*fanfare*

A suprising number of you message me asking "what does *fanfare* mean?" A fanfare is a short musical flourish, often played (loudly) on trumpets and other brass instruments. They are often used as heralds or greetings, such as at the arrival of royalty. American Heritage Dictionary also lists it as meaning "a spectacular public display", which is kind of how I like to think of trmptman *smile*
