General Guinness! He's good as irish Stew.

the playing is not that stellar here, this is just a first attempt. I'm getting back the ambidexterity thing, but this particular harmonica line is a little tough for me still, even though the chords are dirt simple.

Our little kitty apears to have left us a baby snake carcass on the back porch as a trophy. (Jackie only leaves them on the front porch.) If shes trying to earn my respect, she's getting it. This is at least the second snake she's caught, the other one I was able to rescue before she tore it apart.

Went to THE VINTAGE (www.thevintageugene.com) with Miss Nuxie last night. had some SUPER bleu cheese fondue and drinks and dinner.

then, the Soothesayers played a short set at Tim's (second) birthday partay last night... our keyboard player, Jenn didn't make it in time for our set, as she was holding court at the roller derby afterbout party.

I need t'go back t'bed, folks...

"A moment I've been dreading. George (Herbert Walker Bush) brought his n'er-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida; the one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."

celtic reggae, Gaelic Roots Rock, and death folk. not trying to be everything to everybody, I just have A.D.D. and switch from banjo to harmonica to steel guitar to concertina.

yes, I have a squeezebox. the newest in my ever expanding arsenal of annoying instruments.

Slainte!

Happy 2007: the year of DOING STUFF, not GETTING STUFF. and it will be topped off with Xmas 07, the BUY NOTHING XMAS!

(Nuxie gasps in horror!)

the 07 Tournament of Roses Parade was STORMED by troopers of all nations, as the grand marshall was George Lucas.

Mertz might be playing tin whistle, banjo, and harmonica in a pirate music group here in Eugene. The unfortunate name of the group has nothing whatever to do with pirates , tho... 'AUDIO ACOUSTICA'. I will be doing a CD of the 'Puddletown Pattys' but there will be some lineup changes.

I turn 37 on 1/9/07. the Tom Waits tribute show is at Sam Bond's on 1/13/07 & I'm hoping to get 'Audio Acoustica' to do a number or 2. HAPPY BASTARDS are playing Friday 1/5/07 @ Le Sous Sol and 1/7/07 at Tiny Tavern.

I plan on paying much closer attention to MERTX Jr's academic life, due to his poor grades at 1st term. His advisor has not repllied to either of the 2 emails I've sent, but I've had some contact with the Vice Principal and a Counselor - we've got a meeting set for Friday and my son will be tested for A.D.D. on thursday...

hope everyone had great holidays, much love and respect,

XOX
