    Re: Resolutions

    I'd like to walk barefoot along a beach in Australia while fighting off Shelias and do a poor job of it. I'll probably end up sticking to the journey that is trumpet and continue to post here, at least until the Administrator starts reading my posts.

    I think the trumpet is a safer option than fighting some of the Sheilas around here.

    Sell all my student horns and buy another "Super Horn". Oh yeah, practice.

    The difference between a beginner and pro mouthpiece is practice - tobylou8

    Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.

    Practice more, keep up my obsessive cleaning and lubing. Plus have some issues on my secondary axes attended to. A couple of them have such clangy, leaky valves that I could inflate a balloon tied onto the bottom valve cap!!!

    Re: Resolutions

    Quit living vicariously (ya I looked it up) through all of you loosers and get a life! Ops...sorry. I dont mean that, trumpet players are the best.

    Seriously, to continue my work on becomming the kind of person that I would like to be friends with. Ive found that if you dont keep working on your character it goes backwards and you loose ground. I pray every day and set a daily goal small enough to be realistically reachable. I have to acomplish something and call it "done" or it just feels like Im spinning my wheels. Happy New Year to all.
