The use of these organs began with the missionaries and has culminated with native born composers who have enriched the organ music literature with works which exemplify that Nigerian born composers have taken the use of the organ many steps farther, creating works which rival their European and American colleagues."   (from a Google search of "Nigeria + pipe organs")     Cheers,     Bud

Keith Morgan" <aeolian_skinner@yahoo.com> Date: Sat, 1 Mar 2003 23:20:21 -0800 (PST)   Speaking of old biddies, in the 1960s, when I just got my BM and took a church job, I went to a church that had one of those who wanted to keep the church just like grandma had it. When you walked in the church, it was like stepping back in time 50 years.   In the early 1900s, this old girl was in a very wealthy family who owned a chain of drug stores. When the men of the family died, this old biddy and her sister didn't know anything about running a business, so they sold the drug stores, and lived off the principal -- not the interest. In the following years, she ruled that church with an iron hand for 50 years. In the meantime, her vast fortune had dwindled to almost nothing. The men of the administrative board put up with her because they thought that they would come into a pile of money when she croaked, but when she did and the estate was settled, the church got $500 out of it.   One night, as I was leaving after practicing, the meeting of the administrative board broke up, and I heard one of them say "Just think. We put up with that old bitch for 50 years, and all we get out of it is a lousy $500."   After ROTFLMAO, I said, "Don't spend it all in one place!"   Ain't the religion business fun?!!!!!!   D.
