    Good Vibes for Phil

    My brother Phil is a deadhead from way back -- made it to 95% of all dead shows from '87 to '90 and most of the west coast shows until Jerry passed in '95 (over 200 shows). Some of you might even know him. He's currently fighting for his life with stage 4 cancer and he could use your good vibes.

    For more information, search for Phil Burkett on the gofundme site, and thank you.

    That spammers

    That spammers will even post in a thread where we're vilifying them. I think that this one is especially egregious, given the theme of the thread and the spammer's solicitation for our prayers! That is just about as low as you can get. Isn't it? Time for Marye to break out the flamethrower, once again...

Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul.Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon. Politicians say more taxes will solve everything. Eve of destruction, tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors, Mod clothes in demand, population out of hand, suicide, too many bills, Hippies moving to the hills. People all over the world are shouting, 'End the war.' And the band played on. Great googalooga, can't you hear me talking to you. Sayin'... ball of confusion. That's what the world is today, hey, hey. Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya. Sayin'... ball of confusion. That's what the world is today, hey, hey. Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya. Sayin'... ball of confusion. peace!

peace through musicHey Now , been out of touch for a while so here's an update.....Norman is still in intensive care, but is being weaned off the ventilator. Breathing on his own for 8 hours a day. It has been 4 weeks today, since he went in to the hospital. They deprived him of oxygen and or blood pressure for four to five minutes and he had a bilateral stroke. He wakes up and watches tv with us and can move all his limbs although not on command. Our hope is that he will go to a rehab center soon, but there are some doom and gloom professionals at the hospital that would like us to make other decisions such as ending his life. Thank you for all your positive vibes and the Love that you've sent him. The legal matter has been put off until after the new year. Wishing Peace and Love and Happiness to all.

peace through music Just wanted to jot a quick note on my way out the door to the hospital to see Norm. When your sinking in the mire of doubt and or depression just knowing that there are souls out there who take the time to care and write a few words of encouragement can be inspiring. It gives you the strength to carry on. Thank you all for this unconditional Love. And thank the stars for Marye and all the work you do connecting us all. Holiday blessings to all. To Sunshine Daydream Bob; Not sure what's wrong but sending Good Love vibes to you!

when yer so down that ya can't talk to other people for fear you'll bum them out but ya need ta talk to someone so bad it makes yer chest hurt? when ya don't wanna eat, smoke, drink, sleep, stay awake, sit, stand, lie down but yer hungry thirsty tired and alone.........music doesn't help, nor does quiet, so scared ya wanna puke and can't. suicide is too much work and leaves a mess for someone else to clean up and bums THEM out, and ya know THAT ain't right, and ya know it's just selfish to think about yerself but ya know nobody else will.........and even if they do there's nothing they can do for you.................

Do what you are doing, my friend. Talk when you can, it can help to endure the pain. That pain is the unwelcome balance the joy that we are blessed to experience. Recognize the great gift of your skeptical humor and wit that you share regularly with us. And know that there are times that your contribution offers us all here a 'cookie' that is a unique 'johnmanism'. I can hear the angst in your post but note the warm empathy for others as well. Again that contrast is striking. And welcome. Move on as you can, brother, and stop and rest when needed. Depression often takes herculean efforts to endure. It is exhasting. Honor your feelings, but care to not linger on those thoughts that are destructive to you and tax your sense of yourself. Persevere and remind yourself of your path and how far you have come. Be gentle with yourself. "Shall we go?...you and I, while we can?" Take care, Tim The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.

...iknowurider has a way with words, also ;^). Hope the new morning of a new year finds you in a better place johnman, or at least in a better position to deal with things. My Latin-speaking dog suggests "Illegitimum non carborundum" (a Latin professor would prefer "Noli sinere te ab improbis opprimi") but whichever fits best: Don't let the bastards wear you down, whoever/whatever the bastards may be.

Sending some peace into your thoughts to go along with the out pouring of love from some of the best people around. This will be a better year, the start of a new era, where hope overcomes despair, and love overcomes hate. The spirit and love you have put forth in these pages has overcome much despair and brightened many hearts. Now pull some of that love deep within you and shine it on yourself johnman, feel your love for yourself, we all feel it for you. Oh, and do what iknowyourider, the princess of technicolor posts, said - enjoy that cookie,I think we all enjoy them a little more thinking of you. peace and hope brother,pk

is having quadruple bypass surgery today, just found out, he had a heart cath this am and they are going in right away My mom is with him and no relative near (they do have some close friends with them). They are half the country away from me right now in Texas where they go for the winter. One of my brothers is flying in tonight to be with them. I will be heading down in the next couple of weeks to help with the recovery and healing but it is very hard to be so far away right now.
