Yes, there was a member who claimed that I was not telling the truth and insisted on saying so even after my posts that I was offended by his following posts. Upon further insistence I had to make a clear call to stop him from lying to the forum about me. I also notified the moderators.

Aural tuners thieves and liars? Are you sure? I honestly can't remember that. But I can't imagine myself saying such a thing.


No, you just called us stupid. From page 3 of the Kawai Experts thread:

Quote:
I very much respect the craft and the professional craftsmen that are in this business.

Unfortunately it is hard to tell the same on their average intellectual level.
It is incomparably low.
Maybe I should not wear RED when I step into the arena.

Opera tenor you know that it was a joke that was posted after you swearing at me. That was the way I tried to handle a very improper response without notifying the moderators.
I am sorry if I misinterpreted your post then.

I just wish we keep it at a more civil level.

You wrote "BS" in the post above at that thread.

Best description of the story to date wink

The other funny thing is that due to "miracles of Internet cookies" I had an advertising for "turkish hairlines" just before the song (sorry I could not reszist)

So sometime more funny things than "tuning spinets and birdcages" happens on the forum.

Please give me a link to the lyrics so I can work my English.

The Gas Man Cometh - Flanders and Swann

'Twas on a Monday morning the gas man came to call.
The gas tap wouldn't turn - I wasn't getting gas at all.
He tore out all the skirting boards to try and find the main
And I had to call a carpenter to put them back again.
Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.

Great :

'Twas on a Monday morning the gas man came to call.
The gas tap wouldn't turn - I wasn't getting gas at all.
He tore out all the skirting boards to try and find the main
And I had to call a carpenter to put them back again.
Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
'Twas on a Tuesday morning the carpenter came round.
He hammered and he chiselled and he said:
"Look what I've found: your joists are full of dry rot
But I'll put them all to rights".
Then he nailed right through a cable and out went all the lights!
Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
'Twas on a Wednesday morning the electrician came.
He called me Mr. Sanderson, which isn't quite the name.
He couldn't reach the fuse box without standing on the bin
And his foot went through a window so I called the glazier in.
Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
'Twas on a Thursday morning the glazier came round
With his blow torch and his putty and his merry glazier's song.
He put another pane in - it took no time at all
But I had to get a painter in to come and paint the wall.
Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
'Twas on a Friday morning the painter made a start.
With undercoats and overcoats he painted every part:
Every nook and every cranny - but I found when he was gone
He'd painted over the gas tap and I couldn't turn it on!
Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
On Saturday and Sunday they do no work at all;
So 'twas on a Monday morning that the gasman came to call...

I have a good idea what Donald would have made of it, renaisance man that he was. I used to tune his Blüthner grand regularly in the '70's and we had some interesting conversations. Of course, I can't speak for somebody else.

Thanks for the clip, Ian.

Isaac, Yes. Michael Flanders was a master of British English idiomatic speech patterns. You have, in him, an amusing way of mastering some of them for yourself. There is a lot of his work online.
