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 give up for the night.

I GIVE UP! FIREFOX WILL NOT DISPLAY ON MY COMPUTER AND AN INFO BAR SAY IT IS RUNNING I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHERE! I AM GETTING TIRED OF HAVING TO RESTART THE COMPUTER. HELL I CANNOT UNINSTALL FIRE FORE BECAUSE THE INFO BAR SAYS CLOSE FIREFOX FIRST. SO WHEN I DO GET THE COMPUTER TO BEHAVE I WILL UNINSTALL FIREFOX AND INSTALL GOOGLE CHROME AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL NOT CAUSE MY COMPUTER TO CRASH.

AND BEFORE ANY ONE ASKS I DID RUN A FULL SCAN WITH MY ANTI VIRUS AND MAL-WARE SCANS. NOTHING THERE. THERE IS ONE MORE SCAN I COULD RUN IT IS CALLED THE NORTON POWER ERASER IT EVEN GOT RID OF HIDDEN PROGRAMS THAT MAYBE THE ANTI VIRUS AND MAL-WARE MIGHT HAVE MISSED. I THINK I WILL JUST STICK TO PLAYING MY GAMES AND FORGET ABOUT DOING THE ENTRECARD DROPS AS WELL. SEE EVERYONE ON FRIDAY.

Sometimes you just have to walk away from what you are doing and play games. I can so relate. Firefox has been a challenge of late. They used to be the cats meow.

Have a terrific evening Mike. :)

Sandee,ZI used internet explorer to do this posting and today I dumped firefox from my computer and put in Google chrome.Here's hoping that my computer does not crash.

What is your operating system? My Mom has Windows XP and had all sorts of Internet problems. She had issues with IE (I forget what version Internet Explorer is up to-8 or 9 I think.) She went and uninstalled the update for IE and went back to IE 7 and was ok at one point but then had problems with websites crashing since she wasn't using the latest IE. OK then she went to Google Chrome as I love Chrome myself and I told her all about it. Her computer gave problems with Chrome too. It kept insisting she needed Windows XP or higher and would not recognize that she had XP!! Talk about frustrating...grrr. If you have Windows 7, Google Chrome is the best in my opinion. I wish you the best!

Dawn,I have windows Xp in my computer.I have internet explorer 8 and firefox 9.I uninstalled the firefox that I had and put in google chrome,and that when the fun really started so I unstalled the chrome.and put firefox back in sofar today every ting is working.

Mike, sometimes Firefox is a pain for that especially if you close it and re-open it to quickly.

Anyway if it happens again try opening the task manager, You can right click on an empty space on the Task Bar and click Task Manager, OR by pressing CTRL then Alt then Delete keys one by one in that order but keeping them pressed as u go then the task manager should just pop straight up.

Once you have got the task manager up choose the "Processes" tab scroll down till you see Firefox you will probably see a few highlight each one and click the "End Process" button bottom right within the task manager window, another pop up will appear click "End Process" on that too, make sure you repeat the procedure for each instance of Firefox that is running,that will save you restarting your PC.

Hope this helps

Happy New Year to you :-)

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.
