There were a lot of Rohr Shalmei's placed at 4' for the same useless purpose. When I look back at this particular era, I really have to scratch my poor old head, and say, "what the heck were they thinking?"   Ron's remark is of interest because I bet that the same happened half a century ago when an orgler looked back at Hope-Jones, E.M. Skinner, and = the 'orchestral organ' concept. I quote from Wolfgang Adelung's organ treatise (written 1954; re-edited 1971): "Vox Coelestis (...) Unda Maris (...) = today these beating stops are rather seldom in use because of their often = sweetish sound. Of much more advantage are the beating Gemshorn and Flute Celeste". And going further back in history we find Bonavia-Hunt (1923) calling the Cornet "an obsolete mixture stop formed of large-scaled fluty-toned pipes (...) the inclusion of this stop is really inconsistent with its aim, = which is to deal with the stops of the modern organ only".   History pendulum swinging back and forth!   Cheers Andres =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

Bush better pay up.   Big Bear and Forest Falls have been evacuated.   They're now saying MID-November for CONTAINMENT. That means air quality will remain HORRENDOUS for WEEKS.   The aircraft carrier Stennis has turned around and is returning to port here. All Navy personnel aboard whose families are affected will be given emergency leave.   Downtown Julian, at least, is still there, as far as I can tell from the news broadcast. 300 homes in outlying areas destroyed. The fire is right at Old Julian ... firefighters are making a stand.   Communications are disrupted because of the solar flare. Not helpful.   Winds up to 40 mph predicted for tomorrow.   TV is irritating ... as with all major disasters, they've long since run out of anything to SAY, beyond announcing evacuations, road closings, contaminated water alerts, new evacuation centers, etc.   Fr. Joe (St. Vincent de Paul) is collecting sandwich meat and GatorAde for the firefighters.   Channel Six is trying to get one of their reporters out of the Inspiration Point area.   Schools are now shut down for the rest of the week, at least.   I'm seeing things like cast-iron ash removal doors on chimneys MELTED.   That seems to be it, for now ...       Bud

We both are enjoying the discussion of "The Bean on the chatlist and want to respond with our thoughts.   Good coffee ("real" coffee as opposed to Folgers et al) is any one of the coffees produced by the Arabica Bean - The difference in taste and caffeine level is a matter of where it is grown... African beans like an Ethiopian or Kenyan tend to be earthy, and range in caffeine content from 0.13% to about 0.25%... Our favorite is Ethiopian Yargacheffe (happens to be the 0.13% one... we just drink more!).   Central and South American coffees are lighter, brighter, and have less "bouquet" and also tend to range higher in caffeine: 0.22% - 0.30% or so... Colombian Supremo is well marketed (Thank you, Juan Valdez) but is the least flavorful with the most bland characteristics. Most "flavored" coffees are done with Colombian because it doesn't present anything unique that might interfere with the chocolate-hazelnut-raspberry-tirimisu flavor additions (we use natural extracts and real nuts and stuff). Personally, we hate flavored coffees, but it is also what we sell the most... sigh...   If you want the biggest 'jolt' you need to go with an Indonesian coffee: Java (an estate coffee only) or Sumatra Mandheling or a Celebes Kalosi. These are in the 0.30% to 0.45% range! They are also just exquisite coffees with rich deep flavor, high level of bouquet, smooth (no floating horseshoes here) and very unique characteristics. They also cost too much (unless you own the shoppe!) but are definitely in a class by themselves!   Folgers, Maxwell House, and the other canned store brands are NOT Arabica beans - they are Robustas which are harsh (they will remove corrosion on your console's contacts and float your horseshoes), vile in their strength (caffeine runs around 0.60% - 0.95%!), and stale...stale...stale.... They are often 1-3 years old since their roasting! Eeeewwww!   While you might think that owning a coffee shoppe might solve an organist's caffeine needs, it creates its own pitfalls... Should I arrive at church on Sunday morning without 2 airpots full of something good, I run the risk of my own martyrdom. And staff meetings... council meetings... tete a tete meetings with the boss... etc.   I had to put the brakes on supplying the post-mass coffee hour (actually 1/2 hour..)! And I probably need a separate "coffee clause" in my contract!   pax, steav     Steav W. Bates-Congdon It is by caffeine alone that I set my mind in motion...

(back) Subject: the fires (X-posted) From: <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2003 15:32:18 -0800   The battle to save the historic mountain town of Julian continues.   Channel Six has done some really heroic reporting from the front lines. I don't know if the national news is picking up their feeds, but the images from Julian were surreal. Watching the fire trying to cross the final ridge into town, it was like some kind of hungry monster ... it would engulf the hill-top; then they'd fight it down; then it would come again; they'd fight it down again. That has been going on all day. I don't know how the water-drop helicopters and tankers can fly ... the ONLY thing you can see from the ground is the thick, black, oily choking smoke.   A word about national coverage: despite the fact that San Diego is the biggest, worst fire, it seems that the national news IS Los-Angeles-centric. I don't know why that is. Or it may have changed as some of the smaller fires to the north have been somewhat contained. I stopped watching national channels because our local Fox Channel Six is the official local source for evacuation, road closings, water contamination, air quality, school and business closings, power outages, etc.   The fear is still that the Paradise Fire in San Bernardino County and the Cedar Fire in San Diego County will join together. The Cedar Fire alone is a fifty-mile-long fire-line at this point; more than ten thousand firefighters are involved; per Federal law, we had to wait until all State resources were exhausted before the Federal government would release National Guard and military resources. Additional Blackhawk tanker helicopters and C-120 (?) fixed-wing tankers arrived this afternoon, piloted by National Guard reservists.   Sadly, one fire-fighter has died in the battle for Julian; three are injured, one seriously. As the Coroner predicted, additional bodies are being found as authorities move through burned-out areas attacking hot-spots and turning off broken gas and water mains.   San Diego Gas and Electric ("San Diego Gouge and Extort") has never been highly-regarded locally, but their crews have put themselves in harm's way as much as the firefighters, foaming utility poles directly ahead of the fire, tackling downed high-tension lines in blinding smoke, and, amazingly, ALREADY restoring power to unburned homes in the MIDDLE of the hardest-hit areas like Scripps Ranch.   The Red Cross isn't garnering any laurels for themselves. During the LAST fire, there was a great scandal ... they directed earmarked LOCAL donations to the NATIONAL general fund, and relatively little reached the victims. Afterwards, there was a wholesale housecleaning in the local chapter; THIS time the local director went on TV and PROMISED that 100% donated would go to local victims, only to have the NATIONAL director of the Red Cross countermand that. The last I heard, the local director was defying the national director, but the issue is far from resolved. The Red Cross volunteers are doing the WORK, but people are directing their money and donations of food and clothing to Salvation Army and Fr. Joe (our local St. Vincent de Paul priest), rather than the Red Cross, until the issue is resolved.   The Better Business Bureau has already been on TV warning that scam artists are even now descending ... these vultures should be horse-whipped. They prey on the distraught.   There has been relatively little looting; and now the National Guard is here to relieve the police and the Sheriff's Department.   Some firefighters have been on the line for three days without food or sleep, but they have to be ORDERED to stand down. They're calm, matter-of-fact, and incredibly brave.   One thing that people outside of Southern California may not understand is that the primary battle is now being fought in some incredibly rugged terrain up in the mountains ... there are few roads, and many of the areas haven't had a burn in fifty years or more ... fifty years' worth of fuel is burning. Trees literally explode; three-inch-thick branches are ripped off trunks and thrown hundreds of feet into the air by the firestorms. Many areas like Forest Falls (where I used to live) are accessible by a single winding two-lane road.   The problem is that as Southern California runs out of buildable land, houses are built in more and more hazardous areas. Our second-largest fire ever, the Laguna Fire, was so tragic for the same reason ... houses were built on hillsides and canyons that the fire crews simply COULD NOT reach.   Ramona is being evacuated for the THIRD time as the winds shift back and forth from east to west.   The vast majority of horses that were released to run free (because they couldn't be transported) have miraculously been corralled and reclaimed. Del Mar Racetrack had over 400 displaced horses at one point; that number is down to 20.   There are hundreds and hundreds of smaller pets ... cats, dogs, pigs, llamas, sheep, goats, burros, mules, birds ... in rescue centers across East County.   Postal delivery is still spotty ... around 30% ... between burned post offices and the thick smoke.   There doesn't seem to be any new news about Mt. Palomar and the Observatory ... some trucks were headed there and had to turn back after the Julian front exploded again.   The latest tally:   628,000 acres burned 1,800 homes destroyed 23 deaths       Bud
