    Hi Roger, Wishing you a beaut weekend!

    A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and
    see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly
    cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which
    God has implanted in the human soul.
     ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
