    Agreed I have found it very entertaining. Susan even likes it
  2. Welcome! You've come to a good place to find some like minded folks I would think. Looking forward to your post so kick back and enjoy! PS We love pics!!!
  3. I am not feeling so bad now as I have only been here for a couple of months
  4. Talk about commitment to your art! Alessandro Moreschi (1858) Moreschi was the late 19th century's most famous castrato—a male singer who undergoes castration before puberty and, as a result, retains a soprano or alto voice that becomes extraordinarily powerful as he develops the lung capacity and physical bulk of an adult. He was first soprano in the Sistine Chapel choir for 30 years and was the only castrato of the bel canto tradition to make solo sound recordings. What do modern music critics say about the singing featured in these recordings?
  5. Wow fantastic Karma!! Congrads Charlie-enjoy!!
  6. Smart Man there Trav! Wish Susan and I would have had the time and I would have sold everything (I mean EVERYTHING) before the move as moving it just screwed everything that was worth a damn and sucked up a lot of money along the way. Congrads on the new home though-where are you going to?
  7. Got it! Lots of shows have had this as a premise IE: Spocks Brain for one and as I have been watching Man in a High Castle I have been wondering if it might be a take on this concept also?
  8. The Brain in a Vat For millennia, philosophers have grappled with various versions of the "brain-in-a-vat" scenario. A thought experiment, it raises questions about the individual’s ability to know anything, since a brain suspended in a vat of life-sustaining liquid and connected to a computer that provides it with electrical impulses identical to those the brain normally receives would never be able to determine whether it is in a skull or a vat. What popular film trilogy is loosely based on this concept?
  9. Milton Bradley (1836) After working as a draftsman, Bradley introduced the first lithograph press to Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1860. He printed and sold a new parlor game, "The Checkered Game of Life." It was so profitable that he formed Milton Bradley and Company in 1864 to print games and manuals. In 1878, he reorganized his business as the Milton Bradley Company, which long retained its position as a leading American manufacturer of games and toys. In 1869, his press published the first US book on what topic?
  10. Susan and I have a laugh every time we go out for dinner as we figure they are all having a conversation via text with each other---soooo all the time!
  11. Mobile Phone Throwing Mobile phone throwing is a sport in which participants throw mobile phones and are judged on distance or technique. Started in Finland in 2000, competitive phone throwing has since spread to several other countries, with contests being held as far away as the UK and the US. Many of the events promote the recycling of old phones. In most national events, winners gain an entry to the world championship. How far have top competitors hurled their mobile phones?
  12. To audition speakers I would at least take take the M500 and a recording you are very familiar with for the auditions.
