You would think given the isolation the board would be more active, even just to swap stories. Could be lively here as so many experiences among the fans to share. Would be fun.

I have come across black bear and grizzlies in the mountains but a ten foot polar bear! In the Arctic the bear was attempting to get into a house and the owner shot it. I cannot imagine what that would have looked like to the family seeing it through the doorway window of their home at 4:30 in the morning! Truly frightening.

Hope everyone is well and safe.

For fans of Strawbs I captured a humming bird in mid-flight, the graphic used on one of their releases.

Hello Taff, hope you are keeping well. I don't do art but I do take pictures. Would they be considered artwork? I like finding odd things in nature. Two examples below from a hiking trip in the desert in Arozona. My favourite is the Alien Head rock formation. If you click on the Alien Head it turns the right way round.

I binged watched Sunderland 'til I Die. Now I am really depressed when you ad the virus to it. No hope to get out of Division 1 to the Champions League so maybe this season is a blessing, it may not count and a restart in the fall. I was pretty sure Toronto was going to win the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1963 this year. Now we will never know for sure!
How is everyone faring? I know of only one person who contracted it and they came out flying colours at the end of it all.
Hale and Health To All

if you have an iphone, facetime is much easier. You teleconference but I will have to take another peek at the operating system.

Taff is there a chat room equivalent? Live chat would be best and for those of us over here we would no doubt be continually stopping the conversation and asking what it was you just said or could you say that again please but more slowly !

There is free software called Zoom which one can download, install. I have a meeting code and if we can agree on a time and date I can provide the code. I don't know much more than that about the software. I have not yet looked into it, its functionality, but it may be useful. My wife told me about it today as she and some friends from across Canada will be using it to chat tomorrow.

Since the vast majority of us seem to be stuck at home, why don't we do a daily posting of any number of topics.

Local goings-on that may be of interest to those not residing in your area. Some tidbit only to be found where you live.

Favourite Horslips related story or story on how you came to discover for the first time, an artist or band that you came to be a fan of.

An accidental happening which resulted in good fortune coming your way which set you on a new course.

A couple of posts each a week would make this message board a beacon.

anything not related to the current world shite show.

It would be great if there was a media outlet to arrange live chats so we could all join in the conversation in real time. Maybe the lads could chip in as well. Even those of us on this side of the pond could be here earlier in the day if the originating chat was early evening in Ireland and other places in Europe.

Hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy.

Peace.

Someone sniffed this out and sent it to me. It should be required viewing during these difficult times.

Thanks John.

Sounds like a good idea John, will try to do it. Quite easy for self-isolation here the past few days. -18 to-28C with a lot of snow. I fed a few deer out my back door yesterday. When it gets cold and their food is covered in snow they wander through the neighbourhood eating whatever shrubs and tree branches they can.

Muscle Shoals shares in that mystique and the local indigenous peoples have stories about the singing river. Some have said the spirits have helped to make Muschle Shoals Recording Studio's what they are, by imbuing those who work there with that same spirit.

It must be disappointing to see the shows cancelled. Over here they have cancelled pro hockey, pro soccer, pro basketball seasons although soccer might resume in 30 days if the warm weather helps to curb the spread of the virus. Smart move though. Would hate the boys to get sick.
