    The large global corporation is named after the American entrepreneurs and founders Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom and Robert Lynn. The name for the US logistics company was derived from the first letters of their surnames in 1969. In 2002, the German postal service bought the US company.

    and finally ......Chase was an American jazz-rock band.


    On August 9, 1974, Chase was traveling by plane to Minnesota for a gig at the Jackson County Fair when they ran into bad weather - in the subsequent crash, Bill Chase died along with band members Wally Yohn, John Emma and Walter Clark, and their two pilots were also killed

  9. AAAHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!! wanna return to the rehab clinic 😂, I mean it was like making holidays there , three weeks vacation !

    Full room cleaning service, laundry service, 3 meals a day like in an international hotel kitchen , swimming pools, waterbed hydraulic massages, mudd bathes, sporting centre and so on . I´m really missing that since I´m back home .


    Now I have to take care of these things on my own again  . Okay ...I´m biking , my next public swimminghall isn´t that far away, I´m waiting for my confirmation for the sports excersise club´s time schedule , than I can start up there as well.

    After the easter holidays I´ll start to play tabel tennis again, the trainee halls are closed till april 8th. Lot´s of papwerworks to manage in view to the upcoming possible retirement procedere. Will take up to six month till final decisions are done.


    So it´s better that I shouldn´t complain, I´ll have to make the best out of it.


    A bit of spring time feeling here today ..shall be 60 F in the afternoon and the sun is watching through the clouds as well.

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of turntable is that? It's beautiful!

    I´ll try to make it short . Well , it´s a vintage japanese Micro Seiki DQX 1000 direct drive quartz controlled . They were built in the late 1970´tees and is the mother of all modern copied tt "oil rigs " . It´s a timeless tt concept that allows to mount up to three tonearms. I use one origin middel heavy modified Micro Seiki MA 505 MK II ( right sight ) and one light modified SME 3009 Tonearm ( back side ) . As I got different MI´s MM´s and MC´s in my cartridge collection it´s quiet important to meet their technical prerequisites like needle compilances and others.


    The wole unit is controlled with that motor controller unit for power on / off ,  quartz lock on / off and speed control
