Now we're getting somewhere!

Or at least, YOU are. As for me - I was belatedly struck by the basic truth that your success may have zero meaning for me.

Our random width oak flooring is heavily stained, at present with age, a deep golden hue overall.

Yours OTOH appears to be unstained, apart from a poly coating which must add a little something. Just guessing, it's a pretty new floor based on the absence of yellowing (I LOVE that reddish oak hue it so often begins with - so often lost over time, though.)

When oak isn't stained, it's a lot easier to remove acquired blemishes. The one spot in our LR sanded ages ago by a contractor (don't even remember why), has remained virtually white - won't even take a stain put down in an attempt to blend it. Just seems to soak it up, then turn that same "white" again. (How come, woodworkers?)

I am so hoping that the center column is explaining how you CANNOT get HIV...?

Amazingly in Honduras, before some of the kids came to us we found that their families wouldn't let them eat from the family dishes.. Frowner

RF, I showed this my office walking friend who is Taiwanese.

She confirmed my interpretation.

Last night I saw Chris Thile, mandolinist, playing Bach to bluegrass. No pics, sorry.

Bach on a mandolin is really lovely. Kind of lute-like. The notes are so clear. He played a sonata in G minor, and a partita in B minor. Amazing!

And then some more "normal" mando stuff. He used to play with Nickel Creek.

PS: He's declared this month to be Bachtober!

LOVE mandolin!

If you need to feed the need for more mandolin, look up Emmylou Harris "Bluebird". That one has an entire mandolin orchestra and a more glorious sound I can not imagine. ThumbsUp

Thank you; playing on Spotify right now. (We have a subscription and I love it)

The friend I play and sing with plays mando, and we have so much fun!
