I did smile, for sure.  Do you suppose we could have
grog@ on bassoon?

Slightly more seriously, look WAY back in the archives 
(well, less than 15 years, more than 5) and see if you can
find W. Palfreman's take on the Beatles "Let it Be".  "BSD,
BSD, BSD, yeah, BSD ... there will be an answer..."

I don't know if I could perform with such a group, but I'd
be interested in helping produce the studio work.  Unfortunately,
my audio box runs Windows.  Win98, AAMOF.

My synth is on its last legs, too.
