Friendship is a big part of our lives, I wanted to mention a few friends…
My dear friend and partner in synchs at natural energy lab has left, we all wish her the best – times a million, we will miss her bigtime!
Having known Kevin for many years and just recently put back in touch with him when Lark Williams contacted me, we just started talking again, having been very good friends, sharing rehearsal rooms, car accidents, crazy parties and geeky love for The Small Faces. He had left me a voicemail, as he was going to make me a copy of a super 8 film with me and Kevin and Stan and Billy of The Dickies playing Moonage Daydream, I had the message meaning to pester him for a copy that we talked about. I am so sad to hear that he passed away. I hope his family and close friends are doing OK. Sorry we could not have met up again, other then the few phone calls we had in recent months.

Stand Back Buenos Aires!
The wife and I got brave and hopped on a airplane and flew to Buenos Aires. Ah yes nothing like a 15 hour flight to make you feel just right. We stayed at a boutique hotel called Home Buenos Aires and happened to get the best room their garden room,which had a upstairs patio.
Food, yes it may be the beef capitol of the world, but we do not eat meat and did not have a bad meal, plenty of good food!On one of our excursions around town, we came upon this gentleman who plans on walking from Buenos Aires to NYC…yeah right, great image! I think he is making the plans! History in the making!
Pollo, a game for the rich or so it seems, held in private country clubs,100 or so people show up to watch from the side lines to watch a very exciting match between Argentina and Brazil. Brazil wins! Really fun, maybe not for Argentina…
La Recoleta Cemetery is a famous cemetery located in the exclusive Recoleta neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Eva Peron is among the many who are buried there. Every family who is buried there, has there own mausoleum, and they all tried to out do each other with their own style.
The girl above who is said to be the mascot of the cemetery. It is said she died at 19 of a brain aneurysm at the opera in the 1800’s only to wake in the morgue and die again! Legend has it there are scratches inside her coffin…
The trip was too short and I only find out about good used record locations the night before we left from the owner of the hotel. The records I saw had cool covers, but you could never play them. All in all it was well worth it, and the dollar is 3 to 1.
