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.


IF YOU WANT TO SHARE ANY POSTINGS

ANYONE IS WELCOME TO TAKE THE STUFF POSTED HERE TO SHARE ON YOUR SITE. ALL I ASK IS A TIP OF THE HAT AND A LINK BACK. UNLESS I SAY HANDS OFF THIS POSTING!!!

THIS IS BULL!

If you do not know the FREE LINKY TOOL IS NOT GONNA BE FREE SOON. I RECIEVED THIS EMAIL.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE – Please read this if you have a Linky Tools account and want to keep it OPEN…

This email is the nutshell version. More details here if interested…

LinkyTools has grown at an outrageous pace. As hundreds (thousands?) of you know, I personally take care of all customer service. I listen, I help, I improve and I take care of my subscriber-blogging friends. But… the expense and time have gotten completely out of hand. Donations don't happen. Ads are not producing money, the advertising scene is worn out. The hosting expense, customer service (me) and maintenance of Linky Tools is simply unsustainable as a 'free service'.

I have funded Linky Tools out of my own personal pocket. I can no longer afford either the growing expense or the unpaid time. I know charging for the service is going to cost me a lot of users, maybe most, but I would rather provide a great tool and personal service for a smaller number of people who know Linky Tools is worth a small yearly fee ($24.00). That's two one dollar bills a month. People lose more change under their car seats and couch. Subscribe here…

If you just thought 'no way, I'll find a free service' then be sure to check out the list of new stuff that is coming (below), and the testimonials at the bottom of this message stating how much new traffic and benefit Linky Tools has been to blogs.

This is the best linky system on the Internet. I am constantly adding new tools and features. The tools, the traffic it brings you, the web links back to you, the increased exposure on the Internet from the blog directory, blog hops and lists… all for about half a cup of coffee a month. Beside all the great Linky Tools, you're going to get this NEW STUFF too in the coming weeks:

    * Optional email notifications when someone enters a link on your list
    * Click stats on your links, and summary stats on your account
    * Blog party (meme, carnival, etc) directory
    * Linky Tools Blog Rankings System
    * Linky Tools Reference Desk
    * Add a Bible Verse or inspiration quote to your Linky list
    * A multi-list creator function (example: create 20 lists with one click, scheduled in intervals)

As always you'll get personal service from me when you have a need, idea or comment, featured placement in the Linky Tools Blog and your blog posts, stories and ads in SeriousLife Magazine upon request and approval.
NEEDLESS TO SAY I SENT A REPLY TO THE EFFECT THAT BRENT WILL NOT RECEIVE ONE PENNY FROM ME,and so my account will just disappear.besides I never could get it to work right for me anyway.
I am on a fixed income and still have a house note amongst other things that eat up my monthly income. Yes 24.00 bucks a years is not much.but the service has been FREE.

I noticed this one when I did my Wordless Wednesday, and unless I find another (free) linky service, it will be my last linky.

Have a great weekend.

Well, he's paid a lot of bucks out of his own pocket to do the site so I can see his point. I don't really care for his linkies, but I love Mr. Linky and have a premium account there. I will continue to keep that account.

Sorry this has ticked you off Mike. Hugs. :)

C.A.T. I could never get it to work right any way.

Sandee,I can see it as well.the fact is that he has a premium service as well as the free one now he has decided that every one should pay.that's what ticked me off.I am lucky that I break even at the end of the month. there have times that has not been the caes and the little cusion that we have is dwindeling evey month.there may come a time that I will not be able to afford the DSL and that will be the end of blogging for me.
