hey there!! just checking in from home to give a quick update as to what's going on. we wrapped up the tour about a month ago or so and i've just been home since spending time with the family and getting caught up after being out on the road for 16 months. i've been real busy since getting home - i had my anniversary, 2 parties for the twins 3rd birthday halloween and i even got to go to both elmo live AND the wiggles. that's what i call a party!!! also had a huge stack of mail to go through and a ton of stuff to do around the house. slowly getting caught up.

i was also able to make it to game 1 of the world series. it was tough being a sox fan but i wanted to check out the new yankee stadium and i was home and could get tix so i went. stadium really was nice and the phillies won that day. i have to say congrats to the yankees - they really were the best team this year. it's amazing what spending a half billion dollars in the off season can buy. already moved onto football and rooting for the pats. Sunday's game against indy should be awesome!!! looking forward to watching that!

I’m also looking forward to start being able to practice more and continue writing for the new record which we'll be starting sometime next year. who knows what that will sound like, but it's always fun to be able to sit down in my practice room and start listening to old ideas and working on new ones.

that's really about it for me. looking forward to the holidays and just spending more time with the family and practicing. hope everyone is well and thank you for your continued support of the band - we appreciate it!! i'll check in again soon.

Hey my friend said you guys gave a great performance up at the Meadowbrook in Guilford, NH this past summer. When will you be perfoming in this area again? The football game game on Sunday should be interesting Pats against Indy. I'm a devoted Pats fan 25 plus years but I also like the quarterback for Indy Payton Manning. I would like Pats to win but if Indy wins I won't be to upset.
