    Oh!! I just enjoy them and I'm not down anymore, but here are some anyway, just in case:

    -Faith (reading memorable meaningful passages)
    -Running, Weightlifting (Not the action per se but the entire process:
    the focus, being with oneself, letting all the distractions fade away, often
    a zen-like meditative experience!! If I ignore you you now know why. :) )
    -Beautiful Ladies (note not "girls" Neo!!! :p Remember those underage
    ones in another thread!)
    -Relationships that matter -- family, friends

    Health and well being
    Good food
    The happiness I feel when I see babies and young children
    Qi Gong, Yoga and Tai Chi
    Salsa and Swing dancing
    Being at the beach on a windy and foggy day when no one is around - enjoying the stillness and the voice of the crashing waves.
    Smiling at someone and receiving a smile in return

    Other than being down because of my dancing, I usually do not let myself get there.
    However, if I do:

    A smile from my wife - or dancing with her
    A "real" hug from anyone

    If those don't snap me out of it . . .

    Playing my guitar
    Preparing a gourmet meal (I love to ccok)
    Going for a drive (truck or Harley)
    Listening to classical music (no blues, no country, no alcohol)
    Going clothes shopping

    And lastly, something I recently discovered:
    There is a travel channel on high-definition television, that shows HD-videos of outstanding, specific interest locations thoughout the world. Usually, each show centers on one country/location. The videos are breathtaking in high-definition . . . it's almost as if you were there and it was "live." Scenes taken in airplanes can almost cause "a fear of heights" sensation. This will take your mind off of anything that has you down. This world is simply a beautiful place . . . . even Canada!

    Hey Phil . . . we have a lot in common . . .

    Playing the guitar, and I hae an SG at the house right now trying it out . . . the guy only wants a "few" $$$ for it, ad I wanted to make sur eit was OK.

    I'm looking of a good basss under $1k as I seem to be playing more bass lately . . . someone told me that Schecter makes a real good bass for around $700 . . .

    And I just ordered a cheapie Casio keyboard form musician's friend to use for a drum maching, metronome, and accompanying me as I play. I can plays the keyboard a little . . .

    Same dances other than WCS and I do not Foxtrot very well

    French Roast coffee
    Snapple Mint Ice tea - can't believe you wrote that one!

    I'm the best hugger . . . I really give them

    Smiling and getting them back . . it's personal thing of mine to do everyday to a stranger . . .

    I used to be a turboprop mechanic on C-130s . . .

    I have a 69 Z-28 . . .

    I shoot lots of sunset pictures, in fact one shot, is my screen saver!

    The sound of crickets is on my sound machine beside the bed that is used to drown out extraneous noises when I cannot sleep

    The exact same music . . . add classical

    Wonder if we were separated at birth Vince!! :lol:

    A bass under 1K you say? You might want to look into a Yamaha. I had a Yamaha BB series 5-string I played in a band and LOVED it, sounded kind of like a souped-up Fender Jazz, only much easier to play. Very reasonably priced too! See

    The axe in your avatar pic, is that a Telecaster?

    That's so cool you used to service C-130's. Those are some serious engines on those things, what are they, something close to 5000 HP apiece?
  17. Vince A

    Vince A Active Member

    Wow, I almost said the same thing in my first response to you.

    I'll check them out . . . that 1k is with about 30-40 discount . . our oldest works at Guitar Showcase and gives great discounts! I also plan to pickup a Carvin PB200-15 bass amp . . . I don't want to spend too much, as I only play once in a while . . .although it's very addictive!

    Yes, a '52 re-issue . . . I like the feel of Telecasters. I used to play Strats until I picked up a Tele at jam night, and loved how it felt in my older hands!

    I actually taught tech-school in Texas on the 130 and 133 . . . not sure of the HP - it's been a while - but for a large cargo plane with 4 turboprop engines . . . they can take off and land on an aircraft carrier . . . that's HP and torque . . .
