  1. Morning grasshopper! Haven't been on the forum much lately. Ice and 24 degrees here getting up to 40 today. Power went out around 5:45 am preventing the auto coffee grinder to keep it's 6:00 appointment. Lit the gas stove to boil water and then the power comes back on. So one cup under the belt and headed back to the kitchen. As for the lock I guess we all need to stick to the 97 out of 100 things we can discuss and leave the other 3% for Face Book. Nuff said about that.........
  2. Woodford Reserve and Elijah Craig small batch are priced about the same here. Finishing up a bottle of the EC just now to celebrate a new speaker purchase.
  3. My father graduated from Lees-McRae college.....born in Old Fort in 1915. The family had a large Victorian house in town but many years later when I drove through sadly the house had been remuddled. All the gingerbread and trim stripped off and vinyl siding installed🤢
  4. Hey Duke....miss your old avatar. Recall we both had the same Quicksilver Audio Full Function preamp. Recently sold mine as it was getting long in the tooth (1987).
  5. Not the real Duke Spinner! Where you been for such a long time? Welcome back!
  6. Yep he attended Carolina (UNC-Chapel Hill) as well as drug rehab later writing the song Fire and Rain about his addiction.
  7. It's dead here on the forum! Anyone recall the name of the shipping company that has been recommended for shipping heavy speakers without damaging? May need to get something shipped from Florida to coastal NC.
  8. The new look of our web site takes getting use to. Think I prefer the previous look. Just my 2 cents!
  9. Noticed I haven't seen joessportster post in awhile. Checked his profile and his last visit was 9/26. Taking a break?
  10. I cooked a 3 rib, seven pound standing rib roast for three of us so there are left overs😊
  11. Merry Christmas to all the CCC&C gents! Swanky got the left over cheese grits this morning. Happy pup!
  12. We may yet make it to seven years of CCC&C if we keep political innuendo off this thread😐
  13. Weigh in. Started at 198.8 last Sunday now at 191.8. Yep I know a lot of it is water weight but still the belts not as tight. As LF said "the key is not to binge on the carbs you've been craving". On the positive side Atkins and Keto allow bourbon! Started out foggy but now the sun is out and it feels almost spring like. LF playing tennis with her group. Swanky is sleeping.......... Gents....enjoy your weekend!
  14. I never said anything about your weight😊
  15. Hell you would love to see anybody that has Tequila😁
  16. You gents remember Ben Samuelson I'm sure. A regular on CC&C for a while. Turned 60 today! Oh to be 60 again!
  17. We have Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts here but the place where folks line up is Britt's Donuts at Carolina Beach, NC. Melt in your mouth (no chewing required). That said....I am at a 10 year high with weight. 6'2", 198. 187 is the goal....just deciding between my stand by (Atkins), Keto, or ad lib. Of course this will start after my visit to an upscale steak house Saturday night and party Sunday night😀
  18. On behalf of the CCC&C Procrastinator's Club.....Happy Thanksgiving!
  19. If you're still looking for a B&O TT lady friend has one and other B&O gear. Let me know.
  20. Let's see how this works out. Yesterday I pulled the speakers out into the room further so they rested on the area rug instead of hardwood. A bit closer together too. Warmed up the tubes and put a well recorded Norah Jones CD. Sounded darn good! So putting my giant size brain to work I deduced that I needed a larger rug. Got on line and ordered a 10'x13' for my smallish music room (14.2'X13.1'). So now I'll have to hire some strong backs to lift the stereo cabinet and slide the rug under it. The rug and drapes are my only concession to room treatments.
