Wednesday: Wake Up!

Goodness! I about let the day take me off. It’s noon and I haven’t yet updated this front page. But if you’re reading this, you know I have updated it. Good on me!

Tonight we have our weekly Folk Jam in the pub with our boy Billy Watkins and a whole heap of friends. (Roadie, Chas, and many other ne’erdowells can often be found adding their guitars, voices and pints of Guinness.) It’s a spirited but laid back, foot tapping but unplugged gathering. Informal, free and fun.


We’ll have a special menu featuring Salmon Steak, Tiger Shrimp, Scallops, Veggie Focaccia, and more. And we’ll even take reservations that night, if you’d prefer to make them. You don’t have to, but if you want to be sure to have a table set aside, we’ll save it for you. Red roses will be on the tables. In the evening, around 9 pm, the Mosher/Ekstrand Experiment will provide romantic blues and there will most likely be some love songs before and after Mosher/Ekstrand’s set. Various other Valentines-style activities may emerge, such as poems.


Some days the patterns of madness are just more clear:

* A bra of pop star Shakira sold for $3,000.

* Swedish media report that a bathing suit worn by Nicole Kidman (though not at the time of auction) has sold for $2,500. The money will be used to by cows for the poor in rural India.

* And actress Salma Hayek recently outbid Anna Wintour (editor-in-chief of Vogue) for a one-hour private football (aka, soccer) lesson with David Beckham (whose notorious nickname I won’t print here). Hayek’s bid? $350,000!!!
