so, i hear that punx.phil (see his photo here) saw his shadow this morning over in my ole fair state pennsylvania, which means (sorry to be the bearer of bad news, unless you are a skier!) 6 more weeks of WINTER. hang in there east coasters: curl up with a hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps (unless you arent drinking age, then sans the peppermint!) in front of the fire, wear your favorite fleece jacket (mine has snowflakes on it!), and stay warm!!!! it WILL be spring before you know it!

hey! i just joined kelly's lot in the hip to hep c campaign! this is what it'a all about: this is all a part of a Hepatitis C awareness campaign that will bring information to people all over the USA through musicians and artists. the goal is to educate as many people as we can about hepatitis C and help to erase the stigma attached to to this disease. musicians and artists will offer postcards about hepatitis C at their shows and events which include information about risk factors and other important facts about hep c. for more information go to www.HepCCoalition.com
