There have been times when I thought I was the only person around who really liked "London Town"! If one could just excise the horrible "Morse Moose and the Grey Goose" from it ... Of course, I also like much of "Back To The Egg," so my taste in these things is probably pretty suspect.

My gopod, one other person knows about "London Town"!

I found myself craving "Ram" not long ago, and when I put it on I enjoyed it immensely. A guilty pleasure, I guess.

Oh, no! There's nothing whatsoever to feel guilty about for enjoying "Ram" -- it's a wonderful album!

Heh! I'm reading a little book of Einstein's essays and letters; "The World as I See It". The guy was not just a scientist but possibly the greatest practical philosopher of his age. Brilliant stuff in that slim volume. So, that song from "Ram" that I hadn't recalled in years has been running around my head. "Uncle Albert" likely has nothing to do with Einstein, but it does in my mind today. So, do you folks think "China Cat Sunflower" is a worthwhile diversion ;-)

Posted, with permission from the sender: David, I'm sure you know this already, but I just learned that "I rang a silent Bell" in China cat could refer to a gambling term from last century. While lazing around here, I watch 'Pawn Stars' on History channel. They just reviewed a gambling machine which had a bell imprinted on the top of it, and b/c gambling was illegal...if one won at the game, it was called ringing the silent bell. Episode "Rick's Big Bet" S1 Ep10. I thought that was neat, and it would figure in Hunter's imagery, for he was young at a time that the phrase may have been uttered around him. Thanks! Whit
