Yeah, the who-ha links are a bit dusty, the whole organization is. Mostly cause I am the only guy doing it. Really concentrating on the blog. The problem with the organization is that everybody wants something from it, nobody gives to it. Classic problem I guess. Anyway, Robert is the bomb, love Chris too aka Chub. There isn't a lot to know. I love your work. We get 200-300 visitors a day. We have a gallery show in Marietta GA two months before FolkFest. 


The best thing is to bookmark the blog. I put down a list of shows that are available. If you are just getting started, you might make note of the ones I don't push...they tend to be dogs and when you are getting started, there are a bunch of dogs out there. I don't know where you are going, but, feel free to ask.
