Still no news on a new date for the surgery. Thank you again for all the warm wishes and prayers. They really meant a lot to me. One reader asked if I minded the prayers of “someone who wasn’t Jewish.” So let me clearly state my policy. I accept prayers from anyone (and everyone) with good intentions.
Just to add more madness to the mix, my daughter came down with chicken pox the week before school ended. And I thought she had it when she was little! I must have mis-diagnosed it the first time, because there was NO doubt this time around. She had a pretty bad case. Oh well. I guess that’s why no one comes to me for medical advice.
See ya on the Net,

Mozart Printable (** for premium members only)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) was a leading Austrian composer of the late eighteen century. He was only five years old when he wrote his first minuet. Would you like to hear it? The multimedia magic of the Internet brings Mozart to life.
Classical Music Archives: Mozart
Hearing Mozart’s music is integral to any study of his life. At the Classical Music Archives you can listen to hundreds of his compositions in MP3, MIDI and WAX (a special kind of Windows Media Audio.) Guests can listen to up to five pieces of music per day. This limit is removed for paying subscribers, who can also can download the music files to their own computers. To hear Mozart’s first minuets, scroll down the page to Nannerl’s Notenbuch. To untangle the complexities of audio file formats, read their “How to Listen to Music on the Internet”
The Mozart Project presents the milestones of Mozart’s life in a time line showing concurrent world events. Europe was seething with political and cultural activity throughout the eighteenth century, greatly affecting Mozart’s development. You’ll also find an annotated catalog of Mozart’s life work, cross referenced chronologically as well as by category. This is not simply a listing of compositions, but a detailed insight into each work and it’s creation.
Mozart’s Magical Musical Life
“Once upon a time, when men wore powdered wigs and rode in gilded carriages, a
baby boy was born in the beautiful town of Salzburg. The little boy’s name was Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophillus Amadeus Mozart. Can you imagine writing that on the top of your paper in school?” Thus begins the whimsical, musical biography of Wolferl (for short). Liberally sprinkled with audio clips, this outstanding story reminds me of those Play-a-Sound children’s books with sound buttons for each character. This click-and-play biography is a must-see site for kids of all ages. Bravo!

“Consider yourself under orders to work from your hospital bed, as your service is too valuable to allow of any hiatus!”
Well, Trevor, I’m glad you find my Printables Club service so valuable, and I’ll just have to take the other comment as a joke. You meant it as a joke? Right?
