My Hammered Dulcimer

My Hammered Dulcimer
There are various Hammered Dulcimer postings from YouTube of different tunes, and NO I'm not playing any of them.

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.

Rambling Stuff Under Construction

I've been working on Mike's blog since my return from our boating weekend. I'm moving posts and comments from this blog to another blog and when I get that done I'll move that blog over here and then reload the harbor template that Mike likes. In any event Mike has promised not to moderate comments until I'm done. If he does moderate comments then I have to move them as well. Believe me I've enough to move. I'm only on January 12 and I have a ways to go. So be patient. Mike isn't ignoring you, he's only doing what I've ask him to do. I'm hoping to have everything up and running tomorrow sometime. Comments have been turned off on this post. On purpose.

this time I had to clean out my house(blog) there were numerous duplicate entries,I deleted them.

My Birthday

Today I celebrate the fact that I turn a grateful 58 years young. This being said, it has been a struggle to make it this far given all the near disasters that I lived through. When I was younger I did foolish things, any one of the could have lead to my death. Then there were the major health scares that I have had. Then there were the numerous drinking binges and yes some drug use when I was in my early 20s. I have finally managed to put the drinking behind me ever since 17 Dec 1990.

The seizures have not been fun. Nor have the numerous suicide attempts. Gratefully I have survived all that nonsense. I will most likely be in some form of therapy the rest of my life, so be it. I do know that no matter how bad I think I have it, there are others that have it a lot worse off that I do. I'm grateful for all the creature comforts that Celestine and I have. I never for one minute take them for granted.

I'm grateful for the friends and family that I have as well as all my cyber friends. All in all it has been a great ride and I look forward to the future. Especially March 1 2010. Celestine and I will be married 30 years.

A Rant

This rant is leveled at one certain nut case (me). When in the hell will things just go right when I try to do something. With Sandee's help this blog was fixed. At first I thought that I had lost all of my posting. I managed to retrieve them. The really aggravating part all posting before 1/5/2010 have lost all the comments.WTF???

PRAYER REQUEST

I JUST READ A HEART BREAKING POSTING ON LAURA'S SITE. LET'S KEEP HER ON OUR PRAYERS SHE REALLY NEEDS THEM. I COULD NOT LEAVE A COMMENT I WISH I COULD HAVE I WOULD BEG HER NOT TO GIVE INTO THE FEELING SHE POSTED ABOUT.

Do you need a hug??

My blogging friend, C.C. has a great posting today. It is worth the trip over.
