    **Back On Topic**
    My little group & I play at nursing homes, churches, etc & do it for free. If they offer us money we donate it back. BUT with the gas prices we have to be selective where we play. Everyone is scattered with no central location & we are doing it less & less. I feel awful about it but not everyone who plays can afford gas for work & then other activities. I miss it & miss seeing the ppl in the nursing homes enjoying some music that isn't "piped in". I am hoping things will settle down and "even out" soon.

    Polaroid quit making their self developing film. the traditional 35mm film is still going strong (and APS is on it's way out)

    I've got one, thanks. Jealous? It's right out my front door & if it wasn't for the bushes taking over everything ppl would trip on it all the time.
    Sell it to you. You pay shipping though.

    Nah-keep it. In another 100 years you probably can get enough money out of it to make bail.

    ** covering your back

    Tell me about it. I knew what a cabbage patch doll was, I have a GF who collects them (from garage sales mostly) but I had to call my brother to find out what 8 track tapes were. He said that I didn't want any of those either. (Now he thinks I have lost my mind)
    dafoxs is going to have to come up with something snazzy for me to get rid of my fav pet rock.
