No, ladies and gentlemen - I have not been hired to be a motivational

speaker for the Lockheed

Martin Company - opening for the Charlie Daniels Band (at the Paul

Wolfowitz Theatre)  Maybe opening

for Ted Nugent would have been more obvious.

I have to admit I did have a little fun with it - but had no idea I

would get bombarded with

replies!  I had over a hundred in the first 15 minutes!  In 24 hours

it has been thousands!  Jeeze,

maybe I should consider a career  as a con artist.

In any event,  I felt  a second E-Mail is in order.  Feel free to


OK OK - I promise not to bug you guys with two E-Mails in a row like

this again.  I really try to

make this strictly a once a month thing.  I really do appreciate your

kind words and thoughts.

I got lots of congratulations, a few lectures on how I have slipped

SITE:  A way you could donate


I am hoping that it will be A DVD!  I've written a few scripts and

started shooting the first one

with a borrowed camera.  I want to thank all of you who have chimed in

with advice on this!  I am

still wanting to buy a computer so that I can edit this thing myself.

Till then if any of  you

want to get involved in any way - zap me back.


I am looking forward to a handful of dates in The NY area with D.R.

this month.  Look for lots of

new material!


I am booking a west coast tour in late June/Early July to include The

Oregon Country Fair See

below for details and if ya have any ideas or offers on a place to

play - zap me back


Finally, I have been booked at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival doing

spoken word on the main stage.

This will be linked with a few shows in the NE including a festival in
