And happy birthday to Mendelssohn too--a more uneven composer, but with some very nice contributions....

Great composer - I love his oratorios, and he released Bachs BWV 232 Mass in b minor for the first time, but is today actually his birthday?

Whoops. I thought I heard a fellow on the radio say that today, but seems I was mistaken. Mendelssohn's birthday is February 3.

But it seems Bach and Joseph Hayden may have the same birthday, if you convert Bach's date from March 21 (old style) to March 31 (new style), and if you accept the uncertain March 31 date for Hayden....

I think it's in the car designers' book of rules - 'heater cores must suck'.

I think they start with a heater core on a jig......then build a truck around it.

That's it. I made the mistake of trying to replace the heater core in a Volvo once... never again!
