Lynyrd Skynyrd's Free Bird is my all time favorite song from my younger days! I love that sone. It sums up all the music I love from that time zone and where I was then.

I was looking for the answer as to why the grass is blue. Took me a few minutes to make the connection to bluegrass. Ha...I have been drinking green tea today but I think I need a cup of coffee.

I'd never heard "My Grass is Blue," but I do love bluegrass. In fact I was at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in San Francisco just a couple of weeks ago.

I'd never heard that term but, I have heard a lot of Bluegrass. My favorite bluegrass album is called "Breathe" by various artists covering DMB! Love it! Cheers~cb
