Welcome!!!! Glad you found the place. Quad is groovy. This is the “sticky” page that should always appear first. This is the third niche in the Web this site has appeared at. Past locations disappeared for reasons beyond my control.
I will start with an index to the many separate blog entries that comprise the “whole” that makes up this one among many sites covering quad / quadraphonic / quadrasonic / 4-channel audio etc.
The index below follows the format the blog is based upon; the newest entries appear first and the oldest, the ones written first, appear at the end of the index. This format should not cause confusion.
WordPress allows its blog users to view where blog visitors are visiting from.
This is done by the country of origin but no more than that.
Here are where some of our visitors originate:
European Union (not a country but a region but the visit statistics includes the EU)
Hong Kong (great meal at the China Fleet Club. Yum!!!)
Indonesia (patrolled the seas in the area to run off pirates)
Isle of Man
Jersey (likely Great Britain’s island)
Japan (Great times in the Ginza!!!)
Kenya (YAY!!! Kenya joined the crowd in March, 2014)
Korea (Chin Hae was a pretty place)
Mexico (of the several foreign countries I have been to Mexico is the only place I had to fight off attackers– 3 of them.)

Mongolia (Genghis Kahn, a mighty warrior of yore!!!)
Netherlands (some of my ancestors from there…Vikings!!)
New Zealand (where’s Old Zealand?)

Feel free to leave a comment, share some information or leave an opinion!!!
I am a resident of the USA with two military tours to several Asian countries bordering the Pacific Ocean with some bordering the South China Sea and some a little bit west of the Pacific Ocean and closer to the Indian Ocean.
I have a commitment to myself to offer my OPINION that the USA federal government does NOT truly represent the USA citizen population.
Some USA citizens are represented due to their socio-economic position but I believe that, in general, the USA federal government is similar to governments across the planet;
Those represented the most are the immensely wealthy people and BIG business firms.
The “common” folks, the average folks without HUGE amounts of wealth and thus powerless, are not well-represented in international politics or even inside their own country.
Such a complicated topic!!!
I just want people in other countries to know my belief that, too often, the USA is interacting with other countries NOT in the best interests of the masses of USA commoners or the common folk in other countries.
The elite classes of the world are more apt to assist each other while ALL elite classes tend to reap immense amounts of wealth and power.
It is the common folks, those working and producing and doing the work that ensures people have food to eat, a place to live, heal the injured, do those many tasks needing done.
The elites and the very rich… what do they do? They control. And they skim off too much of the wealth the common folks create.
The socio-economic hierarchies found in almost every human institution is pyramid-shaped with most of those within the institution or country or whatever at the bottom of the “pile” while the few at the top receive many benefits taken from those at the bottom of the socio-economic pile.
It is a form of “Ponzi scheme” that has existed from the proverbial dawn of human history.
The common people across the world have more in common with each other than with their ruling elites.
Thanks for visiting and I hope the information inside is helpful and all the best to you, your family, your friends, neighbors, co-workers, your society/culture and country and continent and hemisphere; whether north or south or east or west!!!
