Audio Tapes from recent conference


Posted by Shirley-Arkansas-USA , Aug 31,2001,21:56   Archive
Just wanted to let everyone know that my audio tapes that I ordered from Walter Mason while at the conference arrived at my home yesterday. I haven't listened to them yet, but intend to when time permits. So, they are available people. If you couldn't attend the conference, you can have the vast majority of it on audio tape for $35. They are well worth the expense.

All you have to do is send a check for $35 made out to Walter Mason at 2400 West Durston Road #55
Bozeman, Montana
59718

Walter is the Area Representative for Western Montana.

I'd like to hear some feedback from someone who gets the tapes and listens to them. I purchased them the first year that I developed BEB and I couldn't attend the conference and they were a big help to me. Just to lay there with my eyes closed (that's about all I could do at the time) and listen to these doctors talk about my disorder and the research that was going on and hearing the doctor's question and answer panels. People asking the same questions that I had and being answered by a doctor. Even the sense of humor and compassion that I heard on the tapes was so helpful to me. I remember crying as I listened to parts of them. They made me feel less helpless and alone.

Shirley in AR. who will continue to nag about the audio tapes as I believe that they are very important. Yet another thing that I don't receive a commission on. Oh, well. Knowledge helps to empower you and there is a great deal of knowledge on these tapes.

They are audio tapes so they would work in any cassette player. They would not work in your VCR. They do also make vidio tapes of the conference that you can purchase and use in your VCR but they are more expensive and I have never purchased them. I'm sure that they are good, also. They will probably publish information about both kinds in the upcoming newsletter.

I'll try to do a visual later for you.

okay, good. 2 days after i postponed my appt. i thought i had made a huge mistake; my eyes were so bad during the buildup of the rainstorms we are currently having. once it did start to rain and the temperature has dropped , my eyes have been pretty good. i am sitting here incredulous over this. i have had to take the celebrex almost every day for the past month and am wondering if this is partially responsible . i mean , i'm amazed!

Video tapes of the conference will not be available this year and they were not available last year either. The person who used to do them can't do it anymore. The audio tapes are a good idea though.

Thanks Nilda, for setting the record straight. I guess what I had seen for sell were the 99 conference video tapes. My mistake. Did they sell very well? I wonder, too, how many audio tapes are sold each year. I may have to email Walter and ask him. I'm just curious about these things.

Thanks again Nilda. Your husband sure worked hard at the conference this year but he did seem to be enjoying himself. Tell him "thanks". And a big thanks to you to for your fundraising.

Hi Shirley
Apparently the video tapes didn't sell very well but that's not why they're not being done any more. Ron did enjoy working at the registration desk and chatting with everyone. I don't know what I would have done if he hadn't gone. I was too busy running around begging for money.

And what a fine job of begging you did! You should be commended for your fundraising talents. Ron did seem to be having a good time and didn't seem to mind to badly that I called him Mr. Nilda.

Shirley, you receive the best commission you can get and that is the knowledge that you have done something good for a fellow human being. Money is only that. It cannot buy the feeling one gets from helping another human being. God bless you for helping others. You commissions are mounting up. Hopefully it will be a long time before you cash them in but it will be nice to have that big bankroll in the sky when your time comes...Alan.

P.S. You lost a few bucks when you used to pick on me but I think that you have more than made that back..

Thank you for saying such nice things. I do get a lot of satisfaction from at least trying to help others.

Yes, and since I haven't been picking on you, Virginia has been taking up the slack. She seems to be handling it ok but don't you think that I should at least occasionally pick on you so as to give her a little break? I guess that might be considered back-sliding, though.
