You find the darnest things by checking that On the Web link (on the top left, under Community). Seems to bring in whatever people are saying about the Dead online at the moment, which can be weird spam and can be pretty interesting.
Was reading a book yesterday called the Devils Teeth, by Susan Casey, about her time spent on the Farallon Islands, 30 miles west of San Francisco, with people reasearching the Great White sharks that congregate there every fall. One of them told her about the time that a big powerboat with Jerry's friends and relatives came out to the Farallones in big swells to spread Jerry's ashes. He had been told they were coming and him and another watched from the island as it happened. The next day the guy spotted a new Great White and they named it Jerry Garcia, but after a couple years it was eaten by Orcas. The story is on p.184. Ya learn something new every day!

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

Yes, I remember that windsurfing incident of which you speak, "badger" (if that's your real name). You escaped that day (Alex Allen), but wait until next time for which I have an even better idea. I'm going to place him in an easily escapable situation involving an overly elaborate and exotic death.
Oh and btw, do you still have Vanessa Kensington's number? I seem to have misplaced my little (evil) black book.
"I have but one request and that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads!"
In case you missed this from the DeadHeads in Europe forum, check this out! You'll be amazed!
If you want to check out the sail of the windsurfer in the picture you'll be even more amazed

While I was reading this article, I was listening to my newly acquired Phil & Friends, Atlanta 2006 concert. At the exact point of the article that quoted the lines from "Franklin's Tower", I listened to Phil & Friends play and sing those words. It was (to say the least) bone chilling. I had never heard that part of the concert and it was the very first time I played the CD for myself. Thanks again, everyone!
