When I go to the store, people are everywhere. No more social distancing, and essentially no mask wearing. When I go by or to a restaurant, people are sitting at most or all of the seats. No more social distancing, and no more mask wearing by customers waiting, and wait staff in masks is hit… Continue reading COVID-19 Is Over, Praise Be!
There were several major stories this week. We had the verdict out of Kenosha. The trial of the men who killed Ahmaud Arbery. Another trial involving the planning of the violent white nationalist protest in Virginia. A book came out by one of Trump’s minions. Finally we had the President signing a true infrastructure bill… Continue reading Blurry Focus
It is our last Bands of America as a band parent. Back next week for politics talk.
After talking about Infrastructure Week for years now, and it was happening “next week” for essentially all of the Trump presidency, we finally have it, under the Democrats, with tepid support by Republicans.

Amy Coney Barrett and Samuel Alito give speeches or statements to the press saying the Supreme… Continue reading Just So Frustrated
