I’ve heard that this is the woman whose string of marriages to millionaires inspired the term gold digger. I’m not sure if that’s true, but whether it is or not, look out Chas!

cute band alert

The 1970 line up of The Grateful Dead.

Six months ago, if you told me that I’d be a Dead fan on any level, I’d have thought you were crazy, but a friend of mine suggested that I might like their American Beauty album. I was skeptical, but once I found a used copy of the LP for $5.00, I really had no excuse to not check it out. Turns out he was right, I love it and it’s been in heavy rotation. I hope to get their other 1970 album, Workingman’s Dead, soon. I just hope that it’s good.
