  1. Re: A Touching Story: Ooops...Just noticed that I accidentally edited out, "I worked on a real construction crew last week that was building a house next door", the girl replied, after "at such a young age".
  2. A Touching Story A young family moved into a house next to a vacant lot. One day a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot. The young family's five year old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the workers. Eventually, the construction crew adopted the little girl as kind of a project mascot.

  8. Sorry but, IMO, another advertisement presented in the guise of a "Review".
  9. Or as Shakespeare might have described MQA, "Much Ado About Nothing".
  10. Translation: "The next piece is for the one who stole my heart and my guitar..."
  11. Sam and Moe, two audiophiles, bump into each other on the street. Sam says, "Did you hear the news about Harry? He died suddenly last Sunday". "That's terribly sad news", says Moe, "What did he have?" "McIntosh, Thiel, Linn, and Nordost", replies Sam.
  12. Most or some? I don't know that there is any objective data to support one or the other. 🙂 However, vinyl lovers are probably more enthusiastic in their support of their preferred format.
