Which reminds me.. some years back, when in the business of altering the RT of concert halls, someone seriously suggested filling the ceiling void with a big helium balloon....

At first, when I tried helium filled balloons voices weren't quite right. They sounded really high and schreechy, that is until 500 hours of burn in. By then the balloons lost pressure and brought the wires down to the correct level.

New leather gauntlet gloves and leather chaps.

I still need a new leather jacket, boots and helmet.

The old ones were suddenly worn out last Saturday afternoon.

Picked up my Peugeot from the repair shop today. Had the guys change the timing belt as we will drive to Italy next month and do not want to end up on a mountain top with a motor in pieces. Set me back a lot ...

Just ordered two 5902 and two 5718 tubes as back-up for my small SE-amp.

Locking up brakes on a motorcycle is not a good plan for the most part.

It is kind of weird how they can straighten up and continue on after throwing off a driver.

The HD obviously didn't like the Ford F-250 as it made a beeline for it and hit the front bumper, then flopped over. I had to get the owner of the truck to move it back a few feet in order to have clearance to pick up the TCU-ULH.
