There are three ways to order:

The simplest way: go directly to PayPal.
Send $39.95 plus $5 shipping via PayPal. My PayPal ID hicklerbanjo@gmail.com.

I accept money orders.
Send a money order for $44.95 to the address listed on the Contact/About tab.

You can order and pay via the Shopping Cart on this website.
I apologize for this nonsense, but my web host does not have a very sophisticated shopping cart. Follow these instructions carefully or you will end up paying more than you have to:

  1. Click this link.
  2. Click the Add To Cart button.
  3. In the View Cart screen enter "DVD" in the box marked "If applicable, enter a Promotional Code".
  4. Update the Cart. The updated price will be $7 lower.
  5. When you get to the shipping screen, choose Flat Rate Domestic Shipping $12.

The result is you end up paying the the same total as $39.95 plus $5 for shipping. If you are ordering multiple items, just choose the cheapest option or the option that suits you best.
