Hey Pal ,thanks for reachin out.Yes work is takin a toll and a bit of a creative lull,A bit of vacation.Plus the extra work has been hurtin the wrist a bit.so a lot of everything.Been recordin a bit ,but nuttin earthshaking.You know  sometimes you just need a break thru song to get those juices flowin.Took some killer coast vid,maybe I'll put that together with somethin.Lot of work and come home and nap kinda days.. It usually calms down in August. Preciate ya ,brother .Love Peace and Chicken Grease .I'll be back on soon.

I do like that lantern oil can guitar.  Likely a good idea to wait and decide on the electrics.  I have a fiddle started.  I think if I can get some design features done well, I will be able to play better.  Too hot to work on it today.  Around 35C.

Thanks Andries, glad you like the logo.  :-)
Shipping cost to the Netherlands is probably outrageous but if you want to order a shirt you can get them here:

Hi Andries, You're welcome.  I got your messages. You may be right - a bit of turbulence around the site perhaps?
