    Is “Papa Was A Rolling Stone” available or posted anywhere? I would really like to hear that.. Somewhere deep in my possibly faulty memory is you playing an incredible version of “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” sometime @ 1986. Who doesn’t love Motown?

    Yup. 2/21/1986 at the Beacon. My wife was 8+ months pregnant, and I got her to climb the steps to the balcony…..

    Going fishing in the Pepacton resevoir tomorrow. It’s a huge man-made 30 mile long lake that’s part of the NYC water agency. It’s known for its fishing. 5-10 lb rainbow trout as well as its 20 lb lake trout are common. It’s about 10 miles west of Big Indian/Woodstock area. Upstate New York is so nice.
    Just got back from the Finger Lakes region. We saw Taughannock Falls in Ithaca. The highest falls in the East. Then off to the Seneca wine trail. I recommend the Glenora Inn in Dundee, just north of Watkins Glen. It’s nestled in the vineyards overlooking Seneca Lake. The food and wine in this region is spectacular.
