Savannah: Deepest condolences on the loss of your friend.

Keep your memories alive, and your friend will remain with you. Think of the joyous times you spent together and know that your own life is richer because of those memories, Bless you in your sadness, and know that joy will return.

I have been struggling with the death of my dog just over a year ago. I found the following quote from Dan Savage very heartening:

Grief isn’t something we “deal with” and then we’re done. It’s something we carry with us. And in my experience time doesn’t lighten the load. Still, the longer we walk with it, the stronger we get, and the lighter it feels.
FUCK YOU, I'M A WIZARD. FUCK YOU, I'M A SHARK.

I lost my girl dog Olivia the second Monday of Sept., 1999. Still makes me cry.

RIP Charlie Daniels, one of my oft-quoted and beloved singer-songwriters, who established by funding a new veterans educational center at Middle Tennessee State University and wrote such classics of the country/southern rock genre as "Long-haired Country Boy", "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" and "Still in Saigon", performing these hits well into his 70s touring every year. He established the Volunteer Jam, a yearly festival that began long before Lollapalooza.

Thanks,Charlie, for the memories.

RIP Ennio Morricone, a legend in composition and conducting made even more famous by the use of his compositions by Italian director Sergio Leone in what came to be known as 'spaghetti westerns'.

Sergio Leone's masterwork, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly includes this never-to-be-forgotten composition, here performed by the Danish National Symphony. The film, set in Civil War New Mexico, includes Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach as the good, the bad, and the ugly. Historically accurate, the film's setting occurs at the time of Confererate General Sibley's invasion of New Mexico and Arizona in 1862. I invite you to close your eyes and listen to the piece while you imagine the smell of burning gunpowder and mesquite, feel the warmth of the hot New Mexico sun, and you may feel shivers running up your spine as I did.



A second take on this compositon is provided with the typical British tongue-in-cheek approach by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain here:



If you want an American Twain-esque humorous performance you can try the American Spaghetti Western Orchestra, here played at the Royal Albert Music Hall in London (performancxe of this piece at 4:30):



Morricone died at the age of 91, from complications of a fall.

He done good.

Grazie, Maestro Morricone!

JH has dozens upon dozens of reported errors they haven't addressed yet (like not counting all of NYS). Other sources have U.S. Deaths at 136K+ (24% of global). Still with at least 1.6 million active cases (36% of global), unresolved - how many will die.
Globally, 559K+ Deaths.

Brother in law, passed away at home last night. My sister was able to say goodbye. It was a short battle with cancer, and I was releaved, he didn't suffer too long. He was a bulldozer, and a good man, from the first day I met him, to his last day. He will be missed, but I'm sure he'll be in a crazy heaven, specific to him.
