I had hoped to have a full-blown Odds & Sods post this week. The fates have conspired against my plans. We’ll have to make do.
My old computer has been ailing for quite some time. I left it at home during our brief Ida exile and when we returned it was at death’s door.

Saturday Classic: One of my favorite anthology albums. Guess who the artist is:
The opening track asks the immortal question: Who’s the crybaby now?
That’s all for this week. The last word goes to Utopia circa 1977.
