    What do You Listen to That's not Music?

    I have a rental next door. A couple moved in and on the very first weekend he thru open the garage door and started to thump at a pretty good volume. about 20 minutes later the wife comes out and start raising heck. I've never heard such language. She had a mouth like a sailor(no offence to sailors). Then after that was kicking and screaming. Then came the blows. She would smack him. then he'd smack her. this would go on for about an hour' then silence. This went on for about a year. Loved it. Would have coffee on the back porch most saturdays listening to the kerfuffle.

    Best Childhood Memories

    Teaching myself to ride a bike or maybe every Sunday evening my mom would drag me kicking and screaming to the couch where she would clean my ears and trim my nails for the week.

    What I Got Today!

    These came from an ad in craigs list in Fayetteville.They are satin Black. the former owner has only been in town for a few days(got stationed at Fort Bragg). He told me the last home he lived in had sweet basement for his man cave. The house he has now has no room. While I was there he sold his big screen tv.

    What I Got Today!

    Snagged a pair of klf-30s today from the original owner.Their about an 8 out of 10 condition wise. All drivers original and in perfect working order. They have a few cosmetic issues but nothing I can't take care of. Some TLC is all they need. I was told they were purchased in Italy while he was stationed overseas. WOW! they sound great. Think I'll do the upgrades after awhile.

    Expectations, where do your lie ?

    I think we've all had some sort of disappointment in our second hand experiences. I once received a 70 pound amp shipped in a ragged box and only peanuts as packing material. Thank the audio gods it was not damaged in any way. Worked perfectly. I guess I was lucky. Big D

    Wood finishing question

    With stain, you can brush it on and wipe it off or put some on a rag and work it in. do as many coats as needed to get desired results. Different woods take stain differently. Always spray top coats when possible to avoid brush marks. Many thin coats (sanding lightly in between with 220 or finer grit)is better than one heavy coat. Use a scrap piece to test on for best result(stains,pickling,etc,and finishes). Big D
