Re: “True Blues

It's not that the fans don't want new recordings, it's the radio DJ's that haven't given them much play with new discs. We fans would love a new recording once a month I'm sure!! However, as you said, Gillian, Justin and John, I believe, will continue to give us something new as time and effort permit. They are so busy touring right now and then Justin will be doing a solo tour across the Northeast that it's hard to find time to record. However, Justin has said he believes he has at least one more CD to publish that will give him a chance to express his own personal feelings - something he can't do under The Moody Blues name. And John has said that he is planning something really special for the 50th anniversary of DOFP in 2017! Plus next year will be the official 50th anniversary of this incarnation of The Moody Blues. So who knows what's ahead? I would just start saving my money for something spectacular from this legendary band with fans all over the world! SIWL, Arline

Re: “True Blues

It is a shame that they feel that new works by themselves is not what fans want but I suppose as long as Justin and John can release new material to know that there is still something new to give and express even after all these years. Maybe to celebrate 50 years in 2017 they could come up with something extra special that would be fantastic! PLEASE!! love Gillian

Re: “Bury the Problem

Biochar systems have so many market applications yet to be cultivated; "Carbon Fodder" feeds for Livestock in the EU, Australia & Japan, Plant Chemical Communications, (plant signaling), even Char building materials such as Biochar-Plasters which block Cellphone signals, the potential markets are massive.

CoolPlanet's investors & CEOs project (assert) that they will be the first Trillion Dollar Company, based on their $1.50/Gal. cost to produce Bio-Gasoline. Biochar the by product.

For a complete review of the current science & industry applications of Biochar please see my 2014 Soil Science Society of America Biochar presentation. How thermal conversion technologies can integrate and optimize the recycling of valuable nutrients while providing energy and building soil carbon, I believe it brings together both sides of climate beliefs.

Re: “Iconic Opening

I'm disappointed. I've been pretty excited about the opening of the Art Museum of Sonoma County only to find out that admission to its Studio 54 themed party, complete with red carpet, is $200/$175, if you're a member. I'm not wanting to go for the soirée but for some art in my neck of the woods. I didn't see a "normal" cost of admission for the exhibit that runs through May 24th in this article or via their website. Way to isolate a lot of us, especially the starving artist. Sheesh!

Re: “Crazy Christmas Carol

Years ago, when the girls were little, we acquired a box of children's records, and this record was in it. We sang it over and over, amazed that it even existed. I've hunted for it again, but it has disappeared in the turnover of the years. I'm so glad to find it again! Thank you!

Re: “So Long

I'm glad that the Bopeemian did a story on Matt. He was a really influential person. He definitely touched me.

I'm still going to say Bopeemian though, since that's my jam.

Matt, you are missed. Facebook went nuts for you.

Let's try to go nuts for each other with better timing in the future. Ok?

Thanks ladykiller Charlie! <3

Re: “Pretty Theft

It's always struck me as odd that ppl in Santa Rosa won't drive from Montgomery Village to Railroad Square to see a show, because "It's too far". But plenty will travel to SF and points beyond.

Re: “'Fresno' Bound

We saw these delightful guys at SHED when they performed during a West Coast Live show. They are really really good...give them a look see and find out for yourselves.

Re: “Pretty Theft

Saw all four shows two weekends ago and they are as stated...terrific! Pericles and Much Ado were our favorites as much for the stellar acting as for the magnificent stages/sets and lighting. Don't miss these shows!!

Re: “Pretty Theft

Love your description of Pericles! Best I've read... And you make me want to see this production of it...

Re: “The Heretic

Folks who know how to actually practice Holistic Management planned grazing somehow get much better results than university researchers who don't understand it.
I've visited Neil Dennis and Blain Hjertes ranches in Saskatchewan - they are part of a study of 7 farms that over a 3 year period sequestered nearly 9 tonnes of carbon per hectare per year. As Blain says. "All of these farms have had increases in grass production, had a decrease in inputs, are holding more water in the soil and producing more nutrient dense food. Clearly farmers are more profitable, consumers have better food and society has more water holding capacity mitigating floods and mitigating climate change. To view results check out the web site at www.soilcarboncoalition.org"

Re: “Ghost Stories

Right before Tom took over, my friend's dad was the manager. We were about 11/12 at the time and basically lived there and helped him with everything from ushering to sell concessions. I saw many things while hanging there before and after hours. The projection booth ghost was seen many times. Also have seen someone in the balcony on several occasions. I've never been afraid though. Hanging at the Phoenix was partly responsible for me being a ghost hunter myself. Good times!

Re: “The Heretic

Its not a system but holistic management. Anyone who tries to turn it in to a system will fail - as the trial showed.

Re: “The Heretic

Cattle that grazed according to Savory’s method needed expensive supplemental feed, became stressed and fatigued, and lost enough weight to compromise the profitability of their meat. And even though Savory’s Grazing Trials took place during a period of freakishly high rainfall, with rates exceeding the average by 24 percent overall, the authors contend that Savory’s method “failed to produce the marked improvement in grass cover claimed from its application.” The authors of the overview concluded exactly what mainstream ecologists have been concluding for 40 years: “No grazing system has yet shown the capacity to overcome the long-term effects of overstocking and/or drought on vegetation productivity.”

Re: “John Brown Lives

Mr. Benét was not French. He was born in Pennsylvania, the second son of a U.S. Army colonel.

Re: “Topsy Turvy

Carousel....where the moral of the story is that you can hit your wife, attempt to rob and murder someone, then commit suicide and when you get to "heaven's back gate" they'll let you go back down to earth to beat your daughter too. Just be sure to say you love them and then step right up to heaven. Yep well done Speckles on your musical promotion of domestic violence! It was awful.
