The CD/record section is definitely not a jazz goldmine. And most of the classical music is what you might think you would find. The only rare record I've found so far is the EMI Jacqueline Du Pre Elgar Cello Concerto in excellent condition. I was going to sell it, but then I listened to it.

Is the Elgar on EMI worth something? I recent;y picked it up on the Angel/EMI imprint. Maybe it's a Canada-only release. It even had press quotes on the cover and the back, so it is a very early release. It's marvellous.

My small claim to fame: I worked for a woman who was her private nurse after she got sick. She met Daniel Barenboim and that whole crowd.

Found these at Marshalls.  The messenger bag is the same one that Chet (I think) found a while back.  I couldn't force myself to pull the trigger since I recently got my 256.  I'll check back in later.  Hopefully, it'll stay around for a price reduction or two.

Messenger Bags



That was me - what were they charging? Maybe it's just the picture, but that looks smaller than the one I found.

I was told by Dave from http://www.classicalvinyl.com/ that the record is worth 60 pounds in Near mint condition. I'm pretty sure I have at least that.

 

Further deets on the record:

 

EMI ASD 655. The has a simple red EMI marking in the left corner. On the back of the sleeve it says:

L.L. 6511 Printed and made by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. Patents Pending ALP 21606 ASD 655

The label says His Masters Voice in big white letters in a half circle, but where earlier versions have the dog picture on the inside of the half circle, mine has a black half circle and a red block with with EMI letters. It is tagged 2YEA 1144.

Pretty nice Barbour quilted vest on ebay with a few hours left, still at a great price. Item number: 321094394229 I'd pick it up, but I need to cut back on my purchases; perhaps one of you guys can snag it on the cheap.

I'm going to jump in on this one....as one who has both been in a few races as well as one who commuted daily to work on a bike.

You need to get a bike that fits how you will be realistically riding your bike. Don't buy a bike because you think a certain style will automatically make you a matching rider or that you picture yourself as fitting the profile of a certain type of rider, or even what you think others will think of you because you chose a certain style. I would highly recommend a well rounded hybrid bike. You may think that your location is flat, but you will soon realize that smalls hills that you rolled over without thought in a car will be more noticeable on a bike. You will also find a few gears will make the overall ride more enjoyable. The slightly wider tires of a hybrid bike will roll better over rough roads, and the more upright riding position will be more comfortable on your back. Having good disc brakes will be good to ensure you stop quickly even in wet conditions, you also will find that motorists will be less than accommodating to cyclists. After a few years when you find that your riding is heading in a certain direction, then you will be ready to spend more money on a more defined bike type. Get something easy to ride and more rounded now.

Be sure to budget for a quality bike lock and a helmet. I would recommend a helmet higher than any other aspect related to cycling. When cycling, it's just a matter of time before you go down...you don't want to end up dead or mentally damaged because you didn't want to mess your hair or look uncool.

And lights if you plan to ride at night. Don't skimp on these items! I can't tell you how many $1k+ bikes I see with cheap pharmacy cable locks.
