Holland is more than old paintings and organs.   The "oranges and lemmens" was a play on words, and I am aware that the House of Orange refers to the royal family. Lemons refers to.....Oh! Never mind!   Lemmens (the celebrated concert organist) was from Belgium of course.   Limburg Province....foothills of the Ardennes....it is possible to be in three countries at the same time. Limburg has hills.   We have now gone completely off topic with all this Dutch nonsense, so I hope it will stop here.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK   --- John Vanderlee <jovanderlee@vassar.edu> wrote: > > > > The Ardennnes are part of Belgium , NOT Holland.... > > "boring" with more significant pipe organs and > museums per square > mile? culturally in the foreground? where you could > spend a month in > Amsterdam and still not have seen all?? > > > >They even call canals "Dykes". > No "Dikes" which is the earth berm used to hold back > water> > > >If you ask me, the Netherlands is all "Oranges" and > >"Lemmens". > > > The "House of Orange" refers to the royal family. > > please explain "Lemmens" > > Now.... since I note "UK" shall we start on that? > now there's fertile > territory.. ;-) >     __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

(back) Subject: Re: Funeralitis From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Fri, 10 Jan 2003 00:06:31 +0000 (GMT)   Hello,   Funerals are always a sharp reminder of our own mortality, but to turn a phrase, "In the midst of death we are in life".   I do not find funerals depressing at all. They should be a celebration as well as an act of rememberance....more so for those of a Christian disposition.   Our choice of organ music should reflect the sorrow, the hope AND the celebration.   Grief makes us human, and it is only when we no longer feel anything at all that the point of living is lost.   Those who have lost loved ones...especially children, know that joy eventually returns. In that situation, we should give thanks for the privilege of knowing the deceased, and then hold their memory dear.   The best cure for depression is to go out and care. I was depressed after a bereavment and dreaded Christmas. In the event, it turned out wonderfully when Jewish friends invited me to join them working in a Soup Kitchen for the homeless! Seldom have I felt more alive.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK       __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

(back) Subject: RE: Pipe Chamber Paint From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Thu, 9 Jan 2003 18:30:06 -0600   I have been told that there is a type of wallpaper that will block sound from bleeding, but cannot tell you any details. We had that problem at the courthouse, but maintenance never followed through on the solution.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of John Jarvis   A church that I play for occasionally wants to cut the sound bleeding from the back of the pipe chamber into the rooms behind it. I convinced them to hold off stuffing the chamber with insulation until I can come up with a better solution. I recall hearing about some special paint that should be used inside of the pipe chambers such that the walls are completely sealed. =A0The guys at the local paint stores were not = helpful =96 even the auto paint store.=A0 Does anyone have any info that they = can pass along?=A0=20
