Rhoda with the classics
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 studied sagemath and Russian, and had a great dance lesson with Julie: tango; waltz; and swing.
At seven, we had our monthly AL Dems meeting: I was reelected vice-chair.
I trained biceps and chest sat the gym, and then organized and prepped for yoga with the most fabulous katie!
I read a refererence to Mathimatica in a physics book, and wondered if there is an opensource version? There is: SageMath – downloaded, configured, and installed!

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.
at the M-M
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.
during the concert…
After his performance, Jan sat in the box two over from ours.
He signed CD’s after the concert.
A great ending to a great day!
