Here’s a clip from PTTO that explains why I’m such a big fan of Flow.

I’ve been spending the winter studying clawhammer banjo & breaking SUP surfboards. Hang in there folks. It’s almost spring.

Sisiboo & Bear River
Posted on March 3, 2014

I can’t believe I’m drinking the last of my Sissiboo Coffee.

I picked it up from Jon & Erin – the same folks who run The Rebekah in Bear River, NS.

When they’re not roasting fair-trade coffee, Jon & Erin host music shows; like the one I played with Acres & Acres on Valentines’ Day a couple weeks ago.

I had a great time –  & now I’ll have to go back for some more beans.
