|Ah yes, tis the season to be jolly....AGAIN! I'm with Hood. He thinks Christmas should happen every 5 years. But I realize that some of you Jukians are medicated enough to still enjoy the holidays. Poor... I mean lucky devils. All's I know is it's getting cold and I gotta work. Phooooey. I hadta take a part-time job at the car wash to pay for the many, many Xmas gifts I'm giving this year. Didja ever slop water on a SUV in 38 degree weather? Let me tell ya, it ain't no walk thru the vineyards in southern France. The things I do for peoples. Saint Southside; that's me.
On the music front, we are still working on the new Jukes CD. I hope to have it out for Spring, but then I said last Summer that it would be out by Autumn. But I promise that it will be released. Promise. Really. Oh, shut up. Also, New Years Eve is fast approaching. We will be doing some of the new material on that night, and I hope you like it. If not just fake that you do. I'm fragile. Ask any Juke. Hmmmm. Better not.
We lived thru another tour of merry, dirty, rainy old England. One of the highlights was staying in a 500 year old hotel in Nottingham. Joey Stann saw a ghost and we all ate big hunks of meat and drank the nut-brown ale. At least I think we did. I can't remember exactly. More ale please, miss. We stayed for two nights in Lincoln, a small town with a big cathedral. I was looking forward to viewing said edifice, but Swinnie booked us into a cheap hotel a few miles from the town centre. (that's how they spell "center" over there. The goofballs.) I took a cab into town for about $40.00 and was climbing up the hill to the damn thing when it started pissing down rain. All the shops were closed and I was the only idiot on the street, so I said the Hell with it and took another $40.00 cab back to the cheap hotel. Not happy, I was. But we did get to see the winking bridge in Newcastle, what Deb and Dave Druid said we hadta see. Thrilling. Next.

There will always be an England. Although Scotland, Ireland and Wales would rather there wouldn't.
As you all know, Mr. Bobby Bandilierra is working with Miss Jon Bon Jovi for a while. Just until he drives Jon crazy and they throw him off the Lear jet. This New Years we will have the services of both Glenn the General Alexander and Billy the Kid Walton, so expect some git-tar pyrotechnics. They both did yeoman’s work in Eu/England. Thanks, guys.
And thanks to all the fans who turned out in such fabled British towns as Frome, Lincoln, Holmefirth, Leemington Spa (?) and the one I think was called Brisbytonvillebergshire. And thank you to the Euro fans.
And thanks to the stalwart Juke that didn’t complain even once. I know there must be one.
