    Speakers still sound good
After 25 years of service I have finally replaced my Bose bookshelf speakers with a new pair of speakers.  In the interests of recycling I am prepared to sell the old Boses.  They still sound good, although all of the speaker coverings have faded away in the mists of time.  As a second set of speakers they should work fine.  $50 or best offer.

    Everyone can sing wonderfully
First I've got two beginner singer classes starting in the next few weeks that have room for 2 more singers each.
The first is on -Friday night from 7 to 8/30pm, running 8 weeks, starting 2nd week of January.
The second is on -Sunday afternoons from 1 till 2/30pm, running 8 weeks, starting as above.
These are fun workshops designed for those who want to improve their singing experience.
In the singing classes,we'll do lots of singing, work on building confidence, finding problem areas; why things don't work, gaining tools to solve things, ear training and technique, and relax, sing and have fun with others who love to sing. I gear each class to the participants, so it can range from beginners to fairly advanced. There's always something that can be solved! I believe everyone can sing wonderfully; this course is designed to gather the tools and courage.

    Organ needs a home
The multi-talented Gary Bluestone has a Hammond BC (an older B3) which he's looking to
find a home for... until he has the space himself.
Worst case, he's got a place for in Newmarket, but would like it closer to home.
My guess, it's footprint is about 2.5' by 5' , and would make a dandy TV stand or a very
precarious aquarium base.
If anyone has the space, please contact Gary at 98mph@sympatico.ca

Incredible Truth of Prophecy Revealed!
"As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

Truth Stranger Than Fiction

Fiction Funnier Than Truth
Adam Felber is, alas, not a real candidate, but a comedian from LA who ran a mock presidential campaign during the recent US election.  His concession speech, which has turned into an internet phenomenon, can be found on his very funny blog site, Fanatical Apathy:
