Seasons of the Harvest Moon
Many may recall last January when Steve and his girlfriend Danielle made a request for "Harvest Moon" in Brisbane, Australia. And by some extremely wonderfully little miracle, Neil Young performed "Harvest Moon" that night and it brought a tear of joy for many around the world.
And then Liza's wish for "Harvest Moon" was granted in Cologne, Germany.
Gavin's family's wish for "Harvest Moon" fulfilled in Dublin, Ireland.
"Harvest Moon" goes on to get the full treatment (including Larry Cragg on broom) at 2009 Bridge School Benefit Concert.

Officers of the Order of Canada: Neil Young
Established as a fellowship that recognizes the achievement of outstanding merit or distinguished service by Canadians, through life-long contributions in every field of endeavour, and who made a major difference to Canada, as well as made the world better by their actions. Membership is thus accorded to those who exemplify the order's Latin motto, taken from Hebrews 11:16, desiderantes meliorem patriam, meaning "they desire a better country."

Thoughts on Bridge School Benefit Weekend 2009
Just another amazing year for Neil fans. Funny, but that's what we said about 2008, calling it the year of the Blu-Ray & LincVolt. This year we hesitated for a moment on whether this was the Year of Harvest Moon or The Archives. A tough call on a personal level, but -- undoubtedly - 2009 will always be known -- for all of time -- as the Year of the Archives.
And another wonderful year for us here at Thrasher's Wheat where we're celebrating our 13th year on the web, 16 years as a Rustie, and 21 year as a Society member! And in a milestone, the TW Platform sustained the highest traffic load in the site's history. So, thanks everyone for supporting Thrasher's Wheat!
See you in 2010!
Happy New Year!
Be the rain, be the sea change, be the wheat.
