Starting with 90 is good - it stops you having to play the same one or two OVER and OVER again

Best of luck with your searching

My grandfather, Larry Owen, played reeds, arranged and was later business manager for Guy Lombardo. He was one of the original Royal Canadians. Family lore also has him tutoring a young Artie Shaw on clarinet.

I am a newbie here, so be gentle...

I am 45, starting collecting records when I was 12 years old. Have some 60 unplayed Mint records ... and around 600+ in total.

I am female and one of only a handful of women In NZ who drive Heavy Machinery ... mostly diggers and the likes.

I Love v8's and have two, one a GM (or as we know it here a Holden) and a classic 71 Ford Fairlane

No children, but LOVE animals ....

My partner is a tunneler ...

We live in the beautiful south pacific country called New Zealand, although I am from Dutch descent and 1st generation kiwi.

Well thats about it really .... Have a lovely day all. Glad to be a part of such a nice bunch of people. Kia-ora!

Welcome to the Guild, 71v8Ford.
What kind of music to you listen to/collect? What are some of the titltes of those minty unplayeds?
Anyway -- stay awhile and as Mac says: Post often.
It's always nice to have a little extra femine sensibility around this joint.
Kia-ora to you, too (whatever that means).

It's been a while since I've posted here.

hhhmmmm trivia....

- I have a card that lets me walk the subway tracks (escorted of course) in Toronto. I have a license to operate window washing equipment.
- I have a healthy fear of heights (see #1)
- I have a rather large piece of fencing from the Royal York Hotel in my back yard
- I have had 9 teeth pulled in my adult life...and I still have a full smile
- Broken 3 bones, at separate times, none of which needed a cast. (one toe, another bone in my foot and an ankle)
- I once played half a soccer match with a broken ankle (I didn't know it at the time, I thought it was sprained, and we were short players)
- I recently spent 2 weeks in South Africa and Lesotho building a school for children orphaned by AIDS.
- In addition to records I also have a hockey card collection and a coin collection
- I have been to 10 baseball parks, 4 are no longer in use (St.L, Pitt, Tor & Montreal) the rest are Chi x 2, Bos, Tor (Skydome), Det, Cleveland

That's all the odd stuff I can think of now.

LOL ....No I don't speak with an Dutch kiwi accent, just a kiwi one. Parents came here as immigrants after WWII.

Kiaora is Maori for Hello. Usually said at the end of a speech. Maori's are the natives of this land.

My record collection is varied and the unplayed even more so ...the likes include Rolling Stones x 11, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, The Clash, etc ... to name a few.

Hopefully in the near future I will be listed some of these records ...

You all have a wonderful day won't you. Very Happy

What a crazy and insightful thread!

I need to get up and do more stuff with my life, so that I can fill out this resume.

Let's see,
I've collected vinyl for over 25 years and have just shy of 15,000 lps.
I love to travel and have been to 32 countries. (and 49 US states)
I grew up in Chicago and now live in the Pacific Northwest.
Was a professional photographer and have approx. 200,000 slides.

Those are the general highlights off the top of my head.
