hello again

Hi Tom.....glad 2 c u made it!!! Life is amazing, isn't it? I would give anything to be able to go to CA for new years, how about you guys??? One day at a time I guess. I am gonna try to start a new meeting in Bellville at a church called "All Souls" is a Unitarian Universalist church....have any of u guys heard of that? It suits me as a sober person and as a deadhead hippie sooooo well-their saying is "deeds not creeds" meaning that people of all religions go to share spirituality and faith with each other-it is all about how you treat people and what role you play as a member of the community....versus what religion you say you are....I love you guys so much....Have such a grateful much to be thankful for.....any of you ohioans venturing to columbus to see hookah on new years?? love n light-jodi

Glad you're here

Just celebrated another day sober- there are so many cool things out there I missed out on but I am learning more each day, because I want to.

I just released my debut novel, One Hour Martin-izing- the main character is a major deadhead and his best bud is a "Wharf Rat." If you like to read novels that make you laugh out loud and take you to places you have been and remember fondly and you like to root for the underdog who just happens to love the Dead and The NY Yankees, this plot driven thriller is for you.

You can get it at, and Check it out and share it with a kindred spirit- oh yeah , have you called your sponsor today!

Studio Bird Song

"Music question ! Was there ever a studio version of "Bird Song" recorded ?"

Yeah, on Jerry's first solo album. Don't know if that's the version you heard, though.

I have a sigfile! -->

Happy Thanksgiving

Went to a "gratitude meeting" last night. Never been to one before....heck, never heard of such a thing until a week ago. Everyone in the room got to get up and say what you're grateful for !! It was way cool to hear everybody share.
Music question ! Was there ever a studio version of "Bird Song" recorded ? I've tried to research this and get nowhere, but I swear I heard a very slow, quiet version on the GDC about a month ago. I sent them an e-mail, but no response. They're probably overwhelmed with e-mails. Maybe it was just Jerry ? Any help would be appreciated.
Haven't been to a show in a LONG time-probably Deer Creek Amphitheater, Indy, back around '89-'90. (or was the Louisville, KY show after that ?) I dunno !! How are Phil, Bob, Mickey, etc sounding these days ? Jeez, I see groups like Aerosmith and The Stones and Tom Petty performing at Superbowls, and I think "Jeez, hang it up ! You can't SING anymore !!!" So, I can't help wondering how the individual members of the Dead are sounding.
Alright then.....
Take care everyone !
