BUT FIRST, A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR

Well, you've read the notes, the notes didn't suffer from psoriasis or hemorrhoids, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're suffering from hemoorrhoids and will be home as soon as they're better.

Birthday Greetings DR Danise.

I hope you can find the time to take a minute for yourself today, smell a rose and know there is joy in this world where people understand and care.

Down Under Bears.

Good morning DR CrabClaw
Are you off to milk the cows? Way too early for being awake otherwise.

DR elmore3003...

You made an excellent selection - that is definitely the Tallis recording I would have recommended to you, had I read your post yesterday in time.  You won't be disappointed.  And a nice bonus is a recording of the hymn tune that the Vaughan Williams Fantasia is based on.

I once participated in a performance of the 40-part motet Spem in alium with Peter Phillips conducting.  It was a magical experience.  The scores for it are about as big as a newspaper.    :P

Good evening DR Tomovoz!  Something like that...off to walk the dog, then to the gym, then to work!    :P

Ah, you can always trust Wikipedia to clear things up:

Pleurisy, also known as pleuritis, is an inflammation of the pleura

How wonderful to see "off your face" written rather than the now acceptable but (to me) annoying "off of your face".

"off your face"

And do you have occasion to use that phrase often?      ;)

Not these days.  LOL .

"Off", "from" and "of" seems to have merged in the last half century.

Borrow and lend have become rather "cloudy" too.
