Thanks Merky.

A friend of mine had some H.H. Scott I believe it was back in the seventies. Also a few pieces of classic Harmon Kardon tube amps and pre amps.

My first real turntable was a Gerrard 40B, an entry level Gerrard with a Stanton 681EEE cartridge.

Those look great Dan, both the squash and the Dynaco's.

I was lucky lately to be able to rescue my dad's Scott Lab Series tuner, power amp, and Garrad turntable. All three components are still in very fine condition. Not sure if I will perform their revival or entrust these family treasures to a true audiophile pro service tech. My dad was the Scott and Garrad southeastern rep in the late 50's and early 60's. I plan to hook them up to a pair of JBL 4410's. The irony of all this is that after standing in front of a guitar amplifier for 50+ years, I can't hear squat.

Why are you selecting seeds? To replant next season?








Yes.

To create a cultivar that is well adapted to our growing conditions and is of the type we want. Every population has a range of genetic variability. This is the way it has been done for thousands of years.

The seeds in the photo we roasted this evening. I didn't mention that butternut is what comes in a can of most pumpkin pie mix.

A change of subject is in order!

Anyone for Butternut Squash?

We grow Waltham Butternut squash and save seeds. We select seed for large size squash, large diameter necks and good keeping quality. We will select seed from the best ten squash we have left out of the 125 we have stored on the spare room floor because we do select for keeping ability. Our total harvest from this year was about 275 squash. Right shortly we are going to be putting some on face book market place as we have too many left even after sharing with friends. Had a friend come by today....he only wanted two. There are a couple of Dynaco 120 amps in the background and a Jotul F3CB wood stove. The other photo was taken just this afternoon as I was preparing squash for baking and seeds for roasting which is in progress as I type.

We roast butternut seeds with a coating of olive oil and a little sugar.

I thought that was one hell of a gesture.


I spoke up in this thread because of the way Chip was being run down in the 'Loose Rivet' chat bar for selling the Runabout even though he had offered it to many at the price he paid for it. The irony (hypocrisy) I was pointing out is that the Vagabond was sold to someone outside of our group before most of us even knew it was up for sale. Evidently J.R. never knew of the 'pending' sale. Now of course Rob will post that there never was a 'pending sale', because liars are gonna lie. Or maybe just not remember.

The bottom line though is that the guys helping Cathy did a great job and Russ's boats went to very good people. Except for the Runabout of course, because Chip sold it.

Tomato seedlings are a-poppin'.
