“…And The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth.”

Kinda prescient in this 2016 post-election climate.

I'm Richard Nikoley. Free The Animal began in 2003 and as of 2021, contains 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from health, diet, and food to travel and lifestyle; to politics, social antagonism, expat-living location and time independent—while you sleep—income. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. Read More

    That a lot of music for just three middle aged guys. Very nice.

      I like a straight up, honest comment devoid of baggage and pretense, with a spice of wonder.

      It’s rare, but if I’m in a good place and have the time, such a comment might actually motivate me to put up another blog post and kick it to the front of the publishing queue.

      I like how you honestly noted “that’s a lot of music.” It is. They are middle edged, but have been doing it for decades.

      Here’s a few decades ago.

    Accidentally caught a modern concert on TV earlier in the year and saw them play YYZ. It was great. I love Rush, they are socialist hippies you know.

    off topic Real business…
    Richard, when you tried to set up another facebook account and got banned, did you do it on the same computer you normally use? How did they catch you, cookies, or did you give it away some how?

    They forced me to put my real name when I had a perfectly good one, all my friends knew with no searchable details, and I want a re-boot of my account. Was curious if they caught you with cookies.

      ” they are socialist hippies you know.”

      No, I don’t.

      How do you “know” that?

      Canada joke. I think Sean Hannity said that on the radio one time, not that I like him, but I used to get good traffic updates on his station before WAZE. I think they are actually more or less libertarian.
