What's on your mind?
martinrowe: 'The Whole Earth Catalog' here we come. Sept 21, 2021 16:28:06 GMT
walkingdecay: Always confused me, that. I can think of fewer more awkward spaces to occupy than a geodesic dome. Sept 21, 2021 17:05:09 GMT
walkingdecay: There, you've got me worrying about people who live in geodesic domes now, and more specifically what must happen when they try to lean a guitar against the wall. Sept 21, 2021 19:52:59 GMT
martinrowe: :) Sept 21, 2021 20:10:29 GMT
robmc: The raison d'etre of geodesic domes is to stop people leaning guitars against walls :naughty: you could ask Buckminster Fuller if he were still with us but he has sadly passed on to the great dome in the sky. Sept 23, 2021 10:22:58 GMT
davewhite: If you had an Ovation - or a lute - you'd probably be OK 8-) Sept 23, 2021 16:56:58 GMT
walkingdecay: Or a really big kettle drum, which might even obviate the building itself.(Dome in the sky - I like it.) Sept 23, 2021 23:04:40 GMT
otis1960: I haven’t had an Ovation since I was 19; they were a lovely audience that night Sept 25, 2021 10:26:00 GMT
walkingdecay: Oh, that's splendidly bad. Congrats. Sept 26, 2021 7:23:29 GMT
walkingdecay: Trapped in a room with Strictly Come Dancing on for the first time in years. Fortunately a former bandmate was also confined, so we had a good time ripping in to its bloody awful band. Sept 26, 2021 8:26:05 GMT
walkingdecay: Morning, all you bumps in the road to the glorious uplands of Brexit. Cry hog, for England, Lizzie and St Boris! Oct 4, 2021 7:21:16 GMT
walkingdecay: Biggest laugh of the year: Pig breeders "in tears" over culling of animals they've bred to murder for profit. Oct 6, 2021 0:12:42 GMT
walkingdecay: OK, I'm very angry with what's happening and slipping into one of my mardy moods at present. I'd better stay away from the internet for a while, as it tends to make me worse. Back in a few months, most likely. Enjoy your wood! Oct 6, 2021 7:31:00 GMT
martinrowe: I find trying to avoid the news helps. It's quite hard to do but even a little bit of success at avoidance helps. Take care Pete. Oct 6, 2021 7:50:42 GMT
curmudgeon: I'm pretty angry about what is happening in the UK too - not satisfying to see my predictions coming true. As a lady on Question Time said last night - "The tide is turning!" Gov representatives/reprobates get a hard time on QT! Will "Gov" ban it? Oct 8, 2021 16:20:48 GMT
curmudgeon: Wife's to do list : sweep leaves, empty dishwasher. I've added Solve global warming, save economy, cure covid -anything else I should add for Saturday? Oct 23, 2021 0:09:38 GMT
scorpiodog: Well done on giving your wife a to do list. Mine would never do anything I asked. That’s one reason why I don’t have one any more. Oct 23, 2021 5:39:20 GMT
curmudgeon: I don't give her lists - I just added a few things. Monday - Wash kitchen floor, hoover lounge, cure cancer, feed cat (again) Oct 25, 2021 10:31:09 GMT
curmudgeon: I like changing strings, flat tops, arch tops, mandolin, 12 strings, resos, - all fine. Yesterday I tried to restring my 5 string banjo. three stabbings, and a broken G string! (don't!) Oct 25, 2021 10:34:44 GMT
ocarolan: I also enjoy changing strings - I find it an alnost meditative experience but not particularly so on mandolins and 12-strings when it can get tedious. Oct 25, 2021 11:55:50 GMT
