Hi folks,

I just split my first Greek Italy, Apulia page into 2 pages. It was getting too crowded in there.

Additionally, I will be adding another coin to that page later tonight.

Hi folks,

Today, I split my Medieval Italy, Colonial Genoese, Cyprus - Lesbos page into 2 pages:

Cyprus - Greece
Lesbos

I decided to give my Colonial Genoese, Lesbos coins their own page. I also did it to accommodate future growth. There is only one coin in that page now, but I know that I will be receiving at least one Colonial Genoese, Lesbos coin in the near future.

I haven't worked on my website in a few weeks, since mid October. I've been very busy lately. I've had a lot on my plate. It's not one thing. It's a bunch of little things all converging at once. And this is preventing me from working on my website. Unfortunately, this situation is going to persist for at least the next few weeks. Hopefully, optimistically, I should be able to resume working on my website in a about one month (circa mid December). This means that I am not going to be able to work on my website for at least 2 months (mid October to mid December).

I had some free time today, so that is why I split that page into 2 pages.

Today, I also edited the text in my Greek, Epiros page.

Hi folks,

Today, I split my Greek Italy, Campania, Neapolis, Bronze, Part 2 page into 2 pages. I created a new Part 2A page. I did this to accommodate future growth. It was getting too crowded in there. I will be adding several AE Campania man-faced bull coins to my website in the coming months.

I also edited the text in my Greek Italy, Bruttium, Croton page.

Hopefully, I will be able to resume working on my website in a few weeks.

Hi folks,

This may or may not be an appropriate place to post this message, but I am not a member of Facebook or any similar social networking sites. And Forum is the only message board where I regularly post. So, I figured that this is as good a place as any to post this. I think I need a place to vent.

Today is one of the saddest days of my life. It feels like the whole world just came crashing down on me. I am still in shock, and I am still trying to process what happened. I feel like I have a hole in my heart, and I don't know if it can ever be filled.

Several hours ago, I was listening to my stereo. And I learned that Neil Peart died of brain cancer. He was the drummer and lyricist of the rock band Rush.

As many Forum members already know, I am one of the biggest Rush fans in the world. Rush has been my favorite band since 1984, when I was 16 years old. With the exception of the years that I was too sick to attend their concerts, I have seen every Rush tour since their "Power Windows" tour in 1985-1986. All total, if my memory serves me correctly, I have seen 9 Rush tours. Seeing Rush perform live has been one of the highlights of my life. For me, whenever Rush came to town, the world stopped.

Rush has certainly been one of the biggest influences in my life. In fact, I would list Rush and Howard Stern as the 2 biggest influences in my life, even more so than my own parents.

In typical Neil Peart fashion, he kept his illness a secret. No one knew. And that is why his death was such a shock to me and everyone else.

I am glad that I was able to see Rush perform live so many times. When possible, I made sure that I pushed through my illness to attend their concerts. I will cherish the memories.

Here is a list of Rush tours that I saw live:

Power Windows
Hold Your Fire
Presto
Roll the Bones
30th Anniversary
Snakes & Arrows
Time Machine
Clockwork Angels
40th Anniversary

Hang in there, Meep!   Music is one of the strongest personal and cultural connections that anyone can experience. My wife has tweeted about Neil several times today, and Don McLean recognized your feelings a long, long time ago.

Be well!

Meep, I'm very sorrry for your loss.  Years ago, I was a semi-professional blues guitarist.  I've experienced the loss of many of my musical influences and idols over the years.  You hit the nail on the head when you said "cherish the memories" and of course all the music.  In this case you have records and probably lots of video on YouTube to carry you through.

Hi PMah and Cara,

Thank you for the messages. Yes, it is true that I have Rush's albums and concert DVDs. But it is difficult to deal with the loss of such a significant influence in my life. I have dreaded this event ever since I was a teenager.

And this is in addition to all of the other deaths/losses I have had to deal with recently. In the recent past, so many members of my extended family have died. My mother is one of 7 children. She is the youngest. She had 3 brothers and 3 sisters. We are Italian-Americans, so we were all very close and very involved in each other's lives. My mother's brothers and sisters (my aunts and uncles) were all children of Italian immigrants who emigrated to America in the 1920s. My mother's 3 brothers died several years ago. Within a span of about 20 months (Spring 2018 - December 2019), my mother's 3 sisters and a close female cousin all died. My mother's last remaining sister died a few weeks ago, in December 2019. The spouses are all dead too. My mother is the last one left, and she is going to be 78 years old in a few months. It seems like all I have doing lately is going to wakes. I'm tired of going to wakes. That whole "second generation" in America (children of Italian immigrants) is gone. They are all dead. For me, being someone who grew up "very Italian", it is like the end of an era. At my aunt's wake last year, one of my first cousins commented, "That whole generation is gone now. We are the next generation." It's sort of like the passing of the torch.

When I was a kid back in the 1970s, we had such a large family. Between my mother's siblings and their children (my first cousins), there were dozens of us. And, if you add to that my mother's first cousins (who had many siblings) and their children (my third cousins), there were well over 100 of us, probably 200 or more people. When we had parties back in the 1970s, there were well over 200 relatives there. At some point in the late 1970s, it just got to be "too much". And we literally had to "dis-invite" over 100 people (relatives) just to get the guest list down to 100 plus people.

But most of them are dead now, and many of my surviving relatives have moved away. When we have parties now, it is such a stark contrast. Now, we are lucky if we can scrape together 5 or 10 people to show up. My mother is constantly commenting about this fact. She really misses her family.

My father (who died in 2010) was also the child of Italian immigrants. But he came from a completely different situation. He was an only child. He had no siblings.

My parents often jokingly told a true story about the time when they were dating (before they were married). Believe it or not, my mother's 200 plus relatives all lived within 2 or 3 blocks of each other. They were all children of immigrants from Maddaloni (Naples), Italy. Their parents (my grandparents and their relatives) all came from the same town in Italy, and they all settled in the same area, literally within 2 or 3 blocks of each other. It was like "little Italy" here in America. When my parents started dating, my mother introduced my father to all (and I mean ALL) of her relatives. My father lost track of them, and he didn't know who was who. He just knew that they were my mother's relatives, so he just waved and said "Hello" to anyone in that neighborhood. But he had no idea who he was sating "Hello" to. My father really didn't care anyway. He wasn't a "people person". My father had a one track mind: cars, cars, cars. If something didn't have 4 wheels and a battery, he wasn't interested in it. My father didn't remember people, but he remembered their cars.

This is where my post comes full circle. Neil Peart of Rush was also a "car person", like my father (and myself). And Neil had an extensive antique car collection.
