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)

The Blogger's Prayer

Lord help me to learn to spell without spellcheck, manage to visit all that visit me, and post regularly - all in 5 minutes a day, so that I can clean house and take care of my family. Help me to not look at every occurrence in my life as a blog post, and to quit taking pictures of weird things to share as well. Please Lord, help me to stop talking about my blog friends as though they are next door neighbors or someone I have known all of my life. And help me dear Lord, to think of something witty and wise to post tomorrow.

WTF THIS IS BULL.

I GOT THIS AS AN EMAIL,AND IT IS TIME TO END THE BULLSHIT.

Pretty amazing isn't it? It is time to haul the trash out.

According to

the Trustees for the Social Security Administration,

" THERE WILL NOT BE A COST OF LIVING INCREASE FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS IN SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS.

ADDITIONALLY THEY WILL RAISE YOUR CO-PAY FOR YOUR RX MEDICARE BENEFITS " !

They, the Congress (BOTH "REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATS TOGETHER") say no increase is warranted because of the losses in gross national product and other cute things..

NOW SPORTS FANS

THIS IS THE ONE THAT WILL FLIP YOU OUT!!

THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION IS FUNDING TWENTY FOUR MILLION DOLLARS-- LET ME REPEAT THAT AMOUNT...

SO YOU UNDERSTAND IT $ 24,000,000.00 DOLLARS FOR NEW ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS PROCESSING FOR OUR CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS !!

THEY ARE OBTAINING THESE FUNDS

and

I QUOTE DIRECTLY FROM THE SOCIAL SECURITY WEBSITE...

"THIS MONEY WILL BE COMING FROM THE SAVINGS TO BE GENERATED

FROM WITHHOLDING "COST OF LIVING INCREASES FOR 2010 & 2011

in SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS FOR THE ELDERLY

AND A $2.00 INCREASE ON ALL MEDICARE RX BENEFIT CO-PAY"


Please pass this to ALL your friends and have them

"PROTEST TO THE IDIOTS WE ELECTED TO CONGRESS"

who by the way, have just voted themselves ANOTHER 3% SALARY INCREASE!!!

We must put a stop to this outright thievery!

It is THE CONGRESS AND THE SENATE, BOTH REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATS, WE CAN'T FIRE THEM, BUT WE SURE CAN NOT RE-ELECT THEM,

and WE CAN IMPEACH THEM

or DEMAND RECALL ELECTIONS !!!

HOW ABOUT WE ALL GET TOGETHER AND DUMP THESE CLOWNS.

Just watch.

They will spend this money and find the software doesn't work,

dump the whole thing and go back to the old steam driven system

just like they did with air traffic control several years ago.

Don't worry though, they've got health care all worked out.
So here is what we CAN do.....


All I ask is that you consider the suggestion here.

The entire Congress of the United States is corrupt.

And I mean both Houses and I mean both major parties.
I realize that a few Members of each House are trustworthy,

but,

as a group they are absolutely the most corrupt bunch

to ever disgrace our Nation.
In November of 2010

the entire House of Representatives will stand for re-election;

all 435 of them.

One third of the Senate,

a total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election.

Vote every incumbent out.
And I mean every one of them.

No matter their Party affiliation.

Let's start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 people

who have absolutely no experience in running that body,

with no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents.

Let's make them understand that they work for us...
They are answerable to us

and they simply have to run that body with some common sense.
Two years later, in 2012,

vote the next third of the incumbents in the Senate out.
We can do the same thing in 2014 and,

by that time we will have put all new people in that body as well.

We, the People,

have got to take this Country back and we HAVE to do it peacefully..
That's what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.

I am also suggesting term limits on the NEW BUNCH –

8 YEARS FOR REPRESENTATIVES AND 12 YEARS OF SENATORS.

NO EXCEPTIONS.

THE LONGER THEY STAY IN OFFICE THE MORE POWER THEY GET

AND THEY LOVE IT AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET RE-ELECTED.

WE HAVE TERM LIMITED THE PRESIDENT –

NOW LET'S TERM LIMIT THE LEGISLATORS.

Please,

if you love this Country,

send this (as I have done) to absolutely everyone

whose email address appears in your address book..
This thing can permeate this Country in no time.

Let's make it happen.**

VOTE THE POWER ABUSERS OUT...

LET'S TAKE AMERICA BACK !!!

God Bless the U.S.A.!!!

In God We Trust!!!

I just read a NY Times article on this and it appears that lack of COLA may be more complex and is related to GNP and the general financial problems with the entire SS fund.

Wanda's Wings said...

This is awful. Thanks for the information so we can fight for what is right.

Mike Golch said...

Syd,here is the real ass kicker they also put the excess money from the social security payments thate paid in and after the payout that surplus goes into the general fund.This is why President Bush(42) said social security would be broke.

Wanda's Wings get ride of all the jerks.

ps I love your blue flower

no idea what it is, but I got a thing about blue flowers...

Gledwood said...

You just reminded me why I want to leave my own country (Britain) and flee somewhere else. I'm fed up of living with the consequences of my own Govt's mistakes. I'd rather go somewhere else (somewhere European bc I spent years studying 2 varieties of Eurobabble I've had scant opportunity to practise) where I feel less entitled to complain, and live with someone else's Govt's set of mistakes for a change.

Mike Golch said...

Blegwood,it seems that every one has the same problem,it's called professional politicans.

sheila said...

We certainly HAVE elected a bunch of idiots to congress haven't we? I get so frustrated on how things are run. The insanity abounds.

Mike Golch said...

Sheila,let's not forget the senate as well.the sad thing is the the idiots are on both sides of the isle.

Mike Golch said...

Yep! both sides need to be voterd out and start with a whole new bunch.We have got to take back America from big business.Befer we become a third world country as we are heading for with all the loss of jobes that keep being shipped overseas.I know we will outsource congress and the senate and the presidency to india.what will the politicians think of that??
