The Haiti Relief Show ::

Everyone had a great time last Sunday evening and the music was great with the added benefit that I saw a lot of people I had not seen in ages. I didn't take a camera with me and I was sorry that I didn't, but I will not make that mistake again.

I don't know what the total figure of money raised will be but the preliminary figure I was given yesterday was around $8500 which is not bad at all for an event that was put together in about a week and everyone who was involved should be proud of their effort!

A Huntsville Concert For Haiti Relief ::

Looks like plans have been finalized for a show this coming Sunday, January 24, at Lowe Mill with music by Microwave Dave (not sure if the nukes will be there), Kush, and Ken Watters. There will also be a silent auction of donated art works. The event begins at 4pm and will run as long as the enthusiasm holds out!

If any of the details change, I'll pass them on, but I plan to be there and hope that there is a large turnout for this. Proceeds will go to Wyclef Jean's foundation for Haiti relief, YĆ©le Haiti. I'll try to get some photographs posted after the event.

I Wonder ::

just how many people in North Alabama would agree with Pat Robertson about the cause of the earthquake in Haiti? Here's the video from Media Matters:

Pat Robertson is a excuse for a human being and should seriously call into question the sanity of anyone who supports him in any way!

Here is a pointed response video snagged from YouTube:

A Greek Restaurant In Huntsville ::

I had to pick up a prescription this morning at the Rite-Aid on the corner of Whitesburg and Airport and noticed a Greek restaurant across the road named Taziki's. I did a quick Google on the restaurant and see that it is classified as quick ethnic food which basically means that you order in a line and the food is delivered to your table. Unfortunately I don't think it offers my favorite Greek dish of fried baby squid, but I guess I'll have to try it out shortly and see how they do with lamb.
