|Fisher 500B and Phillips 312|
The Fisher 500B looks better with two now knob 'brights' from Tube Audio Design (new ones on far left) Record on the Turntable is Dire Straits "Dire Straits" 1978. The turntable is from about then and the 500B is from about 1962 and is a MPX receiver (Stereo) with about 30 wpc. The sound from the tubes is very nice.

|New Years Day in Centreville|
Stayed home today and went on a few dog walks. This scene is about a 10 min walk from the house and is a route often taken on nice days. It was over 50 today and was the warmest day in about a month. The ground was nice and squishy to walk on for a change and most all the snow melted. We made a fancy breakfast for each other and watched the Tournament of Roses Parade, which always reminds me of my late friend Paul Schou KE6ET who among many other activities worked as a communications volunteer for the parade and received commendations for his service. We watched the FL State football game, we rooted for Penn St because our nephew is there working on MS in mechanical engineering. Later on I worked on some Christmas pix for the family and enjoyed the holiday.
