There's always a few "bad apples", right?

By the way... I know you're not a Clapton fan, but my hubby and my son are in N.Y.C. right now at the "Cream" Farewell concert! (hubby is A HUGE Clapton fan)

How DID you get left in the cold for Cream? I have some recorded material from this tour and it is pretty good--but I will say that Bruce and Baker haven't aged quite as gracefully as has Clapton. Not by a long shot...but Bruce's voice, even almost used up, is one of the sweetest things around...Tales of Brave Ulysses, indeed...

What a Gunga Din move that was! I can't believe that it was impossible to get a 3rd ticket at the Garden -- it might have cost $300 but I'll bet you would have gotten one.

Whew... LOL - I'm glad I ASKED! ;)

"My husband and my son took a limo to N.Y.C. to see Cream in concert....... but I got a FABULOUS t-shirt"!! LOL :D

I was happy to let my son go with his Dad.. :) They just got home and said the concert was UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME! Their seats were about 25 ft. from side of the stage.. in row A - so no one was in front of them... My son said Baker looked like he had "one foot in the grave"!, but he did a 15 minute solo! Your right about Bruce.. my husband was very impressed by him! And Clapton.. well, he's CLAPTON! - what more needs to be said! I haven't gotten all the details yet, but they said all of the "classic" Cream songs were performed.

I'm glad the two of them went and had a great time together - there's nothing like sharing an appreciation for music...

There's a DVD/CD set available of the London performances, if you're interested. It's advertised in the concert program. Check out www.cream2005.com

By the time I got through to get 'em, all that was left was "nose-bleed" seats! - all 3 shows sold out within hours! I REFUSE to go to a concert unless I have EXCELLENT seats, so I bought the tickets off the internet. Face value was $135.00 - I paid $285.00 each for 'em... BUT they were AWESOME seats!!

Besides... my son OWES ME NOW... ;) ... BIG TIME!!!... :D I WON'T BE raking leaves at all during the next few weeks - and that's a HUGE job around here!

fer sure, sorghum and blackstrap can't hold a candle to maple syrup and if you can find a righteous wholesale source there are three stores and a circle of at least 50 people that do cooperative buying already on all kinds of stuff, not just food.

PM it to me if you find anything.

Seems like I remember a movie about Rosa Parks.. It was either Angela Bassett or Cicily Tyson who played the part of Rosa. - am I wrong?

Halle Berry would be AWESOME though!

Rosa Parks to Lie in Honor at Capitol By JIM ABRAMS, Associated Press Writer
25 minutes ago



WASHINGTON - In death, Rosa Parks is joining a select few, including presidents and war heroes, accorded a public viewing in the Capitol Rotunda. It's the place where, six years ago, President Clinton and congressional leaders lauded the former seamstress for a simple act of defiance that changed the course of race relations.

On Sunday, Parks becomes the first woman to lie in honor in the vast circular room under the Capitol dome.

The House agreed by voice vote Friday that the body of Parks will lie in honor in the Rotunda on Sunday and Monday "so that the citizens of the United States may pay their last respects to this great American." The Senate approved the resolution Thursday night.

Congress has authorized this rite only 29 times since homage was paid to Henry Clay in 1852. Those honored include Abraham Lincoln, Gen. John Pershing, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey and unknown soldiers from the world wars, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. The most recent was President Reagan in June last year.

Parks is one of the few not to be a government official or a member of the military. In 1909 Pierre Charles L'Enfant, the architect who designed Washington, D.C., was commemorated 84 years after his death. In 1998 two Capitol Police officers slain in the line of duty lay in the ornate room 180 feet below the Capitol dome.

Parks, arrested in 1955 after refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man in Montgomery, Ala., turned to her minister, the Rev. Martin Luther King, for aid. King in turn led a 381-day boycott of the city's bus system that helped initiate the modern civil rights movement.

"This brave, courageous spirit ignited a movement, not just in Montgomery, but a movement that spread like wildfire across the American South and the nation," said Rep. John Lewis (news, bio, voting record), D-Ga., a leader of the civil rights movement in the 1960s.

"The Capitol serves as a beacon of American liberty, freedom and democracy, and Rosa Parks served as the mother of the America we grew to be," House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a joint statement.

Parks, who for many years worked in the office of Rep. John Conyers (news, bio, voting record), D-Mich., was honored with the Congressional Gold Medal in ceremonies in the Rotunda in June 1999.

Clinton said he was 9 years old when Parks refused to give up her seat. and he and his friends "couldn't figure out anything we could do since we couldn't even vote. So we began to sit in the back of the bus when we got on."

In 1987, Parks co-founded a nonprofit group, the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development, to help young people in Detroit, her home since 1957.

According to Conyers' office, a memorial service will be held for Parks at the St. Paul AME Church in Montgomery on Sunday morning.

Her body will then be flown to Washington for viewing in the Capitol on Sunday evening and Monday. President Bush is scheduled to attend memorial services at the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington on Monday, Conyers' office said. The White House said Bush would also go to the Rotunda to pay his respects.

From Monday night until Wednesday morning, Parks will lie in repose at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.

The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., which has restored the bus on which she refused to give up her seat, will truck it to the Wright museum for display.

Aretha Franklin is to sing at the funeral Wednesday at Greater Grace Temple Church in Detroit, said an official with the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute of Self Development.

Officials in Detroit and Montgomery, meanwhile, said the first seats of their buses would be reserved as a tribute to Parks' legacy until her funeral. Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick put a black ribbon Thursday on the first passenger seat of one of about 200 buses where seats will be reserved.

"We cannot do enough to pay tribute to someone who has so positively impacted the lives of millions across the world," Kilpatrick said.
