Additions to my Blog List

I stayed home again to nurse my cold. I am determined to feel better by tomorrow. My theory is that if I go to the doctor and spend money for pills I will feel better after 3 or 4 days. If I stay in bed and take vitamin C and aspirin I don't spend money and will feel better in 3 or 4 days.

The day was not wasted however, as I put together this year's Christmas letter. Our arrangement for the annual epistle is that I select photos and Sue writes the text. It is ready to go to Kinkos and should be mailed by the end of the week.

My other small accomplishment for the day was to add 4 music blogs to my Blog List. I have followed "The Rest Is Noise" by New Yorker music critic Alex Ross for several years. Recently I have been reading 3 other music blogs; "MMmusing", "think denk", and "Feast of Music. I read them because I am interested in all things musical and because they are well written and very readable. I also added "Steamboats Are Ruining Everything" which is hard to catagorize but very interesting. I hope you will take a look and enjoy them too. Why have I selected these out of the many great blogs out there? Whim. After all, this is my blog.

Vous avez raison de rester au chaud et de prendre de la vitamine C... C'est toujours mieux que les antibiotiques.
Si ça ne passe pas d'ici 4 jours, il faudra aller chez le médecin...

J'ai appelé mon médecin cet après-midi et il va en quelque chose de téléphone à la pharmacie. Je vais mieux dans quelques jours. Je suis dur à tuer.

Hope you're feeding yourself well.
The old saying is "feed a cold and starve a fever" - no idea whether it works or not. I don't know when I last had a cold so I think I must be feeding myself the right sort of food :-)

Nice idea to send an annual round robin out at Christmas. I'm afraid I tend to write "love Anne" or "hope you are well, I'm fine".
I'm so lazy.

As I have the decorator doing my kitchen in at the moment I haven't had time to read your music blogs.
I glanced at them, saw the amount of reading and decided to leave them for another day! I do think having a whim is good - everyone should have one.

Hope your colds get better soon.

My verification word is "pater" how sad I don't have one........
That is meant in a fun way - definitely not morbid.
