Sweet Chili Pistachios - terrible idea

Donald Trump cheats at golf.

This is the sort of stuff I should be writing on the FacePage, but instead I come up with shit like

“I’ll Be Seeing You” is a tune from 1938 about nostalgia (which ain’t what it used to be) with music by Sammy Fain and lyrics by Irving Kahal. The geniuses at Wikipedia remark that the tune’s first four lines bear a striking resemblance to the last movement of Gustav Mahler’s 3rd Symphony (1896). And what’s more, the last bit of data sent by NASA to the Opportunity rover on Mars (Feb. 2019) was Billy Holliday’s 1944 version of the song.

I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

I’ll include the tune in today’s cover contest.

So, put on your bust-a-move footwear and your brainiac beret, comb your hairs, come downstairs, grab yourself a supersonic gin and tonic, or maybe a mere spot of tea, and tune your radio to 90.5 FM.

Joni Loves Cha-cha

That is insane. I just get lucky sometimes. That said, this time was pure skill.
Thanks for the tidbit about the Mars Rover. I follow all that way out stuff, but somehow missed that precious piece of appropriate trivia.
I did get lucky with Cassandra Wilson (almost said Williams) and they all sound like Joni Mitchell to me.
