The Meters were an American funk band based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Meters performed and recorded their own music from the late 1960s until 1977 and also played an influential role as backing musicians for other artists such as Lee Dorsey and Dr John. While the band never enjoyed significant mainstream success, they are considered one of the progenitors of funk music, and their work influenced many other bands, both contemporary to their work, and after their heyday.

Art Neville, the group's frontman, launched a solo career around the New Orleans area in the mid-1950s, while still in high school. The Meters formed in 1965, with a line-up that included keyboardist and vocalist Art Neville, guitarist Leo Nocentelli, bassist George Porter Jr. and drummer Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste later joined by percussionist/vocalist Cyril Neville. They became the house band for Allen Toussaint and his record label, Sansu Enterprises.

We have about 16" right now with another forecasted 12" to come. The drifts are several feet and piling. My Labrador loves the snow...

I am planning to head out and start snowblowing very soon.

Here's the lunch we had at the Vietnemese restaurant "Thang Long" last week in Philly. Capp knows good food when he experiences it. The food was very good. Good "stick to ribs" cuisine.

Next door to the restaurant is a place that has live chickens and ducks that can be purchased fresh killed.  :o They have them all on display in cages.

Hey no fair!  All you flatlanders getting all the snow and you don't even know how to deal with it! 

We could use a few yards of snow up here!   ;D

Sure we do. A gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs and beer.  ;D

What more can one ask.  ;)

Ah, Cap's turning into a shock jock type. Next up - grubs on a bed of lettuce, with a mango salsa. Chocolate ant covered cupcakes for desert. Chicha for a refreshing drink.

I hope not.  :-\

Well I'm noticing the aforementioned attenuation issue with my first generation.  I made a 10 gallon batch, one fermenter got S-33 and the other got 1450.  The S-33 finished at 1.014, the 1450 at 1.024.   ???

I kegged a batch yesterday that was made with first gen 1450.  Went from 1.059 to 1.010 in 3 1/2 weeks at 62-63F.  That's about 83% AA.

What syle beer did you make? What mash temp?

Victor Wooten is the man.  He might only be 4'9" (exageration) but man can he thump a bass.  I have seen him solo also and he will do some ridiculous things, like tune down his bass mid song without missing a note, then tune it back up before the song is over.  Talk about hands flying all over the place......Crazy.

He has ultimate and extreme control over his instrument AND it appears as though he does it effortlessly.
