  1. that balanescu quartet sounds like a romanian name.. cool stuff

  2. Yup, born in Romainia, studied in Bucharest, and loads of other places.

    Thanks for commenting, Washing Machine!

  3. You trickster! How can you lead me to liking something like Dinner Belles. I don't think its in my DNA to do so, but in the context of the Snark, almost anything can happen!

  4. Wowee, you just can't help liking good tunes, Mr. Herman. Genre don't matter, and you know it! I'm surprised you're surprised.
