I wish they would too...I found it interesting in a depressing kind of 
way that the recent 2-year anniversary of the end of the Oils passed 
without so much as a peep on the list.  Is it one of those unspoken but 
acknowledged & silently mourned things, or is everybody just too busy 
with holiday prep?  I wasn't about to be the first to raise the topic 
that day.

Hope everybody's not getting too pre-Christmas crazy....just have a bit 
of official shopping left to do here,  a shitload of baking not yet 
begun, and two Muskoka chairs to finish building for my parents' 
presents...one is stained & partially assembled, the pieces of the other 
are scattered all over the workbench awaiting properly sized stain 
brushes, and about 10 days left to finish it all before stuffing the 
works into the trunk of my car.  O fun and joy.

Happy happies, everyone -

>When I started turning from a Midnight Oil fan to an obessed Midnight Oil Fan, I always had this idea that something larger was looming. I'm very excited to hear Garrett speaking out as a politician, and while his retirement was tough two years ago, I like to think of it as part of the evolution that was inevitable. Now if the rest of the band would play live and make some new music together, I would call the whole situation "Nothing lost, much gained."
