  1. Hey Byron - Welcome to the forum. I do still have and enjoy the Shorthorns. They cleaned up nicely and Klipsch was kind enough to provide me with what I was told to be the very last of their cane fabric.
  2. Store it upside down. You're welcome.
  3. That sounds about right to me. I'm no tax guru and this should not be construed as tax advice, but it is my limited understanding that taxes on 1099-NEC earnings will be much (+15%) higher since you are now responsible for paying both halves of the employer and employee payroll taxes that apply to wages. If, however, the income in question is sporadic (neither reliable nor periodic), it can instead be reported in box 1 on the "Other Income" line of Schedule 1, Form 1040: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1099nec.pdf
  4. Great sale price! https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/lagostina-tuscan-collection-enamel-cast-iron-dutch-oven-white-4-qt-1429673p.html
  5. These were made in the spirit of a Klipsch Shorthorn and offer a passing resemblance, but, other than that, there is nothing Klipsch about these. Not even the cabinets. But, if they sound good and you like the price...
  6. It doesn't seem unreasonable that, given the huge increase of reported cases (nearing 850,000/day) combined with the drastic shortage of 'official' testing, the daily case numbers might be low. On top of that, it is being reported that the at-home test results are not being counted, and surely there are asymptomatic people not being tested. Estimates are merely guesses, even when educated ones, but I doubt anything 'sinister' is happening here by association. My opinions, of course.
  7. The most recent information I have seen also suggested 25 hours of protection from Omicron, when one of two people is infected and both are wearing non-fit tested N95 masks. It is further suggested that protection is greatly extended if both masks are tightly sealed. This is one of the primary reasons I wear N95 masks with behind the head straps instead of behind the ear straps, since (for me) the mask can fit tightly without ear fatigue. YMMV https://www.wsj.com/articles/cloth-face-mask-omicron-11640984082
  8. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, for starters. Here is their briefing from 1/8/22: https://www.healthdata.org/sites/default/files/files/102_briefing_United_States_of_America_3.pdf
  9. Context is important. Here is the entire quote: “You know, a really important study if I may just summarize it, a study of 1.2 million people who were vaccinated between December and October and demonstrated that severe disease occurred in about 0.015% of the people who are receive their primary series and death in .003% of those people. The overwhelming number of deaths over 75% occurred in people who had at least four comorbidities so really these are people who were unwell to begin with. And yes, really encouraging news in the context of omicron this means not only just to get your primary series but to get your booster series.” The “Good Morning America” segment that aired on Jan. 7 left out the context that the statistic only applies to those who have been fully vaccinated, and does not refer to overall COVID-19 deaths. https://www.khou.com/article/news/verify/coronavirus-verify/cdc-director-walenskys-good-morning-america-interview-shared-out-of-context/536-df3fef72-c341-4cfa-8a09-8d8bb9578a62
  10. I'll let my dad know...

    Nice work, Gregg!
  12. Don't forget that woofer access can also be on the side...

    Jokes?

    The top drawer is the fish drawer...
  14. Possibly manufactured for the Rodgers Organ Company: If the top is screwed on, the access to the woofer may be through the top rather than through the bottom...

    Jokes?

    It's a meme, not an actual news piece. Trying to be what it isn't... Even so, either Texas ain't great at math or turkeys were apparently free last year: From the Waco Tribune - Herald "Specifically talking turkey, the Texas Farm Bureau said the typical 16-pound bird fetches $23.99 this year, about $1.50 more per pound than last year." https://wacotrib.com/news/local/surprise-a-texas-thanksgiving-meal-costs-more-this-year/article_9029e7b0-49c1-11ec-a826-ff217d9fff1f.html
