Well been away awhile, had to set up to work from home, and work hard is all I do. It’s more convenient to be here but without your usual equipment you use at work, it’s a bit uncomfortable. I haven’t read most posts, haven’t played catch-up here yet, think I left off at page 5 or 6.
Can you believe what we are living through? These poor healthcare workers! My goodness! Unreal!

Watching Brian May isolate and give guitar lessons, and Roger Taylor give drum lessons while in isolation has been nice. On YouTube, QueenFanOfficial, plus Brian’s IG. Man did they end this tour and world traveling just in time or what? Pure timing and luck.

Getting the book update prompted me back here. Almost done except for book cover. Very close.
I’ve been watching Run Rudi Run, I commend him for staying the course with his health, but that’s about it. I would purchase his book as well. This confinement in Miami ought to let him finish sooner than later.

Oh well, good to see all is here. I enjoy working from home, thought I would organize my closets, but rolling out of bed, rolling to the computer. No makeup, hair up.....no car, no traffic, and Queen playing in the background.

Good night all.

Good to see you Lsgp! I wondered where you had gotten to. I know you like Queen discussions so I was afraid maybe we were talking too much of the world right now.

I commend all of you who are working from home. I'm sure I would have trouble disciplining myself because I'm fairly easily distracted. I did think staying at home might spur me to do some much needed things around the house. So far I have done NOTHING of consequence. I can't even imagine home schooling all the children. MHZ, does your granddaughter's K teacher have an email where you can reach out to her for help? If not, I think it would be ok to contact the school and ask for some guidance re passwords, etc. Don't look at it as "complaining", rather as seeking assistance. My one DIL is a teacher, so homeschooling comes a bit easier in some ways. But speaking from experience it can be much harder work with your own children as a teacher than working with other peoples' kids. When I was teaching I would often find that my daily quota of patience had been used up at school by the time I needed to help my boys with homework. My best advice is to stick with it as long as you and the child are productive, but walk away when the frustration level is too high. Take a break and come back to it.

I follow both Brian and Roger on Instagram and am really enjoying both of them these last few days. What a creative way to spend time. Last night's post from Brian was wonderful. He's playing Killer Queen, makes a mistake and the look on his face is priceless. I looked at it over and over just to see the look. The only other person I follow on IG is Rudi, and I'm only peeking in at him from time to time. I give him great credit for his fitness routine and the fact that he is sticking to it, but there is only so much Run, Rudi, Run I need to see.

I have been watching Brian and Roger’s stuff on IG too, it is really fun. I haven’t experienced the drums much so I love seeing what Roger does...and how quickly he gets out of breath. I am learning guitar, but now I’m thinking I should do drums so that I can get my aerobic workout at the same time! Brian’s mistake and the look on his face last night were great, good entertainment! I must admit I’ve had my fill of Run Rudi Run too....especially when he is doing it indoors.

I do understand I could reach out to my granddaughter’s teacher, Katyd, I have done that to some extent but I hate to be that clueless grandparent that becomes irritating, lol! Also my competitive self is determined to figure things out without admitting I need help. The real source of the problem is the girl’s mother (divorced from my son) who has all the passwords and info and doesn’t send it with our granddaughter, yet she still expects us to complete the assignments (she refuses to complete the assignments with her kids herself). But that is a whole other story, yikes!

Funny Chevy, we all had that nose-picking kid in our class, lol! I don’t know what fascinates kids about that...funny story though, my niece got married last Memorial Day...and my granddaughters were flower girls. There is a beautiful video of the ceremony...which pans to my youngest granddaughter with her finger up her nose!! I remember I was sitting off to the side motioning crazily for her to cut it out...so funny!




Love is still the answer, take my hand...

MHZ, I didn't mean to come off preach-y about reaching out to the teacher and I apologize if I did. Just figured you might be able to save yourself from some frustration. I would be like you...……….I WILL succeed at this! Your personal situation only makes the whole thing more difficult. I feel for you. MY DIL is very frustrated with my granddaughter's K teacher for the same reasons. K is nothing like it used to be.

Hi All!! Sorry I’ve been MIA.

I can’t wait to really read all the posts thoroughly this weekend. I skimmed.

A few replies so far.

Jo T. Loved the image. Thanks for that!!

Amidds. Hi. :)). I really, really feel for you and relate to your situation and concern for your Mom. I’ve had to set some limits that are being met with some resistance to do all I can to keep my Mom and our space protected. So difficult when you have someone at home who still has to go out. It’s so hard to have to think about using vacation I’m sure. Hopefully he can work something out.

To all. - I echo:
I really feel for all who are so deeply impacted
And I deeply appreciate all that essential workers and everyone including our entertainers are doing.

Sure is a moment of pause, sadness, adjustment, awareness. And deep and daily gratitude.

Thanks so much for Elton concert link. Yay! Am spreading it around. (Have to look back to recall who posted—yes am a little scattered—haha)

Love to all!...more very soon..,

Just checked I seen book update on fb group this is a triumph to success in the making folks.They are at the finish line fixing to cross that means they won.I bet they will be pleased to have this book finished even though it brought great memories and joy.It also probably brought great deadline and stress.I guess that's the price you pay for fame I'm just joking.We can now say we knew those guys.I wasnt worried I had faith it would get completed those two are some perfectionists and hard working fellas I had no doubts.A little bird just told me one sunny day the time was near and here it is how awesome!!!!!

Lsgp, I've been following those weekly podcasts and it has been fun. I'm not a big fan of opera but I really love the Barcelona CD. Freddie's voice is so pure when he's not using the "rock growl" voice. I think my favorite track is La Japonaise.

Hi JB, good to see ‘ya!

Katyd, no worries, I didn’t take your suggestion as preachy! It is really common sense to contact the teacher and I know I should, just that old stubbornness coming out in me. I shall not let a kindergarten assignment get the better of me, lol!

Lsgp, thank you for the links, I watched the first few but handn’t seen the most recent. I am not an opera person either but I really love the Barcelona album. And of course I sing all of Montsy’s parts with Freddie! (Good thing I live in the country and only my dogs suffer through that....)

Hi all! Glad to see someone posted the weekly podcast link ;). I've been sooo busy working from home this week that I've lost track of everything. Not even getting any reading done - I'll be glad when life goes back to normal. Gotta be honest though, I bounce between working and getting a LOT of stuff done around the house that I never seem to have time for. So, kinda my own fault for falling behind.

My heart goes out to all out you trying to home school kids. I remember when my kids were in middle school and it got to be difficult just helping them with homework....new methods, lack of instructions, etc. Made me feel dumb. Then, I felt dumber when they got in h.s. and college - I always felt like their education went a lot deeper than mine! Now I only edit papers when asked. I laugh every time cause I have no idea what the content of the papers are! Especially with my daughter who is working on her Masters in nursing. She'll ask what I think of the content and I always tell her it's like trying to read Chinese for me!

Lsgp, thanks for the links, something to look forward to!

Hope everyone is doing well in these crazy times!

@Chevyman

@Katydy5

There are a lot of good history books and authors, but unfortunately, one cannot read all of them. The novel "The Gilded Age" gives an insight, into the times after Civil War, although sometimes in in an ironic and satirical way. The last time I read a book on American history was years ago,, "American Genesis: A Century of Invention and Technological Enthusiasm, 1870–1970" by Thomas P. Hughes. I found it interesting. It starts with the lone inventors, mostly laymen tinkering in their workshops, and progresses to the huge industrial undertakings like the Manhattan Project involving thousands of specialists and new levels of management and organization.

Steven, Its just the environment I was subjected too as a young child till the age of 8.We were family I maybe had a aunt of no blood relation but she was in the club on down the line her folks were two .My moms parents who I eventually went to live with were Irish and catholic so they really hated the fact she picked up with a Hells Angels.They were some good times I remember my dad teaching me to play the guaitar .There was always people around for sure .Loyalty got you protection snitches got you stitches lol.So yes it was a huge adjustment living with catholic grandparents compared to carefree gypsies lol.I adore Bob Dylan I love the song tambourine Man it speaks to me in many ways.I like to read about anything on Manson he actually was trying to get a record deal with the Beach Boys and they turned him down.The man could play and sing though beautifully.Iheard that's what lead to his killing spree Sharon Tate bought the house one of the Beach Boys was living in and Charlie Manson thought he still lived there.

Hi Steven, nice to see you here on Friendly Chat!! Some people may not realize that the conversation you are continuing is actually one from the book thread that some of us participate in. I'm going to address your comment to me back over there. I do hope you'll come around here too though! We enjoy seeing old friends. I'd be very interested to hear what life is like in Germany right now.

@Katydy5

My understanding was that the book thread is about "As It Began" and other books on Queen. Should I reply to your post on the Civil War book here or over there?
