    A$$ Removal

    And leaking A$$ $ilicone. Next stop Cellulite City where the water tower reads 5 gallons. Wb

    A$$ Removal

    The unanswered question: Just what exactly does this $ilicone A$$ woman 'model'? Wb

  4. He probably planned on launching them to the buyer via sling shot at $20. Wb
  5. I'd probably get shot for that. French Beef Stew wants Thyme, the beef and vegetables... and one chopped up tomato which is removed is as close as this will ever come to Ketchup. Excoffier invented, or not WRT Ketchup! Wb
  6. Spent most of the day making Beef Stew for my daughter Melissa. That's what she wants as her last dinner before flying back to Toronto and work tomorrow (over going out for dinner). I usually use Sirloin steak cutup, this time a mix of Sirloin and Striploin. Wb
  7. The late tube guru Alan Douglas, described the 2A3 as two 45 tubes in one bottle. I believe that is exactly how this tube was originally developed. Almost twice the output of 45 tubes in SET amps but without the detail and sparkle of a good 45 tube in my Yamamoto. Great for listening to Rock but not as good sounding for more complex Jazz, piano and guitar instrumentals. That said, I’ve only briefly heard one pair of new NOS RCA monoplate 2A3 tubes in the Yamamoto. The dual plate 2A3’s are more common with RCA having made most NOS 2A3’s. Wb
  8. As of a few years back the designer of the AVVT Tube is either living in Germany or the Czech Republic. He seems to have had his fill of designing audio tubes and moved on to do something else. The early ones were failing with fireworks. Good tubes if you can find a later production set. True, with some exceptions. Lots of junk was being sold straight out of China via Ebay. They had warranties that were rarely honoured, plus the shipping cost back and forth to China by parcel post is pretty high. The exceptions are pretty expensive though, come with warranties by some NA based sellers, who do lots of burning in and testing to select the best made 'new manufacture' tubes. Many of us stocked up several years back and have good supplies of NOS tubes. Billions of tubes were made, but most since the 1950's were made for TVs and not audio. I believe that you are correct; many of the type of materials used into the 1980's are not available for use now. Especially in the EU, Japan and NA. Wb
  9. Years ago I worked with an ‘old guy’ that had two hearing aids. Old technology compared to what you can get today. He had to adjust the volume on them if he could not hear what you said. One day to bug him we decided that every time we spoke to him we would Just mouth the words, making no sound. Had him adjusting the volume on his hearing aids all day. He could not read lips. Finally we figured he’d turned them up to max volume and we commenced speaking to him really loudly and he’d practically jump in the air. He spent the whole day turning the damn things up, then down, then up in response to our foolishness. I don’t think he found this to be funny. We did. Wb
  10. I also believe that you can hear if a component to a piece of audio equipment impacts the resulting sound quality. For me it was a change to a Rectification tube that changed my mind. If you can hear it, who cares if no one else notices? Most people say that a change out of rectifiers will not change how your system sounds. Wb
  11. This is an Elekit? I guess I don't understand why would you need to replace so many resistors (fairly new looking too)? Required or desired? Wb
  12. Went from powder like sand that I didn’t have to shovel to snow in less than two days. More snow coming over the next couple of days. Glad I have a snowblower. Wb
  13. Probably smart to just wait. At the pace of medical technology advancement today your solution could be in the fairly near term. Wb
  14. Sucked then. Sucks now. Formula 1 will deny that it occurs in their series today. It still happens with code words and all. Wb
  15. Agree: Pretty foolish and will end up making sure that those who actually have a need for a Service Animal will run into increasing intolerance at the local restaurant, food store, etc.. How did you destroy your hearing to this extent? By PM if you want. Wb
  16. Returned my rental on Saturday. This one is for you: Wb
  17. See if your GI or other specialist will prescribe or stipulate Golytely for the night before. Works quickly and w/o cramping. Also, after a couple of long hours of reading, you're done! For the procedure they should drug you into the Land of Nod. If you're lucky, you will hardly remember a thing afterwards. Wb
  18. If you had the paper work with you you should have read the Enterprise Manager the Riot Act. Politely, but firmly insisted that they deliver an upgraded vehicle forthwith. Wb
  19. Of course the P-38f's are listed near to where I just left. I do believe Amazon was clearing these at that price for a new pair a while back when Klipsch discontinued them. Wb
  20. Be sure to let us know how that works out for you 😉. Wb
  21. I finally got the time to watch the documentary on Netflix tonight. More on development of the car, timeframe not compressed like it was in the movie. Henry Ford confirmed as running Ford in the mid 1960’s like Stalin ran the Soviet Union. Documentary said Ford offered $15 million to buy Ferrari, maybe that was the final offer before Enzo sold his controlling interest to Fiat. Original Ford offer was $10 million. Documentary discussed Ferrari being unhappy with proposed contractual restrictions on where and when Ford’s Racing Team under his control could race, etc. Ferrari did not like this proviso and made the deal with Fiat. Fiat has pretty much stayed out of running the Ferrari Race Team ever since. Definitely while Enzo was alive. Both films were good, the movie more entertaining though. Wb
  22. It’s all a ploy to get treats and plenty of them. Preferably liver. It’s a continuous game of brinksmanship with Bichon’s. They spend their days quietly plotting to take someone’s chair, toy or spot on the bed (especially each other’s). They spend their nights dreaming of taking someone’s spot on the bed (especially mine). At times trying to get your attention by lying on your pillow and licking you face until you wake up. Wb
  23. Should have flipped a two headed coin with FvF being heads. The remake of a classic war movie made in the 1970’s with real aircraft, other equipment that was period correct and the best character actors’ of their day is bound to fail. What will they screw up next in the pursuit of cashing in: A Bridge Too Far, The Longest Day, Patton? He was okay playing a hit man in the last movie I saw him in, but playing a four star Admiral is not exactly a role I’d expect him to pull off. Wb
  24. Hi Jeffrey, I'm pretty sure most people here could build a better amp or anything else that requires soldering expertise. I'd also probably burn the house down trying. I do have a buddy that can solder in his sleep and pretty much do anything with electronics that a professional shop can (he quickly resolved an issue with one of my tube amps a couple of years back that the local tube amp expert could not (was getting a slight buzz in my Klipsch Belles at low volumes from a hairline crack - not visible with the naked eye in one soldered joint on one capacitor). He is not returning from his job in Montana until next May at which time I plan to help him build a new workshop on the rural property he purchased. In exchange, he will very likely 'help' me analyse, repair, upgrade, or build anything I need a hand with. In both cases, I'll be the chief assistant and he's the journeyman. I have the skill to build an excellent (all galvanized screw wooden fence with 6"X6"X10' posts and no sag gates) and do most mechanical work on motor vehicles & can match him in this regard as we have done lots of this kind of work together since meeting in High School, but I draw the line at doing body work on cars/trucks (he can and does do all of his own body work). I also don't like rebuilding automatic transmissions and changing gears in differentials (he does this too). Never, say never, but I'd need to really up my skill level if I ever decide to get into soldering. Greg
