Well, you've probably heard it by now, but today is the 250'th birthday of W.A Mozart.

I remember standing in a supermarket one time and looking at a small boy who was carrying a plastic violin that could play songs if you pressed a button.
He pressed the button and it played one of the Austrian hitmeister's themes, can't remember which one, I was never much into classical music.
Despite being filtered down through two hundred years of passing time and a 0.25 Cent speaker from some slave-factory in China, the message came across well enough: What a great song!
I tried to hum it for the rest of the day, lost it - found it again.
it was really such a great little tune.

Happy birthday.
