Even worse, Thanksgiving, an entirely American festival, is being transported over here. Big shops are encouraging us to cook Thanksgiving dinners. Pumpkin pie and all. Yuck.

England did rid themselves of some religious fantics. So you do have that going for you. And a reason to celebrate.

Franklin Pierce (1804) happy birthday

In 1852, the Democratic party of the US was split into hostile factions, none of which could muster sufficient strength to secure the presidential nomination. The charming and unobjectionable Pierce was nominated as a compromise candidate. He unexpectedly trounced his opposition in the general election despite being largely unknown beforehand. However, Pierce proved unable to mediate slavery-related political troubles. As a testament to his unpopularity, he was the first US president to do what? More... Discuss

Finished ripping Taxi and got halfway through Barney Miller.

Carl

This is relevant to the "should I learn to play bass" thread.  Barney Miller theme is a fun run on the bass.

First thing I learned to play!

Started to clean the basement today. Finding my old racing gear and other memorabilia just brought a flood of old memories.

According to a TV news filler piece I just saw; 
The night before thanksgiving is the busiest evening of the year for bars.
Some days are busier - St Patrick's and Superbowl, but tonight is the busiest single night.

Don't be afraid of Craigslist either. Instruments are something that gets puchased and not used, to be sold of with a healthy layer of dust. Just do a minimum of research on what you're buying and avoid true 'starter pak' instruments. Judicious purchases can net you a perfectly adequate instrument at a minimal cost. Reality is that music stores are just like car dealers, the sales guy is commission driven and is more happy to sell more than you may need. They're less concerned with what you need than what you can afford.

Case in point, for approximately the price of the guitar you are investigating, Craigslist produced all of this:

None of this for more than $125, most averaging $30-70.

I'm not trying to dissuade you, but there's a lot of nice stuff out there that isn't pro gear but could be a great learning rig, without breaking you're bank. Even China can make decent stuff if you don't plan to make a living off it.  Good luck!
