Quote of the Day
The kitchen is the heart of every home, for the most part. It evokes memories of your family history.
Music evokes so many feelings in us, memories, nostalgia, things that are connected to our past.

On the rare occasions when I spend a night in Oxford, the keeping of the hours by the clock towers in New College, and Merton, and the great booming of Tom tolling 101 times at 9 pm at Christ Church are inextricably interwoven with memories and regrets and lost joys.

P. J. O'Rourke
