Hi everyone. Pete here, Mel's ball-and-chain. Wanted to let you all know that we lost power due to the severe ice storm, so Mel (who is in Vermont) is unable to post today. I had to go to Boston today for some errands and a rehearsal for my band's 10th annual Holiday Jubilee show, and for the show itself, which is tomorrow night. Hopefully the power will be restored soon -- Mel is supposed to come to Boston to be a guest vocalist at this show (her specialty is singing "Santa Baby," sometimes perky new wave-style, sometimes femme fatale-style.)

Oh, I should say, Mel stayed in Vermont to keep the fireplace and woodstove going so that our pipes don't freeze.

Watch this space... will let you know how this all plays out. Hopefully we won't have to put a wig on Kevin Quinn and have him sing "Santa Baby." (Or... maybe that would be a good thing... hmmm...)

Happy (icy) holidays,
Pete
