You are obviously not old enough HiFi Outlaw, to remember 'bath nigh, tin bath in front of the fire' . . .  Wink

Thats because most of us Angel had plumbing and bathrooms in our homes (b) didn't live in a colliery village or a D.H. Lawrence novel (c) weren't one of the 'Four Yorkshiremen' from the Monty Python sketch.

You are sugesting I should 'know my place' Chebby??????  I'm not most of us, I'm me . . . an individual who has good memories of those formative years.  People we considerarte, helpfull and courtious . . . not like these days it seems.

HiFi Outlaw, Yep, I'm old enough to remember those bad old days.  We lived in a two up two down cottage, thunder box in the garden and wash house with a wood fired copper boiler, mangle and dolly stick. a cold tap outside the back door that my dad took through into the scullery, he fitter an electric water geezer.  It was not untill 1957 we moved into a house with all 'mod cons'??? and a back boiler in the open fire to heat water!  How life has changed . . .

My grans house was exactly that CJ and she had the gas mantle lighting too. Bloody hated staying there in the winter and having to trot over to the bog with a torch. Mind you the newspaper was of an easy size to read.

Ok ,back to reading the draft for my new book. Titled. 

I thought my nose was bleeding but its not. 

Geddit ?.

Nah. Should be called: "How I drip-dried my runny hooter"

Might be interested in looking into a Dyn once I get the new turntable. Then again, it is roughly the same cost of the ClearAudio  :shhh:

RE: Dynavector 10x5

Really pleased I tired another cart - opened my eyes a bit now and was worried I was turning into a Rega fanboy!

It has got me interested in phono stages though, however the Brio R onboard seems to doing the business at the minute!

Winter, cold  . . .  frost paterns on the inside of the beroom windows in the morning!  Happy times though, in the middle of the country.  I was brought up as a country boy, rough shooting, rabbits, phesant, partridge, dads ferets in the cages, scratching at the chicken wire keeping we awake.  32 acres of common land at my front door and farms all around, fishing pond at the bottom of the road . . . great times, kids dont know they are alive these days.

Thanks CJSF for sharing a bit of your live, and take the time.  :grin:

In those times (40, 50's) in Portugal there were people who only bath once or twice a year...
