    So sad for all the tragic losses in Paradise due to the fire. Will be interesting to see how DSO alters their schedule in February when they were planning to play there...I like the Ashland double header idea.......

    Right on,,well I guess we met at Red Rocks then? If so, I will remember your face next time I see you. I'm not always good with names but I typically won't forget a face......red rocks was epic!

    Wolf coming to Lowell

    Extremely cool that the owner lets Jeff take Wolf out for a spin.

    Yes yes yes PG. Winter dormancy,,time for root growth,,gathering energy for spring bust out...all part of the natural cycle. The seeds that were silent all burst in to bloom and decay... night comes so quiet, it's close on the heels of the day... The February run lines up so nicely with the returning of the light...cool way to celebrate Imbolc! 🍁

    I don't know much about baseball but I love the story of how Dock Ellis pitched a perfect no-hitter back on 6/12/70...

    Death Don't Have No Mercy

    ...in this land Well today the world is minus yet another good man. After a 10 month battle with cancer, my good friend of 25 years, Christopher set sail last night for his ultimate voyage. Our community is in grief today as we let go of such a bright spirit... Christopher was a husband, a father of two boys (6 and 8), a sailor, a juggler, a fisherman (30+ yrs seasons in Alaska), an electrician, a sawyer, a furniture maker, a dancer and lover of music, a jester, a mentor, a soccer coach, an old-school home-brewer, a kiwi grower, creator and host of annual Brewfest (still on a nearly 30 year run), a mechanic, co-creator of Juggle-Fest, friend to all ages and all kinds of people, and an open-hearted dude all the way.... And honestly, that's just the quick, short list! To say he lived life to the max is definitely telling it like it is. Christopher was always the one who would motivate you to spontaneously head out for a full moon walk up the hill on like a random Wednesday night at 10 pm in the dark of winter. When you reached the top of the hill you would witness him yell out into the ethers as loud as he could: "THANK YOU!!" to whomever or whatever was listening...to life itself, really. I learned much from him,,not the least of which was to try and return to gratitude as often as possible... Over the weekend he chose to let go of the fight and reel in the nets and call it a season--after months of discomfort in his body, dramatic weight loss etc... No more trips to the doctor, no more fight, no more cancer meds, no more food, no more being a patient. Just decided it was time for a man to die a peaceful death at home with wife, mother, and a few other family members present. At about 11:30 last night,,a couple hours after his mother told his birth story, he shipped on out... And so this morning, his wife had the tragic role of telling their two sons, when they woke up, that their father is gone forever....AAAARRRRGGGHH!!! One quote of Christopher's that I always try to keep in my back pocket that I think many of you will appreciate is,,"When in doubt, Dance it out!!" Thanks so much for listening...this forum creates family. And, THANK YOU CHRISTOPHER!!!!
