  1. Ira and Robyn... I've got the same home towns as both you guys. My 1st 19 years were in Andover, Mass, too (just like Robyn). Jay Leno grew up around the block from me (when I lived in 'the vale' section). Later I moved to 'the village' where the Shawsheen River loves to flood (just like it did two weeks ago!). It was the best place in the world to grow up. (No McMansion for our family. Simple 4 bedroom saltbox along the RR tracks.) I'm still a Sox fan. My New England accent comes thru aftah a few beahs. These days I'm a Jersey boy. Been here since 1981. Spent 13 years in Highland Park (around the corner from you Ira). These days I am in Princeton, the most Andover-like town in all of NJ. It's beautiful. (Watch 'IQ' or 'A Beautiful Mind' and you'll see what I see every day!) They say you can never go home again...but I found the perfect town that makes it all possible. Dave
  2. Thanks for the kind wishes everybody! I can see retirement from here!!!
  3. Grrrr.... I wanted those 8-tracks! Sad I didn't get 'em. Glad I raised the final price for Bernie's sake. Who got the mini-guitar? I wanted that one too! Dave
  4. Harry, Men marry for love. Most women marry for other reasons. I know it's a generalization, and will piss a lot of women off, but bear with with me. When the 'other reasons' have either been addressed or become unachievable, there's nothing left for the relationship to hold on to. I was married for 25years. I married for love. She married for other reasons. When the marriage hit hard times I worked my butt off to make it survive. All she had left was 'resentment'. There was no love on her part. And probably never was. If the love was there to begin with with you and your wife, great! You've got that to build on. If not, well, maybe it's time to go your separate ways. I re-married two years ago. Again, for love. Fortunately, she married for love too. Did she marry me for 'other reasons', too? You bet, but we've talked about them. And we will talk about them them till death do us part. Dave
  5. ...and it's not even my birthday! thanks for the wonderful gifts! dave
  6. C'mon down to Princeton...we've got black squirrels all over the place. In fact I've got two who frequent my back yard every day. And now they have names "Jimbo" and "The Kid"! Dave
  7. No fancy card. No poem. Just a 'hey, happy birthday, man'. Have a good one... Dave
  8. I changed MY mind!!! "I Reach For the Light" is good. But "IYCYM" is the very best of the Raspberries. dave
  9. R'Berries: I Reach For The Light EC: All For Love dave
  10. and now it's 12:13! (I really need to find a job.)
  11. I have to admit Doug, you've got a point. While Bernie continues to make the site in general a truly fabulous salute to Eric, Wally, Jim and Dave, the Community Section seems to be morphing into a platform for self promotion. What drives me crazy (for example) is when I see a new thread that's labeled "New Photos", I click it thinking I'm going to get some new shots to Eric and Wally jamming at some Cleveland nightclub. Instead I get pictures of members' cats, dogs and rose gardens (complete with animated butterflies). But until there's some news from Eric and/or the Raspberries I guess it's only natural that we create our own news. Dave
  12. Hey Marvin and all of our fellow Canadian EC.com members, Happy Canada Day! Party on! dave
  13. I will like ANY version of GATW, but this one sounds like it was produced and arranged by a high school music teacher. "ok suzie you sing this part. matthew you sing here, here and here. And you kids in the band...no foolin' around!"
  14. "Talk To Me" a song he co-wrote with Edward Burch (on The Palace At 4AM) is a pop music gem (bells, jangly guitars, harmonies). It's sad he's gone. Dave
  15. How about a live "Piano Cam", a live feed of Eric at work, at home. Dave
  16. I went to a new barber yesterday. He asked me if I wanted to keep my comb-over!!! I spent the next 20 minutes trying to convince him that it wasn't a comb-over...it's just the way I liked to part my hair. Sheeesh, is right! Dave
  17. Thanks Eric, Wally, Jim and Dave for keeping the dream alive! And thanks Bernie (aka 5th Raspberry) for making us feel like the luckiest fans in the world. Dave
  18. My whole life, on St Patty's Day, my parents (and the entire Shea Clan of NE Massachusetts) would stumble out of bed (stumble being the operative word here!) to be the first to shout "St Patrick's Pot On You!". By being the first to say it, everyone owed you a dime. (So you all owe me dime!) I think the origins of the line means "In honor of St. Patrick, the next pot of beer is on you!", an Irishman's way of only buying one round (and considering how much we Irish like our beer, I think it's 'brilliant'!) Happy St Patricks Day Everyone. Celebrate responsibly. dave
  19. Here marvin...maybe this will help you; this board with suck without you! dave
  20. You guys are the best! Thanks for all the good (and delicious) wishes. Dave
  21. Happy Birthday MJ!! Go to the gym...that way you can eat allll the cake you want! dave
  22. Charles Schultz called me an 'idiot' over the phone. I had written a couple of Cheerios commercials that used the Peanuts gang. When I called to get his approval of the copy he decided it was 'beat up the new copywriter day'. (The commercials ended up running exactly how I wrote them.) Rest in peace, Chuck. Dave
