Cyndi Lauper’s Mountain Dulcimer Performance
Ivan Ng’s blogspot post regarding Cyndi Lauper’s mountain dulcimer performance came to me through Google Alerts today. Looks like a nice blog, and I’m happy to have found it.
It’s Time To Think About Christmas
The time is here now…to stop all my blogging and logging and get to thinking about my Christmas spirit. I haven’t wanted to think about it, but I feel better about it today…with all the computer work at a good pausing point.
Today one of my friends in my dulcimer world sent me one of those forwarded messages that I’m supposed to forward to a number of folks with expectations to be rewarded and/or surprised by blessings. Although I don’t normally forward these kinds of things….this one particularly pleases me to share with anyone who chooses to read this blog. I think it is visually, emotionally, and intellectually stimulating. It came to me as a Powerpoint attachment to my friend’s email message. I changed the file to be a Quicktime movie, hoping that it would be more universally viewable. We will see if that concept is correct, if we can view the new version through this link on the forum blog. If the movie is not viewable, please feel free to email me. I can forward to you the original Powerpoint version.
I tried to add a comment to the file statistics/information before making a Quicktime movie out of the slideshow, so I could reference my source. However, it seems the comments I added were not kept. My friend’s Powerpoint file statistics show that, after I changed it to the Quicktime movie, the file has been edited 17 times and that editing took over 130 minutes. The statistics also indicate the original file was created September 25, 2008, at 11:11 p.m. [ Hey, Mz. Margz! That’s Angel Time!!]
Along with the Quicktime movie, I’m happy to share this website that you might like:

The End of the Week
I can’t believe it is Saturday already….it seems like I just woke up to another week of nothing to do…and tried to find something to do….and stayed at it here at my desk in my Little Yellow Room….all week.

Mountain Dulcimers in Rossville, Tennessee, 2007
I came across these great pictures of the mountain dulcimer gang I enjoyd playing with at the gazebo near the Wolf River Cafe in Rossville, Tennessee, last year.
