Yes. This.
The song sprung to mind today, after not hearing it for a long time, after a brief splashing across radio airwaves for a while.
Never more true. Travel, friends, family, meeting and talking with old & new friends, concerts, smiles..... yes, just

Here you go, one just for you, @V. T. Eric Layton

Re: Discussion of Cuban history, around 1958-61 say...

"Context and Perspective" being US/Russia 'cold war', a (failed) CIA-financed "Bay of Pigs" invasion, and how that related to the earlier history of Batista in Cuba, and then Florida exile, then Castro and his nationalization of everything, and exiles like Rubio's family staunchly opposed to Castro and finding a home in the existing Republican base of South Florida (first Miami, then Tampa too).

So these are two snapshots from a presentation I attended with a Cuban Ambassador in 2017, as the change from Obama to Trump was beginning to manifest. These are the bullet items of history past and present, from a Cuban perspective.

And in the end.... daily life in so many places and on so many levels, is just another

Strange Days Indeed!


Or weird scenes inside the gold mine, or what a long, strange trip it's been... All good, fitting, and great lyrics and songs.
But my own day brings me "here" to this song. And it definitely fits. Story below. This wonderful song (from "cool film") first...

## Across the Universe

My day began with a tour of one of Hawaii's largest coffee farms, and lectures by some of the producers, agriculture experts, etc.
Zoom. (What else? I wish I could be in Hawai'i now, in general but also it is the only U.S. state without climbing COVID-19 rates.)

Moving on I spent 1/2 hour in a socially-distanced line outside a big NY food store (Fairway - TJ's was even worse), I suppose a combination of food-buying for next week's big (but restricted) holiday, Thanksgiving. Note: plenty of turkeys were available! Paper goods not so much. (Remember the complete absence of toilet paper? Less so now, and gloves & masks at the cash register.)

Finally home again, wash wash, and a bit of music threading "here", a lot of it 70's/80's and a theme of jukeboxes.

Saturday night - in - and by chance (is anything?) I turned on the TV at the beginning of a 1998 movie, Pleasantville.
Produced by Mr. & Mrs. Andy Samberg, it was an early effort at digitalizing film and was mostly in black & white, with discreet people and things (e.g., flowers), colorized. My take: Like Wizard of Oz, the glory of color was celebrated, and like Yellow Submarine, there were the b&w crowd becoming a mob angry at the cool colored invaders from the future, disturbing normalcy. Add a pinch of Twilight Zone, and this feels like a non-drug-induced "trip". Complete with juke box too (focus of the music thread earlier). Whew.

All that to say, I was in awe at the closing credits where the sound track was The Beatles' Across the Universe (Jai Guru Deva), which was just so perfect. And the singer too. Who was she? I'd been enjoying and riffing on some sultry-voiced Female vocalists like Amy Winehouse and Winona Oak. So, I wanted to know, and buried deep in the credits I got the answer: Fiona Apple!

So here it is, the whole song, and with some key references to that trippy, fun, very irreverent movie. Full circle. Strange day... Enjoy.

Stay Safe!

Because.... it's such a nice idea ("sailin' on a big ship") ... and this is one of my favorite songs authentically from Hawai'i. This laid-back show is recent-ish, but in the 80's the airwaves were ruled by Brother Noland and the Island Bad Boys. This AM hit song - the original (below) was a very tight island-reggae studio recording.

This here is a laid back live performance years later by some Hawaiian music masters - including Brother Noland, center with blue guitar. As the lion sleeps tonight, nearby....

## Checkin welcomes you to Saturday 13 June

Saturday June 13…..
Art imitates life or does life imitate art? What kind of art are you? Or are you a craft? Arts and Crafts was something I liked in school…and made many things of all my life….pasting cut out pictures from catalogs onto empty and cleaned canned salmon cans turning them into pencil/pen holders for the desk was a speciality of mine….each had a theme for the intended recipient…. something that was unique to them….bits of poems and things that get printed on fancy teeshirts also made it on to my cans…. each in itself was a poem or a short story depending on my mood. Now I can’t make those because no more catalogs! The salmon cans were best since they tapered, were smooth, and a lovely shade of olive green with gold metal edges…I also went to the woods and found birch bark and glued that on cans….I called my art found art…the idea was to not buy anything specific to glue on the can( or trays ….when I did trays I found at yard sales) except the glue. So that is part of my craft side.
As for Art, Somedays I feel like The Scream by Edvard Munch….
….other times some some golden picture by Gustav Klimt…..of Dali’s The Persistence of Memory….or some other piece I had seen in a museum or in a book or now online.
I had a collection of posters from the 60s that I took off telephone one poles or walls around San Francisco… so my tastes were alway eclectic….now I had framed prints from Mutts comic strips, some reproductions of advertising posters mostly in French since French is elegant…but many from the UK….all nicely framed ….few are on the walls since my walls are all windows…..OY the problems of the VIEW…Oh well….However I do like art and I know good art is what I like so I am no snob…
If you were art would you be a certain style or genre? What painting or poster makes you smile? Are you an art on the wall person or do the blank walls calm you? or just lazy like me and the art is stacked away since you just moved into your place ( like me 2 years ago! HA!) I have pictures of family but nothing out to see( except the cat that broke my heart) Not big on pictures of people I know…that my be significant I don’t know…so tell us who you are in art…. or as always you can say phssst and phooey and just chat about what you want, just check in so we know you are OK ( we do care you know!) or continue from yesterdays QOTD….

In today's Checkin post @Nora Qudus reminded me of the music that calms me most. It was first played to me by a friend many years ago and I've loved it ever since. But I've never heard it played so beautifully by anyone until today, when I found this version by Hilary Hahn. It's Ralph Vaughn Williams' The Lark Ascending, and it's a classical piece written in 1914, but I don't think you have to like classical music to like this. It's worth watching the video all the way through, but the ending in particular is sublime.

Thor’s Day 11 June ! 2020
Oy is it already the middle of this year? Times flies, no? I have been thinking about my QOTD and all the subjects I can think of are playing hide and seek.
This camel is rocking and has not set down yet. That is a adage from the old country meaning nothing is settled or know yet. Applies to our times well, no? Opening up, second wave, social upheavals, and people carrying on about everything ….nothing is settled we have no idea where all this is going. In the US we have an election looming like the Death Star since with President Loose Cannon anything can happen….the options are between scary and a tiny ray of hope….OY…..yet…..
We all have music we like to listen to when we are blue( I call it wallow music) we all have our happy music too…
I now have neutral music. I can listen to it and say this is nice it evokes no memories, bad or good…De stresses me enough to relax and sleep as well as can be expected under the circumstances. My newest YouTube folder is 10 versions of one piece and 12 of another in a row…..light classical since everything with words evokes something I do not want to deal with. Do you have music that calms and neutralizes the bad /sad mood enough so suicide or mayhem are thwarted?
And this is posting early for Thursday ( it is Wednesday still) And as always you can say phssst and phooey and just chat about what you want, just check in so we know you are OK ( we do care you know!) or continue from yesterdays QOTD ***

## Checkin welcomes you to Tuesday May 19

Tuesday 19 May 2020
When I was young Tuesdays were Red’s Tamales Day, and two for Tuesday on the radio where we would get 2 songs by the same artist in a row all day long….I like Red’s tamales and that is how I make them when I do but in a tea cup or a custard cup and steam them in an oven steamer. Mom had a huge roaster with lid that also was a roasting pan that I could fit a cake rack in and bake them in a steam bath….Soon I got lazy and made it into a big pie in a oblong baking dish….my favorite way was to make a polenta from the cornmeal adding some butter and cheese line the pan with at least 1/2 inch thick reserving the rest for the top. I would then put my chili in the center ( and I had maybe 5 different kinds depending on my mood ) any favorite recipe is good as long as you like it…for being fancy I would add whole canned corn and olives ( I used the broth from the corn to add to the polenta water.then cover the whole thing and bake until the top is browned…I did vegetarian versions too I have several different ones of veg chili. So that is my version of Red’s tamales. When I got to Texas tamales were dry wrapped in a husk and steamed; the masa corner dough was made with water & lard &cornmeal…. my point is regional cooking Texas Mexican is different from California and different from New Mexico. This can also be part of the QOTS since you all live somewhere else and regional food is scared in many places***
As for the 2 songs in a row on the radio nearly every station did it and that was such a nice treat back too many years ago.
Those are my sorta traditions for one of the days of the week…What are a few old childhood traditions that every one knew whether you did them or not…were there a advert that always tried to become a thing like Red’s on Tuesdays? Makes no different what day of the week it was…….Just some local town/ village/ city/ or even if it is just a quirky family thing….Like Sunday dinner at grandmas and grandpas …or the night your mom made the same dish…or what ever is a little thing from your past and child hood that you can recall…game night with the family…or everyone out weeding the garden on Saturday mornings….So it need not be food or radio or TV but can be…this is a time to walk down memory lane and recall something nice….and as always you can continue on any of the previous topics, just say hi I am not dead yet, so we know you are OK because we care…

## Checkin welcomes you to Sunday May 17

Sunday 17 May 2020
Time flies! A good whatever time you are reading this. Yes it is a tad early lots of reasons of no concern to you but to me. But it is nice to get you all in those exotic time zones acknowledged…
Sunday what kind of day are your Sundays?…some worship, some sleep in… I used to like to have a nice breakfast, and read three Sunday News Papers when there were really good newspapers….ah that seems like a life time ago….and if I do the math is was long enough for a person to be born and grow up… OY.
Sunday has now become special for us since it is the only day off Q gets. Breakfast is the same as always since Q is rather in a rut for eating which is OK with me, since I am in the doldrums of cooking …a win for both we still have a nice breakfast though…Is this leading to anything? Yes…how has your eating habits changed since we got transported to this lousy disaster movie? Have you tried cooking different things, cuisines? Do you munch through the day? Keep set meal times? Since I am in and out of depression a lot over these years I have learned to deconstruct food so I can at least eat with out being too bothered to cook ( really it is the clean up and prep that has gotten to me, eating is fine if someone else was cooking…) instead of making a peanut butter sandwich I just use a spoon for the peanut butter and munch the bread along side with a glass of water or if I am really gourmet ….milk (soy milk I like it better) I have also eaten oatmeal in a bowl with milk with out cooking it …yes depression sucks….however I also think about the deconstruction of other foods….I like to make stuffed cabbage, but sometimes the cabbages do not unwind well even after par boiling…. any advice to share for creating meals…do you set the table, eat on the sofa in front of the TV, or at your computer? Is food hard to come by? Are you able to get what you like? There is all manner of “talk” about packing plants closing maybe the crops have not harvesters…so many things with the ripple effect of this, this….pandemic we are in……
And as always you can just wave and say hi, or continue to talk pets or jokes or what ever is on your mind….You let us know you are OK since we do care.

## Checkin welcomes you to Friday May 15
Friday 15 May 2020
Welcome and good what ever time you get to read this!{ Posting early because I am under the weather and need to go to bed sorry}…… It is Friday….today is Fol-de-rol Friday….fun, frivolous, funny, fido, ….and all the stuff like that….We are all in serious, times however we do not need to be stoic today ….. we can whine today but better yet let’s have fun…jokes, memes, trivia, share something fun you do even if it is an odd way you eat or do something ( and you know it is odd)….When I was a child I liked to eat one bite of that, then this, then the other, sometimes in a circle on the plate…was not OCD about clockwise or counter clockwise or triangle ….I would end up with a bite left of everything….for years I kept looking for the best way for folding socks once my sock style ( bulky yarns not the Buster Brown cottons from childhood) out grew my satin sock holder I had since I was 7…I still have it too…more lavender than purple now but if you pull the divider up a bit you will see a $10 bill hidden….Q ties his in a knot if I don’t get to them first…..at this time if my socks are matching it is a fluke……we can be scandalous too…like are you a bookmark person, a dog ear the corner person, proper book mark or whatever is handy….highlighter….underliner, side of the page notation writer? One reason E-readers things are useless for me….so there you have some examples of Fol-de-rol……and as always….just wave say hi, let us know you are OK we do care….or continue yesterdays QOTD…..
yes this went out early to get to those waaaay out there in exotic time zones…

Friendica update script (for git-based installations)

I've been using this script for ~3 months now. I added a few additional steps based on input from @Steffen K9 🐰 not too long ago. I'm sure it's still not perfect, but it seems to be working just fine for me, so I thought I might as well share it on here and possibly help others!

I find this much simpler than manually extracting archives, fixing permissions, overwritting configs and relinking my personal additions to the site with every update. I also include some tips in the file for dealing with branch changes and such (again, mainly thanks to what I learned from @Steffen K9 🐰 ). I know it's overly verbose, but I'm sure that's no surprise to any of you that have chatted with me on here :P

Instructions are in the comments, although it's probably obvious from the script, it's fairly simple. But I want it to be clear to folks who might not be all that familiar with bash/git/system administration. Anyways, here it is:

# Friendica Update Script
# by Adam Gaskins <[email protected]>
# updated 06.17.19
#
# Description: Pull the latest friendica and friendica-addons git changes, then 
# do post-install and maintenance stuff. It is not a great idea to run this 
# script from cron or a systemd timer if you are using the 'develop' or RC 
# branches.
#
# Usage: Save this script somewhere like /usr/local/sbin/friendica_update.sh 
# (but it shouldn't really matter). Then make it executable with something like 
# 'chmod ug+x friendica_update.sh'. Adjust the variables in the 'USER CONFIG' 
# section to match your setup and preferences, and then execute this script by 
# running './usr/local/sbin/friendica_update.sh', or whatever method you prefer. 
# This script is simple and straight forward, but I still added comments for 
# variable explanation, and wherever there wasn't an 'echo' line to explain what 
# was happening, so it should be extremely clear what is going on here!
#
# Tips: These are just a few tips that I found useful, being a relative n00b 
# with git myself. It's just a couple of basic things that one should know how 
# to do, especially if you're going to use a branch other than 'master, like a 
# release candidate (RC) or the 'develop' branch.
#
# To change branches between master, develop, etc. run a command similar 
# to the one below, replacing 'master' with the branch name you wish use. Also, 
# replace 'www-data', if needed, with the user/group that your webserver expects 
# the files to be owned by. The sudo part is very important for git commands 
# that might change or create files, to avoid making the files inaccessible to 
# your webserver!
#   sudo -u www-data -g www-data git checkout master
#   sudo -u www-data -g www-data git checkout develop
#
# To view all available branches on the remote repo run:
#   git branch --list --all --verbose
#
# Sometimes branches are removed on the remote repo, such as those for release 
# candidates that have been merged to master. You may see a message like this: 
#   > Your configuration specifies to merge with the ref 'origin/2019.06-RC' 
#   > from the remote, but no such ref was fetched.
# This means you need to change to another branch, probably 'master' in this 
# case. You'll want to use 'branch' and 'checkout' command shown previously to 
# find and checkout a new branch. You can then do a 'pull' to get your local 
# repo in sync with the remote branch, but add '--prune' this time to remove 
# any old branches that are no longer used!
#   sudo -u www-data -g www-data git fetch --prune
#
# The above commands do NOT need to be run every time, so just do this stuff 
# manually, as needed! like when you wish to switch branches, for example. If 
# you're running an open public node then you probably just want to follow 
# 'master' and never really change branches anyways, but sometimes the RC 
# branches are useful! It all just depends on your confort zone, and how 
# diligently you are keeping an eye on your node.
#
# Oh, and DO NOT FORGET to run these commands in both your main Friendica repo 
# AND the addon/ directory! These are two independent repos and they should be 
# on like branches!
#
# TODO: add logging, error handling, verbosity control
#
# Thanks to Steffen K9 for sharing some tips that helped me write this script!

# Contact me if you have any corrections, concerns, or suggestions! I'm

P.S. The text is much easier to read once copied and pasted in a file, all comments are wrapped at 80 characters. I'm sorry the comments are kind of a mess here - at least on my screen using Frio. I would have thought 80 characts would fit :\

2010-07-19 12:32:12 you: Hi
2010-07-19 12:32:15 co-worker: Hello.
## CO-WORKER WAITS WHILE YOU PHRASE YOUR QUESTION
2010-07-19 12:34:01 you: Iʼm working on [something]and Iʼm trying to do [etc...]
2010-07-19 12:35:21 co-worker: Oh, thatʼs [answer...]

Itʼs as if you called someone on the phone and said "Hi!" and then put them on hold!

Please do this instead:

2010-07-19 12:32:12 you: Hi -- Iʼm working on [something]and Iʼm trying to do [etc...]
2010-07-19 12:33:32 co-worker: [answers question]

Note that you get help minutes sooner, and you donʼt make them wait. Instead, the co-worker can start thinking about your question right away!

Youʼre trying to be polite by not jumping right into the request, like you would do in person or on the phone. But Chat is neither of those things. Typing is much slower than talking. Instead of being polite, you are just making the other person wait for you to phrase your question, which is lost productivity.

The same goes for "Hello -- Are you there?", "Hi Bob -- quick question.", "Do you have a sec ?", "yt?" and "ping". Just ask the question!

If you feel itʼs brusque to simply say "Hi" and ask the question, you can do something like this:

2010-07-19 12:32:12 you: Hi -- if youʼre not busy I was wondering if I could ask a question. Iʼm working on [something]and Iʼm trying to do [etc...]

Additionally, asking your question before getting a reply allows asynchronous communication. If the other party is away, and you leave before they come back, they can still answer your question, instead of just staring at a "Hello" and wondering what they missed.
