    Kat, we have a Christmas chip that plays in the music system and this wonderful song came up this morning.
    The memory cards contains music from the sublime (Emmylou) to the ridiculous – we have already heard Paddy Roberts “Merry Christmas you suckers” twice.
    Great song Kat

    Hi Kat

    I am just a random browser from Hong Kong. Do you have your biography somewhere in this website? I am curious about what makes you want to share music with readers. You often pick folk musics in this post, which is one of my favorites. I don’t have a certain favorite artist, but your songs widen my knowledge on music appreciation. I truly appreciate your kindness.

    I am sick of so-call “modern” music today.

      Hi Bobby,
      My retirement started it all. I retired early because I could. One day I was playing around on the computer when I stumbled across some music blogs. None of them had folk music so I started Coffee and posted only folk, my favorite kind of music. After a while, maybe 7 or 8 years, I wanted to expand my musical offerings. On Coffee, I asked and the response was go for it. Since then the music has been eclectic but doesn’t include rap or today’s rock. I stopped watching the Grammy awards when I didn’t know any of the singers. I try to post all sorts of music from different eras and from all over the place. It’s been fun. This is the 10th year of Coffee.

      Nice to meet you, Bobby!

        I barely know what Grammy award is, but I am not interested about the celebrities. Indeed, the wisdom of our new generations depends on what entertainments we have. The more time we spend on TV / games, the dumber we are.

        Enjoy your retirement while you can. Most Americans in my generation would make enough income to retire, and so do my generation in Hong Kong.

        The Grammy Award is for the best song in a variety of categories. It’s a big deal to win one.

        I worry about today’s kids. They don’t read the way we did growing up. They are never without cell phones in their hands, and they have a need to be connected.

        I don’t have much money but I have enough.

    Welcome to ‘coffee’. You’ll quickly learn a few things: Kat has great taste in music; her musical choices reflect an appreciation of a quality of life that she has long had, and has long shared (I don’t know that, and I don’t know her, except from this site, but it seems to be true); and there’s a community of readers here– we keep coming back: welcome. Happy Holidays, whatever they may be…
