Good questions Marc. :slight_smile:

Why do you have to ask questions about music.
I see no correlation with inspections.
I hardly ever listen to music and never have.

I choose to present questions for education & a little entertainment.
I think it is much appreciated by most all!
I’m sorry if you are not a music fan.
Previously you have made two complaints, gave hints (that were incorrect), proclaimed a winner before time.

Perhaps you will be kind enough to attempt an answer.
I do not deserve your complaints.

I see how you took that as a complaint. Because I didn’t put a question mark after the word music?
You do a great job. I just wanted to know and you told me for entertainment purposes. Now I know.
So don’t jump on my back because I wasn’t jumping on yours. Okay?
I’m not in the mood for it today.

Dang, man, them’s tougher than a $2 steak

You don’t listen to music??? No wonder you’re so grouchy:mrgreen::p;-)

[size=3]YEA! I’m pleased Roy gave it a shot. Almost, but no prize.

In the spirit of being fair, a cool guy, rule-breaker, whatever & getting in trouble with my beloved committee,
I’m disclosing the answer to #5. I don’t think anyone will get it so this way it’s very fair for everyone with the remaining questions.
There are still 4 answers to address (in the past most times there were only 4 questions anyways).

Enjoy the music Roy my friend!
“Cousin” Kenny Vaughan IMO is the most technical, talented guitar player in Country Music. [/size] :smiley:

You couldn’t be more wrong!
Wrong, wrong, wrong, WRONG
Roy Clark could smoke that lil baby Vaughn like a summer sausage.

Which, coincidently, was the year I framed my first house.

The video was not intended to be a showcase for Cousin Kenny’s talent (who BTW is from Colorado).
Your opinion is acknowledged. :slight_smile:
As a former musician I disagree.
You had 2 of 4 incorrect.

**Congratulations Tim Williams for winning this weeks QOTW.
Good job!
Follow the directions to obtain your books. ** :smiley:

ps>> In 1986, Congress banned lead solder containing greater than 0.2% lead and restricted the
lead content of faucets, pipes, and other plumbing materials to no more than 8%**

Congrats, Tim!

But Marc, the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act of 2011 (RLDWA) revised the definition of lead free to lower the allowable maximum lead content from 8.0 percent to a weighted average of 0.25 percent of the wetted surfaces of plumbing products.

Just sayin’
