    new to site...

    Welcome to the Carversite. I read your comments re: posting jpegs and after Hashy’s response I see you already started a thread to get that post count and reputation points headed north. You are going to find this site to be a most valuable resource with members that are going to be able to guide you through most anything you are going to encounter. You’ll also find a lot of members that have similar experiences before joining the fold. I was a long time Marantz fan before converting to the Carver community and it didn’t take me long to dump a bunch of high end Vintage Marantz gear in favor of Carver Components. In any event, welcome aboard - Enjoy the ride.

    Weird headline of the day

    What a concept - think about it - anyone arrested for whatever could identify themself as a young teenager thereby qualifying for a hearing in Juvenile court instead of Circuit or District Court. That equates to a sealed proceeding and no record regardless of actual age and any degree of guilt. Not a bad deal for the wayward. I would expect that more than a few politicians would love to tout how this has reduced crime in their communities.

    Do you know any jokes?

    Wisdom from Larry the Cable Guy COWS Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

    Do you know any jokes?

    While walking down the street a Senator was tragically hit by a car and died. His soul arrives in Heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. "Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts you see, so we're not sure what to do with you." "No problem just let me in," says the Senator. "Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity." "Really?, I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven," says the Senator. "I'm sorry, but we have our rules." And with that St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people. They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne. Also present is the devil who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises. The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in Heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit Heaven." So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and before he realizes it the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns. "Well then you've spent a day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now choose your eternity." The Senator reflects for a minute before he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean Heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in Hell." So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell. Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above. The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders. "I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?" The devil smiles at him and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted." Vote wisely in November 2018.

    I’ll Sarah was in the fertilized egg business. She had several hundred young pullets and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs. She kept records and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced. This took a lot of time, so she bought some tiny bells and attached them to her roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so she could tell from a distance which rooster was performing. Now, she could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells. Sarah's favourite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen but, this morning she noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all! When she went to investigate, she saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. To Sarah's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job, and walk on to the next one. Sarah was so proud of old Butch, she entered him in a Show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges. The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the "No Bell Peace Prize" they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well. Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention? Vote carefully in the next election. You can't always hear the bells. LITTLE RALPHY ON MATH A teacher asks her class, 'If there are 5 birds sitting on a fence and you shoot one of them, how many will be left?' She calls on little Ralphy. He replies, 'None, they will all fly away with the first gunshot.' The teacher replies, 'The correct answer is 4, but I like your thinking..' Then little RALPHY says, 'I have a question for YOU. There are 3 women sitting on a bench having ice cream: One is delicately licking the sides of the triple scoop of ice cream. The second is gobbling down the top and sucking the cone. The third is biting off the top of the ice cream. Which one is married?' The teacher, blushing a great deal, replied, 'Well, I suppose the one that's gobbled down the top and sucked the cone.' To which Little RALPHY replied, 'The correct answer is 'the one with the wedding ring on,' but I like your thinking.' LITTLE RALPHY ON MATH Little RALPHY returns from school and says he got an F in arithmetic. 'Why?' asks the father? 'The teacher asked 'How much is 2x3,'' I said '6', replies RALPHY. 'But that's right!' says his dad. 'Yeah, but then she asked me 'How much is 3x2?'' 'What's the fucking difference?' asks the father. 'That's what I said!' LITTLE RALPHY ON ENGLISH Little RALPHY goes to school, and the teacher says, 'Today we are going to learn multi-syllable words, class. Does anybody have an example of a multi-syllable word?' RALPHY says 'Mas-tur-bate..' Miss Rogers smiles and says, 'Wow, little RALPHY, that's a mouthful.' Little RALPHY says, 'No, Miss Rogers, you're thinking of a blowjob.' LITTLE RALPHY ON GETTING OLDER Little RALPHY was sitting on a park bench munching on one candy bar after another. After the 6th one a man on the bench across from him said, 'Son, you know eating all that candy isn't good for you. It will give you acne, rot your teeth, and make you fat.' Little RALPHY replied, 'My grandfather lived to be 107 years old.' The man asked, 'Did your grandfather eat 6 candy bars at a time?' Little RALPHY answered, 'No, he minded his own fucking business. I LOVE Little RALPHy

    Funny Memes

    Probably needs a pierced ring offset just to the right of the bottom fold and a small rose tattoo outside the fur about half way down the left side. Now you’ve got a member of that pink hat platoon. Hillary’s Harem?

    Once again, Carver Camaraderie comes through. Very noble gesture Steve and congratulations to everyone who voiced their support for Dennis Miller and by proxy, all of the techs. We are a lucky bunch to have this kind of expertise available.

    Very well deserved. DaddyJT pretty much epitomizes the spirit of brotherhood at The Carversite. I am still grateful for all the work he put in on those CDs and for a guy who had all of about a half dozen posts at the time, I couldn’t believe his generosity and welcoming spirit. That probably pales in comparison to all of his other selfless offerings but it sure made my day. Congratulations Mark - It looks like your brand of citizenship runs in the family too.

    Very thoughtful and generous Charlie. I’m not in as I already have an I-Pad but someone is going to be very happy. Now we need another update on Rolland and that army of amplifiers. 😉

    Very nice system. So, now you’ve started hitting the rack before 7:00 PM and your wife can’t get you out of bed before Ten O’Clock the next morning. Be careful - that gives her a lot of time to take advantage of you. 💘

    I wish you all the best in your endeavors. Get a good accountant who knows tax laws and understands that for starters, solder costs $397.26 an ounce. No more dinners out on the town with The Raven, Uncle Sam likes seeing those customer names on your restaurant receipts. Best of Luck - Enjoy the Ride

    Thank you, it’s most appreciated. Hell, I just enjoy hanging out here with the hope that some of this wealth of knowledge will eventually rub off on me.
