ITALIAN TOUR UPDATE:
We gave up on the audience with Pope Benny, because he is retired. We are not sure about Pope Frankie, but he is doing better than most.

Eddies are whirlpools or currents that run contrary to the mainstream ... that's us!


Quotable Quotes Department

"... I soon got used to this singing, for the sailors never touched a rope without it. ... Some sea captains, before shipping a man, always ask him whether he can sing out at a rope."

-Herman Melville, Redburn, Chapter 9 (1849)
