NEW FRIENDS, GREAT FOOD, AND THE BEST BLUEGRASS THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN...

O.K. HERE IS WHAT ANYONE ON THE WWW CAN SEE ON BLOGIT

The rituals of Death can be very strange ...weird, even. TAPS' post

"Maracan Farewell" is a must read, I think. As Evel Kneivel was often heard to say: "Ain't none of us gettin out of here alive!"
