Thanks! They're just a handful selected from a couple-dozen images I shot that afternoon.

Here's one I took about an hour ago while walking the dogs. The white dot is not a broken pixel on your screen, but our neighbor called Venus Smile

Here's one of my favourite mechanical marvels... The Ortofon pickup on my 35+ year old Technics turntable (bought it used over 30 years ago) playing ZZ Top Cool

Mine's an SL-Q3, also with the direct drive and has the strobo too. The start/stop button acted up already when I bought it, and quit completely over ten years ago. I just take the arm manually to the record. The return, repeat and other functions work just fine. This is not the most "sought after" bulletproof model (can't remember the exact type) but it is still a pretty good one.

Brother... if you only lived closer. It'd be costly to ship these beasts.. but I have a pair of AR-2 ax's that are sitting on the floor of my workshop.



My uncle gave them to me a few years ago. I don't know if they work. If they do.. they'd make a really nice compliment to a receiver/amp that could drive them. I looked up the specs on them a while back. They're high-end audiophile pieces from the 1970's. Some had Mil-spec "caps" in the cross-over network, that would stand the test of time. IDK if these have those capacitors.

I should test the pair. They're just sitting there.. I couldn't see them being thrown out. That was their destiny. They're good-size cabs... 11.5" x 13.5" x 24".. somewhat sadly obtrusive by "today's" room-décor standards. What? To a musician like me; speaker-cabs are part of the furniture!

Turntables and vinyl are a TREAT! There's "sonic" frequencies going-on with a turn-table, that can't be reproduced digitally. I don't care what anyone claims. The closest one can come; is to digitally record from a vinyl-source.

I did this with a Chet Atkins LP "Stringing along With.. " It's really cool. I'll send you some tracks via email bud!

Heck Fred, bombers are pas a. Yesterday I watched an episode of "How the World Ends" on AHC showing the Russians developing a mega X2 bomb with intentions of burying it in Yellowstone blowing up a giant volcano and destroying America, coupled with others planted on both coasts generating giant waves completing the destruction.

Where do they come up with this stuff.

In the near or distant future there are more than two natural disasters facing us and I am not sure we have ANY plan to deal with them

Mt Ranier will erupt some day and the cone faces toward Tacoma/Seattle... loss of life, and economic impacts are real possibility---- but on the other hand...the Liberal population will have a significant reduction...not a bad thing IMO

I was badly impacted personally from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens .. We did not seek nor need state or federal help ----but lost a lot of use* of our property for two months....and still not sure about future lung issues from the ash

I also saw something on Old Faithful and it's active volcano heaving and blowing** some day... localized impact not too bad as not a dense populated area...but easterly prevailing winds will dump a LOT of bad gasses and ash in a lot of USAs heart land with devastating effects

* Our 5 acres with two mobile homes was blanketed with 15"~18" of the ash... the weight of the ash is very similar to a bag of Portland cement... crushed both mobile home roofs and required a lot of labor to remove from the acreage...

**Yellow Stone disaster scenario was probably the nexus for the writers of the movie you saw

What I always find funny in all the themes of "World Domination" scenario writing is if you totally destroy an area then what use is it too you...

NOW back to wall paper

My screen savers/backgrounds are not imaginative... I use Micro Soft's stock backgrounds
