VIDEO Unlikely Figure OUTS Obama as Muslim Brotherhood member

This video is very edited. Many statements are taken out of context. Many Americans visit a Mosque and have read parts of the KOran as have I. His father does not mean Barak is Muslim. Americans need to realize that we do not give religious freedom here. We are afraid of other religions. We hate what we fear. It is so easy to edit clips of video together and you can easily see the places there were edits. Shalom, Barbara

Daily Post: Looking At Homelessness

It is time to open your eyes and see the suffering here in America.

Slam on the Brakes, Pull Over, Take the Picture

At a stop light I saw this woman washing her by pouring bottled water over it while she stood in street. She was careful to stand over the  grate to not make a mess. There was so much dignity and self assurances in her action it took me a second to realize that what I was witnessing was not normal in my world.

Blogging for the cause of homelessness is something I can see myself doing even with photography. We support a local soup kitchen I will have to figure out how to incorporate that into my post. Any Ideas?  Street photography takes on a whole new meaning when photographing the homeless!

Here is a second more intimate look telling a different story.  Which picture do you prefer?

Another interesting place we visited in Switzerland was the music museum in Baud.  This mureum featers a collevtion of music boxes through to the original first grammaphones of the vynal record era.  The impression these intricate intruments left on me was that the computure in rythmic fashion was indeed already designed in the late eighteen hundreds.  Let me show a few of these fascinating instruments.

The classical and better known music box

Yverdon-Baulmes 39 music

The heavy punched cardboard paper music producer

Yverdon-Baulmes 47 music tape

Yverdon-Baulmes 48 music tape

Light weight punched paper music score

The the forerunner of the vynal record, a metal disc with holes punched to allow the music bars to produce the chosen tune.

Yverdon-Baulmes 51 music record

Could this music maker be the advent of the later telex ticker tape and card computer?

Yverdon-Baulmes 52 music tape

And finally this one needs no introduction I hope.  The old grammaphone, vynal disc and wooden needle.

Yverdon-Baulmes 54 grammaphone

Amazing how precise every needle, metal spike and punched…
