Selling my 901 Series III Speakers.

Since changing the 12 Bar Blues Bar’s sound system to JBL 4412 speakers I don’t need my 901s any more.

They will be sold as a set that includes two speakers, two speaker stands, and one equalizer. These speakers don’t sound right with out the equalizer.  Three years ago over the holidays I replaced all the foams on the drivers.  These speakers should be good to go for another fifteen or twenty years but this is no warranty.

Front view speakers, stands, and equilzer
Showing the foam around one of the 18 drivers is in good shape.

Let me know if your interested.


Sofie is getting old. She is having heart problems. It is kind of sad around here.

She is our second dog and she is a very good dog despite being a beagle. She was never sick and tried to behave.

When her time is up she will be missed by us.

Katrina Story

Yesterday I sold the Sally’s old front tires to a guy named Tim. He hauls cars as a side job. He is from Nashville TN. So I asked him if the flooding this spring affect him. They had a 1000 year flood there. He said no, but then he tells me he is originally from New Orleans and he moved his family to Nashville after Katrina.

He has a 1934 Ford Pickup that was Street Rodded. He wants to put the pickup back to original. It is nice to know that the wheels will be put to use by someone else instead of rusting in my garage. It is also nice to know that I help out a Katrina survivor in a small way.

Skipped work today to brew

Took a day off of work to brew a Pumpkin Ale for Thanksgiving.

First I got a couple of pie pumpkins to put in the mash. Cooked them Sunday to get them ready for mashing today.

Then I mashed to malted barley and prepared pumpkins to make wort.

When the conversion as complete I sparged to collect the sweet liquid that will become beer.

Boiled the wort with hops and spices then cooled and added to a fermentor.

Added the yeast and in a couple of weeks we should have Pumpkin Ale.

I did taste the gravity sample and it has a nice taste.

Looking forward to Thanksgiving.

I also love making beer.  It is a very wonderful to change malted barley into very good beer.

Next batch will be Oatmeal Stout.  Need to do something heart healthy.
