Kathy that is so sad

Golden Retrievers simply want to make us happy and will go to any lengths.
I used to have a golden, his name was Zoot (Allures- Zappa reference) and he had a brother Garth (Gimble- Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman reference). Those boys were always in competition for the petting and the attention, or to jump off the dock to catch the Frisbee or to chase down a ball.

It is so difficult when time to say goodbye to those friends. I am sorry for your loss. May Tate be retrieving that big Frisbee in the sky.

The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.

I am so sorry for your loss.

WRT the DP11 thread, though, it's right here: http://www.dead.net/store/daves-picks/daves-picks-volume-11-century-ii-convention-hall-wichita-ks-111772

To all my friends from the legendary "Eleven" thread...

This morning, at 0525 EST, I made the impossible decision to euthanize my best friend and golden retriever Tate. He was only 5 1/2 yrs. old, but he slept by my bed, ran with me, went on daily hikes, swam in deep water with me, accompanied me on all errands, was well known in town to neighbors and merchants, and slept at my feet in the office when I took him to work.

I note that our unprecedentedly successful thread on this forum in tribute to DaP11 has now been deleted, though I dearly wished to express my goodbyes to the "core" group of posters who made it thrive; you will not hear from me for some time as I recover from this incomprehensible loss. Thank you for your friendship. And please, say a prayer, send some good vibes, or just think of me and my lost Tate once in awhile. I will be back in due time./sincerely, kate

Over the last few years, the DiP series has been rereleased an issue or 2 at a time in reverse chronological order by Real Gone Music (with a single exception so far, being volume 10 and the legendary 12/29/77 show) and sold through a variety of online retailers...I think I've picked up 6 releases that I was missing in that time (most recently the bodacious '73 show(s) on vol.18).

Alternatively, all 36 installments are available for purchase in downloadable form on iTunes - so, knock yourself out! Incidentally, #15 (NEXT!) is the one I've been awaiting since this protracted rerelease process began...Englishtown...WOOT!!! (I like my physical media)/ good head's up post gd12 - no matter where it got hung!, kate

dicks picks 16 for pre order on fye web site

I haven't bought a cd from a mall in years it's either from this web site or amazon it seems. I happen to be on the fye web site and ducks picks 16 is available via pre order. With a release date of 9.2.14. Do you know if it will be a down load as well. I have it already but what a great show. I was hoping all the dicks pick series would make it to down load like road trips.if I posted in the wrong spot forgive me I am forum retarded.

Taper Section

Okay, folks....

We THINK that the long-missing pages of Tapers Section have been restored, notably many pages from 2008-2010. And from what we can tell, the links work, too.

However, heads up that in some cases the pages have different names than they used to, so older links and bookmarks may break.

If you encounter things not working on the TS pages, please send me the particulars. Thanks and happy listening to the restored tunes...

as a very wise person once said

Never put anything online that you wouldn't want to see on the front page of the New York Times.

That, of course, was before Facebook, which caused another wise person to remark that the only Facebook privacy policy you need to know is: If It's Private, Don't Put It On Facebook.

Facebook is omniverous, devouring your every word

I find it sad that people are so addicted to Facebook that they have to make it a destination from this website. Facebook is collecting and collating every single word and fact you spit out. "So what," you might say. "I'm not doing anything wrong or I'm ashamed of. I have no skeletons in the closet and am always pleasantly surprised when people find me.".

Did you ever think that Facebook, a publicly traded corporation, may be scooping data to sell to Lexus-Nexus, the premier sleuth out there. Perhaps you might have a few bucks and kids in school. Somebody does a search on you and Facebook info. collected with many other public records gives would-be kidnappers all the info. they need to snatch your kid for ransom.

Maybe you are well-loved in your community now but use to be a bully without eve being aware of the old meaning of the term and somebody had been nursing a grudge all these years and now uses Facebook to find you and get revenge for something hideously silly, liked you knocked the books out of her had in 5th grade.

There used to be a warning about how dead.net could track you. Laughable. No horror stories so far but I'm just waiting for the moron who bought his assault rifle in the parking lot of a gun show along with uranium depleted bullets after putting a GPS tracker on your car so they could take you out for not letting them dervish with you at the Frost in '83....

So have fun on Facebook kids, I'm sure I just paranoid!

for starters, in your case, I'd suggest the Deadheads of Canada, Eh thread.
