    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...

    Two Personal "Barriers" Broken In One Week!

    A good week for me: On Tuesday, I weighed in at 199 - the first time in 21 years that I've been under 200 pounds! I've lost 46 pounds since April 23rd, and gotten in the best shape I've been in since 1975. I happily turned in my "Clydesdale Membership Card" (A somewhat derisive term used in...

    How Long Can You Hold Your Breath?

    When I was a younger man, I used to be able to hold my breath for 2 1/2 minutes. I remember doing a "free dive" of 50 feet (and back up) in Long Pond in Wellfleet Mass. (on Cape Cod) when I was in my teens. Since I'm in pretty good shape now, I was curious to see if I could still hold my...

    Will Texas (or any other State(s) Secede From The Union?

    It seems that the "climate" is getting ripe for the possibility of Texas or another State or States seceding from the Union. Anyone think there's really a chance of such a thing happening in the next 5-10 years?:hmm

    (Bike) Helmets Save Lives!

    Two weeks ago while riding my usual 26 mile paved bike trail, I rounded one of the "blind curves" at ~25mph. There in my lane (the paved trail is about 12 feet wide, divided by a yellow "center line") was a Gen-X bimbo moron on her beach cruiser bike parked with both feet on the ground. I had...
