  1. Weird... If you click on the image to e-x-p-a-n-d it, it becomes right side up.
  2. The first album I ever bought was "Glad All Over". Before that I had bought just a couple of 45's. Time marches on I guess. In too short a time the 60's musicians will be gone, all that will remain will be the recordings. [:'(]
  3. One of the original bad boys of rock . . . http://bostonherald.com/entertainment/music/music_news/2013/02/troggs_singer_reg_presley_dies_cancer_71
  4. "If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all..." Please send me all your $2 bills []
  5. This is a pretty nice website with a lot of pictures, manuals, and other info on old power tools... http://vintagemachinery.org/home.aspx
  6. Hopefully my son's school (TCU) will have something to say about that . . . []
  7. Happy Halloween... (CBS News) Superstorm Sandy overwhelmed sewer systems, pouring tens of millions of gallons of raw sewage into waterways along the East Coast. Health departments in several states are now warning residents about tap water . . . http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505263_162-57542888/post-sandy-sewage-raises-water-safety-fears/?tag=cbsnewsHardNewsFDArea;fdmodule
  8. I personally had a Panasonic that looked just like that as a teenager. I'm not sure about the model number though. The first Stereo my family had was made by Columbia. We probably got it sometime around 1960ish. It was two large matching cabinets, I would say about 26" wide by 36" tall by 18" deep. The cabinet tops hinged open, one cabinet had the turntable inside and the controls, the other cabinet had storage for records in the top. The cabinet with the turntable had a tube amp mounted at the bottom near the floor. Both cabinets were open at the back, and each had about 5 or 6 speakers mounted on the front baffle. The largest was probably about a 12". In the period from about 1964 to 1970 all the kids in the neighborhood used to come over to my house to listen whenever a new and exciting album came out. Most memorable was "Are You Experienced?". It seems that my parents weren't home when someone brought that over.. I'm sure the neighbors heard it too . . . [6] I wish I could find a picture of that old Columbia . . .
  9. So you just see black and red caps (like the top left black and lower right red) on all four connectors? If so, just gently pry out one black cap and one red cap with a small knife. Then you can plug in your banana plugs. But if you're saying there are no black and red caps, just metal, then I don't know the answer.
  10. Is there no little plastic plug in the end of the female binding post (where the male banana plug would go)?
  11. Just curious... With an older plan where you're grandfathered in (as I am with my Verizon plan with unlimited data), if you buy a new 4G phone and have it activated does it work at 4G speeds? Or do they somehow limit you to the 3G speeds of your old grandfathered plan?
  12. Ouch... which provider? I pay $216/month for 3 smartphones (original Droids) with Verizon for unlimited data, unlimited texting, and 700 minutes shared talk. But calls to other cellphones don't count against plan minutes, so we never come close to using the minutes we share. We go way over 1gb of data though.. even on my wife's phone with her facebook stuff (at 3G speeds). I imagine your phone must do 4G (10 times faster?) and you probably could hit 1gb pretty quickly?
  13. And if you live within range of broadcast stations, you can hook an antenna to the HDTV as well. HDTV via OTA is "plug and play" also . . . []
  14. On what list? There are multiple areas with houses still flooded, where people have not been able to return to their homes. The national media NEVER gets the story right in any disaster situation.
