1  Practice Break / Found on the 'Net / Re: Conn 88H- NOT! on: Mar 15, 2017, 09:56AM
There is a 66h which is supposedly a low end 88h. Might be related to the STD6. The wrap looks like a 52h.

The STD6 is an excellent horn. But the model # sounds more like a medical condition  :D

4  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Yamaha 691 - any thoughts? on: Mar 12, 2017, 09:36AM
Pretty solid jazz horn with options (what with the 3 pipes)

My only personal gripe with Yamaha horns is their lack of personality. Not bad. They just don't in my mind stand out.

They are consistent though. Play 100 of them and they will all be identical in playing characteristics.

Lacquer used to be a problem. Not sure if that is the case anymore.

Covering his a**. T is such a slime ball.

No, I didn't like Hillary but she got my vote hoping to keep the buffoon sexist con man out of office.

DD, why should you be bothered when I compare your style to Trump's? You seem to admire him so well.

I am not pursuing this purchase any longer. Interesting though.

His prices are insanely low, even considering missing parts. The large Eb he is selling looks very decent....especially for $95!  Amazed

But hey, if it amuses him to make unfounded and irresponsible claims, who are we to get in the way of his fun?

11  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Repairs, Modifications and Maintenance / Conn New Wonder Tuba parts replacement on: Mar 10, 2017, 05:40PM
I am looking at a Conn New Wonder tuba, 3 valve in Eb. It is for sale locally - for $35  Amazed

Problem is (and not a small one), not all the valves and valve caps are present. Even then I am thinking of making that small investment and take a chance that I can somehow find parts for it.

Is this a ridiculous assumption? I must be crazy to tackle this.

I don't provide citations. If you don't agree with me, look it up for yourself. Simple really.

How convenient. You make claims and shrug off requests for cited sources. Right out of Trump's style book.
13  Practice Break / Purely Politics / Re: Our unbalanced POTUS on: Mar 10, 2017, 10:05AM
Those Christians will cite ISIS as the prototypical Muslims saying anybody who isn't Muslim doesn't count either.

It's an attitude that should have died out 500 years ago.

Ironic isn't it?
14  Practice Break / Purely Politics / Re: GOP Health Care on: Mar 10, 2017, 09:12AM
Keep blaming Obama DD. That is real classy.

Your party has both houses locked up and your boy 45 is in the White House. So it is ALL on them.
15  Practice Break / Purely Politics / Re: Our unbalanced POTUS on: Mar 10, 2017, 09:11AM
Russ, I couldn't agree more. Where in the hateful and divisive rhetoric of the so called family values/Christian party are Christ's teachings of love thy neighbor?

Nowhere. The disconnect disgusts me to no end.

A girl I grew up who still attends the CofC church I went to has no problem with innocents dying in the middle east because of the wars and invasions because 'they aren't Christian'   :(

And when health care is brought up, she has hers (she works for FEMA, so she is basically on the government teat). I asked her about the low income folks and their health needs. She didn't care. She has her needs covered just fine. So, basically screw the less fortunate. I got the idea that she thinks that poor people just don't work hard enough to afford good insurance, so it is on them.

That is not the brand of Christianity I was taught.

Sad

Odd note:

Trump's popularity is still poor...
http://www.gallup.com/poll/201617/gallup-daily-trump-job-approval.aspx

and yet... if you scroll down to the bottom of this one,
http://www.gallup.com/poll/203198/presidential-approval-ratings-donald-trump.aspx
the GOP opinion has consistently held around 88%

Doesn't surprise me that people who elected this buffoon are too proud to admit that they screwed up. They'll go to the grave without doing so. Pride is not a pretty thing.

Reports are that no one wants their name attached to their version of health care bill.

You can bump this one up and reignite an existing discussion if it looks like there's anything in it you'd like to bump up and reignite.

reignite is right  :D

I can't believe that anyone would take that article serious.

I'm not surprised you dismiss it wholesale.

Born and raised in Texas, I see a lot of what is described in this article....in my immediate family, some of which who swear they aren't racist  - because they have some blacks who they work with. But their attitudes and beliefs are transparently obvious.

They are mostly Church of Christ two or three times a week service attendees, yet they hate and fear anyone who isn't Christian. And many of their actions and statements are hardly 'Christ-like'

I love them, but they have their collective heads up their a**.
