TSMSS: A Medley

Two weeks ago I posted a song by the Heritage, and thought I would like to post another one this week, and maybe more in the following weeks. You might like listening to more of them too. Here's one customer review of the Heritage Singers:

" ... known for their brilliant vocal harmonies, [This] talented group of young, professional musicians feature seven carefully selected vocalists with vocal styles ranging from traditional to contemporary Christian, celebrating 36 years of ministry. The passionate conviction of these musicians shines through their music. Their honesty, integrity and unquestionable commitment to excellence touch a common chord with listeners from every walk of life.

As pastors and evangelists from churches around the world testify, an evening with the Heritage Singers will encourage, edify and inspire you to a deeper love relationship with our Lord. The Heritage Singers . . . implementing a musical message of hope, inspiration and peace . . . reaching people, one life at a time. "

Yesterday I sent a text message to my mother asking her how old was I when I learned to sing He Touched Me. "3 years old, why?" came the reply. I sent another text saying I thought I was like 6 or 7.

A doting uncle, I remember, would say to me, "will you sing that song?... that one with 'shackles'?" That was one moonlit night in the mid 70's. Fast forward to 2009, I think of that uncle and remark in my head, he's sooo still very shackled by his drinking problem. I hope one day he gets his issue sorted.

This is a medley consisting four songs that many of us are familiar with, but I guess would like to hear again and again.

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.
