<quoted text>interesting that you mentioned that.

I happened upon a business today, as part of my sales job ... that bought and sold LP's ... I had a good talk with him about how they value the records.

He siad if the albums are the more common records sold in the 70's to 90's they won't fetch much ... between $3 to $8 ... this is because everybody owns them or can get the CD versions ...

If yuo cannot get them on CD you might get $10.

If it is something more uncommon, like a 60's or early 70's troggs or Pink Floyd Album, you might get $15 to $25 ...

Actually he says that the afficionados like to collect Jazz, soul, blues, and first releases of albums like Johnny cash, john Lennon, and others who havve passed away. Those will fetch $25 to $100 and up depending on how rare.

also if you have an album released in some foreign country, like Japan, with the album cover being unique to that country, then you might have something worth a bit . for example the band Cheap Trick performed in Japan and you can buy the live album as pubished here ... and that won't get yuo $10 ... but if yuo have the Japanese release you might get $50 or more....

You do need to do some research to estimate the value of your LP's
I have an original Keith Jarrett, the Japanese version, that I purchased in Japan for 50 US dollars. I have yet to price it with a dealer. However, I say the cd version for 188.00 US!
I will keep my LP.

HAHAH! We did both ... we kept the wedding down to under $6000 then spend $8000 on the trip to Europe ...

The dress was $1500 ...
These kids today! They spend the money on the wrong things.....like throwing a huge party for the relatives!

so that part referring to "equality of all races, creeds and religions" matters the least?

it's interesting to note that the more valuable records are not necessarily of the top bands ... the lesser known artists but ones with a certain following are more valuable.

On a much more serious note

and Good Morning.. everybody.

I'm between two minds about the whole JIMMY SAVILE
controversy,
I followed it as best I could,
and of course, there are very many things
I haven't a clue about on the face of it,
and all it entails,
but..

what I do find very questionable is this...

All of a sudden people seem to be coming
out of the woodwork, from all sides presenting examples
of 'his weakness' added to ... hospital staff, it has been reported, used tell the children to pretend
to be asleep, when he was due a visit, because,
it's said, they were not happy about his behaviour
with the children?????

What?

and they never did a SINGLE thing about it back then, most odd... and,
when one considers, nearly 100 folks now
[at a guess]by now have come forward
WHEN THE MAN IS DEAD, and stated their
negative experiences, at his hands,
and EVERY SINGLE ONE had an excuse,
when asked 'WHY did you not report it'

Don't get me wrong,
I haven't a clue about the man Jimmy Savile,
so I'm not sticking up for him..
hardly remember him on TV,

I wasn't there to see what went on back then..

Neither is HE here now to speak for himself..

all I'm saying is,
how is it EVERYONE concerned had a different reason
as to why they didn't report his behaviour
when the time was right> 'back then'
that in itself, is quite odd to my way of thinking.

Good Morning Grace,

It does seem you are not aware that Jimmy Savile was questioned
in a documentary as to his behaviour in various parts of the
country, he categorically denied any wrongdoing.

Last night, I am told, a Detective Inspector spoke up on the tv.,
who said he was told about J.S's 'behaviour' in the 60's and 70's
he passed it on the his superiors, but they did nothing about it.

Like yourself, I find it most odd that the nurse who was a patient
at the time, witnessed him abusing a young female patient who had
brain surgery, was very vulnerable, but the nurse/patient who was
apparently incapacitated at the time, did not make an complaints
at a later date.

It seemed everybody turned a blind eye...for material gain?

Incidentally, he wasn't alone. There have been more revelations
about others in the profession, sadly.

Good Morning Folks,

The car passed it's MOT yesterday, so that was a day well spent.

The new microwave came and I am trying to fathom it out, I will be using it instead of my convection oven, well, that was the idea, but being a convection oven, grill and microwave it will take some getting used to.

I found some fabulous recipes online, some from a French Chef...then I found this lady, and love her,
I can relate to her, lol,so I am starting with this one today.....:)

Another example of how different the laws are in our respective countries. Recently two policewomen were answering a call to what they had been led to believe, was a 'domestic' incident, both of them were lured into a trap and shot, followed by a grenade attack.
This was in my home town of Manchester, Lancashire. The 'perp' was already on the run for shooting a father and his son, and handed himself in to the police after this atrocity.

I find it all pretty fascinating and like to learn about people. We may think we had an ordinary family or childhood but when you star looking, it can get interesting.

Would be Olympians, Grammy winners, athletes....what an impressive, eclectic mix.

Thanks for this El,
I appreciate your reply,
yes i remember hearing something vaguely
about his being questioned before.

I agree, the example you gave re the woman who
witnessed a patient being abused [saw her on SKY]
NOW speaks up, I would be annoyed with her for that..
not afraid to go before the people on TV now,
but to remain silent then!!
and the people in the hosp in charge to
remain silent and 'take a chance'

Inexcusable,'I' think:

Anyway,
GREAt you got your MOT, must be a great relief -
we have to have ours done every year noe-
before it used to be ev 2 years!

Yes, the MICROWAVE is an asset, but not for everything
as we know.

Wishing you a pleasant wkend..

Lovely Autumnal day this side!

Pretty much. And I mean that in truth. It wasn't until 1920 women in the US could vote; as recently as 1960s blacks were barred from a lot both by custom and by law. Zoning laws are used to keep mosques or black churches out of town, and also homes for the elderly and homes for mentally challenged.

So no, even today the 'equality' in the constitution does not apply to all US citizens.

I mean that in truth, not sarcasm it jest. And as a women I will only point out that in recent years the republicans have in fact implemented laws in many states to stifle a woman's healthcare and family planning options -- forget controversial abortion, in some places we cannot get both control.

I find it misogynistic and not much better than what we complain about the muslims and other cultures in their treatment of women.
