Re: Part 11 -- How To Loot A Railroad Museum Without Going To Prison

OK, so here's my take on "the plan" Mike: Why not do a feasibility study I.e. try one painting using the technique that you intend to go forward with, then you can show it to a few local galleries to determine if it could generate any interest. I did that with a painting of Red Sox great C...

Re: DEC International

Just one more similarities we have in common! I also tried to pick up the basics in German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and a dabble of Mandarin & Korean. I didn't mention French, because I was brought up in a Canadian speaking household, and that passed close enough in France. However in Pari...

Re: Welcome To New England

Having bought and sold seven homes between here and New Hampshire, I would have thought that would have been in the sales contract, that she would have to vacate the property on such and such date. Then, the morning of the "walk-through" if her furniture was still there, I would have immed...

Engineers' Control Boards

I've always had a keen interest in that whole operation of the guy that pushed and pulled all those electronic things in a recording studio. And over the years I have watched those little control boards grow from what once was something about half the size of my coffee table to what nowadays have be...

Re: Mister Blue

Having listened to that tune ever since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, I always though it sounded kinda "funny", but in those days who ever paid attention to whether or not a song was in tune, or had any other technical problems. All we ever cared about, was how fast we could learn the ...

"Only The Good Die Young"

First of all, let me preface my little story by saying this is NOT about the musical rendition by the talented Billy Joel. This on the other hand, is a look into the fifties & sixties decades of music, and the tragic loss of lives that we were made aware of, through the various news media. But f...

Re: The Frustrations of a wannabe--

I empathize on how frustrating it can be when first taking up a guitar, or ANY instrument for that matter! Two of my sons happen to be "virtuosos" on guitar, so I figured, "Hey, if it's so easy even my two boys can play like that after only two lessons, why not give it a go". So ...

Re: Forensic Gunsmith ... (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?)

Mike, that sounds great! The Fall in New England is so very beautiful, especially around the early part of October. And the area along the Mohawk Trail is even more so with the scenic vistas. Great camera and drawing opportunities ! I don't know if you are into "Art" in the form of paintin...

An Invitation To Visit With "BlueStrat", And Share His Musical Memories

Well, not to tread on Mike's coat-tails, but he gave me permission, so I thought I would post a little blurb to let you all know a little about who one of your moderators is, and along the way, provide you all with a little trip down memory lane to reminisce what was going on in the music scene at t...

Re: Forensic Gunsmith ... (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?)

Wow!, vey interesting stuff (if as a total novice I might say). I had some not so different association with forensics, but mine was with Footwear. While working for one of the largest sneaker manufacturers in the U.S.A., I would receive photocopies of (sometimes bloody) footprints on celluloid so I...
