NOTE: for those following on the somehow self-standing blog that appears when I post to http://www.yearoftheflood.com — it’s because I didn’t understand some button or other. Think I’ve got it now, and after this one, the blog entries will be only on http://www.yearoftheflood.com, which also has the tour schedule (click The Tour, scroll down). This will save confusion, I hope.
From Toronto: after rehearsing in the dining room with the Toronto team yesterday — they sound great! — I’m about to head out to Ottawa and Kingston, then back to Toronto for Thursday — I’m behind in my writeups (shame!) but will catch up with Bristol on the train, I hope. There was so much to write about in that city — I’m dividing it into two — Green Initiatives and The Event.
From Ottawa, I’ll write about arts funding, with a spotlight on the recent BC annihilation beheadings. Then comes Kingston, where many exceptional things await!
Meanwhile, here is the PBS website, with the Jeff Brown interview: http://www.pbs.org/newshour.
