Good to Be Here

Gr8fulBluz I am on the net, or Paul, born in NY, I left Long Island in 1985 for Florida and lived there until 1998. Now I live in Wash, DC.
My first show was Nassau in 1982 last in Tampa 1995. I dunno how many in between but all east coasters. I am a traveler for a living and play guitar for fun. I have been exploring Celtic rock lately but when I play guitar it is mostly G-Dead standards :-)
I cannot wait to see what this place turns into. I hope to contribute to the positive vibes.

Cheers to all

Yo! aud!


Good to see you here after all these years! Yeah, I've been around. Had to quit the Well in 1990, as I lost my job then, and need to rationalize my finances. :-(
It was so addictive that I was spending too much money on it. ;-) Today I'm semi-retired, and have enough disposable income to pay my ISP. (It's a cheap, monthly flat rate).

Since I have been blabbering so much

Despite knowing nobody, nor nobody knowing me, should perhaps tell a bit more than I have already. Am just really happy to have found this site, and have been on my own in enough adventures to have gotten over being TOO shy, so I just started talking. Have dropped some tips here and there already about me already, but...

Have 2 children, Callan Sean Darcy (11) and Imena Maureen Rhiannon (10). A photo of Imena is what I use in my profile, and which shows up on my posts-she is sooo lovely, with huge green eyes, and is my little fairy child. She is a rare and beautiful personality-a true-born free spirit.
I myself am female, in case that isn't obvious by my username choice :-). Am raising my children trilingual (English,German, French)of which I am really proud. Am working real hard on raising people who are open to the world and all that it offers. Was formerly American, but now live in Europe, and have no real "home" other than where my children, my cat China, and my crazy dog Samba are.

Oh, and I was almost born in a taxi in the middle of a tornado, in DeKalb Illinois, which I am convinced had a big influence on how my life has developed. Is chaotic and like a whirlwind, but I like it that way. I am adopted, and how I know the taxi in a tornado part is because my biological mother hired a detective, who found me here in Germany, right after my 30th birthday. Is also a significant life story in a nutshell version.

hey all

Hello from Newburgh, NY. mdmc here in the Hudson Valley checking in, I don't spend too much time on the internets but I am enjoying this site more and more everyday.

I've seen a couple shows in my day, and I've probably seen Dylan as much as if not more then the Dead,

I've been seeing Arlo Guthrie and his family recently.

Besides being a deadhead, I also enjoy comedy, politics, and religion. I ski, bike, and hike. I love living near the Hudson River and bring able to get down to NYC or up to the mountians easily.

peace and low stress

hi everyone

Saw my first show in 1979, living in tidewater area of VA, was able to see many east coast dead shows and JGB shows, will always be Jer's biggest fan, happily married, grown children (25,24, & 18) who also love the dead and live music, with no kids at home anymore we can go to lots of shows, seein a lot of Govt Mule and other Warren Haynes related music these days...

Hi! And a shout out to Marye!

Hi, I'm Ed Sieb, live in Ottawa, Canada. Been a deadhead for 40 years. Yup, you read that right. My first show was Aug. 6, 1967, at Place Ville Marie, in Montreal (my home town). Only got it a week later, though. I guess it had to percolate in my brain for a week!

A hi to Marye who used to know me as [baq] on the Well, way back from 1987 to 1990. Say hi to David Gans for me, wiil you?

I'm semi-retired from communications engineering, and divorced. Live with my two wuvly cats Indy and Merlin.

Read my profile for more info. More as I think of it!
