GG: Everything!

Hello all! I've been absent for about a week because of dress rehearsals 
and midterms and work and illness, but here are my contributions, late 
though they may be:

The 9.95$ copy of _The Maestro_ is indeed the paperback copy, well-bound 
though. FYI, Tim Wynne-Jones is now best-known as a children's author - 
he won the Governor General's award twice, once for _The Maestro_ and 
once for a wonderful collection of short stories entiltled _Some of the 
Kinder Planets_. He writes picture books too. He has written adult 
novels, notably his first called _Odd's End_, which won a major debut 
novel award here in Canada (sorry, it escapes me at the moment) which I 
just loved - sort of a mystery-thriller-suspense that goes quite deep 
into human psychology and takes place in our beautiful MAritimes, near 
Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

My thanks to Bradley, K. Berry and Bruce: yes, of course it was Wanda 
Landowska I was thinking of. My mind is in six trillion different places 
these days. Where would I be without you?

My thanks also go out to those who have been participating in the 
recommendations for speaker placement. You supplied a badly needed shot 
of tear-inducing laughter. (And I will NEVER admit to experimenting with 
speaker placement to anyone but you... suffice it to say I had tried some of 
those suggestions not so long ago looking for a perfect audio balance!)
