  1. Drive from Philly to Newark Airport. Should take about 1.5 hours Fly United Airlines direct from Newark to Bermuda. Have a fantastic trip. Teachers are my heroes. Thank you.
  2. Well, it didn’t win the Oscar, but what a fantastic performance of Husavik (My Hometown) by Molly Sandén and a choir of children from Husavik in their very Icelandic sweaters.
  3. Jealous of everyone going on the Viking cruises to Iceland. Hoping all goes way, and everyone has a fabulous time. Looking forward to the Academy Awards on Sunday, where the nominated original song, Husavik (My Hometown) will be performed. Do you think there will be a shore excursion to Husavik on the Viking cruise? Perhaps a bus trip from the port of Akueyri. Peace, Love, and Support Small Business
  4. I would disagree. Most of us who live in the District are very happy with our Mayor. She is doing a great job, under very difficult circumstances. The problem is we are just not getting enough of the vaccines, and we have NO Senators, and only a congresswoman, with no real voting authority, to advocate for us. Peace, Love, and Support Small Business
  5. In D.C. only about 24% of the population has received at least one dose, and only 12% have been fully vaccinated. We have no FEMA mass vaccination sites. There have been a few positive signs to ramp up vaccinations in very at risk communities through local churches. Peace, Love, and Support Small Business
  6. I’m not a reporter, or pretend to be one, but the news is that not everyone has had equal and easy access to the vaccine, especially in the inner cities. Not VS’ing, just facts. Most people I know, who are eligible, have also gotten or been scheduled for the vaccine. I must admit they are overwhelmingly middle class+, old, and white. Let’s get everyone vaccinated we can, so all of us will be able to start to return to a more normal life. Peace, Love, and Support Small Business.
  7. You probably only know middle class +, white, older people. Here in DC, according to the Washington Post “About 12.2 percent of residents in Ward 3, which include some of the Whitest, wealthiest neighborhoods in the city, were fully vaccinated by last Friday, according to data the city released this week. That’s compared to 5.4 percent and 3.9 percent, respectively, in Wards 7 and 8, the poorest parts of the city and the areas that have some of the highest death rates” Not a political statement. Just the facts.
  8. Yes, he did finally accept, belatedly though, and not in person. Patti Smith belatedly accepted for him. Since a lecture is required to receive the prize, he sent a taped lecture. Prize was worth about $900,000
  9. Higher education is enviable. As the Nobel Prize for Literature winner once wrote; “Don't steal, don't liftTwenty years of schoolin'And they put you on the day shift”
  10. We stayed at the Roommate Hotel Atiana Modern glass enclosed multi story hotel right on the water. Close to train station and riverboat embarkation point. Great water views from our room. Room was modem and comfortable with floor to ceiling windows. We stayed for 3 nights precruise. Great breakfast and very good restaurant for dinner. Staff was extremely helpful with tour information, transportation tips, restaurant recommendations, and very good tips for the best coffee shops for smokes and edibles On embarkation day we walked the 1/4 mile or so right to the riverb
  11. This song was on an old James Taylor album I owned from maybe back in the 70’s i have no idea of the title.
  12. I think I’ve heard it before, but may be way off base. Was it by Kinky Friedman or Robert Earl Keen?
  13. YES! Should be a 50 point bonus answer for knowing the title. Great music trivia question, since so many know the tune but not the title. Hoping its a trivia question on a not too far in the future Viking cruise, or a tune playing when we sail out of a distant port.
  14. No not called “Sail Away” Not even in the title. It was popular enough that I would think most CC’ers have heard it, and perhaps even sung along with the chorus, like me until today, not knowing the song title. I was stumped on the title, but can hear the chorus in my mind. The artist goes by a single name, and the title is hidden in the lyrics.
  15. This one was a suggestion from my next door neighbor. When he mentioned the title, I told him I never heard of it. Then he played it for me and I remembered it well Sail away,sail away, sail away Sail away, sail away, sail away Sail away, sail away, sail away Sail away, sail away, sail away From Bissau to Palau, in the shade of Avalon From Fiji to Tyree and the Isles of Ebony From Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon From Bali to Cali, far beneath the Coral Sea Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up, adieu. Ooh ooh Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up
