Hi Bernie, hmm, a bit tenuous at best ...

A link is a link. Some of the fun in this game is the spontaneous link that forms in your mind upon seeing a word. Explaining the link takes the fun out of it.

I've often wondered what fun a psychotherapist could have trying to analyze the players here based on these "Word Link" threads.....

Then they stamp the vomit in
until it is a liquid, usually stamping in
a few germs for good measure.
Then when it's good and runny
they suck it all back again, probably
dropping some excrement at the
same time.
And then, when they've finished
eating, it's your turn.

Might answer the question about the fertility god.

IIRC the original game said hints at least every 24 hours.

virgin links nicely to snow, which obviously goes to skiing, which leads to ice, to fishing, and so to sardines - works well in my mind - we obviously think along the same lines....

I have a genuine Fender Stratocaster, Serial E736805. It was made in Japan in the 1980's and the experts believe that the Japanese versions have a better tone than the USA ones. Sadly since my numerous hand operations I cannot play it any more :-((( But it is a treasured possession.

Nice guitar, Chris:) I also have a Fender but it's no Stratocaster. It's from the Squier series.

Hi soft, nice guitar :-) 12 strings are an absolute PITA to tune!

Never played a twelve string before. Is it hard?

it plays pretty much like a 6 string.. I would not recommend for a lead guitar.. very VERY difficult to bend notes and have it sound good. Some picking patters can sound really nice though.

pretty much you play/hit 2 strings at a time. I like the sound.

And Chris is right, it is a PITA to tune, especially with 1968 stock tuning gear.

They made them for 3 years total. That one is a 1968. Rickenbacher won that competition and Gibson pretty much gave up on them.

That stock tuning gear was a pain even on a six string, so I can imagine what it was like with twelve....
