Happy Birthday, Ron! 90 years young!

Today we celebrate the birthday of my husband Ronald William Sharp, the creator of the Grand Organ in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall.

Born in suburban Sydney on the 8th August, 1929, Ron attributes his long life to his love of classical music, and to his habit of keeping his mind active. He is keenly interested in gravity, and in recent times has published a book entitled ‘Gravity, Time and Consciousness.,’ which has been praised by Amazon reviewers.
