I'll keep my original pair of KEF 102/2 and AR3a speakers, but I'll probably give away the rest as we try to declutter.
Now that we've moved to a smaller property at the beach, we have parking for only two cars, so the MB E55 AMG wagon and Boxster S are those cars and are regularly driven. The climate and hilly rural roads around Montecito make it ideal for a roadster.
My coin collection is index funds at Vanguard, although I recently inherited a penny collection with a few valuable pennies.
Never been to Montecito aside from going down 101 but to Santa Barbra many times real nice area . You ever see Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bridges, Rob Lowe, Ellen DeGeneres, Drew Barrymore, Megyn Price, or Eric Schmidt around town ?
Nice coin and audio Collection there markets are doing well with all the free money and all probably until a major unfortunate geo political event and or tapering am enjoying it while markets are working well this is a understandably a long bull market under the current conditions and all .
Maybe an OLED TV soon prices are declining , nothing extravagant probably 65" at most whenever Sony or Panasonic get around to it bought 3 new sets last year ,one this year and one in 2012 and 2011 so I really don't need one they are all in use ,2 re purposed as extra PC screens maybe I could sell one or give away when I go OLED at least on one set .
I probably should sell off the 3 vintage Pioneer SX monsters and a few speakers out back and the mt.bikes so someone can enjoy them like I did for a good while . I don't use them or ride anymore and the modern gear in the studio works better .
No company vehicles anymore in retirement but a late model GMC ext cab pick up and Ford compact all paid for and the hobby RX7 drifting beater and the mountain bikes I don't ride anymore.
