Kingsley Flood Tonight @ The Rhumb Line

click photo to listen to Kingsley Flood.

Last minute shout out,  that Kingsley Flood will be playing The Rhumb Line tonight from 9:30 pm to 12:30 am

I absolutely love Kingsley Flood and have since the first time I got to hear them play.  They bring something new to the plate American Roots ( lively folk) with a little bit of a country thing going on. You have to admit there is some pretty fine knee slapping music here.  I got the CD “Dust Windows” a while ago and played it over and over again, also sharing it with others. They seem to like it a lot. I personally think they have a masterpiece here. When you can listen to it in the car for over and hour singing along it’s great.  My favorite songs are and it’s hard to choose from them all  Cul de Sac, Back in the back, Devil’s arms and When I grow up. They seem to get me to the dance floor a lot faster than the others. Listening to their CD it’s like everything is in the right place, especially the fiddle. Check out their songs I am sure that you will agree.

Come out and treat yourself to some real fine music.


MUMS THE WORD in Essex–do you have your mums yet?

No,  not MY Mum, the fantastic Sue Lufkin, but chrysanthemums–and they are lovely,  just like my Mum!  Did Fall come too fast for you to get your mums yet?  One day it was Summer and then BAM–Fall!

Anyway, the Essex Merchant’s group is holding their annual “Mums The Word” campaign to not only bring added beauty to our lovely town with the addition of flowers everywhere but to raise a few dollars for the group as well.

Last night a hardy group of citizens braved the wind and showers to raise a glass to kick off the “Mums the Word” campaign and help with the pick up of some of the pre-order flowers–but there are lots and lots of lovely plants, just waiting for YOU!

So here’s the deal.  Stop by Joshua’s Corner–it is the shop with the gold trim up on the hill on the corner of 133 and Southern Ave (the road to Manchester) and purchase your mums during store hours, 10-5 daily and 12-5 on Sundays.  Mums are $3.95 for 1-20 8″ pots or $3.50 each for over 20 plants.

As you can see by my pictures, the plants are gorgeous and ready to go, full of blooms to provide color for your yard and neighborhood.  Pick up a few for a friend who needs a little cheering up and leave them secretly on their front steps.  Decorate the  little island at the end of your street or fill a neglected planter that passersby will notice when driving along the road.

Spread the Love, buy some Mums—–remember…..Mums the Word!
