"Please give me a break! I was just kidding with Salah and the guys. Me and Salah are duds, OK! This is a person that I do have the utmost respect for. So my friend you can now crawl back under your rock. If you would…"
"Cindi, I do not know about WST. The guys who you can tell have the best interest of the artform at heart usually goes on sabatical after a while. Always when it gets interesting and we need their input. I AM CALLING ALL YOU JOKERS…"
"Hi Cindi, every time I mention steelband as a business there is this one certain individual that takes offence. I really do not know what his thinking is. It is as though to him STEELBAND is dead and all we should do is reminesce…"
"Mr. Glen, first and foremost let me say, you have NEVER heard me argued any garbage on this forum. What you get from me 100% of the time is FACTS, FACTS and more FACTS. And I might add, all CAN BE SUBSTANTIATED, do not be…"
"Glen, every time you thumb your nose at the idea that steelbands are business entities, I cringe. You seem stuck back in the days when steelbands played under trees at school fetes etc. I would like to respectfully welcome you to modern…"
"Sidd, very good observation! She is tucked in the back in the dark as though she was an after-thought. It is good that she is with the group, but the PAN clearly IS NOT an integral part of the music. SHE NEVER GOT A SOLO…"
"Hey, Foy, It's just that the modern tuners are not able to get that true Double Tenor tone, Then again, when you come to think of it, since there isn't a great demand for Double Tenors the tuners are not wasting their time to get that tone…"
"Bede, this talk about a Double Second and a Double Tenor sounding the same goes deeper than tuning. Without even hearing the instruments, I would bet good money that the double second has been compromised by being cut too short. If both…"
"Cindy, if you are on board with SIDD'S title, then it is a done deal. We are not going to mess around and let trivialties bogg us down. We are going to set a tone of PEDAL TO THE METAL. If the idea has merit, we run with…"
"Most honorable GHOSTLY ONE, greetings and salutation from the Evergreen State. I was wondering if the Knuckle Heads finally beated you into submission and locked you back in your crypt. We have not heard from you in some time. …"
"Hi Cindy, I have a few friends that I have run this by before and they are in full support. Now that the Talking Ghost is back from his crypt, I will set a fire under him and shoot Salah an email. Hopefully, we can get the ball…"
"Very good Cindy! I am glad someone finally cut through the chase and want to make a start. I know that everyone of us have different situations and circumstances. What would you guys/gals think of putting together a gathering of Pan…"
"Glen, I beg to differ. The Pan Community has numbers but we are grossly lacking in organization. This has been our Archilles heel all along. As to political clout, this is not something you go to the store and buy. This is…"

I know what you mean about dialogue with our fellow readers. I sometimes put out a trivia question here and there, but only one person has responded in 16 months.
If you are residing in the US please call me at (954) 792-1879. I know that you have listed Antigua and Barbuda, but I sometimes list T&T although I reside in Florida.
Well, drop me a line at: Laventl@aol.com. This way we can dialogue personally.
