\_/ \_/ Drink up! Arthur, yeah, the last links with Hollywood's "Golden Age" will soon be severed, and many born in the 1940s are really at risk - such an extraordinarily important birth decade for western popular music.

And a very Happy New Year to you my talented friend! Here is praying that 2017 gives us all some relief from this wicked world that surrounds us! I trust your pen remains hot and your blessings large...
