(back) Subject: Christmas carol game From: Myosotis51 <Myosotis51@aol.com> Date: Fri, 19 Dec 1997 08:41:01 EST   Thought this would be fun for all those holiday parties and recitals:   << From: Laugh-A-Lot! <laughalot-owner@graceweb.org> Another good one for that Christmas party....=BR= These are the names of well-known Christmas songs, rewritten in PC (pretty convoluted). If you like puzzles, try to decipher them. If not, just get a chuckle from matching up the translations! Example: Heavenly beings at extreme altitudes my associates and I perceived auditory stimulus emanating from. Translation: "Angels we have heard on high" 1. Sir Lancelot with severe laryngitis 2. Boulder of the tinkling metal spheres 3. Vehicular homicide was committed on Dad's mom by a precipitous darling 4. Wanted in late December: top forward incisors 5. The apartment of two psychiatrists 6. The lad is a diminutive percussionist 7. I exclaim, a member of the round table with missing areas 8. Decorate the entryway s 9. Cup-shaped instruments fashioned of a whitish metallic element 10. Oh small Israel urban center 11. Far off in a hay bin 12. Kong, Lear, and Nat Cole ...that's us! 13. Duodecimal enumeration of the passage of the yuletide season 14. Leave and broadcast from an elevation 15. Our fervent hope is that you thoroughly enjoy your yuletide season 16. Listen, the winged heavenly messengers are proclaiming tunefully 17. As the guardians of the woolly animals protected their charges in the dark hours 18. I beheld a trio of nautical vessels moving in this direction 19. Jubilation to the entire terrestrial globe 20. Do you perceive the same vibrations which stimulate my auditory sense organ? 21. A joyful song of reverence relative to hollow metallic vessels which vibrate and bring forth a ringing sound when struck 22. Parent was observed osculating a red-coated unshaven teamster 23. May the Deity bestow an absence of fatigue to mild male humans 24. Rose-colored uncouth dolf is aware of the nature of precipitation, darling. (Tricky) Translations: 1. Silent Night 2. Jingle Bell Rock 3. Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer 4. All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth 5. Nutcracker Suite 6. The Little Drummer Boy 7. Oh, Holy Night 8. Deck the Halls 9. Silver Bells 10. O Little Town of Bethlehem 11. Away in a Manger 12. We Three Kings 13. 12 Days of Christmas 14. Go Tell It On the Mountain 15. We Wish You A Merry Christmas 16. Hark the Herald Angels Sing 17. As Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night 18. I Saw 3 Ships on Christmas Day 19. Joy to the World 20. Do You Hear What I Hear 21. The Bells of Christmas Are Ringing 22. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus 23. God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen 24. Rudolph (rude) the Red Nosed Reindeer (knows rain, dear) >>  
(back) Subject: Regent Theatre 4/36 enqiry on behalf of Julian Arnold From: "Darren Everitt" <DEVERITT@BIGPOND.COM> Date: Sat, 20 Dec 1997 01:01:24 +1100   32 foot diaphone and missing pipe queries posted on behalf Julian Arnold Regent theatre Melbourne Wurlitzer project co-ordinator     Whilst speaking to Julian I suggested we put a note on pipe chat re some problems with the 32 foot diaphones at the Regent Theatre Melbourne, he has allready made three private enquiries but has not yet received an answer so maybe someone out there can help.The problem is as follows. The 32 foot diaphones on the Regent Theatre Melbourne Wurlitzer (ex SFO Granada/Paramount) were originally voiced on 25" pressure. They are currently on 27" pressure. There are no tuning slides as on the more recent models,so the pipe must be tuned on the beater.   Some pipes speak too softly, and the only way to get them into tune is to leave the adjusting nut on the stud loose. We know this is not right, but rather than spend many hours experimenting can someone, please advise the correct specifications for adjustments, angle of the beater, striking pad etc. A specification of the beater pad would help also.   One other problem we have is a missing pipe we are looking for TOP A# Tuba Horn reed pipe 15" pressure. Must be Wurlitzer. It is the top reed before the Rank goes into flue pipes.     If any one has any suggestions please either post to Pipechat or Email me Privately DEVERITT@bigpond.com thanks Darren

(back) Subject: Re: Hammonds From: bill.datasound@juno.com (Bill Ziegler) Date: Fri, 5 Dec 1997 17:35:01 -0500   Hi:   In that organ with the LSI chips in it, I would NOT advise buying it. The chips are getting very hard to get and I know sometime in the future they won't be available. Keep looking for the old B or C series instruments.   Lots of luck!   Bill Ziegler, Owner Datasound   On Mon, 17 Nov 1997 10:15:48 -0600 "Richard B.
