OK, first some news. Within a few days, I will post a link on this site that will take the readers of this site to a free download from the new, not-yet-released CD. I made that promise, and gosh darnit, I'm going to keep it. So be looking for that. I got the master back yesterday, so the song (or two) will go up as soon as I can get to it.

Second, here are the revised (and, hopefully, final) dates of the OK/KS/MO tour:

Sept 5 Edmond, OK
Sept 6 Stillwater, OK
Sept 7 Clever, MO
Sept 8-9 Wichita, KS
Sept 10 Tulsa, OK

The PA/MD dates are still the same.

I'm really eager to get the TX shows on the calendar. Here's my issue. Lots of folks want weekends. If you're in any of the TX areas that I've mentioned here, and you'd be willing to host on a weeknight, let me know. I only have so many weekends left, so I'm really going to have to do some weeknight shows if I want to hit all the spots that have shown interest.

Finally, on an unrelated note, my sister-in-law got me one of these:

and it absolutely RULES. I don't know what these things cost, because I didn't pay for this one, but the Starbuck's in my neighborhood is taking a major hit, as I have given my full allegiance and affection to this wonder of beverage technology. I daresay I have found the nectar of the gods.*

*The management and staff of rosskingworldtour in no way endorse pantheism, polytheism, or any other pagan "isms," and wish to affirm their orthodox and utterly benign religious leanings. Furthermore, the management and staff at rosskingworldtour affirm that there is but one God, and, to their knowledge, said God does not, officially or unofficially, endorse any beverage, be it nectar, juice, or any variety of liquid.

*Coffee is an addictive substance and must be consumed responsibly.

I think God endorses both milk and honey, although arguably only milk is a beverage.

At least at room temperature.

Still hoping for the upstate NY tour

You know, I've always felt that the management of rosskingworld tour was really the problem in that organization. I've never had problems with the staff - they're great; helpful and generous with information every time I've needed.

Ross, can you tell us what your plans are for 2008 to better streamline communications between your management and staff?

Weeknights make us happy.

Wow, free songs are even better than free lyrics! Thanks much, Ross. Can't wait to hear the new stuff.

"Just pure pleasure, one cup at a time." It's like the Bible says, "there's no such thing as too much of a good thing." I think if Jesus was alive today and went to a wedding that happened in the morning, and they ran out of coffee, he'd change the coffee-maker into a TASSIMO.

Mis-quoting the Bible, while also issuing a veiled (but compelling) reminder that wine is a "Kingdom-endorsed" beverage... this guy must go to Com Church.

It reminds me of a another great scripture: "God helps those who help themselves."

amen, brother Joe. Amen.

Thanks for blogging the coffee maker! I think it rules, too. Although, I must let people know they run between $129-$169 new(highest price has H2O filter) - BUT I got mine (& yours) on Ebay for half the price! I am happy you aren't the type of brother-in-law that would be offended to have an Ebay coffee maker. :)
Love ya, MAK
