New on the Site-

May

Just for your info, I'm going in to hospital for a knee replacement May 22. Been putting this off for a long time but now - gotta get it done. I trust all will go well.

February

2.3.17 Kinda obvious I haven't done much on the site for a while. Kept up to date, but not made any structural changes. Now that the weather is really bad, I'll probably start making some additions and changes. Check the bottom of the WELCOME SECTION for an offer for free drama materials.

2.5 Order page for sale works.

2.3 The inventory search page is working. 1) Be sure to read the directions carefully..2) Be patient. This is a web page based operation and the lag time is noticable.

January

1.30 Have roughed out "Clearance" page and process. Put Mass of the Children on sale - 42% off!

(1/26/16) Made the menu icon a little more visibe for phone users.

As of about 4:30 today (1/25/16), the initial transformation from the old site to the new one is completed.

Getting ready to make the transition

As of this morning (1/24/16) I'm getting close to launching an updated site. It features a better interface using computers, tablets, and phones. Not perfect or finished, but better. Please excuse any interuptions while I make this transition.

With the snows comes a chance to have a go at updating the web site.

November

Have had a fine fall but it has included playing golf(!), gardening, travel, etc. It's time to put some time into the web site.

September

Can't blame me - the weather has been too nice to stay inside tinkering with the web site.

3.12 Cleaned up navagation section on index page.

3.6 Working on sections of the index so they don't colide with each other.

3.5 Working on index by rewriting template which has .float elements. By doing so, it undoes formating on most other pages.

3.4 Added outline page for "Clearance" section. Pieces will be able to be ordered at a 50% discount only from this routine.

3.3 Using CSS and HTML5, redid navigation routines.

3.1 Rewrote routines for OrderCheck and Inventory making a users interface as guest. User can only perform a "Find" and not be confused with other matters of database construction.

2.28 Added some cosmetic items to some pages

2.20 Redid index, who we are, FAQ using HTML5

2.15 Completed Spry Navagation for all pages.

WELCOME

In a nutshell, we are a discount distributor of choral and handbell music to schools and churches across the country. We have been in business since 1984. Our prodeedure is to take orders, place them with publishers around the country, and ship them using UPS or USPS to our customers. We offer a 20% discount on everything.

From time to time, we distribute sample packets of music which we have found to be exceptional and offer them at a 25% discount for a limited time.

Beginning in early May until near the end of July, we accept summer orders. Customers can pick any music they wish, order it anytime within the summer order season, receive delivery before Labor Day, and enjoy a 25% discount.

We've noticed, since the first of the year, an increase of 6% last year and another 3% this year in UPS charges and where USPS charges for Priority Mail have gone from $5.05 to $6.45, and now to $6.65. We can't do anything about that, except to say these increases are way beyond other increases in the economy.
