    The lightning strike post...and the business of historical truth

    Long ago I posted some information regarding the phrase "getting gypped". I explained how it wasn't derived from any sort of racial slur, but came about during the Klondike gold rush when any prospector taking the trail to the mine fields was mandated by the Mounties to have a certain list of...

    You can't choose your neighbors

    When you're looking for a house, you can check the schools, check the crime stats, overall demographic...but you really can't go door to door to vet your future neighbors. Look around a little for methy looking yards...but till you move in you are really just hoping for the best. My daughter...

    I'm trying to find a tribute song about JJ Cale...thought it was Dave Alvin

    I've googled all the keywords I can think of and come up empty. That's all I have but would love to find it. Incidentally, there is a JJ Cale release around the corner...thanks for anything you can find!

    Transition: Car to an SUV, where do I put my stuff?

    My wife and I managed to enjoy having a car for 10 years after driving mini vans most of our child rearing years. It was a 2008 Hyundai Sonata with a powerful but economical v6, drove great and dependable as can be. Loved that car and would still be driving it, but some grandkids came into the...

    I'd like to thank a fellow member for breakfast...

    I was lucky enough to start out the day with a couple of the members of this campfire. Shared a table with two good ones. Harry Styron I've had the pleasure of knowing a few years and have shared coffee with in the past, and gloriously, Nickadermis who's year was spent fighting deadly cancer and...

    Hidden Treasure

    I had something fun happen last week. I was looking through all my old cassette tapes to see if I could find the Joe Evans Nashville Tape that he'd given me so many years ago. While going through the tapes I came across one I had gotten out of a dumpster at the property we managed. A prominent...

    Clay bar cleaning a new car finish

    I have a good friend who worked in collision repair and I was asking him about a good wax finish for a new car. He told me MOST new cars can benefit from being cleaned with a clay bar. He said some high end cars come from the factory entirely covered in plastic, but that most just ride in non...

    New Car Day

    Had to post a pic of our new car. Traded off the 08 Hyundai Sonota for this 19 Kia Sorento SUV. All wheel drive, 290 horse V6, 8 speed tranny, third row seat. We got 4,000 for our old car and they came down to right at 30K for this one. It's a pleasure to drive and we got all the things and more...

    Desert Island instument

    Unlike the other "Desert Island" questions, this one really is a desert island. You have no power. You're going to be there a long time. The guitar is the perfect acoustic instrument to have in a desolate place to provide musical satisfaction but there's the issue of strings mostly. So anything...

    Cars going up in price already?

    I follow new car prices pretty closely because I'm wanting to trade within the year. The prices on new, left over 17's and 18's has gone up a few thousand within the last couple weeks. It so happens I'm looking at Subaru's and Hyundai's. I wonder if everything import is going to jump the gun...

    The ax murderer population of this forum seems under represented

    I've been looking forward to today for about a week when I found out a forum member was coming through town and cared enough to want to stop and visit a minute. We had a bite and some great conversation and he was on down the highway. This is the third soul from around this great little...

    Team work!

    I can't contain my happiness that the boys and their coach have emerged from their would be tomb. I've cried tears of fear and of joy over this deal. I don't much care about the why's, what's and where's that put them there. I'm just happy that it turned out as it did. This was a shining...

    Unarguable comment: Being a kangaroo would be fun

    I watched the clip about the kangaroo that bounced across the football (soccer) field on the news. Is it even possible, even in the range of kangaroo emotions, that you could own the ability to bounce like that and be unhappy? Lucky ******* kangaroos...what's the possible down side?

    Why isn't vacation guitar rental a thing?

    I'm not the only one who doesn't want the hassle or hazard of flying with a guitar to babysit. But when I arrive in paradise and have no guitar l kick myself the whole time. I always wonder why popular vacation destinations don't capitalize on our guitar withdrawal? If I could rent a decent...

    Changing pads on abs brakes

    One time I read a post about changing pads and the necessity to open the bleeder when spreading the calipers because it can damage the abs sensors. I think it was rz350 or Bobby. Is this true? I did some surfing around and couldn't find anything specifically saying it would cause damage. I know...

    Dragging lyrics. Stop it...

    Man...I'm really sorry that you have to sing this song one more time...but can you PLEASE spare us the contempt you seem to have for it by starting each line a measure and a half late? What makes you think that a dragging drummer is unforgivable...but you try and squeeze three measures of left...

    JLD Bridge Doctor - I love it when something outperforms expectations

    I know we've talked about these trusses many times and I've yet to hear a negative review by someone who actually installed one, although I'm sure there are some guitars that didn't respond as well as others. I was very sad that, over the years, my Yamaha FG335 from 78 or 79 had developed a...

    Some of us are kind of desperate. We need answers...

    This is no longer just a comedic prop in an off topic guitar forum. I read another post that shows the huge number of us that are creeping up there, many retired and we still have no answer. I say this is unacceptable. This is a piece merchandise that was manufactured and sold in some kind of...

    What are "must see" areas at or near Lake Tahoe?

    We were pretty excited about finally seeing "The Big Island" this summer but mother nature has redirected us. I'm curious what everyone thinks are the best day trips around or near the lake? We will probably be staying in a cabin on the north shore just to embrace the lack of civilization...

    Finally got the guts to try it

    I'm not getting any younger. It's time to start knocking out that bucket list. I finally worked up the nerve to try something I've always wanted to...but was afraid to fail. That ends NOW!

    In appreciation of Tammie Jo Shultz and crew

    Like Sully's miraculous landing on the Hudson, the pilot of the damaged Southwest airplane managed to pull off a similar feat with her successful landing on one engine. Sully was quick to remind us all that, in both instances, the cooperation and cool heads of all crew were combined to prevent...

    Has anyone been able to get those Veri-Gauge string sets yet?

    From what I've heard they are dual gauge and come two ways: Heavy Neck/Light Bridge and Light Neck/Heavy Bridge. Here's from the ad: Those that like the easy fretting and bending of .007 gauge can have that slinky feel up on the neck while still booming out that huge tone of .013's down over...
