It was professionally packed and stored somewhere on an UPPER floor of one of the building in the complex.   I think I saw something recently that part of the organ, don't know which part(s) are going into a church somewhere in Eastern Tennessee and that the rebuilding is being done by the Milnar Organ Co. I keep meaning to check that out but haven't had the time.   David

From: <Tspiggle@aol.com> Date: Wed, 29 May 2002 20:58:25 EDT   Scott:   I just happen to be holding in my hands the Spring 2002 newsletter of the Milnar Organ Co. of Eagleville, TN. They are currently restoring Kimball Organ opus 7035 built in 1929 for Cook Convention Center in Memphis. The restored organ will go into the new 1000 seat sanctuary of Bartlett United =   Methodist Church. As you are well aware, Bartlett is a suburb of Memphis.   The console will be solid state. The newsletter mentions that the organ = was dismantled and stored by others. There are no blueprints so Milnar is = having "fun" trying to figure out how everything goes back together.   Tom

(back) Subject: Food and organ CDs From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Wed, 29 May 2002 20:54:39 -0500   Well, I must tell you that my leave-taking at St. A's has awakened my cooking side. It's so nice to leave a hard day's work and not have to go to the church for a couple hours, to worry about a bulletin and what hymns and music I'm going to play. I can actually play with the grandkittens and water my flowers and mow my grass. And I have not managed to escape organ music - my friend's CDs have beguiled me and made me want to learn new music!   Yesterday evening I came home from a full day of court out of town, and decided that we had gone without dinner (that's supper in the South) long enough. I took 4 beautifully lean smoked pork chops and placed them in a small roasting pan sprayed with cooking spray. Then I placed a layer of baby carrots sliced in half lengthwise, sliced potatoes, and sliced Vidalia onions (about 1/8 inch or so, but who's measuring?). Then I topped this with homemade dried dill and store-bought oregano, celery salt and black pepper. Then I poured a cup, more or less, of chicken broth on top, stuck it in a 375 degree oven for about 50 minutes or until the carrots were fork-tender. This was served with a 1999 Beringer's Sauvignon Blanc and "The Art of Virgil Fox". Only half a bottle was consumed, to prevent its being a night of dancing on the front lawn and singing Van Morrison's "Moondance".   This evening after my mother's friend's graveside service in the boiling sun, I prepared the mother cat's pet taxi for her trip to the vet tomorrow for the big "S". I boiled a package of colored rotini until fork-tender. While it was cooking, I saut=E9ed about 1/3 cup of light olive oil, a touch of butter, 3 or 4 tablespoons of minced garlic, and perhaps a couple pounds of baby shrimp. Draining the pasta, I added the shrimp mixture and perhaps a 1/2 cup of finely grated parmesan cheese and stirred well. This was served with the rest of the Sauvignon Blanc and "The Bach Family", music by a bunch of Johanns. I kept thinking, "I want to learn that one," during each selection.   The only way to improve on these meals would have been to serve fresh steamed asparagus with fresh squeezed lemon, and to have a home organ, but alas, neither was available. =20   I feel a few stupid organic questions coming on.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com
