In my opinion Duolingo is not a bad point to start at all. Fooling around with Duolingo I learnt a decent amount of Swedish -yeah, I know... I've wasted my time on a useless language it's my fanatism for Per Gessle what pushed me to do it-; though 5 minutes a day might be a bit too little. At 10 minutes a day -which is not insane either in terms of time- you'd double the pace.
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.
so I learned that Cliff's wife, aka "Mod Betty", put that video for "Keep the Blue Skies" together. Cliff paid her back by writing a theme song for her Retro Roadmap site. The ultimate power pop couple.
Jeff Cooper posted this interview with Glen Burtnik on The Orchestra's FB page. It gets to The Orchestra at about the 18 minute mark. Mostly covers familiar ground, but it's rare to hear Glen sit down and talk for an extended period.
I just finished my first listen to The Weeklings “In Their Own Write” - a live album by Glen Burtnik’s Beatle’s tribute band. It’s terrific! Most songs are co-written by Burtnik/Burger but it has a couple of Lennon & McCartney tracks and a cover of “That thing you do” by Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne).

BSJ: Horacewimp. Was that you who stole Tommy Cruise's car? ::49::

Horacewimp: ……maybe. Every time I heard a helicopter in the last few days I said it was Tom doing his filming. Apparently he liked the Brum chicken tikka masala he ordered an extra portion.

BSJ: Is this a restaurant you visit?

Horacewimp: No…too posh for me

eloneen: Just got my booster shot (high risk of exposure as a teacher)! I hope it doesn't hit me as hard as dose #2 did, but it would still be worth it!
Sept 24, 2021 23:48:17 GMT
eloneen: So happy about my booster shot! Still feeling good. I had expectations of curling up in bed, taking Tylenol, and just pushing my way through some unpleasant side effects. What a nice surprise! I have only very mild soreness at the injection site.

Horacewimp: That’s good to hear eloneen, Mrs Wimp has had a message while we were on holiday regarding booking her booster, I’m somewhat further down the list.

eloneen: Horacewimp I hope her experience is as uneventful as mine!

orioles70: we're spending the weekend on a 1000m mountain in the Blue Ridge in Virginia, Fall has arrived with 70 mph gusts and a 25 degree drop in temps, if we're lucky a tree will blow down and make us stay an extra day
Oct 16, 2021 22:54:26 GMT
Horacewimp: Have a great and safe trip.

eloneen: Enjoy the fall colors! We've said many times that we want to take a "fall colors" trip to the mountains here in NC to take in the breathtaking scenery, but we have mainly gone out that way in spring or summer. Please share photos with us orioles70!

Timeblue: Are you on the trail of the lonesome pine?
Oct 18, 2021 16:14:32 GMT
eloneen: I'm not. I'm in the central part of NC, but there are soooo many pines, so they're not lonesome ...but maybe your question was for orioles70?
