    & as always you too John. :yesway: You've said you've got a bit of the English channel frozen up down there? That is super bollock cold. Kind of weather you need to jump up and down on the spot just to stay blue. :hyper: < Exactly. :laugh2:

    This is the bugger to keep an eye on. Storm Emma..The bit I'm keeping my eye on is the green part currently over France and heading north.. Gales and rain storms.
    That could bring some serious crap to the south when it collides with the Beast from the east tomorrow as the rain coupled with the winds will turn to blizzards and frozen rain. It will then head up north toward Jockland to bring even more snow.

    It's been about -2 all day and it's got pretty windy out there :shock: , so I suspect we have a pretty low wind chill.

    Oh aye, my love spuds are in hibernation at the moment. Got 3 Adam's apples & I need a microscope & tweezers to go for a whizz.

    You'll be glad to know we are about to add "Strange Little Girl" "Homicide" and "Marooned" ( by wire ) along with Orange Crush, Mr Jones and Starlight to our repertoire. For our summer shindig, there will be a cowboy theme, so we're looking at including The Cowboy Song, Jolene and Wanted Dead or Alive into our sets.

    Compression and various flavors of distortion are wonderful colors to have in one's paintbox, and so is a nice 3D clean tone, which is my default tone and maybe my fave.
    As I'm fond of saying, when I color, I want the big-ass box of crayons!

    g evenings

    I'm going to ask for a little bit of magic from those gathered at the party . it seems that the color of the Strat that Laura wants , " might " be out of stock at the GC ( throughout the entire chain ) . I really don't want to order it online from another store , because I've never bought anything that I didn't get to check out first

    I'm hoping that I can finalize it this weekend , without the hassle of mail order . she's really looking forward to something of her own . . .

    So if it's out of stock for the entire chain...where you gonna get it?

    I've always been very satisfied with Sweetwater. Of course you can't check it out first. They may have a liberal return policy..don't remember.

    Is that Sonic or Daphne blue?

    Musician's Friend has a few in stock __ but SweetWater seems like a better choice . and it's the Daphne Blue that she wants

    I never had a problem with Musicians Friend myself...but have read some complaints over the years. Never heard anyone bitch about Sweetwater so far.

    I've ordered items that were not really that expensive and they've actually called me to see if I was pleased. Who does that? I talked to one guy for 20 minutes. About..just music stuff.
