    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.

    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?

Hi campers and camperettes- I've had three different kind folks bring up the fact that the Sunshine Daydream thread seems to be written in code, or that they can't quite get a handle on the issues being discussed. Please keep in mind that our Bus driver and resident wit is channeling the not only the spirit of the GD in their space-jams, but also the personalities of Jack Kerouac, Hunter Thompson, Neal Cassady and the allegorical spaciness inherent in those many years of special Kool-aid tests that Tom Wolfe wrote about so eloquently back in'68. The idea is for all of us to think "out-of-the-box" as we prepare for this grand reunion, or as some might say, just get out-there with it all (in a friendly way). Also, the Merry Pranksters took a bit of a bus ride back in '64, and the spirit of those sketchy fragmented experiences and stories, birthed during that journey, are also prevalent in the various comments we are all reading. As we get closer to our destination, please know that there may be a gradual increase in the number of posts that actually make sense, and will help to guide us to a safe landing. Until then, keep your tin-foil hats on with antennas pointed in the proper direction, tighten those seat-belts and enjoy the ride. For we are not just the best at what we do, we are the only ones that do what we do. cheers- Geo-the-voice-of-reason-meister

The lack of a Santa Clara announcement, communication or even an acknowledgement of the possibility has driven me to depression. The lack of a response from the organization and its company/administration I consider seriously insulting. I'm taking a break from the day-to-day postings. Will check PMs and e-mails. Love you all, take care of each other...

Horse has prohibited any future avatar changes. He has his CID package and he will be in Chicago. He will be at the front of the Pit, for his tickets are superior to mine. He is in absolute control of things on this end. It's all one long song.

Horse is his official stage name, verifiable on his website. But he's cool with "T" as a nickname. He's excited about the bling, but refuses to get a Mohawk. He just completed performing a masterful rendition of Bob Dylan's 115Th Dream with sunglasses on.

rrrrgrrrr always keeps this bus right on time and yet he manages to keep the destination a mystery. Or is it, we know where we're going but we don't know where we've been? Either way we are best off leaving the driving to him. He is the walrus!!!!

Not withstanding my earlier characterizations, and continuing the discussion, there are many ways one can view the thoughts and the happenstance responses that find their ways onto our fine Sunshine Daydream Home Thread. For instance, within the rambling stories that weave their collective ways through these fine forum threads, there is also a discussion, a sermon, a pleading, a dream, a dance, a song or three, and a reaching out. Whether it is from a Brother or a Sister or a Father or a Mother or a Daughter or a Son, it is real...or maybe not. But guaranteed, Somebody cares about Something, be it Real or Imagined, and they are letting all of us know. Turn up the Bass, Tune the Banjo, shut up during Space, I need a ticket, Who's on first, it's important, whatever it is. So we reads, and we posts, and we explore. We share. We anticipate, we plan, we rejoice and we get saddened....hopefully, the saddened moments are brief and fleeting, and if they are not, they are somewhat lessened by the comfort our family can give. We are fed, and we feed others. We are family. Sunshine DayDream: At Once a Thread, a Home, A Couch, A Bus, A Book, a Church, a Soapbox and Thank you very much rgrgrrgr, a dining room. A Pic-i-Nic? Certainly. over there, at the SE corner of the Buckingham Fountain, in that little grove of trees. Meet-ups start as soon as you can get there, and end after the last people say adios. Bring your own everything, and a bit more for your neighbor. A Mayor? We have several, they meet here. Not unlike the park bench over at the town square in Maintown, USA, populated with those Who Make The Important Decisions, they have this place. No one is in charge, each gets to be a blowhard as the baton is passed, and all issues are carefully pondered on before a proposal is offered or a decision is made. Each is a Mayor in His/Her own right. All of us get to drive, to give advice, to give directions or ask questions or provide answers or extend a helping hand or share an encouraging word. A Horse? Now that's another issue altogether. Hey you over there with your hand up...tell us about this horse deal. Film at Eleven...thanks for staying to the end....or is it.... PS I Miss Jerry too! geopondermeister
