A Little Sad Bluegrass Div (Tony Rice subsection)

IBMA Hall of Fame guitarist Tony Rice Passed away on Christmas Day.  No cause of death has been announced, but he had been diagnosed with muscle tension dysphonia in 1994 which led to the end of his singing live. Further muscular issues forced him to stop playing - his last performance was in 2013.

This is one of my all-time favorites, Norman Blake's Church Street Blues.

RIP Tony ...... I'll bet Clarance White was there to greet you.

Geography Div (Division subsection)

Well, 2020 will soon be behind us and, hopefully, we'll soon start turning our country around. For anyone who objects to the coverage and name of the red area my only consolation is that you have to live in it to really appreciate how bad it is.

Now you can find out.
