Balm Outage

Due to a router failure at our hosting company, the balm went down for several hours today. Email did not get through.The directors of the firm hired to continue the hosting after the other people had been sacked, wish it to be known that they have just been sacked. The hosting has been completed in an entirely different style at great expense and at the last minute.

Domo Arigato Bonsai

Sunday afternoon, my restless roommates decided that they needed to go do something. We settled on the beach, and enjoyed the convertible on the way to Zuma beach. After tossing the frisbee around for a while, and enjoying running from the surf, we headed back, and on the way home, we stopped at a van with a bunch of Bansai trees on racks on the outer sides of it. So one of my roommates and I each bought a tree.

Saw Phil Keaggy last night. It was a stellar show. He played, and sang a duet or two with Larry Norman, who happened to be in the audience. They spontanoeusly combusted into "We are Siamese if you please." Amazing! Phil's pedal for his jamman double tapped once, and started a very short loop that was akin to a drum machine doing mach 5. He doubled forward, threw his arms forward and started furiously dancing around on his tippy toes as if it was German Techno or something. It was soooooo coool.
