RIP the Pioneer Cabin Tree in Calaveras Big Trees State Park in California that died on Jan. 7th after a massive winter storm uprooted it. I actually drove  through it several times, once in a Lincoln Mark 6 a huge land yacht. It was an amazing tree and will be missed.
I can’t make it to town this Friday so I really would appreciate it if someone would record Jefferson Shuttlecraft  @ The Globe Fri 8:30 for me. John Miley has really put a lot of work into this tribute to Paul Kantner and I would love to hear it. A definite Don’t Miss. Also please record the Count Kellam shows. (Hint to Dan Nettles).
The Athens Human Rights Festival committee is meeting Thurs Nov 12th at 7 pm at Nuci’s Space and weekly after that until May. The last election proves we are all going to have to pull together to address these issues because our government certainly won’t. So please join us and make a difference. Your input is greatly appreciated. There are so many things that have to be done to put on the festival I’m sure we can find a job for you regardless of your skills. We also have our first fundraiser of the year. It is on Jan 28th @ 8:30 pm @ The Office Lounge with Rev. Tribble, More Popular than Klattu and Caroline Aiken’s Catch a C.A.B.Please come out and join us for a great evening of music and please donate to the cause.
