05/04/20 – Coronavirus Tip For The Fellows

CURRENT EVENTS

BOOK OF THE WEEK

1984

By George Orwell

It has been years since I’ve read this book.

1984 is George Orwell’s haunting prophesy of the future, which has held multiple generations of readers spellbound in its chilling and terrifying vision of life under a totalitarian regime. Powerful and unforgettable, this still-relevant novel explores the obliteration of truth, individuality and liberty in a world where the ruling power seeks to control everything, from information to thought and memory.(Source: Amazon)

MOVIE, PLAY OR TV SHOW OF THE WEEK

Perceptions

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

I was fortunate to have seen Little Richard twice in my life, once when we were both young and once when we were both old.

During this time of social distancing, I thought his song was particularly appropriate .

Keep A-Knockin (1957)

By Little Richard

Before the Coronavirus

After the Coronavirus

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK

Greg Anderson

Greg Anderson left us Wednesday, April 29. after a month-long battle with the Coronavirus and other complications.

I think he was one of the most noble and courageous persons I ever had the privilege of knowing. 

I took the above photo of Greg at one of my Happy Hour parties, when Ed (back to camera) was telling a joke to Greg and another one of my friends

  1. Little Richard was the highlight of my day, worth getting out of bed for. As for meetings discussing conference locations ad infinitum, I’m with the guy who said, hit me in the head with a sledgehammer.
