CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (Jan. 14, 2008) The first major snowfall of the New Year blankets the USS Constitution. Despite the weather "Old Ironsides," remained open for free public tours. At 210 years-old, USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, manned by 67 active-duty United States Sailors and visited by nearly half a million visitors annually.

The Star Spangled Banner – Verse Four
(Click)


Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

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."

In English his name would translate to Louis Beetgarden. So we can refer to Ludwig van Beethoven as “Lou”.

He was born in Bonn in December 1770 to a family of Dutch extraction. His grandfather, also named Ludwig, was one of the great choirmasters of his era. His father Johann (“Jack”) Beethoven was a musician who succumbed to alcohol and a dissolute life. Because Lou was born in the German city-state of the Rhineland, his first languages were both French and German.

Lou showed early promise as a musician, and Jack hired teachers to give hm a solid background. By his early teens, Lou had nailed down a court musician’s job and supported the family as Jack sunk more deeply into the bottle.

Lou was 22 when Jack died, and he headed off to Vienna, the core of German musical life. He was a gifted pianist, and by now his compositions were beginning to show some sophistication. Mozart had died the year before, and Baron Gottfried von Swieten, who had championed Mozart’s works, now took Beethoven under his wing.

Gottfried had a good ear for musical talent. He introduced Lou to Prince Karl Lichnowski, who provided a roof over Lou’s head, money, and who treated him like grandson. This connection also brought Franz Josef Haydn into Lou’s life as his new teacher.

That relationship was rocky from the start and only got worse. Neither particularly liked the other, and Lou turned to Antonio Salieri – who later was to become Schubert’s mentor. It was a very tight musical world in Vienna; everybody knew everybody else.

You can follow Beethoven’s output via symphonies, concertos, sonatas for mixed instruments, or string quartets. But his greatest area of output was his 32 piano sonatas. Two of them, the Opus 49 duo, were juvenile works, and Lou didn’t want them published. That leaves 30 mature works, which we can cover in 15 weeks.

The first thing you notice is that Lou’s approach was different from Mozart’s. Wolfgang wrote every melodic line for human voice, which means that you can sing a Mozart line no matter what instrument he wrote it for. Beethoven thinks in short, concentrated bursts of melody. It’s a different way of composing.

The Piano Sonata in F minor, Op. 2/1, dates from 1794 when Lou was 24, and he dedicated it to his teacher Haydn. It begins with a device known as the Mannheim Rocket, an upward thrust of notes that Mozart was particularly fond of using. The first movement is in 2/2 and is marked simply allegro. The triplet grupetto that ends each phrase turns out to be something more than that because Lou does quite a bit with it. Tonal instability leads to a second subject in the expected key of A-flat. The exposition is repeated.
At 2:14 he begins development by switching between keys and moving the melody between the left and right hands, then bringing back that little grupetto.
The short development leads to a recapitulation at 3:07. His second subject, formerly in the major mode, appears now in F minor. This is one of Lou’s “So there!” endings, defying the world.

Lou sets his adagio (“at rest”) slow movement at second position in 3/4 in F Major. The opening melody has a Mozartean feel to it, phrased in singing lines. The middle section turns to D minor and then C, before returning to F for the opening melody. It ends quietly.

In third position, Lou opts for an allegretto minuet in 3/4 in F minor in the usual format: AA-BB-CC-DD-A-B.

For a finale, Lou returns to F minor and 2/2 for a movement marked prestissimo, which means “like a bat out of hell.” It’s in a kind of sonatina format, and here we get a glimpse of the fire that Beethoven was to apply to his later works. The second subject is in C minor via A-flat but is no less vehement.
At 15:53, the middle section is not a sonata development but a quiet interlude, a port in the storm.
At 17:34 he recaps. The second subject appears now in F minor. Once again he ends it with a bang.

Beethoven: Piano Sonata in F minor, Op. 2/1

Thank You, Connie, for your prayers.

if God is trying to get my attention, He has succeeded.

I really do need a break, but I guess I’m not completely broken yet, so it might have to wait.

Linda will be having X-Rays tomorrow, as there seems to have been some “liver involvement’ secondary to the infection she suffered. I really don’t know where this is going yet.

Barenboim is a decent Beethoven pianist.

In English his name would translate to Louis Beetgarden. So we can refer to Ludwig van Beethoven as “Lou”.

Ga head...I'll stick with with the former! lol

Good evening Prof & thank you for the music & education! *Hugs*

Beethoven is a man’s composer, a really macho man. The troops should find him interesting.
