Let’s have a song.

Creedence Clearwater’s Who’ll Stop the Rain” – and maybe replace the word rain with pain:

 “Who’ll stop the pain?” (pain from this pandemic)…ha! My heart does go out to those who have lost loved ones or who are in a really bad place. And I hope all nations recover quickly once this ends 

 


Did you Know?

The Hong Kong flu (a.k.a. ’68 flu pandemic) was the pandemic outbreak of 1968 and 1969, which killed millions of people all over the world. It was an “H3N2” flu-virus strain, which evolved from H2N2 -an antigenic shift where “genes from multiple subtypes reassorted to form a new virus” .

The ’68 pandemic killed one to four million, which was less than the 1918–19 flu pandemic’s death toll of almost 50 million deaths. And the death toll for the current Coronavirus is at around 320,000.

 

Not sure how accurate this is – but it sure seems like the social distancing paid off.  

I think most of us are glad that reopening phases have started.

Many of us are starting to feel like Tyrion Lannister when he was cooped up in the Wheelhouse (just kidding).

 

 

And how are you doing – feeling really cooped up? Or are you making it work – getting outside a bit?

  1. Fabulous post again Yvette 🙂 You know that Who’ll Stop the Rain was written about CCR being at Woodstock…..of course you did, it must have been in the display somewhere.

    1. actually – I did not know that – but I knew it had a Woodstock connection – because that was obvious. So I picked it for that reason – and because I think it has a nice and light catchy chorus – but I should check with you on some of these things – and maybe I will with an upcoming post – have a question on a couple pics.

  2. What a cool museum. Yes, please stop the pain. I think the lockdowns have worked and I’m grateful for them. Stay safe and carry on.

    1. thanks for chiming in – I now a few folks that are conspiracy theorists – not to say I don’t jus that way at times – but to say the social distancing was planned or to minimize this just makes me realize people do not always see the bigger picture

      1. Sometimes it’s hard to see the forest for the trees, and others just prefer to see conspiracies through the leaves.

  3. Nice photos, Yvette. I don’t recognise any of the album art – maybe they gave them different sleeves over there from the ones we had? If you like CCR (as do I) are you aware that during lockdown John Fogerty has been posting videos of him playing some of their songs with his daughter and sons? Highly recommended!

    1. Hi Clive – I will try and find one of John Fogerty’s videos – if I can’t – I will be over to get some more details
      and last fall, I went to this evening yoga class and the playlist of music had all these throwback songs. I was telling my husband about the playlist later – because it was such a freshness for a yoga class – and I messed p the Fgerty name and we laughed.. Anyhow, he joined me the following week for the yoga class – especially as I talked up the music. But that week, the dude teaching the class had techno kind of music. So funny to be expecting one genre and get another.
      but it was a really special class with the late 60’s early 70’s songs – some I didn’t know – some I did – and I could imagine Chelle’s and low-waist jeans – etc.

      1. Sounds like you had a lot of fun despite the techno – which is a closed book to me. Give me the 60s and 70s every time! You shouldn’t have any difficulty as long as you spell his name right! They are the first things that come up in YouTube when you search for him. Have fun!

        1. Okay – I will search it – and my hubs was a good sport with the techno music going – but can you imagine how we were expecting one thing and then came the other.
          keep you posted on checking out the videos

  4. The museum looks like a mini Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (which I visited once when we lived in Cleveland.) Woodstock wouldn’t have been my thing at all, rain or no rain.

    How are we doing? Just fine. Did some shopping for my mom this morning and introduced my dad to using the drive through at the bank, not an ATM, but where you put your deposit in a tube and it shoots into the bank. Kind of retro, but fun. Dad always goes into the bank but that’s not happening right now. Enjoying a bit of “cool” weather before it heats up again next week into the hundreds. Yikes!

    1. thanks for sharing your update.
      I wonder if they are spraying down the capsule that goes through the tube – I am sure they are
      and my hubs was at trader joes last week and they actually sprayed his hands with sanitizer – ha –

      and wonder if your dad will want to resume going back in the bank when this is over.

      also, I have not been to the rock and roll hall of fame – but think you are right with some similarities – from the pics I have seen.
      I would have loved to have been at Woodstock – all the days of it and waiting for food to drop from the sky – haha – just no drugs for me – but I would have loved it if it happened in my time – and Janet – the funny thing is that I never even thought about it much until we visited – also – did you know tha we almost didn’t go to visit it – we were staying at a B&B near it – and we were not sure we wanted to go – oh my goodness! It was a short visit but introduced me to the spark connected to this event.
      I interviewed one man – he goes there yearly to honor his brother who passed way.
      And we spoke with a dozen people – who just wanted to talk about Woodstock – or their connection to it.
      there was a wine tasting that day and a 5 k – then tour buses coming and going near the stage site.
      and I suggest everyone add this to their places to visit if they are in PA or NY

      thanks for the comment

  5. I enjoyed that tour of the Woodstock Museum Yvette. More memories from the past – funny you had the Who poster as I thought of the Who this morning as Pete Townsend turned 75 … I feel old when I hear all these singers I listened to back in the 70’s, 80s, etc. are older. Mike Love of the Beach Boys was interviewed this morning about his song written about the pandemic. The slideshow was great as was the song – fitting since we have had endless rain here and a dam broke earlier today about 140 miles from where I live. I remember going for the Hong Kong Flu vaccine somewhere in Detroit as the health departments were the only places that carried the vaccine once it was available – nowadays you could probably go to CVS, Walgreens once it is available (soon hopefully).

    1. Hi Linda- hopefully we can get a vaccine very soon – and preferably one with our mercury – because mercury is always bad for humans – even in small amounts and it pisses me off that the FDA overlooks these dangerous ingredients that are allowed in our shots and medications – which are also made overseas in countries where we really cannot monitor production properly. we are far too trusting and much too ignorant on certain matters. But I digress.

      and happy b-day to Townsend- I only liked handful of The Who songs – but liked the hits that I knew.
      and it is crazy to hear ages of musicians and ages of bands.
      for example, the hubs and I were driving to a grocery store at the end of April – and saw the scorpions “50th anniversary” come across the screen. We could not believe the band started in 1965!

      1. I waver sometimes when I think about the vaccine Yvette – you know they will rush it through and every scientist working on the vaccine around the world wants their country to be #1. Will it be fully vetted? Hard to say. I can’t say I knew about the mercury – wow.

        I didn’t follow the Who as closely as other singers and bands back then. I didn’t follow the Stones so much either. Now their ages are pretty amazing and Mick Jagger is still bouncing around on stage like his younger self.

        On the news entertainment feature they said Cher turned 74 today – I was surprised by that as she seems to have been around much longer than to be 74. She looks good for 74.

  6. I might feel like Tyrion Lannister but am not sure who he is. Interesting post. ( Glad you said the pandemic stats prove quarantine worked rather than that the disease was insignificant and we over reacted.)
