  1. I miss you too, Barb! Yes! I'm going to this show. If you come on up to the Bay Area, I'll give you a deal on that 5th row seat on Ron's side of the stage.
  2. For sale face value plus fees - $154 each - 2 tickets - San Jose 10/5 19th and 5th rows PM me if you're interested. Ames
  3. I love your quote Toni! That show was so fun! I went to a FM show last tour, and they were great! Are you thinking about going?
  4. I bought one a long time ago, and I wound a silver and ceramic bead necklace around it. It looks kinda nice.
  5. Sharon, it's my birthday weekend, too!! I'm going to try to make it. Marcia, are you going? We can finish seeing the Huntington.
  6. I visited my brother a few times over the last four years. I worked in a hospital about 8 years ago.
  7. Yeah. It's stupid. I think it's more about the writer's perception than the subject matter. She obviously doesn't know anything about song writing; ironic given that she is a writer. ......Whatevverrrr.
  8. "Jackhole" LOL Barb! Tell me it's not true. He was the one I liked best when I was a kid. Well, they were probably the most commercialized band at a time when people didn't like commercialism. I guess the Monkees have the problem that actors have when they are known only for one role. I don't think I'll check them out. I watched the Monkees reruns a million times decades ago. I love my memories of listening to their records on my turntable. I'll leave it at that.
  9. Ha..There's always a cloud of controversy over the Monkees playing live shows. (I think there was one back in the 60s too.) Davy's voice was such a big part of their songs. I wonder if they're going to get someone to replace him.
  10. I don't know if this was posted. But Mike Campbell is selling his journal from the last tour on EBay. It's a really rare piece of rock memorabilia. From what I've seen posted, it's a little glimpse into the life of a rock musician -- the life behind the music. http://www.ebay.com/sch/tazzyfund/m.html?_trksid=p4340.l2562
  11. I love this! The old steel one is interesting. it's so nice it's being played instead of sitting in a museum somewhere.
  12. You should have painted.. It's an interesting location and the light is different there. Yeah..We noticed that many knew English when we were in Europe. They liked to practice, so I could manage pretty well.
  13. What were you doing in Holland? Studying? Painting? Working? Sounds interesting. I went to Europe with my childhood friend in the 80s. It was great because she was fluent in several languages - French, Russian, Spanish, Greek... I guess American girls had a rep back then; men were always trying to talk to us; ironically, we were pretending we didn't know any languages...lol
  14. I had a little Spanish in grade school. I don't speak it but I can understand a little. I had French in college. It's a beautiful language. I don't remember much, and it's rare when i hear it spoken in California. I also learned a little Chinese which I'm relearning with my daughter. Half her family is Chinese.
  15. You traveled so far; I'm so glad your show was special. Of course Mike remembers the Knobettes! Sounds like you had an amazing night and a wonderful trip. We missed you, Beth.
  16. My dad had a blue 1959 Corvette - http://www.remarkablecars.com/main/chevrolet/chevrolet-00376.html That's my sentimental favorite. I always liked the Henry J Kaiser compact car of the 1950s. It was a car ahead of its time -- a small car in a big car world.
  17. Health issues can be so complicated. I know from my healthcare work that positioning the arm differently and using certain muscles (contacting muscles) can change the position of nerves and veins. I hope he's managing it OK.
  18. I'm in northern California. It was beautiful today, sunny and in the 70s.
  19. A loooong time ago I saw them play at a place called Toro canyon. It had an informal stage area on a beautiful Santa Barbara hillside overlooking the ocean. My second favorite were the shows at the old Sweetwater in Mill Valley. The Fox theater would be a cool place because of its trippy interior. It might be too big, though. The bay area has a lot of cool old clubs.
  20. I haven't been following her personal life; I'm stunned. This is so sad and tragic.
  21. The smokey girls bathroom...lol
  22. I guess there are good events and bad events.... I'm just happy everyone is healthy this year. No babies, no graduations, no marriages. A lot didn't happen this year...lol
  23. Mojo in Europe! They finally got their tour. Cool. I wish I could go too, Barb. We'll enjoy it vicariously through others.
  24. At work, doing what marion's doing.
