Bruce Cockburn – Solfest 2007

I put a lot of photos up at my Flickr acct:

Also JJ, another photographer has her’s up now too:
Photos by Jerri-Jo Idarius. She has a section of just Bruce on stage photos, and an audience grouping… I am in there some, and I found many of my friends too!

And Craig … check out the Solfest Audience photos!! There is a really good one of you and your daughter and another one of you in b&w, and yet another one!
And Clay— she got a great one of you too!!


Bruce Cockburn Solfest 2007

I have a report of the Solfest show on the www.cockburnproject.net

Solfest is always a fun gathering of the tribe. I see friends from all over there. I met up with Mark Squire (which I mention here again ). It’s always so good to see him. I also ran into Clay, who has stories to tell about the early days with Bruce and Colin Linden. This time I got his phone number.

Another Birthday Past

Solfest – Bruce Cockburn

I finally had the time to put up a new front page at the Cockburn Project. I still have about a dozen or so good pictures that I will put up here and on my gallery.

Also had a birthday on the 11th.
Russel says I am finally playing with a full deck *lol*.

What other significance does ’52’ have..? Well, I was born in ’52 and there’s 52 weeks in a year, that’s about all I can think of.

We had a good day, rummage sales in Ferndale, movie (Cellular***) in Eureka and chinese dinner in Fortuna at the Hunan.

I also got a vhs tape of the Solfest show! It’s a bit shaky but the sound is good..and I used it to transcribe all the song comments for the piece I did for the Cockburn Project.


Solfest ’04

August 21 found us down the road again to Hopland and Solfest.
It was a great festival with tons of learning exhibits if you were new to or just beginning to think about solar energy or sustainable living. We mostly browsed the booths and hung out by the pond in the shade

until Bruce came on stage.

Bruce Cockburn at Solfest in Hopland

It was a good show, it was hot and dusty and he coughed quite a bit. He had lots to say and I did take notes. I am in the process of writing them up for the Cockburn Project (www.cockburnproject.net), but I just haven’t had time to do much on the computer this past week or so.


On the road


Ok, so Friday night we get home from 12 hours at Reggae, and there’s a message on the answering machine that.. Russel has an appointment with an ENT(ear-nose-throat) doctor at the VA in SF on WEDNESDAY (2 days after Reggae)..at 11AM!!

Well long story short, it’s a lot like this entry.. in that we had to go to Eureka on Tuesday for the new engine check up and a appointment at the Eureka VA. While we were there, I was thinking about how getting up at 4am on Wed to make the 11am appointment in SF..and it wasn’t making us happy.

So we decided to go home and pack and drive to Santa Rosa on Tuesday, go the SF VA on Wednesday and drive home that day…
geez we were both so fried from Reggae to have to do all that too.
And nothing was found a miss with the ENT, so we still have no answers to Russel’s pain and congestion…meanwhile his voice gets stranger and stranger every day.

We did stop on the way home in Healdsburg…lots bigger than I remembered it being, cute/upscale downtown center area.. we ate at a thai food place, Lotus Thai, that was excellent. Will have to stop there again.

We always stop at the Real Goods and Solar Living Institute for a road break in Hopland, and we will be going down there this weekend (August 21) to see Bruce Cockburn at the Solfest.

Whew!! busy busy on the road kind of month.

In between all this I am still painting at the house and we are doing lots of work to make the house more livable, cuz well, we would like to MOVE IN someday!
