I don't know what it is, but there doesn't have to be a reason anyways... I could go off on a Billy Joel rant from this point, and that might cheer me up...but I just don't know. Does anyone have some level of understanding of something pertaining to something like something that resembles pre-vacation blues or something?
Remember the Scott Expedition, of which three members died 100 years ago today
"Every day we have been ready to start for our depot 11 miles away, but outside the door of the tent it remains a scene of whirling drift. I do not think we can hope for any better things now. We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker, of course, and the end cannot be far. It seems a pity but I do not think I can write more. R. Scott. For God's sake look after our people."
Does anyone know anything special about Amerigo Vespucci?
I don't want any of you complaining about my lack of knowledge or to inundate me with theories about who really discovered the New World, I just need to know a few things about the voyage in which he discovered America...let's just say that it's for my Symphony.
Brace yourselves, WebDippers, we have an opportunity to say something that actually matters for a change! (Brits only, sadly). Instead of making the same old arguments to the same old people, why not say something to the government as they consider new legislation?

Guys, I got tired of having to hide the screen from my kids when I was reading the Forum posts because of the widespread use of the F-word and other profanity. So--it's not personal if I muted you, or your thread.
If there are playing at that level, they are your kids, but they are hardly kids. Jesus, Mujus! You gonna shelter them until you die and only then let them experience the real world? At least one of them is over 18 to play in a college orchestra. Last I checked, real colleges have *very* few child prodiges attending them and you have to attend the school to play in it's orchestra.
"Thats right Sarg, Mujus's 5 year old kids should be frequently exposed to live sex shows, mass executions, frecal freaks and... well, webdip. This will do them a lot of good and thicken their skins SO THICK Mmmmmmm! Hey it worked for Albert Fish!"
Draug. I don't know if you're just stupid, or if you just like making inane and foolish comments. But college orchestra's are typically the sort of thing run by a college for all ages. In fact most colleges with a conservatory, have orchestra's for a vast level of different ages.
I call bullshit on your "typically" comment. You point to *one* orchestra with a children's program. I live near (well 30 minutes from) and went to UC's College-Conservatory of Music and can tell you it only had a summer program for High School students and even that wasn't called a college orchestra. They called it the Summer Music Institute. And you had to be at least a Junior in high school to attend. How do I know? Cause I went to it my Junior and Senior years.
So *some* may have program's for all ages, but you speak out of your ass when you insist that college orchestras are *typically* for all ages and *most* with a conservatory have them.
Finally, considering *most* schools start teaching musical instruments in 5th grade, his kids, would at a minimum *probably* be at least 13 if they are in a community orchestra (I was in Middletown's Civic Chior and their Community Orchestra throughout sophmore, junior, and senior year and they had an age requirement of 15). So again, he is sheltering them at way to old an age for them to be sheltered.
