Mr. Mike Randle popular ocassional bass player in the Michael Shelley band and member of Baby Lemonade, has released an excellent an album called "My Music Loves You (Even If I Don't)" on Eggbert Records. You'll want to buy yourself a copy or two, because when God made Mike, he broke the mold (or sold it on EBay).
Laura Cantrell (who sings on Michaels latest two albums) has two wonderful albums out in the U.S. on the Diesel Only label, and in the U.K. on SHOESHINE. Do yourself a favor and pick up these amazing recordings.

My ex-roommate, and old friend TORIN ALTER has just released a new album. We lived together in Hollywood for about a year in the late 1980's while he studied Philosophy and I waited tables at a Mexican restaurant. We were robbed (my guitar & bass - gone), I slept on the floor... but it was a fun year. Please check the album out.

I have a poison ivy rash on my arm. I was looking on the web for info & a cure and found THIS PAGE on which people have written some of their home remedies. Some of them are hysterical. I especially liked this one:
I don't recommend this to anyone at all, but what helps my poison
ivy is to take a rough washcloth, soak it in pure, 100% clorox bleach, and
proceed to rub it on the affected area(s) until it burns so bad that you
want to scream bloody murder. Initially, it makes you writhe in pain, but
later there's no itch, its dry within hours. This also works well for
ringworm. Once again, I don't advise anyone to do this, in fact, make sure
you don't. It will hurt like crazy and might have very bad effects on your
skin. byebye ivy, though.
JOHN MILLER has a new solo album out that is really excellent. We have been listening to it quite a lot at my house lately.
