1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    The first get together of my new band took place on Sunday afternoon. We consist of a fabulous female singer (who will from time to time play acoustic guitar, harmonica or trumpet), another guitar player, a bass player and a drummer. The musical focus is covers of old country, alt country, country rock and Americana (for stuff that doesn't easily fit the other categories). The first eight songs we worked through on Sunday were:

    • The Rolling Stone-Dead Flowers
    • Emmylou Harris-Heaven Only Knows
    • Lucinda Williams-Lost It
    • Ryan Adams-Firecracker
    • Townes Van Zandt-Pancho and Lefty
    • Lone Justice (Maria McKee)-Ways to Be Wicked
    • Linda Ronstadt-Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me
    • Rodney Crowell-Ain't Livin' Long Like This
    All suggestions welcome.

    I think I may come to regret the "all suggestions welcome" invitation.

    Believe it or not, right around the corner from where I live, not 30 feet away, is a statue of the unofficial first mayor of Vancouver, Gassy Jack.

    Mad, I was just reading about him (and Vancouver in general).
    Beautiful place from the pics. Kitsilano Beach looks great. The cityscape looks so damn good in the pics.
    I read about Gastown too.

    Looks like an awesome place.
