  1. The Beatles.. 'Help'. Bought new in '65 as a ten year old.
  2. "FBI director warns of Russian interference and white supremacist violence"... an article in the NYT which was reprinted in the Seattle imes. (NY has a pay wall). https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/fbi-director-warns-of-russian-interference-and-white-supremacist-violence/ I copied and pasted the words in quotes, taken directly from the article, into the Fox News website's 'Search" engine (you know, the ones with the magnifying glass) and came up with exactly no articles on Fox. Surprised? Some are not. My only reason to post this is to implore, again, that folks don't rely on just one source of info. No matter how much confirmation bias it gives you.
  3. A Chinese virologist claimed the coronavirus was 'intentionally' released. Turns out, she works for a group led by Steve Bannon. Turns out the link to 'the facts' on fox was from this. https://www.businessinsider.com/virologist-who-said-china-released-coronavirus-works-with-steve-bannon-2020-9
  4. The Post is behind a pay wall. This is a similar article you can access. And it isn't the only other version for those who are cnn averse. https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/17/us/idaho-pastor-covid-masks-trnd/index.html
  5. Rest in Peace, Toots. I love the Maytals.
  6. My company had a job on the 76th floor of (what was then called the Columbia Tower) in Seattle when we got the word to evacuate. That's a lot of stairs. There was worry that the building would be a target, also, as the tallest on the west coast. I was scared. Thank you first responders and God bless all.
  7. I don't know about the rest of you older folks, but when my wife turned 70, (she's older than I am) our home phone (yes, we're that old) lit up like never before with scam calls. I mean by the hundreds over a 5 year perod. I had to raise my voice over it a couple times. My wife is the most trusting human I've ever known. But she is wise, or rather. skeptical enough to tell them to cram it now. Scammers work on the aged at a fast clip. We've been told the police are on their way(!!) due to an overdue bill. That our power bill is overdue and we're to be shut down.... by a power company whose name does not even exist. The ever obiquitous 'pc security issue.' Over and over. And the only reason it doesn't end is because it is lucrative. An amazingly never ending assault. We get at least 3 of these a week. In a slow week.
  8. Me too with my dad. Then Jimmy Lennon and the 'Friday Night Fights' on the tube.
  9. I don't remember the year our family got our first color tv. But I do remember watching 'The Wizard Of Oz' many, many times before I realized there was color in the Oz scenes!
  10. "Out of The Western Sky comes... Sky King!" What a great memory, Thanks Marvel. Man that was a looong time ago. It had to have been. I was a kid then. I actually surprised myself by remembering that lead-in.
  11. A two record anthology well before he even got 'famous'. Love this album.
  12. Food, chewing gum, toothpaste, bait. They like it all.
  13. Yeah, money trumps.... well... everything else I guess. Yacht owners vs surfers. At least you still have to work a little to get down to Black's. My favorite. And not because it has a nude beach!

    Oh Diz.... you need to call the Police and ask.
  15. Ah Dana Point... I remember you well. One of the very best waves destroyed by progress. It is a nice marina now, I guess.
  16. And Hot Tuna still comes around as both a full electric band and as Hot Tuna Acoustic!
  17. ^^ That's awsome! I have some of those clamps. Whoda thought? You Canadians are all engineers or something. I have a pair or two I can try this out on.
  18. I might get it. A figure of speech I hadn't heard?
  19. I saw this comment on youtube and spit up my coffee.... Frog: "Mmm...yum yum, eat 'em up!" Beetle: "You gotta be shittin' me!" The youtube vid was just too disturbing to post. https://www.wired.com/story/frog-eats-beetle-beetle-crawls-through-guts/

    ^^ It pays to look ahead!
  21. I do love the way Klipsch reproduces my tunes but, to me, it is all about the music. I was very happy, iirc, when I heard Motown on my transistor radio. And the 3 nightly hours Ronnie McCoy would play album cuts on KNAC back in the '70's on my mom's table radio. The music.
