listening to joni: #14: night ride home

Night Ride Home, 1991 Although I mostly enjoyed Joni's previous album, Chalk Mark In a Rainstorm, I still harboured a nagging doubt and vague dislike.Both Chalk Mark (1988) and Dog Eat Dog (1985) didn't feel like Joni to me. I don't mean that they didn't repeat some formula or sound. I hope it's obvious that I don't approach music from that point of view. Those two albums had a cold, flat, pop-synth feel.Re-reading my posts about them, I noticed I wrote almost exclusively about the lyrics. It w...

749 Covid patients in Ontario - This is a crisis?

Ontario's population is approximately 14.5 million, and there are about 500 hospitals scattered across the province.  When lockdown and social distancing measures were introduced back in mid March of this year the reason was clear, our underfunded and overburdened hosptials would not be able to handle the number of Covid patients that computer modeling suggested were going to happen.   The computer modeling was wrong.  There are currently only 749 patients being treated for Covid-19 in this e...

I'm continuing to post photos from our trip to the Dordogne region in April 2006. Back then, I had just begun blogging and I didn't post many of the photos I took there. The pictures I did post were in a smaller format than I use now, so some of those old images are getting a second life. Little house on the prairie this is not. But I don't remember the name or location of the castle. Today is Saturday, which means it's market day. Although our asparagus guy is done with asparagus, he'll still...
