Joan Baez at the Newport Folk Festival

5-joan-baez[1]Joan Baez will be performing at the Newport Folk Festival this year.  So will Pete Seger who is currently 90 years young.

Fans will remember that the Newport Folk Festival was where the Robert Zimmerman showed off his electric stuff, in1965, to the great chagrin of the audience.

A personal note here:  Joan still looks pretty hot;  don’t you other 50+ year old men think?

Last year a band that will be performing this year was picking up garbage at the Festival last year, check out this link and see if you can figure out who that was…

jul04haybalesThe last day in July in Kansas often means nothing is very green anymore.  Usually lack of rain and lots of wind have made our state brownish by now.  Not this year!  Everything is still green, and although we’ve had some stretches of hot weather, we’ve also had many pleasant and cooler days.

What’s going on with everyone this last day of July?
