The big excitement Tuesday was bringing the wheelie bin back from the street. The most relaxing thing was a concert of ten minutes or so by the mockingbird late in the afternoon. It didn't get too hot out, and sitting in the yard listening to the bird was pleasant. There won't be many more such pleasant afternoons before the terrible heat arrives. I'll be sulking in the air conditioned apartment with the blinds closed to keep out the fierce sun's glare.
One other interesting thing happened today. I ran across an article on the Internets about a radio station in Los Angeles which was just barely taking off when I lived there in the early 1980s. It later became the most popular station in the area, then a few years go went into decline, and is now attempting to regain its former position. I haven't kept up with popular music in recent years. I no longer have a radio, and since the fire don't even have MTV, so I don't really know what the kids are listening to these days. But the article had a list of the thirty songs most often played in this station's current rotation, so I decided to check some of them out on YouTube. I must say I do like several, and I'm going to link to one in particular that must be quite recent, as it has a pandemic theme. It's by a duo from Columbus, Ohio, called Twenty One Pilots, and it's called Level of Concern. The kids are alright.
