    We made it into Northern Ireland today. Staying in LondonDerry tonight and got to walk on the walls of the city. Cannons still here. Our tour guide for today was great. You could really see that he is very passionate about sharing the history of Derry. Good and bad. It was an emotional tour, to say the least.

    It's a shame that so much blood is shed all over the world in the name of religion.

    It's very blackish, that thing.

    I have to admit something...we bought it in Concord NH :# Don’t be mad that i finally made it that far north without letting you know. SO CLOSE!!

    Apparently these vehicles are the 2019 “IT” vehicle and they are flying off the lots. Had no idea until every dealer we went to in a 30 mile driving radius of Northbridge either being sold out, or lower models. Soooo...we took the 80 mile hike to Concord. We overpaid, got crap for a trade-in, and all around i hate car dealers. BUT, my wife got the car she deserves, so she is happy.

    She wanted white, but once she saw that vehicle, she was sold. Then she spent 2 hours convincing me while a second couple waited for hours to hear whether or not we were going to buy it. We ruined their day... ;)

    Nice looking rig! I like black as a (lack of) color choice but since this area I live in has the second most intense sunlight of anywhere in the US next to Death Valley, black is not an option.

    My 3rd guitar and first nylon strung... a 1965 España guitar (I can't find a specific model number.) My great grandpa gave it to me after he found it and tried to put metal strings on it because he doesn't like nylon strings. that is why there is a second metal bridge at the bottom. I decided to just use the new bridge and put nylons back on, it sounds great and plays very nicely! Not to mention that it is beautiful. :)

    Upon a brief Google, I think it's an España SL-11. :)

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Yes, much of the country (US) does as well. But in and around B-more, they're lightning bugs. Interstingly the biochemistry of their light production mechanism (luciferin/luciferase) was worked out by McElroy, Seliger, and colleagues at my (and Matt Polk's) alma mater back when I was a lad.

    That's EXACTLY the ad that made me buy Sony Trinitrons twice. People couldn't believe the pictures on my TVs. back then! They were Amazing! The XBRs that is.

    The 32” hi def flat screen I got back in 01-02 was absolutely stunning. Loved that tv except it was so darn heavy.

    People nowadays can't lift that weight. TV makers easily saw it coming a long time ago.

    We're still CRT here -- not Sony, though.
    I do agree, the Sony Trinitrons made for nice lookin' tellys.

    Long lasting too. Mom used her 32" without any issues from the 80s until a couple of years ago!

    Pretty sure ours is an '84 model (hand me down from my parents, long, long ago). We don't do much in the way of TV watching (perhaps needless to say).

    Someone left this at my door while I was out briefly this evening. LOL
    It's only 6/10 box and vinyl, but I appreciate the gesture. :-)
    Maybe they'd prefer to hear it over the CCR I had moderately cranked earlier today.

    What Bert Kaempfert track(s) is/are on it? It'd be very cool to have Swingin' Safari on an LP :)
