The fact that your = have two different ways of labeling the pipes, suggests that you may be dealing with pipes made by two different organ companies. If this is the case, = they probably originally came from more than one mixture on more than one = organ, and you may have considerable difficulty in establishing what the configuration of the mixture you are dealing with may have been. Perhaps = in this case the best you can do is to try to figure out the pitches -- which pipes seem to belong to a 2' or 1.1/3' or 1' or whatever rank -- and then attempt to arrange them with breaks into a mixture that will work for the context you have in mind to use it for.   John Speller

On Christmas eve she might get a piece of jewelry to wear to church. But the fun stuff happens on Epiphany!   A few years, though, we did the 12 days of Christmas -- every day opening a gift (could be serious or silly, but always with a price limit).   This year it's Epiphany. We fully intend to enjoy all our special liturgies and music, without the hussle and bustle of holiday shopping. Holyday stuff is more important, and to us, more fun!   The sales after Christmas help, too....   Steve   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D     __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Yahoo!

However in my =   family it was not, and I am speaking of my 93 year old mother who is not about to change now. But that's not to say that I can't change the = tradition with my kids and grandkids. They will just have 2 Christmas gift giving = and getting times. Strange how we go along with the crowd and not remember = the actual tradition. At least our church now has replaced the Christmas Tree =   with the Advent Wreath. And I don't decorate with anything other than religious remembrances.
