And another thing.. What's all this fuss I keep hearing about violins on television? Why don't parents want their children to see violins on television? I always thought the Boston Pops concerts were just lovely. If they only showed violins after 10pm, the little babies would all be asleep and would never learn any music appreciation. I say there should be more violins on television!

What? What? Oh. Never mind. . .

Happy Friday Miss C!
