I don't know about anybody else but these days I get sort of emotional when I hear Sheila's intro music.

@Woods I’m just always trying to figure out what the vocalist is trying to express by those fragmentary phrases. ‘Ureshii wa ... ureshii no!’

Now gotta see if these turntables are gonna work with me, and then I can stop shaking :)
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Handy Haversack:

I just about melt, @Woods: It ends the week at that moment. And weeks are hard. It hold all the promise of the weekend in those notes. And then these few hours of Sheila's tunes and confab with the SBBers are a real soul wash for me and Kate. We look forward to it all week.

Weekends can be hard, too, of course. But this is SUCH a relief and such a reminder of and promise of good times with good stuff.

Honestly, everything unclenches.
  S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Geoffrey in Ottawa:

@Toothgrinder Thanks for the kind words. I've been managing well but lost the get go this morning. I'm determined not to let it last.

I had an acquaintance from Djibouti once when we were both exchange students in France. He came across as very modern, even preppy, yet he caused a stir when he said he supported female infant genital mutilation (a custom in that part of Africa which may or may not have a religious foundation in Islam, I’m not sure to be honest). He didn’t seem so cool after that.

I just looked at the playlist and thought I read that Rain In My Heart was written by Chuck Panozzo (of Styx). Maybe I'm drinking my quarantini too fast.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Cmurtha:

@tooth its not an Islamic thing, its regional african thing, its why the prevalence of it is high in those areas and not the "Islamic Word" generally. For example: In the novel "A Grain of Wheat" a christian Kenyan student angers a christian missionary by arguing that circumcision is universal not male only, which all his classmates agree with.

  3:51pm Jett:

I prefer Art & Dotty Todd's version of Chanson D'Amour.
  3:51pm Russt44:

I think there's a recording by Art and Dottie Todd that was a hit in Los Angeles

@Cmurtha thanks for the clarification, I was trying not to assume or cast aspersions. I’m aware it’s not some kind of universal phenomenon.

My problem w/ golf courses is the exceptional ecological damage most utilize to keep up maintainence in the US. There are organic ways to do so, and ways not to use so much water, but most don't.
