Violin Maker

Really interesting story about a guy who makes violins using old-fashioned methods. For example, he goes to the northern Italian Alps and selects wood from the same forest that Stradivarius used four hundred years ago.

Now that the election is over I can read the NYT without getting angry.

that is pretty cool, will have to show you this neat violin store out in the middle of NO WHERE, where I got my violin.

If plied with enough alcohol I can bring it out and make the neighbor's cats yowl.

I'm better on the piano, but it never stops me.

Brigid - sometime if we can get drunk together, you play and I'll sing something from The Marriage of Figaro and everyone will regret their own existence! Sounds like a good time.
