Thanks W.C. Went to your website, I'm adding Joshua Tree and Smoking to my upcoming solo shows, I'll tell my extremely small group of fans to check you out. Now dig this: I also play a jumbo, I've spent many nights under the stars in Joshua Tree and I love Corona. I don't have the shirt but apparently we feel the same way about Monsanto. If you also play a Sho-Bud Pro II that will be a mind warper! Stay Strong brother if you are ever in western New York let me Know, we will get down!
For Mr Prior. So if you own anything made of wood or sit on it you can't try to do something to preserve the future of the planet?

Respectfully, can you clarify this?

Now, I don't mean like my sister-in-law who finally, exhasperatedly, said 'Do you believe in this chair?'
I mean, I don't have to, I'm sitting on it, and it's sturdy.

Certainly, I can try to do something about the planet, but I'm unclear what you're suggesting that you do--not that it's any of my business. (ntiaomb, I guess)

As Craig and I discussed in the dust, these things that are driven by market seem to rule regardless of the logic.
Save wood; price it out of the market.

Morning,
Not sure how to properly refer to a quote but here it is:

it appears to me that some legislators somewhere , sitting around in expensive WOOD Chairs on a beautiful very expensive WOOD desk came up with some regulations to curtail the use of wood.

So if we apply a bit of critical thinking and alter the premise to see if it's logical we could get this:


it appears to me that some legislators somewhere , sitting around ( breathing air) on a beautiful ( clean air day)came up with some regulations to ( preserve clean air).

Or this: Since people have used wood in the past,or own things made of wood they should not be allowed to try to preserve wood even after they become aware some wood is in danger and it will affect the entire planet eventually.

Or this: I drove a pinto to work every day for 7 years until one day it blew up and killed my wife,but since I used one for 7 years I can't do anything to rectify this problem without being hypocritical.

Who knew that trees assist in making air? Who knew that ecosystems are very complicated? Who knew that corporations and people will kill or fire people to make money?

If you want a good perspective on this subject of limited valuable wood for guitars, a book about a common fish has many answers. Read "Cod" by Mark Kurlansky.
