To find out more about this crippling disease, got to As always, it’s good to be able to help in whatever small way.

Back to the hotel at 2300 and up at 0330 to head to the airport and thus onto Maui. Exhausted, but then there’s this…

Could be worse, right. Anyway, tomorrow we start with our class here in Lahaina. Fur Peace Ranch hits the road indeed. Well, for me it’s going to finally be a full night’s sleep.

    Everyone is still buzzing over our time together! You, Vanessa and Izze will forever be welcome members of our community. The quality and sentiment underlying your setlist was not lost on us. It was special…BTW sorry about that China Cat-Rider suggestion but at least it wasn’t “Blackbird”! Happy and safe travels. We look forward to meeting again.

    Sorry I didn’t know about this. Rita and I volunteered for many years at Scripps Memorial Hospital caring for a quadriplegic man who suffered from transverse myelitis. He died a few years ago, but not before I had set him up with a computer and a speech recognition engine that allowed him to write his autobiography and surf the net. This fundraiser would have been perfect for us, not only because of the transverse myelitis connection, but also because of the Jorma connection. If you don’t recognize my name, I am Josh’s brother and we have met many times backstage at your Hot Tuna shows. I live in La Jolla, so it would have been really nice to be able to see you locally at someone’s house. I guess it is my fault for not keeping up with your website.

    I guess I’ll just have to wait until March 8 at the Belly-Up.
