    Adios Big Dry Gulch!

    Well, Texas Blues left HIS "Big Dry Gulch" (Vegas) last year - now Mrs. The Ganz & myself are leaving OUR Big Dry Gulch after only one year here in Phoenix. It's official - we're goin' back to SoCal! I was close to MISERABLE here; The Boss was lukewarm at best. No offense to the people of...

    Got Ants? Not any MORE!

    So, for the last 9 months our house has been OWNED by small black "sugar ants" - we have just been RENTING from THEM! I've tried ALL the previously successful ant bait/traps - Grants, Raid, Black Flag, etc. Not only did those not KILL them, it seemed to make them STRONGER and more prolific...

    1999-2001 Isuzu Vehicross - Anyone Else Into These?

    I've had mine for 18 months now - bought it from the original owner in the high desert. Garaged since new, never off-roaded. Pretty much stock, except for a new CD player; plus I removed the rear seat. My buddy just finished wet-sanding and polishing the entire vehicle; not to brag, but the...

    Justice Prevails! (Roman Polanski Content)

    Hat's off to Switzerland for having the nuts to put the kay-bosh on this fuckin' goat rodeo attempt for the L.A. Prosecutor to shore up his future political status! Stop wasting taxpayer dollars on THIS happy horseshit - my opinion of Switzerland has just gone (back) UP several notches!:applaude

    Gladys gets "new" tuners!

    When I bought Gladys 8 years ago, her original D169400 Patent # Klusons were "crumbled", as MOST D169400 Tuners are; either crumbled to unusability or carmelized/shrunken. I happened to have a MINT set of PAF (Pre-'59) tuners with nice, "swirly" tips that I installed on her; after all, with the...

    "Project 68" Takes Off!

    Wow, this is like my FIRST post in this area! I was a lucky buyer at the recent Arlington show. Most of you know that I am already fortunate enough to own a real '59 Burst, as well as a "warmed up" '94 Murphy R9 Historic, which my good friend and fine luthier Terry Mueller removed the TR...
