I haven't been entering anything into this blog lately, and I'm not likely to do anything in the near future. I'll keep the blog open in case I get inspired.

Christmas 2012

We didn't go to the festival this year--Sally had health problems and I didn't have the energy. Now we are down in St. Vincent. I occasionally put stuff on the main SVG blog, but not often. We're getting old

Going North

With a little luck we'll attend the New Bedford Festival. The initial publicity is on the internet and when we get back to Berkley I'll add a reference. I may not take any photos--i'm in my 80s now and I don't have as much energy, even for writing,

Summerfest 2011

We went to saturday's program for a while: I'm in my 80's now and Sally in her 70's and we don't have the endurance we used to have back when the Eisteddfod was at SMU. However, we enjoyed the sets by David Jones and Martha Burns. I took some pictures that I'll put on Flickr, and probably put the better ones here as well. But not tonight.

New Bedford Summerfest

The Summerfest has a facebook page with a good video provided by the Quincy Patriot Ledger. The Karlek page in Flickr (mine) has some Summerfest stills and some stills (by me) of the Whalers. My SVG blog at has photos (by others) at various venues.

I may well be working on a book about the Whalers when we get back to SVG in the fall.
