Stay strong my friend. I went through a veritable nightmare of a divorce a few years ago, lawyers financially destroyed me, but I didn't lose the most important things in my life, my kids. Life as a single father is difficult. Don't even think about divorce proceedings unless you're very serious. Things may be retrievable at this stage. No marriage is perfect and couples do work things out after worse things than this. Use rational thought and less emotion, difficult to do, but essential in my opinion. I sincerely hope that things work out well for you, John

As your emotions go up and down, Dario, there'll be times when that "devil's advocate" advice echoes in your mind.  Do you want that to happen?  It's going to be tough enough as it is.  You might consider whether continuing to read words like "It's over" and "She's banging him" is going to be good for you (!).  Just a thought.  (I put this here because I'm not trying to start a fight on that thread, but I still wanted to say this.)

Cigar Box Guitars

Does anybody here have any experience with cigar box guitars?  The title is pretty self-explanatory; they're guitars made out of cigar boxes.I've seen people get very creative with these and produce some pretty cool results.  I've made about 10 of them myself, but I'm nowhere near the caliber of some builders.  Hank Snowden has some pretty cool tutorials and guitars if anyone is interested.I've made all of mine electric and they are really fun to shred on.  They're tuned to an open G (GDG.)…See More
