I need a second unit (no driver needed) since adding a second reservoir. If so, please advise offlist. Thanks.       _________________________________________________________________ Chat with friends online, try MSN Messenger: http://messenger.msn.com    
(back) Subject: OFF-TOPIC: our new puppy (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Tue, 22 Jan 2002 08:10:39 -0800   He has a very sad story ... his owner died suddenly, and it was two weeks before anyone found him.   He=92s obvious been abused at some point ... he=92s very shy and skittish ... hides under furniture at the slightest noise. I have to get down on the floor and hand-feed him to get him to eat. He nearly starved to death before he was found, and he=92s still a couple of pounds underweight. He hasn't made a SOUND yet ... no barking, no NOTHING.   He=92ll be OK ... both Baron and Princess (the Sheltie that preceded Baron) had been abused before we adopted them, and they came out of it eventually. We just have to be careful not to make any sudden moves or loud noises.   He=92s beautiful ... classic Sheltie tri-color. He prances like a little race- horse. Sheltie Rescue said they think he comes from high-class show-dog / breeding stock.   His name is still up in the air ... he was named =93Happy=94, which was f= ine   with me, but Burgie said he didn=92t seem to answer to it ... they were a= t   Burgie=92s mom=92s house for the weekend ... so he started calling him =93King=94 .... Princess-Baron-King being a logical progression. I like =93Prince=94 better; but I find myself calling him =93Sweetie=94, so that=92ll probably stick (grin).   The cats are supremely bored by him, except that Tigger won=92t let him sleep on the foot of my bed ... that=92s Tigger=92s bed (grin). For his part, he doesn't seem to pay much attention to them. I think Sheltie Rescue told Burgie he was accustomed to being around cats.   After I let him out this morning, I had to make friends with him all over again, so I got down on the floor and brushed him and talked to him for awhile. I got him to eat a little, but then I sneezed and he took off and hid under the desk. But he knows there=92s food in my room, so he=92ll be back (grin).   Cheers,   Bud

If they want to pee on your furniture, they will. Felines, if they have a propensity to scratch   Will   Make friends with puppy and try to get him out of the room. Put his food dish in a 'public place' in your home to facilitate him becoming a more sociable puppy.   I hope that the pup will be a treasured family member..   ...a favor that I ask of you   ...Don't name him "Stan"   I'm still housebroken.     Love, from Stan & Jasmine the Cat

I noticed an errant comma in the first line of the worship section. Also, the commentary uses the time abbreviations "am" = and "pm" but the worship schedule uses periods after each letter. Maybe you = can edit these pieces.   Peter   -----Original Message----- From: Alan Freed [mailto:parishadmin@stlukesnyc.org] Sent: Monday, January 21, 2002 11:10 AM To: PipeChat Subject: New website at Saint Luke's, Manhattan     It's a pleasure for me to announce the inauguration of Saint Luke's new website.   www.stlukesnyc.org   As you can see, it's a real .org site rather than the previous rough draft of the past year or so. There are plenty of music pages featuring the organ, cantor, choir, etc. I can recommend him strongly for anyone who's needing someone in that capacity; his name, on request offlist. He also did all the photography, not just the keyboard work.   Alan     "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"
