I guess I might just be feeling a little sentimental this morning for some reason or another, but I wanted to thank you all (that includes you marye) for this vine section and the connection it provides to each other and to the music we love. You all have afforded me an opportunity to participate again, just like we used to i.e. taping and trading shows. I have received music that I previously only dreamed of and read about. And more importantly this has been a gift to be able to share some nuggets that resided in my library but were dead-ended (no pun intended) there.
I had shared them with friends and fellow deadheads some time ago, but now with this forum I am getting such a kick out of sharing them with you all over again. And the vine is even sending out to our brothers and sisters in other countries (and they are sending to us)!
Anyway from an old school guy, you all have recharged my batteries and provided me with great stuff to listen to and more importantly, what I could share you have received it with enthusiasm with the vine.
So now ‘the music never stops’ at my house and I truly get to 'pass it on'.
Take care and Vine On! Tim
Here is some Dead stuff I found on Ebay. Thought you might be interested.
Calico Kaliope come tell me the news!
The new album is out!!! Yeah!!! Checkitout........
Feel free to post about Dave there too. So sorry for your loss.
Marye or Izzy would probably respond to this in due time, as they are our awesome mods here, but just thought I'd lend a hand by directing you to the "Families" section, under which you will find, what I believe, is the correct venue for your post.
Sorry for your (and ours I trust) loss.
Welcome home, my friend.

I more or less lived like that. Harder to do these days. I once drove the South with fake plates (CT), a suspended liscence, no insurance and a bunch of warrants. The music was great.
I am in a position to leave this meaningless existence I have carved out for myself here in PA. and go on the road awhile, fallowing Rat Dog for awhile… Should I do it or stay home…? I am getting $350 a week from unemployment (good old unemployment…). So money shouldn’t be a problem. I just broke up with my Girlfriend and have no ties here except my Mom and Sister and her family, both live close to me now. On the other hand I lost my drivers license for ever and could go to jail if I’m caught driving in PA. I don’t know if it would be true in other states… I’m at a toss up… On one hand there’s seeing what lies over the next hill, Traveling around wondering why this band Rat Dog is fallowing me around, Or… Stay here and work as a contractor and collect… Go on a Mission one last time… ( and I’ve toured before, stopping oon that last tour of 95…) or stay my course as the responsible Adult.
Help me Decide.
