All Saints' Day

All Saints’ Day, festival celebrated on November 1 in the Roman Catholic and Anglican churches, and by the Orthodox churches on the first Sunday after Pentecost, in honor of God and all his saints, known and unknown. It became established as a church festival early in the 7th century when the Pantheon in Rome was consecrated as the Church of the Blessed Virgin and All Martyrs. Pope Gregory IV gave the custom official authorization in 835. November 1 may have been chosen because it was the day of one of the four great festivals of the pagan nations of the north, and it was church policy to supplant pagan with Christian observance.
Tomorrow, Davao City is one of the busiest places to visit because of the annual celebration of All Saints' Day. I would say that All Saints' Day is an exciting but a crowded day to roam around because all people will see and bump each other in one big place, the crowded cemetery.

Wolgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), Austrian composer, who is considered one of the most brilliant and versatile composers ever. He worked in all musical genres of his era, wrote inspired works in each genre, and produced an extraordinary number of compositions, especially considering his short life. By the time Mozart died at age 35, he had completed 41 symphonies, 27 piano concertos, 23 string quartets, 17 piano sonatas, 7 major operas, and numerous works for voice and other instruments.

As a child prodigy Mozart toured Europe and became widely regarded as a miracle of nature because of his musical gifts as a performer of piano, harpsichord, and organ and as a composer of instrumental and vocal music. His mature masterpieces begin with the Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat Major (Jeunehomme, 1777), one of about a dozen outstanding concertos he wrote for piano. Also successful as an opera composer, Mozart wrote three exceptional Italian operas to texts by Italian librettist Lorenzo da Ponte: Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro, 1786), Don Giovanni (1787), and Così fan tutte (All Women Do So, 1790). They were followed in 1791 by his supreme German opera, Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute).
Amazing right! According to some pregnant women, allowing your baby to listen to his music will enhance the listening skills and would become a music lover when he grow up. He would be able to catch easily the melody of every music he wants to listen.

He was the Top 2 in their Class

According to his teacher, my nephew ranked as the number 2 in their class. He never comes late. He was an active student likewise a good listener. You know what, I was so disappointed because almost of his grades are failed. His classmate got a perfect score and ranked as the number 1 student . I believed that my nephew's grades would almost be the same with the first. I am confused of the big differences with their grades. I immediately went to their classroom and talked to his teacher and asked. "Good morning, Sir", Why is it that my nephew ranked as the number 2 in their class and still failed some of his grades?. The teacher simply replied. "Because I have only two students in my class. One is a genius and the other one is a moron". Bwahahaha
