Being retired, I can technically get any day off work but it's nice to know rthat no school will be ringing for a relief teacher this morning.
Okay, I know that a lot of people still have the work but it's not my fault. This is where job selection is important and retirement is a very good selection.

That's enough about the queen, let's talk about me.
Yes, I know I've used that song before but it's a great song.
I'll be off to do some violin practice soon, though that will be after a bathroom visit. I've got some tone / bow warm up exercises that I'm doing every day. Evidently Mozart did a few of these exercises and it has taken me a while to track them down. There is a bloke on Youtube who talks about them but won't show them to you because he wants to sell them. I think that this is a bit mean because these ideas were passed to him and he should make them available to everyone. Fortunately I found another guy who was much more generous.

I'm also working hard to expand my Italian vocab. Here's an interesting word - asciugamano.
Some words are pretty easy to learn but this one (except sounding a bit like 'a sugar man o') has no relationship to it's corrosponding English word. You just have to put time in and learn it.
The big thing about learning a language is that you have to stop translating in your head.
You have to see the object and think asciugamano.

Well, that's it. Enjoy your day off, if you got it. Otherwise, work hard.
