MY HAMMERED DULCIMER

MY HAMMERED DULCIMER

ABOUT THE HAMMERED DULCIMER

The hammered dulcimer is an ancient trapezoidal musical instrument played by striking the strings with wooden hammers.

Originating in the Middle East about 2000 years ago, English soldiers brought the instrument back to England after their failed attempt to conquer Persia during the Crusades about 1000 years ago. Dulcimers have many names in many lands: santur in the Middle East, yang q'in in China, hackbrett in Austria, zither in Germany, and cymbalom in Hungary. The name "dulcimer" is derived from Latin, meaning "sweet sound". Hammered dulcimers were popular in England during the reign of James I, when the Bible was translated into English as the King James Bible. The dulcimer was mentioned in the Book of Daniel 3:5 among other instruments "..the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music..." The dulcimer was later mechanized to become what we now know as the harpsichord which later evolved in the piano.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

THE SERENITY PRAYER
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen. - Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

WASP
WASP
U.S. Army Air Forces

The Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) was a paramilitary aviation organization.  In 1943 they were created when the  Women's Flying Training Detachment (WFTD) and the Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS) were merged together.  The female pilots of the WASP ended up numbering 1,074, each freeing a male pilot for combat service and duties. They flew over 60 million miles in every type of military aircraft.  The WASP was granted veteran status in 1977, and given the Congressional Gold Medal in 2009.  Some 25,000 women applied to join the WASP, but only 1,830 were accepted and took the oath. Only 1,074 of them passed the training and joined.  Thirty-eight died flying in the WASP


You can read more about WASP here

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom.  For that I am proud to call them Hero.

I cannot win


Posted on my Facebook account:updates done am about to restart the computer,if you do not see me in ten miniutes,that means system problem again and I will be on the phone to HP!

well folks the system is messed up I got that dreaded "Failure to configure windows update" error message again, so I called HP AGAIN This time the had me shut of the computer and restart the computer hitting F-2 to run tests and they determined based on the tests that the windows on my computer are corrupted so they are sending me Restore Disc to fix the computer, they said to turn off the updates until I get the discs and use them. the said I could use the system restore feature to get the computer where I can use my computer for the time being. Especially since I'm basically stuck here at home. I am beginning to fell like this:

Dang it.

Yep you guessed it,computer grief again,this time some updates came automaticially from either HP of Microsoft, I recieved a popup that said restart computer for updates to take effect,so id did and that's when all hell broke loose. FAILURE TO CONFIGURE WINDOWS UPDATES REVERTING CHANGES DONOT TRUN OFF COMPUTER. THE BAD PART THE DANG COMPUTER NEVER DID REVERT. I ENDED UP CALLING HP THEN HAD ME FORCE THE COMPUTER TO TURN OFF BY HOLDING IN THE POWER BUTTON. UNPLUGGING THE POWER CORD THAN HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON IN FOR 30 SEC.THAN PLUGGING IN THE POWER AGAIN AND TURNIONG THE COMPUTER BACK ON.GOT THE SAME ERROR MESSAGE SO I WAS TOLD TO TURN OFF THE COMPUTETR THAT TURN IT BACK ON AND TO CONTINUE TO REPEATLY AND FAST THE F11 BUTTON. FORCING THE COMPUTER INTO RECOVERY MODE. THE SERVICE TECHNICIAL PROMISED A CALL BACK IN 2 HOURS THAT CALL BACK HAS NOT HAPPENED  AND IT IS CLOSE TO AN HOUR AFTER SAID CALL BACK TIME. SO I DECIDED TO JUST TURNOFF THE UPDATES FROM BOTH MICROSOFT AND HP UNTILL SUCH TIME AS I KNOW THAT MY COMPUTWER WILL PERFORM THE WAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO.
A MONTH AND A HALF AGO I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND IT TOOK A COUPLE TRIES,WITH THE SYSTEM RESTORE VIA F11 AND THAN A SERVICE TECH HAD TO REMPOTELY ACCESS MY COMPUTER TO FIX IT.SOO I IMANAGINE THAT IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN.
