    Today, I've got workers at my apartment doing a repair above the kitchen ceiling...apparently, there's a small leak in the feed water pipe between the 2 adjoining apartments that needs repair. The handymen are currently cordoning off a section above the kitchen cabinets and sawing a hole in the wall so as to access and dry out the water leak.

    The pipe leak proper is above the ceiling. Not sure of the details just yet, but the workers have draped plastic drop cloths over the kitchen so as to facilitate eventual cleanup. Currently have a good 2.5 x 1 foot sized hole above the cabinets now. Am seriously thinking of letting the workers do their job while spending time away from the apartment...may be a wise decision to not be here while the guys do demo and repair...

    EDIT: Pipe fitting compression joint installed, workers have left, save for letting a ladder remain and a light on in the attic so as to dry out moisture. Just spoke with the supervisor; the workers are locating some commercial dehumidifiers to wick some of the moisture from affected areas in the attic and walls.

    Here's the repair pic w/ pipe compression fitting:

    Did some recording yesterday for a song that eluded me for a while. Rhythm track - the SE Hollowbody Standard through my pedals and such and into my Budda. Noticed that I was picking up some radio station or something. Usually I wouldn't sweat this, but with a couple of holds, the interference was audible. My usual routing is into a G-System (with some stuff in the loops) into my looper into a hum eliminator into the amp. So I eliminated the looper. When I went to plug the cable into the hum eliminator, I hit the edge of the case and the radio stuff got LOUD. Interesting. Still had the interference. So I rerouted the cable and plugged into the G-System - no interference. I initially thought it was the cable between the looper and the hum eliminator, or between the G-System and the looper. For now, the looper and hum eliminator will be out of the signal path.

    FWIW - with the Budda master cranked and the preamp pretty low, the tone from the HB was, in the words of a certain French knight, "verrr nass".

    Looks awesome! I love the clean look, and that it still looks nice and clean even when the strap isn’t on the button. One of my rare good ideas. :)

    My wife is the youngest of 8 kids, and is and always was petite. She has often told the story of riding all the way to Myrtle Beach on family vacation, in the back window deck of her dads Ford LTD. That trip, 3 people in the front seat, 4 in the back seat, and she laid up in the back window! You know were we live. It was a 10 hour trip with two quick stops last fall when we went there, in a newer truck running 80 much of the way.

    You might notice the three straps that seem to be upside down. They are turned that way because of this sweet little thing:

    Being from Columbus I know that drive as well. It's a wonder she didn't fry back there.

    Oh, wow, I really did think they were identical. I guess it's a popular design language!

    Last Saturday I helped our local farmer's market become a drive-thru market.
