Neil Peart MySpace Bulletins

Neil has been sending out quite a few bulletins lately. You have to be a MySpace member and a "friend" of Neil's (there are 16,928 of them as of today!) to receive these bulletins. But I will periodically post them here, too. (If you're interested, my MySpace profile is at the following URL: Feel free to send me a friend request.)

I love this free Monday - more questions answered....

I moderate this site as I can, however, my tour Riding Partner and Director of Security for RUSH for eight years (you can read all about in Roadshow) helps me moderate this site.
So yes - sometimes me, Sometimes Michael AKA SPQR.
