    @bigdub The 180 is the overall length of the tubing in inches, and the 43 is the measurement in inches from mouthpiece to bell. S is for silver, of course. It's a BIG mutha!

    You know your trombones. I’ll have to trust you on that one, Jercho

    I really enjoyed this!

    @administrator Couple of times a week? Haven't got the time for that, nor the money; and my favourite carwash (which I visited perhaps three times a year) was closed down recently... tchnieeff!

    C8? I want one.

    It's 100% automatic.

    I have noticed a slight uptick in spam. I suppose that means the site is gaining traction on search engines. Anyway, if you see "spam", please flag it immediately so we can delete the thread and ban the account.

    Our garage space was sacrificed for a home shop for me and teaching space for my husband, so no cool car toys here. I sure do enjoy watching everyone else’s on the road, though! There are lots here in my neighborhood, and then sometimes I get to go out in my dad’s 64 Impala when I visit with him. He keeps saying he’s going to visit and drive a new toy home since the weather is better for old cars to survive in this area, along with no road salt. Hasn’t happened yet, though!

    I haven't even got a garage! I just go to the car wash a couple times a week.

  • RE: Band Re-start for Fall

    I'm happy to say that here in Austria and Germany, things are rapidly returnimg to normal... my wife premiered two shows within the last month, one being a musical revue 50s style, set in an old artists' care home... at the stroke of 6 pm, they have to be in bed whereas in former times that was when they got up from bed to prepare for the stage... fortunately, it's a magic clock and they are transformed back into their old selves, acting out their best roles again, in a whirlwind of melodies going from The Bat via Traviata to Don Giovanni; only the Descent into Hell of Don Giovanni is a bit different - he just ages and is back in his wheelchair in the care home...
    Last Friday, she did a new production of The Little Shop of Horrors, doing all the directing as well as singing Audrey Two and acting a few minor roles... both shows sold out to capacity, and not a mask in sight (proof of either having had Covid, being vaccinated or tested being required by law).
    In two weeks, she's singing Adelaide in Vogelhändler, and she is directing a new production of Hansel und Gretel in December, singing the part of the witch as well...
    As to bands, our big band is back in the rehearsal room with a tremendous innovation - we've invested in a CO2 sensor, and whenever a certain count is reached, we stop for an open windows break... works perfectly, and keeps everyone fresh and safe. Since we've got that sensor, rehearsals are about an hour longer than previously, and much less strenuous... first post-COVID concert on 30 October, a charity gig for an old peoples' home. www.bbmf.de
