Wonderful playlist...cant wait to hear this...lullabyes are one of my favorite kinds of music. And stories too! What joy. I don't have any kids to lull to sleep but I can sure use it myself. Great job by all, wonderful cover and so much loving time and effort to get this CD produced. Thanks again to all...

Subject: RE: 'Blue Bottle Special' CD
From: Stilly River Sage

I wish I'd dug out the songs I originally planned to. Technology slowed me down, but the exercise forced me to update my system here. I am in much better shape for sending songs, so if you DO plan a sequel, I can send something next time.

MMario, I haven't heard from you via PM--I'd be happy to inquire at work what they would charge to burn a couple hundred of these disks. We just printed a report that had a cd in it, and they cost sixty cents a piece (we burned about 1600 disks). Even if it goes up to as much as a 0.80 or a buck, at $15 a pop, like before, they'd be a nice fundraiser for the Mudcat.

From: Stilly River Sage

Tell me how many you think you'd need, because it may make a difference in the cost. But I might be able to wrangle a nice price for the 'Cat--at sixty cents each the press doubles their money on them already. I don't think I could get it below that--it's the price they offer campus customers. 100 would be $60, so sell five and you've broken even and paid to ship them. This price doesn't include sleeves or plastic containers, just the CD itself. It does include a black ink lable being printed on it (designed however you want to send it, fit to their template).

I visited my doctor today--he says no driving until August 18. I'll give the director of the press a call tomorrow instead of waiting to walk in. Do we know yet if it's okay with Max?

SRS

P.S.--I have a coworker who had foot surgery a day before I did, and she's allowed to drive already. The difference? My bunion was on my right foot, her bone spur was on her left. In Texas it's apparently illegal to drive in one of these surgical boots if it's on the right foot. So I'll keep my trips real short and around the neighborhood. No point in tempting fate. :)
