    I Miss Real Drums, Rhythmic Variation, Song Dynamics . . .

    Four-on-the-floor loud kick drum part as the basis for every single song is so boring!

    Chewing gum while supposed to be a professional

    No no no. It is unprofessional, and can be quite disgusting.

    Just bought a Twin Reverb...

    Back in the 80s, I played--and still have--a 64 BFTR with gray frame JBLs in it. It sounded fabulous. I can't even lift it now, and that's without the JBLs in it. It sounded fabulous.

    Just bought a Twin Reverb...

    There is nothing like a Twin. They weigh a ton, but they sound fabulous. They just sound wonderful.

    The housing market is BONKERS

    It is supply and demand. Demand is high, many people have the funds available to buy, but inventory is low because of the reason cited over and over again above--great, I can sell my house for twice what I paid, but I would have to pay three times what I paid to get something I would like. Ergo...

    One of my dogs has heartworms

    This^. The dog must be clear of heartworm before starting preventatives. The preventives will kill the existing heartworm and possibly cause stroke or heart attack as the worm carcasses flood the bloodstream. The treatment is rough on the dog, but better than the alternative. Do it.

    Guitar Center Trade-In Experiences

    Having just sold a guitar on Reverb, after shipping and many, many fees, I netted about 80% of the sale price. GC apparently pays 60%, pretty much on the spot. You have to decide how much the 20% difference is worth to you, not only in money but in time and trouble.

    Second shift, third shift

    They do get smug about the early riser thing, don't they? Never have been, never will be. Call me anything, but don't call me early for breakfast. In fact, don't call me early at all.

    There have been threads about hearing loss, but this is kind of different.

    A little hearing loss makes for a very quiet and peaceful existence, making lemonade out of lemons.

    The greatest Citroen is of course the "traction avant"--

    French 'Farmer's Car' in South Dakota?

    Correct, but the "chevaux" are French calculated machine horsepower, which roughly translates to one chevaux equals 14 horsepower.
