MY HAMMERED DULCIMER

MY HAMMERED DULCIMER
There are various Hammered Dulcimer postings from YouTube of different tunes, and NO I AM NOT PLAYING ANY OF THESE TUNES.Maybe some day when I have the equipment to do so.I have included a link to my You Tube Channel.I invite you to go and watch any of my videos on the site also check out some of the different channels I subscribe to.

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)

I fought a like fight back in the late 80s. I won and when I retired those same guys that didn't want to work with a woman 15 years earlier didn't think a thing about me being the commander.

I don't agree with him. If I'm trained to do the same job you better believe that I can do the job. I found that I had to work much harder than my male counterparts to be accepted. Just my humble opinion Mike.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Mike Golch said...

Sandee,my point is that even on suface ships with mixed crews there are things being done that a no no.I think it would be worse in a submarine,just saying.I'M NOT SAYING THAT WOMAN SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO SERVE IN A SUB.

Travis said...

I read the post and didn't see a single legitimate reason offered as to why women shouldn't serve on a submarine. Just a lot of closed minded BS. Just a lot of "women shouldn't be allowed because I don't want them to be allowed".

I think the post is disrespectful to women, as well as to men who serve on submarines, implying that the presence of female crew automatically removes the self discipline and self respect of male crew. It implies that men and women can't work together in any professional environment and maintain proper discipline. What horse$**t.

Will it take adjustment? Of course it will, the same as adjustments to women at military academies and women serving in front line companies. But just because it's going to be difficult is no reason not to do it.

Alterity Button Jewelry said...

I'm sorry, Sandee, but I have to agree with Mike. We are humans...animals if you will...and humans have just a strong sense of reproduction as animals...but we get the added benefit of pleasure that animals probably don't have. Sure, there are some women and men in a sub that would not engage in inappropriate behavior on board a ship or a submarine, but there is always the one's that will. I'm not trying to be sexist, either. But this is just about the same as having mixed-sex prisons. Funny how women don't fight for that right. Sandee - you are a military woman and I admire that immensely. I could never do it. However, military women don't have to prove their worth by putting themselves in such situations. Just being in the military itself is enough to prove you are skilled, able and a bad a** that I wish I could be. what more do you need to prove? Like I said: I greatly admire military women. They are tough. They are disciplined. They are strong. They have something that the vast majority of us women only wish we had. You are respected, what more do you need?

Akelamalu said...

I have to agree with Sandee. If a woman is trained to do the job then that's all there is to it.

Mike Golch said...

Travis,Alterity Button Jewelry,and Akelamalu,this is what I wanted a good hearted dialog.

Mike

Why have I never been to this blog before? Geez.

Ok, so being that worked in a industry that was dominated by men, and I worked in close quarters with them just as hard, making me their boss within getting the job for only two months..... I say let the baddest of the female bunch come on board. Don't give the men temptation, just give them some nasty, trash talking females that can do their job without complaining about their hair going flat in the humid and cramped quarters.

I mean, is the world still focused on labels and sex issues?

If the women can do the job just as well, and they want to be on that sub(count me out)with some stinkin men, I say have a good time sister.

Mike Golch said...

Ancient Digger,you got that.It would not be my cup of tea.
