    I just cannot find a band, despite looking for nearly 2 years! It is as though someone has cast a spell or curse on me.:confused:
    Have you ever felt as though your destiny is out of your hands, for totally unexplainable reasons?
    Is there a seeming spell or curse that you would like lifted from your life?

    Yes, The inability to play fast, no matter how much I practice.

    You can't be trying very hard!

    I know the Midlands isn't the friendliest place I have ever been to, but even I don't think it is that bad!

    When you say you can't find a band, do you go to one, and they throw you out of the door as soon as you walk in then? Or do you mean you can't find a band at the precise level you want, with the exact seat you want offered unconditionally along with instrument of your choice, with a chauffeur-driven limousine to get there & back? ;-)

    Thanks for that Scotchy , though it has not been quite my experience.
    I have been a little fussy about travelling distances during this time, though I now realise that this may not have been in my favour.
    I had hoped to find a band looking for someone on the end chair, again, not helping the cause.
    You are right though, something will turn up.

    I'd quite like the "will anybody bother turning up to see me? Hmm, no..." curse lifted please because otherwise I may have to study for my specialist exams and that would be wrong...

    I'd love a spell that magically makes my children do what they're told the first time of asking....grrrrrrrr

    For some unexplainable reason, it is a knack that I was born with.
    My Grandkids can give their mom hell, though when I turn up, they are Angels!
    The same happened at work, walk into the classroom - and instant attention!
    (If anyone even suggests that it's my miserable looking face........!):wink:

    well in that case you can come over and get them to tidy their rooms?

    Just threaten them with the idea, that's just what my sister used to do with her girls!
    (No wonder they used to hide when I arrived!)

    Mark, I think maybe you should change your sig to euphless........

    As for me the curse of my good (nay beautiful) looks is thankfully slowly being lifted due to the gift of old age...... at last I can go out of a saturday evening without being accosted by various wenches etc etc

    I'm bandless and cannot find a band, mainly because the bands around my area are to good for a player like me. I'm so used to not playing I don't miss it, saturday evenings out on the lash is much more appealing than playing in front of a load of old grannies

    Here's just a few.

    My seeming inability to get a top B in tune!

    Stopping kids from sticking chewing gum under my lab benches.

    David Cameron and George Osborne

    Violins played badly

    Every other car on the road when I'm driving home from work

    The LBW rule (but not when I'm bowling!)

    Sorry to hear about your difficulties in finding a band Mark. I wouldn't have thought that it would have been this long given all your experience and ability.

    Don't mind it even when batting. Don't like umpires who don't know the laws around LBW, though. Grrrrr.
