Whither the firsts goeth...

I found this recently on a piece of (viola) sheet music...

I disagree with this bowing, but whither the firsts goeth, so must I.


It about sums it up.

Easter Story on One Step from Sunday

Something to add to your bag of tricks

When dealing with import buffer tables that you're planning on normalizing,
create the import buffer tables with both sets of fields (incoming field and
normalized field) so that you can avoid using a ton of alter table
statements, which are quite expensive.

Horton Hears an Evangelical (Linkage)

Ok, this I have to let you know about.

From No More Hornets: Horton Hears an Evangelical, featuring such lines as:

In a place known as Whoville the folks got distraught
When Horton the elephant said what he thought.
“The oddest of oddities isn’t as odd
As people believing that there is a god.”


and

We’ll drive you from Whoville; we’ll send you away.
Or else we will force you to worship and pray.
A person’s a person, no matter how small
But an atheist isn’t a person at all!”
