That's my kind of gardening; green side up, chainsaw and flamethrower. This stuff survived millions of years without my help!Approve

That was a real treat Dave P, many thanks, using a thumb pick on a resonator really gives a turbo effect, wish I had one. Neither instrument had a strap, which I found interesting.
Have you come across Taimane Gardner?  Simply phenomenal. 

Ah yes, the B33 circlip, I have a dim memory of misery. I swopped the stanchions for slightly wider and stiffer Roadholders in the end, and kept the outer fork legs, so I could use worn out bushes, which were fairly common.
My uke class are learning The Good the Bad and the Ugly -- I might have got the fast chord changes off by the time the world approaches the new ¨Normal.¨
They played in a church recently, and it went down well, though the full meaning of ¨Born to be Wild ¨ might have been ¨lost in translation.¨

I've always used a thumb pick when playing my resonator guitar.It makes all the difference. Sorry, no Guzzi content.

Taimane Gardner! Yes, astonishing.

 I think you're mistaken  there Mike  , I'm pretty sure it's 400,000 recorded infections world wide  so far..   and approx  20,000 deaths .

I note the clocks go forward this weekend.

Could we make it four months this time instead of just an hour?

I never understood why BSA had those daft multi-diameter stanchions that mean you can't just assemble everything from one end like you can with Roadholders etc but have to juggle bits about in a tiny space.

SO I call them took a while to get through and in a 90 minute call, yes you read that right 90 minutes, poor lass dealing with this all day, she had to go ask advice, resultant advice was contact your Dr to get a 12 week sick/isolation note but she went thro questions and yes ( I get hay fever every yr the hawthorn blossom hits i get hit, but taking no risks , which I totally get, i may have the CV-19 ...ok but the isolation note is 14 days, seems the text i got was a pre empt should be a letter by 29th , meanwhile I have to self cert for 7 days whilst this gets sorted as luckily i get full sick pay but they need evidence as do the insurance companies ...... i get it is manic i get the need to shield but there must be millions in this limbo and i bet a good number filling in the online getting 7-14 days off !! i am one that would far rather be at work ....yeh i know i am daft

Good for you, Ken. Yes I know health workers are doing a great job but most people seem to be taking the delivery drivers etc for granted. You blokes are keeping the country going👍

Being able to get stuff to carry on with projects is helping preserve my sanity no end, so I’m also really grateful for those in the postal service and delivery industry for keeping going. They really deserve a bonus.

It also relies on companies selling online still being there.

Bit worried about ordering things now, because if the company isn't working you pay now but won't get the goods for months perhaps.
