hey Fernando,

Good luck with the politics!

Things are a bit quiet here these days, after a few system crashes I think alot of the action has gone to facebook and other guitar forums.

Personally things are quite ok with me. I keep having accidents(!) but actually life goes well.

Fernando! Good to hear from you. :smiley:

Yeah, what gwEm says... It's a lot quieter than the old days on here, but I'm watching a little bit most days, and occasionally post something.

Blame it all on Philly (I think he still lurks too) - when he stopped posting every 5 minutes or so, we all went a bit quiet!  :grin:

I have a feeling that a lot of the old posters are still watching (like I am) - but can't get the energy up to say anything like we used to.

There's quite a few new names since you were last here. They post some really good stuff - I think us oldies just sit back and watch them getting on with it!  :cool:

Hi Fernando, welcome back.  I think that we're all just getting tired of answering the same questions  :tongue:

Hey Fernando- good to hear from you. I think Andy is spot on and many of us are still around but FB does seem to be the primary mover. Currently I am busy playing, writing and looking after Mrs 38th who unfortunately suffered  a  stroke recently but she is on the mend.
Still loving my BKP's and using them constantly.

Oh geesh. It might not mean much to her, but I think I speak on behalf of all of us here in wishing her a speedy recovery. We may only have heard about her through your, usually buying related, antics, but through that we have still come to like her a lot. All the best!

Thanks she will be touched. She was always aware of my antics but , bless her, never judgemental. She is a bit philosophical nowadays after the stroke and keeps saying , if you want it, get it, life is too short etc. Things will never be the same and I mean that in a good way- we are both a lot wiser.

Hey Fernando. Much like you I have been away for ages as I got all the pups I needed and sifted a bit too.
Sorry to hear about Mrs 38th. I hope she's getting better.

I could do with some Les Paul pup recommendations if you fancy reliving the end old times hehe. Going to put a post in the relevant thread.

Hey guys thanks- she is making good progress-the brain does try to find new pathways and she is walking , albeit not too far and her arm and hand are improving though still much weaker than before. We are both optimists and work hard to assist in the recovery. Whether she'll get back to normal remains to be seen but that is the plan. I am a bit of an expert on her kind of stroke now.


Thanks for the good wishes- I can tell you that at such times, people saying nice things really do help more than I can say.

In times like these information for a change makes me hopeful. Having heard and read about the power of the brain to reform is always great, but once you hear about a case you really do care about it comes home to you. I was always amazed by the liver for its ability to regrow till I learned about the brain. Incredible what it can do. Rightfully beyond what science can understand.

I was playing in the name of a woman I never knew, yet hope to someday, and it was the blues. Now she is improving as I hoped and I recall all I have learned over the years about this kind of thing...and I do stop playing the blues and just go to a major scale & more slide playing.

It is weird to me that I am relieved about this. But it feels good. Again, all the best. From by blues you have moved on to my happy songs. Maybe next stop is power-metal?^^

I still check up on here most days when I've got a few minutes! I never seem to play guitar much any more, not that I don't want to, it's just finding the time to balance between my bikes/gym/house/gf/social life! I've been jamming with an awesome bassist, drummer and singer when I get time though so there's still hope I can get a little band going finally haha.

Best wishes to Mrs 38th as well!
