 Well hello there Brian! Good of you to let me know. Thanks  for the reminder of where that link is!

 Just sent them a message about it.

Thanks for the input on octave pedals. I actually have an inexpensive one that works fine, but I wanted something simpler that could be incorporated into my CBG with just one output.

You are the stomp box effects guy! Is it possible to put a passive octave down circuit between a single pole, single coil pickup and a volume control? Is it also possible to build a separate circuit that goes an octave up too?

bu..bu..but what about poor ol' cousin Dean?  I turned up his oxygen as I read her email to him.  I honestly think I saw his eyelids flutter a bit when I mentioned all that money.

This would mean we wouldn't have to spoon-pour his grits into that feedin' tube no more.  Dean seems to like his grits with chicken gravy, but we ain't sure ... him being in that coma and such like.  And I just don't believe ol' Ms Woodrat would scam anybody like that.

For the record, I cannot believe this happened.  I am having more fun with this than you can imagine.  I actually think there might be an old timey country tune in it.  ;)

Ms Woodward.
Thank you so much for reaching out to us like this.  I can't believe this is happening.  Almost everything in your letter is true, my Father's cousin, Dr. Dean Duncan, was never married and didn't have any children, but he was only injured in that earthquake.  Dr. Dean Duncan is ALIVE.  He had been severely injured in Jawa and has been in a vegetative state since 2009.  We were notified by the US state department about the earthquake.  The US government flew him back, and he has been living with us ever since that time.  He is in a coma and on a ventilator.  The Doctors tell us he could live for years like this.

We knew that he was making a lot of money, but had no idea about any accounts anywhere.  We are not wealthy and caring for Dean has cost us a lot of money.  Almost ANY money you can forward would be helpful keeping him alive and relieving our financial burden.  A law enforcement officer's salary doesn't have much room for Dean's medical expenses.  Half of 5.5 Million dollars would go a long way to keep Dean comfortable.

I have heard about Banks like the Commercial Bank of Dubai and am aware of the scams they pull to keep money from those who deposit millions of dollars in them, just like my father's cousin.

I have closed that email account and will not be opening another.  Just reach out to me in this thread.  I'm sure that everybody here would love to read what you want me to do next to recover Dean's moiney.

Thank you.
