The Daily Cup - Feb. 17th, 2013

Good Morning on this cold brisk winters day!
Sun is shining but it is chilly out.

As you can see Cuppie and Lisa were having a great time last night at the Mayors Gala for the Joy of Art at the Clarington Library. Here Cuppie was hanging out with Mayor Adrian Foster where else but the espresso bar.

Cuppie got to dress up with his bow tie and enjoy the great live music and art on display. More pictures to come of Cuppie at the Gala shortly.Last night Mad Hatters kicked off at the Cafe and I was able to hook up with long time friend and fellow band mate Mike Qurrey from the 90's and we performed a few songs with the acoustic guitars. Look for us next Saturday as well. Thanks to everyone who came out and sang along.

Mystery Lyric:

And did they get you to trade Your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change? And did you exchange A walk on part in the war For a lead role in a cage? (probably the last 3 lines are one of the greatest lyrics ever)

Yesterday's lyric was: Goodbye yellow brick road by Elton John.

Trivia is back tomorrow i will post on Family day.
