I was struck by you wonderful insight and comments about speaking English and the fact that many or most Americans don't speak other languages. You of course may remember that I am from Alabama where it is highly unlikely to hear another language being used outside a high school or college classroom!   Since moving to the west coast, over four years ago, I still find myself in wonder at hearing so many languages being spoken everywhere. I work with a lot of Spanish people and of course many of them are not fluent in English, any more than I am fluent in Spanish, but what is really interesting is when my boss is speaking in Spanish to one of our Mexican colleagues, and then looks at me and tells me something in Spanish, and of course we all die laughing because I am lost. At least now the dumbfounded look on my face is replaced by a big grin! He simply switches to English in mid-sentence! It is a wonderful gift to be reminded every day of one's life that the world is SO much more than the United States of America. I love my magnificent country when she shows her best face, and am ever thankful to have been born here, but I am also thankful, particularly at times of unease like we are going through now, that every day I hear Spanish, Italian, German, French, Arabic, and Russian being spoken sometime, somewhere each day, and in my heart I say a prayer for all the peoples of the world and pray that we may one day become truly united. In spite of all the cruelty, the World and its creatures are indeed Wonderful and Valuable treasures! -- Randy Terry   The Episcopal Church of St. Peter 178 Clinton Street Redwood City, CA 94062 www.stpetersrwc.org

From: "Jeff White" <reedstop@prodigy.net> Date: Wed, 8 Jan 2003 00:59:54 -0600   Hello everyone...   I'm starting a search for a 4' flute stop (medium to small scale, 61 = notes) and a 4' reed stop (1-32 only, for pedal).
