    I wasn’t sure whether to post this Concert Piano Duo Music on “Favorite Non Trumpet Music” or here.

  • RE: Horn damaged by a tech

    If it were me, I would strip the lacquer off the horn. I love a good "raw brass" Bach. But, I understand, that does not solve the issue. So, again, if it were me, I would kindly ask the tech to refund the money I spent, and then I would strip the lacquer.

  • RE: A little humour

    A young Scottish lad and lassie were sitting on a low stone wall, holding hands and gazing out at the Loch.

    They sat in silence for several minutes before the girl looked at the boy.

    “A penny for your thoughts, Angus,” she said.

    “Well, I was thinking. Perhaps it’s about time for a wee kiss,” he replied.

    The girl blushed but gave Angus a kiss on his cheek.

    The two then turned back to the Loch and continued to sit in silence again.

    “Another penny for your thoughts, Angus,” the girl said.

    Angus thought for a moment or two and looked concerned.
    “Well, my thoughts are a bit more serious this time,” he finally replied.

    “Really?” the girl asked. “Why?”

    “Do you think it’s about time you paid me that first penny?”

  • RE: Horn damaged by a tech

    From a legal perspective, your only way to be made whole would be to sue the tech and win in court. Although having a good case helps, it's likely to be far more expensive than purchasing a brand new horn, or having it repaired correctly. Some states won't allow you to collect attorney fees in consumer damages cases, even if you do win.

    @SSmith1226 That's the Irish for you!

    It’s an international problem. See below:

    A cowboy, who just moved to Montana from Texas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud.

    He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn.

    When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.

    The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy,
    "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it.

    It would taste better if you bought one at a time."

    The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers.
    One is in Arizona, the other is in Colorado.

    When we all left our home in Texas, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together.

    So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself."

    The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.

    The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way.
    He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.

    One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs.
    All the regulars take notice and fall silent.

    When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my
    condolences on your loss."

    The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs.

    "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains.

    "It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking."

    “It hasn't affected my brothers though."

  • RE: A little humour

    Patrick walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the corner of the room, drinking a sip out of each pint in turn. When he’s finished all three, he goes back to the bar and orders three more.

    “You know a pint goes flat soon after I pull it,” he says. “Your pints would taste better if you bought one at a time.”

    Patrick replies: “Well now, I have two brothers, one is in America and the other in Australia and here I am in Dublin. When we all left home, we promised that we’d drink this way to remember the days we all drank together.”

    The barman admits that this is a nice custom and says no more.
    Patrick becomes a regular customer and always drinks the same way, ordering three pints and drinking a sip out of each in turn, until they are finished. One day, he comes in and orders just two pints. All the other regulars in the bar notice and fall silent. When he goes back to the bar for the second round, the barman says: “I don’t want to intrude on your grief but I wanted to offer my condolences on your great loss.”

    Patrick looks confused for a moment, then the penny drops and he starts to laugh. “Oh no,” he says, “Everyone is fine! It’s me … I’ve quit drinking!”
