I trained legs and shoulders at the gym, and then had lunch with Sharon at Panera, where I also prepared for my Russian lesson downtown with Daniil.

When I was in high school, I had a book: German through pictures.  I recently wondered if a Russian version existed, I ordered same through Amazon, and it arrived today.

In the evening, it was Loco Brits: I drove Rhonda.

I upgraded Ubuntu to version 16.04 and improved performance by changing a tuning parameter -swappiness.

I trained back and triceps at the gym, and Sharon and I ate lunch at Red Robin, and shopped at Heinen’s – food.

I had a Russian lesson with Daniil at Troubadors, and we ate supper at home.

We enjoyed both the Indians and Cavs wins in Detroit.

Thursday 21 April 2016: some of this and some of that.

Our decorator of the week – Patti – came over, and we installed two new chairs and she showed us some of our new lighting.

Some of my items date to 1966: for example the wall system, the cocktail table, and the pole lamp.

Thursday usually means a concert at Severance Hall, today included.

We had dinner before the concert at the Michelson-Morley Restaurant on the CWRU campus.

As we were walking into Severance, we talked with the bar manager – Danni – a friend: a friend of a bar is a friend for far…

The concert consisted of: Polonia Overture; Wagner; Piano Concerto No. 2, Chopin; and Symphony No. 3, Beethoven.

The conductor was Antoni Wit; and the soloist Jan Lislecki.

After his performance, Jan sat in the box two over from ours.
