I was just wondering if anybody might find this as interesting as I have.  I have collected a lot of generally small bore tenor trombones over the years.  An interaction with Blast - Mr. Stearn recently re-awakened my interest in some of my Rewynolds Trombones.  The Reynolds trombones that I have are a 1952 Contempora, a 1979 Contempora(.520 bore and .515 bore), a 1961ish Contempora small bore 71/2 in bell .500 bore( the bell sn dates to 1962 but the slide dates to 1961), a 1961 Aregenta, a professional series model 73, and an older professional f-att .525 bore.  When I start to see whitch bells would work together it gave me some fun results.  The '52 and '79 Contempora trombones are completely compatible.  The model 73 slide works well with the 71/2 contempora bell(the original slide is in really bad condition)  The funny thing is that the '61 Argenta slide will not mate up with '79 Contepora bell.  Just wondering if anyone might be interested about this information.

The Russian “fantasy” failed? How so? Indictments and guilty pleas in pretty much record time from an independent counsel... it hasn’t failed, it is rolling in a rather unpleasant direction.

Cheers,
Andy

That's the talking point. The Russian probe has landed a few fish and they're getting too close to the Prez. The widely respected Mueller is now being set up to be removed. You'll notice that none of the beefs against him amounts to anything, but it's an excuse. The president cannot have his funding, or his campaign support, examined.

The Russians won.

Won't work.  The Republican party has developed severe allergies to science and evidence.  They won't stop until we are back in the Stone Age,

Meanwhile in the war on smart people, the dumb people have issued new rules...
 
CDC gets list of forbidden words: fetus, transgender, diversity
 
The Trump administration is prohibiting CDC officials from using these words or phrases in any official documents being prepared for next year’s budget:
 
“vulnerable”
“entitlement”
“diversity”
“transgender”
“fetus”
“evidence-based”
"science-based"

So ironic they're so enamored with the term snowflakes and why ...
 
Amp it up then, if they're going to be such brazen intellectual cowards, make it backfire on the frackwads. And release the revised docs to the public/press before they're released to the White Nursery, or simultaneously.
 
“vulnerable” = threatened/endangered
“entitlement” = handout or indirect/lateral earning (depending upon the context)
“diversity” = healthy variation/variability
“transgender” = distinctive/non-typical gender or non-standard/alternative gender ... use mundane and non-mundane perhaps?
“fetus” = blastocyst, zygote, embryo or nonviable prenatal organism/viable prenatal organism
“evidence-based” = evidentially valid/verified/supported
"science-based" = scientifically valid/verified/supported

Yeah.  It's best to use metric units.  Imperial units seem to change like diapers.

Yup.  Imperial Gallons are not like the ones here in the US.

When Comey made the slightly odd choice to reopen the email case right before the election, the word was that anti-Clinton elements in the FBI forced his hand.

...

And I sure didn't see any of our Right Wing friends complaining about it.  Even though it actually violates election law.  There was an investigation of Trump going on at the same time that was not revealed until after the election, as it was supposed to.

So it works one way but not the other.  I get it.

Yeah, but those Republicans damaged the party so badly that the Goldwater lunatic fringe was able to take over the party.
