    Arise Sir Alex
    Congratulations to Alex Allan on his knighthood. Officially it is for his public service including as the UK Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee. But we know it is for his services as a Deadhead, prioprietor of the Grateful Dead Lyric And Song Finder (www.whitegum.com) and author of sleeve notes for the Europe 72 Set.

    definitely!
    one suspects this was not on his mind back in the day. Or any other time either. But it's well deserved and it's a treat to see. (And folks, if RT comes to your town and you have not seen him, check him out, and not just because the Queen likes him now!)

    Gratefaldean - in my experience of sending vines, shipping to the US normally takes 10 -14 days so you should get it soon.....hope you do anyway. I have not ordered 'Live at the BBC' yet, but I should do.. Does Thompson live in California now? I had no idea. Anyway he does indeed looks pleased to get some recognition from his home country. Good for him; he is right up there with the best of them..

    Is that a nuclear war, and a coronation of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ?An outstanding halo will prove it to all.

    I thought he looked pretty pleased about the whole affair. Good for him, not bad for a California dude, by way of London, England. So...I ordered his new Live at BBC box from Universal in the UK. Received a shipping notification on 6/14, hasn't arrived yet. CB, how long should I wait before I start getting nervous? No idea what a typical overseas delivery would be, and no tracking info either...

    A serious award for Richard Thompson
    http://www.richardthompson-music.com/catch_of_the_day.asp?id=1350 And I was listening to 'Pour Down Like SIlver' when I saw this on Eurotraders. So what's it like to become part of the establishment RT? Did you tell the Queen you would meet her on the ledge?

*giggle**blush more* Good vibes is not something I've ever been accused of; TigerLily is easily amused, therefore I'm movin' to France. Thanks doll. I'm voting with Hal on PK too, PK is almost too nice to be a human. Nice potter, as well - they're more sculpture than pottery.

Down there in that nice warm sewer there's an alligator getting ready to pounce on a juicy rat, when suddenly: a cell phone rings! Hahahahha! Wonder what her ring tone is? Suddenly: a cell phone rings "Friend of the Devil"! hahahahahahaha! Ah, sewers.

But those vibes are a reflection of the magnificent spirit of love and family this little magical band from San Francisco has planted on this big blue marble. That spirit shines through the folks here like the golden rays of the sun on a beautiful day at a grateful dead concert in the park.I think the The Golden Spirit Award goes to the many here that make this place a home. In no particular order, Hal, for his wise words, Oroboros, for his teachings and stories, Markinthedark for his sense of humour and his kind investigative work, TigerLily for her beautiful spirit shinging across the grate pond, Gigi, for her the happiness and love she showers over us all, grdaed73 for the life of the party atmosphere he shares here, nobody loves a party, iknowyourider, for the color she brings to the world through her words, Marshun, for the sunflowers, Freeidea, for his beautiful poems, Trevor, for his nice hippy ways, Mr pid for his intellectual spirit, Techgirl for her virtual smile and erickat, Lopezz, sunshinedaydream, ltapilot, birdsong, Tommo, and the many viners for the wonderful seeds they have planted in the garden here at deadnet, and many more. And Marye, for pulling it all together, with a smile, and a little help from jonathon. Thanks for making this world a better place. An honor to share it with you. peace, hope, and dreams, pk

I'd like to give the Bareback Award to Southern Tam for her "unbridled" enthusiasm for the upcoming tour. If you don't know what I am talking about, check out the Dead To Tour topic. She almost singlehandedly negated all of the negative vibes. "Let there be songs to fill the air."

As the singular Oroboros, I hereby recognize Hal (super & regular alike) as our 'Keeper of the Vibe'. All in his presence have noticed his glow and feel this vibe passed on to us all. Hal enriches our tribe with his wise words, kind advice, and gentle wit. Hail, hail, and cheers to Hal and us all, as we raise our pints to one who adds so much to our dance, warms our hearts, and encourages each on the path. "Believe it if you need it, if you don't, just pass it on...." The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.

After nearly two years of regularly giving them a hard time I think its about time I nominated the mysterious 'powers that be' for an award. The long promised 'tidal wave' of releases has now really arrived (entire '77 and '68 shows in the last month!), the adoption of the Pure Jerry catalogue is a stroke of genius, the addition of the new search and filter tools on the site is a great improvement, the continued tolerance of the vineyard is most welcome and the advance coverage of the Dead tour has been very imaginative. The only flies in the ointment are the bizarre postage charges for store orders outside the US, but I hope that this award will encourage them to sort that one once and for all. So step up 'Powers That Be' to receive your deserved award (you can wear disguises if you want to continue to be mysterious)
