Folks who dropped in on this OP earlier will notice a different title and post. My apologies for the less than rave-worthy original one; I really wasn't in a good mood at the time. Someone posted this video on another forum, and it seemed to me to be an ideal way to bid farewell to an old year. All of us had problems of some sort related to the pandemic, but it wasn't all bad (I hope). Anyway, presenting the Irish Rovers, over 50 years ago. The singer in this recording is now 80 years old.

My rave has to do with grocery shopping. Maddy was out of canned cat food and Extremely Displeased. No cat food was listed for sale in this week's flyer, so I just asked the clerk taking my phone order what the non-sale price was. To my utter shock (and hers), the price of an 85g tin of cat food was 89 cents. The price of a 156g tin of cat food was... 68 cents. Same brand, definitely not even close to its best-before date, just a larger size. This makes no sense, but I'm not going to argue with a price like that. Now Maddy is happy and that's what matters.
