@Sevencasper @SessionDrummer Thanks to both of you. Finances will be tight (my ex-wife got the house and retirement account in the divorce), but I’ve learned how to live on a limited budget. Heck, mixing juice saves me a ton of money every month. Plus it is more fun.

Fun for tonight is my second photography class in 25 minutes. I love learning new things and new skills. Also, taking pics is another way for me to be creative. Playing gigs is fun, but I can take pics anywhere, anytime.

Getting vape mail from other countries, if you’re worried about it getting stopped at customs, get the shipper to label it “Used Dildo” … They’ll leave your shit alone.

Had a blast at a drumming circle last night. My first time with this group of folks. During the break (after about an hour) the main person said she was worried that I would be someone who would “take over” or “over play” when I showed up with my large Remo Djembe. But she said that after about 20 minutes, she realized I was just “one of the gang”. I thanked her for letting me know and that as a percussionist (and vocalist), I was taught to be an ensemble player whose job it is to make the folks around me sound better. We had a great time and I met some fine folks. We’ll do it again at the Winter Solstice.

I’ve seldom done any drum circling @Cary1 but sounds good that you proved the “main person” that you would indeed “Serve the Song” as it were.

@SessionDrummer It is a blast. Everyone has hand drums and other hand percussion stuff (and foot bells and foot tambourine for me). Folks took turns setting the pace and rhythm and everyone joined in. It morphs and changes as it progresses. I am looking forward to doing it again.

Except the world recognizes natural immunity. We don’t. Because everything in this country has to go through the pharmaceutical companies. Natural immunity is the best kind of immunity. We shouldn’t fire people who have natural immunity because they don’t get the vaccine. We should hire them! Yes? …

I saw it today, people outside alone, walking with a mask. It’s so stupid. It’s an amulet. A charm people wear to ward away evil spirits. It means nothing. Can’t we get people to understand the facts more?

Listen to this. For unvaccinated hospitalization risk - unvaccinated. 41% of Democrats thought it was over 50%… Hospitalization rate for the vaccinated is actually 0.01% and the rate for the unvaccinated is 0.89%. So in both cases, the correct answer is less than 1%. They thought it was over 50%. How do people, especially of one party, get such a bad idea? Where did that come from? …

We’ve got to get back to life. Look at sporting events. All three sports are playing now including basketball, which is inside. Nobody seems to be having superspreader events. I mean, you know, it was great. It was so much fun having a pandemic. But, you know, buh-bye.
