This being Good Friday I was once again toying with the idea of posting “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” from The Life of Brian. However, starting with that song, I began playing the links on youtube. I can’t begin to reconstruct the stream of consciousness that led me to this, but I thought it was great, so Monty Python, as well as any religious reference (snarky or otherwise) will have to wait until next year.
There are probably a thousand versions of the House of the Rising Sun out there, but I think you’d have a hard time finding one better than this version by Odetta.
Speaking of the rising sun, shortly after it rises tomorrow my wife and I will be hitting the road for a weeks vacation to visit our son in DC and my wife’s brother in North Carolina. We just found out that the train we were supposed to take from New London is cancelled, so we have to leave early for New Haven to get a substitute. For the next week or so this blog will probably be non-political. I’ll probably be posting pictures and little else.
