  1. That would be an ecumenical matter!

  2. Trying to sell gear on FB marketplace is torturous. I swear people get a kick out of wasting your time.

      On the other side of the coin was the really lovely Iranian chap who collected the free sofa I'd advertised, and out of the blue brought me 2 bottles of wine and a pot plant for no reason other than he wanted me to get something nice out of the deal too. Smashing bloke, we need more of him.

      I advertised some garage shelving units for free on the local FB marketplace earlier this year. I would never have guessed it would be so difficult to give stuff away. I had the same thing as you Ainsley: "can I pick up in the morning?" followed by two days of radio silence... and one who wanted me to deliver it too, and then seemed put out when I declined on the grounds that he was already getting it for nothing...

      Oh yes there is.

      5. What the hell is a 'blessed' instrument? Did the pope spray it with water or something?

  5. ‘At last’, my SIRE V7 maybe finally arriving tomorrow after a 3 month wait 🤞

  6. Yesterday I bought a Nepalese winter woolly hat. It has dreadlocks. This has pleased me immensely.

  7. Joy: realising that Crich Tramway Museum is only half an hour down the road from my holiday let. :D

    Heartbreak: finding that yesterday was its last open day this year. :(

      Starting to think I'm cursed :(

      Ok, so we took a trip to the MoSI today... I particularly wanted to see the old station & goods shed, and the aerospace building. 

      Yup, you guessed it. Both exhibits are closed.

      FFS.

      I looked up the Heights of Abraham earlier... guess what, they closed for the year on Sunday too :lol:

      Today, had a lovely walk round the Derwent reservoirs. Tomorrow, it's off to Manchester on the train to visit the Science and Industry Museum.

  11. What I love about LinkedIn is how it knows me so well. Earlier it suggested that I might want to connect with Grant Shapps.

      You were lucky to get anything. Liam Werrity Fox only ever responds to praise. I'm still waiting for a reply to 2 emails I sent him concerning Dominic Cummings in May 2020.

      Love the colour. I'd definitely take it, were it not for fiscal and geographical challenges.

  13. Before the pandemic I asked about the possibility of organising some jams in a local pub. The landlord seemed up for it, but obviously we couldn't proceed.

    Now he's ready for music to go ahead, but he wants 3 hours of background music whilst people dine, rather than a jam. Not really something I can manage.

    1. Rich

      Rich

      Sounds to me like he wants music for free. Hmmm. Don't tell me... 'exposure', right? :lol:

  14. A few Gins later she said “you can buy that Sire [V7] thing you’re looking at” - in the bag before the hangover remorse kicks in. Incoming LPB/maple V7 4 sometime in Oct 😉

  15. Just typed ‘live environment’ in a thread but autocorrect decided it should be ‘love envelope’ :facepalm::lol:

  16. Brilliant!!! The guy I work with/share a van with at work has just tested positive for covid.

      That sucks. Too many employers are all too ready to play fast and loose with their employees' wellbeing. I sincerely hope you stay well and manage to dodge the lurgy. I guess you're having to isolate from your loved ones too?

      This is a proper grower. Listened to it again and it's damned fine I have to say. Awaiting more with keen interest.

      Just watching/listening now :) 4 minutes in and I'm liking it so far.

      (Not comfortable with the strobe video effects though... a more prominent warning would be a good idea, i.e. one that you don't have to hit SHOW MORE to find... luckily my epi isn't actually photosensitive)

      Good stuff.

  19. Had a dream I owned a Les Paul junior bass in TV Yellow - but it was an 8 string. Now I need to build one.....

      Rich

      In your dream, did you manage to solve what I imagine would be simply colossal neck-dive?

  20. If I were an old Dimarzio Model One, where would I be hiding?

    1. Rich

      Rich

      Alternatively, I would hide in a place where my owner would never think of going in a million years -- e.g. behind the panty liners and leg waxing kits.

    1. Rich

      Rich

      If I were an old Dimarzio Model One, I would be a very wily and cunning old Dimarzio Model One and would be hiding amongst a bunch of other things that looked a bit like old Dimarzio Model Ones.

  22. Tonight's rehearsal and Friday's gig cancelled. Singer has tested +ve. 

    1. Rich

      Rich

      Sadly I fear you are correct. Things will never be completely the same again for live music. A few of the places that were regular gigs of ours before The Event have disappeared permanently from our calendar.
