Re: Corona Virus Lock Down 'Rant' Thread.

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Ella Fitzgerald - Let No Man Write My Epitaph. On Classic Records vinyl. Recorded a couple of weeks short of 60 years ago. Indescribably good.

This guy's an amazing woodworker, lots of interesting videos to watch. This one he shows briefly how he routes out for the brace on a large door at around 5:24.
