Performing at the Iron Horse Music Hall
Singer-songwriter Dan Hicks is truly an American original.
Since the early 1960s, Hicks has deftly blended elements of Swing, Jazz, Folk and Country music to create the appealing sound he sometimes calls "Folk Jazz".


Tickets look to be at $23 per seat, General Admission.

I knew we'd get Max on board pretty quick.......

That time of the year if it's a nice clear day it's fun to go to Quabbin Resevoir, try to spot the bald eagles feeding on the deer carcasses they drag out on the ice. Nice area to do a little snowshoeing also. Quabbin isn't too far out of the way.

This place is pretty cool in a rather reserved way.......

And I'm sure some of you would be up for snowplowing the back mountain roads aroung there.

Lots of time to plan for those that want to make it a full day.

Bring your kids and your sweetie pies. It's the day before Valentines Day.
Is there gonna be a raffle?
I already have my shift knob, and like everything else it's bigger than Baker's


Hey Secco. Nap time is over. Sign up. I'll come and get you.

Hmmmmm....a raffle. What could we kick out? Besides me? Too early in the year for me to front a convertible. Any ideas out there? We could raffle off a "Night of Intrigue with CCM"?

Secco will be there, don't you worry. Rick's gonna hog tie him and drag him behind. Should straighten out that disc issue.

Big heavy knobs are highly overrated. So are aftermarket exhaust systems.

Yay! Baker thinks my MINI is overrated on two counts!
I was actually speaking of my own. Got the "big knob" on Saturday, had a PlayMINI exhaust installed last night. Did the BMP ProMINI about a year ago. Springs and rear sway I'm delaying 'til the early spring, no sense clearing the roads this winter for the state.

It's all a bunch of foolishness, don't you know?

But you do have one thing on me. You've got Brown. I lust for Brown.

Going to Dan?

And, just so you know, bigger rear swaybars are highly overrated, too.
I could not agree with you more. The one I have is off of an S, has/will cost me nothing except the time for the install. Should make a minor difference.

Until I go to sell the car. Then it has all these easy upgrades that more than a few owners do right after purchase. Gonna wow me a youngster into buying it at an inflated price. It's the American way, right?

When did this morph into a Mod Thread? It's about the music. Pay attention. Focus Focus Focus!
I actually prefer the Vibe or the Matrix but the Focus I hear is excellent in the proper configuration. Ooops losing concentration. Music music music. Do wah diddy diddy dum diidy do.

Okay BakerBoy I think that reigned them in. Fa La La La La

This from a guy who lives in a state with a regressive 50 m.ph. speed limit. ;)

If there was only one upgrade I could pick for the Cooper S it would be a rear sway bar.
I was saying that it's overrated in the same way the Whalen or an exhaust is - ie, it's cool and I have it. I was hoping people would catch the implied smile-y

But, since I don't have an S...
