    I hate that - I wish the board would return you to the post you were reading when you replied. I have an old laptap and the refresh rate is slow.

Both were pretty nice, even though the Dobrinski piece was complete with her usual random time and key signature changes.
    So you have Schlemerich (sp?) also. We had the discussion at the last practice that someone wanted the handles to be color coded so that the accidentals were black and the naturals were white like a keyboard. Although that would be nice, we aren't going to come up with the funds to replace our bells with Malmark bells to get that feature.

    I have to admit that the end of the Texas - Michigan State game has been exciting.

    I have never noticed, but my current director says that the Malmarks have superior sound quality. Different overtones. Maybe I'd notice if I heard them one after the other.

    Turk - if you're tired of the dead Korean shtick, I also have a horse and a soldier haniwa. In 4th to 6th century Japan, these statues started appearing on graves in Japan. One version of the origin is that the servants/soldiers/animals of a ruler would be buried alive in the deceased's tomb. Someone in power couldn't stand the sound of the people buried alive and instituted the policy of burying terra cotta replicas instead. FYI - mine are not original - they are small replicas.

    Only 32 to reach 7,500 - can we do that in just over an hour?

    I've never heard them side by side to judge. Frankly, my ear probably isn't good enough to notice the difference. I'm just used to ours. I would like to find a place to learn how to work on the bells. I think we have a few that could benefit from some adjustments but I don't know enough to do them. I can change the clapper from S to M to H and have replaced the collars on two that cracked. No one else wanted to do it so I did.l

    I have taken to keeping the tools at hand when we play. One service, a bell fell apart just as we finished a piece and before the next piece with no tools at hand. Fortunately, someone had a paperclip and we quickly tightened the screw on the clapper.

    One of our ringers thinks he knows how to fix bells. He tightened all of them before our last performance. There were several times I tried to ring and no sound came out. It's really amazing how quickly we become accustomed to our bells and how hard we have to ring them to get just the right volume.

    I have a batch of spaghetti sauce in the slow cooker and it is smelling like Italian heaven. Mmmmm. This is the first time I've cooked in forever. My guy does all the cooking and it was killing him not to be in charge.

    So your house smells like Anthony, Iowa? Tones Spice donated garlic salt for them to use on the roads.

    That's why I would like to learn how to work on them before I start messing with the springs and the tension bolts (which I'm sure has a much more technical term.) I think our D6 needs work, or I do, because it seemed to want to double ring on me last week.

    It does! I used lots of garlic. I think it's hilarious that they used garlic salt on the streets. Very resourceful.
