"Get Posting! Do it in memory of Amos, at the very least!"

Really? I know we all have selective memories but I vividly recall the last of Amos posts. He deeply regretted the time he spent posting so much to the exclusion of time spent with family and priorities.
When time is short we all could do bargaining such as wishing 30,000+ hours back to use differently, but to attribute it to "do it to the memory of...", it should at least be a true memory.
There is nothing wrong with taking a word from the wise and managing time more wisely.
Besides, the posts of the past have virtually disappeared for reasons I do not fully understand.

There are some REALLY funny things in literature, from Europe,
about St. Martin's feast time.
Like Friedrich Rückert's poem ...
I'm mightily tempted to post it ...

"O heiliger Martine ... "

it's a hilarious description of getting the parish feast going,
right down to the goose for dinner,
the pouring rain outside,
and how
'Saint Catherine is coming next,
so put the fiddles away already.'

WHEW! Don't go in there man. Why what happened? The last guy just took a ballot dump.

to the tune
You've got to accentuate the positive

We're all testing Delta positive
Few are testing negative
With vaccine you are going to live
Don't mess with Mister Donald Trump
You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemicmonium
Liable to walk upon the scene
To illustrate his last remark
Bob in ICU, Gale in ambulance
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark
Man, they said we better, accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No, do not mess with Mister No Vaccine
Do you hear me?
Oh, listen to me children and-a you will hear
About the eliminatin' of the negative
And the accent on the positive
And gather 'round me children if you're willin'
And sit tight while I start reviewin'
The attitude of doin' right
You've gotta accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Anti vaccine memes
You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom, down to the minimum
Otherwise pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene
To illustrate my last remark
Bob in ICU, Gale in ambulance
What did they say
Say when everything looked so dark
Man, they said we better accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No, don't mess with Mister No Vaccine

Jacques Loussier interprets Bach in straight forward jazz themes. I have another way to interpret Bach by progressively extracting notes from the quick runs to resolve on the longer chords. For example using the first violin solo sonata

The resulting etheral chord changes are far different than the linear violin version. The melting change from one chord to the next can be done only on keyboard or ensemble and is fun and cosmic.

Don, going back a couple of posts, I've been scanning slides from an artists' collection at a local museum, and the two artists whose slides I'm scanning were interested in painting all sorts of things. There was a folder with a set of composers' portraits, and having grown up with classical music, I recognized them so added the names to the metadata. So, not BS, just interesting overlap. They made reference to the most popular images when they created their paintings of these artists, and added some human 3D characteristics. For example, it's clear that George Fridric Handel is probably wearing a wig in the historic photos, but in their portrait, the forehead shadow at the hairline is such that you can see a more human person who happens to be wearing a wig.

Thanks I need a lot of help as a fractured genius as I believe most of us are. The parts I am missing, like being unable to speak another language and coding are filled in by others. I even married so that I could have a translator for my empty parts.

There is a portrait of Bach holding a fugue fragment as he wryly grins.
It demonstrates a palindromic harmony that is non linear. I see time as non linear and shapes in hyperspace and other things easier than most people while I am an idiot in some other disciplines.
For those not on friendly terms with diversity will find all this unlikely but it has always been this way. Such is the nature of unique dyslexia.

I fixed your Fran link a few posts down (it was missing the last digit.)

Bird die-off has been a problem since last year and some is attributed to people at home looking for distraction so they put out bird feeders and bird baths that weren't properly cleaned between refills.

I read about biologists who work out in the huge fields of power-generating windmills and they look for birds and bats killed by the blades. They have dogs finding and retrieving the carcasses in the fields that are planted all around the windmills. The nature of the dogs need to be particularly playful. My Cookie would be good at that job.

Cliff driving is putting stress on many State resources to recover and treat the victims of cliff driving. Cliff driving advocates say they prefer dangerous freedoms to safe mandates. The Mayor of Withering View Georgia says he will nix any moves to ban cliff driving but at the same time do not expect any ambulance or hospital care.
Now that many children are perishing inside SUV's that take the 'plunge' it is surprising that the fatality numbers are still going up.
The anti cliff driving folks blame a lack of common sense that drives people to kill ones self and others. Bill Barnone, a cliff driver survivor and internet influencer says on Facebook "You can die from safe driving. There is nothing like driving over a cliff."

Palindrome, yes, but it's not at all Prime. However, 2224 is the gene that encodes an enzyme that catalyzes the production of geranyl pyrophosphate and farnesyl pyrophosphate from isopentenyl pyrophosphate and dimethylallyl pyrophosphate. The resulting product, farnesyl pyrophosphate, is a key intermediate in cholesterol and sterol biosynthesis, a substrate for protein farnesylation and geranylgeranylation, and a ligand or agonist for certain hormone receptors and growth receptors. Drugs that inhibit this enzyme prevent the post-translational modifications of small GTPases and have been used to treat diseases related to bone resorption. Multiple pseudogenes have been found on chromosomes 1, 7, 14, 15, 21 and X. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

WHEN the 'arf-made recruity goes out to the East
'E acts like a babe an' 'e drinks like a beast,
An' 'e wonders because 'e is frequent deceased
Ere 'e's fit for to serve as a soldier.
Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
So-oldier of the Queen!

Now all you recruities what's drafted to-day,
You shut up your rag-box an' 'ark to my lay,
An' I'll sing you a soldier as far as I may:
A soldier what's fit for a soldier.
Fit, fit, fit for a soldier . . .

First mind you steer clear o' the grog-sellers' huts,
For they sell you Fixed Bay'nets that rots out your guts -
Ay, drink that 'ud eat the live steel from your butts -
An' it's bad for the young British soldier.
Bad, bad, bad for the soldier . . .

When the cholera comes - as it will past a doubt -
Keep out of the wet and don't go on the shout,
For the sickness gets in as the liquor dies out,
An' it crumples the young British soldier.
Crum-, crum-, crumples the soldier . . .

But the worst o' your foes is the sun over'ead:
You must wear your 'elmet for all that is said:
If 'e finds you uncovered 'e'll knock you down dead,
An' you'll die like a fool of a soldier.
Fool, fool, fool of a soldier . . .

If you're cast for fatigue by a sergeant unkind,
Don't grouse like a woman nor crack on nor blind;
Be handy and civil, and then you will find
That it's beer for the young British soldier.
Beer, beer, beer for the soldier . . .

Now, if you must marry, take care she is old -
A troop-sergeant's widow's the nicest I'm told,
For beauty won't help if your rations is cold,
Nor love ain't enough for a soldier.
'Nough, 'nough, 'nough for a soldier . . .

If the wife should go wrong with a comrade, be loath
To shoot when you catch 'em - you'll swing, on my oath! -
Make 'im take 'er and keep 'er: that's Hell for them both,
An' you're shut o' the curse of a soldier.
Curse, curse, curse of a soldier . . .

When first under fire an' you're wishful to duck,
Don't look nor take 'eed at the man that is struck,
Be thankful you're livin', and trust to your luck
And march to your front like a soldier.
Front, front, front like a soldier . . .

When 'arf of your bullets fly wide in the ditch,
Don't call your Martini a cross-eyed old bitch;
She's human as you are - you treat her as sich,
An' she'll fight for the young British soldier.
Fight, fight, fight for the soldier . . .

When shakin' their bustles like ladies so fine,
The guns o' the enemy wheel into line,
Shoot low at the limbers an' don't mind the shine,
For noise never startles the soldier.
Start-, start-, startles the soldier . . .

If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white,
Remember it's ruin to run from a fight:
So take open order, lie down, and sit tight,
And wait for supports like a soldier.
Wait, wait, wait like a soldier . . .

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
So-oldier of the Queen!
