Happy Birthday Jerry!

Today is Jerry Garcia's birthday, which I nearly forgot because the day he died, 8/9/95, sticks in my mind more. We sure miss you, man. We miss the Grateful Dead and the whole Dead scene so much. Thanks for everything, Jerry.

"Such a long, long time to be gone
And a short time to be there...."


  1. A name I know but that's all, I'm afraid. I'm the sort of sad drip who remembers Percy Bysshe Shelley was born on August 8th 1792 and died on July 22nd 1822.

    I feel like I should go and buy a pint of Cherry Garcia now, to celebrate... hmm, a new excuse for me to eat B&J's. I love it!
