  1. Meandering into the world of room treatments slowly.  Installed 16 sq. ft of Owens Corning 703 rigid insulation behind a tapestry and two diffuser/absorption panels on the opposite wall. 


    Next step will be panels behind the speakers and a bass trap or two.


    Still working on cup #1.

  2. Many years ago I thought I would chop up a stump to get rid of it and get some exercise to boot.  On the second chop I felt a sting and by the second sting realized what was going on.  I ran to the back porch with the ax still in my hand.  The door was locked and my late wife with her hands to her face panicked and just stood there.  Seven stings and after a call to my neighbor, a doctor, took a couple of antihistamines and all was good.

  3. How will your stereo gear be disposed of once you're pushing up Daises?  Does your significant other have any idea what its worth?  Have you written instructions?  Has anyone given this a thought?  Do you have a relative or friend who would value it as much as you do?

  5. Do we need to send out a search party for Grasshopper?

    Poor little Swanky is getting several teeth pulled today.  Periodontal disease.  Second time he has been under sedation for extractions.  Dad's on pins and needles!

    @Marvel hope you're not getting what I have workin right now.  I FORCED myself to roll out this morning.  Otherwise, it would have been noon again I'm sure.  Past couple weeks it's been an insane sleep cycle for me.  Blah!  😂  Haven't had a shingles vac yet and prolly won't.  Might regret it but will see.


    Where the heck is that @grasshopper anyway?  He must be gardening and livin in the shed.  Hope he didn't get locked in.

  7. The Bubble got a salon treatment this week.  The transmission was leaking fluid so it got a new pan with gasket and bolts, a new filter to filter 8 quarts of fluid, and oil and filter change, air filter, cabin air filter, wiper blades, topped off the coolant, state inspection.


    12 year old Z4 with 41,000 miles.  A 35is twin turbo, with a Burgar JB4 tune. An in practical car but it's daddy's baby.


    That's about all my excitement and most of my money for the week.....

  8. Speaking of cars I'm going to drop a little over $1000 next week to remove and replace transmission fluid and filter on the BMW Z4.  Pan has to come off and the bolts replaced.  Have a small leak.


    Replaced the air filter, cabin filter, and wiper blades this week.
