Comment of the Day!


I love what things you turn us onto GLOB Master!. I listened to your Greg Brown link and thought I might like him. I went a little further, and I found this YouTube video -- CANNED GOODS -- . It is simply, beautifully, magically transporting. I have sent it as my Thanksgiving Holiday love wishes to my favorite friends.

If you have not heard him and this lovely tune, give yourself a few minutes treat. And Happy Thanksgiving.
