Okay, so you got gypped last week with no song of the week since I haven’t been posting later, so in order to catch up, here it is, almost a week late (that’s right, that means you get another one tomorrow, too). It’s hard to find music videos of Christmas songs here in this festive time of the year, so you’re gonna end up getting a double whammy. Here’s Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s song “Wizards In Winter” along with a Christmas light display that was timed to the music by computer. I’m going to see them in concert in a couple weeks, too. I wish I had the time, money, and skill to do this. One day I hope to do something even half this cool at my own house.
Good riddance to @Enrichmond. I do hope someone assumes stewardship of the East End cemeteries, but I’ve been saying for years something stunk in this organization or just wasn’t quite right. Looks like they’ve dissolved and drained their bank account: https://richmondfreepress.com/news/2022/jun/30/enrichmond-foundations-status-unclear/

So much truth it hurts. Not to mention it’s a rock in the rising stream that is inflation. Hell, even the Dollar Tree is $1.25 now. But the old standby Costco hot dog? Forever a buck fifty and I’m here for it.
