Here’s Johnny

I want to start by saying, “I’m sorry.” I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news. The Eden House is going COMPLETELY NON-SMOKING as of January 1, 2014. We tried only smoking on the sundeck and it just ain’t working.  Guests are complaining that it is starting to stink up there and they can’t go up there to sun bath.  Yep, the poor smoker takes the pipe again, so to speak.  I am so […]

Frinzi Is Back In Town

John had a break in engagements between Moscow and Paris and found a little time to come play at The Eden House this next November 1st. Or was it Frankenmuth, Michigan and Madison, Wisconsin, I am confused but I know for sure he will be here on November 1st for Happy Hour. Come early stay late you Parrotheads.   Thanks Mike

Sitting on the Dock of the Bay

I think Otis Redding’s plane went down in the Milwaukee Bay in 1967. If anybody out there knows for sure, please let me know.  I don’t know where this is taking me, but i did want to bring up that we have a guitar for public consumption and as Gina says it’s behind the door in the gift shop.  Guitar Dan (pictured above with blushing bride Betsy) helped us pick out a very fine inexpensive […]

‘It Came From Memphis’

Post by on July 5, 2010

I’ve only passed through Memphis but the book I’m reading makes me want to head that way and soak up some of their culture (is Bar B-Q culture?).  The Book is ‘It Came From Memphis’ by Robert Gordon.  Here are a couple quotes from the book.  Lash LaRue says in a soft voice, ” I have no home in the universe.  I am hunted by the police of Jupiter and the police of Earth.  My […]

Food For Thought

Here are a couple quotes that I would like to share with you. “Fanaticism consist of redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim.” George Santayana, quoted in Esquire “After one look at this planet, any visitor from outer space would say, ‘I want to see the manager’.” William S. Burroughs quoted in Wired “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Albert Einstein quoted in Forbes.com Just a little somthing […]

If It Ain’t One Thing, It’s Another

Will we be called ‘Tar Heel’s now? Just kidding North Carolina. Yes, we’ve had a few tar balls wash up on shore. And we’ve had a couple calls about our Tar Ball Policy and you can imagine where I pulled this one from. After much deliberation here is our policy. If you don’t want to come down due to the tar balls – just give us a call and we’ll put your refund in the […]

Send in your hair!

Post by on May 7, 2010

Now I have heard everything. Send in your tired and weary hair to help clean up the oil slick. That is, for those of you that still have any hair. What I am talking about is collecting HAIR (not scalps) and sending it off to be made into mats to soak up the oil slick. I have heard of using hair cuttings to sprinkle on the garden to keep deer and rabbits away but never […]

Who Is That Masked Man?

Brady continues to grow and I continue to age.  What gives?  I am getting to there….’Brady Update’.  The Bradster is  17  weeks old  and weighs in at a crisp 14.4  pounds.  He can hold himself up on the  side of the bed – wow!  He is such a joy to behold and he is growing  less alarmed by my voice.  I think Elizabeth and Chris have recorded  my voice, distorted it and are using it […]

Eden House spa cam stalked

Rumor has it that Neal Boortz has been stalking the Eden House spa cam.  I have heard from a reliable source that Neal has been checking out the spa cam while on the air.  My source also tells me that Neal is a Libertarian and from where I set, that ain’t all bad.  Though, I’m not sure I want to see northern California succeed from the Union.  But the upper peninsula of Michigan (my home […]

Ira Alert

Lots of folks have been asking about ‘the’ Ira.  He is not in jail, he has not passed away and all other rumors have been greatly exaggerated.  Though he did marry a Methodist – what is the world coming to?  Betsey, Ira’s lovely blushing bride, says that she is a non-practicing Methodist.  I think she is a ‘recovering’ Methodist.  Okay, enough about the Methodist.  As you can see from the picture, Ira is doing quite […]

Kicking Back

There have been lots of inquiries ’bout the hammocks and swings lately – probably a spring thing.  The fine folks at the Hammock Company are offering our guests a 20% discount on all their great stuff.  Check them out and when you find what you need/want type in this secret code EDEN20 for your discount.  Just like the old days when the prize in a box of Cracker Jacks was real. Oh yea, don’t get […]
