i'm new to the new deadner, but not to the dead. over 300 shows, a year on the road 979-80) over 200 cd's, both my children were born to the dead, my oldest attended 6 shows in utero, and started going with me since the age of 2, she's now 22. i'm a history teacher and researcher, and have a wife and 2 daughters. i'd love to get active on the net, i'v got plenty of stories from the old days, and some from the new. if anybody would like to tell me what the highlites of the net are, i would appreciate it. or e-mail me for no reason. i'm off for the summer except a part time job with the camden river sharks, only because i also love baseball and always wanted to be a part of a stadium. i love to talk and am easy to get along with, as you can tell fron my long introduction. looking forward to hearing from others deeplyt into the dead. thier music has pulled me through some good times and bad, but there's nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile. will the dead tour again. peace, "the wizard"
