  1. I sure will. Thank you. Take care and get your son well! Journ
  2. rainyann, Thanks for the words---in fact, it is going quite good considering! I've actually completed my treatments (chemo AND radiation) and they can not find any live cancer cells anymore! Yoohoo! But, they are keeping a close close eye on me now. . . I pray it doesn't come back. I haven't been on here posting because of my cancer, as I was in the hospital sick for almost the whole time. But, now I am back on and off, and I am already getting "addicted" again! Glad to hear that you are listening to the CD--- I'm in the process of producing a solo album and another band CD right now----Due to come out in May. I pray your son gets through this all right and with strength and determination and a smile. Fiddlefaddle, I've missed you and your words, too---as well as rainyann and everyone else. Love, Journ
  3. AshNaj, How cool is that! That is awesome. I live about 3 hours east of GR right now. Too bad you aren't going to Cornerstone as well----that would be neat to know someone when I go. Yes, I've been there to visit, and I loved it! Tabbicat: I've never been to the music camp--in fact I didn't even know they had one! I need to look into that now! I don't know yet who my violin teacher will be, but I do know that they are planning to build a music building---however, I don't think it is supposed to be completed for a couple years or so. Ah well. . . Lovin' music, Journey
  4. Yes, I am majoring in music (actually, I am double majoring in Biology as well), and I will be attending Cornerstone University here in Michigan. And, I will be living in the dorms ---- maybe or maybe not with a roommate. Thanks for all of the advice everyone! I appreciate it! Musically, Journey
  5. Rainyann, Hi!! My two cents is to try to get your son every opportunity (that he wants) that you can. I don't know about the PICC lines in the arm, but I had a port line leading to my heart a couple months ago----and even though it was uncomfortable at times, I still played (the port was right at the place under my left collarbone where my fiddle rests). They pretty much make things like PICC lines and ports "heavy-duty" for whatever they may encounter. My advice: talk to the doctor. Tell him what you are up against, and I am sure that he will say it is all right to play with it. But, other than that, it is really just how comfortable your son is playing with it in. I have been battling cancer this last year, and one thing that I have learned is to do all that you can (and WANT!) to do IN SPITE of whatever illness you may have. Things like orchestra, camp, and playing in general may be hard for your son, but if he wants to do it-----I say go for it with all that he has! Hopes this helps. Musically, Journey
  6. Hello everyone! Long time, eh? Well, I am heading to college this upcoming fall and I am a little worried about my practicing time. As it stands now, whenever I feel like practicing I just go to my room and practice---but in college, as you know, you have to go to the "practice rooms", hauling all that you need with you. As a college student (or previously as one), did you find that you didn't have the time to pick up everything and go to these rooms? I, of course, am going to keep practicing, but I am looking for any tips that you have that could make that whole process a little easier. Thanks a bunch. In love with music, Journey www.fireweedspirit.com
  7. Thanks for the replies, everyone. I need to get to school now, but I will check on everything later, alright? Thanks, Regina
  8. Soundboot: Thank you so much for your reply. I play in an acoustic Irish string band and the only drum we have is an Irish bodhran, so I don't have much competition concerning drums. I have heard of the Baggs pick-ups, as a friend uses one. I have also heard that the Fishman pick-ups and pre-amps are good----have you had any experience with these? Also, what kind of an amp would you need for a fiddle? Is there any special type, or just any amp? Thanks so very much, Regina
  9. Dear friends, I have just received a generous offer from my uncle that he will buy me an amp, pre-amp, and a pick-up for my fiddle---a sound system for my fiddle. He told me to tell him what I want and he will get it for me and to me. He said that price is no factor---to get the best and what I want. Thing is, I don't know what is out there and what is best. Any suggestions? I really need help to know what is the best thing to get for my fiddle. Thanks a bunch. Love, Regina www.firespirit.com
  10. Jane, Sounds wonderful! Thank you. I will have it shipped to you when your cheque arrives. Millie: Received your check last night, and your lovely letter. Thank you. Your CD is all packaged and ready to be put in the mailbox on my way out this morning. Take care, Regina/Journ
  11. Jane, How silly of me! I just assumed Euros, and forgot all about pounds. Well, anyways, I asked him about that, and he said that you can still send a check, but for 12 pounds to cover shipping costs and everything that he figured out. How about that? Does that work? I hope so. Take care, Journ/Regina
  12. Millie: Thank you. And also thank you for the warm wishes. May your Christmas be wonderful as well. Have fun in your travels! Take care, Regina
  13. Millie: That is the correct person and right address, and I can assure you that you can trust me. It won't have to clear the bank. What I do is that when a check comes to me, I send out a CD, even before the check clears, trusting that it will clear. Millie, I trust you, so you don't have to worry. I guarantee that you can trust me. I am just a 16 year old, trying to branch farther out into her music career by selling her CD's. Trying to fulfill a dream. . . Thank you for trusting me. That is very nice to know. As soon as your check comes in the mail, I will mail you a CD. Promise. Take care, Regina
  14. Jane, I talked to him and he said that if you just send a check for 18 Euros and make sure you send us your address, we can send you a copy. But, please make it payable to and send it to: K2 Recording 266 Hawthorne Ranch Rd. Prudenville, MI. USA, if you could, so it could be taken care of by that particular account. (That is our recording business, so the international money exchange can be better handled by them, rather than my personal address. . .). Thank you, Regina
  15. Jane: I just sent an inquiry about it to the manager. I don't know exactly how to go about that, but I think that he would know what to do. So, I sent him an e-mail and I should have an answer for you soon. Crystal: Actually, we just got a new website. It is www.fireweedspirit.com People can order CDs off of the website by sending the payment to the name and address listed there, or by sending it to my address listed above. As of right now, we don't have a means of ordering off of the internet, so we have to do it this way. But, either address is fine. j: The sound card in my computer is messed up, so at the moment, I can not post a sound clip. Once the sound card is fixed, I have to figure out how to do it. So, I don't have any. I am sorry, as I know people would like to hear it. Thanks everyone. Stay in the music, Regina
