Dave,
I can fully understand the heartbreak and feelings of shame that must accompany the shocking revealation of, what obviously was, your family's darkest secret.

My condolences and heartfelt wishes for a speedy recovery from what could only have been a devastating and total emotional collapse.

I'll get together with Dave Rosgaard and see if we can't put together a couple of recipes for Lutefisk. Lutefisk may not change your situation, but it will remind you that there are worse things in life, although other than Lutefisk itself, I'm not aware of what they might be.

Best Regards to you in your darkest hour,
Terry Olson

I was quite pleased actually. Makes both my Troll status (good troll, given to me by a Norwegian in Norway), and my Norwegian flag baseball cap, greater merit.

1/4 Slav, 1/4 Ukrainian or Russian (grandmom from Austro-Hungary, best we can figure), the rest a mish mash, of English, Scotch, French, American Indian and probably more.

Hi Everyone,
I felt that directions to the Church are in order. Please note that the event takes place in the basement. You'll find that the parking lot is sloped, just go downhill (I've been doing that for years!) and you're there.

So....Here Tiz:

Best Regards,

Hey Terry

I'm working on convincing Lori that we need a road trip to Seattle that weekend. Of course, I'll pay for Saturday on Mercer in Nordstrom's on Sunday, but what the heck.

If we make it, d'you think it would be worth the hassle at customs to bring the curvey Harveys, or will there be far too many speakers there already?

Regards.

Aengus

Aengus,
I don't know if the new format is responsible, but I just saw your post. I used to get a notice if someone had posted to diyAudio on a topic I had subscribed to, but evidently that has been changed.

Anyway, I'm not sure if you'd have a problem with customs, it certainly wouldn't seem that you're attempting to conceal them. You might want to take a picture of them being loaded at your house, especially if your camera can place a date stamp on the picture. Otherwise they're so nicely built and finished that they're sure to think that a high-end company built them! I'd hate to hear that they had to use the rubber hoses to gain a confession.


I have no idea how many speakers will be at the event, but I can tell you that single driver speakers are very under-represented at the speaker contests, so I'd say to just bring them...they will be a special feature of the event.

BTW: I just finished addressing the envelopes to send the copies of the "White Paper" that you signed up for. I should be sending them out tomorrow.

Best Regards,
TerryO

Subscriptions got left behind in the change-over. That will be fixed, perhaps in thiis WE's planned outage.

Hi Terry,

I have what I am sure is somewhat common inquiry. Will there be an organized DIY tube amp shootout at the meet? If there was, I just might make the trip. My entry, the Audio Augustus Imperator, needs to eat crow and be shown it's not the best.

But maybe it is!

We'll never know without a judged shootout, will we?

Hint hint

Just saw this posting, I hope it's not too late. Bring your amp and we'll try it out. The club will have a couple Genesis I60 tube amps and there may be others (I hope so!).
The judges will be the spectators.

Best Regards,
TerryO
