Just a bit of cream in the coffee would be fine.

Pete Seeger gets both praise and criticism around hereat the 'Cat, but I really have always been a real admirerof the man. He has lived with such a passion for what he does and has retained the "common" touch that in some ways he wasn't born with. I find it hard to believe that he wantonly took credit or money for something that wasn't his, although that's happened. But deliberately and wantonly?........Maybe I just see him through rose colored glasses.

I met him once after a concert with Arlo and he stood there talking as though we were all old friends and the passion in his whole demeanor was something like an "aura." I don't want to sound like a schoolkid, but people in ANY walk of life that exude that passion mixed with "commonality" have always just impressed the hell out of me. Had the same feeling talking with Bobby Unser, the racer. And it's funny too, although I only "know" him here in cyber Mudcat village, but I'm willing to bet Sandy Paton has those same qualities.

Karen just came in with parts for the pantry shelving...asks who I'm talking to...Says Hi, and she was looking forward to the DC trip......Well my day is planned now that she's back (I don't know what's wrong with the old shelving,but...). Thank Heather for the Scottish biscuits and coffee.
