I tried to join tubenet. I need to know what instrument Arnold Jacobs played. I don't know. :(

Ah. Tuba! :)

But then I couldn't read those funny confirmation codes and was timed out. :(

Euph - what would you want to charge for that? They seem to be extremely rare over here!

Dear all,

Many thanks for your interest. :) I'll continue to pass on your info to my guy.

I thought we'd found something today. I was sent an email with good info and a nice pic. However, I then searched the name "T Norris" here and found it mentioned under one of the "scamming" topics. :(

My email was from a person who does have a tuba, but one which has forward facing valves, whereas my guy needs a forward facing bell.

John, I've passed on your suggestions - thanks.

FPT - I've passed on your suggestion too - we'll see what he does at the next gig! :)

Bruce - that device looks like you just need a commode underneath and you're set for the evening!  :-P I'll pass that on as well.

I've also had an email, so fingers crossed. Thanks all! :)

Hi all, my sousaphone player has developed a bad back and can no longer stand up and hold the sousa. He has an ordinary tuba, but thinks one with a forward facing bell would be much more suitable.

Does anyone have one, or know of one? He can pay up to 1000.

Many thanks.

Disappointingly cloudy on Monday, but looked good (although not spectacular) on Sunday.

This year, my band was almost booked to play for an Armistice Day event. It wasn't confirmed, so I eventually called to see why, and was told that the manageress thought we would be too loud. Hmmmm, surely not louder than war?!

I'm just in the middle of a FaceBook argument. It involves the phrase, "They gave their lives". This infuriates me every year. They did NOT give their lives, their lives were TAKEN, often by careless or thoughtless governments. Maybe some wars are justified, eg WWI and WWII, but I'm quite sure that none of the recent Middle Eastern wars have been.

I respect soldiers immensely and have sold poppies in the mall for a number of years, but to be drafted into an army and die for an unjustified cause is not, IMO, anything to celebrate. 

Sorry if this is controversial.

I haven't listened to, or watched, any news programmes since Brexit. June 24th. I thought that was the maddest thing I'd ever seen and was just SO upset by it.

But now this!!! The US has elected a misogynistic, xenophobic, several-times-failed businessman and complete lunatic as its president!!! HIS finger on the Red Button!!!

Anyone read Stephen King's The Dead Zone?

The Four Horsemen are saddling up. I'm frightened. :(

Hello Tim! Hi

Apparently, rule number 1 for growing pitcher plants is that you don't feed them anything via the roots. Mine are planted in sphagnum moss, sit in dishes of rainwater, and are never given any sort of fertiliser. I don't know what's up with them! Confused

Maybe anorexic....?

Hello!  Hi

I'm really very sorry for my recent absence. :(

I've been lurking on FB rather than here. Embarrassed! I apologise and will try to do better. :shuffle:

I'm very, very much upset and annoyed by Brexit, and alarmed and annoyed by the American election options. Mad

I have two pitcher plants. The idea that they eat insects is a complete myth!! :-P

I've tried to feed them with flies I get from my lab, but it just doesn't work. The flies are NOT digested - they just sit there and rot. My new pitcher plant actually caught two flies the other week, but again, they haven't been digested. Weird.

Speaking of nature, why have my birds disappeared? I have a feeding station on my balcony, comprising holders for seeds and suet balls, and also a container of seeds, crumbled suet and mealworms.

Earlier this year, I had three blue mammalian protuberences, two great mammalian protuberences and two robins regularly attending. Now, nothing. Where have they gone? Surely, they can't all have died? :(

[edit] Oh for heaven's sake!! I've been censored!!

Is it my fault that certain small birds are called t*its???? :D

[edit edit]

The little running doggie has disappeared from my sig. :(

That must mean that the member hosting it for me has also disappeared. :( :(

Is this the new forum? Will the old one die slowly?

Leif

No. We have the same forum (this one!).

I like it and I'm hoping it will continue. :)

I'm not sure what will happen with the new one.

You can find it here....

We have had no indication whatsoever that RLB will not continue to support this site.

Had a quick peek at the new one. I hate the look of it. It's just like a thousand other fora.

It's like The Open Horn used to be, and that didn't last long.

This - The Trombone Forum - is the only forum I know which looks good. It looks different and I like it.

I won't be moving over.

However, I hope it goes well for you all, whoever you are and whatever you want from it.

I would like to know when was the last time that anybody on the moderating team (staff) had any contact with Richard? Has anybody made a serious effort to get in contact? Like maybe going to see him, if we know where he is. Do any of the members know how to get in contact with him - that might help.

My viewpoint is that Richard rescued this site when the previous owner became disenchanted. He put a lot of time, effort and I suspect money into the TTF website and gave us a wonderful window to the world of trombones and trombonists. I think he has a perfect right to consider that he owns the asset. I do know that he did at one time sell advertising space on it. As far as the content is concerned, he has always encouraged that the Terms of Use are upheld and, when he was also a contributor to the content, gave us lots of good info. That only seems to have changed when he became ill with heart problems. After that he tackled some small rebuilding etc., and placed that now out-of-date request for contributions. That seems to have been the last we heard from him. Is that correct? Or does someone still have access to him and is not telling us? First of all, I would just like to know that he is well! I suspect he is not because this is just not like the old Richard.

As far as contingency plans are concerned, I know that I always keep copies of really interesting information that appears and I would recommend that others do the same.

Personally, I would just like to see Richard back and I would like to see the TOU strengthened, particularly with regard to advertising. It is too easy to get around the present terms e.g. http://tromboneforum.org/index.php/topic,73670.0.html  42 pages about one brand! Yeah, RIGHT.
 

I'm in complete agreement with Grah. Also, I agree that Billy is the only one who has reliable contact with RLB.

Thank you! :)

I'm on FB, under my proper name, and am happy to "friend" any of you.

But I'm still hoping we will carry on here.... :)

*sneaks in quietly*

I'm still living in hope that RLB will continue to run the Forum and may, one day, come back as a member.

OK, I'm old enough to know better, but still.... :shuffle:

*sneaks out again*
