Enjoy :grin:
I am in a similar situation with my wife and step kids at a friend's party at St.Albans.

Having a heavy rock night with no complaints. :character-beavisbutthead: :guiness;
Just played some classic Uriah Heep who I will be seeing next month. Now it is Magnum who I am seeing in December.

In a couple of weeks it will be reversed with me away in Newcastle at a 60h birthday bash. Think the house will be a bit quieter. :lol:

For some reason, I read that as 'without any underpants '.

Foo fighters- Times like these. Note that we play it properly with the section in 5/4 time. I've seen bands do that bit in 4/4. A crime.

Not seen that audiolab before but then I haven't really been looking of late. Audio is the the "connoisseurs " choice. That but of their blurb made me laugh.

It looks like a neat unit but has a CD player and I already have one of them. If mine died then I might consider it but my extensively modified Naim is never going anywhere.

Streaming - I love a bit of diy as you all know but here we get into the realm of computers and that is not my bag. I could shove a dozen home made psu's up its arse I suppose.

Log shed is now full. Stove is going with two kettles sat on top. Boiler hasn't been on since March except to test it still works. Washing up and hot drinks now done with the kettles. Hot water bottles are ready to go.

These utility companies can feck right off. In fact so can this so called Government.
