I hope you all have a good experience.  Don't let family and/or self-imposed limits get in the way.

I'll be with my mom for a few days.  She's 89 and has a new hip (there should be a joke somewhere in there).  The cool part is that she can come home from rehab to hang out with my sister, brother-in-law, Sherry and me.  Smiley

Also, after 15 years of getting to know one another, Sherry and I are getting officially hitched in mid-January on Ocracoke Island.  Womens be relentless.  Wink

Seeing this makes getting old easier.  From the little girl charming hearts at Hornfests to a talented and strong woman.  All the best.

Cool, I worried that less than half price meant impending doom.  I have a pair on the way and may go for many more to help my boys here at the Horn Shoppe.   Grin

"But really, let's all have a good day together.  God Bless us all."

You nailed it, Henry. I have much to be thankful for, if only I look.

We all need to count blessings.

Yep, I've heard that charred human flesh is tasty.  So, let's fire it up and let nature takes it's course.

But really, let's all have a good day together.  God Bless us all.

Just a heads up... again.  The ACA is in stock at the moment.  I haven't built mine yet.  It was a comedy of errors.  I was charged and then it went away.
 Not paying attention, I didn't notice my order was voided.  The diyAudio site is a bit confused when using a chromebook.  My second ACA kit is here, but the chassis will be another month since it crosses the big waters.  I'm in no hurry, but hopefully I'll have something under the Christmas tree.

The price is close to $360 for a single kit (shipped).  The chassis is nice and it's all in one box for a stereo amp.

Also, I see that Nelson has designed an active crossover for those interested in bi-amping.  It's on the same website and is about $300.

Well said.  As a stupid retirement decision, I chose to learn and do machining.  In 2010, there were few jobs to be had and difficult to land.  Now I get daily job feeds from Indeed and the employment in that field have quadrupled... and at better pay. 

Now, anybody that wants to work can work.  Can you see a pattern?

One more thing about knobbies... I do like the volume knob on mine a little better than the black.  It's a satin finished silver that's smooth and simple, and looks really good.  Maybe that could be another choice for a few more dollars... or Ed could simply supply the part number for those of us obsessing over such silly things.  Huh

I just like the satin silver against the black chassis, no bling but a little less retro IMO.  Smiley

Another believer!

Regarding the knobs, I think they are a good fit.  The different shapes make operation intuitive and no markers are needed for the selector.

You left out "Non Sexual Man Love". Smiley

Sorry to correct, but that should "non-people of color, non-sexual man love".  Oh well, it's cool to be "non".

I'm getting the chance to see a non-people of color band tonight, fronted by Chris Robinson (the former non-Black Crowes front man).  It should be a non-fest.  I hope that I see some other non-people there.

If you can read more than a paragraph of LaWana's incoherent steaming mass of dung, she states: "non-people of color".  Gosh, and all these years I diminished my presence in the universe as a white guy.   Grin

I'm a fan of big knobs.  Go Ed!

I'm so sorry Ed.  He was a great cat.  Smiley

I have five between now and December.  Everything from Asleep At The Wheel to The Kentucky Headhunters.  I gave away tickets to Jason Isbell because I'll be at my mom's surgery.  I have been trying to see everyone I can while I can, and it's pretty cool.  I worked long and hard to get here.   Grin
