comparison

Here you can see the difference in size between the Bolt Cyclone battery pack and the Vagabond Mini pack. The Vagabond is not heavy (compared to its predecessor) but the Bolt is very light.

Just started testing the Bolt but so far I am impressed. It’s easy to use and charges very quickly. I drained the charge that came on it and now I will see how long a full charge lasts.

More later.

I have said before how much I love album cover art and a perfect example of that are the covers of Quicksilver Messenger Service. Great music as well. I need to listen to them again.

An old favorite

I’ve bought this in every form I have found it in. This was the first iteration for me though. Must have been the art work.

Two reasons for this purchase

Two reasons I bought this 45

As I recall I bought, but it was a long time ago, this 45 because of this photo and for the B side!

The 60’s were strange even in small Midwestern towns.

This test really impressed me. The dish in the photograph has a much improved detail to it now. I need to test this on some jewelry next.

After a prolonged illness my Dell laptop recently died. It’s smaller, lighter and less expensive Lenovo is a welcome addition.
