Happy Birthday to two music makers!

Wow, I can't believe it's been 12 days since I last posted anything to this blog. I suppose the 3 kiddies under age 2 is a good excuse for that. Well, after today I will no longer be able to say that I have 3 kids under age 2 since my Big Boy turns two-years-old today. Happy Birthday Josh! Here's a photo of him eating his "breakfast of champions" for his Birthday Breakfast.

It's also the 250th birthday of Mozart. So in his honor I post this wonderful quote from "Red" (played by Morgan Freeman) in one of the greatest films ever, "The Shawshank Redemption."

On Mozart's piece "Duettino-Sull'aria" from Act III of The Marriage Of Figaro

"I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singin' about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I like to think they were singin' about something so beautiful it can't be expressed in words and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared, higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away. And for the briefest of moments, every last man at Shawshank felt free."
