As most of you have noticed we’ve been a might quiet over here of late. I guess you could say it’s the disappointment that saner heads have yet to prevail after a gawddamn insurrection of our Capitol. I’ve allowed the stresses of the whole gawddamn mess to be the cat that’s got our tongue of sorts.
Anyhoo, I did find this hilarious so I’ll share as we can all use a good laugh once in awhile. Amiright?
Trae Crowder, gotta love him.
When witnessing a crime should we look the other way? Or call them out?

President Biden has hit the road and he’s a rollin’.
Let’s keep the steam pumpin with not one, not two but three wonderful versions of a Fearsome favorite, Proud Mary.
Broken Peach – Proud Mary – 2017
Tina Turner – Proud Mary – 2009 (49 years after she first charted a tune in 1960 and 38 years after she & Ike made their cover of this tune famous, she is 70 years old in this performance.)
Creedence Clearwater Revival – Proud Mary – 1969
Keep on rollin’ Joe. You are doing a good man’s work and we support you.
We here at Fearsome Beard the blog thingy believe in recognizing and even promoting those who we feel are working not only to improve themselves but the world around them.
Yesterday we had the honor of witnessing a break out moment for a rising star of our future. We were so moved by Amanda Gordon that the moment we could find a clip of her poetry reading on YouTube we posted it. Today we learned more about her from Anderson Cooper. We hope to learn lots more about her in the future as we watch her rise into a leader. A leader worth listening to.
She gives us hope.

“For there is always light if only we are brave enough to see it, if only we are brave enough to be it.”
I’ve been saving this famous clip of Judy & Barbra just for today.
Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand – Happy Days Are Here Again / Come On Get Happy – 1963
Congratulations President Biden and Vice President Harris. Thank you for your service to our country. The world breathes a sigh of relief.
Emotional doesn’t even start to describe my feelings. My feelings are appropriate.
I think I’ll just let myself feel the emotions as these tears of joy still stream down my cheeks as they have off and on all day today.
Filled with hope I tuck myself into bed tonight, for tomorrow will finally arrive when I awake.
It’s been a long cold lonely winter. Thank all of you for sticking with me through it, I couldn’t have done it without you.
The Beatles – Here Comes The Sun – 1969
