It's colder than a wedge in Hilo: Low 60s at night, Maybe 75 in the afternoon, if there aren't gusty Trade Winds blowing Line Squalls thru every half hour or so. I know that sounds good to many of you, but we have no heat, some houses have screens only, and a windbreaker is considered a heavy coat to us locals.

I sought solace in ICH, and found it. This article invokes the 70's and 80's and even earlier eras, when this Neocon Nation was populated with Working Class people scrambling to hold families together.

The sound-track consists mostly of complete albums, not out-takes, read it, listen to it and remember...The music includes The Alman Brothers, Woody Guthrie,  X, and singles by the Carter Family, Waylon Jennings, and others.

Should warm me up nicely!
