Thomas Henden asked about a supply of pouch leather for Duo-Art
theme valves. I would suggest that he check with his local Pipe

This message just came through on my e-mail from GEOCITIES ( this is
a company that provides free web pages to the general public to

Web pages are free at GeoCities and the setup can be found at
The Amazon bookstore is at http://www.amazon.com/
I'm not getting paid for this plug and I'm not selling any books
or recordings. :-)) Just passing along some interesting info.
