Life in the mid-50s is totally crap.

Every one of my parents' generation are now dead. Parents, uncles and aunts and their friends. This has been a decade of death.

All my old friends are ageing and growing tired. I have less and less in common with them and I think I have lost all of them now except two. Making new friends is virtually impossible.

My wife and I are heading towards our 60s and she's still my soulmate - that's sweet but sad to watch the slow decay in us both.

As I'm watching old music videos from the 70s on Youtube I remember what it was like to be in the early teens full of enthusiasm and passion for life.

That was 40 years ago.

Back in the day (80s) when we had hope that society could live without racial, social, political, and mental enclaves.

Break those walls!

Well you could always use your experience to make the world a better place... I lost my bestie last year. Cancer. Took a few months off in self pity. Now I feel like fighting again.

Sorry to hear your loss. I had a stepmother succumb to cancer, it wasn't pleasant to see someone decline that way. Fortunately my father's bounced back, remarried and quite happy with life. I went through divorce last year which felt like part of me had died. You just have to remember to appreciate every day... which is easy to forget.

Thank you both for your kind words. The thing I've always liked about our little forum is that I'm talking with humans.

I haven't had even decent pc speakers for 6 months let alone a stereo system which will kill the neighbours. In 5 days though!!!!

I am thinking at the moment I am going to start nice. Some fade into you from mazzy star. Everyone loves that.but I am going to slowly educate the niece and nephew into proper music (sorry just had to move a chair while I type because I want to dance to this sh*t) starting with stiff little fingers.

It looks like the virus might cause school shut downs so we'll start a small school for bubble kiddies in the neighbourhood. I'll teach them databases, cooking and how to dance like a maniac!

Holy crap I  am so disappointed in ear pieces for music. If I can't feel the bass in my chest it becomes some kind of artistic appreciation. Maybe I need to hire someone to just punch me in the chest (correctly) during the song.

Man the next generation of Bialystok kiddies are going to be weird :)

When I tell them my first Stiff little fingers album was a tape I found on the street on morning my paper round which was broken and strewn across a few hundred metres and I collected all that brown tape, rolled it up onto a cassette and played it and was in love. They are going to be so jealous. Sometimes I am surprised at the amazing chances I have had in life!

ahaha I am minimising my musical roots!

Punk to reggae back to punk in one song? Yah we gotcha fam!

Man this is going to be one awesome curriculum! So many kids will be well fed and bruised from dancing while cooking.

Personally I figure fat burns only count if you were trying to be sensible. If you were dancing while tossing the stuff in the frypan it's just what we do.
