I had a great one-on-one coversation with Martin after the Bowery Ballroom
show in NYC in May '02.  Despite his reticent reputation, he can be quite
chatty and is a very smart and articulate dude.  Most personable when given
enough space to feel comfortable.  It was quite a pleasant surprise to have
the privelege of finding this out.

  The list has been quite lately so I  though I'd de-llurk and stiir the
pot. My daughter (13) is currently visiting Australia and said her one hope
is that she gets  see Peter speak somewhere (ah me thinks we trained her
well!)  That got me thinking. What  has been everbody's  favorite Oils face
to face,.

   Mine was only one, at the Birch Hill Night Club in Oct of 2001. It was
the first night of a three night road tripp to see three Oils shows in a
row, soething I had never done for any other band. After a blistering show
we stood by the bus and were greeted by Mr Rotsey, who was as cordial as can
be,. No rock star posturing and a  what seemed like a genuine interest in a
two was conversation.  I only regret that I never got to meet the rest of
the Oils.

  In another note, how do our Aussie P-Workers feel about Pete's softening
of hard edged views on Pine Gap, Logging (especially in Tazy) etc.

   Hoping to elicit some discussion.

  PS: Saw Paul Kelly in Boston last weekend, the real thing!!!

  PPS: The two Pworkers I met at Neil Finn last night drop me a line off
