Les amis!!!

Hi Franklins

Glad Naam rang a bell. The Electric City Gdns serves fairly pricey but delish entrees - Toby was trained as a steak chef but he has branched way out - he made amazing special veggie dishes for us so it's not their regular fare, but the asparagus soup was divine =)

As for lack of BC heads, I think there's just very few of us here from Canada at all so we have this wide geographic spread - your arrival just extended it several hundred miles! We'll all keep working on recruiting as best we can...

I'm just so freaking excited that in 4 days... "SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!" to quote Alice Cooper. I'm going to kick it off with a reggae gig Thursday night at the Rivoli - Dub Trinity & the Idlers double bill - if you know anyone in the TO area, send'em down - we'll be looking for a hearty dancing crowd. Then Friday night at the good ol' Red Dog, Ptbo... Canada Day in Cavan, and then OFF TO ROTHBURY!!! Yeah, summer's starting right...

HAPPY SOLSTICE EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love, K

Hey Franklin's I just had

Hey Franklin's

I just had dinner at a place here in Peterborough I didn't know existed - Electric City Gardens - turns out the owner, Toby, used to also own the Naam in Kitsilano back in '74. Don't know if you've ever eaten there, but it's a pretty cool place with a longstanding good veggie vibe. Anyway, thinkin of ya!

The Dead Pod

Blown away by recent postings - Wow.
Free to I-pod owners. Just go on the Apple site. And search for the Dead Pod. It will be well worth your time. Hosted by a guy dubbed "The professor". It starts with a breif intro and then the music plays straight through with a small closing statement. Enjoy.

Peace,

Playin'

Thanksforsharing

Hey All: Well, Playing in the..thanks for sharing your Franklins story. Ya we all have some some song that just hits a certain chord and that is the one for me..love the lyrics and the help ..slip ...into.. My favorite to listen to was a show the Silver Bowl Las Vegas in 1993..i saw it live and it was the best Franklin's ever..light and dancing and magical..gives me shivers to think about it and the kindess of the strangers that were friends i hadn't met yet..great times.

Nice to hear someone elses experience. Wish i sawmore shows this time around find it a little hard here up North but there is such a great network of folks on the bus like yourself makes it easier to continue to "see the light once in a while if you look at it right" ..it's a state of mind..Nothing left to do but smile smile smile...
p.s still love to hear of any local events in Vancouver BC

cheers and blessings ..warms my heart and fills me with many grateful memories

Another beautiful Grateful Dead moment

Hi all,

Back at the family cottage this weekend. First trip this year. Needed something extra mellow during our tidy up (as per request from my lovely wife). Well I put on American beauty. It's been a while since it struck me so.....American Beauty at the cottage.....aaaahhhhh....so perfect...anyway.....

Peace,

Vancouverdeadheads?

Franlinsfantastic,

I do agree with your names proclamation....Franklin's Tower is fantastic!.....my earliest Frankin's memory (and strongest).....I can remember getting out of my tree at the cottage and being blown away by Franklin's Tower from Dead Set. I didn't know much about live dead performances at the time, nor did I know the song, it just got in under my skin and lifted me up higher and higher.....roll away the dew.....that makes me think of this year's Buffalo show.....the entire place lifted up into space at bunch of times......they are so good at that.....

Anyway, I guess I came here just to say hi....so, hi there...

Peace,

P.S. sorry can't help out with your Vancouver scene quest...good luck!
