    I hope not, but...

    There doesn't seem to be any presence from Halo in the ecf. Randle vanished.

    Maybe Halo will realize the large group of vaping enthusiasts that frequent the ecf, or all the positive promotion from the Number's Game.

    Until then, bump, baby, bump!!!

    I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
    'Bout your plans to make me blue
    With some other guy you knew before
    Between the two of us guys
    You know I loved you more
    It took me by surprise I must say
    When I found out yesterday
    Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
    Not much longer would you be mine
    Oh I heard it through the grapevine
    Oh I'm just about to lose my mind

    I was on a fast curve, lost my nerve on a dead end road
    I was goin' nowhere faster than two legs can go
    Never thought I'd slow down
    I'm glad I finally know now

    That's life, if you open up your eyes
    You'll find it gets better all the
    Time, time, time

    I never really noticed when she moved in next to me
    Sometimes it's amazing just how blind a guy can be
    If I weren't busy runnin'
    I might have seen it comin'

    That's life, if you open up your eyes
    You'll find it gets better all the
    Time, time, time

    Running out of time, I'm runnin' away
    I'm running out of ways of running away
    Got to slow down, if you don't, you're gonna breakdown

    I'm runnin' out of time, time, time

    I was eatin dinner, heard a ring at my front door
    I opened up and saw her, never felt like that before
    The moment that our eyes met I knew I'd never forget
    Sometimes the thing you most need is right there, but you can't see

    That's life, if you open up your eyes
    You'll find it gets better all the
    Time, time, time

    Paul Simon's thoughtful lyrics to
    "American Tune" c1973

    Many's the time I've been mistaken
    And many times confused
    Yes, and I've often felt forsaken
    And certainly misused
    But I'm all right, I'm all right
    I'm just weary to my bones
    Still, you don't expect to be
    Bright and bon vivant
    So far away from home, so far away from home

    And I don't know a soul who's not been battered
    I don't have a friend who feels at ease
    I don't know a dream that's not been shattered
    or driven to its knees
    But it's all right, it's all right
    For we've lived so well so long
    Still, when I think of the road we're traveling on
    I wonder what's gone wrong
    I can't help it, I wonder what's gone wrong

    And I dreamed I was dying
    I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
    And looking back down at me
    Smiled reassuringly
    And I dreamed I was flying
    And high up above my eyes could clearly see
    The Statue of Liberty
    Sailing away to sea
    And I dreamed I was flying

    We come on the ship they call the Mayflower
    We come on the ship that sailed the moon
    We come in the age's most uncertain hour
    and sing an American tune
    But it's all right, it's all right
    You can't be forever blessed
    Still, tomorrow's going to be another working day
    And I'm trying to get some rest
    That's all, I'm trying to get some rest

    "
    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    No one dare
    Disturb the sound of silence

    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said “The words of the prophets
    Are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sounds of silence.

    "

    And we're living here in Allentown
    But the restlessness was handed down
    And it's getting very hard to stay
    Well we're waiting here in Allentown
    For the Pennsylvania we never found
    For the promises our teachers gave
    If we worked hard
    If we behaved
    So the graduations hang on the wall
    But they never really helped us at all
    No they never taught us what was real
    Iron and coal
    Chromium steel
    And we're waiting here in Allentown
    But they've taken all the coal from the ground
    And the union people crawled away
    Every child has a pretty good shot
    To get at least as far as their old man got
    But something happened on the way to that place
    They threw an American flag in our face
    Well I'm living here in Allentown
    And it's hard to keep a good man down
    But I won't be getting up today
    And we're living here in Allentown

    I know you don't mean to be mean to me
    'Cause when you want to you can make me feel like we belong
    We belong
    Lately you make me feel all I am is a back-up plan
    I say I'm done and then you smile at me and I forget
    Everything I said

    I buy into those eyes
    And into your lies

    You say you'll call, but I know you
    You say you're coming home, but I know you
    You say you'll call, but I know you won't
    You say you'll call, but I know you won't

    I wish you were where you're supposed to be
    Close to me
    But here I am just staring at this candle burning out

    And still no sound

    Of footsteps on my stairs
    Or your voice anywhere

    You say you'll call, but I know you
    You say you're coming home, but I know you
    You say you'll call, but I know you won't
    You say you'll call, but I know you won't

    You say you'll call, but I know you
    You say you're coming home, but I know you
    You say you'll call, but I know you won't
    You say you'll call, but I know you won't

    Well I never been to Spain
    But I kinda like the music
    Say the ladies are insane there
    And they sure know how to use it
    They don't abuse it
    Never gonna lose it
    I can't refuse it
    Well I never been to England
    But I kinda like the Beatles
    Well, I headed for Las Vegas
    Only made it out to Needles
    Can you feel it
    It must be real it
    Feels so good
    Oh, feels so good
    Well I never been to heaven
    But I been to Oklahoma
    Well they tell me I was born there
    But I really don't remember
    In Oklahoma, not Arizona
    What does it matter
    What does it matter

    Knock down the old brick wall, and be a part of it all
    Nothing to say, nothing to see, nothing to do
    If you would give me all, as I would give it to you
    Nothing would be, nothing would be, nothing would be

    No matter where you go
    There will always be a place
    Can't you see in my face girl, oh girl don't you

    I am a lineman for the county
    And I drive the main road
    Searchin' in the sun for another overload
    I hear you singin' in the wire
    I can hear you through the whine
    And the Wichita lineman is still on the line

    I know I need a small vacation
    But it don't look like rain
    And if it snows that stretch down south
    Won't ever stand the strain
    And I need you more than want you
    And I want you for all time
    And the Wichita lineman is still on the line

    And I need you more than want you
    And I want you for all time
    And the Wichita lineman is still on the line.

    It don't make no difference
    Escaping one last time
    It's easier to believe
    In this sweet madness
    Oh this glorious sadness
    That brings me to my knees

    In the arms of the angel
    Fly away from here
    From this dark cold hotel room
    And the endlessness that you fear
    You are pulled from the wreckage
    Of your silent reverie
    You're in the arms of the angel
    May you find some comfort here

    And I was thinkin' maybe later on
    We could get together for a while
    It's been such a long time
    And I really do miss your smile

    I'm not talking about movin' in
    And I don't want to change your life
    But there's a warm wind blowin' the stars around
    And I'd really love to see you tonight

    Met my old lover in the grocery store
    The snow was falling Christmas Eve
    I stood behind her in the frozen foods
    And I touched her on the sleeve
    She didn't recognize the face at first
    But then her eyes flew open wide
    She went to hug me and she spilled her purse
    And we laughed until we cried
    We took her groceries to the check out stand
    The food was totaled up and bagged
    We stood there lost in our embarrassment
    As the conversation lagged
    We went to have ourselves a drink or two
    But couldn't find an open bar
    We bought a six-pack at the liquor store
    And we drank it in her car
    We drank a toast to innocence
    We drank a toast to now
    We tried to reach beyond the emptiness
    But neither one knew how
    She said she's married her an architect
    Who kept her warm and safe and dry
    She would have liked to say she loved the man
    But she didn't like to lie
    I said the years had been a friend to her
    And that her eyes were still as blue
    But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I saw
    Doubt or gratitude
    She said she saw me in the record stores
    And that I must be doing well
    I said the audience was heavenly
    But the traveling was Hell
    We drank a toast to innocence
    We drank a toast to now
    We tried to reach beyond the emptiness
    But neither one knew how
    We drank a toast to innocence
    We drank a toast to time
    Reliving, in our eloquence
    Another "Auld Lang Syne"
    The beer was empty and our tongues were tired
    And running out of things to say
    She gave a kiss to me as I got out
    And I watched her drive away
    Just for a moment I was back at school
    And felt that old familiar pain
    And, as I turned to make my way back home
    The snow turned into rain.

    Up every mornin' just to keep a job
    I gotta fight my way through the husslin' mob
    Sounds of the city poundin' in my brain
    While another day goes down the drain

    But it's a five o'clock world when the whistle blows
    No one owns a piece of my time
    And there's a five o'clock me inside my clothes
    Thinkin' that the world looks fine, yeah
