    I grew up with MASH on in the house - it’s just one of those cultural icons that’s always with you, no matter how old you get.

    I was never a Frank Burns fan, and I thought the show took a big step up when Charles came on. BUT, I always preferred Trapper to BJ. I would have loved a season with Charles and Trapper at the same time…

    I'll put in a good word, sort of, for Major Burns.

    My Damaged JBL L100 Century midrange fix.

    I priced some out today. 80.00 for a new replacement that's supposed to be good.

    290.00 for a pr. of originals.

    I noticed that all the paper was still hanging on so I glued a pc. of fine fabric to the back. It looked good at first but I saw a zit size flaw and went to fix it. I created a snowball but it's really nicer in person than the pics make it out to be bad.

    It should be OK.

    I also prepped the 1 damaged woofer for the coming surrounds.

    I thought I had a bad wire or cross-over in one of my JBL L100s.

    I went out tonight after dinner to see if I could find the problem. I didn't hear any sound at first. I pulled the tweeter out and then I could hear sound. I wiggled the wires and still, it played just fine. I put it back in.

    Now, to re-foam the 1 woofer and then buy mesh and grill fronts. I'm going to ask you guys your choice of grill cover in a week or 2.

    The Cerwin Vegas are playing great and look pretty good too.

    The JBL L100's "cabinets" are looking great and are just a couple of small jobs to getting them sounding great.

    Quite the gifts from my old friend who doesn't like to fix speakers.

    Steven Tyler needs to stop spending time with Caitlyn Jenner....

    Jon Bon Jovi needs to stop spending time with Bill Bixby, Kevin Cronin needs to stop spending time with Phyllis Diller, and Ozzy needs to stop spending time with Zsa Zsa Gabor's corpse. :p

    So -- we have this Hammacher Schlemmer oak tool chest/workbench combination.
    It was Mrs. H's grandfather's and dates to ca. 1926. It is a pretty remarkable piece of furniture, and after some restoration when we moved to MA (a story in itself, for some other time), it's been in our living rooms in MA and now in NH.

    Our son "found it" today on archive.org :)

    We do not have the avec tools version, unfortunately. :|

    I find mineral crystals fascinating

    I was a rock/gem collector in my youth.

    I wanted to be a geologist/gemologist when I grew up. I actually have a big bag of different rocks and minerals with a nice laminated chart with info on a lot of stones. Got it at a yard sale or goodwill years ago for cheap.

    I was REALLY amazed at petrified wood. I held a big chunk every once in a while and thought how can wood turn to stone? I think the little rock Cross's that were found on some river/creek shores way back when fascinated me too. Then there is Iron Pyrite. Fool's Gold. Love it! I have a few sculptures that use it. I gave these type of sculptures for gifts one year and then again years later.

    Those Amythyst Cathedrals made from huge geodes amaze me too.

    Opals are special to me too. The ones with a lot of sharp colors. Not the blurry/fuzzy ones.
    My Mom bought a huge opal and diamond ring at a yard sale for .50. There was a beautiful huge Opal as the center stone. Lots of red "fire" and many other colors too. We just watched the "Opal Hunters" show on TV the other night. It's a lot of hunting for so little Opal finds. Those people are persistent and work in some of the worst environments on earth. They are TOUGH people.

    About 30 years ago, I bought my mom a med. sized geode ( about 4" round and flattened a bit.) from a HUGE rock/gem show in Raliegh NC>. . The geode was cracked open and 3/4 of it remained. You could see a big opal crystal inside it with great fire and colors. I don't know what ever became of it. :s It was really cool. I don't know if Opals are found in geodes but this looked legit and I'm pretty sure the seller had MANY more bigger and smaller ones there too.

    I have quartz crystal pillars and clusters displayed in my living-room entertainment unit. Been there for 30 years maybe. ;)

    Of course, I would've thought the product would have been called the IKEA Spın̈n̈.
