Sold: Marshall AVT 275 2×12 Combo Guitar Amplifier

I recently purchased a Vox Custom Classic AC15CC1 Guitar Amp so the Marshall Guitar Amp I’ve been using for the last several years has to go. Because I’m running POD XT Live effects, I no longer need the four channels as well as all the effects that the Marshall amplifier offers. So she’s up for sale.

If you are looking for a 150 watt Marshall Combo amp, this is your chance to get one at about two-thirds of what you’d pay for it brand new.

Magnificent Cover of U2′s “Magnificent”

I just love the song “Magnificent” of U2’s new album, No Line on the Horizon. That is why I was thrilled to come across this very well done cover of the song done in “acoustic style.” It is really phenominal that the guitarist can play and sing the song at the same time.

It appears from the URL that is included in video that the trio is a band from Brazil called “Lunares.”

World’s Largest Model Train Display – Miniatur Wunderland

Words really cannot describe the world’s largest model train display – Miniatur Wunderland, located in Hamburg Germany. Although the exhibit features over 800 trains pulling over 10,000 railway cars, which is impressive in and of itself, Miniatur Wunderland is much more then a model train display. It is in fact a virtual world in and of itself representing scenes throughout the world.

A Week of U2 on David Letterman Show

I like the Letterman show and watch it from time to time, especially if there is a guest on that I want to see. I don’;t think I have ever watch the show religiously each and every night for a week. Last week was an exception because one of my favorite bands, U2, appeared on the show every night.

San Francisco / Bay Area in Two Days

Irma and myself have made it an annual event to visit San Francisco and the Bay Area annually in conjunction with Search Marketing Expo and Search Engine Strategies conferences that are held in the San Jose area.

Typically we take 3-4 days after the conference and head up the 101 to San Francisco as well as wine Napa and/or Sonoma Counties. Most recently, we decided to hit do the “vacation” portion of our trip first and limited it to just two days.
