    Why is Time-Life still pitching CD Collections?

    I like to own physical music media and am not a fan of digital downloads simply because I don't trust that my ownership rights to my music purchases are guaranteed to persist over time.

    I have an early 1960s Brunswick Gold Crown I that is scheduled to be professionally re-assembled on the 30th of this month. We are finally finishing our basement remodeling project. Can't wait. This is what it looked like when it was last assembled at our previous house over 10 years ago:

    remember stereo components?

    I still have my Boston Acoustic A-100s that I bought in the 1980s and a few years ago I picked up a Fisher MT-6224 turntable to play the vinyl collection I have amassed since I was a teenager.

    The NCAA should have cancelled the entire season from the get-go like they did the baseball season in 2020. This whole season has been nothing more than what should be considered a "scrimmage year" due to the pandemic.

    My next house (if it ever happens) will likely be built with SIPs. With SIPs a sizable house can be completely roughed in about 2 days (not to mention that they are extremely energy efficient in terms of insulation).
