  2. Poll: Re: Poll for the Song a Week Social Group Week #529

    Yes, Simon, Lantern is a good tune. I leaned it, before Blind Mary turned into another come-from-behind winner. So hopefully Lantern will get another at bat. There are some petty funny comments about...

    Re: F5 with an OVAL hole?

    I like your thinking. I think I'd give that Collings a serious look and then go from there. I also like your adventurous ideas as to fonts and type sizes. Not sure why we're all always using the...
