I found a nice Yam 691 on CL last spring. It has been far more difficult to adjust to than I expected. Certainly not plug and play.

Find a Yam 354 thatís in good shape.

I could have used semi-comas. Perhaps I would have realized the second sentence isnít actually a sentence. In any event, it all is beginning to look like America was attacked and that it lost.

Iím beginning to think that Russia attacked the US and America is only now beginning to realize it and that America lost the battle.

Trumpís campaign comments about the election being rigged, his surprise win based on narrow wins in three states, his close ties with Russia and his constant attempts to deflect attention from, indeed, even criminally obstruct, the investigation, together with clear evidence of a Russian influence campaign and perhaps Russia even hacking into voting machines.

As far as I know, in the numbering system used by both Schilke and Yamaha, "A" immediately after the size number designates a shallow cup.  Maybe Yamaha has changed that.

You're right. Yamaha says as follows:

"The 48 rim combined with a very shallow cup. For alto trombones. Bright tone with good volume. Ideal for baroque compositions."

Yamaha provides a 48A with its altos. The A designates an alto backbore.

Not expensive, designed for alto (or, at least, some consideration paid to alto). If you find one at WWBW or MF, you can likely return it if you don't like it.

How so?


Also hope they remember to revise the divorce laws, as the first same sex couple to marry in the UK following the change tried to divorce a year later and only then did it become apparent that wasn't legal...so oops and the divorce laws had to be changed quickly too!

Because you can't count on the majority to protect minority rights.

Itís surprising to me that the majority supported gay marriage in a plebiscite.

An excerpt from Ellen DeGeneres' letter to the US Supreme Court:

"Portia and I have been married for 4 years and they have been the happiest of my life. And in those 4 years, I don't think we hurt anyone else's marriage. I asked all of my neighbors and they say they're fine."

Or, the national conversation about sexual harassment/assault victims has changed for the better, and the women are finally comfortable with coming forward now, especially since it is no longer possible for powerful people to easily suppress stories like this-- there is little tolerance for that anymore, and there is a large outpouring of support.

see: how quickly #metoo went viral, and even the most head-in-the-sand people across the nation went "sexual assault/harassment is way more widespread than we realized this must stop since I actually know X victims personally"

My bet is on that being the reason for coming forward after so many years. 40 years ago stories of assault and harassment could easily be swept under the rug by powerful connected people. That is no longer the case.

What startles me the most isn't the R vs D aspect of the conversation around Moore. What blows my mind is that he is being defended by people saying that god and jesus are OK with it, because otherwise a D would be elected, and that underage girls with older men are all over in the bible. That rationalization logic is utterly disgusting.

According to one lamebrain Republican theologian, it's ok because Joseph and Mary, well, you know. (Which might be missing one significant ingredient of the Christmas miracle)

Maybe Judge Roy was tumescent with Christian spirit?
