It seems like it is getting ready to happen again.
Awesome! I haven’t had my world rocked all day! :)
Well...except to find out the Food Network is dropping Paula Deen. Grrrrrrr
Listening as I type! *Hugs*
Not really, we got thunderstorms for all weekend. Which means I’ll be flat on my back all weekend too....DRATS!!!
I had never heard of her until the controversy today. I have my own recipes and they are a lot better than hers! ;-)
Oh yeah.....this is doing the trick....gurney STAT!!!! ;-}
Wow! What a cool thread!
Thank you, connie, and thanks and God Bless to all of our troops!
A world map published by the National Geographic Society has this notation: Earths mass is 6.6 sextillion tons. And what supports all that weight? Nothing. The planet we inhabit spins on its axis at 1,000 miles per hour as it hurtles through space in its orbit around the sun. But its easy for that to remain unnoticed in the midst of our daily concerns about health, relationships, and how to pay the bills.
The Old Testament character Job repeatedly considered Gods creation in his struggle to make sense of the numbing loss of his health, his wealth, and his children. [God] stretches out the north over empty space, Job said. He hangs the earth on nothing (Job 26:7). Job marveled at the clouds that did not break under the heavy water inside them (v.8) and the horizon at the boundary of light and darkness (v.10), but called them the mere edges of His ways (v.14).
Creation itself did not answer Jobs questions, but the heavens and the earth pointed him to God the Creator, who alone could respond with help and hope.
The Lord who upholds the universe by the word of His power (Heb. 1:3; Col. 1:17) is in control of our everyday lives. Experiences that seem empty places are all undergirded by our heavenly Fathers power and love.
Read: Job 26:5-14
All’s well so far but not really happy about them being so far away. Kiara fell and got a cut that required stiches....but she’s running wildly again now and bragging about her scar.....Kids!
Rofl! Those are hysterical Cindy Sue!
I sent them to a friend of mine in dispatch....she'll love them.
Thanks for the giggles & have a super duper weekend! *Hugs*
I certainly hope not mountainlion. *sigh*
I have such a great respect for those who fought in Nam. Those who served did what was asked of them & have never been fully honored as they should be by the masses.
Thanks for your hard work!

If you have occasion to attend one of these concerts live, theyre held at the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall, which is upstairs at Benaroya Hall at the corner of Third Avenue and Union Street in downtown Seattle. Theres a bus and light rail station (University Street) just under the hall. The secret of the acoustics is to sit either in the very front or the very back. In the middle, the piano sounds clangy, and the balance between instruments is sometimes lost. People would see where I sat and say, Well, if old Pubbies sitting there, thats the place to be. For that reason, veteran ticket holders now reserve their seats all the way in the back.
Now that Jimmy Ehnes is Artistic Director, were getting a lot of music weve never heard, which is a joy for me. I love the old chamber warhorses, but there are a lot of pieces that dont get heard very often that are gems. As we approach each concert, Ill introduce one piece per evening at the Canteen with commentary about the piece. On concert nights, Ill introduce the musicians.
Tonight Ill take you through the opening piece for next Saturday, the third of Beethovens Opus 1 trios for piano, violin and cello. Beethoven had written a lot of pieces in his teens and early Twenties that he didnt publish. He was a good judge of quality, and he waited until he was 25 to publish his first pieces.
The older Haydn was Beethovens teacher, and he loved the first two trios of the set. Haydn had pretty much invented the form, and in his trios the cello tends to double the piano part. Beethoven wrote an independent cello part in the style of Mozart, which is why cellists love playing his1 trios.
But Haydn had reservations about the third trio. It was too brash, too brusque, too abrasive too Beethovenish. It was the sound of the future, Romantic rather than Classical, and it threw quite a scare into old Papa Haydn.
It starts with a sonata movement marked allegro con brio. Mozart had used this direction only once, and Haydn only a few times. Beethoven was to use it a lot. For those of you who survived my Brahms series last year, youll remember sonata format as being 1-2-1-2-development-1-2-coda.
Beethoven starts out with the instruments playing in unison in C minor, his death key. Note that Beethoven doesnt use the kind of long, singing lines that Mozart and Schubert were fond of. He prefers instead to use shorter units of melody; he thinks instrumentally, rather than vocally.
At 1:10 he slides into the second subject, which is in the relative major key, E-flat. (C minor are E-flat Major both have three flats.)
At 2:35 he repeats the exposition.
At 5:07, its development time! He quotes the opening fragment, but takes off into the kind of struggle that defines a Beethoven development. Keys come and go, creating a wonderful kind of instability.
But he settles into C minor again at 6:30 for his recapitulation, but only briefly enough for the cello to take up the theme in C Major, a technique beloved of Mozart. The violin moves the theme to A-flat Major. Its clear that Beethoven is re-composing his recapitulation.
As he cadences in C minor at 7:19, you would expect the second subject in the recap to be in C Major, the corresponding major. (Corresponding minors and majors share the same letter.) But Beethoven pulls off a surprise by placing the second subject in C minor! In effect, in the recap he reverses the role of the major and minor keys.
At 8:15 he begins his coda by reworking his first subject, ending it quickly with no long held notes. Haydn was shocked at the brusqueness.
Pooks a big ol sack of baloney LOL
Howdy! Good to see ya! (((hugs)))
Looks like you’re gonna get to do some wallerin’ of your own when
those concerts start up! Enjoy! :)
