They'd = simply become accustomed to framing their prose with fingers rather than with tongue.   Result: after a few years, lease expires, and law firm now looks for = space in a tall skinny building (maybe eight or nine floors or more), because ratio of lawyers to support folk has shifted, and there's more need for windowed offices and less for that army in the center of the core of the building. So Manhattan changes (over a generation) from a place with lots of big fat buildings to a place with tall skinny buildings.   Alan   > From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> > Reply-To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> > Date: Wed, 14 Feb 2001 22:41:51 -0600 > To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> > Subject: Re: Time management > > I agree with Bud - every organist and every lawyer (hey, every college > student) should know how to type and basic word processing skills.

(back) Subject: NYC Presidents' Day Conference x-post From: "Jonathan B. Hall" <jonahall@indiana.edu> Date: Thu, 15 Feb 2001 15:41:06 -0500 (EST)   Greetings--   I hope everyone within a Pony Express ride of New York City is aware of next Monday's "President's Day Conference," an all-day event produced by the New York City Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.   The Church of the Epiphany, 1393 York Avenue (at East 74th St.) is very proud to be hosting this event. The church is easy to get to. One can take the No. 6 train to the 77th and Lexington stop and walk east to York Avenue then south to 74th St. Or one could take the M31 bus across 57th St. and up Sutton Place, which become York Avenue. Or one could hop into a taxi...but however you get there, try to come! The day promises to be wonderful. This event was to have featured Marie-Claire Alain, who was to speak on her brother's music and also to have performed at St. Ignatius Loyola on the famous Mander organ.   Alas, as Mme. Alain has injured herself and cannot travel, alternative programs have been arranged. David Higgs will play at St. Ignatius and Thomas Chase will present a lecture, "Reassessing Marcel Dupre," in lieu of the intended presentation on Jehan Alain.   Mme. Alain will be there in more than spirit, though; she has mailed off to Dean Stephen Hamilton the themes on which Dr. Justin Bischof will be improvising at his afternoon recital.   The full program can be accessed on the NYC AGO website, which is, appropriate, www. NYCAGO.org.   For more information on The Church of the Epiphany, visit www.epiphanynyc.org or call 212-737-2720.   Best regards,       Jonathan B. Hall Organist/Choirmaster The Church of the Epiphany

I used to have to dictate word for word, with punctuation and spelling, to a secretary - I can type faster than most of them.   This skill has worked well in service at the church - word processing for bulletins and recital programs and program notes, for organ composition, pointing psalms, financial and other reports, thank-yous to contributors, the list goes on.
