    Certainly does sound intriguing...just a bit too pricey for me. Thanks, Marye, for the admin cleanup!

    What's in a name, Marye?
    A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Please name the new thread, "Sunshine Daydreamers Keep on Truckin'" If you can include the last 3999 posts, that'd be swellll...just kidding, of course. But if you could include the last 17 (make that 20, see the above 3 hangers-on and ne'er do-wells) or so of the posts from #1, first above written going back to and including July 4th the Happy Anniversary one, that should give one and all some context, as that was the day 2 years ago, when we first met each other for real, where we broke bread and watermelons at the finest pizza pic-a-nic this side of the Rockies, and whence we collectively enjoyed a grand and magnificent band celebrating all good things. Thank Yew veddy much, Oh Kind One.

    @Got Sand
    We're very intrigued by the Playing in the Sand gig come February and will most likely pony-up. Spoke to a dude at CID today in Philly who's been at all the gigs there (D&C, DMB, etc...) and he said is simply knockout gorgeous and as intimate a live beach concert setting as you can imagine. Multiply that by three shows and "all-inclusive" amenities and the the money grab rolls-on... Anyone else contemplating?

    I don't want to cause this thread to lose momentum, but it is now over 4K posts long, which is a bit unwieldy. I can start a new one, just give me a name for it... Thanks!

Top of the afternoon peeps (literally). Nothin' like some in-air GoGo wifi.....(no, rrrrrgrrrrr, not that kind of Go Go....). Okay..... so no one laugh, but I just saw this Hall and Oates concert from Dublin from last summer here on the flight. Holy shit - frickin' amazing and brought back great, great memories of their catalog of hits. Highly recommend it. Could never figure out how they were friends of the Dead but I do remember them opening up for them on the 9th of 9 straight nights at MSG in when was that?? '89? '91? Anyways, here's to hoping all the beautiful Sunshine Daydreamer's had a wonderful start to the week. Cheers !!

I had one of of those moments too. I never paid much attention to Hall & Oates other then when they were on the radio where ever I happened to be. Then I stumbled upon a show called "Live From Daryl's House" with guest Joe Walsh. Wow!!! Joe Walsh is always great, but I saw a side to Daryl Hall I never new existed. He was amazing. Same thing when he had Billy Gibbons and Todd Rungren as guests. This is a series he has been doing for seven years or so. They take place in a private studio he has put together. Best place to begin looking into this is Wikipedia.

There's plenty of T's around. I don't mind my musical commentary being mocked cause I got big big trouble on the way. The mayor will be getting home from work soon and he's gonna find out I ratted him out on his tickets. I should have thought that one through. Nowhere to run nowhere to hide. What's for dinner?

We don't need no stinking badgers.... Brah... It's all good, I'm rooting for Duke, because for all crazy ass reasons....when my daughter was accepted there 7 years ago, I refused for her to attend, cuz to me $60,000+/ year x 4 years was too much for me to handle and I didn't want her to be in that much debt....for undergrad.... Looking back it was the right choice....for us....at least.... She forgave me and we are gonna watch together, she's in town for Easter week.... Godspeed to Wisconsin...beating Caliperi was sweet.... Enjoy my friend...bet you $20.... Nah....on second thought.... I wonder who the Mayor is rooting for?

Missed dinner last night. Mayor Klanks got home early. Had to flee. I was sure I had a date with the hangman. But our most benevolent mayor saw fit to spare me. The snitch is alive for another day.

All 3-day passes are half price (half of face value). But due to the recently increased taxes and SD forum maintenance fees the sales tax for each day's ticket will be 1000%. $300 3-day pass goes for $150 plus $1050 in taxes. 1 day only you can have nose bleed no view tickets for all 3 days at only 1200 per day! Today only...

Glad to see my Blue Devil's won last night. Graduated in 83 and was there when they hired Coack K. We were not very good back then for a couple of years. Got to see Michael Jordan play in college. 3rd Dead Concert was 4/2/82 at Cameron Indoor. Volunteered to be an usher so got to see the show for free. After the first set was able to go down front and be done working. Still have my t-shirt I got that night. I believe that was the show that Jerry and Bob switched sides? Steve

Makes me wanna sing Crosby/Nash's Cathedral....friggin awesome campus... Have a cup of joe, sit by the fire....want some combos? It's all we got left since the Mayor squeezed us for all we are worth....

Hard fought victory. Great game. I've always been a fan of Coach K. Like I said about the Badger last night; it don't look like me. Not mine. But I did enjoy riding with him this season. Alas...the $20...it's been in the cave so damn long it's deflated. Doesn't buy what it used to.

I followed up on that 'Suites at Soldier Field' post. The reply is not for the faint of heart. Hey George, Thanks for providing your name and email. The suite comes with 20 tickets and 3 parking passes for every show. The pricing is as follows: -7/3 = $38,675 -7/4 = $28,625 -7/5 = $43,125 -Garrett Garrett Navarette Partner Relationship Manager Sports Shares & SuiteHop 1553 Platte St., Suite 205, Denver, CO 80202 Email: gnavarette@suitehop.com Office: (303) 457-5750 Cell: (303) 842-9230 Any body have an extra 100k lying around?
