  1. 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!

  2. 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😀

    Thanks Paul for the approval :emotion-21:,  I usually don't post CD content here, but I wanted to share the B&O system, and without a TT that goes with it, well, the CD was the next choice.  I could do a cassette next :D, THAT little transport was very difficult to work on.  There were 4 belts that had to be changed out!! 


    Ok, still enjoying Ms. Krall ^_^ 

    If you're still looking for a B&O TT lady friend has one and other B&O gear.  Let me know.

  4. 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.

  5. LF is traveling to a family reunion so I have an early seating at the bar at Henry's Restaurant.  Since I will be alone I asked to sit in the bar area.....same menu just less formal. 


    Cold and windy this morning.  LF is backing out of her tennis match so we will have breakfast at The Toastery near the beach.  Crab cakes benedict with potatoes for me.  She will have the same replacing the yummy potatoes with fruit.

    So there you have it....one of you guys alert the press!

    As a former professional window cleaner, I do not recommend this. Clean newsprint paper, perhaps, but nothing with print on it. The old carbon-based inks would transfer to the glass making it "sparkle" but it was not clean. I can't tell you how many houses I cleaned where the black yuck dripped off the window. Almost as bad as tobacco smoke residue.


    Water and a bit of Dawn dish liquid is the secret recipe of most pros. Add a little vinegar if the windows are particularly dirty. The real secret on home windows is to use a good quality squeegee, but that is pretty difficult on curved car windows. Go for the microfiber towel.

    Yes Dawn and distilled water was the better of the three attempts.  Ordered 8 waffle weave microfiber cloths from Amazon today.

  7. Warm here....should take the Bubble for a top down spin.  Experimenting on car window cleaning recently.  First alcohol and water.  Next vinegar and distilled water.  Third 2 drops of Dawn and distilled water.  Microfiber cloth with each.  Happiest with #3 but now I read they make a waffle microfiber cloth that's better.  Saw a guy on youtube use a clay bar on the windows so I may try that as I already have a few😑


    Want to play with my new preamp but it resides at my house and I don't.  The house share person stays up till two and sleeps till 11am😙  Well at least I can look at a photo of it........
