    I knew a guy who was 90 & he’d sneak down to where I worked to smoke a Cigar everyday.. His wife didn’t think he smoked.. Yeah, right... He lived to be a 100...

    I know another Guy who never smoked & died of Lung Cancer at an early age...

    Theres so much we don’t know! We think we know, but, do we?

    Exactly!  A great deal of illness has to do with your family genetic makeup.

    Does anyone know if we can take showers yet or,

    should we just keep washing our hands?? 

    Yes, we can take showers now!  Just be sure to leave your mask on.

  3. I wouldn’t call Rap and Hip Hop Rock & Roll.  They’re not even close to MoTown or R & B.  It’s all a personal thing and generational thing.  I’ve made-up CDs with Cash, Dylan, The Stones, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Judy Collins, Ian Tyson, The Animals, Dave Clark Five,  Patsy Cline, Ronstadt, Hoyt Aston, Percy Sledge,  and Janis......and many, many others..   For me they all contributed to the R & R era and became icons for tens-of-millions of us.  And beyond that, I love the music.

  4. For myself, a question arises——-Why did it take them so long on Tina and Carole, and Rundgren as well?  Like so many things I once admired, even revered, all this HOF stuff is too much bullshit and too little substance.

  5. I’ve got a J200 and a J45TV.  Like the two guitars shown, both are easy-to-live-with.  It all depends on what each of us likes.   Each of my guitars has a little something that for me makes them a bit different from each other.  With my style and technique I don’t know that how loud a particular guitar is means a lot.  I just know that for me, each of my Gibsons fill a particular niche for my music.....and at any given time they each fill the same niche.

  6. Myself and a friend used to sing our own nastier version of “Baby, Let Me Bang Your Box”  at The University of Missouri.  It was a blast doing it in the student Union.  ...I’m assuming some folks remember Doug & The Hot Nuts.   They didn’t get a lot of radio time (especially with the title of this song), but they were pretty popular on the college circuit back then.

  7. My J45TV has a spot like that in the lacquer.   I bought it used and don’t know if it was there before or if I put it there.  Either way, it’s not that noticeable and it’s one-hell-of-a-guitar.........We’re all different and if you dig the guitar and having it corrected is important to you, then have it done.   Whatever you do, I hope the guitar turns-out the way you want it.

  8. I’d go with the 2014, because it’s a Hummingbird.  You can decide the pick guard issue later. ....The “pro” and “studio”  models are great instruments, but they’re not Hummingbirds, Doves, J45s, etc.

  9. Just my opinion, so this doesn’t necessarily make me right and someone else wrong——-But, I figure if you get a real nice guitar ( no matter the price) and it sounds good to you and you are bonding with it, then don’t worry about if it’s as loud, or sweet, or warm, or mellow as another Hummingbird, J45, D28, etc.   All this stuff related to sound, type of wood, playability is all dependent on the owner of the instrument and what they like.   Just enjoy your guitar!  If you like it, get yourself a good setup and have a blast.

  10. We’ve heard you play!  Definitely do not give him your guitar.......lol......Seriously though, I understand what you’re saying.  This guy is certainly a good picker (and so are you)....Several years ago I sat about four feet from Marty Stuart at a picnic table.  Just watching him move effortlessly all over the guitar neck made me wonder what the hell I was doing when I played...... Just use guys like this as inspiration.

  11. You see, my mule don't like people laughing. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it. ...

  12. I guess for the most part that I’m a pretty happy guy.  So long as my family is healthy and doing well, I’m good.  Don’t know that I have any pressing needs that I must fulfill at this time.  Guitars-wise, I still think that somewhere down the road I might look for a Martin Johnny Cash D35.  Beyond that, it would be great to see commonsense return to the world.

  13. If I could choose, it would be something similar to my dad’s passing.  He was 5 weeks from his 97th birthday, living in his own home, still sharp-as-a-tack and content.  He passed-away on a Sunday morning while watching the Western Channel on TV.  He loved watching Gunsmoke and John Wayne movies.  It was a massive stroke and he simply went to sleep.  He often said he didn’t want to spend weeks in a hospital and then linger for months in a nursing home.  He wanted to die in his own home and he pretty much went how he wanted it.  BTW, he’ll be gone one year on Monday, April 5.

  14. Why did Miley Cyrus drink a bottle of ketchup on the tonight show with Jay Leno?   She wanted all of America to know that  white, southern, country music fans were as stupid and redneck and inbred as they’re rumored to be.

  15. So, this gal is Christmas shopping and her husband is supposed to meet her, but he’s late.  She calls him to see where he’s at.  “You’re late, hon!  When you getting here?”

    Him:  “I’m sorry babe!  I got hung-up......  You remember that little jewelry shop where you saw that diamond necklace and I said that someday I’d buy it for you?”

    Her, as tears fill her eyes:  “OMG! Yes, I remember it!”

    Him:  “Well, I’m in the bar right next to it.”
