    the big Willis III at Liverpool Cathedral being restored...

    Hi everybody.

    I'm just getting the word out that the Anglican Cathedral at Liverpool is restoring their Grand Organ and are still raising funds to continue the work.

    I just sent a contribution along with an Adopt a Pipe application. For those of you who are interested, or if you know someone who might be interested, here's a web page: liverpoolcathedral.org.uk/about/the-organ.aspx

    Click "Adopt an organ pipe!" found in the right-hand column. This is pdf, so you'll be asked if you want to open it (bottom of screen). Application is printable.

    The address is included on the app, but I added 20 St. James Road for safe measure.

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Thank you for the news and the most informative website. I have several recordings of the Liverpool instrument and it is a good one and well worth restoring. Adopting a pipe would make a great christmas Gift to yourself and the World.

    You know you have reached Middle Age when it takes you longer to rest up than it did to get tired.

    Sadly the link you provided didn't work for me, however I nagivated to the root directory and found the link. Love the template for making your own pipe from cardboard, did you lot see that? David xo
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    I did see the template. That's a pretty original idea. So you were able to find the application after all?

    I double-checked the link and I had no trouble getting to the app. One might have trouble if the hyphen between the words "the" and "organ" is left out, or putting .com instead of .org
