Gregory Porter, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Corey Harris, Bonnie Raitt and I (among others) have a date. 2016 Jazz Fest tickets in hand. Wish I was in NOLA now.

And some vampires, too

"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." -- Abraham Lincoln. Plan for 2016 (so far) Grandma's Marathon in June, Carmel 8-hour Dream in July. I'm dreaming that I might get 36-40 miles in in eight hours, assuming the axe is sharp enough. Let's rock!
