Slow Internet Day
It is late Monday morning as I write this and for hours now, I would have been better off with a Dixie cup and a string than the internet. Still would be. It has been taking up to ten minutes for each and every web page to load – if they ever load at all.
I could check around and see if it's the internet itself or my provider, but my teeth are already on edge and I just want get away from it all. Still, I want you have something here on Tuesday but it needs to be simple and easy to prepare.
Some time ago, our inimitable musicologist, Peter Tibbles, who writes the Sunday Elder Music column, sent me a whole batch of individual, uncategorized musical selections to use one-at-a-time on days when I have something better to do than research and/or write. This is one of those days.
They slipped my mind for a long time but today (Monday), in desperation to finish up the blog for Tuesday so I can get away from the becalmed web, I managed to recall Peter's kindness.
So here, from Peter, is a tune you might recall from you childhood: Dear Hearts and Gentle People from Bing Crosby. Pop music sure was different in those days.
