    After about 3 minutes it finally popped into my head ...duh. Gio. Rossini.

    The theme music was primarily taken from the "March of the Swiss Soldiers" finale of Gioachino Rossini's William Tell Overture, which thus came to be inseparably associated with the series. The theme was conducted by Daniel Pérez Castañeda,[26] with the softer parts excerpted from Die Moldau, composed by Bedřich Smetana.

    Great weather today, ...

    .
    got out on the Touring bike for my favorite ride. Dragged home 11 pounds of stuff
    (included 2 LP's) .... best thing of the day was these cans. have never really gotten
    into Yammy's as I've always been happy with Senns. So they work great, fine condition,
    but an "I" DAP just won't drive them well. Hooked them to my integrated amp and they really
    came alive. On the web forums they seem to have quite a following . . Lots of mid detail,
    nice smooth highs and great bass when called for.

    For checking them out I put up the ST from "Skyfall" , sounded so good that I listened to the
    whole thing.

    bought a pair of JBL's today and all I got to
    haul home were some crummy tags

    (58 pounds was going to be a bit much for the bike,
    gonna drive down and get them tomorrow)

    Sound PDG , need refoams, of course .. all drivers functioning. These are the
    originals with the 116A's.

    The foilcals say L19, but the binding posts are "twist type" ,
    does this make them late models , just before the "A" version ?

    Sure are tight clearances on those 116A's

    After refoaming LF's, think I'll rotate them 180 when re-installing.

    If you leave one woofer mounting screw out and play them, you'll be surprised how much air can shoot out such a small hole,
    particularly at system resonance. ... it was surprising and a bit of nerdy fun.

    Wait! I thought proficiency at billiards​ was the sign of a misspent youth.

    Hey, I augmented my Navy meager pay with 8-ball. Nobody would play me when
    I shot natural right handed, so learned to shoot lefty too.

    Dad bought me a table for 6th grade graduation, practice kept me out of trouble.

    (except for an incident at the Santa Barbara Boy's Club. I waited my turn in line for
    the good table, won my game and was red hot that day. 9 straight wins. Then some
    little moron finally got his turn to play. I broke, sunk all mine and then the 8 , he never
    got a shot, so of course he slammed me in the lip with the butt end of his cue when I wasn't
    looking. That was the only way to get me off the table that day .....)
