Last weekend I was watching History Channels's Worst Jobs. The host,a British man, was trying all kinds of horrible "professions" practiced throughout the ages and he was assigned one in which he had to make violin strings from the guts of sheep.(Musicians and artists had to supply their own materials!) First he had to cut open the sheep carcass...well, I'll stop there. Now aren't we glad we can now buy our mando strings at the shop? (And todays strings are made of wire, so at least we can save a sheep.)
You are only young once, but you can be immature forever.
