They never cost more than $20. One of these should do nicely for your pedalboard. Don't forget to buy some self-adhesive cord/cable organizers to get the cord out your way.   Happy hunting!   -----Original Message----- From: DudelK@aol.com <DudelK@aol.com> To: pipechat@pipechat.org <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Friday, December 11, 1998 11:34 PM Subject: Re: I don't see the light     >Because the music rack on my recently acquired Rodgers sits pretty high, I >wound up getting a halogen desk lamp at Office Depot.

Either fluorescent or low-voltage, so heat isn't a problem. Mounted on the underside of the console, it should do a good job.   Vicki Ceruti

Ignoring the fact that you're not supposed to look ;-), your next Depot should be Home Depot. An 18" fluorecent shoplight is basically what is on the organ at church. It is working again and all I had to do was change the ballast. It was very easy and the neighborhood was only dark for about an hour!! hehehe   ........................bruce cornely........................ o o o o ______________ o o o o d o g s ______________ o o h o o a o o ______________ o o p s   ............. cremona84000@webtv.net ............     Heaven goes by favor.

I was looking for my copy, and evidently it's been deleted. If someone has those, could you please send them to me? My choral director asked me to try to find them for him, and I'd like to have it myself as well.   Thanks,   -Stephen   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

The chef whom ye seek shall certainly send you a sample, even by messenger with an oven mitt (which ye fit right in); Behold! Even buns!" saith the Lord of Toast.   But who may abide the bray of his strumming. and who shall stand when he premiereth? For he has liked to get minors sired.   Chorus For he shall surely buy, For he shall surely buy,--a ton of Levi`s; That he may offer unto the horde an offering of "righteous" dress.   Recit. and Air with Chorus (Alto) Behold! A sturgeon shall bite Steve, and take his gun, and shall hold a flame to Samuel. Cod with us.   O thou, that sellest good siding to Brian, Get thee up unto the accountants...   Recit. (Soprano) There were shepherds, imbibing in the fields, drinking scotch over the rocks by night. And lo! the urge to smorgasbord came upon them and a glorious aroma round about them; they thought they had it made. But the waiter said unto them, "Here? Not! for behold, we`re out of smoked salmon and cream cheese. Take your spree to those people: For you will find across the way, in the Cafe' of David, A flavor which is spiced--galore!"   Chorus His yolk is over easy, his breakfast is "lite."   Chorus All we, asleep, still have to play; we have yearned, every one for his own pay.   Air (Contralto) Thou art gone onstage high, thou art gone onstage high! Thou hast held the Cabernet captive, and enough gin for ten, Yea, even for thine enemas! Front row, poor sods, thou fell among them!   Air (Tenor) Thou shalt fake them with their rotten high runs, Thou shalt thrash them, those pieces, while thy daughters wrestle.   Chorus The Lord saved the herd: Great was the humping among the creatures.   Air (Soprano) How beautiful is the seat of him that teaches the sophomores in Greece, And fits so tightly in good jeans..   Chorus Since by van came Beth, by Van came also the headboard section of the bed. But has she had some more pie? Even just one slice, with all that stuff inside!   Air (Bass) The crumpet shall brown, and the bread shall be raised--it smells wonderful!   Duet (Contralto and Tenor) Oh Beth, where is thy thing? Oh Dave, where is thy d*ck for me? The thing of Beth is thin, and the length of his is quite long.   Chorus But thanks, thanks be to Todd, Who playeth us the timpani through our long winter nights.   Chorus Honolulu! For I would rather be on vacation! The thing about this world is the sun; Get me a seat on board tomorrow`s flight, tomorrow`s flight, And catch those rays for ever and ever. Fling of flings, and scores of whores, Honolulu!   --compiled by G.T. for the December 1993 _Philharmonia Baroque Musician_, the newsletter of Philharmonia Baroque players.
