What am I getting rid of today?

Another 15 or so CDs onto Amazon to sell, mostly old blues albums and some Alan Lomax recordings from the Bahamas 1935, England 1940s, Sarah Vaughan box set, gospel CDs, Sonny Boy Williamson, Robert Nighthawk...

Also tossing away another half dozen VHS tapes: Spider Baby, Communion (It was Christmas?!), Fishing with John, Traffic...

Last weekend I ditched about 3 or 4 years' worth of Harper's Magazine. Great stuff. Now at the recycling plant hopefully. Part of this is preparing to be able to move. If I"m faced with 10 or 20% less "stuff" when we decide to move away from here, then that will be a good thing. It's very hard to get rid of this stuff though. I no longer bring home CDs or music, but I do still bring home books. I need to get rid of more clothes, more CDs, more books and and more tapes/LPs/movies/stuff I've not looked at in 5 years or more.

Meet the Gammonmaster II

With this futuristic, electronic brain capable of calculating dozens of moves per minute, the Soviets won't stand a chance against us at the upcoming Backgammon season in Monte Carlo.
