On Sunday, I finished that puzzle cache and found 3 other geocaches. Before starting, we had breakfast at an old diner / truck stop in Inglewood, near the cache sites. I can't remember the name of the place, but it has been there for over 50 years and has a model railroad running around the room on a track about 6 feet off the ground.

The writer obviously knows his stuff, and writes clearly and well. Very helpful discussion of sonata form, which Beethoven used in most of his compositions. It's really helping me get a handle on Beethoven.

I'm still reading the Powys biography, too.
