Dear Sun Spots: I am looking for a Technics KN 550 keyboard. I am blind and it is very hard to learn all the buttons and such on the different keyboards. I already have a Technics KN 550 that I have had for a long time. It is getting pretty worn out. If someone has one they are not using, maybe they would consider selling it. My phone number is (207) 743-7965. Please just ask for Norman. If I’m not home, please leave your name and number and I will get back to you. – Norman DeCoteau, No Town.


Dear Sun Spots: Could you please give me the address of Bud Selig, the baseball commissioner? I would like to reach him if possible. Thank you. – Richard Tomko, Brunswick.

Answer:
Try contacting him at Allan H. “Bud” Selig, Commissioner Major League Baseball, 245 Park Ave., 31st Floor, New York, NY 10167.

Dear Sun Spots: I am looking for the words to “God Can Do Anything But Fail” and “The Old Fashioned Meeting.” – No Name, Auburn.

Answer:
Unfortunately Sun Spots has been unable to locate the words to “The Old Fashioned Meeting.” Perhaps readers out there familiar with this would be willing to share it with you. In the meantime, the words and music to “God Can Do Anything But Fail” are by Ira F. Stanphill and you can locate them online at Guitar Picker (www.gospelmusic.tk)

God Can Do Anything But Fail

God can do anything,

Anything, anything;

God can do can do anything but fail.

He can save, He can keep;

He can cleanse, and He will.

God can do anything but fail.

He’s the Alpha and Omega,

The beginning and the end;

He’s the fairest of ten-thousand to my soul.

God can do anything,

Anything, anything;

God can do anything but fail.

Dear Sun Spots: Could Sun Spots find out if “Antiques Roadshow” might be in Maine or New Hampshire up ahead? I’d so like to go to one of them. – Sally McC., Sabattus.

Answer: According to www.pbs.org, taping of this TV roadshow isn’t scheduled in either Maine or New Hampshire up until May 2004. According to the site production supervisor Matt Haberstroh and production coordinator Jill Czerepinski, they sift through proposals and make recommendations on which cities to visit. They spend a lot of time talking with visitors’ bureaus and convention centers in different cities across the country and when they settle on a promising place they conduct surveys to find the right fit.

It’s a critical part of their pre-production. They have to be in a place that will accommodate several thousand people, as well as allow them to produce a high-quality television show. The basic questions they need answered are: Is the hall big enough? Ceiling high enough? Is the power adequate? and, Is the hall quiet enough?

Believe it or not, noise is a source of more problems on their set than any other factor. Their sound equipment picks up everything, from the whir of an unusually loud air conditioner to the buzzing of fluorescent lights. Even exterior noises like traffic, airplanes, trains and nearby sporting arenas, can hurt.

Dear Sun Spots: Can you please help me? While waiting in a doctor’s office I picked up a book “Reader’s Digest A-Z.” It had so many interesting facts about so many things. I would like to know where I could get the book. – No Name, Oxford.

Answer: Sun Spots contacted the doctor’s office you mentioned in your inquiry, however the book is no longer there. Sun Spots would recommend you contact Reader’s Digest at 1-800-310-6261 or through their Web site at www.rd.com.
