"I ain't Gonna Work on Maggie's Farm No More"



Ever had one of those mornings when you wake up and say, "I ain't gonna work on Maggie's Farm no more!" 

This is Richie Havens's version of Bob Dylan's song. I love Mr. Haven's driving 12 string guitar and voice, which he attributes to having all his teeth removed when he was younger.

Buffalo Blacque - A Canadian western



Still from last weekend's Buffalo Blacque photo shoot. 

Will include the finished 80 second trailer with our application to the Alberta Media Fund for development funding. My professional actor son, James Andrew Russell, was the stand-in for this shoot but for the feature we hope country western star Milton Patton will play the lead in our Canadian western. 

Wish us luck.

"A Train for Zyg"


Do you still love trains Zyg? 

It's been five years since she cut you off from me. Whenever I hear a whistle I think of you and the times we played with your train set

.... Love you, Grandfather (A.G.)

Celebrating the day I met the love of my life



Dinner at our favourite restaurant to celebrate the day we met six years ago.

Happy Birthday Joan Baez


You are an inspirational force of nature and an amazing singer/song-writer. I will never forget the day I saw you perform "We Shall Overcome" at an anti-war rally in New York City.
