I hope this fits here. Though the context is the virus, I find what the musicians are doing is truly uplifting.

Love the now Colonel Tom story Niteshift...what a great hero for our times...the money he raised, his video, and words of assurance that we WILL get past it and that tomorrow would be better make him a legend in these times


And Donna, this absolutely fits...thank you for sharing that....

Can't claim authorship. A CPA friend received this from a Floriday lawyer buddy of his...


SELF ISOLATION QUARANTINE DIARY

Day 1 - I can do this! Got enough food and wine to last a month!

Day 2- Opening my 8th bottle of wine. I fear wine supplies might not last.

Day 3- Strawberries: some have 210 seeds, some have 235 seeds. Who knew?

Day 4- 8:00pm. Removed my Day pajamas and put on my night pajamas

Day 5- Today, I tried to make Hand Sanitizer. It came out as Jello Shots!!

Day 6- I get to take out the garbage. Iím so excited, I canít decide what to wear.

Day 7- laughing way too much at my own jokes!

Day 8- Went to a new restaurant called ďThe KitchenĒ. You have to gather all the ingredients and make your own meal. I have no clue how this place is still in business.

Day9- I put liquor bottles in every room. Tonight, Iím getting all dressed up and going bar hopping.

Day 10- Struck up a conversation with a spider today. Seems nice. Heís a Web Designer.

Day 11- Isolation is hard. I swear the fridge just said, ď what the hell do you want now?Ē

Day 12 - I realized why dogs get so excited about something moving outside, going for walks or car rides. I think I just barked at a squirrel.

Day 13- if you keep a glass of wine in each hand, you canít accidentally touch your face.

Day 14 - watched the birds fight over a worm. The Cardinals led the Blue Jays 3-1.

Day 15- Anybody else feel like theyíve cooked dinner about 395 times this month??

Raleigh, ya'll
Hey All! Just dropping in because I felt that I should. A little over 3 years ago, on my Facebook page, we started what ended up being called "Friday Music Fun Day"...FMFD for short.....Where we would gather and swap musical links, built around a "Theme" every Friday as a way of dropping our every-day cares, if only for a day.

It developed, in a very organic way, and there are several JPF Members, all the way from Louisiana to the Netherlands who chime in.

BOTTOM LINE: The Gang has taken the "Sheltering in Place" very seriously, and so, for the last month or so, we've been doing FMFD every single day!...Swapping songs and just goofing around with each other.

Someone suggested that it would be good if there was a place where all of each day's songs could be gathered....So I learned how to create a YouTube Channel...

You don't need to be on FB, or even "subscribe"....All ya hafta do is click on the link that I'm going to add....Since the John's wanted something positive...Here ya go!

Satchel was right. Something is gaining on me.

Humm,
Well, lessee see here. Hank Williams recorded a song Entitled: Everything's Ok. They made a Movie Entitled: THE MIRACLE WORKER. Positive enough for you?
However Billy Edd Wheeler recorded a song Entitled: Ode to the Little Brown Shack and Johnny Paycheck recorded a song Entitled: TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT. So take your pick.
