    I ate some rattle snake when I was in San Antonio TX back in my Army days. Came back from a flight and a couple of the guys killed the rattler and skind it. It was still moving with no skin on it...kinda freaky... they cooked it up with a bunch of C-rations. Couldn't really tell what it tasted like cuz of those nasty C-rations. But I did try it.... Needed some of OT's hot sauce outta "likes" ....... till tomorrow MKP :-)

    When I was about 16, i had the bright idea to catch rattlesnakes and sell the venom to the local hospital. I was going to be the king of antivenom. I kept up my end of the deal; but, the hospital told me that they buy their antivenom from a laboratory. I said, "what am i going to do with this rattlesnake then?" P.S. Don't leave a rattlesnake in the trunk of your father's car. It will make him mad when he wants to get to his golf clubs.

    Toolshed amps, that is. As promised, I just wanted to give an update on my system. I purchased a pair of black Heresy 3's back in November to pair with an old Marantz 2270 in a 11'x11' mancave. That combo sounded pretty good but a bit harsh up top. After reading this forum, I realized that tubes were the way to smooth that treble out. I noticed that a forum member, Toolshed Amps, was held in high regard. After an e-mail (or 20) I commissioned Matt to build me a SET amp and preamp. Well, the end result is stunning! Custom zebrawood and wenge exterior, polished metal top/front plates with a custom transformer-cover art that I asked for. The volume knobs even go to 11! I'm not a technical guy but all I know is that I just don't want to turn this rig off! Soundwise, that harsh upper treble is tamed and the bass is TIGHT. The glorious midrange is silky smooth and overall the soundstage is 3D...wall to wall. I couldn't be happier. I will try to attach a few pics. Thanks to all for the guidance and allowing me to brag a bit.

    Hi there. I live in the Netherlands. Been using Klipsch for a long time now. My first pair of proper speakers were Klipsch RF25 which I still use today. Love seeing setups of others so wanted to show mine. I have a 9.2 / 5.2.4 Klipsch setup that features: Klipsch RF25 fronts Klipsch RC35 center Klipsch RB61 rears Klipsch RB51 front height Klipsch RB51 rear height Klipsch R115 dual subwoofer setup Receiver is a Marantz SR7011, BD5007 for Blu Rays. This is in a dedicated home theater room two seating rows. The back row is elevated. No proper photos of the back. Still have to carpet the elevation. Verzonden vanaf mijn iPhone met Tapatalk

    I brush my teeth and hair. My teeth are okay but my hair is falling out. It's falling out from the top of my head but is making up for it by growing wild out of my nose and ears.

    Wouldn't it be nice to stumble on a yard sale with all Mac and Marantz gear in mint condition and the owner says "$10 and it's all yours" "oh and I have a bunch of those glass tubes still in the boxes I'll throw in".

    Talk about feeling the wrath of nature. This is my brothers garage. As you can see two massive white oaks took it down last night. Since this photo we have cut the tree from the door and have been carefully removing his woodworking tools. At least the ones we can get to.

    Is there any chance you could actually give someone a break with regard to a posting like this? Perhaps they don't know what is expected to be able to sell, perhaps they are young and inexperienced, perhaps elderly, could be anything. Ask for price, condition, photos, etc. and see what happens. It's honestly becoming rather annoying that upon seeing a "common format" or similar that the poster is jumped on. Let's have the forum admin deal with stuff like that.

    Afternoon Gang Restfull day. Rv cabinet and window sealing work continues. Bloody Mary time, Smokin Marys with a touch of baker Bros to kick it up a notch. 0roville Dam water level has now dropped 50'+, and they think that will handle the storms we have coming in NOW. Reserves are standing down, so NO more road trips north for me for now. Oldtimer has just recived the Latest bloody mary care package, so we shall see if he chimes in here and his thoughts on Calif's mix's. Sent him a couple for helping me out last week obtaining 17K Goal. "Likes" I needed a few, and there were not many people on the forum that day. I'll make the same offer when i get near 18K.

    But he does look good for his age, to me he does not look 68, could be the lack of real martinis keeping him young ? But I really think it's the ladies and trying to keep up with them, either way he's doing good, don't know if I will hold out another 9 years the way I take care of myself ? In honer of his long thread CC&C

    Hello friends of mine. Mark, think you are onto something. Not new news, however it has been shown in trials that lsd given to patients in a controlled study. Cure rate for alcoholics is spectacular, even after one trip. Think it would take me a few, trips that is... Happy Birthday @Tarheel !!! And many more. We were following the weather and week before last a pine limb got Nan's electric line again so, went over Thursday week ago to survey situation. Power still on and crew came about 5 days later. Yes it was locally widespread. Hope all are well. Just been busy... is all I can say for myself...
