Based upon an announcement of future availability, one could decide whether or not to buy a copy of a particular work / volume. Would you consider buying a subscription to music by some composer?   2 a) Would you consider buying a music CD-ROM (as above) on a subscription basis?

I prefer a more natural means of getting the potassium in my system. Especially a banana milk shake ( bananas and = whole milk {Potassium & Calcium}) with no added sugar (definitely NO ice cream)...ok, maybe a small amount of sugar, to taste.   The OTC potassium tablets can probably do the same thing, but, be careful with that stuff!!! Test it out before you decide on using it....start = with low doses.   The Benadryl, I don't use, cause it makes me too drowsy...and = "slow"...but, for things that don't require much physical activity (like speaking), it = can help keep your hands from shaking as you turn pages of notes....it just depends on how bad your "jitters" are.   And, there are some (as mentioned) prescribed medications that can help = with the anxiety, but, I haven't used any of them, so I can't personally recommend them.         ----- Original Message ----- From: Shirley <pnst@snip.net> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Friday, October 29, 1999 10:39 PM Subject: Re: performance anxiety     > Mark Reeves stated: > > Eating bananas certainly can't hurt.
