For the musicians and artists in the group - though way
off topic here's a heads up.
Happened on an extraoridnary performance tonight - celebrating the life
of George Harrison. More musicians per square inch on one stage than
anywhere else in the world - Ravi Shankar and his “band”, directed by
his daughter, Michael Palen doing “I’m a Lumber Jack” with the
accompanying RC Mounities choir, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Ringo Star
and three other drummers, Tom Petty, Paul McCartney and a flock and a

most awesome displays of musical talent I've ever witnessed, from three or
thirty three. Even crossed generations, my 18 year old daughter was wowed.
Does Elvis Costello really deserve that? :)
I recorded it last night. Haven't had a chance to see it yet. LOML is
going to watch Survivor and Apprentice tonight. I guess we'll stay
married in spite of her tastes in TV. Mayhap I'll watch it tomorrow.
