They don't actually cause me a problem, but I can tell that they are harder to listen to.   Richard

I look forward to seeing all of you who will be there. Those of you who can't make it, look for my highlights posting in a few weeks. I think there will be many highlights at this years OHS. I'll be moving back to Tallahassee after the convention so wish me luck on both trips!   Take care all!   Sincerely,   Will Scarboro 1996 OHS E. Power Biggs Fellow

They've been likened to flying shards of glass.

(back) Subject: Tallahassee From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Tue, 15 Aug 2000 20:21:36 -0700   I LOVE Tallahassee! It's BEE-U-TI-FUL! We used to go swimming in Blue Sink (I think it was called). I was Dr. Beard's assistant at First Pres in high school, on the OLD two-manual Skinner that came before the three-manual Skinner that came before whatever that great tractor is now in the back of the church; and the FOUR-manual Skinner in Oppermann Hall was still playing as well. The little organ in the chapel of Ruge Hall was new; the Baptists had a NASTY Blow-Holer; the Episcopalians downtown had an OLD Estey that would shock you when you changed stops; we restored their tower chimes so they played again; the Methodists had a TINY little Austin in a swallow's nest above the communion table; I think the Catholics had a Wicks (?), or maybe it was an electronic (hard to tell the difference??!!).   Fond memories of Tallahassee ...   Cheers,   Bud   "Paul F.

There are lots of '40s Allens and Hammonds and anything else you can imagine still = playing out there.   DeserTBoB
