  1. Albany Roll Call - 11/11/17

    I'm sure it will be fine in the end....might get the best seats in the house...It's just something to worry a bit about now...I'll be getting into Albany Hilton hotel Friday evening in time to have supper with what ever friends are in town...assuming the train isn't running too late. Peace and Love, doc
  2. Albany Roll Call - 11/11/17

    I always print tickets at home when I can. When I did the Mission ticket to print at home it gave me a confirmation email and a link or download to print tickets. I followed that link and it printed a page that said "here are your tickets" but it does not have any seats on the tickets. The tickets that printed (for me and my older brother) look like general admission tickets. GA would be fine with me but I don't think this show is a general admission. It appears to be assigned seats. Peace and Love, Doc
  3. Albany Roll Call - 11/11/17

    Thanks for the update, Hardpan. MissionTix never answered my email question about tickets. The link for "venue tickets" to TicketMaster now says "Provide your mobile number and we will text you when tickets become available.". Previously TicketMaster was selling tickets by the actual seat. Peace and Love, Doc

    a PAIR of GOOD BROTHERS that walked with me across Ashville town about two in the morning just to be sure I made it back to the hotel safely. Peace and Love, Doc
  5. A Little Help?

    But the evil ones tend to use forms of violence to force their power over the peaceful.
  6. A Little Help?

    That is one of the things that prevents many of the improvements we need. Another is the large amounts of money that can be spent (or donated) to influence our law makers. Before I retired I was able to have discussions with the labor operators at our plant. Almost all of them had ideas about gun ownership very opposite from my thoughts but we could talk about it. Most of them were hunters of deer and other animals that they killed almost solely for sport. They had many more guns than was necessary for hunting. One of them had over fifty significant guns at home and he never hunted. I asked him why he had so many. I expected him to say that he just collected guns but he had a different explanation. He said that if people like him did not have guns that the government would take over our lives as a total dictatorship. He really believed that that he was ready to do battle with the government. This man seemed more emotionally stable than several others but this week I've realised that he probably had more fire power than the shooter in Las Vegas. Sometimes it is scary to learn what exists outside our own personal environment.

  14. Bizarro thread: Dead song you do not really like

    Interesting that noone has mentioned " Space > Drumz " but maybe that does not qualify as a song.
  15. Bizarro thread: Dead song you do not really like

    "...There is a dance going round like an awful diseaseHully, hully gullyWiggle your shoulders, and ... your knees Mama hully gully, papa hully gully..." Thank goodness "Hully Gully" was only played a couple times.
