Web Poles, Gardening and Rock and Roll

Just a reminder, we have a new question on Grade Ma State House.

Should the legislators take a cut in salary? if so, how much?

If any of our readers who are unemployed, veterans or seniors citizens who have a patch of land they want tilled up for a garden, I will do that for free. Just e mail me at and we will make arrangements. For a small amount of money invested in seeds and plants you can get a great return on your investment, save a few bucks and eat vegetables out of your garden which are healthier than most stuff you get from the grocers. A very good activity for the kids in the house also.

This Saturday (May 9TH) my neighbors are doing a rummage sale to benefit "The Relay for Life Team", a group that helps cancer survivors. The Victory Band will be dusted off and be playing around 1PM, two sets of old rock&roll music. Donations to the rummage sale can be dropped off at 12 Yorks Road, Jim and Amy Swallow. This will be weather permitting.

Nice offer Jim about the garden tilling. Just remember, many can still afford to pay and there is no reason for you to do this for free if they can pay for it. Don’t get taken advantage of! But for those who do deserve it, great idea. I would take you up on that myself but I am in Senior Citizen housing with no ground to plant in. Ever think of contacting the Sr Houseing centers in the area and make the offer to till some ground on their property and let the seniors plan if they want? I think that may work out better, as many of us old guys now live in these assisted living or retirement homes with no yards because we did not want to worry about the upkeep.

Victory Band. Did not know you still existed, have not heard you guys since the TV show. Always enjoyed listening to your music. May stop by to hear you again. All the same players?

Not sure how to tell you this Jim, but a lot of us coming here are a bit old for the Rock and Roll stuff, but good luck to you. Good cause I guess, so maybe the turnout will be decent if the weather is good. In any case, hope it goes well.

Good points... Soldier. Gardening for our seniors at places that have the space could be a healthy activity. best friend and singer song writer Grave Easton passed away two years ago after the show stopped. I needed to take a step back and stop playing for a year. He was a great loss in so many ways.

We have some new players, including my fiancee. Frank, God Bless him, is still with us. We've practiced maybe 10 hours in the past few months and get better every time we play. No record deals, or playing the Paradise, but we just love to play even at our ages.

We are never to old for Rock&Roll Linda George.... after all Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Willy Nelson, Eric Clapton and all the rest are almost 70. There's hope for me yet.
