Monday Night:  In the course of reviewing a poem the eldest gel had written for school about Pontius Pilate, she and I got into a discussion of such weighty matters as free will vs. predestination, the dual nature of Jesus and God’s existence outside of Time.

Tuesday Night:  This same gel, who 24 hours earlier had been wrestling with questions worthy of Aquinas, was in a sullen, incoherent fury because I made her go to running practice when she wanted to duck out.

Ah, teenagers……

Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

One of ol’ Robbo’s Lenten abstentions is the giving up of listening to musick, but I would be remiss if I did not point out the fact that today is the anniversary of the birth, in 1685, of Johann Sebastian Bach.

The older I get, the more I am convinced that Bach was, simply put, the single greatest musickal genius in the entire history of Western Civilization.

So there.

Happy Birthday!
