABB) somewhere in Europe.
Bro Zoran from Novi Sad, Serbia&Montenegro, Europe


Purple69 - 6/16/2004 at 09:58 AM

Hi Zoran,
you`re right about Metallica and the waiting thing
what about Wiesen on July 18 ? You wanna see The Doors, John Mayall and Colloseum ?
peace to you


ZekovicZoran - 6/16/2004 at 11:19 AM

Dear 69,
It is nice (for me) to see John Mayall (I love that gay) , but Doors without JM, I don't know!
Peace to you, dear bro Purple (yesterday, in car, before Metallica, we had really good music, and, of course, Deep Purple)


floyd - 6/16/2004 at 06:58 PM

I think that the Doors without Jim Morrison are not the doors. The remaining three should stay together, but call their band something else. They are all gifted musicians, and could really shine in a new format.

After all I have read, I would like to see Metallica. Sounds like a great show.

Peace Y'all..........

Hey Dave, thanks for the helpful advice. I guess I'll experiment with adjusting some of the return air dampers on the main floor.

The thermostat is a digital, non-programmable Carrier. For the two nights we needed the air on, I kept the temperature set at 74 F {the same as the daytime temperature}.

Hope you are well and enjoying the pool! See ya Dave...

Hey Zoran, I'm glad to hear you were so happy and enjoyed the show!

I think you should go to the festival that Erik is going to. You do love John Mayall and who knows, you might also enjoy the Doors. Best of all though, you could finally meet your Austrian bro!!


ZekovicZoran - 6/17/2004 at 08:08 AM

Dear ladymule, first of all HI! Your reason to meet my dear austrian bro is quite good. I'll be in Wien for few days (I think 5 or 6 days) from 26th June, and we could see each other. That is, of course, a message for my dear bro Purple69. Hi, 69!!!
Hi to you, dear bro Floyd (first name Pink or...???). I am glad to see your nice message about the Doors without JM!


floyd - 6/17/2004 at 07:02 PM

Well hi to you, Zecovic Zoran. There is no Pink in fronyt of Floyd, although many have said that there should be. I'm glad to see you agree with the post about The Doors without JM.

I hope that your trip goes well.

Floyd, you`re absolutely right about the Doors but anyway....i think it`s ok two see two original members alive and kicking ( what about ABB, there are three original members lleft i think )......and for more this is one of the loveliest austrian Rock festivals, in beautiful countryside.....the tix are rather cheap - 40 bucks for five bands ( John Mayall, Gary Moore, Colosseum and TThe Doors plus support ).....


lyricwriter - 6/18/2004 at 03:48 PM

Well, I have no musical news to report as I haven't been to a show in a few weeks, but may be going to Little Feat next week, if I can. Then a couple of Dead shows later this summer. Can't wait for those as I also get to see one of my favorite guitar men, WH up on the stage.

But for now, the weather is warm and muggy, switching on and off from sunshine to thunder storms, reminds me a little of out west...

BTW, I heard through the grapevine that the guy singing with the Doors is a dead ringer for Morrison, looks like him, sounds like him, has similar mannerisms, etc. They say he is pretty good, but its like he's trying to hard to be Jim, he should try to be more like himself and create a new Doors instead of trying to revive the old one. I don't know for sure since I haven't seen them myself, it's just what I hear from those who have seen.
Peace and sunshine to all

In addition to the ABB, Gov't Mule, The Stones, Skynyrd, The Dead, The Beach Boys, The Band, Van Halen, Chicago, The Blues Brothers, The Eagles, Pink Floyd and The Who have all lost members {including writers and lead singers} and have continued to perform with their original name. I don't see any difference between these bands and The Doors. Also, The Doors music was written by all The Doors {except for one album-The Soft Parade}, therefore they have the right to play their music as "The Doors".


harvey - 6/18/2004 at 11:27 PM

Yeah LadyM, too many people get to possessive over their memories of what bands were. We should all be grateful that there are sufficient members left of our favourite bands from 30 years ago who still have the appetite to perform the songs we loved and thank the new people who have a kindred spirit and are prepared to give it a go and replace our dearly departed bretheren - even though they know they are on a loser from the start because they will inevitably be compared to the original artists by fans with jaundiced eyes. Don't judge or compare, just be thankful for the live music scene that is there for you and go and enjoy it.

Zoran, hope you have a great trip to Austria and get to meet up with Purple69, I made the pilgrimage to the Beacon this year and really enjoyed meeting up with people from this site there almost as much as seeing ABB - I said ALMOST !!!

Regards, Colin.


Purple69 - 6/19/2004 at 03:53 PM

It`s a warm and moisterous day here with some distant thunder ( wasn`t that the title of a Little Feat song ? ), there`s music in my head, the world`s spinning and....it`s allright
It`s all Yin and Yang and Yiang at the same time
peace


lyricwriter - 6/19/2004 at 05:06 PM

Yes, it's called "A Distant Thunder"

"a distant thunder and it takes my breath away
tumblin' in a whirlwind pullin' clouds from the sky
pressure is a pyramid in a scream that no one hears
a thousand lifetimes couldn't cover my tears
oh cover my tears

measured distance through the heartbeats
measured time holds all my beliefs
these shotgun visions are all I've ever lived with..."

etc...etc...





ZekovicZoran - 6/21/2004 at 07:53 AM

Hi to all and thanks! It is nice to be in EU (you don't need any thing like a visa and passport; it is hard a job to get these all papers) , but my country is far away from EU (I said (joke): Swiss and my country - Serbia&Montenegro will never be in EU! ). It is a stupied thing that I can get USA visa for a few hours and for Austria (to be there only ONE week) need ONE week). I hope this will be better in the future.
Temperature in Novi Sad 17 C now and sunnnny day!!!!!

Because of you, dear Purple69 and Lyricwriter, I'll put on some Little Feat (I didn't like that band so much, to soft music for me). I like more strong (and funy) bands like Black Oak Arkansas (what you think about BOA?)

First of all, Zoran, Black Oak is fine......have one or two shows, fine swamp feel
Second
we got summer
and it`s a hot day here


petri - 6/22/2004 at 03:38 PM

Well hello everybody,

It´s been awhile since I´ve been here but I have been quite busy with my work (euch! ) and family things , two little kids take up your free time quite well...

The weather here in Finland has been quite chilly and rainy for a few weeks now except that today it´s sunny. I hope that July will bring more warmth and sunshine along... That´s when I will have my summer vacation...

Good vibes to everybody.

Oh, and Little Feat is a great band.


ladymule - 6/22/2004 at 05:09 PM

Hi everybody!

Well, I'm off to Hamilton, Ontario in a few hours to see Little Feat for the first time. I thought I was going to Toronto to see them because I didn't order the tickets and then made a faulty assumption { }, but Hamilton is better because it is closer to where I live than Toronto. I'm not the biggest Feat fan in the family {I know some of the early music with Lowell George but not the newest} so, to a large extent I'm entering into unknown aural territory. Who knows, after this concert I might end up a bigger Feat fan. The first time I saw the Mule I was unfamiliar with the music and look what happened to me after I saw that show!!

LW, are you seeing the Feat this week?

Sandy just put "Hoy-Hoy!" on the turntable {ya, we still have and use my 26 year old Dual 604 turntable!}. Does anyone still use his or her turntable, in addition to the cd player?

lyricwriter - 6/22/2004 at 05:41 PM

Hey LM,

Yea, I'm going on the 25th. I expect a great time, as they have never disappointed. You will like them when you see them, even though L.G. isn't there anymore (I never saw them with him) they are still a great show. Lots of energy on the stage and fine musicians. I think you'll like the bass player, you play bass right? Whenever I've seen him he is very animated and interacts with the audience in a very friendly manner. He talks, smiles, waves and shakes hands with folks intermittently throughout the show. Very nice touch. They are a great live band, vocally and instrumentally, IMO and you certainly get your money's worth.

Now I hope they are as good as I've made them out to be!
Enjoy and let us know how you liked it.

Yeah LM, every once in while I dust off the old turntable. Sometimes its nice to pull one of those old albums out of the cover and give it a spin, especially the ones I've never had the opportunity to replace on CD!

Because of you, dear Purple69 and Lyricwriter, I'll put on some Little Feat (I didn't like that band so much, to soft music for me). I like more strong (and funy) bands like Black Oak Arkansas (what you think about BOA?)
Hi to all of you, dear sisters and brothers!


Hey ZZ!
Do you have "Waiting for Columbus"? Probably the best LF album there is IMO. "Dixie Chicken" is also a good one. Listen to those and you'll like the Feat just fine

I haven't heard too much BOA, but what little I've heard I've liked. Have to hear a bit more to make a more substantial judgement.


origapch - 6/22/2004 at 10:34 PM

Still using my SL- D202 Technics. I still have quite a few albums I have not converted yet. Yes, Lowell was incredible. We saw him with the band our 1st couple of shows in Atlanta. The song "Voices In The Wind" from Let It Roll is very haunting but a great tribute. Bill Payne and the rest have done an incredible job of keeping the band together thru the years against the odds. Their latest CD shows that they can still write and record music with the best. Waiting For Columbus was always one of our pre concert favorite albums no matter who we were going to see. It always gets you in the mood.
I'm looking forward to seeing them play with the ABB in Virginia.

Yeah, I also have a Dual turntable (I think mine was 605) myself and use it all the time, I buy vinyls a lot. Has served me 24 years and still going strong, just have to change the stylus once a year.

Ladymule, did you enjoy Little Feat? The core of the band has been the same for some 30+ years now, incredible isn´t it? Just like the Allmans... but there the closer similarities end IMO. Little Feat is more syncopated music, more "New Orleans", more funk... I love both the Brothers and Feat (maybe Bothers a bit more).


ZekovicZoran - 6/23/2004 at 07:52 AM

...(maybe Bothers a bit more).

ladymule - 6/23/2004 at 11:26 PM

Thanks to everyone for your insights and good wishes! I did have a great time last night. The pre-show "party" at the club was lots of fun. We ran into some friends from our neck of the woods and met a few ABB fans too. The place was packed {approx. 800 people??} and everyone was psyched. Andy Frost from Toronto's Q107--he hosts the "Psychedelic Sunday" radio show--introduced the band. So Andy is walking through the crowd and because I've got ABB "on the brain", I stop him and say thanks for all he does on the radio show. Then I mention to him that he should play some cuts from the new ABB album, "Hittin' The Note", at which point he doesn't look too happy, starts to walk away and says something I can't quite hear because the band is playing. I'm thinking, "what's his problem?", then I realize I've asked him to play music released in 2003 when his radio show only covers the years 1965-1975! Oh well....at least I got in a plug for the ABB!!

The musical highlight for me was Get Up Stand Up, through to the end of the show. They had a great groove going, really kicked it out and soloed lots.

Sandy got a "Waiting For Columbus" t-shirt and bought a pre-signed Raw Tomatos Vol 1 cd. We also met some of the band at the bus after the show and got a couple of cd covers signed. Kenny Gradney and Richie Hayward signed our Endangered Species cd and Kenny, Richie, Bill Payne and Fred Tackett signed our Late Night Truck Stop cd cover. So, they seem to be making themselves accessible to the fans after the show.

LW, yes I do play bass and it was a treat to spend a few minutes speaking with Kenny Gradney. His wise advice to bass players is, "mean every note". He said he had known Allen Woody and mentioned that when he was the bass player in Delaney, Bonnie and Friends, he played with Duane on the song "Livin' On The Open Road" which is on the first Duane anthology album.

The post show party was just down the street at the Pepper Jack Cafe. The band Rose Garland played lots of Dead music and people danced, talked, ate and drank inside and on the patio, where a smokin' time was had by all!! Last but not least, at the Pepper Jack, I got to enjoy the best beer I've ever tasted: Church Key Cranberry Maple Wheat. Yuuumm...


Enzo - 6/24/2004 at 01:34 AM

Little Feat ........... one of my top three favorites!! Red Streamliner is excellant live.. Thanks for the report Lady! Are your ears still ringing?

[Edited on 6/24/2004 by Enzo]

petri - 6/24/2004 at 08:01 AM

Hi all!

Ladymule, it seems you had a good time, wonderful. It sound nice that the band members make themselves available after the show.

I had a big crush on Little Feat as a teenager and I used to - now prepare yourself Zoran - listen to them more than The Brothers years ago. But then, as the years passed by The Brothers kinda grew upon me, if you know what I mean...

Paul McCartney & his band played in Helsinki Olympic Stadium last Thursday (June 17) and I was there among 66,000 people. What a party! I mean, you may think whatever about Sir Paul but he is a helluva singer and bassplayer and puts up a great show. And he has got himself a fantastic band, especially the drummer Abe Laboriel Jr is an animal behind his kit. And the whole band sings backing vocals like angels. The sound was excellent all the time and didn´t leave my ears ringing. There were occasional rain showers and you could see this sea of plastic macs grooving along the music. But occasionally the sun shone through and you could actually see a rainbow in the sky beside the stage. For me it was once-in-a-lifetime experience to see Paul McCartney live. What was a nice gesture was that they played George Harrison´s All Thing Must Pass as a tribute to late George and played it well.

And finally, the weather forecast from Finland: occasional rainshowers and temprature just below 20 degrees C. We are going to have our big Midsummer celebrations in a more or less rainy weather...

Cheers!


Purple69 - 6/24/2004 at 07:23 PM

Just wanted to tell ya, sisters and brothers, it`s fine to come down here and read whar you`re doin`, where ya been, what ya thinkin......Fine concerts, i wish i`d been there....overall i wish we had a convent once a year...would be cool to meet ya all.....
peace and happyness to you all


ladymule - 6/25/2004 at 04:45 AM

LW, I hope you enjoy yourself tomorrow night at the Feat show!! Maybe you can let us know about your evening?

origapch, you get to see the Feat and the Brothers together? Enjoy! You are the lucky one! I'm still waiting on news about the ABB in Toronto and I'm still hopeful...

Dave, nope, ears are not ringing... 'cause I use ear plugs at shows when I need them and I definitely needed them at the Feat show. We were directly in front of, and about 15 feet from the side stacks. I was standing {barefoot, of course} on top of a bar stool, along a side wall, so I could see the band. I had a great view, needless to say!

petri, ya, I thought that was very cool of the band to be available to the fans after the show. I thought I'd post that info so others could be prepared to benefit. Bring those markers and cd covers or whatever you might want signed!
And thanks for posting about the Paul McCartney concert. I enjoyed reading about your experience. My husband and I just bought tickets today to see another once-in-a-lifetime concert: Van "the man" Morrison at Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto on Sept. 3. My husband is a HUGE Van fan so he is really excited. Mind you, primo tickets {which we got} cost us over $250.00 , so that is why it will probably be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!! Any Van fans out there?

Purple, it would be lovely if all of us could get together! Who knows what the future holds......Are you and Zoran making plans to get together? Will you and Zoran keep us up to date on that?

As Purple would say, peace and happiness to all of you...

Hi everyone,
havin`a hot summer day now, must be the 6th in total , normally i`m brown as a bear by the end of June ...no "noblesse oblige"......but this year you have to absorbe every little sunbeam comin down.....
How about everyone....where are the "brownies" and those of the "whiter shade of pale"-fraction ?


harvey - 6/28/2004 at 04:35 PM

We've not had enough sun here to even make me as pink as a prawn let alone as brown as a bear ! It's been raining quite a bit lately - guess that's why England is so green with foliage and I am green with envy of sunny Austria.

Peace, Colin.

I´m more of the "whiter shade of pale" -fraction... June has been a cold and rainy month here in Finland, so I can symphatize with Colin who has had similar experiences in England. Well, by coincidence, today it is sunny and warm and humid here, I expect some thunderstorms...

Ladymule, lucky you, I am sure you´ll enjoy the concert! I am not excactly a fan, have just a few albums in my collection, and "haven´t had the time" (lousy excuse!) to really concentrate on his music... I love "Moondance" album and also his "It´s Too Late To Stop Now" is great. Maybe Van could be the next artist that I could "discover" for myself... Any hints and suggestions from you all digging Van what albums would be essential?

Colin, i invite you for a bunch of beams ....come over by plane


harvey - 6/29/2004 at 01:01 PM

Purple, if only I had some vacation time I would take you up on your offer. The only time I have even set foot in your fine country was for a few hours at Vienna airport when I was in transit to Kosovo to do some relief work.

Today is brighter here, still cloudy but Petri is about to send me some musical sunshine to brighten up July for me - thanks my friend.

With regards to Van Morrison, I am not familiar with his recent work but his early stuff from the 1970's was outstanding. I was lucky enough to see him on the same bill as the Allman Brothers Band at Knebworth Festival in 1974 - boy is that day ever etched in my memory.

Hope you enjoy the show LadyM - and check out the liquid thread for my thoughts on Gin.

Hey Zoran - where are you Bro - not off listening to the ABB again !!!

Peace to all, Colin.


ladymule - 6/29/2004 at 05:32 PM

Hey Erik! We've had cooler than seasonal temperatures here for the last two weeks. Consistently, it's been in the low 20s C and no humidity. We've had lots of sunshine though, so, the livin' has been pretty good! I try to be careful about the amount of sun I get {especially in one "sitting"} because of the hole in the ozone layer and concerns about skin cancer . As a result, I'm more in the "pink as a prawn" and "whiter shade of pale" category!

I am looking forward to warmer air moving in because I love to swim and my bathtub just doesn't "cut the mustard"!


ladymule - 6/29/2004 at 06:07 PM

petri and Colin, thank you both for your good wishes for an enjoyable Van show. The only other time we saw Van, we were seated in the nose-bleed section {the greys} at Maple Leaf Gardens so our greatly improved seating this time pretty much guarantees a fantastic time!

Colin, you saw the ABB and Van on the same bill? Whew...no doubt the day is etched in your memory! How did you like Van's show in '74?


petri, here are 4 essential Van releases, courtesy of my husband Sandy:

Astral Weeks...his first solo album, released in 1968

His Band And The Street Choir...third solo album, released in 1970, after Moondance

Live At The Grand Opera House Belfast...1983

A Night In San Francisco...a double live album recorded in 1993 and released in 1994
--guests include Junior Wells, Sonny Boy Williamson and John Lee Hooker

Happy listening...


By the way, just have to say that I saw J.J. Cale in Toronto on Sunday night. He played for almost two hours and he performed all his hits: Crazy Mama, Cocaine, After Midnight, Magnolia and Call Me The Breeze. His voice and guitar work were awesome plus he had a crack band.


lyricwriter - 6/29/2004 at 06:14 PM

No brown as a bear for me. Though I love the outdoors and warm sunshine, the skin is protected all the time. Keeps it smooth and about as light as fine champagne. I take some flak for it in the summertime when everyone asks me 'where's your tan'. But I get the last laugh
After all, its not as if I'm in Southern California


origapch - 6/29/2004 at 11:49 PM

Still hot in Florida and it's difficult not to be brown as a bear or an Indian when we are talking Florida since there aren't too many bears here.
Speaking on another subject.....Van Morrison. It has been a long time since he has been to the States. The last episode of the Sopranos featured "Glad Tidings" from Moondance which is IMHO one of the greatest recordings ever. Great stuff all the way thru. One great writer whose music never seems to age.


ZekovicZoran - 6/30/2004 at 07:44 AM

3 hours ago came back from Wien (nice town, last time I was there 13 years ago). We had very good weather and lot of fun. There was a lot of invations for David Bowie concert (today in Wien), but something is wrong with DB, and... nothing...
I didn't see my dear bro Purple69, but we have a lot of time in the future (I hope so).
Best wishes to all of you, dear sisters and brothers!


petri - 6/30/2004 at 12:09 PM

Ladymule, thank you and your husband for Van info, I´m gonna check out those albums...

And whadda ya know: Little Feat is playing on July 3rd in a big blues festival held in a town called Jarvenpaa (Lake´s End) about 20 miles south where I live. The festival which is called Puistoblues (Blues in the Park) started today and Feat is going to headline the main concert. Unfortunatley I won´t be able to be there, I will be in the eastern Finland visiting my parents-in-law...

And guess what: it´s raining here, has been pouring all day...

Today I´m gonna watch European Championships Football match between Portugal and Holland on TV and crack open a beer or two... Colin, too bad that England had to go. I am an old Liverpool supporter myself, I even had their membership card for a year in the 70´s. Hope you don´t hate Liverpool supporters... I´m not an active one anymore...

Good day to you all and cheers from rainy Finland!


harvey - 6/30/2004 at 04:39 PM

Overcast here today in England, but I don't care because work is over now for the day and like Petri I will soon be watching the Football - there's a little bar around the corner with a TV and I can hear a pint of beer calling my name now as I type.

Liverpool are ok Petri, perhaps they will do better next season with a new manager and be good enough to compete with the big three (Arsenal, Chelsea & Manchester United). Although I now live near to London, I grew up in the city of Norwich, so that's who I have supported all my life.

With regards to England - well that's how it always seems to go for us. We did not play well against Portugal and desrved to lose - but I am still not happy with that Swiss Referee, I think he needs a new guide dog !

Anyway, the real problem was that David Beckham is friends with Johnny Wilkinson, and when David asked Johnny how he won the World Rugby Cup for England Johnny said it was simple, he just kicked the ball over the bar in the last minute - guess Beckham tried to copy him !

LadyM, I don't remember exactly what Van's set was at the 1974 concert (somebody kept passing me these strange cigarettes ) but I do remember he did all the classics from the early albums and I really enjoyed it.

Zoran, welcome back, glad you had a nice trip to Austria, shame you didn't get to meet our friend Purple69 - next time eh ?

Love and Peace to all, Colin.


Purple69 - 6/30/2004 at 07:05 PM

so we got here...all colors and all shades of people...the thing i like most here about....
may i add one VanMorisson-album ?....take "No Guru No Method No Teacher " breath and listen.....wonderful spiritual stuff..........
sisters and brothers, ìt`s a nice place down here.....


ladymule - 6/30/2004 at 11:44 PM

petri, you are very welcome....and I'm sorry to hear you will miss the Little Feat show ...maybe you'll get to see them next time .


Colin,

Zoran, good to see you back safe and sound and I'm sure you and Erik will get together one of these days.

Erik, good Van call...


Love and Peace to all my sisters and brothers...


origapch - 7/1/2004 at 02:55 AM

One more Van Morrison that is actually suprisingly good is "Philosophers Stone" this is a 2 CD compilation of songs that never made the cut or fit on a particular album. It's hard to believe that he felt that many of these were not good enough.


petri - 7/2/2004 at 08:01 AM

Have a nice time and lot of fun, dear bro Petri! Last night (at midnight) started Iggy Pop with band. He played about one hour at festival EXIT, here in Novi Sad (you could see that somewhere and sometime at MTV). Lot of people and hard sound (but, I can say, that is far, far away from my heart. You know that, I have only one place there, of course, for ABB ). ABB CD from 9.22.2000. is on now.
Be happy and best wishes to all of you, dear sisters and brothers!


Purple69 - 7/5/2004 at 09:15 PM

Hi sisters and brothers
just came back from Little Woodstock....in Waidhofen / Austria....three days of peace, love and music with sunny weather.........wish ya all been there
actually this is a festival with tents, resting in the sun at a river while music is playing........this year we had to US bands !.......TUCK & PATTI....has anybody heard of......you should.....believe me
Peace an`Love


ladymule - 7/6/2004 at 04:28 AM

Erik and Zoran, it's good to hear that my brothers are out there in the summer days and nights enjoying the gift of music!

As for Tuck and Patti, I hardly know them at all but Sandy is a fan. He says that when he played them for me I didn't like them but on your recommendation Erik, I'm going to give them another listen!

Peace and love to my brothers and sisters...


ZekovicZoran - 7/6/2004 at 06:44 AM

Hi, my sweet sisters and brothers!
You know that when I see something with lovely title The Allman Brothers Band, I have to buy that. Yesterday that was MP3 named "The Allman brothers Band: Live in Galnesville". I didn't see that stuff here. What is that? Pirat version? Quality is not bad.
Hi, to you, Ladymule, and thanks (I'll be around this month, and after that, two weeks without anything electric, only sun, sea, rest,...).
Oh, yes: Warm day in Novi Sad, temperature 20 C now (morning, 8:45).
Best wishes to all of you!

You're right Kim, I was just listening to some live Van, Tupelo Honey. Great stuff. One of my favorite tunes. Great music for the beautiful sunset I'm watching out my window. A perfect view of the western sky ('cept for a few trees).
Warm with a light breeze tonight, a really nice evening. Hope everyone elses is just the same....or better.

Erik and Zoran, it's good to hear that my brothers are out there in the summer days and nights enjoying the gift of music!

As for Tuck and Patti, I hardly know them at all but Sandy is a fan. He says that when he played them for me I didn't like them but on your recommendation Erik, I'm going to give them another listen!

Peace and love to my brothers and sisters...


Hi Kim, best wishes to you and Sandy, yeah, you should try the "Castles Spanish / Little Wing" version of T&P.....really great souls and music .....perfect music for warm summer nights and evenings in winter at the fireplace



Thanks for the best wishes, Erik. I'll pass them and the T&P info on to Sandy and we'll see if we have what you are referring to in our record collection.

Take care out there...

At 35 C I enjoy in John Mayall.
Best wishes to all of you, dear sisters and brothers!

Hi Zoran,
you know what ? i`m gonna see Mayall on July 18 at the Wiesen Jazz fest ....hope it`s hot then....


harvey - 7/9/2004 at 07:18 AM

Erik, I'm sure you will enjoy that show. I saw John Mayall last year and he still has a very tight band of musicians with him. It's incredible how good a performance he puts on given that he is now in his 70's.

Regards, Colin.


ZekovicZoran - 7/9/2004 at 09:23 AM

Thanks Colin, i saw the godfather of british blues several times....once with Coco Montoya ( late 80ies ) and two times with Buddy Whittington ( i think 93 and 96 ) and yes, you`re right he`s got history and still lots of power

LW {N}, how's the bass playing going?


ZekovicZoran - 7/13/2004 at 06:04 AM

Yesterday I was walking with my family in the main street (without traffic) of Novi Sad downtown. And... Hard and good music from one caffe. STATESBORO BLUES by our lovely band. We know here what the best music is.
Hi to all of you, dear sisters and brothers!


Purple69 - 7/13/2004 at 09:58 AM

Morning, sisters and brothers
Zoran, Statesboro of Novi Sad, i can hear it loud and clear
Kim, no i won`t forget, i`m getting nervous..only five days to go
BB, a line please...to see that you`re still here
Mrs. Basscat....can i send you something cool for your fingertips ?
where`s harvey and enzo ?
love to ya`ll

Hey Erik, I think I can hear it too . . . .

"Woke up this morning, had them Novi Sad Blues,
Well, I woke up this morning and had them Novi Sad Blues,
I looked over in the corner, and Zoran seemed to have them too"

Every day should start the ABB way

Looking forward to your report from the WiesenFest - not too much of that tyrolian liquid gold now my friend - stay lucid !

Happy day to all, Colin.

lyricwriter - 7/13/2004 at 05:30 PM

Cold, rainy and dreary today
Would much rather be doing something else......

LM....the playing is going along slowly but surely...actually more slowly than surely but at least I'm havin' a good time!

Purple....not sure who you meant when you said 'Mrs. Basscat', but since I'm not much of 'cat' these days when it comes to playing , you must be talkin' about Kim....

Hey Enzo!
Nice to see you again
100 degrees huh? Sounds pretty steamy!
The Austin trip sounds like fun, nothing like swimming in fresh spring water....and listening to good music while your at it

Cheers to you too!


harvey - 7/14/2004 at 07:30 AM

Hey Enzo, 100° sounds pretty good to me, we are struggling to get out of the 60's over here in the UK, got to be the coldest July ever in my time on the planet - and that is some time !!!

Wish I was closer, then I might just pass by for that swim - especially if all our favourite ladies from here were turning up too

Cheers, Colin.


ZekovicZoran - 7/14/2004 at 07:56 AM

Hi! Nice blues, dear bro Harvey. It sounds very good! Novi Sad Blues (I hope that will be a title of some ABB stuff). I am still on John Mayall (and thinking about only 4 days to concert and my lucky and dear bro (Deep)Purple69). Have a great evening on 18th of July! And enjoy in one, little part of JM music for me!
I think it is time to put some ABB music now!


ladymule - 7/14/2004 at 04:48 PM

LW, repeat after me, "meoooow"....I'm sure you're the bass cat Purple was referring too! Slowly but surely and having fun... it's "all good". Thanks for the update!

BB, glad to hear all is well with you and I'm doin' fine.

Dave, I wish I could come to visit. It sounds like my idea of heaven on earth. And I love Mexican food! Many years ago I lived in Sydney, Australia with a Mexican-American woman who was the chef-owner of a Mexican restaurant. It was the best introduction to Mexican food and I haven't had better since.

Colin, now wouldn't that be a party!?

Erik, thanks for remembering and do have a "Wild Child" experience!

And a shout out to Zoran--Mr. magic, mushroom music!!


harvey - 7/14/2004 at 11:20 PM

Yes Kim, that would be some party ! I was in Sydney earlier this year on business, what a great City that is, I just loved every minute I spent there - didn't get to a Mexican restaurant (I do love that food too) but I did get to Doyle's - fabulous Seafood. I can't wait 'til I get the chance to go again.

Love & Peace, Colin.

Hey Harvey ,,, yes we topped the century mark again today at 101* ....... Yeah buddy ,,, just glad I work inside ,,, climate control my friend........

Colin, I hope you get the opportunity to go again 'cause I'm wishing you all the happiness your heart can hold.

I dream sometimes that I am in Sydney again. I'll likely not get the chance to go back but I wish I could, and not to visit, but to live there. The city has a way of creeping into your soul and taking tenacious hold.

Love and peace to you too...

ZekovicZoran - 7/16/2004 at 08:08 AM

Temperature in Novi Sad about 20 C (nice weather). I enjoy "In Memory of ER" now (everytime is a fantastic as a first time).

Hey Erik, I hope you had a fantastic time today at the festival!

I was there in spirit...


ZekovicZoran - 7/19/2004 at 08:46 AM

I am still on John Mayall. Dear bro (Deep)Purple69, what about concert report?
Be happy, my sweet sisters and brothers, with ABB music!


Purple69 - 7/19/2004 at 04:31 PM

Hey there, sisters and brothers
i saw quite a lot of music these last two days
the highlights:
JOHN MAYALL . what a gas, again, he`s 70 now and full of positive power, got really beautiful long white hair still, played some of his standards like "Pretty Woman", "All your loving" and "Dirty Water", his guitarist Buddy Whittington is gettin`better and better ( like a mixture of Eric C and Peter G ), there was soul and fire, fine hammond / guitar duelling . just a fantastic show in front of about 15000.
Colosseum . still fine, Farlowe`s got it still, a bit too jazzy for me
The Doors . should have never enter a stage, it`s a copy of Jim but one without soul, i left after three songs as i don`t want my remberance to be ruined............
more to follow


harvey - 7/19/2004 at 04:42 PM

Erik - glad you had a great time at the festival - shame about the Doors, but I'm glad John Mayall is still playing well. I just found out he will be playing my local theatre again later on in the year so I will be going to see him again then.

Kim, thanks for the lovely good wishes, and I've just heard that there could be a training course required in New South Wales in October, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get the call to go back out to Sydney sooner than I expected

Happy Monday to everyone - best wishes, Colin.


ZekovicZoran - 7/20/2004 at 07:19 AM

Hi, dear family!
Thank you, (Deep)Purple69 (Eric) for nice report. "Another Man" is on now (yes, JM - no Jim Doors, JOHN MAYALL). Note: Eric C(lapton) and Peter G(reen)! I am sure that JM is still good, old (but like a wine: more old - more better) blues (great) man. And, at the end, I am not suprised about "new" Doors.
Be happy and well!


ZekovicZoran - 7/20/2004 at 09:48 AM

Only one thing more: In Novi Sad is suny and very, very hot (over 35 C!!!)


harvey - 7/22/2004 at 06:02 PM

What's happenning Guys and Gals, no one posting down here. Is everybody away on their holidays ? (sorry, I mean vacation for our ex-colonial bretheren )

Today the sun shined, not for long, but it did shine. Maybe summer will start in August

Happy days peeps.


CanPeach - 7/22/2004 at 07:33 PM

Hey Harvey, I remember those English summers...but that was when I was young, and you only remember all the glorious summer days, which ended with the ice cream man coming down the street


harvey - 7/22/2004 at 11:01 PM

Yes Neil, I remember those days too, when Sheffield Wednesday were top of the league !


lyricwriter - 7/22/2004 at 11:07 PM

Hey Harvey....
No, no holiday (or vacation) for me too bad....
Think it's gonna be a while before I'm able to go.....anywhere

Everyone else is havin' a grand time at the beaches, in the country, in the woods etc....
so I'll just have to wish I was there and wait till I can be....

Hey CP! Nice to see you down here, you should stop by more often.


ladymule - 7/23/2004 at 02:00 AM

Erik, sorry to hear you were disappointed by The Doors. What are your impressions of Ray and Robby? How much did they solo? Were they without soul too?

Colin, I hope your trip is on for October! And no, I haven't been on vacation/holiday either...just busy. Maybe I'll get away for a few days next month with my mom. Will you be taking a vacation this summer?


Neil, nice to see you in these parts!

All the best to LW, BB, Zoran, Dave and everyone else!

I think that our bro Purple69 is at some nice place now (vacation). I hope he enjoy himself. I'll be around next week, and, after that, HOLIDAYS (no PC, mobil, TV, car, job, etc. , only Sun, sea, ABB music, rest, cold drink, etc. ).
Here in Novi Sad is a tropical weather (temperature 38 C!!!).
Enjoy and be happy!

Good Morning Purple..... you're up early this morning ......... AnyHoot ,, I was in the lobby at the hospital waiting for them to call my name ,, smiling at everybody when in walks a Big Indin ( native american ) ,,, with his best mean looking expression and his woman ,,, orders here to sit down ,, proceeds to the lab window ,, slaps the bell to alert the clerk ,,lOOks in my direction with his best mean looking expression ,, I'm smiling away ... he walks toward his woman and says "Whats he smiling about"?!!! ..... He turns to look at me and I'm still smiling and I reply " I really like the way you smacked that bell "! Finally They called my name ,, took care of business and on my exit out I had to pass by this mean, mean Indin (LOL) .... He was sitting with one leg crossed over the other ,,so as I walked by him ,, I smacked him on his knee and said " You have a great day and try smiling " ,,, his eyes bugged out and his look got meaner and as I walked around the corner I heard him say" Hey ,,you don't touch me you don't even know me! I started laughing as I left the buiding... He really tickled me .... The good thing I was already at the hospital next to the emergency room ,, in the event this big Indin wanted to slam me ...LOL ,,, This was fun................... Canadian cold front has arrived ,,,68* at the moment .... and we really needed the relief ................................ Nicole ,,, good riding conditions ,,, I'm ready to ride !

harvey - 7/26/2004 at 04:39 PM

Happy new week everybody, I've been a bit busy working on the house this past weekend so haven't had much chance to stop by and say Hi.

Thanks for the show Neil, I'm really looking forward to getting that one - must be one of the earliest versions of "Worried Down with the Blues" on there ? I don't really follow Ice Hockey - all pretty amateurish over here, but I'll keep an eye open for the Maple Leafs results from now on. 37 years eh, I bet even Sheffield Wednesday have won something in that time

Welcome back Erik, glad you had a good break - its actually starting to get a bit sunny here now so maybe August will finally see something like what summer should be over here

Kim, yes, I am taking a vacation this year, but not until the end of November / beginning of December, so I've a while to wait yet. My last break was in March when I went to NYC to catch a show at the Beacon - really enjoyed that trip, but its really boring having to wait 8 months for my next break from work. At the moment I'm feeling envious of all my friends taking their vacations, but I guess I'll get my own back in the winter when they are at work and I will be in Costa Rica for three weeks - 2 weeks in the rainforest and one week at the beach - so that will be something special

Zoran, Nicole, Dave and everybody else - have a great week,

Best wishes, Colin.

Hi harvey, I work across the street from the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto and was in there a few days ago, I was looking at sweaters from international teams and lo and behold, they have a jersey from the Sheffield Steelers hockey team

I was pleasantly surprised to it there


harvey - 7/26/2004 at 06:35 PM

Hey Neil, yes, I guess the team name was an obvious choice with Sheffield being so famous for its steel works. In case you are interested, their website is

Hey Erik, it's nice to be missed. I missed you too. Good to hear you had a relaxing time in the Woodquarters {Little Canada }. I posted a couple of Doors related questions to you on the previous page. Did you miss my post or are you ignoring it?!

Zoran, have a wonderful holiday and I'll miss you too!

Dave, thanks for the amusing hospital story. You made me smile! And I hope your test results are good news for you.

Neil, good evening to you! You and I have some hot, humid weather coming in for Thurs. and Fri.

Colin, your trip sounds lovely...Costa Rican rainforest and beach. By then we all will be posting to Erik's Snow, Blues and Brothers thread. I'll be really envious of your trip then!

Hi everybody, hope you are all having a fine day.

Erik, Wembley Stadium was a 100,000 seater open air soccer stadium where England played all their home international matches. At present it is a pile of rubble, as they have pulled the old one down and are building a new one - should be finished next year.

There have been numerous rock concerts held in the stadium, in years gone by I have seen the Rolling Stones, the Who, CSN&Y etc there, but it needs to be real headline performers like them to fill the place.

What there also is next door is Wembley Arena, which is an indoor hall holding about 5000 people, I saw Neil Young, Yes and several other bands there back in the 80's.

So in answer to your question, Wembley has both an outdoor and an indoor venue, the Stadium (outdoor) and the Arena (indoor). Hope this has helped to jog your memory.

Best wishes to all, Colin.

Colin, I hope your trip is on for October! And no, I haven't been on vacation/holiday either...just busy. Maybe I'll get away for a few days next month with my mom. Will you be taking a vacation this summer?


Neil, nice to see you in these parts!

Kim, Ray and Robby are fine musicians,due to their age by far better than thirty years ago, the band was good but there was another thing i was disappointed about besides that trying to cope Jim and that was Ray`s political agitation by shouting " George Bush ##ck you ", i mean if he does that in the States it`s ok but why in Austria ? I don`t like Mr Bush very much but...agression leads to agression....sorry for having nit answered earlier, i simply overread

All the best to LW, BB, Zoran, Dave and everyone else!

Hi everybody, hope you are all having a fine day.

Erik, Wembley Stadium was a 100,000 seater open air soccer stadium where England played all their home international matches. At present it is a pile of rubble, as they have pulled the old one down and are building a new one - should be finished next year.

There have been numerous rock concerts held in the stadium, in years gone by I have seen the Rolling Stones, the Who, CSN&Y etc there, but it needs to be real headline performers like them to fill the place.

What there also is next door is Wembley Arena, which is an indoor hall holding about 5000 people, I saw Neil Young, Yes and several other bands there back in the 80's.

So in answer to your question, Wembley has both an outdoor and an indoor venue, the Stadium (outdoor) and the Arena (indoor). Hope this has helped to jog your memory.

Best wishes to all, Colin.


Thank you very much, Colin. I`ve been twice to London in my life. One time i saw Gillan at the legendary Marquee club, was a young boy then but very, very impressed. I asked you as i want to come over to London in November to see Deep Purple play at Wembley hall caue they didn`t do a show in Austria this year....
best wishes to you

Erik, thanks for the info on Robby and Ray. I look forward to hearing them play next Tues. night and I hope I'm not as put off by Ian as you were! We'll soon see...

And I'll be keeping my ears open for Ray's opinion of G. Bush.

Peace to you bro...

Hi, sweet company (no Bad)!
I am still here (only two days to may trip).
One question to you, dear bro Deep: Did you see Ian Gillan Band in that time (because many years ago I have been at IGB concert in Belgrade and allmost forgot that story).
Best wishes to all and have a good time!

Zoran, that was back in 82 when Ian Gillan played with Gillan, a few months later he joined Black Sabbath for a year. This gig at the Marquee was really a gas, i still see myself only a few feet away of my alltime favourit rock singer.....

Hi Kim,
what about the Doors concert ? Have you already been to ? Let me know what you think ....



Erik, I found out on Friday that the concert, originally scheduled for Tues. Aug. 3, has been postponed to Friday Aug. 6. This is not good news because Sandy has two gigs on Friday--one late in the afternoon and the other in the evening. One of the gigs might be difficult to get out of without jeopardizing future work with the establishment that hired him. And if we do get around that problem, we still will be out about $250.00 in lost wages. So, it's all up in the air right now. We'll take the financial hit with as much grace as possible to see the show, but if the guy won't hire Sandy again if he takes the night off, we probably won't go to the concert.

The mods on The Doors' web site say the postponement is due to a conflict with the trial dates. John Densmore is suing the other Doors over the use of The Doors 21st Century name.

I'll let you know how it works out for us in the end. Overall though, it's just a bummer for us.


Purple69 - 8/3/2004 at 10:05 AM

At least football season is almost here...4 weeks to go

Your welcome, C Peach!

I found out that the Mule tickets were on sale when I phoned ticketmaster for tickets to see Leon Russell. The "on sale" details were TBA on the Mule site yesterday but things seem up to date on the site today.

Here are the details on the Leon Russell show in case you are interested:

Thurs. Aug. 26
Reverb
Toronto
Doors-7pm
$35.00 at club after 6pm......$35.00 plus service charge through ticketmaster

Only 300 tickets will be sold and about 150 are left.

If you don't know, Leon Russell was the band leader for Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishmen. This should be a great show. He is a superb musician, singer and songwriter. Plus, IMO, Leon and Gregg share similar vocal qualities.

petri - 8/17/2004 at 02:58 PM

Hello everyone,

Great to be back! My summer vacation came and went and now I´m back at work again, quiet day for a change...

Guess what: it´s raining here in Finland for a change. We had a short sunny spell but now it´s wet wet wet again.

During my vacation we broke all the rain records in hundred years - at least here in Southern Finland - and had floods. Sewage water got into the drinking and household water in some towns (luckily we were saved from that!) and roads were closed as floods literally washed them away. During that time the residents of Lappland enjoyed sunshine and a very warm weather. So unfair!

But hey, sorry, I don´t mean to sound depressing, anyway a vacation is a vacation and I enjoyed myself. But it´s great to be back!

Colin, where are you? Did you get the discs alright and if you did, hope you enjoyed them?

Until later my friends.


CanPeach - 8/17/2004 at 04:41 PM

Hi there Petri, and welcome back my friend. Glad to hear you had a nice time even though the weather was not at its best.

I've been very busy at work lately and I've also been decorating my house in the evenings and at the weekends, so I have only been able to lurk around here occasionally, but thats coming to an end now so I will be able to give you, and all my other friends here, a little bit more attention like you deserve.

I did get the shows, thank you very much, I have had them in my car CD changer all the time you have been away. I love the Little Feat show - excellent music and excellent sound quality for the era - thanks once again, I've sent you a PM with a longer reply.

Well my friends, it has been one heck of a week over here this week with record rainfall - fall-out from the Hurricanes that hit our poor friends in Florida - but the weekend is meant to be a bit brighter so I'm going to head for the coast for a couple of days.

Hope you all have a good one, where ever you all are,

Love and Peace to all, Colin.

Welcome back, petri and Zoran!

Yes, fall is approaching... . Yesterday, I noticed fall colours at the top of the Maple tree next to my house and a few leaves on the ground.

Tonight, I'm off to see the music documentary Festival Express {Janis, The Dead, Sylvia Tyson and others} and Thursday night is Leon Russell in Toronto--good things to look forward to!

Hope all are well......peace and love....

By the way, I just bought a 3 cd deluxe set of Kinks´ "Village Green Preservation Society". I highly recommend that to you all besides the new ABB live cd "One Way Out". Cool...

Erik, a good early fall day to you! We've got light rain and cool air--blahhh. Good idea about revamping the Snow thread. What have you got in mind, something more than the addition of one, rather significant word?


petri, does the Kinks' set have You Really Got Me on it? When I was about 16 years old I listened to the Van Halen version a lot. In high school, we would grab lunch at a local restaurant and then go the arcade to play pinball. You Really Got Me was on the jukebox and I gave that tune quite a bit of play!

Hi everyone!

Kim,
Village Green is a concept album from 1968 about the past values, lost innocence, childhood and adolecensce etc., very "English" and it went largely unnoticed at that time - it was released in England same day with The Beatles´ White Album! But it´s a great album, really a classic. You Really Got Me (their third single I think from 1965) can be found on Kinks´ singles collection cd which I also highly recommend.

Another working week ahead and the weather is hanging heavy, dull and grey and humid...

Lots of love to you all!

ZekovicZoran - 8/31/2004 at 07:54 AM

Hi, dear sisters and brothers!
Bro Enzo, I hope you will enjoy in football (in my country everyone like football, but not USA football, we have the same word FOOTBALL for play you call socker, or something like that).
I spent first part of my holidays at the sea (two weeks, in the city Herceg Novi, that is at coast of Montenegro - you know that is Adriatic sea and at oposite side is nice state called Italy - second part of my coutry Serbia&Montenegro, 650 km far away from my city Novi Sad) and second part (two weeks, too) at home and in my house in mountain Fruska Gora, not really the mountain, it is only about 500 m high, 20 km far away from Novi Sad. We call that weekend-house, and a place RANCH (without cows and cowboys, only plants, fruits, grass, birds, in one word NATURE ). One thing more: My city Novi Sad had a name in Rome time, abot 1,800 years ago, NEOPLANTA (i.e. New Plant, and that is Novi Sad).
My spirit is stronger than all demons in the world! The best food for my spirit is ABB music ("Stormy Monday" from "New York City Blues" is on right now).
Best wishes from Novi Sad!!!


ladymule - 8/31/2004 at 05:51 PM

Hello to all my bros and sis'!

petri, thanks for the info on the Kinks' Village Green and the singles collection.

David, enjoy the "footie". I like tennis so I will be watching the U.S. Open.

Zoran, what a lovely holiday you've had! A natural setting certainly helps us to keep the spirit up and the demons down! Glad you are up!

Erik, regarding vines, give it a go!

Good morning, my sweet (I use this word as sister Lana) family!
Bro David, you don't know how close you are with my nick name (my second, family name is Zekovic, and Zeko means Rabbit - a few words of my family history: about 300 years ago my grand, grand, grand... father was from old family Radonjic in Montenego, and he had blue hair (Blondie) and eyes (as a rabbit), and, of course had the nick name Zeko (that is a first man with new family name Zekovic - english: Zekovich). And now, for my friends I am Zeka, i.e. Zek(a).
Sister Ladymule, first of all, big HELLO, and don't worry, demons will be down forever ("Trouble no more" from "Live at Ludlow Garage" is on right now).
At the end, this morning is cold here (last night was a rain) and temperature is only 16 C.
Be happy with ABB music!
Zek(a)

harvey - 9/1/2004 at 08:52 PM

Hello again everyone . . . I have finally got my computer together again at home so I thought it was way overdue for me to check in here again with you.

David, I know what you mean about that song . . . haunting isn't it ? It's like that last song you hear in the morning just before you get out of the car and go into work, the last song stays with you all day - just as well it's usually an ABB song eh Zoran (or should that be Zeka ?)

Zoran, I am glad you had a nice holiday, I've not had the pleasure of visiting either Serbia or Montenegro, but I have been to Split in Croatia so I know how lovely that coastline is along there

Petri, I am very glad you are enjoying the shows, and as for Second Coming, your description of 'awsome' sums it up nicely, particularly for the era . . . but the burning question is still whether it is Duane or Berry singing "Hey Joe" Any thoughts ?

Erik, I am glad the weather is being kind to you . . . I've just heard that we are in for an "Indian Summer" here in England, sunny days for the next 6 weeks - about time too, it has been to wet and dismal by far for the past month or so

Kim, I know you are going to enjoy Van the Man - don't forget to give us a full report. I have only ever seen him live once, at Knebworth Festival in 1974. He co-starred with The Sensational Alex Harvey Band (no relation by the way - he was Scottish), The Doobie Brothers and some other American Band - now who was that ? Can't put my finger on the Name - had some long blond haired singer on keyboards and some cowboy type character on guitar and they were pretty darn good !!!

BB & Nicol, hope life is treating you kindly . . .

Love & Peace to you all my friends,

Colin.

Hi BB, where have ya been lately ? no more wisdom here out of your beauty mind
Hi, Petri, we`re near enough to sip coffee together

A whole lotta love to ya all


Hi there, Purple... how have you been? lol, I was just refilling my mind with some more wisdom and giving everyone a break in the meantime.
It's been in the 80s here...I hope you've been enjoying some decent weather as well


ZekovicZoran - 9/2/2004 at 07:48 AM

Good morning, dear sisters and brothers!
Hey (no Joe) bro Colin, you are right about Adriatic cost ("our" side of Montenegro is much more better than that of Italian - I am sorry, but that is true). And, Split is a beautifull city, but no so nice as Dubrovnik in Croatia.
As usual, ABB and "Draems" from "The Allman Brothers Band" is on right now.
Be happy and well!
ZEKA


Purple69 - 9/2/2004 at 12:04 PM

So all is well and around here, glad to see and read, even BB is back with refilled tanks of wisdom, Colin`s get fine weather even in the Uk and Zoran, our Big Brother is still by far the greatest freak of all and Kim ?.......snow up there ? hey i don`t think so, you got the biggest oak trees of us all here......i am fine too..still working too much, trading too much, colecting too much, still not knowing if i`ll make it to Beacon 05...........
i hug you all

B.B., nice to see you here!

Zeka, a big hello right back-at-ya! BTW, I REALLY enjoyed the Doors' show!!

Erik, lol! You are right, no snow yet...only in my nightmares! In fact, we had a very warm day with more of those Blue Skies...

Colin, Sounds like a smokin' line-up! And thanks for the good wishes. I'll be in row two so I'm looking forward to a very intense musical experience!


Happy day and love to all!

petri - 9/3/2004 at 07:47 AM

Hello each and everyone,

And greetings from Finland, the land of rain and deers. (you get the pun?) You can smell the autumn in the air... I actually love autumn, the kind of with the sunshine and all the different colors of the palette, leaves turning yellow, red, brown... Luckily it has been promised warm weather and sunshine for the weekend.

We had a one of those small lovely moments with my son (3 years) yesterday. After I had gotten back from work and sipped my coffee we used the opportunity and decided to go out and play some football before his bedtime. It started to pour with rain as we were playing but we didn´t mind that and had in fact a great time kickin the ball in the rain. It was lovely to see the joy in his face... And he has a mean right foot for a 3-year-old.

Kim,
Hope you have a fantastic concert experience with Van The Man. You are going to see him again...

Colin,
I aplogize you in public for being soooo slow with you shows, but you know the reasons... Next time it will be different. Hey, I´ll check Second Coming show and offer my opinion on who might be the singer on "Hey Joe".

That´s all for now, folks!

Cheers!


CanPeach - 9/3/2004 at 12:21 PM

petri, I know what you mean, I was very happy when my son also started playing sports with me. Now he's 10 and playing soccer and hockey. He's better than I ever was


harvey - 9/3/2004 at 12:35 PM

Hi everybody, the sun is finally shining like it really means it and it looks like it is going to be a lovely weekend

Petri, no problem about the shows my friend, remember I had a full month to get your shows together while you were away on holiday, and in any case patience is a virtue I always try to embrace

Those moments with your kids will stay with you forever, treasure them well for they are all too soon part of your family history. My two boys are now aged 18 and 20 and sadly we never seem to do anything together at the moment - it is that funny period when they feel that they are to old to be happy to go out with Dad but in fact are not quite old enough to realise that it can still be fun to do so as an adult - if that makes sense to you

Kim, enjoy tonight, and along with Petri, Zeka, Erik, David, Neil, Nicole, BB and everybody else - have a great weekend

Love & Peace, Colin.


Purple69 - 9/3/2004 at 07:43 PM

Lovely story bout your three year old, Petri....those memories are forever.....
My "little one" is 17, and i had a fantastic experience last year with him when he got to see Deep Purple live the first time ever, yes, he had known many of their songs cause i love and play them over and over. His opinion was" well, not bad but...old".........but when he saw the band on stage with Ian Gillan riaring of "Highway Star" his eyes were wide open, he couldn`t stand still, danced, Headbanged and told me afterwards that it was the best concert he ever saw........ i tell you, i was very very happy.........
A wonderful, blasting weekend to the family here, seems like we`re getting bigger


ladymule - 9/4/2004 at 11:02 PM

harvey - 9/4/2004 at 11:11 PM

Sounds like a great set Kim - was the man on form ?


ladymule - 9/4/2004 at 11:33 PM

More Van info:

Seven piece band plus Van: electric and upright electric bass, drums, percussion, piano/organ, guitar, trumpet, sax--alto, bari and tenor {plus flute and clarinet}. Van played harmonica and alto sax.

The band had a tight pocket and great grooves. The horn players had numerous short solos and the organ and guitar players each took a couple of short solos. Bass and drums/percussion each had one solo. Although there was a guitar there, Van didn't play it; he did play a few alto sax and harmonica solos and often, he played the heads with the horn players. I was somewhat disappointed that there were no extended solos.

Van's singing was stellar and it was great to be close enough to see his facial expressions, body language and conduct on stage. He seemed calm and relaxed; I wish he had gotten a little crazy--we didn't get any trademark Van leg kicks!

For me, song highlights were Days Like This, Into The Mystic, Whinin' Boy Moan and Don't Start Crying Now>Custard Pie.

After an hour and a half, Van left the stage with 16,000 people roaring for more!



petri, this was the Van concert I was referring to a while back when we got our tickets. So, no, not again...and thanks for the good wishes.


ladymule - 9/4/2004 at 11:45 PM

Oui...

I heard on the radio that booze was not allowed in Van's mini bar and he wanted only low fat chocolate bars! Live and learn, eh?


Purple69 - 9/6/2004 at 04:17 PM

Hi Kim, sounds like a nice and laid back evening with Van.....like a good red wine...the older the better....
lots of sunbeams to you

Welcome to the thread Maggie...you've got a lot goin' on in that post woman!! I'm glad you got your tix...enjoy the show for me and ah, have one for me too, please!


Remnants of Frances here...cool, windy and rain off and on...generally blahhh!! I'm looking forward to some sun for the next few days.


Jeanne - 9/10/2004 at 03:27 PM

Hi all. Just stumbled in here and came across ladymule's Van posts. Yowza! Sounds like a great show!! There is nothing like Van. I went through a stretch recently and had nothing but Van in the player and nothing but a smile on my face. He is most definitely the leader of the band. His timing and control is amazing. I love when he adds a new flavor to his own songs as well as the covers. Just when you think you know what's coming, he shifts gears and sends ya reeling without missing a beat. Gotta love it.

Where was the show, by the way?


ladymule - 9/11/2004 at 02:19 AM

Hi Jeanne, nice of you to stumble in and say hi!

You would have loved Have I Told You Lately That I Love You. He definitely shifted gears and sent me reeling on that one!

The show was in Toronto. Have you seen him live?


Purple69 - 9/11/2004 at 07:40 PM

Hey to Kim and Erik! Going to be a bit muggy here today but the sun IS shining.

Hi my friends, how are you doing today? Maggie, nice to meet you!

The fall/autumn has surely arrived in Finland. The wind is ripping the yellow leaves from the trees and we have had - you quessed - rainshowers today. No sight of Indian Summer...

Sorry Kim, you got the tickets ages ago so I misunderstood that you are going to see him again...

By the way, how many of you is going to watch World Cup Hockey final between Canada and Finland, when our boys are going to beat Canada Only joking, it´s going to be a tough game... or then not?

See you soon!


ladymule - 9/14/2004 at 05:16 PM

Hi all!

petri, sorry to hear you are getting rain and wind--that sucks! We've got a funny mix of summer and fall. It is sunny, quite warm and a bit humid. Most of the leaves are still green, but I've seen two large, ripe pumpkin patches, gardens are being harvested and the days are getting shorter and cooler, earlier in the evening.

We're having friends over tonight for a fire in the backyard. Y'all are invited, you know.


Oh, and no hockey for me. Good luck to Finland.....and Canada!

Hi my friends,

I am devastated, Finland lost World Hockey Cup final against Canada 3-2...

Congratulations my Canadian friends!!! And Maggie, thanks for your support and waving the flag...

It´s a beautiful day for a change, sunny but chilly. Hey, what about music? What are you grooving to right now? I´m listening to Kinks´ (them again!) Muswell Hillbillies. Very Americana in Kinks style.


harvey - 9/15/2004 at 01:06 PM

Hi all,

Sorry to hear about your defeat Petri

Happy to hear about your victory Neil & Kim

. . . . . and we are not going to mention Football (thats Soccer to our American friends) are we Erik - well at least neither of us lost I guess

Sunny day hear in jolly old England - and Petri, right now I'm listening to the Doobie Brothers - cool show from new years eve 99

Have a great day everybody


CanPeach - 9/15/2004 at 03:41 PM

Hey everyone, sorry Petri, your team played a great game. sadlly due to the lockout, there will be no NHL probably this year

harvey, everytime I hear "What a Fool Believes" I'm taken back to my high school days and lots of good memories


FarmerMaggie - 9/15/2004 at 04:21 PM

Morning all!
Sorry Petri! But the grafix were cool.

As for the real 'football' I am partial to Brazil: 1) because we want to move there and 2) they have always been sort of the under dog. No offense to anyone. Plus, I think watching any really good teams play is amazing.
American football is religion. I follow 4 teams because of family connections. I'm always happy just to see a good game.

Mist on the mountains, but it may burn off.
Everyone have a good day!

Hi to all!

David, I googled "cord wood size" and some good sites came up. From jiwiwood.com/faq/cord.html {check it out}: "A cord is 128 cubic feet of wood stacked tightly. This is typically stacked 4' high by 4' wide by 8' long {4x4x8}. A typical fullsize pick-up will safely hold up to a 1/2 cord."

Colin and petri, thanks for the congrats but I'm more of a sport without borders kind of person.

ZekovicZoran - 9/17/2004 at 08:29 AM

Hi, dear sisters and brothers!
One story: Last night was some movie at TV and my older daughter Sonja (12 years old and profession: TV watcher) with a big smile on her face said: "Daddy, daddy, do you know what was in the movie? "Father" said to his "daughter": You can do everything you want, but don't put your dirty shirts on the most expensive and important thing in our house - CDs collection of Allman Brothers Band!"
Temperature only 9 C and, if you look outside, you can see that rain will come.
But, against rain, as allways, ABB music!

Neil,
no reason to woryr, i ain`t much of a football-friend though i have to admit that we little Austrian did our best...and weren`t beaten
i would have loved to fly over to London this fall but i won`t make it as a four day trip to London inclusive three Purple tickets and a medium class hotel cost by far more than i expected........but, you know what ? Instead of flying to a Purple show, Jon Lord comes to life is wonderful....btw, how`s the weather for you ?

FarmerMaggie - 9/19/2004 at 05:47 PM

Hello everybody!
Haven't been able to get on here for a day or so and is very slow response today. We had tornados on Friday that actually touched down a few miles away. All is well now with very minor wind damage. Today is clear, crisp and cool. The weather man said we were experiencing a "CANADIAN HIGH"! Ooooo! Thank you Canada!
Lot's to clean up in the yard, so today is the day for yad work. Hope everyone else is ok.

Which teams, Maggie?

Hey TerriB!
I have followed Pittsburg since the late 60's to fret my dad. At that time I had a cousin who played for Greenbay, who I still follow as well. About 15 years ago I started pulling for New Orleans because they are ALWAYS the under dog but occaisionally make a good showing. If the Saints ever make it to the Super Bowl, that will be the party I would want to attend! Then along came the Panthers. I am a Tarheel by birth and my sister(who still lives there) has PSL for the Panthers. So when I am in Erikson Stadium I will root for the Panthers(except for the year they played Greenbay in a pre-season-I sat at the bar by my self!) So ultimately I just love a good game. And it gets worse! Then there is college ball. I was raised in Durham,NC and attended many Duke home games. But the family loyalty was ultimatly with VAtech because my dad graduated from there(and so did Henry). My dad is dead now and never saw them play as well as they have in the past few years. Yesterday they crushed Duke 41-17, ouch! So...I'm a schitzophrenic and so am I!
And then there is college Basketball, which is a way of life in NC. But that is another chapter!
I'm off to pick up debris and shingles from the yard.

Love to all!
Maggie


ZekovicZoran - 9/20/2004 at 08:44 AM

Dear Ladymule, I don't know a title of the movie (but today I'll try to find it in (old) newspaper). But, very nice story!

From Mother Earth News - "Wood should be stacked so that the squirrel can run through it but not the cat that is chasing it" - this allows for just enough air circulation to keep the wood dry and rot free.

So nice to get on here with out the 30 min wait. Another crisp "Canadian High" today! So nice of our northern family to share! It's so gorgeous outside that it's (almost) ok that it's a Monday! Hope all is well with everybody.

harvey - 9/20/2004 at 06:52 PM

Hi everybody, hope you are all well and enjoying life. Cloudy day in the UK today, but no rain thankfully

Kim, I consider myself enlightened, I'm not quite sure when knowing what a "Cord" of wood is will come in handy, but you never know

Maggie, loved your Squirrel and Cat analogy for stacking wood - I might use that myself when explaining how to correctly stack building materials on site in one of my Bridge building manuals

Erik, sorry to hear you are not coming over to see Deep Purple, but I can understand why because London is very expensive compared to most other cities in Europe. I was actually considering going to see them myself but unfortunately the London concert is only a few days before I go off on vacation, so I'm going to be too busy. Maybe next year

Petri, loving the old ABB shows - cheers my friend.

Zeka, Nicole, Neil, Dave and everybody else - have a great week


FarmerMaggie - 9/21/2004 at 04:04 PM

Mornin' all!
More of that cool, clean, crisp "Canadian High" today. But not the kind you can mail order!
Good day everybody!
Maggie


ladymule - 9/22/2004 at 12:43 AM

Hey, everybody!

We've had a beautiful, warm 'summer' day and warm air is expected to stay through the week. We just had a gorgeous sunset with blue and orange sky. Through the open window, I can hear baseball players at the local ball diamond and crickets.



Zeka, thanks for the effort!

Colin, you must be an urbanite and an "Enlightened" Rogue, perhaps?

Maggie, I'm glad to hear you are okay and that the storm didn't cause too much damage to your area. I hope that Canadian High continues to Rise Low!
BTW, I checked my woodpile, and by luck rather than design, I've stacked according to the "squirrel but not the cat" principle! Thanks for the tip.


ZekovicZoran - 9/22/2004 at 07:39 AM

Hi to all of you, dear S&B!
One question to bro Harvey (first of all HELLO ): I saw somewhere that you are from Reading (true?). Want to know something more of Reading festival (this year), about bands, good or bad, people, etc. Saw one band (not so bad) Hives (I know that band) at the festival this year (of course, on TV, I don't know is that was MTV, or MTV2, or VH1, or...).
Novi Sad is rainy city today.
Best wishes!


FarmerMaggie - 9/22/2004 at 01:25 PM

Morning everybody!
Hey Kim! Looks like we are still in an air exchange with Canada here on the EastCoast.
Another gorgeous day!
M

Another Sunny Day on Maggie's Farm


petri - 9/24/2004 at 01:08 PM

Hello everyone!

I haven´t really been able to be around because I have been working like mad but luckily it´s Friday and weekend.

It´s a beautiful autumn/fall afternoon, sun is shining and I´m heading home soon... Gonna crack some cold ones open tonight while watching The Bone Collector on TV (creeps...).

Colin, glad you´re enjoying the shows, got your PM, will answer eventually...

Have a nice weekend you all my friends and enjoy life!

Cheers!


Purple69 - 9/24/2004 at 01:18 PM

Hey there sisters and brothers.....so we`re changing....names, places, weather, seasons.........a few weeks and we`re preparing X-mas and the winter thread again....
Maggi - damn beautiful pic of your farm !


FarmerMaggie - 9/24/2004 at 02:43 PM

Thanks! And next time you're over here, come for dinner!


FarmerMaggie - 9/24/2004 at 02:57 PM

And Happy Friday everybody!

BTW, I love this thread because it 'goes all around this world', and I found a website that literally puts us all in perspective. I like to visit it and look at where the sun and moon are over all of us at that particular time. The pics will post here, but because they are live via satellite they only last a few minutes.

ZekovicZoran - 9/24/2004 at 09:40 PM

It's near midnight (and I am a rider) here now. Rain all day. In Swiss snow (information from TV). Dear bro Deep69, you can start your "winter" pages!
Best wishes to all!


Purple69 - 9/25/2004 at 02:55 AM

it`s early in the morning, still dark but you can hear the earth breath as heavy as the two patients with their respiratory devices.......few hours, and i walk home, in the cool air, hopefully with a few sunbeams..........happy weekend yàll


FarmerMaggie - 9/25/2004 at 03:20 AM



sweet, inspirational prose.....


ZekovicZoran - 9/25/2004 at 04:05 PM

Who can stop the rain???


ladymule - 9/27/2004 at 11:04 PM

Happy spectacular, sunny day to all!!

Zeka, I think it is way too soon for the winter thread! We've still got warm and sunny days here. Come and visit--get out of the rain!

Maggie, what do you click on in the livingearth site?


lyricwriter - 9/28/2004 at 01:25 AM

Hey Kim,

Just click on the "Visit the Interactive Earth" next to the blue 'Earth' in the top right corner. This will bring you to where you can see satellite pictures of anywhere in the world. On my first try, I got stuck somewhere in the Indian Ocean, but then realized how to move around the globe. If you know the latitude and longitude it's even easier. You can also see where it's day and night around the world and just click on the place you want to see close up and you can zoom in or out to get different satelite view. Pretty cool.

And you're right....it's way too early for the winter thread....at least here....still nice fall weather....maybe Zeka's winter is coming sooner.

Hi to all.....Colin, Maggie, Dave, Erik, petri, Zeka and everyone else down here...




ZekovicZoran - 9/28/2004 at 07:27 AM

Hi to all here! Dear Ladymule, you have some woodoo things (Ha-ha): Today is sunny day, nice weather, temperature no so high, but it is OK. I have got some old things (Do you know band SLADE? Allways that band was funny for me, and now CD MP3 "Slade 1969-1981" is on, and it is not so bad).
Have a nice day, my dear S&B!


harvey - 9/28/2004 at 12:51 PM

Hi to all.....Colin, Maggie, Dave, Erik, petri, Zeka and everyone else down here...


Hi Nicole and all my other distant friends here

Zeka, glad the Serbian Sun is shining on you. In reply to your question the other day (sorry for taking so long to respond), yes the town where I live is the home of the Reading Festival. But even though it is on my doorstep I have not been to it since the 1970's The last time that I went there were such great bands as Yes, Genesis and Supertramp all on the same bill. The problem was that the event became so popular that the Town Council put a limit on how much the organisers could spend on the event, because the venue is in the centre of the town and the whole place became gridlocked for three days. As a consequence, for a number of years afterwards only minor bands played the event and Glastonbury became the place to go.

It has got better again in recent years, but not with enough bands sufficiently to my taste to tempt me into going again yet, and next year I intend to go to Red Rocks in August to see the ABB - so no contest .

Where's our Nordic friend Petri got to then? Hope he's not been driven over to the "Winter Thread"

By the way Maggie, thanks for the Earthlink - great site

Have a great week everybody,

Love & Peace, Colin.


petri - 9/28/2004 at 03:51 PM

Hello everyone,

Rainy Day, dream away... Still at work but soon heading home.

Cheers!


ladymule - 9/29/2004 at 01:36 AM

Hi all!

A cool but not yet winter wind was blowin' today. And hardly any sun--what a bummer!


Nicole, thanks very much for helping me navigate the site. Nice to see you, as well!

Maggie, thanks very much for the link to the livingearth site. I've been enjoying all there is to see, including the polar ice cap pics.

Zeka, yes, I "have some woodoo things"! Thanks for the ! I'll be seeing the boys Oct. 24. Wish y'all could be there...

Hey everybody,,, its me ....what a weekend ,,, My parents celebrated their Golden anniversary this past Saturday ( I was best man ) !!!! My folks renewed their wedding vows ,, what a privilage and honor it was to witness that..... Heck ,, I think I was more nervous than my pop!!! AnyhOOt ,,, just wanted to say hello to all my friends here and wish all of you the best........ oh yes ,, temps are cooling down ,, time to shut down the pool this weekend ,, still warm ,, but the days are getting shorter and the nights cooler ,,, time is getting closer for an outdoor fire in the pit....... BOOMER SOONER BABY!!!................ ...................Zek ,ol' buddy ,, you're to much man.... I really get a kick out of the way you express yourself (woodoo)


ZekovicZoran - 9/29/2004 at 08:09 AM

Hi, dear S&B!
Dear Bro Colin, thanks for the report. I am sure that we are the same (the best music until 70's, and after that... Only ABB!!!). Red Rocks next year? Good idea! We'll go together?!
Dear Bro Petri, the best way against the rain is our dear Sister Ladymule with her woodoo magic (I'll be with you at 24 Oct. in my minds - I hope you will feel that).
Dear Bro Enzo, first of all, the best wishes to your parents (I hope they will have 5 x Golden anniversary in the future). What about Red Rocks?
Woodoo is working: Sun, sun, sun!
Have a nice day, as allways!


FarmerMaggie - 9/29/2004 at 03:02 PM

Good Morning everybody!
Hey Kim, glad you like the link. Sorry I didn't catch your querry sooner. I am fascinated by it as well. So sorry, Petri. They are already up there and I am a bit voyeristic.

We had tropical heavy rains/flooding for 2 days and then last night it cleared off before moonrise. There were just a few wispy clouds to answer the moon glow and it was humbling. You know, when the moon is low, colorful, and HUGE.

Glorious start today!
We sent all that bad stuff north. Sorry to those next in line.
Going to show tomorrow and taking kids to this one so they can see Feat!
Aiy-Eeee!
Love to all!
Maggie


1 more daze 'til Happy Feat...


Enzo - 9/29/2004 at 05:57 PM

dreaming away while sleeping last evening / early morning ... I was asked to do the guitar work on a studio recording with a bunch of old friends (I'm a bass player) so I asked for the effect pedal just in case I screwed up (yeah I was nervous) and just before the recording began ,,, I snuck out the back door.... Sunny day here in Oklahoma and 74*


ladymule - 9/30/2004 at 02:01 AM

Maggie, have a great Feat show tomorrow! Hang out at the bus after the show if you want to talk to the band and/or get stuff signed. They were available and gracious when I saw them earlier this summer.

Zeka, I'll be listening for you...

David, nice to see you bro! BTW, you are toooo funny!!

Hey Neil, greetings from the old country . . . just in case you were wondering what was happening to your old soccer team - Sheffield Wednesday - the league table is below.

They are not doing too bad at the moment, up near the top, but it is the third division I'm afraid, a long way from the Premier league that they used to be in up until about 10 years ago.

Anyway, thought you might like a bit of nostalgia - some people say it ain't what it used to be though

Hello everyone

Nice crisp sunny autumn day. Bought my first car today, dark green Ford Focus, two years old, only 40000 kms driven... Have to drive it home to Hyvinkaa today. But I am not going to start making my trips to Helsinki by car, it´s so goddam difficult to find a parking place here... so it´s commuter train for me - in fact it´s a great way to go to work. I have only 10 minutes walk to my work from Helsinki Railway Station.

Anyway, have a nice weekend you all!

Cheers!


harvey - 10/1/2004 at 12:36 PM

Hey Petri - hows it going my friend

Talk about co-incidences, my car is also a Ford Focus - a 1.8 litre 16 valve Zetec Sport in maroon with a 6 CD changer in the boot (sorry, thats trunk to my American chums ) - and Zeka, you'd be proud of me, ABB in every slot

Have a great weekend everybody


MRJAMES1 - 10/1/2004 at 01:06 PM

Contractor calls our driver "where you at?".....our driver "I'm under the bridge"..."where you at"....contractor" I'm on top of the bridge!" ...... Ever read Mad Magazine,,,spy vs.spy!! lol ...

Thanks for asking Colin, I´m doing just fine except that at least this week will be a very busy one here at work. My Ford Focus is a 1.6 litre but can´t remeber the type, I´m awful with the cars... But it´s a great little machine to drive, I love it.

quote:
petri, congrats on your first car!! What took you so long?


Thanks Kim. It took so long because basically while living in Helsinki I didn´t need a car because public transport system is soooo good... And after moving outside Helsinki to Hyvinkaa the distances in my present home town are so short that you can either walk or cycle. But after having two little children it came obvious that we really need a car. It makes moving around and shopping so much easier.

But anyway, enough about cars. Let´s hope that the sunshine continues for awhile. I wish you all a happy beginning of the week. Enjoy life!

Cheers!





ZekovicZoran - 10/4/2004 at 08:41 AM

Hi to all, my dear S&B!
Bro Petri, I was thinking about Ford Focus (nice car), but I have bought one Fiat Punto (1.9 JTD) few months ago. It is very similar to Focus. Nice car, too.
Best wishes to all!

FarmerMaggie - 10/4/2004 at 04:19 PM

Glorious morning to everybody!
Clear 'Blue Sky' in VA, a cool crisp Fall tease.
It sure was busy here for the past few days. It will take me a day to catch up on my reading. The 3 shows we saw were wonderful and we were grateful to be there, Saturday was an unexpected surprise. Missed the big 'Red Bus", Kim. We had kids with us and they wanted to see the 'biker chick stuff'. We did get to meet Feat back in May so all was well with that. Thursday was our family night. But Friday and Saturday....well, that will take me an hour to tell and since there were otheres involved, I won't tell secrets.

The post man just brought me 6 bubble packages a minute ago with an inquisitive look in his eye. Opening now! Will do vine stuff first if any there.

Love to all!

Good afternoon (here in Finland) to all,

Cloudy but reasonably warm(?) here. Nice day at work, leisurely pace for a change.

It´s strange to notice that even if one´s mind doesn´t grow old (hmmm...?), your body does: will get my first bifocals tomorrow... can´t fight the years...

Good day sunshine...

Yeah, that´s what it was like but now I have my new lenses. And God it´s hard to get adjusted. I have to keep my head in a different angle than I have used to in order to be able to read. And going up or down the stairs is a bit difficult in the beginning... OUCH!!!

Love and Peace to all, Colin.


petri - 10/7/2004 at 08:19 AM

Good morning everyone,

Just like in the British isles, it´s sunny and clear day in Finland, just the perfect day to sit inside four walls working...

Tomorrow is a big day, the institute I work for is celebrating its 95th anniversary and we have organised a seminar and a little banquet after the seminar. That means a suit and a tie instead of my usual jeans and T-shirt... And this is the goal that I - as everybody else here - have been working on very hard during the last weeks... But tomorrow it´s bottoms up or as we say in Finland: "Perseet olalle". (too rude to translate here, has something to do with the double meaning of "bottom"...) I shall write some drunken messages here tomorrow.

Cheers!




harvey - 10/7/2004 at 01:07 PM

Have a great time Petri - Perseet olalle


MRJAMES1 - 10/7/2004 at 01:10 PM

Good Morning to all,

One day I have to make a trip across the pond and even to Canada. Sounds like a great place to visit, but I wil stay away from those four walls petri is talking about. I have my own.

Enjoy!!!


harvey - 10/7/2004 at 03:36 PM

Hey, if you are coming over Jim be sure to bring the ABB with you


FarmerMaggie - 10/7/2004 at 06:04 PM

Hey to all!
Glorious, sunny Fall day in VA. What a great time of year. No frost on our particular pumkins yet, but some just to the north. Got to have the frost to get the Indian Summer.
Love to all!


ladymule - 10/8/2004 at 03:23 AM

Hello to all!

Maggie, we've had "Indian Summer" for the past two days...very warm air and sun...hope you get yours soon.

Jim, you're very welcome. Did you get to see the Brothers this year?

Colin, hello! and David is from Oklahoma. I don't know where Nicole resides.

petri, hope you have a great time tomorrow... As we might say in Canada, "Party On..."


MRJAMES1 - 10/8/2004 at 03:48 AM

Hi Ladymule,

Yes I did see the Bothers this year. Both shows at Red Rock. I have always wanted to go there. A Red Rocks trip has been "on the books" for almost twenty years now and I just planned it last minute. What a trip. Looking to go back next year and hopefully the Brothers will make it a multi-night stop again.

Then Rosemont and Rockford both locations are within a couple hours drive from my home. I made it to the pre-Rockford gathering and there are pictures of the clan in the fan photos. Rosemont was the highlight of the two shows. Enjoyed them all and can't wait until next year.

How about you? Did you catch the Brothers at any good spots this year?

Colin, I hope for everyone across the pond the ABB makes a trip over there!

By the way, great place for my 200th post.


MRJAMES1 - 10/8/2004 at 01:18 PM

I was just informed by my Government that since I am now categorized as a "Peach Pro", must taxes just went up.


MRJAMES1 - 10/8/2004 at 01:20 PM

Oops, almost forgot,

Good Morning Everyone!!

Have a great weekend.


harvey - 10/8/2004 at 04:26 PM

The day is done - Friday night is here - I think a few brews might be in order this evening - catch you later on Guys & Gals, but I don't guarantee being very co-herent Enjoy the rest of your day and have a great weekend everybody


petri - 10/8/2004 at 04:51 PM

Hello everyone!

petri, hope you have a great time tomorrow... As we might say in Canada, "Party On..."


Thanks Kim, I will... or actually, I am... Our institute is celebrating it´s 95th anniversary and banquet is well on the way. Have cracked open a few brews and feeling already dizzy...

Have a great time Petri - Perseet olalle


Colin, your Finnish is perfect and you hit the nail in the head.

MRJAMES1, congrats for your new rank!

Oh dear, I´m feeling thirsty, gotta have a beer... Bye for now.

Cheers!


ladymule - 10/8/2004 at 11:49 PM

Happy weekend right back at everybody!

Jim, congrats on your new "pro" status! And thanks for sharing it with us! Wow, you've had a Bro filled summer. Unfortunately, they didn't come to Toronto this year and I didn't make it to the States, so no show/s for me. However, I tried my darndest to make up for it by seeing a few other legends like Little Feat, The Doors , Van Morrison etc. I feel a bit deprived but I think I can live with it until next summer. Hopefully, they'll make it here then. Also, the Mule will be here Oct. 24 and I will be there unless some unforseen disaster interferes with my plans. Please God... NO!!. Will you be seeing the Mule?

BTW, I checked out the Rockford pics. It's nice to see you and it looks like you and the gang were having a great time. Were there no sisters there?!


petri, I'm guessing it is about 12:30 am Saturday in Finland. Are you still partying on?!


Purple69 - 10/9/2004 at 04:58 PM

So now....weekend, party, a few brews, goin`to concerts....i wish you all havin`a good time......and the rain falls gentle along with the northwinds here, it`s dark already......have a good time, my friends


lyricwriter - 10/9/2004 at 06:00 PM

Hey Kim, have a great time at the Mule on the 24th!
I saw them at Roseland in NYC back on the 13th and they were great!!
Don't worry, no disasters will strike, you'll get to go

Ut oh, I think Colin and Petri are having too many beers!

Alright Neil, what the heck is a gorn?

Cool, crisp, sunny, fall day today...

Good Monday morning to you all!

How are you all doing, I hope everything´s fine. I survived Friday...

Kim, don´t laugh but I stopped partying at 8.50 pm and headed home... The kids have no mercy on me the morning after boozing so I´d better be alive and well... And besides I was so doggone tired on Friday that I was on the brink of catatonia. But our banquet was a success.

It´s a beautiful, chilly autumn day here, the sun is shining. And the weather forecast has promised warmer temperature for this week.

To be continued...

Cheers!

Good evening everybody!! Another wet day here in Mongolia ,, listening to Soul Sacrifice /El Morocco ,,trying to get my groove ,,lol and I think I found it....... gotta go jam with Carlos.......................later

Good October Morning to everyone!!

Another Fall classic going on here.

Harvey, I am hoping everything will be completed this week.

Farmer Maggie, Petri, Enzo, lyricwriter, Ladymule (10/24 good for you!), Purple69 & everyone else have a great day.

I have to admit it's getting better, it's getting better all the time...

And good morning to you all, very nice crisp and sunny day here. I hope you are all enjoying what you´re doing at the moment. I guess most of you folks in the States are still sound asleep... ZZZZZZ....

Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening (depending where you live)

A new day, a new adventure and a new outlook.
May your travels bring you fortune today.

Hey Kim,

Picked up a ticket for 10/22 Mule, I'll let you know how it the show was. It will be a warm up to the jamming show they plan on perfoming on 10/24.

Enjoy!

harvey - 10/14/2004 at 04:00 PM

Good day my friends . . . . . feeling a bit under the weather today so I've taken a CP - er - I mean "sicky" off work . Funny mood - bored with doing nothing but don't feel like doing anything either - guess I'll just have to have myself a hot toddy and put on some of "our" favourite tunes

Hope everybody else is having a nice one - best wishes to you all,

Love & Peace, Colin


harvey - 10/14/2004 at 04:05 PM

By the way Jim - I hope you have a great time at the Mule show - now if only you could have a word in Warren's ear and persuade him to bring the Mule over to Europe next year - you would make a lot of people on this thread very happy

Cheers my friend


petri - 10/15/2004 at 11:05 AM

Good afternoon everyone!

Colin, get well soon. I also feel like a flu coming...

I´m going to crack open a few cold beers tonight and relax after the kids are put to bed. I wish you all a great weekend, see you all next week!


harvey - 10/15/2004 at 12:19 PM

Hi everybody. Petri, thanks for the get well wishes, still not feeling 100% but today it is quite convenient as I am having a new PC delivered to my home So finally I will be able to burn shows at home instead of having to borrow a friends computer

It might take me a while to get EAC set up and work out how to use it, but once I do I will give away a lot of freebie shows to pay back the kindness that has been shown to me this year.

Whilst on the subject of trading, up in the Trades Lounge somebody asked about peoples backgrounds - ancestral heritage etc and I posted mine, so I thought as most of us here are from different countries it would be nice to share it with you here too. So my brief history is as follows . . . . .

I'm English (surprise, surprise!!!). I am originally from the county of Norfolk, having been born in Great Yarmouth, a small town on the east coast of England that was originally famous as a fishing town but now it relies totally on summer tourism for income. My Grandfather (on my Mothers side) was in fact a Fisherman on a Drifter (type of small fishing boat - crew of 4 or 5) fishing for Herring in the North Sea.

When I was 9, we moved 20 miles inland to the City of Norwich, which is where I lived until I went to London to study Civil Engineering at University. Upon graduation I took a job (designing bridges) in the Town of Reading, which is 40 miles west of London, and I have been here ever since (28 years now) - still working for the same company.

With regards to my historical origins, the county of Norfolk was once ruled by the Vikings and my surname, Harvey, was originally Harveg - a Viking name, so I guess I probably have a few unknown distant relatives in Minnesota (LoL) - you never know Petri even we may be distantly related.

Well, guess thats all for now folks - have a great weekend everybody


CanPeach - 10/15/2004 at 02:14 PM

Morning everyone, have a great weekend all


MRJAMES1 - 10/15/2004 at 02:24 PM

Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening to all!

Harvey, I hope you feel 100% soon. Good luck with thte new computer. If I get close enough to the stage I'll pass Warren a message. Suprise will be going out next week to atleast 5 .

Cold and rainy here, but I do love October.

Have a get weekend.


harvey - 10/15/2004 at 03:59 PM

New PC has just arrived - going off-line now to try to set it up - I may be some time

I know how you feel, it`s now only 10 months that i learned how to burn cd-r, to use flac and shn, to work with EAC..... but you`ll like it.....think of all the sweet music that will get in...good wishes to you, btw have you hear of Ian Rankin ? I just read a few novels by him and they were great.....


ladymule - 10/16/2004 at 02:56 AM

Erik, you've become quite the computer wiz... Good for you! I hope you are enjoying the sun today. I've got cloud, cool air, occasional sun and rain.

Petri and Colin, hope you are both feeling better soon. And Colin, enjoy your new computer.

Jim, I don't know, you guys don't look too scary to me! Maybe it was a male bonding thing!
So, you'll be seeing the boys in Chi Town on the 22nd. Have a wonderful time! Please do let me know how the show was. I'm hoping to hear some or all of my favourite tunes from the new disc: Little Toy Brain, Silent Scream, Perfect Shelter and New World Blues. It's been two years since I saw them in Toronto, so I'm feeling very grateful and excited!


Peace and love to all, from your Irish and Swiss, Pennsylvania Dutch Mennonite friend from Southern Ontario, Canada...


FarmerMaggie - 10/18/2004 at 06:32 PM

Hello ALL!
Our comp crashed(sort of)last Sunday and a week later is still not proper. My firewall is too high(lucky thing?) and navigation is sooooo sloooow. Waiting for TykeGeekWizardGuru to come down from the local mountain on his bicycle(too young to drive!).
Hope everyone is well and happy! If you're used to a flu shot and SOS this year, check out some Elderberry's but do your homework first(read the info).
Cold today with a touch of grey.
Hey Kim! Pics are on the way!
Love to ALL!
Maggie

I'm doing the late night catch up on the reading and see all the interesting things I've missed. So it's dark here but but the sun is shining somewhere. And it's almost 4:20!


harvey - 10/21/2004 at 03:52 PM

Hi everybody - just leaving off work and I am finally going to get around to sorting out my new computer at home tonight - I had planned to do it last weekend but my wife reminded me of certain other chores - ah well

To all you fellow Europeans - check out the excellent offer by our friend Jim (MRJAMES1) on the Trades section - he is offering the entire Fox run free to the first 5 Europeeps to sign up.

JIM - YOU ARE THE MAN

... and finally the weather ... lovely autumn day, blue skies and sun shining brightly on the leaves of the trees which are turning their usual beautiful autumnal hue


petri - 10/22/2004 at 07:54 AM

Hello everyone!

Bearable weather here in Finland, no rain but cloudy with occasional sunbursts... Colin, you still got leaves on the trees in England? You lucky b******s! Here the trees are almostl bare, just a few dirty yellow leaves here and there, well, except the pines and spruces, of course. The darkness sets in earlier and earlier each day (I mean the diminishing daylight, not my mental condition).

Colin, I got your PM, thanks, will PM to you soon...

Kim and Enzo, thanks for your congrats... And good vibes and love to you ALL.

To be continued...


petri - 10/22/2004 at 12:49 PM

I promise after I am done with the Fox trade,we will be trading some shows.

Mule in Chi-town tonight!!

Have a great weekend! I know it has started for some of you.

Happy weekend to you, my friends! Ta-daa....

Beautiful Sunny Fall Day and Happy Sunday to all.

Kim, Have a great time at the Mule show tonight!!

Today will be my last waterski run of the season (bbrrrrr)

Still a couple of spots left on my offer, so if you know someone who needs the show let them know.

Thanks & Enjoy


FarmerMaggie - 10/25/2004 at 06:12 PM

Hello all!

Hey Kim, hope you had a great show!

Today is the first time we've had sunshine in 4 days. Beautiful fall day.
The trees are in their last blaze of glory, but the mountains are blue. We aren't race fans, but the culture is everywhere here, and you can feel the grief in the air.
Blessed be.

Speaking of blue, Jim, did you have a blue moon last night?


FarmerMaggie - 10/25/2004 at 06:22 PM

on a brighter note...


Purple69 - 10/25/2004 at 09:12 PM

Could you please tell Warren to carry that Mule over the water, my dear friends
Musta be quite funny to see that little Horse ride thru the Austrian mountains ......
Hey i`m gonna teach him a lesson in skiing....for free tell him


raven - 10/26/2004 at 05:02 AM

Warm, Humid down here in NZ.
Hope everyone has a good week.


ladymule - 10/27/2004 at 12:44 AM

Happy fall, all! ...even though I've had a gloomy sky and rain for a few days now...


James and Maggie, thanks for the good wishes! Erik, I'm sorry but I didn't talk to Warren at all--after standing for about six hours, I didn't want to wait another hour at the bus. The car ride home was calling my name! Sorry, bro! Maybe you should try to "start a riot" for a Euro Mule tour in the Warren Forum!

Of course, the show was smokin'! I stood front row centre and, um, got my @$$ kicked!! They played a few of my faves: Fallen Down, Blind Man In the Dark, Tastes Like Wine, and New World Blues. Also, got a 1st set, set list and a Matt Abts stick! All in all, a much needed and appreciated dose of the Mule!!


Hey raven, nice to see you here. Enjoy that warm, humid weather while we get ready for snow and freezing air!!

Peace and love to all...


Enzo - 10/29/2004 at 02:27 AM

hey ,,hey ........ sure wish it would rain for about 5 -6 days!! Air is warm and thick,,, feels like the Amazons in Oklahoma.... skitters are still buzzing around lOOking for a taste of somebody ,,,musta smacked 5 or six of them varmits this morning,,, little suckers too ,, with a big sting ,,, ok enuff of that ..... SHOW ME THE SUN!! heck ,,I'll take snow too!!
I'm out.................................David


MRJAMES1 - 10/29/2004 at 01:01 PM

To everyone who was kind enough to jump in on the Fox freebie I offered last week.

Well the good news is the shows will be in the mail today.

The bad news is.. Well there isn't any!

Have a great weekend, I will be raking leaves and passing out candy. Now-a-days it isn't candy for the little kiddies, it is more like a form of house insurance so your house does not get egged or "TP'd" after dark. Those little rascasl!

Enjoy!


MRJAMES1 - 10/29/2004 at 01:03 PM

Kim,

Glad you had a great time at the Mule show. I will keep an eye out for you if your show is offered up.

A gorgeous day in VA..
Sunny and warm, almost 80' here.
My Pops assures me we have had a real frost but that I just slept through it, so we have an official Indian Summer.

And on a serious note...
to the Spiritual folks among us, take the time to pay homage to your ancestors, the folks that made you possible. Or even people you learned something from but that have moved on.
Chances are, if you parents didn't have children, neither will you...


ladymule - 10/31/2004 at 03:56 AM

Hey all!

A stormy, sunny, windy and warm day here. Unsettled but very warm! Unfortunately, cool air has moved in again. Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.



Jim, happy raking this weekend! That's a job I have yet to do, nor have I done the eavestroughs. Hopefully I'll get to them next week. And have a nice time with the kiddies. We hardly get any these days--I don't think we got even one child last year! I always buy my favourite chocolate treats cause I know I'll be eating most of them.

Thanks very much for keeping an eye out for the Toronto Mule show for me! I did see some tapers there but I don't know if they post to this site. A guy I know who always tapes the TO shows was there but not taping because his plan is to download the show. He hung out with us down front. Here is some evidence that the opportunity to download is affecting the taping situation.



Maggie, happy Hallowe'en to you too! Thanks for the Hallowe'en eye candy and for your spiritual self!


David, don't let the varmits get you down! Hope you see the sun SOON!

Peace and love to all!


FarmerMaggie - 11/1/2004 at 03:18 PM

Hey to all!
Happy first day of Celtic Winter!
And All Saint's Day!

Today is sunny and warm and not at all like the poem:
No Sun
No flowers
No birds
November!

(or something like that)
However, we have birds all winter long. There are several berried bushes in our yard providing good food. We don't even stock our feeders until the first snow. The birds know, too. They will sit in the apple trees over the feeders at the first little accumulation and chatter as if to say "What's taking you so long?" They don't even move when we approach. No sign of that happening anytime soon!
The color in the trees has lasted so long this year. There are still many in full glory today. This is unusual because most years the first of November here looks just like the old FleetwoodMac album cover Bare Trees.

The kids had a wild(sugar buzzzzzz) time last night. They are just now to the age that we can unleash them 'unsupervised' on the neighbors! We did however, take the little car out and drive around to check up on them! They 'appear' to still be good kids!

Have a great week everybody!
Off to enjoy...
Another glorious day in VA!
Love to all!

Happy November everybody - had a nice sunny weekend but cloudy and damp today

Petri - sorry not to have replied to your Pm yet . . . been real busy at work and at home lately. I got EAC downloaded but haven't yet figured out how to use the damned thing . . . everytime I try to sit down and go through the tutorial my Wife finds me another job to do around the house that she thinks is more important

Hope to get it sussed out this week so I can burn some practice shows for freebies to people in return for all the kindness thats been shown to me.

Have a great week everybody


CanPeach - 11/2/2004 at 02:21 PM

Morning everyone

harvey, have you got wood for your bonfire yet? Thats if you still that stuff on November 5, always remember those November nights and fireworks


harvey - 11/2/2004 at 04:43 PM

Hey CP . . . how's it going ? . . . is your back ok now ?

Yes, we still stuff our old clothes with straw to make a "Guy" and stick him on top of a pile of firewood and set alight to him while watching a firework display on Nov 5th . . . but because of Health & Safety Regulations it tends to be organised displays at City Parks these days rather than one on every street corner like when we were kids.

I grew up in Great Yarmouth on the East Coast and I can remember going down to the beach on Nov 5th when I was a kid and there would be bonfires and fireworks every hundred yards along the beach for as far as the eye could see . . . magical childhood memories.

Best wishes to all


CanPeach - 11/2/2004 at 05:35 PM

Feeling better thanks

When I was a kid in the old country, we used to be able to build bonfires in our own back yard

Lot more freedom back then, its like my son's school, with all the things they can't do at recess, i wonder how they find time to have any fun


petri - 11/5/2004 at 08:33 AM

Good morning to you all!

It´s been a busy week for me, haven´t had time to be very active around here.

The weather is lousy here in Finland, grey, damp, rainy and dull... We´re heading towards the winter depression time

Well, the great thing is that it´s only 7 weeks until it´s Christmas time. I am really waiting for the holiday and the opportunity to spend some "quality time" (nice term, isn´t it?) with my family, eating well and having some delicious winter brews...

Colin, don´t sweat, I have been busy as well and I will get back to you.

CanPeach, I´m still waiting for your discs to arrive for the BnP. If you want more Poco, just let me know...

It´s weekend around the corner so have a great one and enjoy yourselves!

Cheers!

Hi Folks,

Yesterday evening I saw on TV news and read on the paper this morning about a terrible train accident that happened near where our brother Colin lives (Reading, England). Let us all send him our deepest sympathy and good vibes in honor of all those that were injured or lost their lives in that accident. Peace.


FarmerMaggie - 11/8/2004 at 03:16 PM

Hello, Monday.
I'm glad I'm here to see you.
Be a kind day today.
Go easy on ones who are feeling blue.
Take their paths through comforts way.
Blessed be.

Hi all...

Okay, it's cold, dark too early and I've seen snow twice already. I don't like it. Where's my summer gone?! Anyone else seen snow?

Hope y'all are warm and cozy!


petri - 11/12/2004 at 09:17 AM

Hello everyone,

And happy Friday, it´s another weekend around the corner. Seems it´s always Friday when I find time to scribble something here... Been busy...

Hi Kim, nice to see you! No snow yet here in Finland but dark and wet and very windy today, kinda depressing... But it´s been promised dry weather and maybe a little sunshine for the weekend. Yeah, who else has seen snow already? Where´s Erik, he could tell us all about the snowstorm that stopped traffic in Austria this week.

Luckily it´s warm inside... I´d better continue my work. Bye for the time being, my friends.

Cheers!





[Edited on 11/12/2004 by petri]


harvey - 11/12/2004 at 01:05 PM

Happy Friday everybody No snow here, then again we rarely get much snow in the south of England . . . maybe a couple of inches in January or February

One more week to go before my vacation . . . and I certainly don't expect to see any snow in the Costa Rica Rainforest . . . but I guess it might be a bit wet

Petri - I still haven't got EAC set up . . . I got as far as downloading it off the web but haven't had the time to go through the tutorial that shows you how to configure it properly . . . too much to do around the house before the vacation so I just haven't found the time I have a week off work between Xmas and New Year however, so I plan to get stuck into it then . . . so perhaps we can set up some more trades then

Have a great weekend everybody . . . Love & Peace, Colin


petri - 11/12/2004 at 02:23 PM

Colin, no hurry... And let me wish you a splendid vacation beforehand, enjoy yourselves!

Happy weekent to you ALL!

Cheers!


petri - 11/14/2004 at 12:52 PM

It´s Fathers´ Day here in Finland. Happy Fathers´ Day (to me... )
Got a lovely awakening from my wife and kids, cards and presents... feels great. We are going to have some coffee and cake soon. Greetings to all Farhers around the world!

Cheers!


MRJAMES1 - 11/14/2004 at 03:18 PM

Sorry I have not poked my face in here for a while, been busy getting ready for the cold winter season . But the good news is with every passing day we are more close to the next warm & beautiful season. Happy Father's day Petri and everyone else enjoy some Peaches and Sunshine.


Enzo - 11/15/2004 at 02:50 AM

nothing like a good warm fire going ,,on a rather cold rainy day......... thoughts to those who are without heat and shelter.......


ladymule - 11/15/2004 at 03:44 AM

Happy Sunday everyone!

Still very cold here but SUNNY!! today. Clear sky with bright stars right now...


Petri, Happy Fathers' Day! We celebrate it in June. And very nice to see you too!

Jim, thank you for your forward looking and hopeful message. It will be good to keep in mind {if I can} when I am shovelling snow day after day after day...

Colin, happy holidays! Be safe and happy. Have one for me, please!

David, you've got a warm fire going? Sounds lovely... Hope you are doing fine, fine, fine in Oklahoma.

Erik, where are you bro?! I miss you. Please drop in and say hello. Hope all is well with you and yours.


petri - 11/15/2004 at 08:45 AM

Happy Monday ALL,

Thanks for the congratulations, I was king for a day but now the party´s over and the reality hits hard... "Welcome to the working week", as Elvis Costello used to sing a long time ago. "Busy bodies, busy busy"... (another Costello gem).

Cheers!

Hey everybody!
It's our time to be Thankful for turkey and tryptophan....

Wet today.
More than just a touch of grey.
Even so, it's a beautiful day.
The family in here spans the world around...
Proving that peacful love and common ground
When properly sought, can always be found.
So much love in the air!
It prompts me to share,
This cute little turkey I 'stole' from somewhere...

Hello to everyone!

I wish all my American friends a very happy and safe Thanksgiving!

The Eastern storm is hitting us with freezing rain and snow. So far, it's not too bad though. Hope all is well with everyone in storm country. I'm thinking about y'all.

Peace and love...

Hello everyone,

Greetings from wintery Finland. Not much action around here, where is everyone? Well, Colin is somewhere in the rainforests but the rest of you... I hope you haven´t become too depressed by the winter.

I got back from a short holiday, drove all the way to north-eastern Finland (500+ kilometers drive in one direction) to visit my wife´s parents and also to meet my kids´ cousins. Had a wonderful week in the country. But now it´s back in the rat race, fortunately it´s coffebreak soon...

Cheers!


petri - 12/3/2004 at 01:33 PM

Hi Petri, nice to see you around. Do you know where everyone else is? Oh, you don´t, neither do I...

Hello to ALL, and have a nice weekend. I´ll be away on Monday, we have a day off because it´s the 77th Independence Day of Finland. Please, raise a toast with me for Finland on Monday. Thanks brothers and sisters.

Cheers!

Glad you both had nice holidays {one cold, one warm!}. Cheers to Finland's 77th year of Independence! From what country have you achieved independence? Please forgive my ignorance!


Generally, it's just short, cold days here without much sun. We haven't had enough snow to shovel. However, in anticipation of the banks that will surely come, I decided to get a snow-blower. I'm not shovelling my life away this winter! I'll let you know how it goes. Oh no....another contraption to understand and take care of!!

Hi Petri,

hope you had a nice break...happy 77th Independence day. I'll crack a coldie to help celebrate!!!


petri - 12/7/2004 at 03:03 PM

Hello everyone,

Nice to see you around and thanks for celebrating the Independence Day with me, brothers and sisters. I noticed an EMBARRASING typo: it should have been 87th independence day, not 77th... And I have a degree in history, jeez... I was never good in maths, LOL.

So we celebrated our 87th day of independence, Finland had its declaration of independence in December 6th, 1917. Very grave and sober celebrations, students marching with torches to the graveyards and people lighting candels in their window panes to honor the memory of those who fought both in words and arms for our freedom in 1917-1918 and in WW II. OK, we fought on the wrong side in WW II, allied with Germany 1941-1944 - we were never a nazi nation, just opportunists IMO, LOL. You couldn´t have had a strong labor movement in a corporative country. And we lost the war against the former Soviet Union but the main result was that we were never occupied by the Soviet army and didn´t become a "people´s republic". And in WW II the Finns fought united - from the communist worker to the right wing conservative - against the enemy.

quote:
From what country have you achieved independence?

Hi Kim, we achieved our independence from Russia in December 6th, 1917. Russia itself had had its revolutions in March and October (according to the old Julian calendar), and in the last revolution V.I. Lenin with communists seized the power and Russia was in the state of anarchy. The Finnish parliament seized the opportunity and declared Finland´s independence from Russia but they had to wait Lenin´s and co. acceptance for it for couple of days. If your interested, we were part of the Kingdom of Sweden in ca. 1155-1809, but they lost a war against Russia and had to give up whole of Finland to Russia. So after that we were an autonomic part of the Russian Empire in 1809-1917. We Finns are fiercly proud of our nationality and independence!

OK, now you can all wake up, our short history lesson is over... LOL. Thanks for the apples.

Cheers!


ladymule - 12/7/2004 at 11:56 PM

Hi all!

Rain today with a wee bit of sunshine...better than snow!


Petri, thanks for the history lesson! And I'm glad you enjoyed your day!

CanPeach - 12/10/2004 at 08:18 PM

We had snow here on Monday, but the rain has since washed it all away. Been awhile since we've had a white Christmas here in this part of Canada.

Everyone thinks it snows here all winter...not the case


ladymule - 12/11/2004 at 07:33 AM

Hey All!

Thanks David, and glad you have some sun and a winning team!

CPeach, we got a dusting of snow tonight. The less snow the better for me--so far, so good!


CanPeach - 12/12/2004 at 02:49 AM

snowed today, on the ground still but not much. Put the tree up today


ladymule - 12/13/2004 at 04:13 AM

harvey - 12/14/2004 at 01:56 PM

Just joking Kim

Hello to all my friends here . . . I got back from my vacation last Friday but have been so busy catching up with things at home and at work that I have not had much chance to stop by . . . hope you are all keeping well

My vacation to Costa Rica was absolutely wonderful . . . the best I have ever had. The first week was spent touring around the North and East of the country exploring the Rainforests both on foot and by boat. One of the jungle lodges we stayed at could only be reached by a two hour boat ride . . . really peaceful. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary on the Wednesday of the first week and it was really cool to wake up in the middle of the forest to the sound of the Howler Monkeys and share our breakfast with Toucans.

We then flew by light aircraft to the West (Pacific) coast to spend the second week in a hotel on the beach. The friday of that week was my Wife's birthday, so I booked us on a sunset cruise on a small sailing ship and we were lucky enough to have Dolphins come and swim at the side of the boat for half an hour.

Finally we returned to the capital for a few days and went on some more one day excursions before flying home to reality Ah well . . . I guess it will soon be Xmas and we have lots of wonderful memories

Best wishes to all, Colin.


petri - 12/14/2004 at 04:30 PM

Hello everyone,

Only 10 days 'til Christmas - that´s the way we count it. We'll bring out the presents in the evening of 24th of December and have a feast: eat a lot and drink moderately

Colin, nice to see you and welcome back! How the time flies, it feels like it was last week you went for your holiday... Glad to hear that your holiday was a success.

Cheers everyone!


harvey - 12/15/2004 at 11:40 PM

Hmmm, surely we are no more or less fickle than Gentleman bass players or Gentleman engineers...ok, maybe less!

Seriously though, you were away! I do read English you know.

But now you've returned and I'd like to say HELLO and welcome back COLIN !!

What a sumptuous, adventurous and romantic holiday you've had! I'm glad you both had such a wonderful time.

Hi, dear S&B! I wasn't here for a long, long time. Any news? Are you all O.K.? (I hope so! ).
We have to change location! Back to the "Peaches and snow"! (Am I right, dear bro Purple69? )
I wish to all of you merry Xmas and all the best things! (First of all a lot of ABB music! )

Hey there Zeka . . . where have you been hiding my friend? . . . in a sound booth with non-stop ABB playing if I know you

Happy Xmas to you too and best wishes for 2005, Colin

Welcome back Zeka! Yeah, I'm ready to go over to the Snow thread. It was -30 C {with wind chill} yesterday. MOST inhospitable!!!

Erik hasn't been posting--too busy--so you may not get a reply from him.


harvey - 12/21/2004 at 08:23 AM

It even got down to -2 Celcius here last night . . . but I don't care because I have Viking blood in my veins and the Winter Solstice is my birthday


ZekovicZoran - 12/21/2004 at 08:35 AM

Yes, I am here now. Hi, Colin! I saw that you are on-line now. Yes! You are right - ABB forever! Dear Lady, you are really super cool LADY. Here is now ONLY -6 C (Cold! BRRRRR! ). But, newt week I'll go at the place where snow is most important thing - winther sports at mountain Kopaonik. Maggie, great picture!
Be happy and well!!!
Best wishes to busyman Erik!!!


petri - 12/21/2004 at 02:10 PM

Hello Zeka, nice to see you around. As it's nice to see you Colin, Kim, Maggie, DM and Yurte, the man from The Lounge and everybody else too numerous to mention.

- 7 C here in Finland and some snow on the ground for a change. Last time I wrote it was all black here... I suppose we're getting a white Christmas after all. Today I'm going to get our Christmas tree and then do some cleaning around the house... Oooo, I just can't wait.

My daughter Aura turned 9 months "old" yesterday and took her first two steps today without taking a hold of anything. She's been standing up and walking taking a hold of sofa or chairs etc. for some time now but now she's starting to really walk. I'm so proud. And at the same time I think who quickly the time flies... My eldest one, son Pyry, is in the middle of crisis-of-being-3-years-old. He's real stubborn at the moment - but again, that's part of growing up. He's so lovable, such a little joker who loves music. Santa's gonna bring him a mouth-organ, I know that...

Two days until it's Christmas... wonder what's Santa's got for me, I've been a good boy... or at least have tried to be. OK, gotta go, more of this blabber later on.

Cheers!

Zeka, brrrrrrrr...

Petri, thanks for sharing your pride and love for your children. I enjoyed hearing about them.
BTW, I'm sure you're not on Santa's Naughty list so he'll have something special for you!


harvey - 12/21/2004 at 11:58 PM

Good evening everyone . . . thanks for the birthday wishes Neil & Kim, I've had a nice day thank you (if writing could be slurred drunkenly, believe me that this message would be incoherent!). Petri, I sure hope my present gets to you in time for Christmas . . . have a wonderful time with your family.

Talvipäivänseisaus sounds like an extinct reptile to me (LOL) . . . cheers Petri


CanPeach - 12/23/2004 at 01:06 PM

Morning Colin, hows the weather over there? We got a big snowfall last night, about 8 inches, but its supposed to rain later

Watched Scrooge last night with Alistair Sim, always makes me homesick for the old country

When my son Dylan watched the movie he asked if that was what it was like when I was a boy in England

How old does he think I am?

Cheers and Merry Christmas


harvey - 12/23/2004 at 01:13 PM

Afternoon Neil . . . grey clouds overhead today but it is not raining . . . dropping down below zero °C at night now and we may get some snow for Christmas on the high ground . . . not where I am in the Thames Valley but up on the Pennines near your home town of Sheffield they may get a White Christmas

I grew up in Norfolk and I seem to remember snow up to the top of my wellies most years . . . mind you I was little and so were the wellies (LOL)

Hope you and yours have a great time at Christmas . . . like you I am looking forward to a great week of sport next week as much as anything else .

Have a cold one for me, Cheers, Colin.


petri - 12/23/2004 at 01:39 PM

Hello Colin, hello Neil, hello ALL!

Colin, Santa has visited my mailbox yesterday... THANKS THANKS THANKS.

Heavy snowfall yestrday evening and at night, gotta do some shoveling once I'll get home.

Otherwise everything else starts to be in order for Xmas festives except that I have to roast the pork tonight... and have some "roasting beers" while tending that task. I'll be away until January 5th, 2005 so I want to wish everybody a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!

Cheers!

The ony thing white at christmas time here in Tampa is the sand on the beach.

harvey - 12/28/2004 at 01:32 AM

Well Neil . . . the good news for me is that I don't go back to work until next Tuesday 4th Jan . . . the bad news is that my Wife goes back tomorrow and she seems to have found me a list of things to do around the house . . . are well . . . i can iron and watch TV at the same time I guess


CanPeach - 12/28/2004 at 08:41 PM

Colin, I found the secret is to watch sports on tv all day and clean one thing that really stands out, doesn't have to be anything big...just say "honey, I thought the kitchen floor needed cleaning" or "The microwave was looking dirty".

Only takes a few minutes to clean but she will appreciate it.

My other trick is to skive off all day then before my wife comes home, turn on that damn vacuum cleaner (I hate the sound of those machines)

I'm glad my wife doesn't read this site

Have fun on your days off


harvey - 12/28/2004 at 11:36 PM

petri - 1/10/2005 at 02:19 PM

Hello and happy new year to you all,

Not all peaches and sunshine for me though, I'm not feeling to upbeat at the moment...

Tsunami tragedy in Asia touched many people here in Scandinavia Finland included, nearly 200 Finnsih tourists are missing and presumably dead, among them my second cousin and her three little children... A great tragedy where children lost their parents or vice versa or whole families were washed to the sea. Not to mention all the losses that the natives suffered, over 150 000 dead.

And just before Xmas one of my best friends lost his litte 4-year-old daughter after a long time illness... That thing really hit me hard, I feel so sad and bad about it. I hope you can send some good vibes for my friend in his pain and suffering. Thanks friends.





harvey - 1/10/2005 at 05:02 PM

Hello Petri . . . I hope this new year starts off better for you than the last one finished. My sincere condolences to you on the loss of your cousin and family . . . I am so sorry for you. there are 50 british confirmed dead and 400 missing presumed dead, but fortunately 3 of my friends (1 in Thailand and 2 in India) were spared.

As for your friend's little girl, there can be no words to console them, but I wish them well and hope that they can soon remember the happiness of her life with them over and above the pain of her departing.

Love and Peace, Colin.


CanPeach - 1/10/2005 at 08:04 PM

Sorry to hear all the bad news that you have had to endure to end the year.
My prayers go out to you and your extended family and friends.
I hope you and everyone involved can find peace in the coming months.
Take care.

Dear bro Petri, in this moment I am sad, too. It was unbelived tragedy for all world. But. life is go on, and we have to give all help to that poor people now. My country (not so rich country) sent two airplanes with all kind of neccessery things. Do we need such tragedies to united the world? I think we have many better ways!


petri - 1/11/2005 at 02:26 PM

Dear friends,

Thanks for your kind words and thoughts, they really mean much to me and my friend. I'm not feeling sorry for myself and it's difficult to really comprehend all this but when the tragedy - or tragedies in this case - personify themselves, when someone you know, even remotely, loses one's life, it moves you... And when you have small children of your own it really stops you on the tracks and makes you think about the life and the value of it. I wish I could be the best possible father to my kids and the best possible husband for my wife and show all my love to them, you'll never know when you have to leave...

Sorry, I have some difficulties to gather my thoughts but I hope I made my point. But as Zeka said, life goes on...

Thanks again and peace.


ZekovicZoran - 1/12/2005 at 09:46 AM

And now, a better things:
Dear Santa, thank you for your nice gift!
I can say that I'll be good again in this year (i.e., only Allman Bros. all year!)
Best wishes from cold and fogy Novi Sad!
Zeka


harvey - 1/12/2005 at 01:24 PM

Dear bro Colin, you are right! It is fantastic. I have some parts of FE concert, but at VHS. Your gift is something great. Marshall Tucker Band! I forgot that faces! But, I can say, only one word is a same as the best BAND at the world (you have to change only first two words to ALLMAN BROTHERS! Ha-ha!). Thank you again, and lot of love to you!
Of course, lot of love to all of you, dear S&B of Peaches And Sunshine (better Snow)!

Petri, I think I understand what you are feeling and thinking right now because I've lost a number of friends, including two of my oldest and dearest: one to suicide, the other in a car accident.

Their deaths taught me to say 'I love you' to more people in my life {and to say it more often}, to thank friends for including me in their lives and to be more fully conscious of how deeply I value my family and friends.

Lovin' good vibes to you and your friend, Petri. And to ALL!

Hello everyone!

First of all: Kim and Yurtle, thanks for you comforting words, they mean lot to me...

It's grey here in Finland, practically no snow at all, and temperature is about + 4 degrees Celsius so it's warm, LOL. Where's the proper winter with snow and cold weather? There are no outdoor skating rings in operation at the moment due to the lousy weather so I took my 3-year-old son skating to the only indoor skating ring (ice hall) in my home town and it was packed with people. But we had fun, it was the second time my son was on skates... He's getting better all the time, he's starting to stay up and not falling down all the time, LOL.

Usual hustle here at work, fortunately it's time to go home soon. Oh, these Mondays...

Happy beginning of the week to everyone!

Cheers!


CanPeach - 1/17/2005 at 05:23 PM

Hello petri, no snow here where I am in Canada if you can believe that

My son started skating at around age 5, but he didn't have any interest in it until he started playing hockey

Here it's cold but not so like in many of your cities. Waiting for springtime.
Yesterday was a terrific day at work and how it's possible to begin a new day?...just singing "i've got one more silver dollar..."

Hello petri, no snow here where I am in Canada if you can believe that

Neil, I can believe that if you believe that there's no snow in Finland (with the exception of Lappland). Helsinki, where I work, is totally lacking snow. But Helsinki has generally speaking always less snow than rest of the country because of the closeness of the sea. But I don't dig this, I wish we had a proper winter with snow and all...

For some reason my son has showed interest in skating and he's really looking forward to us going skating so I'm not pushing him to become a master icehockey player or anything, LOL. On the other hand he hasn't shown any interest in cross country skiing, and in that case he's just like me, LOL...

Welcome abroad johndrake and thank you for you kind words. I saw that you come from Napoli (Napels). I have visited Rome twice but that's unfortunatly all for the time being...

Cheers!

Woah.
It's been so long since I've been in here.
I came looking for the sunshine.

Petri, I had heard about your family's loss and wanted to let you know you had been in our thoughts. I didn't know about your friend's loss. Our hearts go out to them. The words you've shared, as well as others, like Kim's, have been better than sunshine today. I am reminded of why I love this forumfamily so much, and the these places we gather. To know all of you and share in your lives, the good and the bad, is a privilege. This place is part of what unites our global village. Here, the sky is a special hue of blue, because we share it.
Henry & I are also true believers that if you care for someone, anyone, you should let them know every chance you get. It makes the good times better and the bad times more bearable.

Much love, guys(&ladies). You ARE the Peace in our lifetime.

He&me

Dear bro Jim, congrats for your new rank!
One question: Your favorite movie? I think it is "Blues Brothers"! (The best movie ever!)
Best wishes from Novi Sad to all of you, dear S&B!


ladymule - 1/21/2005 at 05:26 AM

Hi everyone.

I just want all my friends to know that I don't know if I'll be posting here for a while. I don't really know. Things are not good for me and my family right now. My mother is very ill in the hospital. We found out on Tuesday that she has cancer and that it has metasticized. Today, we were told she probably has lung cancer because they see a shadow on the lung. Tomorrow, she is having an MRI to confirm this. All this has occurred very suddenly. It was just less than two weeks ago when she started to have difficulty breathing {due to Pleural Effusion}. And it all went from there.


Love y'all.....Kim



petri - 1/21/2005 at 08:23 AM

Good morning to you all!

Kim, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother's condition, my thoughts and prayers are with her and you and your family. I wish you all the courage and strenght to pull this through... My love to you and your folks.

Maggie, beautiful words and thoughts, I'm misty eyed again... You folks are the salt of the earth and the reason I hang out here. My love goes to all of you here on the forum.



harvey - 1/21/2005 at 08:24 AM

Kim . . . what can I say . . . no words can sooth the pain and fears you have right now . . . but I hope that the love and friendship that has developed here can in someway help you through . . . please continue to drop by when you can . . . my thoughts and prayers are with you . . . BIG HUG . . . Colin.


ZekovicZoran - 1/21/2005 at 08:37 AM

Dear sister Kim, you have to be strong now. I know how you feel. My story is a same. My dear mother had a cancer, too. She is not alive 16 years, but she is in my heart forever. Again, be strong.
With love,
Zeka


CanPeach - 1/21/2005 at 01:28 PM

Sorry to hear your news Kim, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Take care.

ladymule - 1/22/2005 at 05:30 AM

Dear friends,

Thank you so much for supporting me, my mom and our family with your kind and comforting words, thoughts and prayers, encouragement to be strong and courageous, hug, friendship and love.

I don't want to be a continuous bummer on the thread so I'll post if I have something uplifting or positive to offer. In the meantime, I'll 'lurk' and take pleasure and perspective from your sunshiny and peachy posts.

We got West's Best this week and have listened to a couple of the shows. ABB music helps too.

BTW, mom got a CAT Scan today, not an MRI.


Lots of love right back at y'all.......Kim


Enzo - 1/22/2005 at 05:15 PM

Morning everyone...is winter over yet?


ZekovicZoran - 1/25/2005 at 09:59 AM

At the end, a lot of snow in Novi Sad! As in all Europe and USA!
Hi to all, my dear S&B!


petri - 1/25/2005 at 03:37 PM

Good afternoon - or is it evening already? - to each and everyone!

The Big Architect in the Sky must've heard my pleas and arranged some snow here in Finland. It's been snowing for more or less 5 days now... -3 dergrees Celsius. Trees look wonderful when they're covered with snow. And my son loves to play in the snow. So Neil, winter is not quite over yet. Eventhough I kind of like winter, it still is too long in this part of the world. I dream of warm summer days and those endless days when the sun sets only for a couple of hours until it rises again... "peaches and sunshine", yeah!

Cheers!


CanPeach - 1/26/2005 at 03:52 AM

Evening petri...or morning maybe where you are

Snowing again here but not as bad as on the east coast (see photo below from yesterday). Taking a day off tomorrow, clear the driveway in the morning, then settle back with a hot cup of coffee and read the newspaper and hang out here while I listen to some warm music

Nice offer Petri . . . if anybody doesn't have it already I can thoroughly recommend the 1/28/71 show from the Filmore West . . . by coincidence I was playing that show just last weekend . . . it has excellent versions of Dreams and You Don't Love Me on it and Capt Skipper has worked his usual magic on the sound quality

Love,

Hello to all . . . and especially Kim . . . hope you are doing ok

& Zeka . . . no little package from Novi Sad . . . I didn't know I should be expecting one . . . I'll let you know as soon as one does . . . Glad to see you have taken advantage of Petri's generosity - that Filmore West show 01/28/71 is great


petri - 2/4/2005 at 02:16 PM

Hello evryone,

Long working week behind and weekend ahead, hooray! Let's toast for that.

Kim, thanks for your message, you got one from me. You are on our minds... love to you and your family.

Colin, thanks, I'm really looking forward to those shows... And I promise I'll finish your set soon soon soon

Looks like it's going to be a busy week ahead with all these freebie offers I made, LOL

Mule coming to Europe? Well, I have to keep my eyes open in case they come to Helsinki, Finland. Have to check that post on Anything Goes if they have a tour schedule. Hey Colin, if they come to Finland why don't you fly over here and we'll have a party, drown a pint or two... or six... And Colin, hope you got my PM, big thanks for the shows!

Kim, nice to see you around, love and good vibes to you...

The temperature has been up and down here in Suomi (Finland). Yesterday we had a real snowstorm and today it's a beautiful sunny day and the temperature is above zero Celcius. What's in store for tomorrow?

Well now, another working week nears its end and the weekend is here. Let's all toast for that! Until next week my friends.

ladymule - 2/20/2005 at 05:05 AM

Hey Colin, that's great news about you seeing Cream. Please let us know how you enjoy the show so we can enjoy it vicariously! I saw Jack Bruce in July 2002 at Massey Hall in Toronto. He and a bunch of other well known musicians {eg. Todd Rundgren} were doing A Walk Down Abbey Road, a tribute to the Beatles. In addition to the Beatles tunes, each musician would do a couple of his own well known tunes. Jack performed White Room and Sunshine of Your Love and brought the house down. He was a joy to hear and watch. I loved his playing and singing. After the show a bunch of us hung out at the Stage Door waiting for them to come out. Jack signed albums, pics and other stuff for quite a few folks. He signed the cover of my Gov't Mule The Deep End Vol 1 cd which I now have on display in our music room. Of course, Jack sang and played bass on Fool's Moon on that disc. So, maybe you could bring along something you would want signed, in case you want to hang out at the Stage Door and wait for the man/men.

As for me, I'm hanging in, taking it day to day. And thanks again for your support, Colin. You and all my friends here 'are a great bunch!'.

Be happy, friends!! Love y'all!

LexABB, I hope you feel better after you got what, about three pages of those out of your system.

With respect, do you think this is a machine gun or a running up your numbers thread? If not, are you trying to turn it into one?


harvey - 2/22/2005 at 08:31 AM



Yes Lex . . . there are plenty of threads around for artificially boosting your post numbers if that's what turns you on, please use one of those.

There is nothing wrong with posting smilies, its a valid way of making a comment when done in a restrained manner, such as Yurtle does, but this thread is visited by folks from different countries all over the world who because of the time zone differences are rarely on the site at the same time, machine gunning therefore makes it very difficult for us to keep in touch with each other.

harvey - 2/24/2005 at 08:56 PM

Hello Petri . . . sorry that I missed you . . . must have been the end of my lunch break

Glad you liked the Artwork . . . I've just finished some more this week for the shows that you sent to me recently, so I will email those to you tomorrow (Friday)

My Wife is away this weekend visiting her Mother, and while she is away she has asked me (that is told me in mens words ) to sort out the 300 digital photos I took in Costa Rica . . . get the light levels, sharpness and framing adjusted with "photoshop" and put them onto discs to take to the lab and get prints done. So I guess I will be spending 2 days at the computer looking at great photos, listening to great music and then going out in the evening for some cold beers. Now as weekend chores go, I have been tasked with worse jobs.

Hope you, and all our friends here, have a great weekend.

Peace and Love to all, Colin.

Good afternoon all!

Sunny day in Finland, nice brisk weather. I'm going to spend most of Saturday helping family friends to move (unpacking truck etc.). I know I'm going to be thirsty after that...
Sunday is my day of rest but won't go to church... I'm gonna take my son skating, it's our weekly ritual nowadays. And watch ABB Live at The Beacon Theatre 2003 DVD (maybe that's my church), bought it yesterday along with Rory Gallgher's Irish Tour 1974. I strongly recommend also this latter DVD, Rory is absolutely fantastic! DVD was without the regional code so it should be also playable in The States and Canada - grab it!!!

Colin, many thanks for the latest addition in my growing collection of artwork. Seems you've got a lot of work to do with that many digital photos. Remember to have enough refreshments at hand. What's you favourite brew (ale/lager), by the way?

Yurtle and Garry, so nice that you popped in here You're welcomed to visit here more often. Also special hellos to Neil in Canada, saw your hello about 3 pages ago but didn't have time to answer.

Kim, love and positive vibes to you... one day at a time...

OK folks, time to go. Have a nice weekend you all and enjoy!

Cheers!

Petri - you are very welcome for the artwork - I'm the first to admit that some are better than others . . . but a CD case looks naked without some form of cover so I'm gradually working my way through my collection trying to catch up.

With regards to Ales / Lagers . . . from a thirst quenching point of view I like continental Lagers . . . such as Stella Artois from Belgium, Kronenbourg 1664 from France or San Miguel from Spain . . . for a nice tasty brew however I may be biased but I don't think you can beat some of the English Ales . . . my favourite is Adnams Broadside from East Anglia where I was born and raised, but there are several others such as Gales HSB, Fullers London Pride . . . too many to name, but if you are ever over in England try to find out what is brewed locally in the area that you are staying because English Beers do not travel very well and the closer to the brewery that you drink them the better they taste

Terri, hopefully, Rowland would realise that there has only ever been one machine gun 'event' in this thread.

Just wondering if you saw the posts to you by me and Brofan on page 3 in the Instant Live thread in Anything Goes about obtaining Gregg's One More Try disc. Not sure if you ever saw them so I thought I'd mention them here.

Happy Days to All!

Good afternoon my friends!

It's continuing to be sunny here in Finland, very nice indeed. Yesterday it was absolutely corgeous weather, clear blue sky and the snowflakes were sparkling like millions of diamonds in the sunshine. I took my son skating as usual and he's doing very well, I'm real proud...

Colin, I am a great friend of English ales myself, I had Shepherd Neame's Bishops Finger last weekend. Fuller's London Pride is also excellent... could you believe that we actually have quite a good selection of bottled English ales here in Finland. And some pubs even serve real ale. In lagers I usually keep myself to the domestic ones, the Finnish beers are generally quite tasty.

Please folks, remember: no machine gunning. Also I'd hate to see this thread closed down. But I'm sure that won't happen...

HOT sauna - and I don't mean any seedy massage parlor here - but a REAL Finnish sauna. And after that a COLD beer

Hello my friends! Have any of you notion what a real sauna is like? The Native Americans had "sweating tents" and the idea of sauna is roughly the same: sweat, sweat and sweat and get the s**t out of your system. You feel like a new human being after sauna and achieve a very relaxing feeling. Almost every family has nowadays their own home sauna, some even two (summer cottages). See more at http://www.sauna.fi/

Hey Petri my friend . . . have you got the day off work today . . . or do you have a Sauna at work

I have a sauna twice a week after swimming on Monday and Friday evenings . . . sure makes you feel really clean

Hey Zeka . . . cold and wintery here too . . . but nothing a little Slivovic and a few ABB tunes couldn't cure


petri - 3/4/2005 at 10:52 AM

Hello everyone,

Nice to see you around Zeka, your surprise hasn't arrived yet, I'll let you know when it does. Thanks in advance.

Kim, best wishes tou you, always nice to see you around here.

Colin, I just found Pedigree Bitter in a food shop near my work, that's one of my old favorites. I couldn't resist myself... Too bad if you can't make the soccer game but it's better not to take any risks if the roads are icy.

It was clear blue sky and morning sunshine in Hyvinkaa but in Helsinki it's grey at the moment. The differences between morning and afternoon temperatures are getting quite big, it was -20 C in the morning and now it's -5 C. We are heading towards springtime...

I bought two new DVD the other day, Rory Gallagher's and Little Feat's Rockpalast gigs. I have this DVD craze going on after purchasing a player. I strongly recommend both DVDs, they are absolutely fantastic filled with good music. Rory's DVD is 222 minutes long and has his 1976 and 1977 Rockpalast gigs plus a 1979 "jam session". Little Feat's DVD is a bit shorter, "only" 74 minutes but a real treat from their 1977 gig.

OK, got to continue working. Have a nice weekend you all!

Cheers!

Dear bro Colin, did you think something about strong to drink (How do you know about our national product SLIVOVICA - did you try that "poison"?)
I saw that we are together here allways in the same time (my dear bros Colin and Petri). NICE!
And, I have to ask again: Where is our bro Purple69?

I have indeed tried that "poison" Zeka . . . and it sure does warm you up on a cold winters day In 1996 I worked in Bosnia . . . I am a bridge design Engineer and I was responsible for the design and supply of emergency bridges to open up the major roads after the war to enable supplies to get into the country. I travelled all over Bosnia and also went to some places in Croatia . . . Zagreb and Split . . . but did not get the opportunity to go to Serbia

There is another coincidence that I discovered this weekend . . . I went back to my home town where I grew up as a boy . . . the city of Norwich . . . and I discovered that it has adopted Novi Sad to be its twin city . . . so now we are officially "City Brothers" . . . how about that Zeka

Norwich!!! Yes!!! We are really brothers for many reasons. First of all as great ABB fans, after that your home town, and your job as Engineer (I am Engineer, too, but technology engineer). You have only to do your PhD thesis (ha-ha!). Novi Sad has another "twin" town - Modena in Italy (Anyone here froma Modena?)
Serbia is a nice country with nice people (Come to see!)
We need more SLIVOVICA, because it is very cold today (-5 C)

Hey everybody!

What's going on around here? I am online but my thingy says I am offline. And where is the list of members who are online??!! I really miss that list. I feel kind of alone and isolated! One of the nice things about this site is knowing who is online when you are and sending a Pm or posting and getting a Pm or post back to you. Now, you don't know who the heck is out there and I think it restricts opportunities for communication. Thoughts from anyone else? I hope this is just temporary. Why would Rowland want to take away the Who's Online box? I don't understand what the benefit would be to the site.

Anyway, lots of love to all....is anybody out there??!!


PS, Hi to CanPeach...it was very good to meet you and everyone else at the Dickey show. That was some smokin' show, eh?!!

Hey Maggie, {Ms. toasted fuzzy peach}!

Very good to see you in these parts. And if I'm not mistaken, I see you out there cause you were just posting in the lounge.

Thanks so much for your loving Birthday wishes Maggie. And you know we love you too.

ladymule - 3/13/2005 at 06:46 PM

Hey Neil, yeah, and when we were online and would get a Pm, we'd get a notification. I wonder if that is gone too. Ah well....

You have a good day too, Neil.

Good morning, dear S&B!
One question to bro Petri: Any problem with CD? Did you see our dear ABB on stage 14 years ago?
Have a nice day (as it is in Novi Sad)!
Zeka


Quinn - 3/15/2005 at 12:45 PM

enjoy your day


petri - 3/15/2005 at 01:02 PM

Hello my friends!

I'm away for a few days and what do I see, the old KCJimmy Lounge closed down... First I thought that it's funny to see KCJimmy thread pushed back so much but then the things began to become clearer... I'll toast for the old Lounge and for the new Lounge.

OK, so at least this thread is alive and not yet in danger of being closed down. I'll toast for that too.

Not much happening here, we've been blessed yet with another beautiful day, no sign of warmer weather, it's -20 C in the mornings and -7 C during the daytime. But we get more and more daylight each day. The sun is shining as I leave home for work and is setting as I get home again. What a difference to the days when you left home at dark and got back at dark.

Zeka, no problems with the CD, thanks again!

Cheers!

LOL, not any colder than usually, Colin my friend.

I'm going to meet two of my university buddies tonight here in Helsinki and we're going to a new Czech beer restaurant right in the middle of the city. I'm thirsty already... Got to watch my intake though, it's only mid-week and tomorrow I have to be at work as usual.

I wish a nice Wednesday to everyone!

Cheers!


harvey - 3/16/2005 at 05:19 PM

Mmmmmmm . . . Czech Beer . . . can't beat a good Budwar

I expect a full report in the morning Petri


CanPeach - 3/17/2005 at 02:50 AM

I guess that would be late night here


petri - 3/17/2005 at 09:05 AM

Good late morning my friends,

The Czech restaurant was closed because of a private party so we had to move our bones to the nearby Railway Tavern (in the central railway station) where I consumed a pint of Dark Star Old Ale (a real ale) and two large Pilsner Urquells and had generally a good time. Then caught a train back home, went to bed early and woke up with a stiff neck.

It was snowing in the morning and temperature has risen to -7 C. It's a grey day today... I should be working and I just don't have the energy...

Have a nice Thursday, see you!

hey harvey - when I've been to Ireland I drank only beamish and guiness. I discovered murphy's when I've been to london. Polish beers are great! There's a lot of them in London (btw. I hate that city!).

Bud sux (now you gonna kill me)

Hello Peaches,

Colin, Kim, Maggie, thanks for wishing happy birthday to my dear little Aura, Sunday was a lot of fun. Aura took only 1 hour nap before the first quests arrived but somehow managed to stay up whole day until it was bedtime and wasn't cross once, just all smiles and running around. No Colin, she didn't get Duane T-shirt this time but maybe a Eat A Peach T next year, LOL.

Have a nice start of the week you all!


petri - 3/21/2005 at 01:33 PM

Hello... quiet around here at the moment... oh yeah, it's morning or early morning in the States and Canada (east coast) and all the Europeans must be working very hard... Hmm, what should I do next? Should I move that paper in another pile or should I count the paper clips... yawn.

No . . . I'm not going to kill you . . . if you are referring to American Bud(weiser) then I fully agree with you . . . but I don't mind the Czech Budvar we get in bottles over here.

When I was in Prague last year I had a very nice Dark Beer . . . looked like Guinness but tasted sweet . . . and I also enjoyed other draught beers there . . . unfortunately I enjoyed them a little too much to be able to remember their names (LOL).

I was also in Wroclaw in Poland a couple of years ago and remember having a few decent brews there too . . . not to mention some of your excellent Vodka's . . . I particularly like the Cherry Vodka.

So everyone, enjoy your easter holiday and see you in a week and a half!

Hope everyone is having a lovely Easter weekend. I'm looking at a sunny blue sky. Spring has finally sprung in these parts. Three days ago the sky was grey, the air was bitterly cold and flurries were coming down. The past couple of days are a welcome change from winter.

Love to all...



PS, Petri, that lovely birthday message for your daughter was from pixielf {Peggy}, not me. Just thought I'd give credit where credit is due. Anyway, please accept belated birthday greetings from me for your precious daughter's 1st birthday.

Yes Neil . . . great game to watch . . . although one has to keep in perspective that it was only N. Ireland who are not one of the best sides around at the moment . . . never-the-less, 4-0 is a good score and the most important hing is that we played good football (sorry, should I call it soccer here so as not to confuse folks )

By the way Neil . . . your old home town team Sheffield Wedenesday look like they are going to make it into the play offs for promotion from the 3rd division up to the 2nd . . . I will keep you informed of their progress in the lounge when I see too many people posting Baseball stories

3d, here I be. How you be?

Hope all are well. Old man winter dropped by today. Brrrr.

Colin, just want to wish you the BEST time at the Mule show and at the pre-show get together. I know the gig is not till the 7th {right?} but I couldn't help but be motivated to wish you well early because of all your spirited posts on the other threads. I know what you are feeling cause I feel it myself when I see the Mule, or Dickey or the ABB or Derek--although it has been much too long since I've seen Derek or the ABB for that matter!! Don't forget to hang out at the bus if you want to say Hi and/or get something signed. The guys have always been most gracious to me.

Question for all...do your smilies work in your PMs? Since we got our "Who's OnLine" Box back after the Beacon run, I can't use my Pm smilies. Is this the case for anyone else?


ROWLAND, I MISS MY PM SMILIES!!

You're most welcome, Colin. I'll be with you in spirit on Thursday.


You're right, I have been absent {and thanks for missing me}. My mom {Kathleen} went back into the hospital March 8 {after being back at home for about 6 weeks}. She deteriorated steadily and passed in the hospital Sat. March 19. Thanks for your thoughts and concern. She's not suffering anymore and I'm hanging in. Please have a pint and a toast for her at the Mule show. Although she never saw the Mule, I think she'd like the band because she always had good taste in music and liked the Blues. We would take her to Toronto to see our/her favourite Dixie band. One time when we had the ABB playing in the car, she said, "Oh, I like that...". I think Gregg was singing a slow blues. Anyway, keep posting happy thoughts...for her, and for me.

Lots of love, Kim

Hello everyone, just got back from the wilderness...

Kim, my sincere condolences for the loss of your mother, my thoughts are with you. I wish you all the strenght in this sad situation.

And Kim, my apologies for the mix-up with the names... errare humanum est, I was in a hurry when writing that - and I hope Peg didn't mind my error. I do know both of you... but maybe I was thinking of you at that moment

Zeka, happy belated birthday to you. You are one year behind me, I'll be 44 in July (Oh my God, now I revealed my age...)

My little vacation came really in need, I had a wonderful time. Visited my wife's parents in the country and the kids loved it, especially my son Pyry, who enjoyed a tractor and a motor-sleigh rides with his Grandpa. I visited a record fair during my vacation and managed to grab some vintage vinyls... Now the kids have to starve for the rest of the month...

OK, nice to be back, enjoy yourselves. And Kim, once again, my deepest sympathies to you.

Welcome back, by the way, and I'm glad you had a good holiday.

Just want you to know that I wasn't picking on you or criticizing you for your attributing B'day wishes to me instead of Peggy. I made the point only because I wanted to give credit back to Peg where it belonged. I don't want any confusion between us on the issue.

Finally, Petri, thank you for your condolences and your care. Love to you...

Hello everyone, I've got that ol' springtime feeling in my heart The sun is shining and the snow is melting away fast fast fast.

Kim, I didn't take it as a critisism at all, I was just plain embarrased...

Colin, enjoy your Mule Day and let me/us know everything about the gig. By the way, getting on the bike wasn't bad at all, it's relatively warm up here at the moment.

For those who are interested I'm prepared to give away a great great show as a freebie, just PM me your address. The show in question is:

Jethro Tull - 01/09/1969 Konserthuset, Stockholm, Sweden (1 cdr)
Soundboard
Capt. Skipper's "Flying Finn Custom" remaster

1. Introduction
2. My Sunday Feeling
3. Martin's Tune
4. To Be Sad Is A Mad Way To Be
5. Back To The Family
6. Dharma For One
7. Nothing Is Easy
8. Song For Jeffrey

This is a show that I once sent to Skip, and he liked it and put some of his magic touch on it (= hard work) and voilá, you have an excellent show that sounds better than in the first place. So PM me, dear Peaches, and I'll start mailing you the shows.

Cheers!


petri - 4/8/2005 at 12:59 PM

Hello my friends,

Silent around here, where are you? Have you already started your weekend?

Hey, remember my Jethro Tull offer still stands, I'll be back again on Monday and check if there are any more requests for the show before I start mailing the copies.

Sunny but windy day (means that dust and old dogs**t is flying around). Otherwise it's nice around this part of the globe. But I'm really waiting for the summer.

Have a nice weekend you all, see you next week!

Cheers!

Evening all!

Very beautiful, warm {hot in the sun} day today. It was great to go 'outback' with a book and a beer and sit for a while in the sun.

Petri, you are so sweet to offer music to your Peach Pals!

Colin, glad {but not surprised } to hear you had such a great time at the London Mule show. Makes you want to hear them again and again doesn't it?! Did you have a favourite moment and/or song/s?

Enjoy your day, friends!


ZekovicZoran - 4/11/2005 at 07:37 AM

Hello, dear S&B!
I am waiting for member No. 50,000 (now is about 49,500). Only need address of that lucky sis or bro to sent a little gift.
Rainy day in Novi Sad (temperature only 6 C).
Have a nice day!

Good morning to everyone,

Sunny day coming... which is nice. You can literally see the snow (or whats left of it) melting away. My daughter Aura has a fever, I hope it's not influenza which has been around and is a tough case... My wife will take her to the doctor's today. Luckily others in our family have been spared from influenza.

OK, gotta keep earning my salary, see you all later!


ZekovicZoran - 4/12/2005 at 07:27 AM

I see some sun today. Thanks for that, dear Lady!


petri - 4/12/2005 at 01:06 PM

Good morning everyone

My daughter has gotten influenza (and not an ordinary flu) after all, doctor confirmed that. She's got a high fever and I have never seen her being so tired and in a such cross mood, doesn't eat much but luckily drinks milk when offered. I sure hope she'll get well soon.

Otherwise situation normal. Have a nice Wednesday.

Cheers!


harvey - 4/13/2005 at 04:48 PM

Petri, so sorry to hear about Aura . . . hope she gets better very very soon!

I am off up country to near where I grew up as a child on the coast this weekend, got Friday and Monday off so just 4 days alone with the Wife . . . with 18 & 21 year old sons at home it's the only way we get any quality time together . . . should be nice

Hopefully a few more "recent" shows should be arriving next week Petri, so when they do I'll get in touch and see if there are any you would like.

Hope everybody else is doing ok . . . especially Kim


dimmelsr - 4/13/2005 at 11:25 PM

wonderful day today!!


ladymule - 4/14/2005 at 05:22 AM

Petri, I hope your daughter gets well soon. Good wishes for you and your family.

Colin, hope you have a lovely getaway with your wife.


Peace, love and sun to all...


Welcome to the thread, dimmelsr. Glad you are enjoying your day!


petri - 4/14/2005 at 11:47 AM

Thanks for your concern, my friends. My wife called and said that today Aura has been clearly better, more like her joyful self. Great!

Colin, enjoy your extended holiday with your wife. That's what I needed. You know, I love and adore my kids but two days... no, even one day together just with my dear wife would be something different...
Another matter: I'm positively ready for some Anglo-Finn trade.

Kim, rays of sun and positive thoughts to you. Hope you're doing well.

OK, got to work. Heippa! (that's Ta-Ta or Bye)


harvey - 4/14/2005 at 12:21 PM

Thanks for the good wishes folks . . . weather forecast is showers with sunny intervals . . . but I enjoy going out for a walk in the countryside whatever the weather . . . and as I was born on the coast whenever I hear the sound of the waves and the screeching of gulls I feel like I have come home

Petri . . . very glad to hear Aura is on the mend . . . I will send you my up-to-date show list by email so you can have a look through to see what you might like this time for the springtime Anglo-Finn extravaganza

As of 4pm this afternoon I will be without access to a computer until next Monday evening, so I wish you all a happy weekend wherever you may be . . . especially you Kim . . . Keep smiling and thinking happy thoughts

Have a nice day!
Oh, yes: Temperature only 8 C in Novi Sad!

ladymule - 4/23/2005 at 04:40 AM

Hi All!

Petri, sorry to hear you are getting a wintry spring. That sucks! We had about two weeks of sun and rising temps until a day or so ago. Now we have a 5 day rain and cool air forecast! That sucks too! Anyway, hope things soon improve for you in Finland. BTW, hope you get great tickets to CSN Monday!

Zeka, hmmm, to find member 50,000, I would recommend going to the home page. I don't think they have a winner yet {I could be wrong! }. I wonder what your little gift could be Zeka, some ABB maybe?!

Lots of Love to ALL...

petri - 4/25/2005 at 10:34 AM

Hello everyone,

Happy Monday. Sunny up here, but chilly mornings... Fortunately it gets warmer during the day. But still, even if it's sunny the spring is definitely late.

Whoa! I got my tickets to CSN! Happy happy joy joy!

Well, I have to content myself with CSN because ABB doesn't come to Europe and Finland. We have a great annual outdoors blues festival in Jarvenpaa, Finland with a excellent reputation, and The Brothers would be just perfect there - and the festival would be a perfect venue for The Brothers... Little Feat was there last summer and many living blues and soul legends have performed in the festival... even Lynyrd Skynyrd, HAHA... Also Bonnie Raitt has visited Jarvenpaa and Robert Cray will come this year, it's his third visit in the festival. I would have put a link here but the bastids have only Finnish website...

OK, Carry On...

Hello everyone,

Kim, nice to see especially you around, how are you doing? Yeah, I got the tics and am counting the days...

Colin, since you're going to see Cream I suggest you take a look at my updates list and pay attention to a couple of Cream shows from 1967... excellent stuff from Stockholm's Konserthus and Ricky Tick Club...

The weather is quite good, the mornings have been cold but the days are warmer.

. . . some hiking out in the English countryside

. . . some moseying around a few antique shops

. . . a football (soccer) match

. . . a quiz night at the local pub

. . . a BBQ

. . . lots of beer

Good afternoon everyone,

1st of May/Labour Day weekend coming up, that means brass bands and speeches on the first hand and general drinking, littering and looning, balloons, confetti and funny masks and brawls and fights on the other hand, in other words chaos and May-hem, heh heh...

Enjoy your weekend and Colin, enjoy the concert the three elderly gentlemen are going to give...

Cheers!


harvey - 4/29/2005 at 12:56 PM

Hey . . . they are not much older than me

I wonder if they'll have to do 4 sets so they can take enough pee breaks

Have a great weekend yourself Petri


ladymule - 5/1/2005 at 05:53 AM

Petri and Colin, enjoy your Labour Day holiday! Sounds like you both will be doing some celebrating! Our Labour Day is in September.

If all goes according to plan, I'll be heading out tomorrow with my hubby to see a Trad jazz band called the Southern Comfort Jazz Band. They play the first Sunday of every month unless it is a holiday weekend. If so, they play the second Sunday of the month. If the weather is good, management opens the door to the patio, so you can sit on the patio which overlooks the river and still listen to the music. Anyway, the forecast for tomorrow is rain and not too warm so I'll have to look forward to a future Sunday patio experience.

Colin, have a most excellent time Monday night!!! I'm a 'jealous girl'! Whiiite Roooom!!!......Sunshine of Your Looooove!!!

ENJOY!!!


Quinn - 5/1/2005 at 03:55 PM

ladymule - 5/1/2005 at 04:35 PM

Thanks Quinn. You have a grate day too!


harvey - 5/2/2005 at 11:50 PM

Well . . . all I can say is if there was no "F" in awesome . . . there is now . . . because Eric, Jack and Ginger were Effin Awsome tonight!!!

As for a set list . . . I need Cujo to lend me his thingy next time . . . I started to try to memorize it but gave up . . . suffice it to say they played pretty much all of their catalogue (the only exception that I can think of is Strange Brew which for some reason didn't feature). They opened with "I'm So Glad" at 8-10 and wound up the one set show with White Room at 10-50 . . . they then came back for a "Sunshine of Your Love" encore and finished at 10-05. In between we had "Badge", "Crossroads", "On Top Of The World" and even "Pressed Rat & Warthog" with Ginger on vocals, there was also an excellent rendition of "Stormy Monday" with Eric on vocals. I'm sure a proper set list will be available tomorrow so I won't tax my befuddled brain any more at the moment.

As excited as I was at the prospect of going to this show, I was also apprehensive as to how time may have taken its toll on the guys. I knew Eric was still performing well, but had not heard anything by Ginger of late, and of course Jacks health problems and transplant of a couple of years ago are well known. I need not have worried however, as they were as tight a unit as if they had never split up, Jacks vocals were strong, and his base counterplays as challenging to Erics lead riffs as they always were, and Gingers drumming, whilst perhaps less flambouyant than it used to be, was nevertheless spot on in precision, and when he finally got around to doing his solo on the last number of the evening he proved that he still can run around the drums quicker than an octopus with two sticks in each tentacle!!!

I guess the best analogy is actually the ABB, gone is the raw drive and ambition of young lads with a love of the blues and a dream to fulfill but in their place are ultimate professionals who have learned every trick of their trade and are now doing it for fun. Eric, Jack and Ginger had a smile on their faces throughout the show, and it will be a long time before you wipe the smile off mine . . . "F" in Awesome

Colin, glad to see you clearly enjoyed the Cream concert. Wish I could have afforded to come and be there...

Labour Day weekend was a cold one here and celebration was subdued, I think folks stayed indoors for the greater part. This is going to be a short working week, Thursday is Holy Thursday and I have Friday off so I'm having a long weekend ahead of me.

Welcome to the thread ABBsri04 and Binnsjim.

Colin, 'I'm So Glad' you had a wonderful time at the Cream show. I was thinking about you.

Petri, have a lovely long weekend. Sorry to hear you didn't have the best weather for Labour Day. It was pretty cold here too--still is, although, warmer air is in the forecast! It's supposed to be up to 20 C here Saturday , but rainy .

Love to ALL.

Good afternoon all,

I'll be enjoying a long weekend soon, tomorrow is Holy Thursday and it's a holiday and I also have Friday off. So I'll be spending some time with the family away from the computer... and probably watching some Ice Hockey Wold Championships with a coldie in my right hand.

See you all next week. Until then,

Hello everyone,l

The long weekend felt like a mini-holiday, it's GRATE to be back at work

Belated Happy Mother's Day wishes to every mom here on ther forum. I'm happy to say that Mother's Day was a great one in our family. I woke up my wife (and our daughter) with our son who presented her a card he had made himself. He was so proud of it... and mom was of course delighted. I took the reins there after and was her obediant servant for the rest of the day (how does that differ from any other day..? ). I hope I managed to spoil her at least for a day - she had an opprtunity to watch Canada - Finland ice hockey match while I was in the kitchen...

So now it's work again... but one has to do something to keep creditors happy...


ladymule - 5/11/2005 at 03:23 AM

Hope all are doing well...

Glad you and your family had such a nice Mother's Day, Petri. Re: you were her obedient servant and how does that differ from any other day...well, you probably didn't complain about it on Mother's Day! {You know I'm just kidding you, Petri. }

Yes, I have had a nice weekend, thank you {hope you have as well}. Yesterday, we went to Toronto to one of our fave bars to see our fave Trad Jazz Dixie band, The Happy Pals {http://www.happypals.ca-if you feel like checking them out}.

And on Friday we got our tix to ABB Toronto. Haven't seen the band since summer 03, but hello CENTER SECTION, FRONT ROW, SEATS 28-31, AUG. 16, 2005!! WOOO HOOOO!!


ladymule - 5/16/2005 at 01:32 AM

I just took a bit of a look at the Happy Pals web site and found this pic of my hubby {wearing his Leon Russell shirt}. Click on the link if you want to see what my um, 'other' half looks like. He was sitting in with the band for a couple of tunes. Sorry, no pics of me there I don't think!

Anyway, that was a fun day, but on a sad note, that was the last time we got to take my mother to see the Happy Pals.

We usually go alone but this year we're going with a couple of friends who haven't seen the band yet. Geoff is a Mule fan and my friend Helene {his wife} is a fan of great music so I'm sure both will enjoy the ABB enormously.

Hey David, good to see ya bro!

Hope you're having a good evening...

tweet, tweet...


petri - 5/18/2005 at 07:38 AM

Good morning to everyone - except that you are sleeping at the moment, heh heh...

It's been a busy week and I've been lurking on and off, haven't had really much time to hang here as much as I'd like to...

Kim, lucky you getting to see ABB. I'm sure the concert will be a blast...

Colin, the countdown is minus 27 to CSN in Helsinki. I'm already feeling itchy...

The weather is quite cold with occasional rainshowers but it's getting greener and greener... Won't be long before we too can enjoy the summer in this part of the world.

OK, got to go, see you around. Heippa!


harvey - 5/18/2005 at 12:36 PM

Happy Wednesday everybody

Petri . . . I've got 35 days to CSN I must dig out some of their stuff and give it a listen . . . haven't heard it for a while because of all the great shows that people keep sending me . . . hope to have another cool offer up by the end of the week . . . keep your eyes open

Hello Colin and all the other Peaches,

It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log. Instead I'm still at work, having a PAAAARTY!!! It's "The Traditional Patio Opening Season" festives going on. We've been "burning" sausages and drinking beer and wine or whatever... Great day and evening for barbeque, sunny and clear blue sky. I'm going to have some coldies tonight...

Happy Friday to everyone, the weekend starts here!


Quinn - 5/21/2005 at 01:27 AM

Whoa, that's hot! We got barely 20 degrees Celsius now and it sure feels warm after chilly spring. But that's the way it's around here: as soon as it stops snowing and it's 15 degrees C people start wearing T-shirts and bermudas, LOL...


CanPeach - 5/24/2005 at 05:10 PM

Afternoon all

Back to work today after a long weekend...feels like Monday


grizzlygrapes - 5/24/2005 at 07:11 PM

Just registered minutes ago, though I've been on the site a few times over the years.
Haven't seen the boys play in a a few years, maybe SEVERAL years come to think of it.
The Gorge at George, WA in '91(Warren came over to the fence to say hi and we chatted, I got his autograph, then we drew a crowd) and HORDE in '94(CA) I think, and HORDE in K.C. in '95 or 96 when John Popper joined ABB for a helluva jam after BT played. Have only seen them once since then so I AM DUE, especially after their last few records and the Live at the Beacon DVD set which is stunning throughout. Am I right or is this the best they've sounded since "the day"? And man what a show GM put on at the Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa last year! What a collection of pure talent and passion. I was blown away.

Anyway, I'm a big fan who grew up in the 60's/70's in Missouri, Arkansas.. and a bit in FL and IL so all the ingredients of ABB music ring true and weave together the cultural influences of my youth. MY MAIN QUESTION? Does anyone know if ABB and/or GM will play Missoula, MT or The Gorge Ampi. at George, WA? Thanks for listening to a newbie, sorry I took up so much space. Happy Spring.


Quinn - 5/25/2005 at 12:06 AM

petri - 5/25/2005 at 07:15 AM

Hello everyone, hello Quinn, hello grizzlygrapes, welcome to the forum.

I'm off to donate some blood for The Red Cross in a minute, today's good deed...

It was a gorgeous weather here yesterday, blue sky, sunshine and +25 C. Today it's a little bit cooler but as sunny as it was yesterday. And I just love the bright green color of the trees and grass...

Cheers!


harvey - 5/25/2005 at 07:20 AM

Morning Petri . . . I thought they used paint to make the red cross . . . just joking, it is a good deed that you do, unfortunately I cannot give blood because of all the vaccinations I have to keep myself dosed up on for when I get sent into the jungle etc . . . have a great day everyone

ZekovicZoran - 5/26/2005 at 10:42 AM

Hi, dear S&B!
Yes, Colin, last night was a great. My heart was with Liverpool. After first part (3:0) I was down. But, after that... Only LIVERPOOL!
Last few weeks I was so busy (you know that, the end of school year at Faculty, lot of students, etc.) and I hadn't time to be here. I can see you are all together, my dear friends, and I am happy because of that.
Be happy and well!
Best wishes to all from Serbia!

I confess that I was about to give up after the first half when the game was 3-0 for AC Milan... but luckily I stayed tuned... Liverpool scored 3 goals just in 6 minutes! Unbelieveable! And it's HEIPPA HYYPIÄ, how could you do that mistake?! ............ Only kidding my friend...

It's Friday and the weekend starts here. HEIPPA!

harvey - 5/31/2005 at 07:33 AM

Hope you all had a nice weekend folks . . . back to work now . . . but at least it is only 4 days to the weekend


petri - 5/31/2005 at 02:56 PM

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a nice weekend folks


Yes I did, and a busy one, too. It was a beautiful, sunny weekend here so I singlehandedly ground and polished and conserved our patio in the weekend and afterwards felt it in every muscle of my body. Our patio isn't a small one... But I remembered to take care of the liquor balance of my body - I made sure that I had a beer can suitably at hand... And after a hard day's work steaming hot sauna and more coldies... aaah... Now we have a patio that's like a new one (patting myself on the back).

14 days to CSN in Helsinki... I don't really know how they sound nowadays on stage but it's enough for me just experience the event...


harvey - 5/31/2005 at 03:46 PM

Hello Petri . . . thanks for the email . . . I'll send you a reply later in the week . . . gotta rush off and pick up the Wife now . . . laterzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Kim, lucky you getting to see ABB. I'm sure the concert will be a blast...


Hey friends!! You've been out of sight but not out of mind. I think about all of you every day. Do you believe me? I hope you do cause I speak the truth.

Thank you Petri for supporting my trip to see the ABB even though you are deprived of an in-person ABB experience yourself {so far, anyway }. But, have a blast at the CSN show!

Colin, re: meaningful comments about the current CSN. What I've heard goes back a few years and applies to the CSN and Y reunion tour and is very general in nature, but better than nothing {I think }: everyone raved about the shows, to the extent that I felt sorry not to have gone myself. To be sure, If CSNY comes around again, I'll be going. In fact, I think it was the raving about that tour that inspired me to see Neil Young for the first time when he did the Greendale show {which I enjoyed very much}. PS, I like your new sig, and what the heck does PT mean?

In addition to seeing the ABB Aug. 16, Sandy talked me into going to see Little Feat again this year. So that is on Sun. June 26 in Toronto at the Docks. You guys know I'm a big Doors fan and they are playing TO again this year {Aug. 1}. This time they have put a festival together--the Toronto show is The Doors, Vanilla Fudge and Pat Travers. Other cities get The Yardbirds and/or Steppenwolf on the bill too. The only problem {for me} is that they booked the Docks {with general admission--NO SEATING} for this show. For a festival {multi-band} show they should have booked the Molson Amphitheater where there are seats so people don't have to stand for hours! Honestly, who can stand {comfortably} for that many hours? Not me. So, I'm kind of in a bitchy mood about all this!

Any other concerts planned for any of you guys?

Lots of love out to each and every one of you sweet peaches!


harvey - 6/1/2005 at 12:55 PM

Good day peachy sunshine people

Hey Kim . . . nice to see you around these parts again . . . hope you are keeping well

PT = Page Turn . . . I know . . . us sad boys get excited about the smallest of things . . . don't we always

hi all positive vibes to all


ZekovicZoran - 6/3/2005 at 08:52 AM

Hi, Colin!
I get some, really!
Best wishes to all, dear S&B!


harvey - 6/3/2005 at 11:38 AM

Happy Friday folks

Jan and I are going away this afternoon to visit a niece and her husband (seems odd to call her niece because she is actually only 2 years younger than my wife and 8 years younger than me, so more like a cousin). Although their main house is just North of London, they have a small 2 bedroom cottage in a town called King's Lynn on the coast in Norfolk (my home county where I was raised) and we are spending the weekend there with them, should be nice

On Saturday night, a band called the "Counterfeit Stones" are playing at the local town hall, so we are going to see them. They are a Rolling Stones tribute band, but are meant to be musically very good and also quite humorous, so it should be a fun night

No internet access, however, so I won't be around the site again until Monday

Zeka . . . went to the Post Office this morning and sent a little "Summertime Blues" off in your direction . . . hope you enjoy it

Have a great weekend everybody


petri - 6/3/2005 at 12:57 PM

Hello everyone,

Kim, nice to hear from you, you have also been on my mind. I hope you enjoy the festival even if you have to stand... I understand your feelings, it can be very hard on your legs and feet. But hope you can still enjoy the music.

Colin, thanks for the email, I'll get back to you next week. Enjoy your weekend, sounds wonderful.

Zeka, nice to see you around, too! Where have you been?

OK folks, it's Friday and the weekend starts here... 5-4-3-2-1 Ready Stedy Go! (I think Colin can relate to this ) Enjoy your weekend!

Cheers!


ladymule - 6/5/2005 at 03:54 AM

Hi all!

Colin, thanks for solving the mystery of PT for me. BTW, some small things are worth getting excited about! And have a great weekend in Norfolk!

Petri, we got our Doors tix on Friday. Maybe we'll show up in time to see Vanilla Fudge and then it will be standing only for two {not three} bands--possibly a more manageable endeavor!
I think Ready Steady Go is/was {?} the British model for American Bandstand? Please correct me if I am wrong.

Zeka and Quinn...peace and hello Peach Bros.! Hope all is well...

David, Oh my God, I hardly know what to say to you!! I guess the first thing that comes to mind is: if you think I need a good spanking maybe you should come here and tell me that in person cause thems fightin' words!
I think what you probably meant to say is that you'd like to give me a good spanking!!
However, I can assure you my behind needs a SEAT, never a spanking!!


Quinn - 6/5/2005 at 06:16 PM

good vibes to all, hope all is well


ZekovicZoran - 6/6/2005 at 07:41 AM

Good morning, my dear S&B!
Bro Colin, thank you. I am waiting for your Summertime gift.
Last weekend was a very nice. First of all, I saw on TV ABB (that is our local TV station named Metropolis).
And second, I was with my beer in one nice pub, and good music was played (good, old stuffs such is Sweet home Alabama).
Have a nice week (I love Mondays)!


harvey - 6/7/2005 at 07:41 AM

Hello everybody

Didn't get much time to check in yesterday . . . too busy, both at work and at home, following my weekend away

Had a great time at the weekend on the coast, lots of fresh seafood and the "Counterfeit Stones" were fun on Saturday night . . . I wasn't sure what I would make of a tribute band, but musically they were good and they put on a humorous show.

Have a great day all


Quinn - 6/8/2005 at 09:56 PM

enjoy the day everyone


ladymule - 6/9/2005 at 04:05 AM

Colin {and Jan} and Zeka, glad you all had nice weekends!

Sounds like wonderful days...

Love to all.


petri - 6/9/2005 at 07:19 AM

Hello everyone!

Just a quick hello before I have to leave.

Kim, hello, nice to see you! You're right, Ready! Steady! Go! was a British music program equivalent to American Bandstand. I think it was aired in 1963-1966.

OK, work calls, I have to leave for the city of Jyvaskyla here in Finland and won't be back until Saturady, so take good care of yourselves.

Cheers!


ZekovicZoran - 6/9/2005 at 08:20 AM

Hi, dear S&B!
First of all, BIG THANKS to bro Colin! All CDs are at my home and I can say only one word: GREAT!!!
Dear Lady, a weather is bad here. Rain all a day (Temperature only 9 C). It looklike summer.
And a few words about concerts. June 28th will be a great day in my country. One old, good band named "Bijelo dugme" (translation: "White Button") will be together again after 16 years (and all three singers will be there, at stadion, not really stadion - that is a place for horse-races, because 200,000 people wiil be there!). I have, of course, tickets for my wife and me. That band started to play in year 1974. After that, 20 years "Bijelo dugme" was something like Yugoslavian Beatles + Rolling Stones. I am happy because of that concert!
Have a nice day, dear family!


harvey - 6/9/2005 at 04:03 PM

Glad the package arrived ok Zeka . . . enjoy!!!

Videmi Sesutra


ZekovicZoran - 6/10/2005 at 07:50 AM

One thing: You mean VIDIMO SE SUTRA! (See you tomorow!). i.e. ВИДИМО СЕ СУТРА! (cyrillic letters). You are great - you know to write my serbian!
Gov't Mule is on now (For My Brother + Colin).
Rain. Stop. Rain. Stop. 60 hours. Stop. NON-STOP. Stop. Temperature 10 C. Stop. Love you all. Stop.

Zeka, sorry to hear you have so much rain and cool air. That's not summer or even spring weather! We've got oppressive heat, humidity and occasional thunderstorms. Tonight there was a severe weather watch for an area about 45 minutes from here--a tornado touched down. Nothing in our immediate area though. Hope things warm and brighten up for you and cool down for us!

And have a wonderful time at your 'White Button' concert! WOW!! 200,000 people at one concert...hope you and your wife don't have claustrophobia!!

ENJOY ZEKA!!


CanPeach - 6/12/2005 at 03:38 AM

Good afternoon Peaches,

I had a busy weekend working on Saturday so my weekend was a bit short.

Tomorrow is a great day: CSN live in concert in Hartwall Arena, Helsinki. I will go there straight from the work, just have something to bite and a coldie on my way there. More of the concert later.

Have a great Monday you all!

Good late afternoon to you all,

Tonight's the night: Crosby Stills & Nash at Hartwall Arena Helsinki at 8.00 pm local time - that's 1.00 pm East Coast Time. Excitement's growing... Will they be good or will they be a disappointment after all this waiting? I'll be wiser tonight and let you know tomorrow.

The weather here in Finland hasn't been too warm, so far June has been quite cool. Garry's winter in Oz is warmer than our summer at the moment, LOL.

Take care of yourselves!

Okay, okay, I'll try to give you more detailed "report" on Friday because tomorrow I'll have a day off. I can say that CSN was every bit as good as with Neil, if not even BETTER! The sound was excellent and they performed a nice combination of old classics and newer stuff. Croz is THE Voice... man, sounds like his voice hasn't aged a bit. More later...


Quinn - 6/15/2005 at 07:18 PM

glad you had a good time


harvey - 6/15/2005 at 08:16 PM

Here is Petri's more detailed review . . .

quote:
I can say that CSN was every bit as good as with one Neil Y., if not even BETTER. The sound was excellent and they performed a nice combination of old classics and some newer stuff. And they have Jeff Pevar on stringed instruments and James Raymond on keys (along with Mike Finnigan) on this tour. Joe Vitale is on drums and David Santos (or was it Sanchez) is on bass. Croz is THE VOICE... man, his voice sounds like it hasn't aged a bit. On the contrary Stills seemed to be tired and he sang a lot less than I expected him to. He was clearly protecting his voice.

The arena wasn't sold out, so in order to preserve an "intimate" athmosphere the staff or whoever had isolated the empty back seating area of the arena with a huge black curtain (the upper balconies were never on sale for this concert) and made some seating arrangements so the crowd wouldn't be scattered around the half empty space. So the actual place was now more like a sizable auditorium. The middle-aged crowd was first politely receptive but loosened up in the course of time. Some even dared to jump and wave thier arms Some joker shouted at Nash "play some Hollies" and Nash lost the plot and burst into a laughter.

To me the songs that Crosby has written sounded so... majestetic, beautiful and original. Deja Vu has always been one of my favorite ones and it didn't let me down. Almost Cut My Hair rocked and Guinnevere was just plain magnificent. But no acoustic set, just a few acoustic or semi-acoustic songs scattered here and there. What I missed most was Suite Judy Blue Eyes... Hey, I almost forgot: their new songs (collaborations with Pevar and Raymond) are really good!

But the concert was well woth the money. And I bought one of their tour T-shirts...

See you all later!


Thanks for the review Petri . . . now I am really looking forward to next Wednesday when it is my turn to go and see them


Quinn - 6/16/2005 at 09:14 PM

Hope all are well...

ZekovicZoran - 6/17/2005 at 07:47 AM

Good morning, dear S&B!
Band "Bijelo dugme" (translation: "White Button") had the first concert after 16 years in their hometown Sarajevo (I think you know that town in my ex country Yugoslavia, because of our bad war). For information, at football stadion named Kosevo was over 60,000 of peole. Next station is Zagreb (in Croatia) , and after that... Belgrade, 28th June! Only 11 days. I could say that all my coutry Serbia wait for that concert!
Have a nice weekend, dear family!


harvey - 6/17/2005 at 07:51 AM

Thanks Kim . . . I'm sure I will

In fact I plan on having a wonderful week . . . after today I am off work for a weeks vacation in Derbyshire (in the middle of England) for a bit of hiking around the Pennines . . . I imagine I might have to call into a few pubs along the way . . . just to ask for directions you understand

Have a great time yourselves


petri - 6/17/2005 at 12:34 PM

Hello Peaches,

Nice sunny and warm weather here in Finland so it's going to be a wonderful weekend.

I had a day off yesterday due to working overtime on several days last week and on Saturady, too. My son had his 4-year-old birthday yesterday so I was pretty much helping in various domestic tasks. The party was a success and my son and his quests enjoyed themselves.

Colin, thanks a bunch for copying my "review" here, you were quicker than me, LOL. Have a nice holiday, I'm sure you'll enjoy your hiking trip. Remember to take care of your liquor balance, if you know what I mean, nudge-nudge wink-wink... I hope you'll be having a package waiting when you'll get back from your trip...

Have a great weekend you all, see you next week.


harvey - 6/18/2005 at 07:39 AM

Another bright and sunny and warm day in the land of The Midnight Sun. The days are long and the nights are short, it doesn't really get dark at nights in the summer. In the Lappland the sun won't set for a few weeks now...

Kim, so nice to see you and thanks for the happy birthday wishes to my little son, he'll be delighted. Lotsa love in your direction...

Zeka, nice to see you too, brother. All is well in Serbia-Montenegro, I hope.

Cheers!

Dear bro Petri, Serbia is a grat country. Come to see a nice people here. Yes, in Novi Sad we will have a big festival EXIT from 6th to 10th July. I know only that the White Stripes will come (and many more bands). But, I am ABB fan (Statesboro Blues is on righ now, again and again and again and...), and don't like such kind of music like DJ music,
Love!
Dr. Zeka

Only to say HELLO to you, my dear S&B!



Hellooo...Dr. of Love...I mean Dr. Zeka! Zeka, will you be going to the EXIT Festival?

Petri, thanks for the love, friend... How are you able to sleep well in the summer when the nights are short and it doesn't really get dark?

Quinn, peace to you too...


ZekovicZoran - 6/23/2005 at 08:16 AM

Dear Lady, what you mean? Of course, I'll be there!
Have a nice da, dear S&B!
Zeka


petri - 6/23/2005 at 12:40 PM

Good afternoon everyone,

Kim, we Finns have a tens of thousands years of practice sleeping well during the short nights, LOL... I really don't know, you sleep well while taking a nap, don't you? It's not that difficul reallyt...

This is my last day at work and I'll start my summer vacation. I'll be taking a 5 week hiatus from the forum activities and concentrate on other things, mainly my wife and kids. I just wanted to wish everyone a happy and enjoyable summertime, I'll be seeing you all in August.

Cheers!


Quinn - 6/23/2005 at 02:48 PM

stay safe petri


ladymule - 6/26/2005 at 03:53 AM

Petri, have a lovely time with your wife and kids! And glad to hear you rest well at night.

Zeka, based on your comments about the Exit Festival, I wasn't sure if you were planning to attend. Tomorrow, I'm off to see Little Feat in Toronto at the Docks {where the Doors Strange Days Festival will be held}. You have a great time on the 28th!

Colin, welcome back from your week of R&R. Did you have hot and humid weather where you were? I've been watching Wimbledon and they have been playing in hot, humid weather. Hope the air was more temperate where you were.

Peace and love to all...


ZekovicZoran - 6/28/2005 at 08:51 AM

Today is a DAY! Band "Bijelo dugme" (translation: "White Button") and 200,000 people at the same place. My dear friend Sanja came from New York and we'll go together. Lady, you are right about EXIT (have you seen that at MTV? EXIT and my town Novi Sad?), but something (only something), I hope so, will be good.
Have a nice day as I'll have!

Thanks for the lovely welcome Kim . . . hello to you and to everybody else

Sorry it has taken me so long to post here but I have been sooooo busy since I got home on Saturday night . . . did you miss me . . . OK maybe that’s asking too much . . . I had a great week walking in the hills of Derbyshire . . . glorious sunny weather with low humidity (unlike Wimbledon thankfully) and absolutely breathtaking scenery

Also last Wednesday night it was my turn to see Crosby, Stills & Nash . . . they were excellent . . . they played two long sets and two encores . . . bit like “An Evening With”

I was a bit apprehensive beforehand because I had seen reports by others who had not enjoyed their performances in recent years, but I need not have worried because they were really on song and the three part harmonies made the hair on my neck stand up just like they used to back in the day

They started off with “Carry On” and to be truthful Steve Stills voice was a little shaky on that one, but there was nothing wrong with the vocals of Graham Nash & Dave Crosby who sounded as good as ever. They played a good mix of old tunes and new . . . I think they did about every song off their first album except for Suite: Judy Blue Eyes . . . which was perhaps the only disappointment of the night as that is one of my favourites . . . Guinevere, Marrakesh Express, Wooden Ships, Helplessly Hoping, Almost Cut My Hair, Woodstock etc etc etc . . . great stuff

My fears for Steve Stills voice were allayed when he did a song from his last album . . . an old ‘50’s blues song called “Ole Man Trouble” . . . this was in a lower key perhaps more suited to his current vocal range than those he used to sing in . . . and it was what he needed to get his voice warmed up . . . he sang it powerfully with confidence and from then on became more prominent in the harmonies on subsequent songs

The night ended with a second encore and “Teach Your Children” . . . a lump was in my throat and tears welling in my eyes by this time as I thought back to when I first heard that song some 35 years ago . . . then I was 18 and living with my dearly departed parents and now I am the parent with my 19 and 21 year old sons living with me . . . way too sentimental and a lovely way to end the evening

They may not be the young men that they were and their voices not quite as far ranging . . . but they are still consummate professionals who put on a great show and the harmonies are still just as chilling as they always were . . . do yourself a favour . . . if they are coming to a town near you go and see them . . . they will not disappoint


Quinn - 6/28/2005 at 07:37 PM

harvey, glad your back & that you had a good time


harvey - 6/28/2005 at 10:45 PM

Thanks Wayne . . . it's nice to go away but it is also (or should that be all so?) nice to come back


Quinn - 6/29/2005 at 01:36 AM

your right harvey,
there's no place like home
as Dorothy would say


ladymule - 6/29/2005 at 03:00 AM

Zeka, hope you had a grate time at your show today! And no, I haven't seen anything about your Exit Festival on our music tv station {called Much More Music; MTV is the American version }. But I usually don't watch it so if they did do something on it I would not know . Sorry Zeka!

Colin, so glad to hear you had a nice break and a very enjoyable CSN show! And thanks for your comprehensive review and yes, of course I missed you.

I had a lovely time seeing Little Feat Sunday night in Toronto. Doors opened to a very large patio on the harbourfront overlooking the lake and skyline. So I popped outside a couple of times to sit and enjoy the air and view. The musical highlight for me was Spanish Moon. Wooo Hoooo!

Peace and love 'all so'...


Quinn - 6/29/2005 at 10:29 PM

Hi ladymule, sounds like a grate setting for a show


ZekovicZoran - 6/30/2005 at 06:50 AM

Hi, dear S&B!
It was really great! Can you imagine more than 200,000 people at the same place? More than 3 hours of music! I had wrote somewhere here that band is something like ours Beatles + Rolling Stones. After 16 years the band was together again and everyone wanted to see them at the stage. It is nice to say: I was at the concert!
Have you any plans for summer? My family will go to Greece. It is nice sea and Greece is not so far from Serbia (I think only 800 km, i.e. about 500 miles). Here is a nice weather (temperature around 30 C).
Love!
Dr Zeka


Quinn - 7/1/2005 at 12:54 AM

good for you, have a ball


ladymule - 7/2/2005 at 04:06 AM

Hi Quinn, yes it was a grate setting. That's where The Doors Strange Days Festival will be held so now I know that I will enjoy hanging out on the patio sometimes while Pat Travers and Vanilla Fudge are playing and conserve energy for The Doors!
Have a fun holiday weekend. It's a long weekend for us too--Canada Day. I heard some fireworks in the park earlier this evening. I think they'll be going off each night this weekend.

Zeka, so glad you had a great time at your concert!
As for summer plans, well, it's hard to top a trip to GREECE!! A few concerts for me {Doors, ABB, {Jethro Tull in the fall} } and a few days here and there at watery destinations {hopefully}. This month we're going to my good friend Marilyn's place by the lake for a few days. We just made the arrangements tonight. I'm really looking forward to seeing her, swimming, having fires, partying, listening to good tunes, maybe a scrabble game or two, etc. !

Summer love to all...


ZekovicZoran - 7/4/2005 at 07:16 AM

Dear Lady, I wish you nice time at your trip!
Hi to all af you, dear S&B!

Harvey , just spotted your pics of the Royal Albert Hall! Thanks for sharing!


harvey - 7/5/2005 at 07:21 AM

Thanks for the heads up . . . actually it was Matt (origapch) that posted them . . . brings back memories of a nice pub crawl around London . . . and the band weren't too bad either


Quinn - 7/7/2005 at 01:28 AM

good vibes to all


ZekovicZoran - 7/7/2005 at 07:55 AM

And to you, too, dear Quinn!


harvey - 7/7/2005 at 11:08 AM

Hello everybody . . . in case you were concerned about me . . . fortunately I am 40 miles West of London and my office is in a small village in the countryside, so personally I could not be safer, but I have friends who are at work in London so my thoughts are with them at this moment in time.

The London Transport network has been closed down (as all 7 bombs were either rail or bus connected) and people are being told to stay where they are for now . . . unless they are at train or bus stations of course as they are all being evacuated.

Arab Intellegence Agencies are stating that it is almost certain that there is Al Qaeda involvement.

So far there are no confirmed numbers of casualties, thankfully it is not anywhere near the scale of 911 or Madrid, but my thoughts and prayers are with those families affected.


ladymule - 7/8/2005 at 03:45 AM

Colin, so glad to know you are safe and sound. I hope your friends are as well. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families as well. Peace and love, Kim....BTW, just want to mention that I enjoyed seeing the pics of you that Matt posted.

Zeka, thanks very much for your good holiday wishes. Hope all is well with you and yours. Peace and love...

Colin, I've got the Doors show coming up Monday night. That's 'keeping well'!!

CanPeach, sorry to hear you are deprived of coldies and are having to make due with Pepsi. I recently tried Tim Horton's frozen Cappucinno {sp?}. Very cold and pretty sweet but a nice substitute for coffee in this hot weather.

Peace and love to ALL

ladymule - 8/1/2005 at 04:52 AM

Hi CPeach and everybody!

"I've been doin' time in the Universal Mind..." Maybe that's where all our EU friends have been lately too!

Actually, I've been following the Doors saga: show's on, show's off, show's on. I guess Ray and Robby losing the lawsuit over using the Doors name threw everything into a tailspin...just conjecture on my part. Anyway, the Doors are playing the Docks in Toronto tomorrow night and God willing, I will be there!

Miss y'all, love y'all and only two weeks till ABB in TO!! Woo Hooo!

Peace and Love to all my friends on this 'thin raft'...


petri - 8/2/2005 at 01:07 PM

Hello my friends!

Back from the wilderness after 5 weeks, it's my second day at work and I have a lot to catch up here. And at last I have an Internet connection - I have a new computer at home but haven't had any time to plug it in and install all the goodies... I was too damn busy on my vacation, LOL. BTW, I used my sister's computer last time when I was lurking here...

Once again, my belated but humble thanks for July 14th congratulations, now I have them 44 blues...

Great to be back, see you all around. Cheers!

Hello everyone,

Another lovely day, sunny and temperature around 23 degrees C. I should be sitting on my backyard patio sipping a coldie...

very hot & humid, stay cool


CanPeach - 8/5/2005 at 12:09 AM

Welcome back petri


ladymule - 8/5/2005 at 02:08 AM

Hello to everyone...

Petri, welcome back, bro! Glad to hear you had a fantastic vacation.

Colin, regarding the Doors, they are now called D21C as in Doors of the 21st Century. Since they can't use the word Doors, they are just using D21C.

How were they? Well, this is my second year in a row seeing them so I would have to say that I really like them. Obviously, the band is missing the unique gifts of Jim and John but the new drummer is quite adequate, and they have a good bass player. Ian Astbury is The Guy to sub for Jim. I can't think of another vocalist/artist that would fit the bill better. Ian is a perfect fit in terms of his excellent singing, energy, passion, and respect for the legacy of the Doors, Jim, the music, Ray and Robby, and the fans. He's quite the showman and entirely his own person, not a Jim 'clone' IMO. Ray and Robby are worth the price of the ticket alone {IMO}. Hey they're legends and deserve the title. The songs are classics, they play them with passion and skill, and they both play great solos. In particular, I think Robby is awesome. His extended solo on Light My Fire was one of the highlights of the night for me. {I stood in the second row right in front of him all night!! . }I would say that if you are a fan of the original Doors you are apt to like the D21C. I was skeptical before I saw them last year {yikes, no John or Jim} but the show they put on made me a convert.

Setlist if you are interested:

Break On Through
Love Me Two Times
When The Music's Over
Alabama Song {Whiskey Bar}
Back Door Man
Five To One
Do It
The Crystal Ship
People Are Strange
Not To Touch The Earth
Touch Me
L. A. Woman
Roadhouse Blues
Light My Fire
Soul Kitchen>Peace Frog>Soul Kitchen

I hear they are talking about doing another tour in England. If you are interested you could go to TheDoors.com and check out their message board. There is a thread about it going on right now in the D21C forum. Also, for tour dates go to RobbyKrieger.com.

Cheers!


petri - 8/5/2005 at 01:01 PM

Thanks Neil and Kim, good to be back - eventhough I really wasn't away, just taking a break...

Hi Zeka and welcome back! Good to hear you had a restful and enjoyable holiday. All my 'news' I recently posted not too far above... . Tuesday, Aug. 16 is ABB for me and I'm starting to get excited! I'm going with my hubby and a couple of good friends. Wish You Were Here!


ZekovicZoran - 8/11/2005 at 08:09 AM

Lucky you, dear Lady!
And thanks! I wish you the best party with ABB (and wish to be there, of course - I think a next year will be mine for trip to USA, i.e. to ABB).
I know that "Wish You Were Here" (Help me, please! Is that a title of something? Maybe some band like PF? Ha-ha!)
Best wishes to all of you, dear S&B!

Kim . . . hope the ABB play all your favourites

Zeka . . . glad you had a nice holiday . . . and how about New York City next March for ABB at the Beacon . . . I shall be going

4 weeks to wait until the Mule play here again in London then the day after I am off to Geneva for a week in the Alps . . . can't wait

Be well everybody

Hello everyone,

The rainy season has begun... The World Championships in Athletics here in Helsinki are suffering from heavy rains and thunder.

I'm taking a day off tomorrow and heading for my parents-in-law's place to pick some fresh rasberries for the winter... yum-yum... I'm going to bring a car-load of them back home.

Yes, I know my friend... I have a similar situation and feeling... but drop a line when you can.

Kim, I wish I was there... enjoy my friend!

Zeka, are you going to New york next year??? Everybody's going but me... I can't afford it, not next year but maybe the year after that... "If you wish upon a star..." Better start playing lotto or football tips...


ladymule - 8/12/2005 at 02:11 AM

Hey Bros, thanks for your good wishes! It's good to read that you guys all intend to come over to see the ABB in the next year or two!

Yes, all favourites would be nice but I don't have a wish list of tunes. I just enjoy what I get and I like to be surprised! I do have a prediction though: in 2003 they played Instrumental Illness but this time I think we'll hear Egypt.

Actually, I do have one request: if they play Melissa, they do so before or after I've umm, used the facilities. It never fails that when I'm out of the room, so to speak, I hear the familiar chords to Melissa.

Have good days everybody!

Hello, my dear S&B!
Yes, I'm well! I think that is because of one great CD of (what do you think?) ABB from NYC (year 1971).
Wish to all of you a better day than I have here (rain, cold, etc., temperature only 17 C). Is this some kind of summer?
Zeka


petri - 8/18/2005 at 08:01 AM

Good day sunshine to everyone,

A nice day even if the nights and the mornings are getting cooler. I think it's autumn in the air. The temparature is 21 degr. C and the weather forecast has promised even warmer for Friday and Saturday so I think me and my family are heading for my parent's summer cottage by a beautiful little lake... Just have to bear two more days at work.

Zeka, try to bear with the weather, I'm sure it will get warmer there. BTW, I have always imagined that The Balkans are hot and humid place... And keep on grooving with The Brothers and any good music.

What are you folks listening to at the moment? I'm trying to listen to the shows that piled up prior to my holiday but everytime I try to put on one of my CDs my son buzzes in and demands one of his to be played, LOL... some kids' stuff... But I've been TRYING to listen to Van Morrison (thanks Dutch), Bonnie Raitt (thanks Garry), Little Feat and Clapton (thanks John) and not forgetting The Brothers (thanks Colin and marco).

OK, got to keep on working, catch you all later.

Cheers!

Just had a nice long weekend away in Cheddar Gorge . . . didn't get to go down the caves unfortunately . . . to many danged foreign tourists . . . but I did climb up (as in up a footpath not a rockface) to the top of the gorge and hiked along the ridge . . . wonderful scenery and superb weather . . . bright and sunny but with low humidity . . . had some great food and nice cold beers too

Have a great week

I had a week in the Peak District back in June . . . that is such a lovely area of England


ZekovicZoran - 8/26/2005 at 10:12 AM

Where are you, my dear S&B?
No one here for a two days! Lot of job?
Have a nice weekend (with ABB, of course)

Hello everyone and hello Zeka,

You hit the nail in the head: too much work this week (I speak only for myself)... I'm glad it's Friday and have a chance to have a breather.

Colin, I'll get back to you next week as soon as possible, meanwhile have a nice weekend!
And that goes with everyone else, too.

Hyypiä!


Quinn - 8/27/2005 at 02:54 AM

Been a while since I've dropped in and I wanted to share some love.

I'll second that

Maggie, so nice to see you around here, why don't you drop in more often? And let me wish you a Happy Birthday, too.

And hello and good morning to you ALL, how did your weekend go, hope you had a good one.

My thoughts and prayers go to all who live in the area where hurricane Katrina is about to hit... Despite that, have a good week.


ZekovicZoran - 8/29/2005 at 08:16 AM

Happy birthday, Maggie!

Hope everyone is safe down south, our thoughts and prayers are with you folks.


ladymule - 8/30/2005 at 02:03 AM

Happy Birthday to Maggie!

Hey All...

Thought I'd let y'all know {belatedly } that I had a fantastic time at the Toronto ABB show! Loved seeing Jack P. and Chuck L. as well as Ron H. My first ABB show in 97 was with Jack and Dickey and I haven't heard Jack since 98. It was a treat and a thrill. Got a great selection of tunes as well...particularly loved Don't Keep Me Wondering, Ain't Wasting Time No More, Liz Reed, Midnight Rider, Jessica {with Chuck ...never thought I'd ever get to hear that!}, Whipping Post etc. etc. Actually, every song was a winner and a thrill to hear!

Peace and lots of love to all...


*Just want to express my sincere concern, thoughts and prayers for those people suffering as a result of the hurricane. I've been watching CNN and the situation is very grave for many.

ZekovicZoran - 8/30/2005 at 10:52 AM

Dear sister Lady,
I am happy because of you and your great time in Toronto. I can say only that I saw that man (Chuck L.) yesterday, but only at TV (you know that old story about the MAN and a new band, I think its name is Rolling Stones, or something like that. Ha-ha-ha-ha!)
Be well and far away from any trouble!

Dear bro Zeka, thank you so much!

Hmm, I'm surprised they even showed Chuck on tv where The Stones usually like to pretend {from what I've seen anyway} that there is no bass or keys player in the band!! Maybe you'll get to see him up close and in person when you come over for a show/s!
You be well too...


Good eeeveniiing to everyone {including Wharfy and susea }.


petri - 9/1/2005 at 12:55 PM

Good afternoon everyone and hello Kim

Nice to hear that you enjoyed your Toronto ABB show. I wish one day ABB would come to Europe and blah blah blah... You know what I mean, the same old moaning that expresses the frustration of European fans. At the moment, with my salary, it's too damn expensive to buy flight tickets, the concert ticket(s) and a hotel room... Maybe I have to start a long time savings plan, LOL...

It's been horrible to watch on TV news the devastation in New Orleans and the state of Lousiana, the words cannot describe my feelings when I think all the individual tragedies that's occured... Happy thing is that I read that Clay and his family as well as David (dbhelm, I think) are alright... except that Clay lost some dear friends in the tragedy.

OK, to end this in a lighter tone, I'm going to meet couple of my old friends here in Helsinki after a hard day's work and have a couple of cold beers...

And Colin, how are you!? Enjoy your Mule concert and your holiday in Swizerland.

Hyypiä!


harvey - 9/1/2005 at 01:05 PM

Hey Petri . . . I am very well my friend, thank you

Looking forward to the Mule next Friday . . . will be meeting up with a bunch of folks for a few beers at a pub near the venue beforehand . . . rumour has it that it is the pub used by the stage crews for most bands who visit . . . if only Warren would drop by for a pint

Enjoy your evening with your friends . . . it is tragedies like Hurricane Katrina and more especially when you hear of cyber friends like Clay losing real friends that makes you take a step back and appreciate what you have.

Cheers to you and your friends from me

Hyypiä!!!


ladymule - 9/2/2005 at 03:50 AM

Petri, hello to you and hope you enjoyed your beers with friends! I too hope the ABB gets to Europe one of these days. I don't understand why they don't tour outside the U.S.{except for the Canadian show/s every two years}. Bands like the Doors are doing successful world-wide tours. Maybe the ABB will think about it given the successful EU Mule tours and isn't Derek off to Europe as well? You never know!
And that long term savings plan would come in handy, ABB or no ABB!

Colin, I want to wish you a most thrilling evening with the Mule and your Mule friends!! {You lucky so and so! } {Hope I get to hear them in the fall! } Have a blast friend. I'll be thinking about you...


ZekovicZoran - 9/2/2005 at 07:40 AM

Dear bro Petri, I can say only like you "...and blah blah blah..."
But, enjoy your beers (I'll drink one for your health!)
Be well and happy, dear S&B!


petri - 9/2/2005 at 01:03 PM

Good afternoon everyone!

Thanks Colin, Kim and Zeka, I had a merry time with my friends, we went to a Czhec bar and restaurant Vltava (that's Moldau in English) right in the city centre beside the central railway station. I had to take approximately 50 steps to catch a train after our jolly evevning...

I wish you all a happy weekend. I'm heading home to catch some sleep...

Hyypiä!


Quinn - 9/3/2005 at 09:09 PM

enjoy the 3 day weekend


FarmerMaggie - 9/3/2005 at 10:22 PM

Hey everybody,
Thank you for the wonderful BD wishes.
Many prayers to all those who need them right now.
It is a beautiful, crisp day here in Virginia.. a tease of Fall. It is a holiday weekend according to the calender, but we are too numb to party.
Time and time again, for more than a year now, this golden thread that ties us all together, has done so much to refresh my faith in humanity.
Much love to all of you!


harvey - 9/4/2005 at 12:20 AM

(((((Maggie))))) . . . hope you are well . . . and best wishes for your friend's convalesence with you


CanPeach - 9/4/2005 at 02:51 AM

Hows your weekend going Colin? Hope you're not getting bored with the wife away


harvey - 9/4/2005 at 10:23 AM

Neil, the weekend is going exceptionally well, thank you and I've managed to keep the boredom at bay quite well so far . . .

England Soccer match and a few coldies yesterday afternoon . . . then watched the Deepest End DVD early evening to get me in the mood for the Mule in London next Friday . . . before going to a friends house for a BBQ and party until the early hours last night

Today I'm just planning on chilling with a few coldies in the summer sunshine . . . but I will take a hike down to the local hypermarket first and pick up a few groceries . . . this is not an official chore you understand, but it is always handy to have a few "good boy" points in reserve . . . helps out with future skiving

Hope y'all are having a great weekend too


CanPeach - 9/4/2005 at 06:51 PM

Hi Colin, nice and quiet here. Kids go back to school Tuesday and tomorrow is a holiday here. Glad to see England won, a little close though

Lets hope they do better in the next game and qualify for '06


ZekovicZoran - 9/5/2005 at 07:55 AM

See you in Deutchland 2006.! Serbia&Montenegro won 2:0 , and now we are 1st in our group. But, next game is in Spain for two days. We will see!
It is enough about sport. Music is more important!
Have a nice week, dear S&B!


petri - 9/5/2005 at 10:10 AM

Hello all,

I hope your Monday is little brighter than mine... I heard yesterday evening that my father's younger brother, my godfather, had accidentally drowned in the river...

Sorry but I lose my concentration, I think I'll better call it a day... Bye for now.


harvey - 9/5/2005 at 12:23 PM

Petri, what can I say that hasn't already been said? Sincere condolences for the loss of your Uncle and good wishes for you and your family to overcome this tragic event


Quinn - 9/5/2005 at 02:42 PM

healing vibes Petri


ladymule - 9/6/2005 at 03:08 AM

Petri, so sorry to hear of your uncle's passing. I wish I could give you a hug in person but a cyber hug will have to do. {{{{{HUG}}}}} I wish I could do more. I {and others here I'm sure} know how it feels to lose loved ones and to go on without them. It hurts and nothing replaces their love in our lives. But it helped me {and still helps} to know that you guys {my on-line ABB friends} care about me. So, all I can do is let you know Petri, that I care about you and hope that care helps to make you feel less alone, and somewhat comforted in the face of the grave loss of your dear loved one.

Lots of love out to you and to ALL...


harvey - 9/6/2005 at 07:10 AM

Very nicely put Kim . . . let's hope today brings a bit more sunshine to us all


petri - 9/6/2005 at 07:12 AM

Good morning my friends,

And thank you ALL for those kind and soothing words, I'll save them in my heart...


ZekovicZoran - 9/6/2005 at 07:18 AM

I am so sorry for your uncle, dear bro Petri. What to say? Life is sometimes very sad. But, you have to go on...


Quinn - 9/7/2005 at 12:45 AM

enjoy your day


ladymule - 9/9/2005 at 01:21 AM

Petri, just to let you know I've been thinking about you and hoping there has been a bit of light for you in these sad days.


ZekovicZoran - 9/9/2005 at 09:54 AM

Hi, my dear S&B!
Yesterday was a nice day for me. I was in one music shop, here in Novi Sad, named MUSIC MIX and was looking for electric guitar for my friend's daughter (she is nice, 13 years old and fan of Green Day, very sweet! ). I took one guitar to try and, of course, started to play intoduction of "In memory of ER". Gay in shop took another guitar and, afer that, we played together a few ABB songs. He is a ABB fan , too, and knows a many things of ABB. Today I took a few ABB CD's and want to make nice suprise to gay with a little gift.
Be happy and well!

Petri, I would like to reinforce Kim's sentiments, I hope you and your family are coping with your loss.

I have just finished work early . . . about to go home then I will be off up to London this afternoon for some pre-show festivities . . . the bring on the MULE!!!

. . . by the way Guys and Gals, I am off on vacation tomorrow for a week in the Alps so I will catch up with you all when I get back next Sunday (18th Sept) . . . have a fun week - I know I will

CHEERS!!!


petri - 9/9/2005 at 12:19 PM

Good afternoon my friends,

Welcome to the thread that never ends...

Thanks for your warm thoughts, ALL of you, and to quote The Beatles "it's getting better all the time..."

I'm glad that it's Friday again and I have a weekend to "relax" with my family, heh heh... Time to crack open a couple of cold ones after the kids are in bed...

Colin, enjoy The Mule and your holiday. I expect a full report after you have returned

Now it's time to say... HYYPIÄ!


harvey - 9/9/2005 at 11:50 PM

Just got back home from London and I'm still buzzing. Warren and the boys were hot tonight and played for just short of 3 hours. First set was excellent, nice mixture and balance of tunes and we got a real nice "Blue Sky" tease in the middle of "I'll Be The One". Actually "tease" doesn't do it justice because it lasted a few minutes of the guitar solo. Second set didn't start off quite as good as the first but sure picked up as it went on and we had a nice little "Les Brers" tease thrown in to "Silent Scream". Encore was dedicated to the poor souls of New Orleans and was a very nice laid back jazzy version of "Watchtower". Excellent night, and great company too. Manchester and Newcastle, get ready for some Mule . . . Warren is really hittin' the note at the moment!!!

Here's the set list . . .

09.09.05 Mean Fiddler - London, U.K.

SET 1:
Mr. Man
Perfect Shelter
About To Rage
Larger Than Life
Sco-mule
I'll Be The One (Blue Sky theme in guitar solo)
32/20 Blues
Banks Of The Deep End
Thorazine Shuffle

SET 2:
My Oh My
Driving Rain
I'm A Ram
Silent Scream>
Drums>
Silent Scream Reprise (Les Brers tease)
Left Coast Groovies
Mother Earth
Blind Man In The Dark

ENCORE:
All Along The Watchtower

Off on vacation tomorrow . . . "see" you next Sunday


ladymule - 9/10/2005 at 03:07 AM

Petri, enjoy the weekend with your family and the coldies!

Zeka, thanks for sharing your ABB/music store story. Nice to hear you had one of those impromptu life moments of fun, collegiality, and ABB music--a jam in other words!

Colin, thanks for posting the set list and WOW what a set list! I'm totally jealous!! Glad you had a great time! Lucky you!
Oh yeah, and have a great holiday in the Alps!

Love to ALL...

Hello all,

Silent around here... I've been really busy with my work, honestly... It's grey and rainy here in Finland but luckily the weather gets better for tomorrow. Have a nice day you all!


ladymule - 9/16/2005 at 03:32 AM

Hello out there in ABB land!

Petri, hope you have a good day too {with sunshine}! We've been getting lots of sun and warm days lately. A few days were even hot and humid. Bring on the A/C! Evenings have been cool though. I'm not looking forward to winter. Ugggh. The Maple leaves are starting to fall, reminding me that winter is around the next corner. Ah well, hopefully, we'll have a warm and sunny fall. So far, so good.


ZekovicZoran - 9/16/2005 at 08:46 AM

Dear Lady, don't talk about a winther, please!
Here in Novi Sad is very nice, warm and suny day. O, yes! Today started EuroBasket 2005 in my country. One most important part is here, in my town: Serbia&Montenegro plays here!!!
We are better than USA!!!
Have a nice day, my dear S&B!

Happy Tuesday to everyone... where's everyone? It seems to have been quiet around here lately.

I'm suffering from an inflamed tendon on my left shoulder and am eating painkillers that make me a wee sleepy... Nice... No, seriously folks, nothing serious but it's a bit of a nuisance, my left shoulder I mean. I have to take it easy...

See you(?) around!

[Edited on 9/27/2005 by petri]


harvey - 9/28/2005 at 08:02 AM

Hello Peachy Peeps, hope you are all keeping well

Petri, sorry to hear you are in pain, I had that exact same problem in my right shoulder about 10 years ago after doing a marathon swim for charity . . . it took about 6 months to completely clear up, although that was partly due to the fact that I was allergic to the anti-inflamatory drugs so had to rely in physiotherapy alone . . . ouch!!!

Meanwhile, I had a great vacation in the Alps . . . got most of the way up Mont Blanc . . . ok so I cheated a bit because there was this cable car thingy and I didn't see the point in walking behind a Taxi . . . but I did go for a three hour hike back down from the second highest peak . . . glorious scenery, wonderful weather, great food and a micro brewery in the town where I stayed

Good to be back . . . have a great day


harvey - 9/28/2005 at 08:03 AM

Oops . . . nearly forgot . . .

HYYPIÄ


petri - 9/28/2005 at 08:33 AM

Well Colin, great to have you back and happy to hear that your holiday was such a joy. I am living in hope to get in Zürich next year on a business trip... Thanks Colin, luckily my shoulder isn't in a very bad state yet but as I said it's a bit of a nuisance. Luckily I'm not allergic to anti-infammatory drugs and yesterday I had a physiotherapist here at work... luxury. Anyway, I will write you more very soon. Hyypiä!

And good late morning to everyone!


petri - 9/28/2005 at 12:58 PM

And good afternoon to me... and to you my Peachy friends.


Quinn - 9/29/2005 at 11:01 PM

Yup Quinn, I'm fine... Have a nice weekend and same goes with ALL of you out there!


petri - 10/3/2005 at 12:14 PM

Hello everyone... I sincerely hope that this thread isn't dying a slow death. Seems like me and Quinn and Harvey have been the only ones here lately. Kim, Zeka and others, where are you?


harvey - 10/3/2005 at 12:40 PM

Perhaps it is to expensive here in the International Club Class Lounge . . . maybe we should cut beer prices in half and see who turns up

Happy new week folks


petri - 10/3/2005 at 01:07 PM

I think the prices are usual EU standard Maybe we shoud add some more American brews on the list? And I think our burgers compete with any American burger...

Happy Monday and new week to you all!


FarmerMaggie - 10/3/2005 at 05:39 PM

Not here for the beer...
Nice fall day here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The nights are crisp but the days are still warm. The leaves here have not yet started to change, but they will be in full glory soon enough.
Our days are getting shorter and their shadows get longer.
Much love to you guys!


Quinn - 10/4/2005 at 12:23 AM

Hi Petri and hello to ALL! I guess everybody takes a break from the site once in a while for various reasons {holidays or busy or otherwise}. You were gone for weeks, Zeka for weeks, Colin takes absences. We all need or have to take breaks once in a while. Anyway, here I am and thanks for wondering where the hell I've been. It's nice that you care. I love you too!

On Sunday Sept. 25, my hubby and a couple of friends of ours went to the Historic Distillery District in Toronto to attend the New Orleans Musicians Benefit Concert in Toronto. Numerous stages and numerous jazz bands donating their professional services to raise money for all musicians in New Orleans. Yesterday, I heard that $15,000.00 was raised! It feels good to have made even a small contribution to the folks in New Orleans.

Tomorrow night, we are off to Toronto to see Jethro Tull. The band is recreating Aqualung. I'm not the biggest Tull fan but I'm sure I'll gain a greater appreciation for them after seeing them live. That's what happened to me after I saw the ABB live the first time!

We've had a couple of most excellent weather days, very warm, summerlike. The warm weather is supposed to stay until Thursday and then we'll be getting cooler temps. I don't like cooler temps. My plan is to wallow in warm air for the next few days.

Lots of love to all and nice to see you Ms. Maggie.

PS, hope your shoulder is feeling better Petri.


ZekovicZoran - 10/4/2005 at 10:21 AM

I'm here again. Dear Lady, you are right. Everyone want to take a break (but not forever!). Dear bro Petri, don't worry, everything is O.K.! John Mayall is on now (that is really a little, little break, but next thing will be, of course, ABB).
Be well and see you around!
Zeka


harvey - 10/4/2005 at 12:32 PM

Hello all you worldwide Peachy peeps . . . hope you are all well.

Kim, I hope that Jethro Tull are good for you . . . I used to like them a lot back in the early days . . . saw them in London at the Rainbow in 74 or 75 . . . Thick As A Brick tour.

Aqualung was an excellent album, but I was not overly impressed when they tried to recreate it last year on the XM Radio Station's "Then Again Live" . . . Ian Anderson's voice was not up to it on the night, but hopefully they will have got it better by now . . . perhaps I shouldn't be so critical . . . I'm sure you will enjoy the show, there is usually a lot of humour involved, almost like a circus act at times

Zeka . . . take it easy my friend . . . don't get too much Mayall in your ABB stream now


petri - 10/4/2005 at 01:12 PM

Hello everyone,

Soooo nice to see so many friendly faces around here!

Kim, I wasn't purely complaining, I was just missing you guys! I understand perfectly well that one must occasionally take a break from here, I took a 5 week hiatus myself during the summer as you pointed out. But I just missed you all.

I hope and am sure you'll like Jethro Tull, they are in top form even today just listen to their CD or watch DVD "Living With The Past". Tull is one of my British favorites with their mix of rock, blues, jazz and folk. I have kicked myself in the a** for not going to see them when they visited Helsinki a few years ago... I hope that they will come again, I'll be first in the line. And thanks for asking, but the medication doesn't seem to work too well for my left shoulder... and I'm a lefty. I shall have to see the doctor again.

John Mayall?! Is he still alive? (only joking Zeka ) Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton album is a "white blues" (oh these labels!) classic, I used to listen to that quite a lot in the past but somehow I lost interest in Mayall...

OK, enjoy and behave yourselves

HYYPIÄ

[Edited on 10/4/2005 by petri]


FarmerMaggie - 10/4/2005 at 03:40 PM

Wow, Kim! I love Tull. I know you'll enjoy the show. Hey, a bad day with Ian Anderson is better than a good day at work. Love to all you worldwide Peaches!


ladymule - 10/4/2005 at 05:03 PM

Hey ALL!

I really appreciate and want to thank you all very much for your Tull insights and wishes for a good show! I have a better sense of what to expect tonight and even feel more confident that I'm going to enjoy the music. Y'all are the best.

Petri, you might want to start thinking about non-western treatment for your shoulder. I'm no Dr. but I know that anti-inflammatory pills are not cures and should not be used long-term. You might want to think about getting acupuncture. Sandy was having trouble with his right forearm and had really good results with a number of acupunture treatments. Just something to think about.
BTW, it's nice to be missed. I missed you too when you were away on holiday. But here we all are, together again...

Love to all and to all a GREAT day!!


ABB_shroomer - 10/4/2005 at 07:41 PM

Hi brothers & sisters,

I'm new to the peachy corner of the web (not the brothers), so just saying hello to all, I hope that all of y'all are having a better day than mine so far (knee surgery rehab). Just popped in Peakin' at the Beacon, it's amazing what the brothers will do to a crummy mood. Hope everyone is doing well! Can't wait for next tour, already looking forward to it!

Keep on keepin' on!

ABB_shroomer


harvey - 10/5/2005 at 07:22 AM

Good morning all

Welcome "shroomer" - I'm looking forward to next March already myself - I will again be making the pilgrimage from the UK to the Beacon for 2 or 3 shows

Kim - hope you enjoyed . . . "Sitting on a Park bench, eyeing little girls with bad intent - hey Aqualung"

Petri . . . when I had tendonitis in my shoulder and I found that I was allergic to anti-inflamatory drugs it was a combination of Physiotherapy and resting the arm as much as possible . . . I know it is difficult, but you are just going to have to learn to lift that pint of beer with the other hand

Zeka . . . May-all your shows be ABB

Maggie - love to you and to all you other International Loungers


ZekovicZoran - 10/5/2005 at 07:47 AM

Bro Colin, you are really doctor! Your therapy is the best. I think that bro Petri will be as new after a few beers. Dear bro Petri, now without yokes, did you try some swimming for your arm?
Dear Colin, what you think about October-all ABB shows? Ha-ha! Yes, do you really like JT (the favorite band of my wife)?
Hi to all and be well!

And belated welcome to ABB_shroomer and speedy recovery! Maggie, wonderful to see you here, you should pop in more often. We have excellent Finnish coffee (strong roast) here...

Thank you all for your concern and advice. Kim, you're absolutely right about anti-infammatory drugs. Luckily I haven't had the need to use prescription drugs often during my lifetime, I have been actually a healthy SOB. Let's see what my doctor would say about acupuncture... BTW Kim, what did you think about Jethro Tull? Did you like it?

And Zeka, you read my mind: as soon as I get rid of the infammation I shall start swimming. I used to be an avid swimmer but somehow I gave it up... Laziness perhaps ;-)

OK, I have to continue working. See you around!

Hey 'shroomer', what he said.

Petri, you are so sweet! Thank you. I'm a rabid caffeine junkie and mostly use a light roast for the higher caffeine content. But, I do blend it about 3:1 with the dark roasts for a richer flavour. Sounds yummy.

Good evening all!

Welcome to the site ABB_shroomer!

Colin, Petri and Maggie, I really enjoyed the show. I don't know their repertoire very well but Sandy said they played the whole Aqualung album except for his favourite, Wind Up. They also played other material including the jazz tune Serenade to a Cuckoo which is one of Sandy's favourites. A very talented violinist {Lucia...} sat in on a lot of their material and was featured on some pieces like The Godfather Theme {!}, some of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and Led Zep's Cashmir {sp?}. All the playing was first rate and it was interesting to hear some unusual instruments for a rock concert, like mandolin, accordian, glockinspiel {sp?}, and recorders. I really liked Ian's flute playing and singing. I thought his voice was mixed too low overall so that was disappointing. The best mix they had was when the drummer used his small kit at the front of the stage. He had a larger, second kit at the back which he played during the rockier numbers but then the drums and bass tended to drown out Ian's voice, Lucia's violin and the guitar. Small complaints though. All in all, it exceeded my expectations and I would absolutely go see them again.
Maggie, Tull is playing Norfolk VA. on October 14. That's what it says on Sandy's shirt anyway. Is Norfolk near where you live at all?

Zeka, I agree, I miss our bro Purple too. Where are you Erik?

Love to all...


ladymule - 10/7/2005 at 03:10 AM

I also enjoyed the beautiful warm air, and the beer and nachos at the Hard Rock Cafe before the show.


harvey - 10/7/2005 at 07:25 AM

Kim, so glad you enjoyed Tull . . . back in the day I used to love their unique blend of folk, jazz and rock music backing up intelligent and perceptive lyrics.

Happy Friday to you all . . . hope you have a great weekend coming up


petri - 10/7/2005 at 01:02 PM

Hello you all,

Kim, I can only repeat what Colin already said, glad you liked Tull.

Our dear sister pixielf informed me today that Santana is coming to Helsinki, Finland in April, 2006. Wooo-hooo! I will definitely go and see them. It was twenty years ago since I saw them last time in concert here...

OK, time to say bye now, have a nice weekend you all!


Quinn - 10/8/2005 at 12:24 AM

TGIF
GOOD VIBES TO ALL


ladymule - 10/9/2005 at 03:36 AM

Thanks Colin and Petri!

Colin, I wish I could've heard Ian's lyrics better! Because his voice was mixed too low, I couldn't really understand a word he said! So, in order to appreciate his intelligent and perceptive lyrics I'll have to listen to the albums with a close ear. Thanks for the heads-up, friend.

Petri, that's great news about Santana in April! I've not seen him live but I probably should. Please let me {us} know what you think of him and the show. If you are impressed, I will probably go see him next time he visits Toronto.

We just picked up Mule tix for Thurs. Dec. 1 {Toronto}. Whoo Hoo. I'm excited already. How's the band sounding these days Colin?!

Lots of love to all...

I have the XM Radio "Then Again Live" version of Aqualung that they did last year - if you would like a copy PM me with your address and I'll send it to you

Mule were in fine form last month when I saw them over here in London . . . I really don't think there can be a bad Mule show . . . I guess the only problem might be that they have such a huge repertoir (especially with all the cover songs that they do) that you probably won't get to hear all your favourites at one show - so if they are playing more than one gig within reach of you it is well worthwhile going to 2 shows because they don't normally repeat any songs on 2 adjacent shows


Quinn - 10/11/2005 at 12:26 AM

ZekovicZoran - 10/11/2005 at 07:28 AM

Good morning, my dear S&B!
Yesterday my older daughter Sonja became a teenager (she is 13 now). In her room were a lot of friends and lot of music (that kids are strange: Music like Avril Lavigne...?! ). But from my room only sounds of ABB!
Have a nice day!


ladymule - 10/12/2005 at 01:44 AM

Hello, ALLman and Woman friends!

Colin, thank you very much for your sweet and kind offer to send me the XM 'Then Again Live' show! After I read your post I mentioned to Sandy that you offered to send us that show. He said, 'I think we have it' and opened up the Tull Aqualung disc they gave us when we went into the show the other night. So...yes, we do have it . Thanks again, Colin...
Regarding Mule, I agree, I don't think there can be a bad Mule show.
I'll have to be content with only one Mule show--no adjacent Mule shows for me--but I'm grateful and very excited to have even one. A favourite from the new album they didn't play last year is Silent Scream and I'd quite like to hear it this time around. {Are you listening Mr. Warren?! }

Zeka, please wish your lovely daughter Sonja a very Happy 13th Birthday!! from me. And Happy Day to you too, dad!
And next time you have to listen to Avril Lavigne, just think of it as an opportunity to assimilate a little bit of culture from Napanee, Ontario, Canada which just happens to be about 3 hours from where I live... Ah, forget it...turn up the ABB volume instead!!

Love to all, and to all, a good night!


harvey - 10/12/2005 at 12:57 PM

Kim - they played Silent Scream in London last month when I went to see them, so it is definitely in the roster. You could always try to get to speak to Warren at the interval - one guy in Manchester managed to do that and made a special request and Warren put it in the second set for him - that was cool


ZekovicZoran - 10/13/2005 at 08:29 AM

Hi, Lady, and thanks! How are you? Yesterday was a great party in my country. I'm talking about football. We won and will go directly from the 1st place of our group to Germany next year. Maybe my country as a ex "land of basketbal" will be a "country of football"?
Have a nice day and be happy!
Zeka


harvey - 10/13/2005 at 09:19 AM

Congratulations Zeka . . . England beat Poland last night to win their group too . . . but we will need to play much better than we have been doing of late if we are going to have any impact in the finals in Germany next summer - lets hope it is England v Serbia in the Final


ZekovicZoran - 10/13/2005 at 08:37 PM

Dear bro Colin, it sounds great: Germany 2006, final play England vs. Serbia&Montemegro!


T-Sizzle - 10/13/2005 at 09:47 PM

yes sir this is great
-tc


ladymule - 10/14/2005 at 01:33 AM

Good evening to all!

Hey tc, welcome to the thread! Hope you are having a good day.

Colin, that is a very good idea and thank you for the suggestion. Another idea is for me to politely ask him for the song when I'm standing right in front of him in the first row , or I could hold up a placard in front of me with the song title a la Bob Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues! I'll probably just keep yelling {screaming?} Siiilent Screeeeaaaaam...
And congrats on the English 'football' success, too. That would be soccer in this country?

Zeka, congrats to Serbia/Montenegro as well!! Hey, I do love a party! We usually only get excited around big hockey wins {and I usually don't care }. I remember the Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series {baseball} a number of years ago and that was a big deal here. Again though, I didn't get too excited about it. I really enjoy tennis. I wish we had a Canadian tennis player that was at the top of his or her game that I could support. I'm looking forward to the next Grand Slam, the Australian Open which I believe is in January {?}.

You guys have a great day, ok?
Love from.....me


ladymule - 10/14/2005 at 01:38 AM

Oh yeah, I forgot Golf. I like Golf too and the Canadian Mike Weir is a big deal here {and he's from my province Ontario too}. Mike won the Masters a couple of years ago. Now, that was exciting!


ZekovicZoran - 10/14/2005 at 07:17 AM

Hi, Lady! I think that our little gang here is a great sports fan. But, my favorite way for any sport is by TV in the nice company of a few beers! Ha-ha!
Have nice day, dear S&B, and, off course, nice weekend, too!


petri - 10/14/2005 at 01:11 PM

Hello all,

It's been a couple of busy days here at work so I haven't been lurking around too much...

No success for Finland in football (soccer): We lost 0-1 against Rumania and 1-3 against The Czech Republic... But congrtas to you, Zeka and Colin, for the success of Serbia-Montenegro and England teams.

OK, another working week behind so let me wish you all a very nice weekend. Hopefully I have more time to hang around next week...

Heippa!


CanPeach - 10/15/2005 at 12:45 AM

Kim, that sounds like it was an awesome show.
Norfolk is on the coast, about 5 hours drive for us.
There was no way we could make it for Tull...
So many shows... so little money
But, Henry will be there for Steve Kimock on Wednesday... with or without me!


Quinn - 10/16/2005 at 11:07 PM

ladymule - 10/17/2005 at 03:27 AM

Hey all...lots of love out to all you special, loving peeps!

Zeka, yes, yes, yes, I enjoy beer with sports on tv too, depending on what time of day it is of course! "Woke up this morning, got myself a beer.." Only coffee in the morning for me though... Really...

Maggie, hi hon! That's too bad you couldn't make the Tull show considering how much you like them. I definitely understand though about the so many shows and so little money thing!
Speaking of, Sandy is trying to talk me into going to see Bob Weir's band Ratdog on Halloween and so far I've said no, I'm not a Bob Weir fan. Do you know/like Ratdog?
And I'm curious if you ever go to see the Mule. Are you a Mule fan at all?
Last question Maggie... , did you design Ron Holloway's website? Everything about it suggests your creative and talented hand!
Finally, please give Henry a hug for me and I'm sending out a hug to you too!

Kim, I love Mule(I love Warren) and we've seen them several times, including one with Woody. We try to catch any that are within a day's drive.
I do like Ratdog, and to see Bobby on Halloween will be a special kind of Magick. The shows that the Dead did on Halloween were always exceptional. If I could afford the airfare, this is definitely one I would not miss. Funny thing, Jerry is/was always my first love, but most of my fav Dead tunes are "Bobby tunes".
Ratdog was our son's very first show. It was right after Jerry died and Ian was just 5 weeks old. Rob Wasserman did {goosebumps} Amazing Grace and I couldn't stop crying.
I'm not sure of the current line up right now, but I doubt you will be disappointed.
And, no I didn't have anything to do with Ron's site... but, thanks for the compliment!
I did check it out and I love it. Ron Holloway's throw into any mix is just lusciously rich. I've actually been groovin' on him all day today... mmm, mmm, mmm!
I don't play with the graphics like I used to. I could come down here and entertain myself for hours on end, lol! But the server problems during the Beacon shows stopped me from that and machine gunning as well. It was fun while it lasted.

Do go to Ratdog. Even if the music turns out to be average, you will have a fun evening. I can't think of a better place to be on such a special night!
AaaaaaaaOooooo!
Full Moon hugs to you and Sandy from all of us.


petri - 10/18/2005 at 01:07 PM

Good afternoon everyonel,

The autumn has really hit us here, the weather is turning chilly after a long warm spell and the rains have arrived.

Late Night with Conan O'Brien is shown here with a few days delay and yesterday evening we Finns witnessed Conan's hilarious campaign for the re-election of the sitting president of Finland, Ms. Tarja Halonen - because he thinks he looks just like her. I don't know if that's a compliment for either parties involved... Anyway, quite amusing...

OK, have to go now, my day is done. See you around!


ladymule - 10/19/2005 at 02:33 AM

Hi Maggie...thanks for your warmth, for answering my questions, and for sharing your opinion and advice about the Bob Weir show. As a result, I'm giving serious consideration to seeing Ratdog. Too bad you can't fly up for the show. That would clinch it for sure!!

Petri, I read somewhere on the board that Neil Young will be the musical guest on Conan's show from Nov. 1 to Nov. 4. {Not sure if you saw the post or not}.
BTW, I missed the Conan episode you mentioned but it sounds very funny--classic Conan.

Hope all are well.


harvey - 10/19/2005 at 12:30 PM

Back at work today . . . been off since last Friday with a "mans" cold, and you know how bad they can be

"Womens" colds are not so severe - they can't be because my wife still manages to cook, clean, shop and do all the housework

With a "mans" cold, however, all you can manage to do is sit in front of the TV, sip Whiskey and watch sports - and even that takes an absolutely monumental and brave effort on our behalves - such dedication to our favourite teams

Anyway, apart from an annoying cough that will not go away I'm feeling much better today - hope you are all keeping well too


ZekovicZoran - 10/20/2005 at 10:24 AM

Dear bro Colin, I so much like to see your words: I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy . . .
Dear S&B, have a nice day as I have!

Of course, we guys know-you don't enjoy it quite as much when you're sick.
Hope you feel better soon- have you tried the scotch and Nyquil cold remedy?


petri - 10/21/2005 at 10:58 AM

Aaaahhh, Friday... good afternoon all,

Colin, I'm glad to hear thet you're feeling better and I hope that you'll get rid of that cough soon. This is the season of runny noses and autumnal flus... (Knock on wood)

The weather in this part of the world is turning colder but it still relatively sunny. But not for long: weather forecast has promised us rains, rains, rains in the weekend. A good reason to stay indoors watching telly and sipping beer ...moderately. Nah, I have to take time to be with the kids, I see them so little during the weeks, it's always near 6 p.m. when I get home and it's bedtime for the kids at 8 p.m. As much as I hate the phrase "quality time" I try to give them that by just being present, being WITH them, no matter what we do: be that reading a story book, doing a puzzle, drawing with them and so on. Sometimes it's hard when I'm tired and both my son and my daughter are fighting for my attention, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, I won't have much time to lurk around here next week, I'll be going to a little two-day-conference out of town, subject is Digitizing and preserving audio and video tapes. I hope I'll learn and hear something useful there... I'll be back on Thursday. So until then,

Have a nice weekend you all!

HYYPIÄ!

Hey all, thanks for the good wishes - I'm feeling much better thank you - but still plagued with a cough that sounds like a Howler Monkey's mating call

Henry - I like your prescription - but I take mine with a little Rum

Bright sunny weekend here - might just have to take a slow stroll around to the pub - have a nice one everybody

Hey, Colin. Glad to hear you're doing better. The rum must be working.


Hey Kim,
"""..."Oh, why can't a woman be more like a man?".... """
I have no clue... ?
Henry was lurking around here Thursday night.
We were still hummin' with a post show glow from seeing Steve Kimock in VA Beach on Wednesday.
..a road trip full of incredible stuff and Kimock was the icing on top...
His music is kind of spacy, but it's just absolutely beautiful... Melodious jams spun with driving rythyms ebbing and flowing into these intric threads of multi-coloured harmonies winding in and out of the crowd and around the room smoothly weaving and unfolding a flowing musical silk...
{sigh}
what a night to remeber...
And then we capped the show with a walk on the beach... Which all sounds really romantic, but it was actually more the equivilant of a Bonzo Dog Boy Fan Club reunion field trip into the Twilight Zone.

Petri, take notes on you seminar and you can give us an inservice when you get back. I'd love to hear what you learn. We've been reading up on this and I've heard of people baking their tapes on low heat to stop the break down. We got tons of old shows on cassett, but we're afraid to even mess around with them.

Fickle falls days here - 80'f one day 50'f the next. The leaves aren't making a very good show here this year. It was just too dry in August and September. We are headed to the mountains in Floyd, Va (across the Blue Rige Parkway from here ) this week end.
The colours could be a bit better in the higher elevations...

Have a great weekend, everybody!


Quinn - 10/22/2005 at 11:35 PM

Maggie, sounds like a fantastic evening you and Henry had on Wed.! I'm happy for you. I'm feeling a little under the weather today. Treated ourselves to some sparkling wine and peach schnapps {Fuzzy Ladies minus the OJ... } while we played Scrabble and listened to music {including Bob Weir's album Ace and a bit of the Very Best of The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band...Monster Mash...just in time for Halloweeeeeen }. And I'm paying for it today!
Hope you have a beautiful time in the mountains Maggie and get to see some lovely colour. Lots of colour around here.

Well, don't the weeks just fly by . . . here we are at Friday already.

Going to a Football (Soccer) match tommorrow afternoon, followed by a Thai meal with some friends in the evening

Then on Sunday I am going to spend the day clearing all the accumulated rubbish out of my garage but I will enjoy that because I have a lot of good music to listen to while I am doing it thanks to some very good people here

Hope you all have a great weekend too

HYYPIÄ!.


ZekovicZoran - 10/28/2005 at 08:39 AM

Dear Colin, we will together on Sunday (but only in my mind). Without joke, the lot of job is waiting on my ranch at Sunday (it is 20 km far away from my home, at mountain (no Jam) named Fruska gora. It is not a really mountain, only about 600 m high).
Wish a nice and happy weekend to all of you!

Hey Kim!
Sorry to hear you were a bit 'fuzzy' and hope all is well by now.
Sounds like you guys had a pretty good time there as well. Our favorite 'dates' have always turned out to be the ones we have had at home.
We have a new addition to our Halloween soundtracks this year, (it took us a while to find this) - Mannheim Steamroller Halloween. One disc is music and the other is sound effects. Fun stuff for groovin' goulies!
Much love
&
Happy Haunting!

Aaaaooooooooo...


ladymule - 10/30/2005 at 07:17 PM

Hey Maggie, nice to see you! Glad you found a new Halloween album to add to your collection. That's always fun! We did some Halloween partying yesterday {this morning?!} in Toronto. Went to see The Happy Pals in the afternoon {4-8 pm}--"Is everybody happy?!"--and then The Nationals in the evening. Danced, drank, Halloweened, conversed and laughed. Didn't get home and to bed untill 6 am. Yikes. Hope you and your family have a lovely Halloween. I think we're staying home, no Ratdog for me. I partied enough last night! Much love to you and yours too!

Hope all are well and happy!

I thought this would be a calmer week but what the heck, it's the same old rat race... not much lurking around here I'm afraid. But I wanted to stop by and say hello to all of my cyber friends.

If it's written in nice handwriting it can't be me, LOL ! Though I wish it would be me... only my wife (Leena) would become suspicious if I signed a card with some Mona ... But anyway, I'll keep my eyes open for this particular show, it'll be probably shown today or during the weekend.

Has anybody noticed my Derek & The Dominos 1970-12-01 freebie offer on trade section? Even if the offer's closed now, if any of you want that show just PM your name and address and I'll send it your way. And Colin, don't try anything, just wait for Santa to come...

The weather is warm (+ 9 degrees C) but lousy today, it's raining and it's grey grey grey... And the days are getting so short, it's dark when I get home from work. That's wintertime for you folks... We have All Saints' Day tomorrow here and some of us are desperatly trying to ape you Statesfolk (and why not Canadians, too) by celebrating Halloween in a true American fashion. All those scary masks and other stuff connencted with Halloween is sold here. But I won't need a mask, hahahaha... (diabolical laughter)

OK, it's Friday and I'd better calm down. When I get home it's time for kids and after their bedtime for some cold beers and maybe shows that have been piling on my player. Oh yes, and a kiss for the wife.

Have a merry weekend and see you soon!

HYYPIÄ!

Hi!

Petri, nice to see you around! Thank you very much for your kind offer. About a month ago, Sandy and I picked up a used Derek and the Dominos The Layla Sessions 20th Anniversary Edition box set for $15.95! We were pretty excited about that! So, we'd love that show and thank you again.
PS, have a great weekend with Mo.. ah, I mean Leena and your kids!

Hope everybody has a great weekend!

Hello my friends!

Yesterday I took my 4-year-old son to a "Kidsoccer" for 3-6 year old children which is a 12 week course during which they get to know the basics of soccer and to "play" in a group. The main point is that it is a good way to get some excersice and have fun at the same time... I am not going to coach my kid to become a professional footballer, I am not projecting my own secret ambitions to my son, LOL. Anyway, at first my son was quite shy and a bit reserved but soon forgot all that stuff and was really excited and enjoying himself. Every child received a T-shirt and own football!

Warm autumn continues, no sign of frost, snow or suchlike. I'm beginning to get worried... really. Is the global climate starting to change radically? The statistics say that this year has been the warmest in the timespan that such statistics has been made... And because the oceans stay warmer longer time, it causes these hurricanes...

What's on the bright side? Only 6½ weeks to Christmas, so behave yourselves, Santa's little helpers are taking notes...

Cheers!

Petri . . . it's great to get involved with your children's sporting activities . . . and as you say there is nothing better for them than exercise and fun. By the way, I don't believe you about not projecting your own secret ambitions on your son (LOL).

I played football (soccer to our American friends) throughout my educational life, representing both my School and University, and also played for my local Village team in one of the English Amateur Leagues. I found it made for a great balanced education.

I have to admit that whilst I didn't expect my two sons to become professional footballers, as I had been quite good at the game myself I did hope that they would at least achieve a similar level and get the same satisfaction out of the game that I did. They obviously took after their Mother, however, as neither of them proved to have the co-ordination required for ball sports but, like her, were still very athletic and took to Swimming and Diving instead.

My eldest son when 14 actually competed in the British National High Board Diving Championships. He was disappointed to finish 23rd, but as I pointed out to him, it is no disgrace to be 23rd best in your country at anything. Soon after that however, he discovered girls and all other "sporting" activities went by the wayside.

Anyway Petri, I know you have many happy Father and Son years to come, best wishes to you.

And good wishes to all the rest of my Peachy friends too


petri - 11/9/2005 at 02:14 PM

Thanks, Colin... BTW, hope you received my PM today.

My day is done, I'm off... Cheerio!


ladymule - 11/11/2005 at 04:14 AM

Hi all!

Just a note to say 'hi!' and that it was a very cold day today, into the -C due to the windchill. But, it is supposed to jump to the low teens C for the next few days and that gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside and puts a smile on my face! Enjoy the warm air while you can Petri. I'm sure we'll get the bitter cold soon enough! { I do hear you about the global warming thing though. I wonder about that too.}

Lots of love to all...


petri - 11/11/2005 at 02:14 PM

Hello everyone!

It's Friday so have a great weekend and enjoy yourselves. It's Farther's Day here on Sunday...

Heippa!


harvey - 11/14/2005 at 11:46 AM

Hello all my Peachy Pals in the International Club lounge, hope the new week is off to a good start for you all

My cheeks are still swollen like a greedy hamster I'm afraid, just got back from the Doc's and he has signed me off work for another week.

That's the good side of it - the bad side is that I can't go out in public either as all the time my cheeks are swollen I am highly contageous, so no pub for me

Just as well I have 5 cases of beer stashed away in my garage

At least I can keep myself busy working on Xmas presents - Petri knows what I mean


ZekovicZoran - 11/14/2005 at 12:24 PM

Hi, my dear S&B!
I wasn't here for a long time. But... There is a short story: At the start of NATO bombing in year 1999. (I am sure that you know that sad story) i got a some kind of shock (little kids and so on) and, because I have a contact lenses, had some kind of infection of my right eye (the consequence was that I could see only 5%, it is like you can see only dark and light). After that, injections directly in the eye and, nothing better, but something new: cataracta (I am not sure that is correct word, or kataracta or katarakta). The D-day was November 5th: OPERATION!!! Now I have a new life!!! I can see now 100%. Still cann't belive that. Thanks God!!!
And, now I am here forever!!!


harvey - 11/14/2005 at 12:41 PM

That is wonderful news Zeka . . . you could not ask for a better Christmas present


ladymule - 11/15/2005 at 05:33 AM

Hello to all!

Petri, wishing you a most happy Finnish Father's Day!!

Colin, sorry to hear you are not 100%. If you don't mind my asking, what is wrong with your cheeks?! Is it related to your earlier illness/cold/cough? I truly hope you are feeling better soon. In the meantime, I hope your beer stash works well as a sedative and mood-enhancer of sorts!

Zeka, as Colin says, that is wonderful news!! I'm so happy for you, my friend! "I can see clearly now..." Here's to being here forever!


ZekovicZoran - 11/15/2005 at 08:23 AM

Thank you so much, dear Lady and dear Colin!
Colin, belive that you will be better (no better, THE BEST). I think there is a something in the air possible to help to good people. And, we ARE the GOOD people, I'm sure!
Have a nice day, dear S&B!
