April 2017

Birthday PI – the highpoint of the month!

April began with Sharon’s birthday: Kerry and Katie baked an apple pie!

Allen and I moved Mini out of winter storage and put her up on the new jacks.

We continued to train at the gym Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, do yoga with Katie on Tuesdays, attend concerts at Severance on Thursdays, have dance lessons with Julie on Friday’s, and I had two Russian lessons a week with Daniil.

3-31 March 2017: winter ends, and spring arrives

Birthday PI – the highpoint of the month!

We continued with gym, yoga, and dancing each week.  Highlights of the month included A birthday/PI day pie which Katey and Kerrie (Yoga and babe watch) baked for Sharon.

On the medical front, I had a good test for circulation, and my other medical tests went well.

In addition to my reading (pleasure/pursuit of knowledge), I am studying:

o linear algebra

o topology

o abstract algebra

o quantum loop gravity

o Russian lanuage

and reading Prof Krauss’s new book:The greatest story not yet told.

A political highlight was our AL Dems meeting on 28 March, in which we honoured our elected official officials.

We changed out the winter dishes for the spring, but it snowed a little bit…

Supper was at Severance Hall, before the Concert, which was: Bernstein – On the Waterfront; Thomas -Violin Concerto No. 3; and Copeland – Symphony No. 3.  The last movement of the last piece contained “fanfair for the common man”…
