It had diamonds that fell to earth in a meteor shower that the U.K, tabloid Press, have equated to the Bush Administrations' ignorence of pipe organs as they become 'collateral damage'. Here in the U.S.. the 'remember Pearl Harbor' media attempt rings very hollow regarding "the new conservative bellicosity" "We won, JUST BOMB 'em!"   What's our President's or your Prime Minister's favorite Pipe Organ?   It does sound a like lot like 'Lucy'.. where decisionmakers are functioning in some never-never-land of their own elite parallel universe.   Stan   Colin Mitchell wrote: > > Hello, > > Paul Macartney insists that "Lucy in the sky with > diamonds" (LSD) originated from his tiny daughter, who > came home with a painting. > > "What is it?" > > "It's lucy, in the sky, with diamonds", she replied. > > OF COURSE I believe him! > > Regards, > > Colin Mitchell UK

In actuality, I think it's very important to discuss this situation openly as the RC scandal started with ONE priest and has now elevated to an estimated 1,400 that are **thus far** being scrutinized by law enforcement and prosecutors around the country.   Discussing the obligations and morals of the job as well as reminding ourselves and each other what you can and can not do with congregants, choir members and students is a good start at helping each other and ourselves to avoid being dragged into the RC scandal or other scandals.   Marika   quilisma@socal.rr.com wrote:   >Ummm ... have to disagree there.

He demanded an Orange, whereupon the waiter brought him an orange drink.   "No.....a whole orange!" He roared, as the waiter scurried away to find one.   Returning with the whole orange, the famous pianist proceeded to play a Chopin Polonaise (?) (Possibly the Fantasy Impromptu?), using a very florid right hand, but with his left hand smashing the orange into the keys.....it was note perfect apprently, but the juice didn't do the Steinway much good!   Organists are less spectacular, more sober and better behaved broadly speaking, but I do know a true story about an organist, a pedal board and a pumpkin!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK   --- Mike Gettelman <mike3247@earthlink.net> wrote: >     > I once heard Felix Hell play the piano with his > nose   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

He has entertained audiences by using his elbows to push stops in before today.   For my part, in a moment of desperation, I once pushed a stop in with my right foot when I could think of no other way.   Head-butting stops is quite common.   But is there a way of getting stops OUT which does not involve thumb/toe pistons, general crescendo or the clawing fingers?   Has anyone used their teeth?   Is this possible, or does it require the sort of protruding teeth which could eat a carrot through a wire fence?   More to the point, has anyone lost their false teeth in the process?   We need to know!   :)   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK >   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

She reported about one organ she visited that had a drawstop with no name specified.
