A Bicycle Built for Two

Dear Reader,

I found this song in a songbook from my aunt's house in Chico, CA where my mom grew up as well. My aunt is my mom's sister. They get along well, and my mom might actually be up in chico at my aunt's with my dad right now. My mom and dad were unrelated before marriage which means that my dad was also unrelated to my aunt before marriage. If my parents didn't have me, I wouldn't be related to my aunt.

I'm sure you can guess why I got so excited about this song written in 1892 by Henry Dacre. I've sung the"Daisy, Daisy" part before, not knowing the rest of the lyrics or song, and HAL has certainly had a huge impact on the way i see the world and people in it.

In other news, I got a new alternator installed in my car.

January is almost over, and it will never come back.

My friend, Pilar, told me about a person who made a film about a dog parade in Santa Barbara, CA and who needed music for it, the film. I sent her, the producer, links to my music, but she had already finished the film. I see this as a partial success because I wasn't rejected, only too late to be considered.

I haven't played out lately, but i will on february 23 in San Francisco, CA at the Magnet Men's center. I don't have my starting time yet.

I'm probably (95% sure) going to go to LA again to play at Wigout again Feb 16, 2008 10 p.m. at the Stone Bar in Los Angeles (the Angels).

I sold my Ovation Guitar, and so ends an era, an era when the world was round and people still believed in evolution, when you could still buy a cup of coffee for $2.00, napkins were free, and chocolate wasn't illegal.

I have an e-mail friend, Dan Glover, who is an amazing"classical" pianist. I took a lesson from him once. I met him when i was studying at SFSU and he was an accompanist there.

Love Always,
