It not really a lesion. It was like some hard part on the outside, which I
could scratch off with the nails of my finger.

Inside? Warm/cold?

At the moment the first seedlings start falling, they were on the heating at 
a very stable temperature of 24 centidegrees. Above it was a growing lamp.
Now they are in our sunhouse, which is warm during the day, at least when the
sun shines, and cool during the night.

Potting soil. 


According to Horrowitz, there are three types of pianists: homosexual, jewish
and bad pianists. Do I have to worry?
