BEFORE I get bogged down in all the to-do list stuff, I send a few messages and fire out some social media queries about my problem emailing gmail users.

A few folks make comments and provide helpful replies, but nothing I can do just now. My pal Gareth says to contact him tonight – he’s helped his wife sort out a similar issue.

I’ve made working on new songs my priority for today and hit the studio. The black guitar – the one I fixed with a new battery box – has a terrible rattle coming from the resonator cone and I wonder if some of the wiring is touching the underside of the cone, I take the guitar over to the office, open it up and try to manoeuvre the wires form the battery box into a different position. Sure enough, the rattle has gone. I put the 1.3 hex key aside to keep in the guitar case is case a repeat operation is required.

It’s warmer in the office, tho’ and not my usual songwriting surroundings so I hang out in there and mess with some ideas.

I list most of the stuff I wanna sell on Facebook Marketplace which is quick and easy. I also list a couple of things on the iPhone’s Shpock app to see how it works then head out for a walk as the sun goes down over the hills.

Back home I do a bit of research and add DNS txt records containing Google verification code to the two domains I use for sending mail (radiotones.com and thebuzzgroup.co.uk)…I get verification for both. Wonder if that’ll help?

I’m about to go back to the house when an offer comes in Shpock for the EQ pedal I put up for sale. Five minutes later the deal is done and I’m packing it up to send off in the morning. There’s also a few Facebook enquiries about a mixer for sale… 🙂
