Hi Bob. Yeah I remember having a LP with racing car exhaust noise plus a couple with sound effects like fighter jets and machine guns and various bombs going off. One ended with a nuclear bomb explosion. Just the thing to wake up the neighbors!
It's snowing here this afternoon. Supposed to warm up some later on in the week.
I'm actually thinking of skipping the motorcycle and this time next year buying a new car. Really don't want to buy used so have to save my pennies.
Hi Gary: Great sound.
It reminds me of when I was about 17, many years ago now, I bought a 33 1/3 record, do you remember those?, of beautiful racing sports car exhaust noise. It must have been, with the records both sides, about 2 hours of blissful listening. I only bought one record and I have not heard of such a record since - I wonder why?
Have you bought your motorcycle yet as the snow is gone?
Hi Bob. Oh yes people die at Isle of Man TT. Formula 1 used to run there years ago but it was too dangerous so they stopped. The motorcycle races there are not part of the FIM (motorcycle grand prix) series as they decided some years ago not to go there. The racers now are not professional although they are highly skilled.
Pretty much every year at least one rider dies in the TT. I recall reading about one year I think back in the fifties where nine riders were killed. Part of the problem is the size of the island as one part can be in bright sunshine and another part can be in pouring rain.
There is one rider Guy Martin who has won the TT several times. His day job is truck mechanic although he seems to be trying to profit from his reputation by getting into merchandising. I'd love to see him get into F1 like John Surtees did when he gave up motorcycle racing.
Hi Gary: Awesome. So fast, extremely close together, very narrow road with no escape routes. It is scary even watching the race. Does anyone crash and die in the race?? Bob Stuart
also bob was just trying to save you money, next year it will cost you to get windows 10 7 will not be supported
Bob half the fun is learning, and if you get it set up it would be easy . lol I am 74 learning all the time
Thanks for the feedback on my Windows 7. I spoke to my 'computer fixer' this morning and he said my Windows 7 is about 3 years old and that with Windows 10 the picture is totally different and that I should stay with my Windows 7, mainly because I do not use my computer very much and do not need the change in screen layout.
My computer skill level is so low, that even if I had a picture of me I would not have a clue on how to put it on this web page.
