That sounds familiar. It's like that on a lot of forums. That's why I came here. This might not be the busiest place, but at least everyone man's up and shows respect. I read here more then I post though.

Well I hope you don't hesitate to speak your "training" mind here.

And to your point Thumpinos...I won't let the forum deteriorate like that. I could easily let the circus roll into town, and start pimping supplements like every other lifting site on the web. Won't do it.

...sorry to derail your thread Big V, but it's always good to say that I'd rather die among men then live with the boys.

^^^ Derail this thread all you want. It makes me look popular.

I shouldn't have said what I did about that other forum. I did leave a couple of friends behind. I regret that, but the place was borderline pornographic (naked chics in avatars, naked member thread, etc.), that and if you didn't follow the leader's exercise/diet regimine to the minute detail, you were pretty much an outsider. I didn't fit in there. I fit better here.

Well, I was going to lift tonight, but Mrs. valsalva has come down with the sniffles (much worse actually, although the Dr. doesn't think its swine flu). Someone hadsta mind the yunggins and finish the laundry, and wash dem dishes. Maybe tomorrow, unless I rake the leaves. The curses of homeownership.

Get well Mrs V. BTW, check out Willie Waldman yet? He might be old news to you. And I try not to get too pornographic around here...just enough skin for pre-workout test boosting.

I looked him up after you first mentioned him. That's as far as I have gotten, to be honest. I haven't knowingly heard him or of him before you brought him up, and it doesn't look like he hangs with many cats I know either. I promise you though, that I will make a search on Pandora and try to listen to what he's doing.

Ah Steve, the images you post are...how shall we say it...? Tit-alating?

Doggone it! Seems as though I caught Mrs. valsalva's cold or whatever. I'm gonna knock off for a few days until I recuperate. The band has a show this weekend, and I've got to be healthy. I have about three things that I need to do at work tomorrow, then I'm going to leave.

Hopefully it won't hit me as hard as it hit my wife. I've been hitting the Vitamin-C/Zinc/glutamine pretty hard all along, so we'll see.

I just took a NyQuil/ZMA cocktail. This should be good.

Get well. What's the busiest time of the year for you guys? Or is it pretty steady work?

Thanks. I stayed home from work today. The first sick day I've taken for myself in about a year and a half. Hopefully the worst is over.

As far as band business goes, 2009 was a horrific year. We were very slow. Face it, the economy isn't condusive to booking a 10 piece band. Our bread and butter is corporate gigs with bar dates scattered here and there just to stay fresh. But since last fall, the corporate dates have all but vanished. We even had one cancellation, and this was after we renegotiated a price. We're seeing now though, a pick up in business. December actually is pretty busy with just parties. There is a bar date this weekend and again around Thanksgiving. We'll pick back up. Hopefully a sign of better economic times for all.

Short answer for you though, our peak times are November - January (company parties) and the summer months (county fairs and town celebrations). We'll get four to five shows in each of July and December. March, April, and May, not so good. In the fall, mostly bar dates (1 or 2 a month) because the college students come back to town. A typical year will see 20 - 25 shows. I think in 2006 we did 31. 2009 less than 20.

You guys have a website, or any mp3s/CDs? Wouldn't mind giving a listen.
