This week on the Friday #80s Flashback, it's the 40th anniversary of Billy Squier's third solo album, EMOTIONS IN MOTION. This album had two big hits: the title track and "Everybody Wants You"! #music #rock https://bookendedbycats.blogspot.com/2022/07/friday-80s-flashback-for-july-29-2022.html
#SDCC is in full swing, so this week's Friday #80s Flashback features a trio of 1980s tunes inspired by, about, or somehow related to #comic books.
And here's the Friday #80s Flashback for 7/15/2022. We're celebrating the 40th anniversary of Hunters & Collectors' eponymous debut album! Do you remember these Australian art-funk rockers? (Boy, that phrase looks kinda weird). https://bookendedbycats.blogspot.com/2022/07/friday-80s-flashback-for-july-15-2022.html

From YOUR MYTHIC LIFE (LinkedIn post): SCOTUS did not rule that teachers can lead students in prayer. The SCOTUS ruling isn't good, but we should be clear as to what the situation is and is not.
