  1. That was a major disappointment. Sparty MUST beat Hoosiers Tuesday and steal a game from Michigan. Winning one against Wolverines is unlikely. Winning both against U of M is not happening.
  2. I don’t mind it in the right situations, but it’s not really my first, or second, choice. IMO it’s not really pizza, but pineapple and ham on pizza dough.
  3. Happy Sunday bump. I’ll gladly trade a mixed batch of the Reg Williamson record cleaner referenced in the thread below.
  4. A victory this afternoon will help Sparty’s NCAA tournament hopes tremendously. We shall see if they’re worthy.
  5. I agree completely with this. My good system makes bad recordings sound bad, which makes me question the whole journey. A listen to a great recording puts it all back into perspective.
  6. My brother-in-law, in his early 60s, is also too young and “low risk.” He got Covid several months ago playing in a geezer hockey league . . . go figure. He has yet to regain his senses of taste and smell.
  7. Me too at Meijer in Warren. No Side effects.
  8. The gas powered systems were too hard to start.
  9. The possibility of sustaining the NCAA tournament streak is looking better all the time. On Sunday the Spartans travel to College Park, MD to take on the Terps.
  10. Spartans upset #4 Buckeyes. It’s a cliche, but one game at a time now.

    K Horns

    Photo of floor lamp?
  12. PWK was the leader of that crowd.
  13. Please do. I look forward to hearing your impressions.
  14. I too used a two-wheeled hand cart to move the four Speakerlab SKhorns about in my mobile DJ business. The plywood construction, including plywood enclosed backs and metal hardware cloth over the fronts and rears of the top hats, put each speaker at just under 200 Lbs. easily moved with a hand truck, but not easily moved by pranksters or would-be thieves. Of course, there was no concern for the safety of the black painted plywood, as there would be for fine hardwood veneers. For domesticated fine furniture I like the OP’s Jubes, I prefer the elegant solution designed and built by @LTusler.
  15. Spartans upset #5 Illini. They ain’t dead yet.

    Big Cold

    Great news.
  17. I don’t think so Chuck. When you make a playlist on Spotify, etc. the list is stored on their platform, not your hard drive. If you make a playlist on your computer using JRiver or the like, the playlist is on your hard drive, as are the tunes. To make a playlist independent of a streaming service, each of the individual files for each tune must first be saved on your hard drive. Only then can you use software, such as JRiver, to create a playlist. My Pono player allows me to create playlists, but the individual files are saved to a micro-sd card.
  18. Michigan and Ohio State are impressive. Juwan Howard is proving to be an excellent coach. I’m especially impressed with The Wolverines’ play after a three week forced layoff. To be beat the Buckeyes by 6 in Columbus was not easy.
  19. Fortunately, I won’t need a snowblower to clear the new snow. My decades old Craftsman finally gave up the ghost; it owed me nothing. Seasonal oil changes and drain the gas were the only maintenance. Never even pulled the plug. The engine still starts and runs strong. The drive belt and clutch mechanism failed and parts are no longer available. My neighbor insisted I borrow his new EGO Power+ rechargeable electric snowblower. It worked better than the old Craftsman. It cleared his driveway and walks, as well as mine, on a single charge. The best part is that his brother works for EGO and can get me one at wholesale. The same unit, batteries and charger is on sale at Lowes for $550. Mine will be $360. It should be here in a week. I don’t know what I’m more excited about, my vaccination 1st dose scheduled on 3/10 or the arrival of the new toy.
  20. The wife purchased this coffee to see what it’s like. We like coffee black and strong. It lived up to the promise of a, “ . . . smooth finish.” We woke up to a bit of new snow. Less than an inch to whiten the foot already on the ground.
  21. Thank goodness for that. When I was in China the food was not anything like the Chinese food I enjoy here. After a few days of eating bait, I eagerly descended upon a McDonalds to see how it compared to stateside. Fortunately, it was identical.
  22. I like it when a plan comes together. Congratulations @Sancho Panza and kudos to @carlthess40.
  23. What is the material from which the horns are made? Are they metal, resin, or something else? Are the cobra’s teeth solid? If you grind them away will there be holes? Thanks for the photos and the detailed analysis.
