I had to quit because of the nerves but I am playing electronic drums. I can't play guitar with my fingers but have been playing a lot of slide.

My son is teaching a lot of music programs on mallet percussion.

The electronic drums have less of an impact on my joints but I have been taking collagen for a year now and my arthritis isn't as bad and i have started drumming again.

The best part is i can write a measure or 5 and just continue it using Logic. So i can just write music instead. I doubt I could last for a whole performance.

Pff, sounds harsh! Glad you were able to pick up drums again.

BF is coming this weekend, so we did a good speed-clean here. Ankle is doing better but not 100%.

I just got into photography to do something different.

Not really giving a F with the way all the governments are acting like Nazi's. the BS vaccine killed my dads 3rd wife day after his 85th BDay.

At least i don't live in Authoritarian Australia or Canada.

My fathers 3rd wife died the day after his 85th birthday. My dad took the shot and gave it to her. She died he didn't. This mass hypnosis is so sad to see. Go listen to Eric Clapton.

Ciao

Eric Clapton is the case that proves the rule. The vaccine does not contain active COVID virus. What happened to him probably shows that heíd be one of the people killed by the virus if he caught it. It just kills me that in the hundred or so years previous how many serious illnesses like polio, tuberculosis and smallpox have been virtually eliminated by vaccines and now all of a sudden, apparently, we donít know what weíre doing.

Bonny, Iím really sorry to hear about your sister.

You may have noticed I blocked the forum and removed above post - I realized that this is not stuff to put out in public about your family, no matter how off-beat.

One of the stressful things about COVID was for my job I had to be completely into all the regulations - if anything happened we were informed about it - and The Netherlands was by far the easiest-going country - in the Netherlands holiday homes were allowed to open to the public since they have separate facilities. Camping sites with shared bathroom facilities had to close, and a lot of them suffered over it.

Will open the forum in a week or two.



In the mean time I have my other leg up - I spilled burning hot tea on my left foot (the one I broke in 2010) and suffered first and second degree burns. It was pretty awkward standing on my right leg, sore foot up high in the sink to cool it - especially since that right leg itself got sprained when I fell two weeks ago.

Because of the awkward place I'm not able to put shoes on yet - wanted to put some Biogaze (sterile compress with oils) on it to protect it from friction and keep it moist. Found the package on the kitchen shelf. Noticed the colours and type set were a bit timid, then noticed the price tag that said F11,95 (guilders) and had a name of a shop that is still a chemist but has been renamed several times since...
After double checking I found the best before date - November 1991.
Last time I remember it got used was when I was in kindergarten, fell hard when I ran to my stepmother and had a huge wound on my knee.

Aaanyway, still happily watching squirrels here, playing Cluedo, on the phone with BF... the regular stuff...

At least there is that. It's basically just me and Julie here most of the time.

We're mostly gluten free, but allow ourselves proper French croissants on Sunday morning and tonight we're going out to a restaurant that supposedly has stellar fish and chips. We'll see. We don't eat fish and chips very often, but I get sick of finding a fish and chip shop that does a really decent job of it for a while and then going down hill. Restaurants are more likely to produce good quality fish and chips, hence the night out tonight, as a treat, but it's more expensive, so we don't do it often.

For some reason I never liked croissants. Weird.

Wrapped up another work week, two days off now. I cancelled Tuesday's turn to go to the office because of my foot (doubt I'm wearing shoes by then).

I'm a bit of a maniac with croissants. They're already buttery, but I like them with extra butter and jam and either a cup of tea or a cup of cocoa. We mainly just buy plain croissants. I prefer them with jam than I do the other fancy sweet ones. We've got a local native French baker, but I don't like the way he makes his croissants amande, he just won't put enough of the frangipane filling. If you've had a variety of French pastries with plenty of frangipane filling, there's no going back.

The fish and chips Saturday night turned out to be pretty good, so we had a good night out.

Enjoy your time off. Is your foot actually getting better?

My foot still qualifies as injured (still can't wear shoes), but the blister is healing well.

Am teaching myself tatting now. After learning music and crochet.

Foot is recovering well. Today I took a shower (other than splashing in the bathtub) for the first time since I got burnt 9 days ago. I also went outside for the first time since then.

Tomorrow's my sister's birthday. It's a bit tricky right now.

A couple of days ago I posted another ensemble demo on YouTube, my arrangement of an old FZ classic with a twist.
