    Hey, what can I say? Do you mean the link to The People’s Pharmacy?

    adInteresting. Algorithms provide much of the ad choices of a page. My page is not too cluttered and the ad is for Kohl’s.

  • From David on day after surgery and wretched strangers

    So well things have gone and continue to go well with you Dad. Thinking about you often (every night in my prayers). Will have to find time in the near future to chat again. Love you Dad

    Yes!

    Yes! Happy dance!!!!!!

  • From rhonda on book talk

    Bewilderment- that’s brilliant, and does seem very true. As opposed to assuming we can see where this is going, add and the resulting hysteria all around us, bewilderment sound pretty refreshing!

  • From Eliz on nice to be asked and Tchaikovsky, Handel, Clara Schumann

    wasn’t it a bit more literal for the Pullmans who were using tokens issued by their employer to buy things from stores owned by their employer, etc?

    • From jupiterj on nice to be asked and Tchaikovsky, Handel, Clara Schumann

      Insane stuff, that’s for sure.

  • From Cindy Cosway on going for a day off

    For what it’s worth, I think Jody might be off of FB. I’ve no idea if it’s from his own choosing or due to being censored. I haven’t asked.

    • From jupiterj on going for a day off

      Wow. It never occurred to me that he might have been kicked off. I was skeptical that he would withdraw wince he seems to adamant in his comments. Thanks for the info. I will miss his comments since he is someone whose point of view is so different form mine and it helps me temper my own confirmation bias.

      Love from Uncle Steve

  • From David J on too many words about a couple of hymns

    I have been off and on interacted with Hillsdale for their “free” courses on things I am interested in like litterateur, History and of coarse public policy/politics/constitution/government (actually learning new things and brushing up on something’s from when I was working on the doctorate). Surprisingly they seem to be pretty objective given the conservative rightness of the college. Also, free is good for the most part as long as I can shift through the bullshit. 😬

      Free is good. Love from Dad

  • From Jordan on in between

    Hey, I’m a local composer and I’d love to see your music!

    • From jupiterj on in between

      True that. Although you and I have done quite a bit of collaboration we haven’t talked that much about our compositional goals and process. Of course, we have improvised together a lot too and that’s related I think. But I will definitely take you up on showing you work when i get something more together on this organ piece I’m working on. Thanks! And thanks for reading the blog!

      • From Jordan on in between

        Very good! Looking forward to it! I can’t wait to see it!

  • From Rhonda Edgington on composing and picking some organ music

    One other idea is to email Robin Dinda himself. I’m sure you can find his contact info (he’s probably about your age, somehow I think my parents knew him slightly…)
    and it could be he’d be happy to get you copies of those pages, and perhaps more responsive than a publisher. Just an idea…

    • From jupiterj on composing and picking some organ music

      Good idea! I did this. We’ll see if he responds. Thank you!

  • From Rhonda Edgington on compositional therapy and anxiety

    Ohmigosh, I’m sorry, but that dream is hilarious. I have concert-anxiety dreams too, but this one has some great details. Like your car and phone being in pieces and unusable.
    And especially the legal action part!
    I’m sure it was unpleasant at the time, but perhaps you can take comfort in the fact that I read it to Mark and we both enjoyed a chuckle?

    • From jupiterj on compositional therapy and anxiety

      Always glad to bring a smile to people (Hence the hats and silly outfits). Thanks for reading!

  • From Rhonda Edgington on Lobe den Herren dances for organ

    Life and Breath is very cool! I like it a lot.

    • From jupiterj on Lobe den Herren dances for organ

      Many thanks! You flatter an old man! I’m interested in any feedback you have. I emailed you about this. Hope your Holy Week is going well!
