Older DT Members, Please Watch This Video!

My DW was in kitchen this morning and reached too far from swivel dining table chair. The chair slipped out from underneath her and she took a hard fall on tiled kitchen floor on her backside. She just had gel knee shots in both knees this week, so she couldn't use her knees (still sore) to get up and didn't want me to lift her under arms. So, I did some quick research on YouTube and found this excellent instructional video on how to get up if you've fallen, and might be injured, etc.

How To Get Up From the Floor- MacGyver Style




After we watched the 10 min. video, she used the "Glute Scoot" to get to the stairs and then used the "Step Hip Hike" to get up to sit on second step. Then she could pull herself up with the stair railing to stand. No permanent damage, but a bit sore.

This is good practical knowledge to have if I'm away from home if it happens again. So, all you DT members with bad knees, old or out of shape, please watch this video and practice the techniques!

melbrod OK, the moonlight sonata one just isn't up to it...no dynamics and the hiss is overwhelming the music (and it wasn't that good anyway), but I sorta got this one to work. I think it was written for the harpsichord?? I apparently used some kind of weird orchestra setting on the keyboard when I made the CD, which covers a multitude of sins (though not the finger freezes) but does make it sound rather....funky.

Since of course there is no video, I filmed Hairy's response to it as I recorded it from the original. He's apparently not a music lover, though I did like the way his ears went UP when the music was over. He's the best part of the whole production.

The sound quality is....well...just as you might imagine--a CD made directly from a not hugely-expensive keyboard with a very strange instrument setting, put into my blue ray using TV speakers, "filmed" on my camera, and then copied over to youtube--not good, but the quality probably matches the playing.

And my laptop's speakers stink too; it sounds better on my headphones.

So I did dig it up, and can't figure out how to get it here. The one and only disc drive in the house has given up the ghost; I tried actually re-recording it playing it on my blue ray and using a camera movie setting, but......it is severely lacking.

Especially since it wasn't that good in the first place.
Ahh darn

One day I will try and record something - lets see maybe in 3 years!

Yup...open up my skull and you'll find this big nasty barely-scabbed-over slash zig-zagging across my brain.

I'm a slow healer. You should see all of the little puncture wounds I have from the pointed barbs you guys throw at me *sniff* But I just keep a stiff upper lip and bear up under your incessant barrage. It's an eternal question well put by Shakespeare--


“Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them?”

My mother worked with me every day until she could not! Physically she was a beast for such a small woman but her brain was her down fall. I keep a large area for tools and a lot of pieces parts. They are grouped by electrical , plumbing , different machinery pieces in certain spots and it goes on and on.

I thought she was just sweeping up in that area and was doing a thorough job since she was spending quite a bit of time back there but it turned she was organizing things for me I still have not recovered..its in here somewhere!!! It has to be!
Bless her heart i know she wanted to be helpful...she helped my realize that alcohol was not such a bad thing.

I know it has Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (first movement ) on it. Maybe I can figure out a way to get it loaded here and subject you folks to it.

The first movement isn't horrendously hard. You could take a look at it if you wanted.

Edited to add--To me, Glen Gould always plays things too fast--this one is a good example of him zipping through a piece--not in the mainstream for that particular one's tempo. Though the first one you put up seems slow to me

Here's another version--Wilhelm Kempff, a master--with an in-between tempo



The 2nd movement:



And the 3rd--some mistakes (he was getting old here), but feeling and interpretation-wise, ahhh. Shows you don't have to be perfect, so long as you keep up the tempo and the feeling, and don't cringe and make faces--those make sure everybody notices your errors:

Yeah Gould is quick tempo on quite a few things. But for some reason I seem to listen to his stuff. But I do like his slower versions of Goldberg variations of 1981. I listen to this almost every day:
Glenn Gould - Bach - Goldberg Variations BWV 988 - Aria Da Capo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CguL...&start_radio=1

I even like his humming

One more piece by Gould - seems slows it down vs. others.
Glenn Gould- Turkish March https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTZ33EVK3Ug

I like Wilhelm Kempff as well!

Yes please do post your playing! Would be great to hear

You cracked me up!

LOL

I don't have enough money to buy a house like a mini-mansion, nor do I want one!

Problem is, the land is being eaten up. It hurts my feelings. And I am serious about that.

Progress makes me sad.

This entire world we live in is all about me me me.

Oops!

A rant slipped out there.

I am sorry! Please excuse me?

Once many many years ago when I had only been married for a year or so, my in-laws from New Orleans came to visit us in Chicago. It was the first time they had actually stayed with us. Both my X and I had innocently gone off to work leaving them in possession, and when we came back that evening, my MIL proudly announced that she had cleaned out our closet and organized it--nice labeled plastic bins etc for EVERYTHING.

I weakly said......uh.....thanks....while mentally reviewing everything that had been stashed away in there.

She truly was just trying to be nice (organization was her thing), I know, and there was nothing incriminating that I could think of, but it left a scar.....witness me remembering the occasion to post up here after (finger-counting) 40 some-odd years.

I was loaded up with computer bag, lunch bag and something else trying to go through the front door for work. Keeping her back with my legs and blocking the door and trying to squeeze through the opening. She was having none of that - out she went. After the rabbit she saw last night. Went directly to the side of the house and fence where it was.

Other similar story was - Molly our first Dober; not sure how old any more 1 year old? Anyways was riding on my bike with her on leash (large walk path area with lots of green grass and sidewalks) Somehow collar broke.

She started running towards a busy road. I jumped off bike calling and running after her. She kept going like it was a game. She wouldn't stop. So I thought well chasing her is just making her go towards the road more. I yelled Hey Molly (in bright as I could tones). Got her attention and I ran the opposite direction. She made a loop and came running after me.

Long story short I didn't do that again - although I had done it many times with her and O.D. before. Guess like many things all fun and games till it isn't.


Couldn't trust Axel one minute off leash anywhere!

My Ex had a lake house that we went to every weekend.

My first interaction with Axel going to the lake house was, the last stop before you got to your weekend getaway. The last gas/convenience store.

Axel jumped out of a half opened car window and took off across the parking lot. He wanted to greet the dog he saw sitting in a parked car. That dog was behaving, Axel was not!

We always went with our city across the street neighbors. Between the four of us, there were 5 dogs in tow.

We would walk them down to the boat ramp and let them swim. Leashes back on for the walk back to the house.

Good memories!

We had a Dobe and Brittany. They had a Cocker, Lab and a German Short-hair.

Takes about 7:00 minutes
Rousseau Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata (1st Movement) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbTVZMJ9Z2I

Then same piece but at different speed - completes in 4:15 minutes
Glenn Gould - Moonlight Sonata pt. I (Beethoven) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WD6pGV69fJI

And somewhat in between at 5:13 minutes
Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata 1st movement (Adagio Sostenuto) - Valentina Lisitsa https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ea8oX-A8swk

Which one do you prefer? I like them all...But might prefer Gould's - may depend on the mood.

You would not enjoy life by me, Bug! Turkeys sleep in the pine trees surrounding our home, and when they wake up in the morning, they basically fall out of the trees onto our roof. It was quite an adjustment when we first got here!
