Oh! Fascinating! Can you tell us all why you want that one? What about this specific model do you like?

Well, I love the silver nickle plating as opposed to copper or gold colored... With the triggers, it's much easier to hit different notes with minimal slide movement, plus you can hit WAY lower notes than with a tenor trombone (without triggers) or an F tenor (with one trigger).... and the Vincent Bach Strad is THE top of the line!!

I do hope your father is doing better.

I haven't seen any dream mountain bikes from you yet. Isn't there one on your wish list? Show us what you would like!

Thanks for the well wishes for my Dad. *He literally almost died. *Once they understood the problem, they got him into surgery within a few days and within a week he felt better than he had in years.

Quote[/b] ]Now... what kind of tent is that?
One-man tent. *I haven't decided which brand to ask for yet. *North Face is good but you pay a lot for the name. Great for backpacking since they weigh barely over 2 lbs. *With the rainfly off, you can stargaze and not get eaten alive from mosquitoes.

Quote[/b] ]I haven't seen any dream mountain bikes from you yet.

Steve: *When you are researching new business concepts, check out what a lot of ski lift operators are doing in summer. *They are building downhill biking trails and selling lift ticket for bikers to get their mtb to the top of the mountain. *Neat way to keep their businesses running 12 months/year.

That was some sick stuff! Now if you ask me, that is crazier than skiing http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

How about this! I wonder how it would be to ride a scooter with such a suspension.

As a motorcycle elitist, I never imagined that a mere scooter could provide much of a thrill—until the three-wheeled Piaggio MP3 had me thinking thrice. Its unique suspension system let me shoot through the tight turns of Manhattan at 35 mph by leaning up to 40 degrees (nearly as much as a professional rider). The suspension, shaped like a parallelogram, allows the two front wheels to move up and down independently of each other, so each tilts at the angle that keeps the wheels firmly planted on the ground. With a constant three points of contact, the 250cc MP3 stays stable on wet pavement, on cobblestone, and even in the hands of a speed junkie. $7,000;

As soon as I saw this, I thought why not! Let's add the new vette to the favorite things list LOL.

GM trots out 'Vette with 620 horses (http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2007/autos/0712/gallery.corvette_zr1//index.html) - With the ZR1, which will be officially unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January, General Motors is taking the Corvette into supercar territory with a supercharged V8 that, GM says, will produce at least 620 horsepower.

In contrast, the base model Corvette is powered by a 6.2-liter, 430 horsepower V8, while the higher-performance Corvette Z06 is powered by a 7.0-liter, 505 horsepower engine.
