“Imagine a leader who defies science, saying these solutions shouldn’t be part of his decision-making on our behalf. Imagine a leader who cares more for his own, convenient option than he does for the people he leads. Imagine an unfit leader. Now imagine a fit one.” Neil Young

Among the many fires that raged and rage throughout the West coast of both US and Canada this year the terrible one that took place in Paradise, near Chico, a few days ago was made much more personal by being the area where we had spent a week on holidays in Lassen National Park. While I think the place escaped the fire, it would be great to hear from the people who hosted us that they are safe… [The quote from Neil Young is related to another fire in Malibu.]

The other day, I bought Neil Young’s Harvest as it was on sale  for a ridiculous price. This album was one of my favourites in high school (!) but I hadn’t listened to it for ages. Alabama‘s magic hasn’t faded a bit!
