  1. Jack, Changing from 0.10's to 0.09's isn't going to change much, I suspect. The easier and cheaper thing to do, in this trouble-shooting experiment, is to remove one spring. See what that does for you, good sir. 🙂
  2. This only just occurred to me. When you write your songs and song lyrics, what are your left-and-right-limits for expressions of emotion, either positive or negative? And further, are your song-writing ambitions limited by that which is the socially-accepted norm of pop radio? And if so, is that even a relevant convention in this life and these times?

  6. It took me awhile to figure out what you guys were talking about. Courses Of Action? Coat Of Arms, maybe. Change Of Address.....? Oh yeah. Certificate Of Authenticity. Whooo boy. 😑
  7. The Chinese Manned Space Engineering office reports that it "landed in the Indian Ocean at a point 72.47° East and 2.65° North".
  8. Exactly. We would go from, "What's for supper, Grandma?" to "What's for supper?" "Grandma." 😏
  9. I played folk guitar for the New Christy Menstruals. It was bloody awful. 😬
  10. This lady takes her seat on the airliner next to a nicely-dressed gentleman, and straps herself in. He turns and inquires, "Traveling for business, or pleasure?" She responds, "Pleasure. I'm headed to a convention of nymphomaniacs." She then turned and smiled. "My name is Trudy, and I'm very much attracted to men who are US educated Germans living in Norway whose favorite bands play Fender guitars and amps, but who still prefer Gibsons and Marshalls. What's your name?" He cleared his throat, and tipped his hat, "Well, ma'am, my name is Helmut Johansen, but my friends from Geo
  11. It's settled then. I'd rather have yours than Les's anyway. 😗
  12. I was stationed in Zwitzerland for awhile. Never zaw a Zager guitar there. I did enjoy having a nice zägerwurst for lunch though, followed by shots of Zägermeister. Okay, I'm gonna zchut up now. 😑
