  1. Happy Birthday Rich, and have an awesome day! And thanks for your contributions to our music enjoyment🎼🎼🎼
  2. Welcome aboard dB_Junkie, looks like you are already afflicted with what we call OCCD. I lived in Spring for about 6 years in the mid/late ‘90’s. Nice area.
  3. I’m interested in the m1.0t. I think I have most of the parts to Mk II opt 002 it. damn occd got me again😒 PM sent
  4. For 6 years, ending last January, I worked for one of the worlds largest corporations. Emails contained th phrase “working in silos”. WTF does that mean!? We had to Google it. One particularly bright corporate lemming attached the phrase “we want all to be Happy shining people”. If you look for the video of REM’s apparent hit by the same name, you will find there is a large group of people having fun, singing and dancing in front of a rolling background. At one point, they graciously provide water to a guy behind the screen on a bicycle who is making that screen move. That guy is us, the ones making the world go around.
  5. Whew! That was close. Thank you for saving from the grip of OCCD! ...I need another amp on the shelf. I’m sure of it...🤩
  6. This appeared when I stopped for fuel Saturday. 200001, an Old Odyssey. (My 2002 Honda Odyssey daily driver) Almost time for another timing belt & water pump replacement...
  7. Making lots of sawdust. Starting the next phase of the new kitchen. Found a guy on CL who is selling sheets of walnut veneer plywood for half of retail. He has more than I need for the whole project, and I have the cash on hand! Our sons will be by at some point, so grilling some steaks will be in the cards.
  8. +1! Thanks to all who fought through the issues to get the site back up! Yea, I went through some withdrawals, and peered into the 'other site' for relief. And thanks to Jim for fixing my login on JCS. Again, just want to say THANKS! What you guys do on this site is greatly appreciated.
  9. Nice offer Jim! Unfortunately my disposable cash account has been bleeding like a severed limb in a Monty Python movie scene. Otherwise I would be there already for an in-person pickup.😎
  10. I drive a plain white 2002 Honda Odyssey. 198000 miles as of today. Getting a little rust in the usual spots. Who cares. Comfortable, drives great and long since paid for. Full ADS sound system I put in it when I bought it 10 years ago. I have no reason to replace it. Deb drives a 2000 Accord coupe V-6 with around 185000 miles. Damn thing looks and drives like new. Just got a new company car - 2019 Nissan Rogue. Not impressed. Miserably uncomfortable.
  11. What a Wonderful Christmas gift to someone. NOT in, one of my AL-III’s has developed a buzz and is not in use for the foreseeable future.
  12. I'll chime in with the latest in my story too... For the past 17 years + I've been in Medical Imaging Systems service, X-Ray, CT, peripherals. 12 years ago I hired into Wisconsin's largest hospital system. 6 years ago, they outsourced us all, and I have been working for the contractor since. Last spring, the hospital system "merged" with another from IL. In June it was decided they were going to cancel the remaining 4 years of the service contract. So, I have applied for my job for the 3rd time. I was able to negotiate a nearly 10% raise out of it though. I received my layoff notice from the contractor yesterday. I knew it was coming but it still hit me kinda wierd. I'll begin my "new job" in January, having gone full circle. Although only 3 of the 7 we had in my area decided to return. Should be an interesting year...
  13. I'll tiptoe my way in and add my $.02 on the matter of PC run amok You cannot have highs without lows, Happiness without sadness, joy without disappointment, hills without valleys, life without death. If all the 'lows' are taken out of life, how can you recognize the 'highs? If I'm not allowed to tell someone how I really feel, two have been slighted. My rights to express myself are diminished, The person I am talking to does not get to know the truth. Seems sad to me.
