It's The "Other" General....
Talk about cinema verite - I just happened to be walking by and saw this
amazing piece of mechanical history blasting in a parking lot and started
shooting some video. It is a restored 1937 Wurlitzer automated organ.
All mechanical and air pressure controlled. Check out the two sets
of bellows- one on the bottom for power and the other on top for regulation.
This thing was so loud that only afterwards did I realize that I should
never have gotten right up next to it. Deafening!! Anyway,
enjoy. What? What? Oh, just watch.

Cutting fabric in my
May 4, 2014
My Dad died suddenly
and unexpectedly at his home in the evening of April 30, 2014, he was 70
years old. My Dad was an MSW (Master of Social Work), a therapist
specializing in addiction and family crisis, and had been in private practice
for the past 22 years. He had dedicated his life to helping others,
and he bettered the lives of so many people, including our family.
My Dad was an avid sportsman, a life-long athlete, baseball player, and
pro-level golfer to the end.
My Father was my best friend.
Without him I could not have survived to be who I am today.
