I figure Betty White will die tomorrow at this rate.  I'll miss old Sean.  Kind of hoped he'd come out of retirement for one last film that was fantastic like Sir Patrick did with Logan.

She didn't die of COVID but UTI.  She had Hep C which didn't help matters.

Make sure you guys drink plenty of water.  Dehydration is just as deadly.

Thanks for posting that link lilshawn.
I had heard about Neil Peart a while back but hadn't read anything up to this.
Personal hero of mine for sure.

Finally saw Rush play live in the no longer existent New Haven Colisseum for the Hold Your Fire tour when I was in high school.

That guys playing always left me speechless.
Who would've thought he wrote the lyrics too?!

Why'd you kick me?

Magicians doing the final disappearing act is one illusion don't want to hear/see about.

One mystery of a Magi that comes up in conversation alot is Daryl. I myself don't think he committed the act.

Gee we re really getting old and soon will be next.  :banghead:
