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)

A scarry Thought.

I saw this article on this Blog. I was gonna comment on it and decided to turn it into a semi Diatribe on my site instead. KIDS YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN SCHOOL TO LEARN NOT RULE THE SCHOOL. WHEN YOU BECOME "AN ADULT" MAYBE.A teacher should not have to be afraid of the students YOU need to be afraid of the TEACHER AND THE PRINCIPLE AS I WAS.IF I ACTED UP IN SCHOOL I WAS SENT TO THE PRINCIPALS OFFICE AND USUALLY GOT MY BEHIND SWATTED WITH A PADDLE IF I WAS DUMB ENOUGH TO COMPLAIN ABOUT IT I GOT IT DOUBLE WHEN I GOT HOME.The main problem as I see it is that for too long ALL YOUR PARENTS HAVE WANTED TO BE YOUR KIDS FRIENDS THE IDEA THE DISCIPLINE BEING CHILD ABUSE IS DEAD WRONG.IT IS HIGH TIME IT WENT BACK TO IT DID IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS THEY WERE YOUR PARENTS AND NOT YOU FRIEND UNTIL YOU BECAME AN ADULT.THIS BEING SAID THAT MEANS DISCIPLINING YOU AS MY PARENTS DID.If I even dared to talk back to them I was in deep trouble.Now a days telling the adults what to do is the norm.to this I say HORSESHIT.
THE FLIP-FLOPS are a danger to YOU The Backless shoes can cause you to slip and fall.YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO CONFORM IN THE WORLD.ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO WORKING FOR A LIVING.NO ONE EVER HANDED ME ANYTHING ON A SILVER PLATTER.EVERY THING THAT I HAVE I WORKED TO BUY IT.
NOW THAT IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE SOCIETY.

I agree Mike. I see the very same thing. I see kids being disrespectful to their parents, teachers...well just about everybody. It's a shame and I am sure these very kids will become our next generation of convicts. Not all of them, but many.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Andrea said...

It is a sad state our society is in....if my kids were disrespectful to anyone, especially and adult/teacher they would get in trouble at home..far worse than school/church/etc.
Blessings, andrea

Mari said...

You are so right! There is such a sense of entitlement in so many young people today and I think a lot of it comes from parents who want to be friends, who give their kids whatever they want...
Discipline and hard work will teach kids a lot!

Mike Golch said...

Sandee,you have got that right.

Andrea,I smarted off once to my Dad and I was on the floor so fast it was not funny.Now a days that same thing would be called child abuse.let's stop mollycoddling the kids and go back to the ways it was.Yes Sir No thank ect.

Mari,My late father used to say if you want it work for it.He never handed me any thing.I was glad that he did.it taught me to be responsible.

Hey Mike,

Go check out today's post on Something Just To Start. This is the link: http://somethingjusttostart.blogspot.com/

You can delete this comment after you check it out!!

I agree with the entitlement part of this. However, it was very difficult for me to read as I was terrified as a child due to my abuse. Many parents today don't know the line between discipline and abuse.

This post triggered me.

Clueless

Syd said...

As long as I lived under my parents roof, I had to abide by what they said. I was disciplined by my father. My mother was not a great disciplinarian. But I loved both of them and did not want to disappoint them.

Mike Golch said...

SJTS,be right over.I'm sorry that you were abused.I still sand about the lack of respect and discipline.Sorry that I caused a trigger.

Syd,Yep house rules,their house their rules.I loved my parents as well,and tried not to disappoint them as well.

Clueless said...

Sorry to go on Mike. "The American Psychological Association opposes the use of corporal punishment in schools, juvenile facilities, child care nurseries, and all other institutions, public or private, where children are cared for or educated. It claims that corporal punishment is violent and unnecessary, may lower self-esteem, and is liable to instil hostility and rage without reducing the undesired behaviour. The APA also states that corporal punishment is likely to train children to use physical violence"

As a behavioralist, my experience is that corporal punishment solves the problem immediately, but does not teach them skill such as self control, calming one's self, thinking about natural consequences, etc..

Mike Golch said...

CC,yes corporal does solve tghe imediate problem,and along with teaching the proper way to do things and how to treat people the right way.My parents did all of that.I think I turned out pretty good.It all boils down as to how one raises their children.

Clueless said...

Mike...truce...I agree to disagree with this view point. okay. :-)

Mike Golch said...

Clueless,you got it we are in agree that we can disagree.
