And so we now have The Strand.
I have to thank (and/or blame) my older brother Rich for the introduction to Roxy Music. He always had far better taste in music that I did, at least when we were growing up. I can remember him referencing "do the Strandsky" back when neither of us could drive. And that was a very long time ago. Anyway, I actually do enjoy Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry's work, although I just wish I could do a better job of pausing it in my head at the moment.
In other music news, I learned yesterday that ABBA has recorded two new songs. In fact, two of my former HR co-workers actually made sure I heard the news. I guess those impromptu renditions of "Dancing Queen" all those years ago made an impression. It makes our summer trip to Sweden (and other Nordic places) all the better.
Lastly, I had a birthday this past week and was treated to many wishes and congratulations. It's a blessing to have folks remember such a thing.
Here's to the start of another trip around the sun.
