Hello Mac nice to see you are making use of the available technology you are indeed a credit to the pan movement firstly your skill as a player, your integrity, honesty, and plesant disposition as an individual are the qualities I admire most but for me I treasure the disscussions we have whenever we meet they are always about issues and ideas never about personalities, God's blessings good health and long life to you my friend (

Hello Mr. McQuilkin,
You are included in my updated compilation of, "400 Q & A on Pan from 1960 to Present. The book now contains 565 Q & A, and 80 pages. I gave a copy to Keith Diaz at the St.Petersburg Florida Carnival. I would like Pan Trinbago to purchase a few copies.
See page #34, Question #113, and page #56, Answer #113.

Mac, it's nice to make your acquaintance once more. Keep up the good work, brother. You have toiled very hard in the vineyard with Desperadoes. God's rjchest blessings to you and the other brothers. Say hello to Tash and Peugeot for me. Tell them they could still get the Carib free, no charge. All the best for 2010.

is fine.Pat Bishop is doing some work with us again and the band is sounding
great as usual.More when we meet.
