You might not have agreed with all of Pres. Bush's policies, but there is no doubt of his dedication to the country in may respects.

Amazing how the current WH resident can make even a deeply flawed ex-president look absolutely statesman-like.

Agree 100%.

So now we are politicizing Happy Birthday thread?  Go to Say Something Random and Highly Political if you want to make political commentary.

Hey!  It's haggis' thread, so he gets a little leeway.  I'll ride his coattails.  

Everything is politics...

Love you guys!  Point taken, thislintom.  And support much appreciated, PH! 

So, how about happy 77th to Marv Albert?!   That's how old the man is, but not sure about his hairpiece.

Thanks, just get tired of all the political stuff all of the time.  There is a time and place for politics, but I don't think it is here.

Yes he is a Baltimore guy PH. I used to love seeing him and his band play the club scene in Philly/NJ/NYC in the late 70's/early 80's. An amazingly gifted musician but even more so a kind soulful man telling beautiful stories through his songs. And he could always rock out with the best of them when he feels like stepping it up. He's been living in Scottsdale for a while and while he does pass through CA occasionally on a solo gig he's yet to come to SD. Next time he's close Im gonna make it a point to go where I have to.

Actually, he grew up in Garrett Park, about 20 miles from where I live now in Montgomery County, MD.  I got back to the states in 1974 in time to catch a couple of Grin concerts.  I was hooked from then on.

He's a great collaborator (even co-wrote a song with the novelist Clive Cussler) and solo musician.  Longtime friend of Neil Young and has had on and off connections with him and various incarnations of Crazy Horse.

My only "complaint" with Nils is that he doesn't "step it up," as much as I'd like him to.  When he does, he can produce goosebumps.

Oh to be 29 again .

I'm happy being the age that I am, but who's 29?  Shurely not mrs bman, that would make me a cradle robber!
