      They just did a Winter Dance Party up here in Duluth, or are in the process of one, as this was one of the last places they played… I grew up in the late 60’s/70’s and seemed like that music never went away, and was recovered several times, and like Elvis the legacy never dies…….
      Seems like you didn’t live to long if you were a musician, actress, 🙁 or politician in the later 50’s/60’s/70’s….

      On another happier note, happy upcoming birthday Jim…:) (did I get the right Jim)!
