Happy New Year!

I rang in 2017 listening to a R2R of Big Big Train... a mixtape I compiled last week

And agreed, it is good seeing 2016 in my rear view mirror.....

With lots of celebrities and musicians passing this year notwithstanding, I on a personal note didn't find 2016 bad, though I DID make good on one BIG goal, bought a little house so there is that and built a phono preamp from a kit earlier in the year so minus the minor setbacks this fall (financial, election wise, and a forced job change, though it worked in my favor), this year was overall quite good for me.

That all said, I hope this year to build on last year and spent my final day doing errands, and seeing snow flurries and came home with new headlight bulbs, 2 bulbs for my dash and a new ladder with Christmas money and will spend today picking up and putting down some Polyurethane on a hanging shelves that my late father built in the late 60's so my late mother could have a place near the kitchen for cookbooks etc and was given to me in 2000-01 and I've been enjoying it since, but it was never poly'd, just stained and I want it to be easier to clean as it'll go in my kitchen.

In a few is go get the black eye peas on to cook in the crock-pot for dinner later today and while I ate homemade waffles and 2 fried eggs for breakfast, spun Rubber Soul on vinyl while I ate as I looked out at the snow that fell last night (about an inch or so) and got photos of the house in the snow before the sun came out and began to melt it.

One task is redo the Beatles Tapes project by reburning the test CD's with the 2 sec pregap and hope Dr Robert plays fine as the test CD I made a week or so ago now causes the laser to skip ahead on that track for some reason, and it didn't used to do so, and I can't see anything that is causing it.

Eventually, I hope to commit this to cassette (90 minute tapes) to enjoy and have a file copy for the car.

So I hope 2017 turns out to be a good year for y'all.
