  1. valentino97, Yeah, I think edhuddl had a little typographical error, and typed 1990 instead of 1890. edhuddl, Cool. :-) Unfortunately, it looks like you perhaps didn't read the ISMACS serial num...
  2. Steptoe1, Ask and ya shall receive. Kind of. I got a reply from somebody in the Microsoft Community, with a couple of options. One kinda sucked (in my tiny opinion, but YMMV): https://www.wikiho...
  3. jbird, Great, thanks. I'm curious as to what Janome might say about that very low serial number. :-)
  4. Wenderella, You're welcome. It seems particularly difficult to ID china pattern names, as there are literally thousands. Indeed, a lot of them have only numerical names. :-(
  5. P.S. I've surrendered, and asked Microsoft whether there's any replacement for Windows Media Player's archaic package Winter Fun Pack 2004.
  6. Using "267383 TF," it popped right up: https://www.discogs.com/Wayne-Fontana-And-The-Mindbenders-Um-Um-Um-Um-Um-Um/master/235185 Um Um Um Um Um Um https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHFFnxa2EGM ...
  7. Ugh. Another bad editing day for me. "This particular release apparently came out in 1968" should read "This particular release apparently came out in 1969."
  8. Steptoe1, This particular release apparently came out in 1968 (it popped right up when I entered "7N.17726" into the search window at discogs): https://www.discogs.com/Sandie-Shaw-Think-It-All-Over...
  9. Sigh. I'm having a bad edit day. "Sometimes the label might look exactly like yours." should read "Sometimes the label might not look exactly like yours."
  10. yougottahavestuff, That is some pretty sad news about Diamond. :-( Steptoe1, that old Windows Media Player tool wouldn't help you with vinyl. To find something like this, go to discogs: https...
  11. Actually, I stumbled on this via Microsoft support, but it requires a login, so I haven't tried it out: https://soundiiz.com/
  12. Oh dear. I decided to do a little poking around the InterTubes for a replacement tool (for that sixteen year old WMP tool), and went down a couple of techno rabbit holes -- to no avail. :-( Anybody...
  13. Steptoe1, OK. If you do find a copy to download and install, one caveat: after installation, you'll probably want to do this: Disable Icon038A524F in Task Manager > Startup Otherwise, every tim...
  14. Vynil33rpm, Groovy indeed. };-) https://www.discogs.com/The-Zombies-Shes-Not-There-Road-Runner/release/6337601 The Zombies - She's Not There https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2hXBf1DakE I d...
  15. Brunswick, Cool. :-) https://www.discogs.com/Wings-Live-And-Let-Die-/master/49073 Live And Let Die (2018 Remaster) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NR0UmZcf89E As to Sinatra's opinion about...
  16. Steptoe1, Well, maybe I opened my big mouth about an archaic tool too soon. I just had a look around, and didn't find the specific release (Winter Fun Pack 2004 for Windows XP) available out there ...
  17. jbird, You're welcome. :-) The only reason I was able to find the information relatively quickly (nowhere near as quickly and easily as with Singer sewing machines that have serial numbers preceded...
  18. Ugh. "my own fairly CD collection" should have read "my own fairly extensive CD collection."
  19. Steptoe1, It probably would have been easier with some kind of number (e.g., MC 71/3), but fortunately, "The Great Composers and Their Music Collection" only produced a handful of Chopin hits: http...
  20. officialfuel, The amount of quality ornamentation that was done on relatively 'humble' things like gasoline pumps even as late as 1961 amazes me.
  21. This serving piece looks like the same pattern, but unfortunately, the owner doesn't name it: *snip* Vegetable Dish By Theodore Haviland Limoges France, Dated 1893-1903 Discontinued. Condition i...
  22. Wenderella, Beautiful. If it's any help, this Haviland website dates a backmark with the name Theodore underlined to 1903: https://www.havilandonline.com/images/backmark/Mark-p.jpg *snip* ...
  23. Oops, I just checked again, and the discogs URL with the asterisk substitution failed. It might be one of those situations where it stops working once it's been submitted as a comment in CW S&T becaus...
  24. I was fascinated by the square medallion: *snip* Referred to in "Spinks" catalogue (The UK's Leading coin catalogue) as a "Medallion", these were produce ONLY for insertion in Royal Mint Proof ...
  25. michaeln544, Beautiful. :-) Yeah, Great Britain's old pence was a vertiginously complex system, or at least it seemed that way to some of us 20th century former colonials. };-) *snip* Prior t...
  26. Golgatha, Beautiful. I love vintage libraries.
  27. Brunswick, I agree. :-) I tend to censor my own posts/comments with asterisks when I use words that potentially might either offend an actual CW member, or cause them difficulties because it would ...
  28. Just doing a little cross-commenting here: *snip* SPECTACULAR EXTENDED BROW LINE CAT EYE GLASSES FRAME BY BAUSCH & LOMB. GOLD FILLED FRAME WITH WINGS THAT ARE EXQUISITELY POSITIONED ABOVE THE LE...
  29. raven3766, I did another Internet search for these, and must have been holding my mouth right this time: *snip* SPECTACULAR EXTENDED BROW LINE CAT EYE GLASSES FRAME BY BAUSCH & LOMB. GOLD FILLED...
  30. iggy, Dunno for certain about Brunswick, but I was mostly joking. };-)
  31. raven3766, You're welcome. :-) BTW, I was reminded that I took a bit of a deep dive on another of your posts, the one about the unusual gold-framed glasses. I even took the liberty of making a copy...
  32. art.pottery, Good advice. :-)
  33. tharless62, The history of Capodimonte is complicated: *snip* The "N" mark of Capodimonte dates from the Royal Manufacturer of Capodimonte in Naples, Italy, which is often reported to have conti...
  34. Brunswick, Eh, yeah, "Buick." That's the ticket. };-) Warning, some of these links are NSOOAK (not safe outside of a kennel): https://www.discogs.com/Elton-John-The-Bitch-Is-Back-Wrap-Her-Up/rel...
  35. jbird, Cool. :-) What caught my eye was that doodad on top of the arm (it's part of the thread path and provides tension). That's something one sees on certain models of New Home sewing machines. ...
  36. AnythingObscure, Yeah, I see now that PhilDMorris already invoked the SP word. };-) I'm afraid that I'll have to disagree with you about steampunk. I suppose there have been some vintage things tra...
  37. OK, I'm not paying sufficient attention. You posted this under the "Capodimonte Figurines" catagory, but neither your post title nor the description mentioned anything about Capodimonte, so I initiall...
  38. tharless62, Beautiful. :-) I don't know that it's 'genuine,' but that looks a bit like a Capodimonte mark (I think the little crown has too many 'spikes' on it): https://appletreedeals.com/capod...
  39. P.S. Manikin is also quite right about keeping some hard copy documentation of the family story with the figurine. It'll help your family down the road. My own mother did me that favor, and it ensured...
  40. AnythingObscure, Cool. :-) I was thinking to myself that it looked vaguely steampunk, and when I searched for clockgears, guess what I found?: https://www.amazon.com/NX-Garden-Steampunk-Assorted...
  41. lokasage, Cool. :-) And thanks for providing the additional information about your grandmother. Manikin is quite right that somebody's grandmother might well still have been purchasing things in...
  42. brunswick, Very cool. What a voice. https://www.discogs.com/Simply-Red-Picture-Book/master/25886 Simply Red - Holding Back The Years https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG07WSu7Q9w
  43. Brunswick, You're welcome, as always. :-) Three Dog Night did mostly covers, but they had good taste: *snip* Each selection, including 11 Top 10s, seven of them gold singles, has been 96k/24-...
  44. Wufnstein, Cool. :-) A search for "Prince Super Lighter 295754" turned up numerous hits, albeit none with the exact imagery as on yours, e.g.: https://www.powerofonedesigns.com/products/gold-asi...
  45. usmc0311210, Cool. :-) Watchsearcher is quite correct about the decoding of the serial number. I believe I've found an old PDF scan of a Lane brochure that shows it. It's on page 11, and it's de...
  46. Brunwick. Cool. Hoyt Axton was an interesting old boy. G*d D*mn the pusher man. };-) https://www.discogs.com/Three-Dog-Night-Joy-To-The-World/master/155274 Three Dog Night - Joy to The World...
  47. Brunswick, Thanks for expanding on the concept of recording. :-) raven3766, Modern artists and recording studios probably use digital media, but back in Elvis' day, the master recordings were done ...
  48. raven3766, You're welcome. I personally am not all that knowledgeable; I just like trivia and researching things. I don't think that Presley actually recorded these sides in Germany. It looks like ...
  49. Brunswick, Yep. :-) Priscilla's mother and step-father initially were not too enthused about the idea of their little girl dating Presley: *snip* In a recent exclusive interview with Closer ...
  50. These are interesting tidbits: *snip* 1987: Arthritis forces Hayes to retire from Federal Paper Board. He begins painting in and begins to alter his style. *snip* Although the artist picke...
