Summer of Love


Summer is here (though not officially just yet). The band is heading up to our annual show at Wavy Gravy's "Camp Winnarainbow" for the adult camp dance. The following week the horde of happy kids descend on the camp for several sessions of fun & inspiration.

Time of the Season


I always liked the Zombie's song "Time of the Season". I am not sure why. It always reminds me of driving around  with the windows open in the summertime

Rant Therapy part 3 I think


Well, we did our show at Winnarainbow on 6/17. We have been playing there for 5 years now. Before I get into it I should say that it was quiet a success.

Rant Terapy pt. 2


We did our annual Bob Dylan tribute the other night (5/21). It was the 7th annual such concert.

Rant Therapy part 1


Howdy folks,

 It's been a while since my last post. I've had a hard time getting the gumption to write anything but I'll give it a shot. Many people have missed reading Sylvia's blog so I hope this fills the gap although my posts might not be as kind and polite. Sorry about that. I can't imagine that anyone will actually read this stuff but I'm hoping it will be good therapy for me and maybe a reader or two. I will turn on the comment feature just in case anyone wants to comment or even complain.

Dead of Winter


                                     Dead of Winter

Well, it is certainly winter here. It's not as bad as many have it back East but it has been pretty cold. Temps have been down in the 20's at night, fish pond has frozen over (the fish are in a kind of suspended animation under the ice),everything is crunchy underneath your feet and we are going through fire wood at a rapid pace. So glad to have Richard and his firewood stash close by up the road.
