The Christmas tour is in full swing! The shows have gone swimmingly. Certain locations are sold out. I found one of the only remaining Boba Fett action figures left in the U.S. What's with Walgreens suddenly selling a cool toy??? More importantly, a warm front is on the way in the Midwest. So put those coats away next week and don a Christmas sweater with me. Or a Christmas suit!?! (Just saw a news article from England about this fantastic idea!!!). Let us know your holiday plans when we meet at shows? I will quit fighting with ladders...34' ladders (ha!)... if you promise to stay healthy. And we'll all sing "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" at the top of our lungs.
Holiday Tour 2014
Those of you that don't get our e-letter, or have it casually placed in your spam folder, may have missed some of the following information...
We’re writing to let you know of a great charity that we’re raising money for this year, Feed My Starving Children. This great organization has a simple approach - hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children and adults - and they ship these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. We were also excited to know that a single meal costs only 22 cents to produce and 92 percent of total donations goes directly toward the food program.
Knowing how great TSF fans have been at supporting our efforts in the past, we knew this was going to be a breeze! If we got each of you to donate $1 (not even the cost of a cup of coffee) - that’s four and a half meals each - multiplied by everyone that receives this email...well let’s just say we’ll be well over 2 million meals! Can you imagine that? For $80, FMSC is able to provide a single child food for an entire year!
We want to track all donations from our fans, so that we can give you a grand total at the end as well as updates along the way (Please note “Tonic Sol-fa” on all your donations).
Donations can be made directly at the FMSC website if you’re using a credit card. (Click box in the sections marked “Additional Information." Then use the drop-down box marked “What prompted you to give today?” and select Tonic Sol-fa.)

(Be sure to include Tonic Sol-fa in the memo line.)
Thanks for your help in getting food to those in need!

Know what I like about March?
In my mind, it's the "transition" month. You know, that month that bridges the gap between winter and spring, thus harkening a new beginning! And who doesn't like a new beginning? Besides people who like their normal beginning, I mean. But sometimes they might like new middles or endings, right? Mayhaps.
What I'm really trying to say is that good times are on the way!!! Spring turns into summer soon enough, and that means it's time to bring out the flip flops and board shorts (no socks, Mark), and get into the summer shows!
But, before we do that, we must get through April and May (both good months in their own right), and in these months we have some fun shows that ya'll should attend. Seriously folks, check out our calendar, and make these a priority! I know I'm going!
See you there? No. See you there. What? See you there! So there!!!!
