Earworms

July 20, 2013

They burrow. They bore in. They attach themselves inside your head. Earworms, a term once used exclusively for insects, is now the name for those unrelenting tunes that you can’t get out of your head. Songs like, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” the “Barney” song, or my personal nightmare: “It’s a Small World After All.”

They say the only way to rid yourself of the insidious infestation is to replace it with another tune—your “cleaner” song. New words and a fresh tune can crowd out the old.

Maybe we could use a cleaner song for our thought-life as well. When lustful or vengeful thoughts creep into our minds, reading and meditating on God’s Word can help to clean up our thinking.

Scripture tells us to love the Lord “with all [our] heart, with all [our] soul, and with all [our] mind” (Matt. 22:37) and not to “be conformed to this world” but to “be transformed by the renewing of [our] mind” (Rom. 12:2). It instructs us to think about things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy (Phil. 4:8).

When our minds wander to evil, the best “cleaner” is to allow the wisdom of the Bible to permeate our thoughts and hearts (2 Tim. 3:16).

Dear Lord, our desire is to spend time in Your Word.
We know that meditating on Your Word fills our minds
with thoughts of You and helps to keep our thinking
from wandering to evil. Help us to do so.
Character is the sum total of all our thoughts, words, and deeds.

Read: Philippians 4:4-9

If there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. —Philippians 4:8
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 26-28; Acts 22

SEATTLE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

FRIDAY, JULY 19

8 PM Pacific (11 PM Eastern)

Listen live on-line here at KING-FM/98.1 website.

Mozart: Duo for Violin & Viola in G, K. 423

Stefan Jackiw, violin
Che-Yen Chen, viola

Stefan’s last name in pronounced “yock-EVE”; it’s Ukranian. One day when an open rehearsal was delayed, Stefan did the Bach Partita for Solo Violin in E Major for the crowd from memory, and it was a memorable performance.

Beethoven: Quartet for Piano & Strings in E-flat, Op. 16

Adam Neiman, piano
Amy Schwartz Moretti, violin
David Harding, viola
Robert deMaine, cello

Amy heads the Music Department at Mercer University in Macon, which she started from scratch, and she is the second violinist of the Ehnes Quartet. David is Canadian – eh? – and he teaches viola at Carnegie-Mellon in Pittsburgh. Bob is my old buddy, cellist with the Ehnes Quartet and the new First Chair Cello with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Martinu: 3 Madrigals for Violin & Viola, H. 313

Stefan Jackiw, violin
Che-Yen Chen, viola

Saint-Saens: Quartet for Piano & Strings in B-flat, Op. 41

Jeewon Park, piano
Erin Keefe, violin
Richard O’Neill, viola
Edward Arron, cello

Ed and Jeewon are husband and wife, and Ed runs the concerts at both the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art and the University of South Carolina at Beaufort, which I attend on occasion. Richard, half Korean and half Irish-American, is violist with the Ehnes Quartet and a good friend; I can talk shop with him for hours. Erin is Concertmaster (Concert-mistress?) with the Minnesota Orchestra which is on the verge of bankruptcy. We’re all holding our breath for her.

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."

Many Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."

Yeppers - Good local boys (and one sheila) band playing. Do country Aussie stuff great. Aussie country music is pretty much what you hear at home but there’s that little something extra they put into it that makes it different. Good dancing!

TODAY IN HISTORY
PM/1 John Henry Balch, USN
Distinguishes Himself in Battle at Vierzy, France 19 July 1918



PM/1 John Henry Balch, USN (MOH)

From The Medal of Honor Society Web-site:

For gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty, with the 6th Regiment, U.S. Marines, in action at Vierzy, on 19 July 1918. Balch unhesitatingly and fearlessly exposed himself to terrific machinegun and high-explosive fire to succor the wounded as they fell in the attack, leaving his dressing station voluntarily and keeping up the work all day and late into the night unceasingly for 16 hours. Also in the action at Somme-Py on 5 October 1918, he exhibited exceptional bravery in establishing an advanced dressing station under heavy shellfire.

BG UPDATE......

He will.., He’s using business associates of Ron’s to help me with this mess. I don’t doubt it for a minute, even though I get scared, God IS with me.

Thank you so much . :)

=============================================

My DIL is a Coupon Queen. A frugal shopper of the highest degree , she offered today to help plan a meal for after Church. We’re going lo-budget. Ha!

Oh yeah... She’s doing a fantastic job!!!

I love these kids of mine. The girls and their families will be here Saturday.

All is well..!!

===========================================

I went through one of his desk drawers tonight looking for the things I’ll need immediately. He was always organized to the point of being .., overboard. It was sad, he must have been hiding his health problems for awhile as it was a mess. It (filing system) just didn’t have a rhyme or reason.

Sad, very sad....

==========================================

Posted in the Canteen.....

Oh my gosh. OH MY GOODNESS!!! Thank you all for the BEAUTIFUL flowers!!!!!!

They’re so pretty!

I love you all...

I told the kids I need to take a picture for you. Then I looked around and started laughing because at the moment, there’s NO CLEAN SPACE! LOL!

An active 3 year old and a crawling toddler and 3 adults with paperwork leaves much mess. :). A blessed mess. A loving mess.

The baby...he crawls to the pantry. Stands on tippy-toes, opens the pantry. Takes stuff out, puts them on floor, puts them back, closes the door. Rinse. Repeat. Funny....!!!

He takes his face, opens his mouth and SMOOSHES it against the window and moves it back & forth.

I think you need two pictures!! :)

Again, thank you all!! What a blessing you all are

Again, we all thank you.

BG

Actually a little busy, Truck show, radio show, fundraiser and wedding reception tomorrow. Sunday should be a relax day. Need it after this hot, humid week. Right now we have thunderstorms, loud and bright lightening. We need it.

Thank you Ma’am!
