Topic: Constanze Mozart (1762)
Posted: Friday, January 5, 2018 6:38:23 PM
I am amazed that more attention has not been given to Madame Mozart, for her devotion and her savvy in a very devious and cutthroat social provenance, if that would be the correct term. Wolfgang was a rascal and reckless in his professional and personal dealings. Genius seems to have the gift of nonchalance. This should inspire people to explore for more info on Madame Mozart. Thank you Farlex, I love this site... you're my favorite bunch of happy new year to you and peace!

A story goes... when I was seventeen I thought my parents were the stupidest people I had ever known...when I turned twenty-one, I was surprised by how much they had learned in four years. That's definitely paraphrased. I remember that story from Hal Holbrooks, the one-man performance he used to do. I saw it on PBS years ago.
Topic: Hell and half of Georgia

I don't know really where this saying came from, but, I'll venture a guess and say, General William Tecumseh Sherman in reference to his devastating campaign through the state of Georgia during the American Civil War in 1864. Maybe not by him specifically but maybe by someone else in reference to that march to the sea. Just a guess!
Topic: Mount Holyoke Female Seminary Opens Its Doors (1837)

I'm sure, that in light of all of the recent events and a growing paranoia of male/female contact or interaction, that all males should be excluded from female educational facilities and that all men have no honor and all they see is a sexual opportunity. It's got to be the only solution to the travesty of these offenses. All men are pigs! I remember hearing this when I was a kid. That was in the 60's. So let us keep on finding ways to divide ourselves and finger point til the next big media event takes place....Oh Shit where are the Kardashians?....AAAHHHH!!!! We can always be bluffed by some media hype of some meaningless dimension! Were Americans, and were always right....aren't we? HAHAHAHA!!!!!!

Topic: Vladimir Samoylovich Horowitz (1903)

I will familiarize myself with his music as soon as I can, but I think I have a vague memory of seeing him perform on the Ed Sullivan Show when I was a child. Yes, Ed did have classic artists on too! I was drawn to this picture because it reminded me of someone.....then it hit me. Basil Rathbone, they could have been brothers, I swear.My apologies if I have offended any rigid admirers of the maestro! No disrespect was intended.
