    I really like Dover books. They usually group pieces together well, and are pretty cheap I guess (they don't make you buy multiple volumes of a set of pieces or whatever). The only complaint I have is with the Faure Nocturnes & Barcarolles book, as not only are the 13th entries in each group not included, but in many places the music is very faded.

    Oops, sorry for getting everyone off topic. This thread gets off topic a lot, doesn't it?

    The Dover Rachmaninonov and the Granados books have very nice covers. They're prints of fine art pieces.

    I like the workmanship in the Dover editions, all my Schirmer books are falling apart. But IMO, you don't get better than the Henle urtext editions ... love the paper, never fall apart, lay on the piano well, just too darn expensive for me.

    Soon I will post a couple of pictures of my house and the vicinity around it. We received about 30" of snow (914 centimeters). An old Austrian pine (~90 years old) next to the house is partially uprooted because the weight of the snow pushed down the limbs. And some of the snow piles from moving the snow in the driveway and parking lot are about 15 feet high!!!!

    Sledding anyone? Perhaps we can dig a few tunnels!!!!!!! :D

    I thought about you this morning when the morning news was talking about Madison. We only got a foot.
    (snow tunnels are fun)

    We had at least a tenth of an inch last weekend. I dashed out to make a snowman but it had already turned to slush. Winter in Holland :roll:

    Yeah...that inch last month was the most snow we've had in my whole life, and by the time I woke up, it had already rained and most of it had melted. :lol: But oddly, what remained after the rain stuck around for two whole days after that...

    Picture 1: This is a picture of the balcony and a large snow drift above my parents' bedroom.

    Picture 2: This is a picture of the Yews in front of the poarch. Normally they do not touch the ground, but the snow pushed the brances down. So now it looks like a snow mound.

    Picture 3: This is a picture of the northeast lawn taken from the street. The 80feet + Spruce trees look very beautiful

    Picture 4: This is a picture of the driveway taken from the street. The brown and black buildings (to the left of the house) are the greenhouses.

    Picture 5: This is a picture of the driveway looking out towards the street from the brown greenhouse. Can't see the street because the driveway curves slightly

    Picture 6: This is a picture of the back of the parking lot near the barn. The two machines you see are tall. I drew a red line to show you how tall I am when I stand next to the machine. The snow bank is taller because from the cab of the machine to the bank is another 10 feet. Huge snow mountain!!!

    Picture 7: Another picture of the house from the brown greenhouse. Note the Austrian pine leaning into the Yews (on the right corner of the poarch)


    Terez, the snow is somewhat fluffy. It is not completely dry because it is about 33 degrees so there is a lot of water in the snow...making it a little heavier and wetter.


    I hope this helps you Techneut.

    But if it's fluffy and you can roll around in it, I guess it does not really matter :lol:

    Nice pictures, Julius. The little kids in my neighborhood would love building snow forts in those mountains.

    (Did you hear that we're supposed to get more snow on Monday? :shock:)

    Ooooo... why did it never occur to me to post my favorite picture of myself here?

    Oh yeah... because I'm an absent minded idiot... that's why!

    If I really wanted to freak everybody out... I could post a picture of myself from this morning...
    I just got hit with the flu... and I looked like hell ... all hunched over in a bathrobe, hair disheveled... I couldn't even stand up...

    But that wouldn't be any fun, now would it?
    So instead... my tribute to nerds the world over...
    My halloween costume from this year.

    (I'm the one in the middle... the guy... NOT the girls on the sides... and there were various people lurking around in the back... because we were in the middle of my school's cafeteria...)
