Hmm... I think this is like when cats bring in birds and rodents and leave them on your bed. It’s a gift. A sign of love. Not disturbing at all....

Happy Thanksgiving, Steve! Cheers to you and yours. And viva la Hubski!

A friend of my wife’s introduced us to her 20-something year old cousin as a potential babysitter. She’s since become a friend of ours. She and her (I’m assuming also 20-something yo) boyfriend come over on Sunday’s now for game night. It’s looking like it will mostly be Settlers of Catan. I was surprised that they’ve been playing for years.

I actually like them much more than the older cousin that introduced us. I’m convinced that age is largely irrelevant for friendships, at a certain point.

Anyways, it seems to me that gaming is alive and well with the millennials, which is a good thing.

I was an early fan. A friend of mine saw him live in Ann Arbor. I could have gone. Should have gone. I was in high school. He was immensely talented. Just getting started, really. His guitar playing is often over shadowed by his amazing voice, but it shouldn’t be. He was a big fan of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan which helped shape his vocal stylings. Kwali signing. Same with Chris Cornell. Check him out. I have posted some Nusrat here before.

I hope that Romney leads a revolt within the party. History would forever see him as a great American patriot. Unlikely though

Also, I know those ovations well. In high school everyone liked them because they were loud. But I couldn’t agree with you more, they sounded really thin. No heart; kind of synthetic.

When I walked in and the tech saw the guitar I was holding he said, “I know exactly why you are here.“ Apparently they are garbage.

I am returning to answer this comment. Why? Because it’s important people see this. I bought a composite Martin. Brand new. Apparently, it’s supposed to be every bit as good as Wood. Well, it’s not. It was total, shit. Just returned it got a fraction of what I paid for it and got a Taylor mini Koa in the same price point. A much better guitar.

This is hilarious to me. Why? Because mk of 5 years ago would have built the function you suggest. That said, I like the update. Thx mk.

Thank you for stopping by, it's nice to hear from you. I have gained some weight as of late too, but unlike you it's not In the right places. It's pretty much all in the ole gut. Hang in there re the meds. All things said, it sounds like you are incredibly self aware. That's something most people can't claim. Good luck with #2 :)

Thank you! Fixed. How do I eliminate that from happening on my phone? It’s very annoying and in no way intentional on my part.
