I have been to Leeds a lot but not to Bradford. But I believe that Bradford has a wonderful cultural life with lots of groups doing things and putting on plays or concerts. We used to have dogs but at present want the freedom to move about a bit. I keep hankering though. What sort of dogs do you have?

We have three rescue dogs, two large terriers and a Kelpie Australian sheepdog.

In 2022 when someone says Tic Tok I don't immediately think of a metronome! :laugh:

Terriers! Fab - we have had two Airedale Terriers and a Border Terrier. Are yours crossbreeds? What sort of mixture?

One’s a large Parson Russell type and the other’s a refugee from Romania that looks like a small black shepherd dog.

My current avatar is Isang Yun. A composer that has long fascinated me. I recently acquired a box set of his orchestral, choral, chamber and solo instrumental works and I have been enjoying the journey immensely. I remember hearing his symphonies on the CPO years ago and even back then, I was impressed with what I heard. He's Andre's favorite Asian composer, but, honestly, I'm still exploring so many composers from this part of the world that I'm reluctant to name an absolute favorite, but I'll just leave it at I believe Yun is an incredibly fine composer.

Thanks for the Heads Up.

My very first favorite Romanian poet, a Symbolist I discovered during my high school years --- first and foremost because of a crush.  :D

Oddly enough, the self-same crush resulted in Beethoven's Pathetique being my favorite piano sonata of his.  :D

My current avatar is England's greatest symphonist, Ralph Vaughan Williams. Let's celebrate the 150th Anniversary of his birth year together!
