Looks like the Mule needs more server power - "Resource Limit Is Reached" is what I'm getting more and more often....
Lovely radio, Tommo!
It looks like the Shaub-Lorenz tube multiband radio I inherited from Dad.
I'd love to turn it into an amp someday.
That, and my "waterfall" Philco as well.
...ideally with some kind of Radio/Amp switch so I can go back and forth between playing Radio Koln and rocking my guitars.
As for The Mule, it is giving me endless grief and I may have to take a vacation from it so I can concentrate on the 100-degree weather that is landing on my "sayonara, eldercare!" getaway this weekend.
As for cars, my tastes are very Seinfeld/Leno, all over the map, from microcars to a nice 1960 Imperial to a nice 1970 Lambo Miura to a nice over-the-top bespoke hot rod.
If I had the money, you bet I would own and drive them all, and would love them to distraction.
...and I would give zero f*cks about other people's jealousy.
As Jimi said, "I'm the one that's got to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to."
I agree with you, Dom, and the practiced eye can tell the insufferable "I'm better than you, haw haw" sh*theads from the aficionados.Don't get me wrong, Tim - nothing against the genuine aficionado, it's the wallet-wavers I can't stand, and mostly that's what they are. People strutting round shouting 'I'm richer than you'. FTS.
That's the true spirit. Doesn't matter if it's cars, guitars, watches or whatever. They love the thing for itself.I agree with you, Dom, and the practiced eye can tell the insufferable "I'm better than you, haw haw" sh*theads from the aficionados.
No airs at all, just enthusiasm.
SO true . and if the enthusiasm isn't there __ you have to wonder just " how " interested a person is in somethingThat's the true spirit. Doesn't matter if it's cars, guitars, watches or whatever. They love the thing for itself.
Yes, yes! The enthusiasm, the willingness to share the joy with others, is wonderful.That's the true spirit. Doesn't matter if it's cars, guitars, watches or whatever. They love the thing for itself.
How far are you from the open sea Dom ? I'd guess about 35 miles. Not too far then.I just got back from a very long lunch on the terrace by the river behind the Bishop on the Bridge pub - with two beautiful women, no less (one my wife, the other her friend Judith) - but I envy you the sea, the sea...
So sorry to hear that news Tim.In other news, I have been informed that my brother Dave's cancer is Stage 4, and Western medicine has done all it can for him.
He's doing what Dad did back in the early 2000s, namely downplaying the severity of his illness from the left coast, while the East Coast family remains largely clueless.
So, allopathic medicine has been a colossal fail.
It's up to alternative and metaphysical healing now. It's all he has left.
So, again, I petition you all for any and all good energies on his behalf.
Sure, I have another brother whose cancer numbers are creeping up, and a guitar buddy in a body cast because multiple myeloma has eaten his vertebrae, but they actually have decent long-term prognoses...
Dave, not so much.
I visit my housebound guitar buddy Bill every Saturday and we eat burgers and watch music youtubes on his big TV, and that's how I try to contibute to his eventual healing, but Dave is on the other side of the country, dammit, so no cheeseburger for Mister Dave.
Got a lot on my mind, yo.
Very good question, my friend.SO true . and if the enthusiasm isn't there __ you have to wonder just " how " interested a person is in something
there's a local car show downtown every last Friday of the month . I'm not really into the cars , but I can really appreciate their aesthetic value . truly works of art meets machinery
but some of the owners seem very uninterested . and I wonder . WHY ?
I could understand if it were simply the case of me being tight fisted bastard but it's not as I can be enthusiastic and generous with Sylvia and my family and give my time freely too many students..It's just with myself for some strange reason.On the rare occasions where I have managed to summon that sentiment, I have saved a lot of money.
One of my fellow GAS sufferers and I are often tempted by various half-off sales etc. During such times of temptation, we remind each other "if you don't buy anything, you save 100%!"
