I don't know if any of you have noticed my new profile picture.

I figured that if I have to live like a hermit, I might as well look like one.

It's the longest my hair has been since the summer of 1970.

I hope some of you were able to watch Laurel Canyon on Epix the last two Sundays.

It is a great documentary of the music of the late 60s. 

Artists include Mamas and Papas, Byrds, CSN&Y, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and many more.

@BobH07  -  I didn't get to watch it over the weekend, but assume it will be available for a while. I was going to subscribe to Epix for a while b/c there was another series that I wanted to see. I hope to see Laurel Canyon, sounds really interesting.

If you like the music of CSN&Y, The Byrds, Mamas and Papas, Jackson Browne, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell etc., it's a must watch.
