London attack: Four dead in Westminster terror incident
Four people, including an armed police officer and a man believed to be the attacker, have died in a terrorist incident near the UK's Houses of Parliament, Scotland Yard has said. One of the victims was among several pedestrians hit by a car on Westminster Bridge, before it crashed. An officer protecting Parliament was stabbed by an attacker, who was shot by police. At least 20 people were injured, including three other officers.
A cowardly act of terrorism. My heart goes out to the innocent victims, their families and friends.
Prayers for the victims and their families... The attacker got what he deserved.

Die hard fans will want to hear what has been made of the two Tull heavy hitters, ‘Loco, (‘Locomotive Breath’)and ‘Aquafugue’ (‘Aqualung’). ‘Loco’ is a highlight, particularly as Ian’s excellent flute is offset by the strings as they map out the melody line.
‘Aquafugue’ is given a more sonorous reading with the repeated riff punctuating a sombre claustrophobic sounding piece, before a spirited unison of strings and a belated vocal (the least impressive on the album).
14 minute interview last year in Seattle, Washington LINK Ian Anderson Schools Us On Jethro Tull October 27, 2016 3:23 PM By Scott Vanderpool Jethro Tull sits in some pretty good company among the Great Bands of Rock and Roll History who’ve been utterly and completely snubbed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame…they’ve been eligible for 23 years now, and never so much as a nomination. Which of course does not reflect well on the rock hall in Cleveland. Hello? Cleveland?
There are still some who will address the band’s creative genius Ian Anderson as “Jethro” or “Mr. Tull”, but Friday night in the Moore Theater he’ll introduce us to the real Jethro Tull. Sort of.
He’s made him the focus of what Pete Townsend would call a “rock opera”, a multi-media extravaganza that brings the powdered wig wearing inventor of the “seed drill” into the 21st Century… and it includes most of Ian’s rock classics!
I got the chance to talk with him from his Portland hotel room coming out of the bullpen for Gary Crow…
Special Thanks to Drew Stawin Photography @ Smith's Olde Bar LINK 1LINK 2LINK 3 Martin Barre, formerly of Jethro Tull, and his band blew the roof off Smith's Olde Bar to a packed house Wednesday night. He's 70 years young and has no sign of slowing down. The set consisted of a healthy dose of Tull tracks, originals, a couple Beatle covers, and a Porcupine Tree track. Fabulous!
18th March In 1881 - Barnum and Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth opened in Madison Square Gardens.
On February 4th I took my wife to see the final year of this incredible circus and had a blast! Things are quite different now with less of the animals that you used to see for years and years. However, the days of The Greatest Show on Earth will be ending after this year. Check it out!
2 Priceless Backstage Passes from TULL '77 & '87 by Drew Stawin The 1st photo pass I was ever granted was 3/21/77, 40 years ago next week, and it was for Jethro Tull at Cobo Hall in Detroit. I was in 12th grade. So cool that almost 40 years to the day later I will be photographing the legendary Martin Barre again. Martin was a huge part of Jethro Tull from 1969 to 2011.
Interview with Martin Barre of Jethro Tull by Garret K. Woodward Known as one of the all-time iconic guitarists in rock-n-roll history, Martin Barre became world-renowned when he joined legendary act Jethro Tull in 1968. And for the better part of half a century, Barre's hands played some of the most recognizable guitar solos in rock music, with "Aqualung," "Cross-Eyed Mary" and "Locomotive Breath" rising to the top, beloved by fans and critics alike. Currently on tour with his solo band, Barre is finding a rebirth at age 70, onstage and off. Interview conducted by Garret K. Woodward, features editor for The Smoky Mountain News, on March 14, 2017. www.smokymountainnews.com

futureshock: Having explored many teas from around the world, green, herbal, spice, hopefully all safe, I can say a great cup of quality tea well prepared is worth the effort and wait. Cheap and fast rancid black tea flavored with container ship suet, isn't! ♫ ♪

steelmonkey: Peter Green on great Judaic fretmeisters list with Knopfler, Slash, Lou Reed, Randy California (Spirit) and Mike Bloomfield. Come to think of it, Randy California belongs in top league regardless of kosher-ness.
