I'm home ... it was a lovely drive. I went straight west from exapno's house (thanks for the floor space) and drove across highway 20. The area in NW Illinois is lovely, you drive on a ridge much of the time with valleys on either side. MUCH better than I80.
musicmutt's concert last night was brilliant, the best I have ever seen him do.
Toyboat practice went well, we went through the entire set with few glitches, and then went back and worked on a few problem songs. The Demicon show should be very good.
