Stick a fork in it, The Season of DOOM is over! Now it’s time to sit back by the fire and enjoy the Frosty days ahead, or not.
Long term predictions from the CPC are showing the south to be warm and dry through the winter…..






As we well know, it only takes one deep cold intrusion to freeze everything solid, especially in S. Fl. We’ll have to keep an eye on the radar and hope no blue blobs make it too far south.



Abominable weather ahead? I guess we'll just have to Bumble along to find out!

    Cool, triple K! We just went to Wilmington yesterday to drop off our daughter at her dorm. It was cool seeing snow there... I don’t think that happens too often for them.

    We tied an all time low record for Greenville this morning with -4. The warmup starts tomorrow though. Have a great Sunday everyjuan!

    Well, 30 miles makes a 2 degree difference. It is 68 here now. I almost have the same problem as The Dew. House 70--outside 68. Almost time to open the doors and enjoy the screen doors.

    Ummmm..................Dew.....................I still have run-on sentences. No wrapping yet. TYIA

    ...and a Good Sunday Morning to all!




    Establishment says it's going to rain tonight. Wind is from the south and much warmer, so.... maybe. But I wouldn't trust them to 4-cats the sunrise.

    I bought another Korg (Kross) and a Roland, but still doesn't compare to the Triton. The latest Korg offering similar to the Triton is well over $4K! That's a little too much for a non wealthy hobbyist..
    I also like Kurzweil and old Hammonds and Fender Rhodes, but lugging them around is not my idea of enjoyment. But nothing is more glorious than ripping out a sweet lead on a B-3 and flipping on the Leslie! (listen to "A whiter shade of pale" below. The organ is the dominating instrument. This song and a few others with similar organ sounds inspired me to learn keyboard, well, at least the organ. I was also inspired by many songs in the 70's featuring the Fender Rhodes and of course an acoustic piano.)
    I am actually a bass player. But, people think I am what I am playing at the time, although age and carpel tunnel have diminished my chops somewhat, I can still enjoy playing after practicing for a week or so.
    But enough about me. Surely there are other musicians here in the Bunker?

    My only claim to musical fame was 1st seat (B flat) Clarinet in High School Band. We even cut a record.

    Went to State a few times, got a few ribbons and medals. Played Base Clarinet for a while. Dabbled unsuccessfully on the Sax and then the Flute.

    Tried to learn piano since I know how to read music, just no time for it.

    I sang in the Glee Club in college. Does that count? My kids are the musically talented ones here and they didn't get that from me.

    K, I am not a musician but am the guitar tech for my son. We have about 9 electrics and 3 acoustics. Losing that Carvin must have been devastating. Our highest level guitars are an Epiphone Les Paul and a neck through LTD. I built a few of the guitars and can do a complete Floyd Rose setup of which we have three.

    I have been around musicians and involved in their bands since high school. One of the guys became (not original) the lead guitarist for Badfinger.

    My brother in law has played and taught keyboards for over 30 years. Ensoniq was a board he used but really only known to the people that played them. He used to have several of them but now only one unit with actual keys, the rest are all rack mount.

    Good Morning Bunkerites!

    Some sort of a yucky morning for Aislinn, MSG and the Gulf Coasties......

    Good morning folks. We're at 31 degrees but we have to pay for it with a couple of fresh inches of snow.

    Hmmm, word wrap works on my home pc but not at work. Must be some setting.

    Good morning, afternoon and evening, everyjuan! Yes, it's wet outside which means wet dogs coming in. The rain for the most part has stopped, it's just a steady mist now. I head off today for my son's bi-yearly cardiology visit so I won't be here for breakfast in the morning. Since it's always a scary visit, worrying about if he'll have to have surgery again, I tried to turn it into as much of a fun trip as I could years ago by going down the night before and staying in a hotel. He may be 25, but the fear never leaves over surgery, so we still do it.

    Breakfast’s on the Sideboard: Cheesy bacon and egg hash, sausage and egg breakfast enchiladas, strawberry cheesecake French toast casserole with syrup on the side, Cheesy Tator Tot breakfast ring topped with Canadian bacon, omelets stuffed with steak tips, diced potatoes, bell peppers, onions and mushrooms, fresh fruit, tea or coffee. Enjoy!

    Morning Blakels & Aislinn!

    Sounds quite balmy up there Blakels, just keep away from the melting snoh piles

    Parents never stop caring/worrying about their kiddos even if they don't have a medical condition. That would just up the ante.

    Better have a big breakfast while I can!

    I'll have Cheesy bacon and egg hash, sausage and egg breakfast enchiladas, Cheesy Tator Tot breakfast ring topped with Canadian bacon, omelets stuffed with steak tips, diced potatoes, bell peppers, onions and mushrooms and coffee - TYVM and have a good trip!

    There aren't many Luthiers around these days. Nice to know Juan.
    I too have a Les Paul Epiphone that I have tweaked. I like it because it doesn't have a "whammy bar." With some nicer pickups and keys, it is better than a Gibson, although identical in most respects, the Gibson neck is weaker at the nut (personal experience).
    I also have an Ibanez Les Paul in the Philippines. My next guitar was going to be Fender Telecaster, because of its unique sound. But, when I got the idea, about 10 years ago, I was not thinking so much about how long I was going to live. You can only cram so much stuff in your life and once you reach a certain point in your life, you have to face reality and whittle down your hopes and dreams to the doable.
    It's not all bad.
    Acknowledging reality and acting accordingly, is all a part of the wisdom that should come with age, which is probably the one and only "perk" you will get, that and grandchildren, which I will probably not have. But I got the other thing, which will rear its ugly head and stop me from drinking, overindulging in anything and generally keeps me from having fun like I used to. Youth suffer from the lack of wisdom, but they still have fun doing it. Still, there are certain things I used to love doing that I don't anymore, like riding a roller coaster, or a dirt bike up a steep hill, or any other thrill producing activity, except a few that I won't mention, but not anymore.
    No, sir!
    But I find other ways to enjoy the bit of life I have left.
    I have never been bored for a minute of my life and I am annoyed by people who say they are bored as if it is someone else's job to occupy their mind with something interesting. My dad used to say that people who got bored had a self inflicted mental disease. But he used to say a lot of things. I cannot empathize with such Juans. I am grateful for every second of life I have and to be able to sit unoccupied while my mind is free to run, is something to be treasured! The down side is that times flies quickly.
    So now that I am making a new family, I had to discard some of my plans. I wouldn't mind having a new guitar, but the Juan I have sits too much now, it would sit even more and cost money I need to put somewhere else.
    See? That's the line of reasoning that old people develop. A younger man will reason differently and believe he has the time and strength to do everything!
    My view point and life experience has led me to believe that you should not have to wait till life is almost over to do your "bucket list." But nobody ever does, because when we are young we ignore the counsel of the old, and by the time we realize how wise they were, we are out of time to heed their words, and it takes us that long to appreciate the value of that wisdom, which doesn't always hit you over the head like a hammer, but gradually and insidiously, it manifests itself and overcomes disbelief and denial and it peels away the philosophy that you had developed from youth, to reveal the bare truth at last and with no escape, you are forced to deal with the reckoning.
    But Juan thing is for sure, enjoying what you have and your family and friends now, is never a waste of time.
    If you get bored easily, you might want to get that fixed.

    Heavenly outside. Doors open, screen doors keepin' the curious raccoons out (they are looking IN, however), bugs singin'--it's a beautiful night in the South, Tater.

    PS Mighty Dew, the sentences still aren't wrapping. TYIA

    Evening Peeps - I was just wondering where MSG was hiding out, Hi MSG! Dr. Mark has disappeared again, hopefully he'll show up again soon.

    Triple K has indeed acquired great wisdom with age, and a new wife, the combination is quite mind altering. Good on you Triple K!

    Thank goodness that crazy snow queen is gone, good riddance and stay away!

    Let's see if I can carry on the blog killing tradition.
