    Another forum I go to bans altogether besmirching businesses. Or at least naming them. I think it's probably ok to vent a bit - (I ordered a pick, and six weeks later it still hasn't arrived ... no names, no pack drill, just a vent. Hopefully, you get a bit of 'yeah, that's bad, hope it works out', but some people feel a bit better after venting). On another forum, a post went up stating that the poster hadn't had any response from a well-known local company. Turned out the respected owner was dying of cancer. You just never know.

    Wow! What a video. Seriously, I'm just blown away.

    I hope the rest of you can get it to load because that was worth the two hours of refreshing! Stay strong!

    Well Scott, you are an old hound dog to sniff out these unexpected gems of the mandolin underworld!

    By the way, I have read that the production of the BM-bio-flic is well under way and should hit the movie theatres at X-mas. That should be a blast.

    I love the PayPal concept. Much like you would consider the realtor fee when setting a price for your house, sellers using PayPal should build in the cost of using this resource along with the cost of shipping before establishing a sale price.

    Bravo, I'm glad the Cafe has taken a strong position on this issue. IMO, sellers should honor the contract they've made with PayPal TOS if they offer PayPal as a payment gateway!

    Smart advice.

    This site is so good that if I didn't already play the mandolin, I'd take it up just so I could hang out here! Thanks Scott, moderators and the entire crew for keeping this place great.

    You forgot to mention the move to the new 20 story Mandolin Cafe World Headquarters building slated for 04/01/2018

    I'm very much looking forward to this interview with Bobby. That's an interesting teaser to introduce it. Not only the fans of Bobby and these other great artists, but from the sound of it, all musicians should pay close attention to this.

    Attemped scam last week. Thanks to my bank for making me aware of fraudulent checking account. Nothing lost on my end.
