    @ Booli
    There's nothing on the forum about a '4' yet, but I hope when there is it will have enough ram to cope with modern web browsers, & have at least USB3.

    And on New Years day there will be a SUPERMOON
    The moon will be the closest to the earth it has been in the past 70 years.
    Hope you have clear skies to see it. We have snow and cloud so most
    likely we will miss it.

    LOL yes I saw it this morning @ ~5:30 AM USA EST when the 'call of nature' woke me, and peered out the north-western facing bathroom window and thought it was really odd to see the moon so bright and so low in the sky.

    In my half-asleep brain, I mused 'oh yea full moon and/or lunar eclipse something something' and when I woke up later thought maybe it was a dream until just now your post reminded me of it.

    I will have to look around and see if there are any pix/vids from NASA or NOAA.

    Even though I was still half-asleep, I recall that the moon was pretty intensely illuminated but without my glasses it was all fuzzy.

    This is just great and perfect timing for me...

    Thanks for this and especially the YT playlist.

    I dont know any of those songs or artists, and have been craving some new sounds.

    You have provided me with a great starting point. Kudos to you brother!

    I drank champagne last night that was over 50 years old. My late in-laws won a bottle of champagne in a raffle in the mid-60s. They put it aside to save for a special occasion, and it was never opened. By now, it was Schrodinger’s bottle: until we open it, it is both wine AND vinegar. Last night, my daughter Molly (who’s of legal drinking age) decided the time had come to open it. It was flat, but surprisingly hadn’t turned to vinegar. It didn’t taste bad, but Molly and I both noticed a touch of an almond flavor. I Googled and found that vintage-aged champagnes often acquire an almond flavor. So it was drinkable, but we didn’t really care for the taste. We put the bottle aside and opened the champagne I bought last week.

    Watching one of Kevin's vids earlier, reminded me how many cables seem to be involved in making and recording music. Saw this brilliant idea on YouTube recently ... I'm certainly going to try it; all you need to do is go to the loo a lot! Thank you, "Mr. Tom"!

    Just something I'm working on, needs lots more practice, but thought I'd let you know that I haven't deserted my ukes.
