One of my fellow teachers told me that she had it when she was 21 too and that it was really bad. Maybe it was the medicine, maybe I was just lucky, but I didn't get too sick.   Alicia Zeilenga "Santa Caecilia, ora pro nobis"     -----Original Message----- From: Glenda <gksjd85@direcway.com> To: 'PipeChat' <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Wed, 09 Feb 2005 17:21:34 -0600 Subject: Off-topic question; was: Thanks to those of you...   > Do doctors prescribe Valtrex nowadays for chicken pox?

(back) Subject: Ash Wednesday Vespers at Westminster Cathedral From: "Bob Conway" <conwayb@sympatico.ca> Date: Thu, 10 Feb 2005 11:17:06 -0500   If you would like to hear Ash Wednesday Vespers in an appropriate setting from Westminster Cathedral, go to the BBC Radio 3 Web page and point to Evensong.   This is a very fine broadcast of the Ash Wednesday Vespers, - how authentic, I don't know, but it is excellent singing by the choir, and seemingly appropriate organ accompaniment.   Bob Conway
