May 22, 2006 at 5:24 PMFirst of all, here is my analysis of the classical music question:
Personally, when I wrote the question, I was thinking I would be getting adjectives and not nouns, so I was surprised about all the nouns mentioned. I was really surprised that classical music = Joshua Bell to some people! Of course, that doesn't really count because I was jabbering on and on about a certain concert I was at.
Another thing is people think (perhaps subconsciously) that classical music is caught in a time warp. That is evident from all the composers mentioned. They are all about 300 years old. Well, Mozart is only 250, but still!
I guess the other responses are self-explanatory. If one experiences classical music enough, one grows to love it. If one plays and is really dedicated to their instrument, that is the first thing that comes to mind. No negative responses appeared, though! That is what is most baffling to me.
Now for the pictures!
I would like to take this opportunity to rename myself as the cow-whisperer. Seriously though, when anyone else came over, they would run off!
Königstuhl (King's Chair) is inexplicable. Königstuhl is the summit of a hill overlooking Heidelberg. The view is amazing and this picture doesn't do it justice.
We visited a rhododendron patch from 1904 this weekend. I didn't think it would be that big of a deal, but it was gorgeous. Pauline, I thought of you when taking these pictures because you always post such pretty flower pictures on your blog. I wish you a speedy recovery!
In and among the rhodies.
Secretly, cows have a microscopic "lip" on behind their ears. This lip allows them to make high-frequency sounds which the average adult human cannot hear. The infant child- toddler, however, is still able to sense these noises. Technically speaking, at that age, they can communicate with cows. All babies are born with a micorscopic sensor similair to those of cows on their feet. As this sensor begins to close up, the baby begins to make lower cooing and gahing noises, in order to replace the now lost-high frequencies.
Thus, we may conlude that Sydney has not yet been exposed to presbyacousis, and secretly conceals a microsophic "lip" on the bottom of each foot. This allows her to be capable of what she calls, "whispering to the cows."

It's not me... It's those stupid Harvard keyboards! :P
