    Riley used to be all alert and stuff; 7 months later it's all about naps. Smart dog as she learned what I do on the weekends. Takes her about 1.2 seconds to go from teats up on the floor to whichever door sounds a motion alarm; solicitors don’t stay at the door long. Average growth approx. 10 lbs / month vet estimates 110-120 lbs at adulthood. Mom is a show entrant and dad is police dog.

    My sister is a nationally certified interpreter for the deaf (which ain't easy...), and she'll be interpreting for candidate Pete Buttugieg tomorrow at a fundraiser. She has worked with Maya Angelou, Jimmy Carter and others in the past, so this is another really cool gig for her.

    I have purchased several items from out of state sellers, and I always use paypal. Even when disputes, such as damaged goods from shipping, I've always gotten my money back. I'm sure I'll get burned someday, but I've been good so far.

    You might change your mind once you hear the Cornwall IV. When I listened to it at Chief Boneheads Class I did not expect how significant the audible improvements are on so many levels as well as the new Heresy IV are as well. I honestly am amazed at how much Roy has reduced the box coloration that all previous models had when compared to fully horn loaded models like the La Scalas, Belles or Klipschorns. Whether a loudspeaker is 2-way or 3-way doesn’t really matter in the end but instead what the total loudspeaker brings to sound reproduction and IMHO the new Cornwall IV is going to kick-*** at twice it’s price point... 😄 miketn

    We had a great time in Hope! Thanks so much to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen. It was great to see folks we hadn't seen in years, and to also make some new friends. I decided it was time I got my own profile here since I have loved Klipsch for almost 50 years! The very first time I heard the Khorns I was at my boyfriends house and Stairway to Heaven was playing on an LP. His Dad was an avid music lover and had a top of the line system. I was totally blown away! I wound up marrying that boyfriend (Rigma) and we have been collecting Klipsch from the very beginning. I've never really understood the term WAF as it sure as heck does not apply to me! I look forward to being a part of the group. Becky (MZKITTY)

    I have settled on a morning coffee ,and I don't feel the need to look any farther. Its a local place called TJs Roasters. I get a bag of their Ethiopia beans and a bag of their Guatemala beans and mix half and half in the grinder. This to me is perfect. Also the wife found this at TJ Maxx, and its works well for storing beans. Push the botton on top and it gets the the air out and seals the container. Its OXO brand. https://tjsroaster.com/shop

    When I was on active duty, we had to take turns doing public events. One event, it was HOT and the ceremony was LONG. I was holding the American Flag and my buddy next to me has a rifle. He whispers that he’s going to pass out. I tell him to bend his knees and hang in there, that the ceremony has to be almost over. He didn’t last much longer. he broke rank and went and sat down, opting to do that rather than pass out. This old man, WWII era, comes out of the audience, grabs the rifle and joins our formation. That was so cool. To see someone with so much pride that he’s motivated to do that was really cool to experience. People can do some really neat things when they accept that there are things bigger than themselves.

    Finally finished this project. I've posted on this in Tech Mod section on the build. I totally removed all finish on these, cut off the front 1/2" edge that surrounds the grill frame, installed neo magnet on the front to mate with the magnets I installed on the original grill frame (with new cane grill cloth), veneered the fronts, sides, and tops with aircraft grade quartered figured etimoe veneer. I applied 6 coats of wipe on poly satin then wet sanded and applied wax with 0000 steel wool for a very smooth finish. I installed a front to back brace with 3 screws on the back panel, installed new Bob Crites 1228 woofers, new Sonicap caps on the mids and tweets, new electrolytic parallel cap on the woofers, installed foam sealant tape on the back screw strips. I have two emblems that come with these which I haven't attached yet so the new owner can do so with his/her choice of glue/tape. Consecutive serial numbers 139X001 and 139X002 The grill frames automatically attach when you put them on the fronts. Components are Crites 1228 woofers, K52H mid drivers and square maGNET K-77 tweets. Someone needs to give these a new home!!! Perfect Christmas gift! Will post more photos after I resize them. $750.00. I'm located in Little Rock. Thanks. Longdrive03 Longdrive03

    We just finished watching the PBS Ken Burns Country Music documentary and enjoyed it immensely, way more than expected. The wife (who was reluctant at first) described the episodes as “compelling.” It was a reminder of the all too often link between artistic genius and excesses regarding alcohol, drugs, sex, etc. The world would be a poorer place without the suffering of artists from van Gogh to Van Halen.

    That's how he responded, with generic references but never called the Yamaha 5000S by that name. Scam. +++ UPDATE: Buyer/scammer has not contacted me in two days. All contact stopped when I demanded cash and to meet at the local police store.

Maples are dropping their leaves here in the hood but when the neighbor's oaks start I'm gonna get them ALL blowing across the street into my yard. Can't wait! hahaha Soooo, until then I'll just hit the coffee and relax.

    The Cornwall IV horn flares are so good looking that it should have a see-through/sheer grill cloth option.

    i used to get the best burritos at this joint where all the employees spoke Spanish. I was able to order and was given a number (i was ordering to go). I was hoping for a number 1 -10 because i know those in Spanish; but i ended up something 147. So, the very next number that they called, i walked up and gave the lady my ticket. She looks at it and laughs, shaking her head “no.” My ex thought i was stupid; but i told her that when our order was ready they’d tell us instead of calling a number. Sure enough, when my order was ready, she just pointed at me. That worked every time. Used to get the best Birria there.

    My late-Uncle was at Normady in WWII. He told of the landing craft doors opening and immediate enemy fire. When i saw Saving Private Ryan and the same thing happened as he had described, it was chilling. He had basically described the beginning of that movie to me back in the early-mid 70s. When i was a kid his stories were so exciting that i remember saying, “I hope there is a war when i turn 18.” At about age 15 or 16 his stories changed and i remember saying, “I sure hope that i never have to go to war.” Some of the things he went through and witnessed are simply mind-boggling. I remember sitting in his living room asking him how close was he to an enemy shooting at him. He said, “maybe here to across the street,” which was probably about 50 feet away. Look out your front window ... i Can’t imagine being on one side of the street and having an army on the other side shooting at me. I told him that i’d just walk alongside a tank and he said that they avoided the tanks as much as possible because they drew the heavy artillery fire. He’d rather take his chances against a man with a rifle.

    Good deal on the mower! 👍 Forecasted high of 85 Degrees F here in the desert today. Hotter here today than the hottest summer day this year back north. I can see the residue of snow ❄️ in my home cameras back in the GWN. I fully serviced my snowblower and parked it in the garage awaiting my return. My Canada 🇨🇦 Goose parka in the front closet. Wb

    My new, previously owned K-402 horn(s). Just sitting on some rolling carts in the garage. The included passive networks are crossed a bit high and therefore not exactly correct for using with the K-horn bass bin network, but it sounds very impressive anyway. Will probably active tri-amp these, after they settle into a fixed location. Edit: I looked up the crossover specs for the intended cinema application and it appears that the passive crossover on these K-402 will work okay with the K-horn bass bin.

    I put the ol' cd changer on "Play All" and this comes on. Never even knew I had it......and wish I didn't! Sounds like Jerry Lewis meets Carol Chaning.
