    USPS Cautionary Tale

    The single largest change was cutting their OT, which upset all the employees. The USPS had been running an inordinate amount of OT to "meet or exceed" service levels. That was eliminated which caused the general slowing down and created the drama with pissed off employees. I believe I read...

    USPS Cautionary Tale

    I'm in logistics. Have been for 25 years. The parcel shipping companies have never been strained like they are now. Deliveries using anyone are delayed, and both Fedex and UPS have capped our daily truckloads from our DC. This has much more to do with the environment and "covid" nonsense...

    MIJ - Trump Card badge 20, 14, 12, with snare

    I honestly don't know. I've only seen one other listing and it was just a kick and rack tom. I have never seen a complete set with that badge.

    MIJ - Trump Card badge 20, 14, 12, with snare

    Yes the straight rail is very odd. And no - the head came off another set. I think I have a solid 20" head if that makes the deal. :) The "T" rods on the bass drum are also super cool looking.

    MIJ - Trump Card badge 20, 14, 12, with snare

    60's Made in Japan (MIJ) set with the Trump Card logo. I've only seen one other set with this badge, and it wasn't complete. Very unique roll over hoops, center lugs. In good shape, some pitting and surface rust, finish has fade and some scratches. Normal stuff for a 60 year old set. The...

    I've got a set of Beato Pro 1 bags. 14x22, 16x16, 9x13. They have some paint overspray on them thanks to my house painter - I have not tried to clean them but they may clean up as it's house paint. No rips or tears. These bags last forever. The retail price from his website is $336 for all...

    Drummers that love 26" kick drums...What is your favorite depth?

    I currently play a 40's era 14x26 WFL. I've owned a 14x26 Gretsch (70's era). I really like the way a 14" bass drum feels and plays, but I bet you could easily do the 12x26 thing and be good. I play in a rock/Americana style band and the drum sounds fantastic. I do have hole in the front...

    If those where standard sized bass drums I'd buy it. Holy cow I bet those toms sound amazing.

    Yamaha RC kit - Piano Black or Natural Wood?

    Piano Black. It's not really a discussion (unless of course you included white lacquer)

    OT actors in movies that could never be played by anyone else

    I read all the books, in order. Craig comes closest to the actual emotional, addicted, and violent mess that James Bond really is in the books. He was not a "good guy" and not "cheeky" like Moore played him.
