Farewell to the Father of Festivus, Jerry Stiller!
Interesting Historical Fact:
The Hong Kong Flu Pandemic of 1968-69 killed more than a million people worldwide and more than 170,000 Americans.
69 was the Summer of Woodstock, the music festival, the summer of love..
There were no social restrictions that we know of.
We were in the middle of fighting the Vietnam War.
Just something to consider whern the final (accurate) numbers are in.

Something that might interest some, especially in PA.
The Governor of the State of Pennsylvania has until Monday, May 4, 2020, to respond to this landmark case before the U.S. Supreme Court.
I have neither seen nor heard a word about this in the "media". A friend in PA, who is an attorney brought it to my attention this morning.
The main premise of the complaint is about arbitrary taking /shutdowns of businesses in the state, with the governor having the sole decision on what is essential, with no right of appeal for the businesses deemed unessential:
I commissioned this badge and it is set up now so that anyone can give it to anyone.
When we find ourselves in times of trouble, sometimes Beatles music has lifted me up. Maybe it will even help people to be nicer and kinder to each other.
All you Need is and the Beatles no matter who or where you might be.
Spread a little Beatles joy. It worked to lift a whole country up in 1964.

Today marks the beginning of Festivus. Here is how it all began (sort of - according to Seinfeld and Mr. Costanza). Let the airing of grievances commence!
Well, It's Friday and I feel like dancing to The Beatles.
I just Ringo Starr of the Beatles. He's so cute. What a lovely spirit the man has. He's 79 now and he looks 40. What a lovely lovely soul!
My grandson helped me find my way back to this music (by singing it with me in the spring and singing with his band) and I love it a little more every day.
Here Ringo is in his early 20s as a Beatle.
Here he is at 71 or so. Is it me or does he look younger here?
