RIP RBG 

There have been any number of paeans for Ruth Bader Ginsburg these last few days. I'm not so arrogant as to suppose I might sing her praises in a way that hasn't already been sung; word of her passing came…

Rain Don't Follow The Plow 

Yep. We had just a hint, the merest whiff of rain here at the House Of Strays last week. Usually by this time of year our monsoon season is in full swing, with temps down in the low 100s and…

Wanna Stay Right Here In My Cocoon 

  Yep. Gonna stay right here and think my unhappy things. Don't want to be no butterfly. Here's the studio version for comparison. Stay well and safe. Wear a mask.
