    Those birds can't possibly understand how close Thanksgiving dinner is!

    Great picture. We even have similar "herds" of wild turkeys down here on the NH seacoast this year.

    from the archives -- when my son first got his first DSLR (a Nikon D40*), he humored me by - at my request - taking some photos of vacuum tubes doing... well... what they do. I've shown most of his photos from that session many times before, but I don't think I've ever posted this one.

    This is a Sovtek 2A3 -- very different internal structure to the Chinese 2A3 tubes.

    see more of my son's photography at his photoblog: icouldbeahero.blogspot.com

    * His D40 review, from 2009: http://icouldbeahero.blogspot.com/2009/07/june-11-2009.html

    The D40 bricked in 2011: http://icouldbeahero.blogspot.com/2011/11/6.html
    We got it fixed by Nikon for $120 or something like that... as of today it's still going strong and lives at my house with a long lens on it in the front hall closet -- always ready to grab for wildlife shots. Most of the critter shots posted to this thread (since 2012 at least) were taken with the aforementioned D40.

    Go get that Chord Hugo from Halen and it might just cure that obsession with vinyl. :wink:

    The dudes at acoustic sounds who live for vinyl said the same thing almost...their in love with the Chord!

    but Vinyl is Therapeutic! its the whole process of cleaning, flipping babysitting :) and relaxing

    I've gotta say...

    the phrase "UGGs for Legos"

    ...packs a lotta "g's" in a small lexicographical space.

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:
    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....
