    Thanks TomBomb. I just made one with my 6 year old. Not as perfect as above but doable and he loves it!

    Are you doing a bit of Quantini'ing during this?

    I have to admit my wife and I are.

    I even saw an official word from my state - NY - that Liquor Stores were deemed Essential. :)

    I made up a new rule - Quarantini Time is Earlier on weekends than weekends.
    That is now an Official Rule.

    Here is to taking this seriously, doing our part properly, while, not dwelling in negative, and trying to find some positive during the journey. Like more time with my family, working without commuting - until we close, and gratitude for food on the table.

    Cheers. May God bless us all and keep us safe.

    Trying my very, very best to not annoy Mrs. 'blue. Her school district is shut down so she's home every day. Pray for me! :)

    My Wife and I moved. Been in old house 30 years. Had basses and amp upstairs, downstairs and in man cave.

    I’m sorting through furniture and explaining the number of basses and amps, esp considering I am no longer making money from playing. Luckily, she is pretty good about it.

    Cooking, baking, more cooking, and bonfires at night with our neighbors while we all stay six feet apart.
    I took a mid afternoon nap for the first time in years in a deck chair behind our house. Our property backs up to protected wetlands. Oh my, that was so refreshing. I'm going to try it again tomorrow.

    I used to have a GFA-545 back in the mid '80s that I used with a "home-built" GAS Thalia until I bought my, still current, Aragon 2004 and 24k in 1989.

    I remember Great American Sound. Never owned any of their products. But I did own an SAE preamp and power amp duo in 1973/1974. SAE was founded by GAS ex-employees, as I recall. The SAE duo were my first 'separates' as I began my home stereo journey. Don't be impressed. Around that same time I possibly forever soiled my reputation by purchasing a pair of Bose 901's. Which means I could be tone-deaf. To my credit, I returned them in less than 30 days. Because they really sucked. Oh, the memories. I'll step away from the computer now. :whistle:

    I'm not sure what relationship there may have been between GAS and SAE, but I do know that there were GAS products in an SAE warehouse in Compton (IIRC) in the '80s. I went there once to get a GAS Sleeping Beauty MC cartridge I still have. I friend of mine from my time in L.A. was the engineer/designer for GAS; it was his company. He gave me the PS and preamp boards for the Thalia I built-up in a 3-space rack case. Andy and I used to do some photography together and he and my brother had designed and built four 100 Watt Class A monoblock power amps. They worked out of Andy's garage workshop in Oxnard, a very typical So Cal audio world thing to do. There were two PIE amps in the rafters of the garage; they were the same 4000 watt PIE amps that Phil Lesh used with the GD. Andy designed and built them, along with various other electronic goodies, like noise cancelling microphone systems.

    Yesterday I was pretty depressed and found it very hard to get motivated. Today I pulled myself out into the practice room and played a lot. I worked on some challenging material; mostly brushing up some songs I learned a few years ago to improve my chops, but have never played live. When that was done I pulled out my old note reading book for bass and started working through some of those exercises, since my note reading skills could use a lot of improvement. My husband and I played some jazz together and eventually I fired up Logic Pro and wrote a few bars of something or other. I'll listen back to that tomorrow and if I like it, maybe I'll keep writing.

    My husband took a walk and the housemate went to the golf course to hit some golf balls. I got outside briefly in the back yard toward the early evening, but by then it was kind of cold, so I didn't stay out long.

    This evening after we all ate dinner separately the three of us sat around the living room and ate popcorn and just chatted. Sometimes we sit there and watch TV, but it was nice not having anything on and just talking about stuff.

    I felt good about things today and I'm hopeful that tomorrow I can enjoy the same level of enthusiasm I had today, and get more done.
