They ride to remember. Traveling by horseback 330 miles from Crow Creek, S.D., to Mankato, through harsh December weather, Dakota tribal members completed this year’s Dakota Wokiksuye memorial ride on Thursday morning. As in years past, they shared sacred sage smoke, prayers and dances to commemorate the 151st anniversary of the largest mass execution in the nation’s history. On the day after Christmas 1862, on orders signed by President Lincoln, 38 Dakota fighters were hanged in Mankato following the bloody, six-week U.S.-Dakota War.

To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime." ~Romain Rolland, Nobel Prize 1915

The Christmas Ritual Rhyme~By Sandra & Sent By Bonnie

The old dog sighs as he lies upon
the cold, wet cement floor,
Waiting for the ones he loves,
but he won't see them anymore.

They're celebrating Christmas cheer,
the time is getting near,
And in order to afford the extra toys and beer,
they can't buy food for an old dog,
so instead they brought him here.

No one wants an old dog,
even puppies get passed by,
Because most folks come to deliver,
not to rescue; let dogs die.

The old dog hears the young dogs cry,
they wait together and they know
That when the Christmas lights come down
it will be their time to go.

The children ride their new bikes,
Dad and Mother have new shoes;
The old dog doesn't understand,
he thought they loved him, too.

On New Years day, the children play,
they laugh and chant "Good will!"
And the old dog's body feeds the flies
at the county dump landfill.

ALSO, I MUST THANK TO DON, FOR ALL HIS SUPPORT OVER THE YEARS IN KEEPING HORNHEAD PRODUCTIONS WORKING!! THANX TO THE MANY FANS WHO HAVE HONORED ME BY LISTENING TO MY MUSIC....IT TAKES THE LISTENER AS WELL AS THE ARTIST!

PLEASE CHECK OUT MY KEYBOARD WORK ON THE CD 'IT'S ABOUT TIME' - BLAKE VAUGHAN, WHICH YOU CAN LISTEN/PURCHASE @ CD BABY! SEARCH USING - BLAKESTER - MUCHO THANX TO MY BRO JOHN, FOR HIS HELP GETTING MY TRACKS TO THE L.A. STUDIO FROM HORNHEAD STUDIO, CHICAGO!!!

OF COURSE...NONE OF THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE LOVE & SUPPORT OF MY WIFE, JANICE!

THANX FOR LISTENING:)

Compassion - By Sharing Our Warmth, We Create a Supportive Environment.
The Greatness of a Nation and its Moral Progress can be Judged by the way its Animals are Treated. [Gandhi]

“To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime."

I started a station especially for your beautiful songs of compassion Rich, keep up the tremendous work and thank you for being who you are, you are a truly talented artist and a tireless advocate for the voiceless, thank God for you. This song is a valuable asset in the struggle to stop the annual killing of seal pups.

All the best

Hi Rich - Remember the night when you were with Orion Express at Shire Road when you had the bic lighter installed in your cast to be able to play with your broken hand/arm to impress Grace Slick and Craig Chaquico. I am looking forward to listening to your new music, loved your stuff with Blake - Steve in Newcastle, CA
Hi there Rich,

just calling in to say it's great you are here & good luck with your songs for important causes, let's hope 2007 is a better year for the defenceless smile :)

Thank you for all you are doing!!!!

Love from Maria & Paul xx
Hi Rich,just heard 'Birthday' in the charts, nice atmospheric feel to it and some great piano playing, love the feel of it,also some great guitar work near the end, well done!!keep up the good work.
Hi Rich, We’re finally catching up with our messageboard, so here we are smile :) We do appreciate the kind comments on Without You! Enjoying the jazzy stylings on “Phase III”, nice funky licks!!! Always nice to hear some organ chops too! And that really is an amazing stack of keyboards and equipment you have there (especially compared to our pathetic lo-tec setup comprising 2 tin cans and a computer made out of old fridge partssmile :)). It’s been forever but we wanted to say thank you again for listening –been tied up with offline distractions and all that “real life” stuff, sorry it took so long! Finally we’re back (and with a new Myspace page on www.myspace.com/laurabolle), so Happy 2006 to you and all good wishes from Laura and Chris smile :)
