I read every word of your description of COPD, not having been aware or familiar with it. No need to apologize -- a very personal statement of what the reality of the disease is. So thank you.
Thanks Duke for bringing up Leonard Nimoy's passing. Yesterday as I went through the day it was surprising at how many people commented on his death -- he touched many lives in a way that we all appreciated so much.
Duke - Have also pondered many times your "favorite male vocalist" post from awhile back. I have so many, I never did chime in. Here's the short list:
Joe Cocker (recently died)
Sonny Terry, Brownie McGee ( hope I got that right)
But also Bing Crosby
Nat King Cole
Justin Hayward, Moody Blues
This list is getting way too long
And isn't that guy wonderful who sang the "Take me to Church" song that was also played on the Grammy's? He has a wonderful voice. The video is very sad. Hope we hear more from him.
