Album Trivia #3:  Gotta Get Better To Die

One night last year, I woke up in the dead of night (as often happened around that time) with music, lyrics and a catchy song title swirling around in my head, so…

A Painful Florida "Re-Entry".  Ouch, Go Easy On Me, Dr DeathSantis!

We continue to religiously shelter in place here at home. I'm not going to accept any work until June 1st.  In my opinion, we should all be waiting until…

Face-Melters Need Not Apply
