What's on your mind?
Martin: Pete, I tried watching 'Morris', but after 10 minutes my wife was letting out such great sighs of disapproval that I'll need to resume in the wee small hours :gap: Jul 2, 2018 19:36:50 GMT
walkingdecay: Curiously the other way round with us. While appreciating the whimsy I thought a lot of the humour fell flat, but The Memsahib liked it a lot, maybe because she swims in cultural backwaters herself. Jul 4, 2018 8:00:12 GMT
walkingdecay: Weird stuff from the sky, Keith? You mean the clouds aren't broken down your way? Jul 4, 2018 8:01:48 GMT
ocarolan: Actually Pete, there's lots of clouds today, but so far they are just sitting there....weird wet stuff forecast for thisafto though.... Jul 4, 2018 8:10:44 GMT
walkingdecay: Wonderful stuff rain. The nearest we have to puddles round her are prostrate dogs. Jul 4, 2018 8:32:32 GMT
ocarolan: Haha - we now have real puddles thisafto and it's blissfully cooler. Jul 4, 2018 12:45:06 GMT
walkingdecay: Still dry here. The pergolas built by forced labour last year (The Memsahib took the wrong message away from Bridge Over The River Kwai) now look like the set for a low budget horror movie, skeletal and hung with things that might once have been plants. Jul 5, 2018 8:25:13 GMT
ianh: A collective madness has settled over Cumbria, with everyone jumping into lakes and invoking comparisons to 1976. Sadly, my memory of that is being laid out with chicken pox..... Jul 6, 2018 11:21:28 GMT
ocarolan: Happy Birthday to Ringo! I've lately been enjoying revisiting my Beatles Anthology DVDs - brilliant! Jul 10, 2018 8:45:12 GMT
walkingdecay: The boy and I are off to Brum to protest about our government entertaining an orange fascist nut job. If it rains at last, as it might, that will help. Jul 13, 2018 14:27:21 GMT
ianh: please shout some angry words for me! Been following the protests on the web all day - quite an event. Even rain can't dampen it Jul 13, 2018 18:49:51 GMT
walkingdecay: The Brum event was last-minute and kind of restrained, with lots of speeches that didn't raise rabble like me well enough, but it was quite well-attended and the weather was mercifully cool, so... Jul 14, 2018 7:31:47 GMT
Martin: Got the road trip guitar today, a lovely little thing and an excuse to meet another forum member and get all me guitars and banjers out! ;) Jul 22, 2018 12:30:43 GMT
davewhite: There's some weird stuff falling from the sky - I've got a vague recollection that I've seen it happen before :-/ Jul 27, 2018 18:01:20 GMT *
delb0y: Ragtime! If only I could play it... Aug 2, 2018 20:12:26 GMT
scorpiodog: Come to Halifax, Delb0y. We have lots of members who play ragtime very well, and I’m sure they’ll give you some tips. is a prime (but not the only) excellent proponent of the style. Aug 9, 2018 8:00:35 GMT
teetosh: How does the preamp in the Boss AD 10 compare to the preamp in the Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre Aug 15, 2018 2:26:56 GMT
007: The woofers are a bit better but the tweeters are a bit to bassy for me also I prefer the random note generation software on the Boss it seems more sophisticated than the Tonebone but there again each to there own 8-) Aug 20, 2018 16:46:01 GMT
curmudgeon: I just put an ad up on the classifieds. First time. My guitar-Octave mando conversion. I hope it meets the rules etc. Aug 27, 2018 14:51:18 GMT
ocarolan: Looks good to me, Andy - good luck with your sale! Aug 28, 2018 23:29:57 GMT
