Also, windows media player has a half-speed option. Rightclick on the play button. Makes learning riffs much easier.

If it's a bolt on neck (2 bills, it should be), take the neck off, box it up and you should be able to carry it on the plane and stow it in the overhead bin.

I saw them in 2005 and was impressed at how they played 45 minutes straight, one song right into another.

Happier days!

Is a husbend when you are married to Gumby?

Do a search for a song [chords]. Plenty of websites that offer them.


 House of the rising sun

      Am    C        D          F
There is a house in New Orleans,
      Am        C      E7
They call the "Rising Sun",
      Am       C       D           F
It's been the ruin of many a poor girl, (boys?)
     Am     E        Am    E7
And God, I know, I'm one.

My mother was a tailor,
She sewed those new blue jeans,
my husbend he's a gambling man,
(drinks) down in New Orleans.

My husbend in a gambler,
He goes from town to town,
The only time, he's satisfied, is when
He drinks his liquor down.

Oh, mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done -
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of Rising Sun

One foot on the platform,
The other's on the train,
I'm going back to New Orleans,
to wear that ball and chain.

Going back to New Orleans,
My race is almost run,
I'm going to spend the rest of my life,
Beneath that "Rising Sun".

"Screw him and give him a dollar."

That's what you tell your hot wife/girlfriend. Cooking him breakfast should be her idea.


People tip their carriers at Christmas, if they want to. It's not going to get anybody fired. At one point in time the PO was buying million dollar houses for relocating postmasters. Now, I think it's only half a million, max.



Ten or twenty bucks is appropriate, if the guy did a good job and you want to give him cash and a card.

In reference to the above poster, we are quasi-govermental. we pay into the same retirement plan as the rest of the g'vment, but we take no taxpayer's money to fund or operations - haven't for decades. The USPS receives no sponsorship of any sort from the states.

Personally, I just bought a house, so I could use guidance on tools or other items that every homeowner should have.



How handy are you, what are you planning on doing, what shape is the house in? I have enough tools to build a house, but that might not be what you are getting into.

Bankruptcy or not, Harrisburg is a pleasant, if boring (compared to LA, NY) place to live. You are not going to have the crimerate of Pittsburgh or Philly and you have the advantage of being at the crossroads of the state.

Anyone live in Harrisburg?

I might be moving there for a year or so, and am looking for advice on good neighborhoods (preferably near the Capitol). I'd really like to rent a house so that my dog can have a yard.

Um, Harrisburg is a pretty small "city". It is also pretty damned rural once you get past the city limits - you are within 20 minutes of fishing and hunting nirvana. Also hiking, if you want to carry a camera instead.  icon_razz Yards won't be a problem, it's not urban enough to have blocks of concrete wastelands.



Looks like this is the ghetto.



The Senators play minor league baseball on an island next to downtown H'burg. Nice park. Gettysburg is a short run down 15. Also down 15 is Brothers, a diner- if I'm in the area, I always stop in. Go north and you hit wilderness (and PSU). Poe Paddy State park is pretty amazing. Shoot northwest and you'll hit Allegheny National Forest, which is 800 square miles of forest.

OTOH, if you are looking for a vibrant nightlife, you may find it a bit lacking.

It's either focus or thread necrophilia, but...


I visited the New Hartford, Connecticut, Guild Guitar factory with members of my guitar forum. We toured the factory and were pleased to see the expansion of the brand.  Afterwards, we were treated to a get-together at a local firehouse banquet hall, where Fender sprang for lunch and dinner and where we also could play the entire US-built Guild product line. It was more fun than I can remember having in years  icon_biggrin Afterwards FMIC had a giveaway and I won the grand prize, a D-50 cocobolo dreadnaught, one of 20 in the entire world. It is a fabulous instrument.

The creator of Six Feet Under and True Blood is working on a new series for Cinemax about a sheriff in amish country who knows karate.

Quote
"Banshee," as the project is known, was stationed at HBO before heading over to Cinemax. It's set in a small town in Pennsylvania Amish Country, and will focus on an "enigmatic ex-con who's also an expert in martial arts." The ex-con poses as a murdered sheriff in the town, imposing his "own brand of justice, while cooking up plans that serve his own interest."

Sometimes the universe doesn't give us what we want, but what we need.

That sounds pretty hilarious, especially in light of the rapid encroachment of development in Lancaster County. How's this for the tagline, "He's the badest badass in the cul-de-sac"!

Yeah, they dumped a lot of offense, but Carter has been coming up small in the playoffs and Richards and Lavie didn't "bond", as they say.

They dumped a lot of salary, so I don't expect that they are done picking up players.
