Hello Dburt, your story reminds me of the PCS cell phone feasibility study we conducted in early 1993 (I was working at AT&T at the time). We would place a portable transmitter on top of a tall building then drive all over Los Angeles in a specially equipped van monitoring the signal sent. The v...

Hello Dusty, happy that you are able to post. At the very least, earthquakes are rude and more than that, can be terrible. The pictures that I have seen remind me of the one that hit Paso Robles, California in late 2003. Buildings that were supported by brick or had brick facades fared poorly. My la...

No, it's a racket. Been going on many years here in California. Back in the early to mid '60s my mom had a '55 Chevy that was stolen twice when we owned it. Easy to take and popular at the time. Both times it wound up in impound yards for over a week before we were notified of its recovery. Its part...

Chuck, you are so right when it comes to our state being broke. It's a shame (sham?), since we are burdened with some of the highest tax rates in the nation. If the politicos ran things even halfway that they should be run, our streets would be paved in gold (or at least gold colored asphalt). Your ...

In the latter part of 2007 my wife (Carin) and I got the experience of moving my father-in-law (Bob) from South Central / West Oregon to Los Angeles. This wound up being 6 trips, the last 3 with trucks rented from U-Haul. All were 17 footers (the largest that would fit down our driveway). All were F...

Earlier this evening, the wife and I took our next door neighbor out for dinner for her birthday. In conversation, a story about our pets surfaced. One afternoon about 7 or 8 years ago I brought out to our front yard our dog, Kona and my gander goose, Henri. Kona was a large Belgian / German Shepard...

Hi Rudy and thank you for posting the pictures of the Ford and Studebaker. Brought back some good memories. When first being able to drive (legally), friends of my parents would let me drive their 1950 Ford (almost identical to the 1949). What a great car. It was quiet with the flathead V8, 3 speed ...

Don't know where else to put this one. Just got back from one of our regular hangouts and someone put John Lennon on the juke. It made me feel melancholy and caused tears to roll from my eyes. It has been 29 years. I miss him still. It is so unfair.

Analog vinyl recordings have overtones (harmonics) on them that we cannot consciously hear but we do perceive them. It gives the recording a sound stage or a depth that makes it sound as if you are there (the recording has to be a good one for this to take place). Digital recordings are for the most...
