    Well, yes, that kinda defines the U.S.: a nation of immigrants, the melting pot, all that. I've met many good Americans whose great grandfather came on "the boat" as they say. Nothing wrong with that.

    Your brain washing is starting to work. I am the highest bidder on a Kanstul 1525 Flugel. I still don't know why I bid and hope I don't win it really. Especially considering the import duties involved.:dontknow:

    You have potential for genius my kind sir. May you win the bid, and become among flugel gifted. You will not be disappointed should you win.

    Andy, I'm only the highest bidder and hope I'm outbid. I bid on a whim and have seen that Packers have an Eclipse flugel in the shop, as we all know, even Gary, a far superior instrument. :cool:.

    When the auction ends I might go down to Packers to take a look.

    I am NOT excited about the anniversary of the SSB and, in fact, don't care much for it at all. I am a patriot (though not fond of certain legislation with that word in it), a Vietnam Vet and proud of it. The SSB is just not good music, if you ask me. I'd lobby for America The Beautiful any day.
    What brings me to tears is to see those who served this country and who honor its flag mistreated, disrespected, and not given the care they deserve by the VA and our government.
