    ^ Very cool of them to do that. I've got a lot of respect for them doing that, and although I haven't heard their stuff yet I will be checking it out now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Latest news on this specific issue:

    My friend's dad passed on at 89 (back in January), leaving behind his very frail wife (a decade his junior) in a wheelchair and bound for admittance to a nursing home immediately following the funeral service for her deceased husband. Last week, on March 18., my buddy called me to tell that his hospitalized mum was to have both of her legs amputated on the very next day because of imminent gangrene, and that due to the friggin' Corona none of her three children (i.e. my friend or his two siblings) would be allowed to visit. Furthermore, she was allergic to agents of narcosis and would consequently have to stay awake during the procedure and hear her own legs being sawed off.

    "- Er, hey - wait a minute!" I told him; "- She's not as reduced by dementia that she couldn't decide for herself to actually abstain from the whole deal?" And indeed he checked with his siblings, who proceeded to confer with their mum. My bud drove those 248 miles and got to spend five hours with his mother before she passed onto the beyond, by which time it was Friday 20th and her 79th birthday.

    Just another -true- Corona anecdote - and an arbitrary perspective on the ruthlessness of life. My buddy got to lose both of his parents in the run of two months.

    ^ That is grim - more evidence, as if any were needed, that the universe doesn't give a damn about us. But you did a good thing there.

    I'm very sorry about your friend's loss, Richard. I hope he's doing okay, or as well as can be expected at least.

    Life on this planet can indeed be ruthless -- sometimes it seems like it's just one trial after another. There are reasons to continue onward though, and to be hopeful even in the face of adversity. Good news may get drowned out by the noise, but it's out there.

    Hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy. Take care of yourself my friend.

    Oh I really like this. The songs sound like they know where they are going rather than flailing about. I'm definitely going to get this. To my ears it sounds so much of the seventies and I mean that in the best possible way. Delightful music.
