Serious life and death stuff. I have a family history of hypertension - high blood pressure. Thankfully my blood...

    Wow. The purchase exceeded the expectationz

    My stepson is 28. I came into his life when he was 9. Although he saw his real father very often (thankfully) he spent the majority of time with us, so the brunt of his upbringing came from me. He’s now 28 with 3 small kids and recent divorce I’m still proud of him. This kid has severe ADHD and...

    How do y’all handle sheet music on stage?

    Just wondering how y’all handle sheet music and chord charts on stage or in practice? Do you use paper sheets in a folder or are you electronic? I personally use an iPad and a iPad stand that actually attaches to my mic stand. I see a lot of both. Plus do you bring your own mic to gigs? What...

    The Fret Buzz Conundrum

    I did a setup for a fella the other day on an Eastwood Mandocaster… a little 8string mandolin shaped like a Tele. The owner claims to have bought it new and how he presented it to me was how it came out of the factory. It was instantly obvious that Eastwood’s QC (at least for this instrument) is...

    Astronaut Calculation Device… what is it?

    I was watching a video on YouTube of a tour of the ISS and I keep seeing a recurring item that looks like a small calculator but ostensibly doesn’t seem to have “enough” buttons but probably has just the right amount. Anyone know exactly what it is and what it’s called?
