Sunday Drive - 10/30/2022 Edition
👋🏻 Hello friends,
Greetings from Saratoga Springs, NY! Let's take it easy and enjoy this week's leisurely Sunday Drive around the internet.
This week's focus is (once again) on longevity.
The Vibe of the Week is More Than a Feeling from the 1976 self-titled debut album by Boston.
It's worth remembering the tremendous musicianship of so many (non-disco) bands from the 1970's. Brad Delp's vocal power and range were truly epic. Enjoy...

As the population in the developed world begins to decline in the coming years, it's imperative that we maintain our collective ability to contribute to the economic wellbeing of society. If we don't, we run the risk of seeing the progress we've made in improving the lives and livelihoods of humanity turn in the wrong direction.
