Seems there has been lots of good news lately around alternative energy, recognition that something serious needs to change around fossil fuels, and now "The Monsanto Years", Neil Young's new album adding more publicity to the changes that need to happen.

Is it possible we're at the tipping point?

Oh Poo! No stops near us. Otherwise I would volunteer as quickly as ants on a picnic.

If anyone sees Mr Young, please tell him that people on the Left Coast of Canada love his music and permaculture too.

Looking forward to living vicariously through those who do participate. Please let us know all about it!

I sent an e-mail for the July 8th and 9th shows in Denver. My wife and I would love to help out with this ! We got to see Neil with his old band buddies Crosby,Stills and Nash a couple of years ago at Red Rocks. Pretty awesome !

Canadian content laws on radio, ensure that we all heard lots of Neil Young, as early as I can remember. Somewhere around 30% of programming must be of Canadian origin. Thus we hear lots of Neil, Gordon Lightfoot, Alanis Morissette, Pete Seeger, Steppenwolf, Rush, Joni Mitchell. ...

I've heard enough Celine Dion, Sheniah Twain and Michael Buble to last several lifetimes. I never need to hear Loverboy, Kim Mitchell or the children's entertainer Raffi, ever again.

Oh ya,

I had to work at 4 am the next morning so I left at 9 PM. Neil didn't take the stage till after that so no Neil for me.

But thanks Neil for putting this all together !!

Get the music !
