    I hear you singing in the wires...

    Sometimes, you just forget how good a song can be.... I heard this one and it took me back to my childhood.

    Yes. No. Rat's Ass

    Thinking about selling a couple of seldom used pistols to buy this... @Malikon - you have a few new Gretsch's, right? https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/G5420TORNG--gretsch-g5420t-electromatic-hollowbody-orange-stain

    Chess is for girls...

    We started watching Queen's Gambit last evening. They do a pretty good job making a vehicle for the lead actor, Anya Taylor-Joy. It's a bit shallow and very over-contrived. But, Anya is much bigger than the role. It's not the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, but it is very good show. I don't see how it...

    Twenty Brutal Truths About Life

    I stumbled across this earlier today and it's been on my mind ever since... 1. You're going to die and you have no idea when. Stop pretending that you're invincible. Acknowledge the fact of your own mortality, and then start structuring your life in a more meaningful way. 2. Everyone you love...

    Our New Bikes Arrived, Finally!

    We ordered new bikes back in the beginning of July. They arrived last Friday after a very long wait. We've been looking forward to them for a while, and now with the cooler weather, we can take longer rides and enjoy the fall scenery. My dear darling bride got a Trek Dual Sport 2 and I got a...

    Send Lori to Litchfield

    Two months of "two in the pink, one in the stink" will do her good.

    Does anyone really GAFF if College Football doesn't happen? How about the NFL?

    The Big Ten and Pac-12 just "postponed" the season and the smart money is betting the East Coast schools will follow suit. Only the SEC (big surprise there) is wanting to play... but, I mean, really? Who cares? Of course - It sucks balls for the kids, for sure. It especially sucks balls for...

    Looking for a Hybrid/Comfort Bike: $400-$600 Range

    I could spend more, but I won't, Ideally, I'd like to keep the cost closer to $400, than to $600. I know enough about bikes to be dangerous. But, I have no need for carbon fiber, titanium, unobtainium, or any exotic racing gearing, features or functions. IMHO, the law of diminishing returns...

    Hang 'Em High!

    I finally got around to hanging up my gigging guitars in the "studio". These are the guitars that get gigged and so they always stay out, so I can practice with them. The others are cased and stored away. L - R: -- 1977 Ovation; 2013 R9; 2012 MIM Strat; 2014 Baja Tele The...

    Unsolicited Public Apology

    After sleeping on my little tirade from yesterday, I have come to the conclusion that I completely mishandled my directional post toward @LtDave32. I owe him an apology, and I owe it to him to deliver that apology in the same way that I created the problem – right here in a public post. First...

    Some of you are not going to like this...

    Before I get on topic, first let me thank those members who reached out to me, asking how I (and my family) was doing. I genuinely appreciate those sentiments. As I told the good folks who asked – “I am doing very well, thank you”. Other than the turmoil in our lives, my family is healthy...

    Thank you to all who served!

    On this Memorial Day, I want to thank everyone who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. And, I also want to thank the returning veterans who defended our freedom. Also, as a non-veteran, I cannot possibly understand what you vets endured as you kept our country safe, or the pride that...

    You can't make this shit up...

    I'm out working in the yard and my wife calls me to come in... she's channel surfing and comes across this in the guide. :laugh2: Someone call 'Bling.... @Alligatorbling! :rofl:

    Placeholder for MLP Post 'Rona Group Meet & Eat

    Saving this thread (maybe a sticky) for after the 'rona passes, so we can all get together and share a meal, some laughs, an argument or two, and some good time with some good people that we have never met. We'll have to work out the details, but what the fuck, right? And, if you really think...

    MLB Players won’t take pay cut? Fuck ‘Em.

    So. They want to have a baseball season. Good. Empty stadiums. Sigh. Huge revenue loss for everyone, though. But, the steroid boys still want their full pay and they say there is no wiggle room??! Fuck them all. Pay them NOTHING. Hire replacement players. More overpaid, greedy behavior. Lock...

    Blue Angels & Thunderbirds Flyover: Trenton, NJ - 4/28/2020 (with a surprise)

    We live pretty close to Trenton, so we decided to go check out the joint flyover earlier this afternoon. While the whole event was over & done with in just a few minutes, it was really great to see the best-of-the-best do a joint flyover. One of my childhood dreams was to be a Blue Angel pilot...

    By popular request... another rant - this time on the PC of signing on TV updates.

    Am I the only one who is confused why, every time that I turn on the television and see some local, state or national political yahoo, giving their self-important update on some “emergency situation/crisis/event/whatever” – I will see a hand signer standing right next to them, interpreting for...
