    The virtuoso does not easily tolerate criticism from the peanut gallery.

    Please note that I nowhere stated that Petey is a virtuoso…. Go, Alice!

    In Sweden, in Luciafest activities in public, and at church, the Lucia Girl, and her girl attendants, are accompanied by lantern bearing “Star Boys”, who light the way for her.

    I told my sister her violin playing was akin to cats being tortured….Alice’s is better.

    There is nothing better than the sound of an Oboe, except maybe the sound of a cat being sucked into a vacuum cleaner.

    Has anyone compared the number of people who like oboe music to the number of people who like bagpipe music?

    As a lapsed bagpiper, I like oboes just fine.
