    Happy Birthday!

  2. Hi David - I am a physician - Family Doctor. In addition to seeing patients, I work for the University of Illinois College of Medicine. I have been teaching medical students and resident physicians for the past 16+ years. I love it. Farion (aka: frw)
  3. So have I. Displaying location under the avatar is an excellent idea, and more useful than the other stuff as far as I'm concerned. At this point I have an awful feeling of deja vu though.(Why doesn't the stupid spellchecker supply accents to French words used routinely in English? I can't be bothered to go and find the characters and that would be a good consolation for always trying to change my S's to Zeds...) I think the location used to be displayed next to posts, and that we've been told before that it isn't possible anymore. Am I dreaming that? Decided to go add my location. I just want to say I love C.net. I appreciate everyone's comments.
  4. Loved the song Alan. One day, I hope to play as good as you. Farion
  5. I was just looking at Bob Tedrow's website and saw a picture of him holding a pencil in his left hand. So he is either left-handed or ambidextrous. I am left-handed as well. Are they other Left-Handed Concertina players out there? If so, do you find it harder to play the melody on the right side? Farion
  6. That's really beatiful. And is a very good guideline to have into account, even more now: yesterday my wife made a test & realized that 'we' are just 2 weeks pregnant. I've no words. Cheers, Fer Congrats to you and your wife Fer!!! That is awesome. My wife and I have 5. They grow up quick. I think one of mine will take my concertina. Farion
  7. What part of Illinois? I'm in Normal and I play EC. I'm in Woodstock. I'm in Rockford, so really close. I have just started learning. You already sound light years ahead! Farion
  8. I will often go camping with the boy scouts as I have 4 sons and one of my friends asked me if I would take my Edgley to play by the campfire. My reply was - "Not on your life." I would be scared to death that it would get wet, ruined.
  9. This is way to out there. Stephen, I enjoyed this and love learning about something new. Farion
  10. Sounds good... What did you get? Dave I have an Edgley C/G Performers Model. It is absolutely beautiful.
  11. The dog has stopped whining, but is now laying down on the other side of the room. Poor guy!
  12. Well, my concertina finally arrived 2 hours ago and I have had it in my hands non-stop. I am happy and excited. Quick question for the group. How tight do you make the hand straps. By the way, our dog hates it. He has been whining with every sound that has come out of the concertina, but at least he doesn't try and go away. Just lays there.
  13. Way to go! She is one of my favorite actresses.
