    I don't doubt. :-) My major concern is that I will need to be able to tell a decent instrument from a piece of junk, and I can't do that now. I also want to avoid spending money this close to the holidays, really.

    But right now at my current knowledge level, I'm a lot more likely to not know what to look for in a good used cornet, both because of ignorance and because I can't play well enough to put anything through its paces and determine which ones are good and which ones are junk. If I buy something now and get a decent piece of ordnance, it will be purely by accident.

    I expect applause from everybody. I expect penicillin for the clap.

    I am surprised the meaning of this has eluded anyone, to be honest, but no offense intended. Really, I wish N+1 would happen more for me, on the other side of it, as in: people needing just one more painting or print. Not that it doesn't, but that it would happen more. Not directed to anyone here, Doc. Please don't holler at me......your's is coming, promise. :roll:

    Well, that's why you have neutered every man within a mile.

    What happens if you're allergic to Penicillin like I am? :)

    I'm afraid you have no recourse but abstinence. My condolences. :-)
