      Hello All I am afraid all the decent jokes I know would not be suitable to post here
      but I am a great music fan Eric Clapton ,dire straits ,pink floyd ,springsteen ,stones
      And I still prefer the hard copy,
      We lost our Hmv store due to high rents which was a great shame but if you search the
      second user sites you can pick up some real gems if your lucky
      So if your a music buff give it whirl .........
      !!!!!!
      Just a Thought ........Stay Safe

      That's alright Wizard200. There are plenty of clean jokes out there so if you do think of some .

      Whether it's HMV, Woolies, Virgin or one of the many other music shop chains who have sadly moved on, things have changed. All these people (some here too) who only want to go for digital downloads, will one day regret it. Lose a password? Get hacked? Provider pulls the plug? You name it, it'll happen.

      At least with an LP or CD, you were responsible for ensuring that it remained scratch-free and you could play it over again.

      Some more music...

      Hello Scubbie , Yes it is very sad that all of these stores have past in to history & it's
      not the same with a digital copy , Same with hardback books Maybe it's a physical thing although SWMBO states that I have far to many of both ,
      I do download a lot of podcasts & audio books from the BBC & The Library they are great
      BBC World Service, radio 4 & 5 live have a terrific selection documentaries, drama ,factual ,
      nature, Would recommend both sources during this Lockdown you can only suffer so much
      Daytime Television ' YUCK ..........
      !!!!!!
      Music : How about some of the Girls Whitney ,Tina, Karen Carpenter, Gladys Knight, Heather Small
      All great artist's & that's only a few ............
      !!!!

      Just a Thought Stay Well Happy Easter
      Chocolate & Beer

      Re: Recommended viewing (dark sense of humour)

      There may be advantages to having digital copies, such as the physical space that LPs take up and warped records or discs and this is a similar thing for books when compared to their respective digital versions. However, a book can be physically passed to someone else for them to read at their leisure. An LP or CD album can be really nice to play.

      Of course, I copied virtually all my own CDs onto my Laptop years ago. I still have the CDs. This has the advantage that I can play the tracks in any combination I like and I've also copied many of them onto my mobile phone too.

      Streaming them to my phone would eat up my monthly data allowance. It would also mean that I must be in the range of a signal at all times. Let me just point out that the signal strength at several dive sites is either very poor or non-existent. There aren't any aerials two or three miles out to sea either. It's enough fun attempting to stream a live FB video from the club's RIB, let along listen to the music whilst looking after the boat whilst everyone is in the water.

      N.B. In truth and for the record, I don't listen to any music whilst handling the boat. There is a little too much going on and the engine makes a little noise. It's unsafe to wear headphones or earplugs. You're constantly listening and watching for other boats or ships and for the noise of any divers who may have surfaced too soon.

      At the moment I'm sharing my home with a friend. She's gotten into True Blood this week and one Season 3 already. There is enough content out there these days for you to pick and choose what you watch quite easily with Sky or NowTV. Add to that Amazon Prime, Netflix and Youtube and there is never enough time in the day.

      So with that, a little more music...







      In light that the Olympics should have been this year...


      I've chosen a specific part of the London opening ceremony here which may be a little poignant just now...

      Hello scubbie , I understand about the need to copy all your CD collection I have copied most of mine
      Onto my laptop but I still like hard copy's L.P. & CD versions but I am in need of a new record deck
      This I am afraid is a distant dream the cost of a Technics deck is around 1k without the stylus
      And I am sure SWMBO would not be impressed ........

      Still I can always dream

      Music Carly Simon , Stevie Nicks , Diana Ross , try the Notting Hillbillies they only made one album,
      Born Jovi , Dana Wnner but you can't seem to buy Her English album
      Shame .....​ !!!

      Just a Thought ........
      !!!!! Stay Well
