Alfred Reed Bishop and Doris William Butler

The picture above is the very tap root of Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seed. My grandparents shortly after moving to Pekin Indiana from Greensburg KY in 1947 where they purchased the farm that is now Bishop's Homegrown. This picture was taken in Pekin in front of the old co-op next to the old railroad depot, neither of which exist today.

Bill Hicks Last Letterman Performance to finally be televised.

According to the official Bill Hicks Web-Site and his official Myspace page, the final unaired performance of Bill Hicks just months prior to his death from Pancreatic Cancer will air tonight on the the Late Show with David Letterman. Bills mother will also be present for this event. For those who don't know about Bill Hicks, do yourself a favor and check him out. He is a constant source of inspiration to Kim and I and a true free spirit who died far too young. I highly suggest you check this out. If you don't know the history of why this clip never aired back in October of 1993 do a little research on the net.

I hope those of you who know Bill saw this, it was the exact performance that Bill re-enacted at the last filmed show he ever did, same suit and all as shown on the Trio documentary. I'm no fan of Letterman myself and was bored to death the first 10 minuites of the show with his monolouge, but I could tell that Dave legitimately meant what he said to Bill's mother about not airing the clip before and that Bill's mother was genuinely appreciative.
