Next Monday is Columbus Day and we look at some of the music that the Admiral of the Ocean Sea and his crew might have heard in Palos de la Frontera in 1492 if they were so inclined. Spanish music in the Age of Exploration drew on influences from Europe and from south of the Mediterranean, making it some of the most diverse and original of its time.

Next we'll hear a few more of the Paganini Caprices -- we'll get to all of them over the next couple of months -- and then we begin another series of complete symphony cycles, this time the symphonies of Johannes Brahms.

  1. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 53% of adult dogs and 55% of cats in the US are obese or overweight.
  2. 22% of dog owners and 15% of cat owners said their pet's weight was normal when it was actually overweight or obese.
  3. The "fat pet gap" is the normalization of obesity by pet owners. (Read: fat pets = the new normal.)
  4. Cats who are 10 to 20% over their ideal body weight are considered overweight.

To help drive down the feline euthanasia rate in Brevard County, PURRS (People Underwriting the Rescue and Rehab of Strays), along with H.O.P.E. (Helping Overpopulation of Pets End) have teamed up to provide absolutely free spays and neuters of community cats on Friday, October 16, 2015, in conjunction with the 15th National Feral Cat Day.
