Discovered that the digital New York Times subscription does not include its crossword puzzle. I wonder if that will  raise the likelihood that fewer people will do crossword puzzles. I know in my case it is just a mild annoyance that I can’t do the puzzle without paying an extra 40 bucks a year and completely kills my own motivation to do New York Times crosswords which admittedly was pretty weak anyway.

When I google “free online crosswords,” I get over 5 million hits. Hmm.

I was pleasantly surprised to read on Susan Tomes blog yesterday that she also sees Mendelssohn as a sort of classicist. I wonder if this comes from the fact that we both like and play the D minor piano trio and other piano works by him (she’s a pianist).

Not sure this “book trailer” makes much sense if you don’t know that the book is about wasps and “spiders” taking over bodies of people and animals.
