    Bitcoin—Keep Your Thoughts Coming…

    About 10 days ago, we had a bit of a Bitcoin bashing thread. Not to be superstitious, but it seems to have started a sharp increase to the upside. Thanks! Let’s keep the Bad Dog Mojo working!

    Yesterday morning, here in North Myrtle Beach where we are staying, a guy started a sandcastle. I had never witnessed a quality sandcastle being built from scratch and was impressed with what a lengthy, painstaking undertaking it is. Ten hours later at twilight, the guy quit for the evening...

    Smartest Person In The Room

    From an interesting article in Business Insider I read about Michael Dell, CEO of Dell Technologies. One of his 21 Principles for Success. This one struck me as a good overall life advice: “Try never to be the smartest person in the room. Surround yourself with people who challenge you, teach...

    Worn out silly songs you secretly love.

    It's Friday afternoon when my fancy turns to smoking up some BBQ, having a cold one and listening to some tunes. I was inspired by the "Songs you refuse to play" thread and thought we should have some fun. Be brave. Be Honest. Happy Friday! Warning: Jimmy Buffet content: One more. I sense a...

    Kurt Vonnegut Quote

    I'm too lazy to verify if Vonnegut actually said this, but I really needed to read this story today... “When I was 15, I spent a month working on an archeological dig. I was talking to one of the archeologists one day during our lunch break and he asked those kinds of “getting to know you”...

    Cool Billy Gibbons Quote

    Billy Gibbons: Early on, B.B. King and I shared a dressing room. I was about 22, and he kind of leaned over and said, “Learn to play what you like to hear.” When I heard that statement, I just twisted off into a different direction. It’d be impossible to predict where we would have gone had we...

    IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED... A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2021 Super Bowl in Tampa, Florida, both box seats. He paid $21,500 each.

    60s Soul & Country

    As you might guess by my forum name, I love 60s/70s Soul. I have always been fascinated by the connection of soul with a lot of country ballads. Sometimes, with a few simple arrangement adjustments, songs can be interchangeable. I, somewhat belatedly, stumbled upon this tune by Chris Stapleton...
