2. Getting error messages?  It's probably due to one of two problems:

a. You may have an old (pre-6.0) version of Real Player.  If so, click here for the music.  The quality's not as great as with the new spiffy version of Real Player, but at least you'll be able to hear it.

b. You may not have any version of Real Player on your system.  If this is the case, click here to go to a site where you can download a free version.  There are versions for Macs and PC's .  When you get there, scroll down to the bottom of the page for the links to the free downloads.  I would recommend choosing the free version 7.0, since the free version of 8.0 is a beta version.

3. Music stalling a lot while the pictures are loading?  This may happen if you have a slow internet connection.  If there is a lot of stalling and it's driving you nuts, try one of the following:
a. Stop the music and follow along these pages without it, letting all the pictures load fully.  Then come back here, re-start the music, and go through these pages again.  The pictures should load faster the second time around, so the music should play with little if any stalling.
b. Go back to the party page and follow the link for the "music and lyrics only" version.  Then come back here later to see the pictures.
4.  Remember, it may take a while for the music to load.
