    Best female vocals, looking for suggestions

    A few of my all time favorites. Judy Collins (I wanted to be a groupie for Judy), Deborah Harry, Joan Jett, and Roberta Flack. If you only want listen to just one, then click on the Roberta Flack video - I can't think of any better love song.

    Greatest Albums of All Time

    That's an empty threat - Thebes doesn't have any hair to spare.

    SIGNING OFF

    I don't check in here enough but I'm sorry to hear of your departure and that I'll never know the story behind your forum name. Also, if you don't plan to use them, could I have all of your "likes"?

    So Long Sew-Ups

    I think that the Italian steel framed bikes from the 70's mark one of the high points in bike evolution. That Legnano and the Ciocc are very cool. Looking at the frame geometry of the Legnano, the center-pull brakes, the rack braze-ons, the cassette, and the high flange hubs, I'm thinking that your bike is a fast touring model and would be great just as it is for road use. When you wear out the orange ones, tan walled tires would look great or maybe white. I put some white walls on a mid 90's De Rosa I restored a few years. I also built up a set of Ambrosio rims for tubulars (sew-ups) for it and honestly can't tell much difference from good clinchers.

    Not "great photography" but I saw this small herd of elk about a mile up the road from the house yesterday. One of these might ease those grocery bills.

    He did know a lot of interesting people in London.

    Here's shot from the back deck this morning. It might be April 23rd where you live but here it's January 113th.

    Here are some more photos from China. Guizhou is a beautiful province and easy to photograph. Here are a few shots from the rural areas. The small houses on the hillsides are hundreds of years old. Leaky plumbing?? I don't know the story behind this. A few street scenes from a small Miao village (the Miao one of the Chinese minorities native to SW China.) Huangguoshu Waterfall - one of the largest in China. There is a walkway behind the fall about 3/4 of the way up where you can get really close to the cascading water. A smaller waterfall or two. A last shot from the Great Wall near Beijing.

    Bruce, your shot above reminded of one I took at a Buddhist monastery near Guyang in the Guizhou Province. It was quite a climb up there.
  11. I don't want to sound like a show-off but I can still skip. Even if I couldn't, I would feel too awful about it - there are some pretty special forms of adult entertainment that are way way more gratifying than skipping down the sidewalk. YMMV.

    I went to grad school in Tucson. Moved there after working in Alaska and just about died at first. Everything there wants to hurt you - it's all either sharp and pointy or poisonous. First time walking through the desert, I swore colla cactus balls could actually jump and attack. By the time I left though I could mostly avoid trouble and was totally in love with the Sonoran Desert. It was hard to leave.

    Probably not much here in your line work. The major industries are agriculture, mining, forestry, a few petroleum refineries, there's an Air Force base, and the universities. Wages fall well below the national average and housing is expensive - here in Bozeman it's something like 140% of the national average. WillyBob and his friend are right, living in northern climates isn't for everyone - you have to buy two of everything - summer and good winter clothes, two sets of tires for your car, a good snowblower and lawnmower, high heating and a/c bills. You pretty much have to drive anywhere (even around town) and air travel is expensive. But it's home, it's pretty, it's relatively uncrowded, and I like it.
  14. Dang, I wanted to send a PM but I didn't have my forum password on my cell phone and my new password is so clever that I forgot what it was. No matter, our table was just fine (actually nice to be in the quiet area) and it was great of you to come back and take a few minutes to visit on what looked like a very busy night. The food at Magnolia's was the best of the trip.
