"You're on to something Rosi. The barns are peaceful. Snow on the sand this a.m at the mouth of the river. Watching it last night was exciting. Quite different. The pair of Bald Eagles who roost nearby hovered overhead. Scenic. "

"Good comment stream here. That's astonishing Johnny to read the 35% figure of numbskulls who simply by choice will not allow themselves to hear anything negative about POTUS. It's much scarier than tornadoes, earthquakes and tsunamis."

"FM, I hope your optimism, as thinly spread as it understandably is at this point will prevail. The "base" this POTUS relies on is an inverted pyramid, teetering and possibly ready to topple. But that takes a leap of faith to believe, a…"

"ABG is collectively right. The collective deep sleep....may not end in time. I made the same point, and it’s the biggest worry. The midterms will give us a pretty good indication. "

Happy 2018

I'm busy wrapping up business for the year, packing and deciding on what to keep of a lifetime accumulation of stuff and where to put a dozen guitars, and other stringed instruments. Where do the big vinyl collection and the books go? Too many books.

Antiques, the good furniture, my slate pool table etc.etc.

Wait....I know where.

At the new house.

I'll drop in and say hello next month.

Be well, healthy and kind to yourself and neighbors.
