    If you had stuff to take care of before today, you can forget about it until tomorrow. Almost everything that has to do with a monetarily purposeful life is closed. So relax, settle in and enjoy some Bing, Mathis. Cole or whatever sort of holiday music atrocity holds fond memories for you. Drinking stuff that has rum or brandy in it can help if you have trouble getting with the program. Get in touch with people you love and be courteous even with those you don't. Think of something nice and allow yourself to smile about it. And have a merry Christmas.

    I got a new sharpening stone (two sided Japanese water stone), a fish fossil (to go with my trilobite as book shelf décor), a couple of books about little known facts and odd trivia and some candy!!! Good day! Hope you all got something nice too. Even if it was only peace of mind and good company.

    My wife and I don't do gifts, we just exchange cards.
    We have the agreement, when we want or need something we just go and buy it.
    That doesn't apply however with the kids and grandkids. We spoil them rotten!
    So I got a couple of Gift cards to a local farm store I buy at a lot, from my kids.
    My son also got me a digital weather station.
    I have it sitting on the table next to the recliner.
    It has a atomic set clock.
    It has Inside Temp, and Humidity.
    Came with a small remote sensing unit, small enough to go between the window and screen.
    It tells outside temp and outside humidity.
    Also shows if pressure is going up and down, and whether weather is good or bad.
    A neat little device.
    The more expensive units do wind speed, but require a unit on the roof.

    Happy New Year To You All....

    2014 ended on a good note. I picked up a nice Peavey Bandit 112 for $40. The case, speaker, footswitch, all in good condition. There was no output. I cleaned the pots and there you go- that is all she needed. I will give the amp to a deserving up and coming musician as a way of "Paying It Forward" - something I hope you will all do as we benefit greatly by sharing with each other.

    Best wishes to you all for 2015. And remember, be safe out there and especially when you're sticking your hands in an amp that is powered up!!

    I fully agree with the "Paying It Forward" concept Tom. For the past couple of years I have taken a entry level Fender guitar and donated it to the silent auction of a local charity. I put in a set of my pickups, replace all the electronics, shield the guitar, do a full fret dressing, new bone nut, new strings, and a general clean up.

    This year the base guitar was a Fender Squier Standard FMT in flawless condition that I picked up on Kijiji .

    Merry Christmas! With all the kids grown and such, family and friends here decided to do away with the commercial end of the holiday. Keeping to decorations, meals and getting together for drinks, cakes and such instead. And Christmas came, just the same. It came without presents. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes and bags!

    Gotta go now... My puzzler is sore.

    A happy and prosperous new year be unto all of you.

    We did our Christmas with the kids and grand kids yesterday.
    The Tree got stripped of presents then.
    This morning we had our quiet little breakfast, just the wife and I.
    We may take a drive to visit my son and family this afternoon.

    Nope.
    But last year I got a red stain LP special reissue

    I know a guy that I help a lot with amp and guitar stuff. He had two. One he preferred and another that I preferred.
    He straight up gifted me the one I liked! And he did it gracefully. I help him for free just because what he needs is interesting to me and he's a friend. But there's no obligatory issue at all. Just a sweet guitar under the tree in 2015.

    I don't get it.

    I have this basically dead pine tree in my living room.

    I come down stairs this morning & there is all sorts of stuff under it.

    Merry Christmas.

    Feliz Navidad.
