I had scheduled a BQOD post and then thought better of it. I’m trying very hard to be less snarky. I make mistakes, after all, so why shouldn’t other bloggers. Right? So my snarky little BQOD went away.

BUT … for the record … there are no English horns in Mozart’s 40th symphony! I am guessing the blogger meant French horns, yes? It just made me smile … that old confusion of the French horns and the English horns.

It’s really simple if you think about it. English horns sounds best. 😉

Okay. I’m JOKING.

Or am I?
