Man, I just got back from the Marine Corps League meeting and it looks like I have a Christmas parade. Tommorrow morning I have a dedication ceremony for an aircrew that went down and then at the end of the month another ceremony for 11 of the 10th MNT Soldiers that didn't make it back. Always an ho...

It would be nice if between the Base Cmdrs, SAMS, VFW, AMVETS, Legion, etc... if we could get a fund together and some coordination to have a sponsored and designated military person on each post to pipe. One of the ceremonies on FT Drum had a boom box recording of Amazing Grace and it just sounded ...

Respectfully Nice. Been doin alot of them myself. That's why it was nice when 6-6 Cav ask me to pipe thier Spur Ride, it was a nice change to play Garry Owen rather than Amazing Grace. I retire in January, so I will be doing more volunteer work. It's ashame that every Division doesn't have a piper. ...

Road March 6-6 CAV

I just piped for 6-6 Cavs Spur ride 2 weeks ago. Made a big time professional mistake too. 5 min before the road march I pulled out my chanter reed to take a look and cracked it, so I had to run and get my other pipes out of the car. If I do a show I always have a two sets of pipes and back up reeds...

There's no substitute for Canntaireachd. The feeling it gives to the performance it creates has no substitute. I like some of the new stuff out there. We have to encourage both. Having roots in Canntaireach is a skill that all pipers should have. Just like learning cane reeds before going on with sy...

I've been quite good lately(drinking). I've been cutting back since I'm retiring from the service in a couple of months. Spend more time hiking with my dogs these days than inside the pubs. But that might change when the retirement checks hit the bank.

Sounds nice, but were you trying to make up for something you did or didn't do. Been there before, got the T-shirt.

I had a little problem with one of my new sets as well, a couple years ago, with the caps coming off. Went to the hardware store and researched some adhesives. You have to be careful not to use something that will do damage, or possibly expand too much. I was in Christenfeld, Denmark before, lovely ...

Three of my favorite things in life. Mountains, snow, and pipes. Just add beer and I know I would be in heaven.

Nice. It's hard to get the real feel of it when it's not actual pipes, and that is the nature of the instrument. The spirit and emotion is lost in technology. Would be nice to hear your personal translation. I think a lot is being lost in politics. It is nice to hear a lone piper playing for himself...
