Hi Everybody.

YeeeHaaaa! Election Day is right around the corner, and this
ridiculous campaign is almost over. I can't wait!  I'm so excited, I
hope I don't pull a hamstring dashing off to my polling place. Oh,
Boy! Another debate, tonight! I wonder if they'll stick to the same
inane, sandbox tactics, or move to something that  requires a little
more maturity, a little more strategy...... like the King of the
Mound. Maybe the gloves will really come off tonight, and they'll
argue about whose dad has the bigger.....yard. Maybe one of them, the
one with the IQ of a slow chimp, will totally lose his cool, and
scream POOPIE DUMMY! .... while stomping on his opponent's sand
castle. Where's Ross Perot when you need him?

Now for the important stuff....I'll make it quick:

EG Kight was at Biscuits and Blues, SF last week. However, due to
circumstances beyond my control, and with much regret, I was unable
to attend her show. But I was supposed to hear her.....on Sat, I was
surfin' the radio and heard this fabulous woman singer, and she was
singing the blues...she was so good, I had to stay tuned to find out
the name of the singer, and what program it was that I was listening
to.......It was EG, and she was performing on SF based NPR program,
West Coast Live! She's great!
Preacher Boy has been on the road promoting his CD Demanding To Be
