If you are a Abraham Lincoln devotee (as I am) you will know the pivotal significance of these debates which revolved around the crucial issue of slavery. Wow. What would Lincoln think of what is happening in the U.S. today?

The first debate was in Ottawa, Illinois — NOT Canada. I marked it on the ‘map’ above.

Think. Reflect. Give thanks. Now THAT was A PRESIDENT.

Paddy & Ashley, as many of you know, are also part of “The Brigadoons” — one of our all time favorite groups.

There are 4 videos of this “East Hawkesbury Church” performance on YouTube. This is video 2 and I am featuring it because it has Paddy singing, solo, and that is ALWAYS a treat. He has such a deep, resonant and undiscordant voice. I can listen to Paddy for hours (and sometimes do). Enjoy. This is a treat.

P.S., Paddy also sings on the 3rd video.
