Which instrument should you have learnt?

Apparently I Should Play the Saxophone:

You are charismatic, friendly, and very uninhibited.
You have a lot of personal expression to bring your music.

Improvisational and informal, you can't deal with an instrument that has too many rules or complexities.
You are much more interested in creating unique solos than immersing yourself in music theory.

You have a lot of style, and you definitely are one smooth operator.
And while you may not play perfectly, no one's going to accuse you of being boring.

Your dominant personality characteristic: being very outgoing

Your secondary personality characteristic: your flair for the unique and dramatic

British Days in Castle Linn

Today we spent a lovely albeit cloudy morning at Castle Linn which hosted this year's British Days in Krefeld.

Although the country fair was advertised as "British Days at Burg Linn" the stalls featured soap from Marseille, cheese from Austria and clothing from Australia. However it was avery nice fair with lots of the kinds of little things that Sue likes. I'm sure that Nathe would have been more interested in the falconry display. The only stuff we bought though were some spices I need for my curries and a cross stitch kit for Annette.

Back to school

to all of you going back to school today: "Have a good start". I know it's hard going back after six weeks off but just think of all the little eager minds that want to be filled with knowledge ;-) Shame that school isn't out for ever...
