Hi guys,  I sit here tonight (U.K.), a round tin CBG behind me that the lacquer is not drying on the neck quickly because of the cold weather. I sprayed it outside and bought in indoors, but...... I cannot go in the workshop until the weather gets a tad warmer, even though I have a stack of guitar projects under the bench. I went out last night to an open mic evening, and got humiliated by my inadequate Arthritic digits halfway through a tune. After that little embarrassment, I plumb forgot the lyrics to finish. My back ached this morning as well, due to having to stand for hours that night....!!!!   Currently, I hate everything, it is all the damned fault of the government of course, it is a conspiracy against my welfare I guess. No matter what you seem to vote for, the bloody government always gets in every time.....!!!!!  Oh yeah, my voice went as well....!!!!

Rant over for now, thanks....

Someone post me a gun. I need protection from the people here that are not supposed to have guns. 

Guys, it's easy to become president. All you need is your dad to lend you a couple of million bucks for your 18th birthday so you can start buying hotels. After a couple of decades you can easily afford it.

Trump. It sounds like an accident in the pants. I don't want to trump. Too late, I've trumped.

The UK is just as bad, we voted to leave the free trade market in the EU. Now the only choice we have is to pay them the same amount of money as membership to trade, but we don't have any say what the EU does with that money and none of it will be used to help businesses in the UK to keep stabilised with the people they are trading with. This is the simple result of racism, bigots and political coup. 

Can you guys watch BBC news in America? We are watching it just to play 'spot thepropaganda'. It's actually quite difficult because of the layers of lies.

Duck, I'm in favor of California, Chicago, and New York seceding. After the dingleberries run it into the ground, we can reaquire the real estate for pennies and try to reestablish some sanity there!

It just keeps getting stupider and stupider. I agree with you Wayfinder, this political party thing just seems to be a means to guarantee an argument.

It never ceases to amaze me how people will scream that we need "term limits" when they keep voting for the same idiots, term after term. 

We already have term limits, all you have to do is elect someone else.

Then we have my home state of California where they keep screaming that we need more federal funding of their stupid projects like the "Bullet train" and then say that we should secede from the nation and become a "sovereign nation" on our own.  Hell, these fools can't even run the state properly and they want to become independent?

Is it just me, or did all of the political BS (past and continuing) take all of the fun out of being a curmudgeon.  With so much uncivil action going on it hurts the goals of true curmudgeonness.

All the damn political correctness has screwed up my lifestyle.

Sorry, Wayfinder.  I'm a hard core meat eater, but if all the meat was politicians I would become a vegetarian.

Nothing like the smell of Oak, Spruce and Cedar in the morning.

For sure, just try to ignore those folks to the extent possible, otherwise they just raise your blood pressure. Fortunately making sawdust in the shop seems to help lower it.

Yup, rules can be a problem, but ya sure don't want to be caught poaching a politician.
