Tragic Fire

On 2 February 2015, my house burned to the ground. 

It is quite a process "starting over."

For the purposes of this blog, the relevant result of the fire is that my entire music collection - CDs, LPs, and digital files - were destroyed.  My wife, bless her heart, did manage to grab my iPod, which has several thousand tracks on it.

However, the digital photographs of the nearly 2000 LP covers I had taken were lost when my computers and external hard drives were destroyed.

Thankfully, for some purpose I cannot now recall, I had emailed my working spreadsheet (Excel file) to myself a while back.  I believe it is complete; i.e., I do not think I had added any new items to it subsequent to sending it to myself.

So, I have the list!  But I do not have the pictures of the actual albums.  Henceforth, I will need to find an alternate source for the LP cover art when I get back to this blog and continue its development.

Please be patient. In terms of priorities, this blog (and my others, as well) is pretty far down on the list.

Nevertheless, I hope to be back at it as soon as I can.

Stand by!
