Todd and I were discussing dogs, and as this forum has not had one of these threads in a number of years, at least that I have seen, I thought to post one. Cats, hamsters, snakes, horn toads, fish all are welcome.

The Poo-Wawa and Yorkie-Poo are my sister's, they spend a lot of time with me though, she just lives down the street. She never takes her dogs places, so I always pick them up to accompany my dogs on our daily outings.

We have a great spacious dog park with trails through the woods and a dog beach on the lake where the dogs can swim.

The 2 miniature Australian Shepherds, the miniature Aussie-Poo , and the Chi-Weenie are mine.

The Australian Shepherd breed actually did not originate in Australia, the name is a misnomer. They are a mix of several herding dogs brought to California and the American Southwest in the 19th century, and native American dogs. They often have blue eyes, native Americans had a name for them, "ghost dogs".

Scientific American graded the candidates on their answers to 20 questions about various aspects of scientific endeavor. The questions were refined by a group of scientific institutions representing more than 10 million scientists and engineers, with nonprofit organization ScienceDebate.org as the facilitator.


The results. That Trump is a mindless gerbil is not surprising. And that Johnson, who did not know what Alleppo was, or who could not name even one world leader, well that his is not much better than Trump is also not surprising. But it does not matter to Trump's herd, they will still vote for him. Fortunately as things have gone, with more to come, nobody else will. America and the World dodged a bullet on this one (barring some horrific miracle saving him). Thank god for the liberal press taking on the challenge of saving the country.



Clinton: 64

Trump: 7

Johnson: 30

Stein: 44

Sweden! Just thought I would mention it as this is a Swedish website.

Ranking of Countries for Best Place for Girls to Live

As an added extra, best place for anyone to live....

Norway!

Best for Anybody


Now here is the kicker. A list of least religious countries. Curiously enough, they are also at the top of the list of BEST COUNTRIES to live in.

On plagiarism suit by the Estate of Randy Wolfe, the deceased guitarist of the band Spirit. Jimmy Page had testified that the song's progression in "Stairway to Heaven" had more in common with Chim Chim Cheree from Mary Poppins than Spirit's "Taurus".

Immediately after the verdict lawyers at Disney Inc. announced that they will be initiating a plagiarism suit against Led Zeppelin.

I am talking about tube amps here.

I have a half dozen large ones. A couple of them have a little hum, ether 60 cycle or 120 cycle. It is only noticeable at bed room levels.

Before I go on, yes, I like playing a big amp even at bed room levels. I don't like small amps. I don't like small amps, or plugging into some digital device rather than my big tube amps. My big tube amps are part of my manhood. I consider playing anything but a big tube amp analogous to going outside not wearing any pants.

Also, when people ask about this, most guys start taking about pickups and cords and noise gates and things. NO NO NO! What I am talking about has nothing to do with this. If you won't accept that, please go on to the next thread. I am talking about that background 60 cycle hum that you likely get from some tubes having capacitance, or 120 cycle hum that you likely get from filter capacitors not doing the job. Or perhaps something else picking up the capacitance. But it occurs even when no guitar or anything whatever plugged in, even with the volume turned to zero, so long as your master volume is turned up.

Any thoughts on this? I sometimes think that so long as it is not too loud, well some Amplifiers have a little hum, just the way it is. How do you feel? I have one amp still in warranty with a little of this hum, I think 120 cycle. And another I just recently purchased that also has the same hum just about. I have heard some guys say that they have never had an amp that did not have some background hum. But I have some with hardly any at all. I am trying to decide whether to complain about the one I just purchased and ask for a replacement, or if I am being too picky. I like getting what I want, but like to avoid being a jack ass when possible, even when dealing with a large merchant.
