    Saw JJW at a concert at a fish farm in mid Minnesota years ago....no idea of the year. Was called Trout Air. He comes out on the stage with one other guy. Introduces him......then says he has a...

    Been listening to old JJW cassettes while on the treadmill for the last few days (and howling along when I can breathe). Today it was the Gruene Hall album. Heard some tasty mando that jumped out...

    Re: Room Humidifier recs

    The size of the room makes a big difference....the woodstove hurts also. They are advertised as "Whole House" units....but that is very, very optimistic. I use mine in a smaller bedroom in a 100...

    Re: Room Humidifier recs

    The 5gallon cabinet evaporatives that I have had all have had a float switch that turns off power completely when the water gets low. Shouldn't be an issue at all for that. The problem with most...

    That Inkbird looks much nicer than the Dayton.....you can set ranges instead of just a target.

    I need to add to this.....the external Dayton hygrometer works fine on older style evaporative models with knob controls. Mine died last spring (a motor froze up) and I replaced it with a newer one...

    Re: Not a Gibson

    Some would call it a "tribute" instrument.

    A number of years ago I had picked up a banjolin.....a buddy called it "The Mother Of All Evil". He would only let me play it with him on "When I'm 64". It was a "remarkable" instrument.

    Well....for under 200 you can make a really nice sounding instrument with a washtub, line and a stick. The result is exactly the same if you practice.
