MMMMMM blueberry pies! As for me, I suspect I'll be making the first in a long series of peach cobblers and peach muffins. :lol:

You have blueberries in January? The plants need a cold spell to open their buds and that happens now, in winter, while they're dormant.

I see that FBB made the cut. I've been on a Poco binge for the last week. Did you know any of those boys?

yeah, i knew most of those guys. during the "country rock" era i was under contract to warner's and under the old studio system i played for anybody they told me to play for. that was the rules. my own band was kept about six months behind the curve of what was hot. if there was a genre or a style that was really popular my band would, about six months after the peak, record an album which would then go straight to the bargain bin at K-Mart. we never got much airplay either. i think, in the grand scheme of things, warner's lost money on us, but what the hell, it was their money.

Grandma couldn't keep me out of the blueberry patch when I was little, and I'm not a good baker, but that pie sounds awesome.

Yeah, keep me out of yer blueberry patch, I tend to gain weight there.

Just heard an old Yes cut, forgot just how much I liked those guys.

One of the best concerts I ever had seen in central Arkieville, back in the early 70's.

Before disposable lighters, everyone still knew how to use matches.

Anyway, I thought I'd add one to your list, even if it is Sunday.

Regards, Minstrel.

hell, i'm old enough that i remember when the beatniks wouldn't be caught dead doing something as uncool as clapping so they would snap their tragically hip fingers. they were so pretencious it was laughable. they were all about i'm going to express my rebelling against society and individuality by dressing in my beatnik you knee form and looking like every other dissaffected young man. they also had the nerve to pretend like they understood charlie parker and coltrane. fools, the lot of 'em.

I've always found it surpassingly ironic that each generation of (American, anyway) adolescents is full of individuals each convinced they are expressing their individuality as they each don the garb of most of their peers while mocking the few who don't............
